You should do a little research into naval formations to, just to add a touch of realism.
Actually I was in the Navy for 10 years.

Just out of curiosity: What 3d program are you using?
Posted 31 May 2009 - 08:03 AM
Well, as Kahn would learn the hard way ... its hard to put 2D naval tactics into a 3D environment. The Battle Barges are near the center (like normal naval combat) with the Strike Cruiser and Frigates surrounding them. That is pretty basic naval fleet organization as I recall.

Please be making a game

Sweet. Well then nevermind
Just for fun sorry. But if you know someone working on a game that needs 3D models .... please let me know.

Right, so why arn't they in formation!
Just because space is 3-D doesn't mean tried and true (and recognizable) formations should be discarded.
Ahem, yes it does mean they should be discarded.
Look at what Aircraft did to the naval arena. Now imagine those bombers being Battleships instead and you'll see why you need to adopt changes to formations.

Also, if I do remember correctly, There is a BFG mod project going on for the PC game Sins of a Solar Empire. They may already have the models already designed and everything but I'm sure they could use your help if your interested (and if they're still working on it. I"m not really sure)

I think after I finish the Hunter-class I'll start on the 3 AdMech ships I have reference pics for.

We are the Sons of Russ, for the All-Father and the Wolf King. From now, until the End Days and the Wolftime. We play by our rules, and noone elses.

I WAS gonna make a comment on scale, but then I remembered the source would be a G.S. Soto novel and thought, "The hell does that guy know?" He had strike cruisers and frigates actually docked up against the battlebarge in one of the first 3 dawn of war books. The scale of the barge would have to be somewhere on the scale of about 8 kilometers to make this even possible...
Ahem, a Battlebarge IS 8 Kilometres long.
The Vessel you see in the Foreground of this video as the Battlebarge "passes by" is the Strike Cruiser you used as your pimped ride for the whole game.
As a size measure.
Battlebarge: 6-10 Kilometres.
Strike Cruiser: 2.5 - 3 Kilometres.
Frigates 1-1.5 Kilometres
Destroyers: 600m-1 Kilometre.
