This thread will be for everything Gyisache that has pictures. RED means ENGINE
Gyisache Ship Line Schematic
Right here are schematics, preliminaries really, for one line of ships; small, medium, large and huge sizes of ship. No fighters, one model each.
Actually, there are 10 other pages of sketches floating around in a trashcan somewhere, but IMHO, this is the best of the lot. Please don't compare these to calamari cruisers, I know what they look like...
Anyways the grey lines don't mean anything and the red boxes denote engine exhausts. The design of these ships adheres strictly to this philosophy:
Utilae wrote:The Gyisache ships should have the following traits:
-able to retreat/runaway ie speed
-small, stealthy, not noticeable
-individually small, but together a group of them are a 'flock'. Like a school of fish, they can come together to look like a bigger fish.
And my solutions for those requisites.
Able to run away
To do this, I gave em' symmetrical engine blocks. These wing shaped ships have engines in front that are just as powerful as in back. It was a novel approach I thought, instead of just attaching them to a huge rocket motor (which I did consider)
Small and stealthy
I suggest dark shades then, even though these are not colored. Various shades of taupe would be a good color for their ships. Also, they look nice and sleek for the purpose of looking small, stealthy and speedy.
A school of fish; small alone, big together.
I'm not sure if I misunderstood this one or not. The larger ships are composed of many ovoid ships put together in a particular formation. If you look closely, each of the ovoid shapes are really supposed to be ships, though you wouldn't know it without being told that beforehand. To be honest, I think I failed miserably, but I did my best. I really have no idea how to this.
