My review:

Underconstruction, previews of the R'kallian fleet being built for Adrik Thorsen.

Production Notes:

Created using 3DSMax 5, I tried a cartoon paint + ink texture for the ships. The fleet is quite dark, many images have already been brightened from their base stealthy nature using Paint Shop Pro 7's Auto-Contrast Enhancement feature.

WOW, I cant wait to kick their ass (I mean that with the most respect, I love them, great job!)

I love this a lot, it looks celshaded and beautiful. Problems? The satellite doesn't do anything for me, and the Battle Cruiser appears to be a mine... Other than that, wonderful.

A beautiful shipset. The cell-shading gives it a slightly cartoon look, like really good anime. It does an amazing job accentuating the form of the ship while de-accentuating distracting details present in other shipsets. I love it!

What?!? Their emblem is a cheap ripoff of the Romulan Star Empire! What gives?

Agreements with Tzryylon, but the ships are cool, too. Mabye if the Romulan theme was carried out through the race, it would be cooler...

Neat looking, but is really jarring in the game as the only cell-shaded ship out there.

Indeed, its a good shipset. Mind if I convert it for use for SE3?

Posted by: Janeil Harricharan, 2006-02-15

Janeil, if you ever visit again - please send me your email (USy@mkv25.net) - there is already an SE3 shipset that this was loosely based from. If you've made theconversion then I'd like to see that.

Posted by: Markavian, 2006-03-04

Yes, I have visited again. Quite by chance, actually. I will let you see it, and I will e-mail you soon.

An interesting design. The reddish spheres that look like cockpits sort of ruin the illusion of size, but it would make an interesting addition to any game. I'm not sure that this should be the only cell-shaded shipset out there, though. More should be designed.

Don't imagine them as cockpits, imagine them as control decks - a big red dome that encloses 10-50 R'Kallian officers where they can command their vessel from.
