Soma Explorer Ships 1.1.1

For all your pseudo-Vaygr needs

  1. MShadowy
    The following ships were intended to be part of a race mod, a tribally organized group of knowledge seeking nomadic starbarians called the Soma. As things currently stand, this species is unlikely to see release and as such I've decided to release the ships they'd fly as a standalone mod for anyone who is interested.

    Technically speaking this isn't quite finished, but I have no idea how to resolve the issue giving me trouble--specifically I would like to put in a hatch over the entrance to the cockpit/bridge area, however I've had no luck in getting it to appear for reasons that remain unclear.

    -------------------------------------------

    Features:
    Support for all default races, and easily converted for custom species.

    Hopefully ships that are cool and with a nice Homeworld/Vaygr vibe.

    This is really well done, reminds me greatly of the Starship Yamato, or the Soyokaze from Irresponsible Captain Tylor. The later stages have a wonderfully Halo-like feeling to them as well. I did notice that the use symbol is nowhere near the interface for the ship's ai. But you still can use it from the correct point. :p

    Awesome. Some built-in support for some of the more popular custom races would be nice as a later update, maybe even recolors for different races, but there's certainly nothing wrong with it as it is now.

      Thanks. Definitely suggestions to keep in mind, and probably a good expansion point for the mod, even if the race attached to these ships does actually materialize at some point.
