[WIP] MCRN Tachi - The Expanse

12 posts in this topic

Hello,

 

Just wanted to share my Work in Progress:

mHb529d.png

The Ship will be divided into 4 main parts + any other attachments (like BD Armory Weapons, Antennas, possibly the "disguise" version tanks)

Planned Main Modules:
- Bridge/Command Section
- Crew Compartment
- Service Module w KIS Storage
- Engine
- POSSIBLE Disguise Tanks

Current Status of Development:
- 3D Mesh (mostly) Ready
- Engine Module and Service Module configured and imported into KSP

TODO:
- Finish Modelling (I suck at this badly)
- Textures (no skills here :P)
- Unity Import of finished Meshes with Textures
- CFG Tweaks
- Start Thinking about IVA
- Animated Docking Collar which will fit Some Docking Port (i am open for suggestions if i should take stock Ports or borrow from some other mod with the author's permission)

My first public mod so any suggestions welcome (i did only CFG tweaks in the past)

At the moment it's scaled to about twice the diameter of Stock S3 Fuel tanks - no final decision on sizing at this point - judging from the visuals tho, the size is about 70m

Edit: found a sketch reference: Lenght is 46m

@Jasseji Why are you making mesh of the whole ship at once? Isn't it easier to make parts of it at there own than to split the whole ship mesh?

Awesome! I was hoping someone would make a mod for The Expanse. :D

They are split already, i just rendered them together, easier for me to get a view of the whole when the parts are layers in one modeller file

Nice, looking good.  :)  I'm looking forward to ongoing development of this, it looks like it might fit in well (conceptually, not necessarily structurally) with Absolution's 'First Light' ship.

Will there be a use to these parts other than fitting them together to make the Tachi?

Going to Duna, Jool, and Eeloo, joyriding, loveing up the protomolecule and it's ring....

What I'm asking is is there a way of fitting these parts together other than what is shown in the OP?
