    Re: Building spaceships

    I was thinking about that, but it ended up looking really weird compared to the lances placed on the sides. Of course I can heavily modify the prow to make the lance look better.

    Re: Building spaceships

    Here's a question. When mounting a cannon on the prow, how do you plan on showing the difference between the Lance and your version of the Nova Cannon? Shorter barrel and wider bore?

    Its' hard to judge what would look good. When I first saw the cannon mounted in the center of the prow structure I thought of a unicorn. That's partially why it looks strange to me. Maybe if the mount was lower, not quite on the chin but close, it would give the impression of a rhino.

    If you believe that mounting the lance at the top of the prow doesn't look good I trust you.

    The Nova Cannon is a totally different ballgame, apparently it can only be mounted on cruisers or battleships since its engines help out against the intense recoil. Thing is that the Nova Cannon is basically a giant railgun. I'll be designing something completely different for that one.

    I might play with that. Not fully sure yet since such a modular kit for 'just a frigate' would make the kit a bit risky (more that it might make the kit too expensive). But it's something I still need to ponder about and toy with.

    The lance itself would look good, that's not the problem. As seen with the Destroyer, it works. But compared next to the other lances it becomes a bit odd.

    Designing it as a railgun means you have my attention good sir. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

    A modular frigate kit does sound a bit much. Difficult to plan and expensive to buy. I'll have a clearer set of feedback once the kit I ordered wings its' way across the pond to me.

    I take your point regarding the lance placement. Best of luck with working on it. In the end. you've got to make what you like. I know I'll likely purchase a pack or two of each destroyer design when they are released. Best of luck to you.
