    If there are any ship builders out there, be it model, real, or designs, here is your challenge. Design the best ships you can in HM3, name them and do a history for them. No limits, land, sea, air or space.Surprised

    This is Starlight Hunter, a spaceship I created to go along with one of my many fan fiction stories. Starlight Hunter is the only one of its kind, and it was designed and assembled by a small group of people. Most of the parts used in building were taken from other ships or ordered as faked replacement parts for something else.

     

    Some of the ideas I used when creating the Starlight Hunter can be tracked down to Nautilus in Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. It is one of my favourite novels, but I wasn’t actively thinking it, when planning the Hunter, I only noticed the resemblance later myself. I’m sorry for the Finnish “tags” in the second picture, but I’m just too rotten lazy to change them and upload the thing again.http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/072/d/7/starlight_hunter_by_dionnejinn-d4sm02t.jpghttp://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/324/c/6/starlight_hunter___tagged_by_dionnejinn-d5lkv1c.png

    EDIT: Links to pictures replaced with deviantART links because ShoutWiki collapsed again…

    EDIT (19.11.12): Finally got around turning the tags in English on the schematics picture.

    Sorry about the messy placement of the pics above. I was trying to put them side by side, but apparently that didn’t work.

     

    EDIT: Made a test edit by moving the pictures neatly. Working fine.

    That is cool I like it. I do see the Jules Verne in it. I never read his books but I love the movies made from them. Even the bad ones. It also has a every fishy look to it that I like. They say that space is like water in some ways and I have always wondered why more people didn't think of space ships that look like fish. Great work.

    Verne's books are a great read. You should try them. And as of the fishy look on the ship, that is exactly what I had in mind when planning on Starlight Hunter. One of the first appearances for the ship I came up with was a conversation between a captain of another ship and his sensor officer, like this:

     

    Captain:Have you identified that approaching ship yet?

    Sensor officer:No, sir. Is has been made from some unknown composite material and the hull design doesn't match with any known ship types. It looks like… some kind of a… fish.

    I had to replace the original links to my Starlight Hunter pictures, because ShoutWiki, where they were hosted, collapsed again.

    here is a S.A.T.A.V. (Stealth All-Terrain Assault Vehicle)
    The driver is in front, and controls the emergency rocket boosts and fog lights. Two passengers are in the back, who control the right and left hidden silenced machine guns in the hood of the S.A.T.A.V. Another passenger can stand between the two back seats firing a gun out of the top hatch. Any passenger can activate the emergency missiles and flares in the back.
