Unicorn redesign

Postby Sciriez » Thu Jul 10, 2014 12:33 pm

Hi all,

Hope you're enjoying the new Sparrow. Now I'm working on the Unicorn.

Again, the original had some great character, so I decided to do a re-design of the current ship, though with more beef and storage space.

I've decided to keep the same look for the first 3 tiers, then a new one for the next 3 tiers and continue like that. Giving some consistency to the ships.

Let me know what you think of this design. If there's anything you dislike, I'm all ears. I'm working on something else at the moment as well, so I wont start a new concept until I get some feedback on this one.

Thanks!

I think the top engine should sit a little lower. Bring it in tight. Will make it look more balanced and not hanging out there ready to get knocked off going through an underpass.

Not a massive fan of the nose and I think the squares at the back could perhaps be less squarish.

Okay, brought down the top thruster, removed the nose-piece and removed some of the pods.

Yeah, those changes make a big difference. I much prefer the rear design of the top version by the way.

The ship looks bloated, I think the three prong thing is much better suited to a slim ship.

Hi all,

Thanks for all of the replies. I've tried one more tri-wing idea, and we'll see if you like it, if not I'll try something new. I do have an idea for a slimmer body, but I'm not sure I'll use it.

Here's a basic concept:

Also, textures are very slap-dash, as they have been on all concepts.

Let me know what you think.

Bad for landings. I like the other.

That design inverted (two down one up) could be landable and look cool*

Cool as in I think it looks cool, and that usually means it doesn't so take that with a grain of salt. :D
