Check Out This Warhammer 40k Battlefleet Gothic Inspired Corvette in Space Engineers
I really like the floating Gothic Vatican look of Warhammer 40k, BattleFleet Gothic. Now in Warhammer 40k lore. These ships are kilometers long. With upwards of millions of servitors. This corvette is scaled down appropriately for space engineers and my current processing power( my computer starts choking even with this scale).
I tried to stay with the general Gothic styling of the Warhammer 40k, Battlefleet Gothic metaverse. This is by no means a scale or even accurate replica. I took the general philosophy and styling of the imperial fleet ( dark Gothic ). I adapted it to the constraints of the Space Engineers modeling and physics engine. Apparently the excepted philosophy in imperial space warfare is to break up the enemy formation with front firing missiles or torpedoes. Then charge right through the middle and broadside.
This design is an excellent brawler. The front heavy armored ram is several large grid blocks thick Certain variants of this Warhammer 40k Battlefleet Gothic Corvette are excellent battlers and can take several direct hits to the front armored ram. With the gravity cannon variant this Corvette can cut most ships in half with one burst up front. On each side are 3+ rocket pods for broadsidery. Along with the triple rocket pod turret up front for strafing. Inertial acceleration is adequate.
Since the closest thing to void shields in Space Engineers are the gravity generators at this point. I have also been experimenting with gravity based ore shields for the design. This is still not survival ready. I have to model the interior and seal it up. Then I’ll put up this Warhammer 40k, BattleFleet Gothic inspired corvette on Steam. More to come.
