Um...Can we compile a list of Dawn Forge space ships, based on real Naval Ships.
We need to find minimum/maximum armament, armour, crew etc. and shrink/expand them to match LEGO Building standards.
Here is my Favourite:
Armament: Single 16"-22" Double barreled main gun. 14 Light 50-70 cal. Machine guns for defence.
Armour: .7 (2 feet-ish) meters Stainless steel
LEGO DF corvette:
ARMAMENT: Twin 22" Double barreled main guns.
8-10 twin 50 cal. Machine guns for in-close defence from boarders/Small fighters.
ARMOUR: .7 meters (2 feet-ish)Brick built or plate and tile built angular, sloping walls to deflect enemy shells. And useful for RADAR deflection.
LENGTH: 70-160 studs.
Anyone got any more ships, that have plausible use in LEGO for DF? Please try to use "up to date" info, as we will need as close to "fancy" and hi-tech as we can get.
As I am planning a Corvette right now, but don't expect to see it for a while.... Permalink
Actually Martin, I donít want to get too specific with the details and standards of DF. I would prefer to keep things a little simpler to allow for creativity within the theme instead of getting bogged down in strict standards and minutia. I hope Iím not discouraging you, and if that kind of thing helps you with your builds, thatís awesome, but I donít want to apply it to the DF theme as a whole. For now, I want to just stick with the simple guidelines that Iíve set up and leave it at that. I hope you understand. Permalink
Yeah I was throwing it out there as so that I can show you guys what I am planning...but I was just meaning to say that if there are any more ships people know of/like, I will work out the basics so that I can build them....as not too many people can build SHIPS.
Ok...anyway...can I get you to lock this thread. please.
It was just a "throw it out there" kinda idea Permalink
No worries, Martin. Iím going to leave the thread open in case anyone wants to talk about DF starship ideas. All I meant is that I didnít want any true DF starship standards created here that go beyond the overall DF guidelines. But ďthrowing ideas out thereĒ is what discussion threads are all about, so from that angle, feel free. Permalink
Um, I have a question about DF ships. Are we assuming that there is artificial gravity in these ships like in Battlestar Galactica (and every other sci fi tv show and movie except Space Oddessy) Permalink
