The space pirates hold their loot in a secret base on Alta-5,
Besides shooting down satellites and attacking the GF space station,
they capture and steal cargo ships for goods and personnel, or kidnap for ransom.
The blade in the front is to ram and rip enemy ships, it s quite destructive...
The turrets and torpedoes are long range weapons,
the side cannons are mostly used against weak spots like windows,
as they re conventional steel balls cannons.
While the outside hull is made out of wood,
it s only decoration, the inside is steel.
The captain s cabin is just above the engine bay.
They unload as quickly as they can,
the operation only takes a few minutes to keep their location secret.
The people who might have witnessed this, don t return to talk about it...
The captured are often women, for ransoms,
slaves, or motivate men like candies, after months without affection,
the men will do pretty much anything the captain says
to have company in their bunks...
They can also be sold as slaves to Globolopolis s clubs,
or be recruited as crewmates.
The pirates will trade the goods for equipment, weapons,
anything that they need, but, rumors say that they amassed quite a fortune by now...
The little all terrain vehicle is kept in the ship afterwards,
it s used when landing on planets to transport or raiding.
Pirates carry all kinds of firearms...
Bears are not afraid of them...
They got used to their presence...
If they get too close, the pirates can make noises to reppel them...
CREATOR S LOG;
I finally finished the pirate ship,
I used most of my super star destroyer do make it,
the interior is done, but, I keep it for a story, xd.
I m now at work to finish the hospital, service garage,
but, I finished the dining room of the hotel yesterday.
as usual, I ll comment back to your page if you do.
I can so you didnt take much inspiration from
Space Pirate Captain Harlock huh ???
IF the color was different than grey, and had some more details, then it would have worked much better.
The wooden cabin is very well integrated with the "metal" though
Quoting matt rowntRee
thanks Matt! the city + space pirates toghether should provide a interesting threat for the GF Cybercity, or the Metal legion, it took some time to build it all, but, it should pay up!
I saw the first picture and thought "this is good" until I saw the wood paneling at the back and thought "this is fantastic!"
The blend of the two themes was a great creative idea and you've done it so well.
I want to see it in battle, with those cannons blazing!
Normaly when people create Space Pirates, they always keep it very space'ish. But you managed to maintin some pirate feel in it. That i respect. i really love your cabin, it fit very well on a space pirate ship. (Evenhough it would fit even more at a normal Pirate ship )
And i know what im talking about hehe.
The ship itself is great aswell, and the rock and wood work is pretty good aswel. All in all
7/5 nice job Franky
Totally epic build Mr CF. Great idea. I really like the old and new mix. The back of the ship is my favourite along with the old school cannons. A great piece of work. Has anyone been made to walk the plank on this ship?
A truly amazing design! The way you kept some sort of a ship-like shape yet incorporated modern systems is great, and the rear with the wooden decorations is really neat, because it really makes the ship look like a real pirate ship. Great build man!
