Quoting trumpeter87,

Just curious, how are you guys all submitting your contest entries? Are you submitting a single view or a combination of views? Or are you submitting one view and then a link to a video? I'm just torn about the best way and figured I'd ask what you all are doing... I'm finishing up a few designs and I'm really excited to post them here.

 

I am sending mine as single views. I think most are as well and I just do not want to mess with Paint Shop Pro to put together a 4 view or 5 view collage of my ships.

I submitted the same views I posted here, except for the salvage ship which I added a video (posted link here also) because of the animation.

Just submitted my latest ship. 

The Krynn Convincer
(a light large allround combat ship)

Convince the ignorants of the truths of the Krynn faith, and if they refuse send them on their way to heaven, hell, or whatever afterlife they believe in.

Edladner, if you want it you can grab a zip file with the design here.

Quoting Edladner,
sulley1 your ship is a perfect addition to the terran fleet

Thank you Edlander, that's exactly what I'm going for.

Quoting DARCA1213,
Sure, but then sully1 showed up with his metaphoric super model girlfriend. LOL (its a effective design that can handle attacks from most angles, nice sully1 +1 )

Thanks Darca, that's exactly what I am going for also. I really want to mod the game to make it as realistic as possible. I want ships with designs that make sense: they are compact, have good firing angles, and therefore have a generally wedge shaped hull. I really can't wait for the combat viewer and the mod tools. Gal Civ has always been one of my favorite games.

And another one.

The Drengin Collector.
(Large cannon armed survey ship. The intention is if it becomes possible to capture enemy ships to redesign this ship for that purpose)

Gathers valuables of any kind: space debris, ships, slaves. It does not matter, the collector can collect them all. And if fools resist, the collector has sufficient firepower to turn those fools into space debris.

Note: if a module will be created to capture enemy ships, this is the ship to place it on.

Finaly I made my entry for the contest, coming with a brand new engine of a yet not encountered aquatic race:   Singularity Drive


YouTube Video: 


You see a scout ship, made with the internal designer tool, equipped with the Singularity Drive. Ship and engine are only concepts and designed for Stardocks Ship Designer contest. Currently I built in conventional engines at the first SD-engine ring but if it makes into the game there should be a unique one. 

SingularityDrive concept: http://www.mediafire.com/view/w8c8r7k84egfwgy/SingularityDrive_Concept.pdf

GalCiv3 designer file: http://www.mediafire.com/download/ysudbva66j39x2h/SingularityScoutDesign.rar

 

(besides: I do have problems with the designer. When designing a ship, save it and see it in my ship rooster to build. But when I re-start GalCiv3 it is gone. Any idea how to solve?)

This is my contest entry ship, the Subspace Shredder:

 

 

Video with the animation:

 

 

It is an experimental large hulled Terran ship.  The back engine area is animated with large rotor blades.  

Was a lot of fun building the ship, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of what others are making.

Came out looking a bit like an Eradica titan, but that's not a bad thing

Thanks, Ed. I agree, it does have a bit of a Star Wars vibe going on--though that wasn't intentional... it just kind of happened, but I am really pleased that it did because it really captures my overall aesthetic for ship designs (reminds me of some of my favorite custom GCII designs--only this is WAY more sophisticated by the sheer wonder that is the GCIII ship designer (thank you dev team!)).
