... lol It's a futuristic sci-fi. Just because it doesn't exist now, doesn't mean it won't be made: P
Process: The iron is mined from planets by Planet Crackers as they also gather other materials used to strengthen the product. The metals, brought back to a refinery, is melted down and stripped of much of the contaminants. Then, being transferred to one of the near to base planets, the metal is stripped of the microscopic contaminants over a 48 hour period. The entire planet is composed of these facilities, so it allows for the process to pump out large amounts of clean metal. Then, through a careful process of molding the metal by pouring it into special vats for specific hull types, the metal is monitored by heat resistant and vacuum clean machines, altering the process as the metal cools, to squeeze the spaces out of the metal, bringing it closer together on the microscopic scale and making the metal strong, dense, and thin compared to other types of armor that would be as strong as it. This process allows for the dense metal to be created into the super dense nano-steel and shipped by mass freight with high security escort, to Shakuras for use in the armoring of ships. Juggernaughts tend to get the reinforced nano-steel, where there are even more connections between the basic cells of the metal. This takes longer to create the stronger mesh of the metal, but increases its endurance and strength by over 50-80%. When finally placed on the ships, the plates are welded together by machines to make sure there is as few gaps as possible, and practically merging the plates together. With the plates being merged, it creates a single shell of metal and is attached to the frame of the ship itself, several times over to create a near unshakable ship.
With this frame and hull armour, the ship may have half a foot of this material and be well armored. Destroyers and carriers have 1 foot of this material across the ship, and the BSJ Shakuras has 3 feet. The Planet Crackers each come with 5 feet. Heavily armored, the Planet Crackers tend to be slow, but mostly because the engines are not turned up to huge amounts as they tend to end up sitting around 1 planet for a long time in mining operations. The BSJ (Black Sun Juggernaught) Shakuras has several large engines which allow it to maneuver well and keep up a nice speed while remaining well armored. The guns tend to be welded to the outside of the ship with an attachment inside the ship that it latches onto. This allows for easy removal of turrets if damaged and easy replacements of said turrets. The nano-steel, strengthened by the other materials in the process (melted down at once and makes its way to the molds) help strengthen the metal and provides a bit more endurance to the metal, giving them a long life on a ship if not managed to be ripped off. The blast doors of the BSJ Shakuras have 5 feet of reinforced nano-steel as fighter bays tend to be a popular target for kamikazis and bombs by those hoping to cripple the performance of Black Sun fighters.
This is the nano-steel creation and use process. I hope you realize that I thought of different armor types and how they would be made, when I selected the armor for my ships. So, I hope this has been very educational for you.
1. First off there will be no god modding from this point on. And varsaigen but since your race is clearly overpowered and the power it would take to destroy a whole planet is not possible you can't use any "planet crackers". Now please reframe from godmodding and remake your race.
2. Now I am going to accept races now just make sure you have things like the race's apperance, home planet, controlled land, name, life span, history(don't need like a full history just kinda recent history), and perferably any other you can think of.
but I haven't discussed why they are called planet crackers D: The reasonn is not that the bomb hits the surface and destroyes the planet (that WOULD be god-modding), but that in the mining process, it tends to be neccessary to drill a few holes into the Planet towards the core, to get the massive amounts of minerals stashed there. The Planet, if useless to me, and is finally sucked dry of it's minerals, has the holes finished being drilled to the core. With only 1 hole going to the core completly, the bomb is launched into the hole, allowing it to explode once it reaches the core. The internal shockwave would easily be enough to fracture the planet and cause it to drift apart (massive planets) or just blow apart (small planets)
I have carefully built the process of each of my technologies, and I have developed my empire over time. I have made sure to eliminate any god-modding I could think of. My ships' armour can be destroyed, it's just a bit hard to do so. The Planet Cracker has to have a clear shot to the target without getting blasted apart by enemy warships (the bomb explodes, revealing a pretty, blue shockwave simular to the one Jango Fett's mines had in Star Wars II: The Clone Wars). This is wher my drones come in. Used to intimidate the enemy by swarming them, they have ok weapons, no missiles or bombs (unless otherwise customised specifically for the job and registered into the HUB) and are fast. In swarms, they are devastating to enemy fleets when they gang up on any 1-4 warships, but alone... it's like swatting flies. Good at dodging your attacks, but not too dangerous. Often used as spies and scouts The Drone HUB can control about 1000 drones at once with accuracy. The drones shift their strategies if a bomb is released or BSC ships fire at the enemy, through their swarm. Without the Drone HUB able to control the 500+ (500 for the carriers, 300 for my flagship, and about 100-150 for destroyers and battleships), they tend to have the skill of well trained pilots. Drones can be programmed to do specific things by their corresponding ship.
I do not God-mod, I just have had about 3 monthes to develope my race. My empire is not all too complicated. It's mainly numbers and how quickly I can bring chaos to my enemy. D: I can see how you would think I'm godmodding, since you guys hardly have developed your races and empire, but it really isn't all too complicated for me. I have some mining ships that harvest the nebulas, 3 Planet Crackers that are spread out across the galaxy, mining uninhabited planets for large amounts of resources, and about 100 ships made solely for war. I only have 1 Juggernaught made for war, the other is a Gas Miner which harvests 10 times the amount that normal gas miners harvest (latest developement), a heavy defense at Shakuras with basically: about 5-ish gun platforms, a few Space Stations, half a million drones (500,000 drones) and Planetary defense cannons. As far as warships, I have about 10 destroyers constantly gaurding the planet, and about 20 cruisers and 3 carriers. That is my Planet's defense. The ships that tend to be outside of the defense array, exploring or checking up on some of my planets, tend to be cruisers and a few destroyers. I lately have about 3-5 cruisers around me, and 1-2 destroyers and every now and then, one of my Planet Crackers when I am in need of some real Punch But that's only cause I have to defend my planets fromothers who seem to stalk my ship But I do not god-mod >_>
Edit: I also forgot to mention the Jump Gate at Shakuras. I can travel just about anywhere by using the gate, but I have to take the path of systems home. This ends with a quick deployment, and a long return D:
Soo... off the topic of 'i am better than you all', I'll be joining the thread. Once I develop a text-schematic for a ship, some armor, a space-drive, and a basic civilization idea, I'll hand it over to you guys.
Technology: More of a terran style than the Chozo from Metroid
Empire: Black SUn Corporation. Rules several planets and focuses on the developement of new technology for the protection of it's free people.
Appearance: Bird-like race
Home Planet: unknown colonized Shakuras and made their empire there.
Life span: about 200 years.
History: A young Chozo had a dream of an empire. He enjoyed science yet was an outcast in society. Nonetheless, he worked towards his goal and soon founded Black Sun Corporation. The corporation grew, developing new technologies other science companies had not managed to achieve, due to staying by the book and working for federal funding, had soon become large. Finally, after many years, Black Sun Corporation became the leader in science and technology, and set their sights for space colonization. The project went on, and eventually, Black Sun was able to build colony ships, traveling across the universe after probes scanned several hundred planets, looking for an unclaimed planet rich with resources. Finally, when the trip became strenious, the Chozo's colony ship found such a planet. It was a massive planet, unclaimed and untapped. Settling there, the birth of a new colony soon appeared. With the discovery of this planet, factory companies and manufacturers flooded in to take advantage of the natural resources. Chaos began to take shape on the new world and Black Sun Corporation stepped in to set rules. Four years passed by and peace was soon established with Black Sun Corporation leading the planet with logic and power. the population remained free, unlike so many nations where others stepped in to set in order. Slowly, the planet grew, keeping a balance between nature and technology, avoiding becoming a fully metal planet like the old home was turning into. Black Sun sent scouts to neighboring worlds, and received intellegence of new and possible threats to their existance. Issuing many orders for manufacturers to fill, a grand navy was constructed, it's marines trained by Black Sun itself. The populance became fearful of a dictatorship, but it was soon clear. Black Sun remained peaceful and kept them with their freedoms intact. Attacks began on the planet, and soon a powerful defense was organized, ships deployed for high security guards, scouts, battleships, the military was made. Black SUn wiped out their attackers and soon owned much of the neighboring systems. another 50 years passed and order was achieved. Black Sun Corporation was in control of their large corner of the galaxy. Science and technology developement was unmatched, and the defense array was completed. The construction of the BSJ SHakuras had begun, soon to allow the Grand Admiral himself to travel the system, controling the fleet on the battlefront, leaving a commitee with only their opinions, in charge at Shakuras. The commitee didn't like the Grand Admiral and demanded more power, but the Admiral knew that if they were to receive the wanted power, that they would want more, and soon take over the corporation, leading the new planet to hell and chaos. For many many years this continued until the Comitee finally gave up, resigning their seats to new comitee members, admirers of the Grand Admiral, and remained professional. (approving or altering the designs to make them as efficient as possible. nothing about relations here ;P) Now, Black Sun Corporation rules with strength and power, outnumbering many who challenged them. Their exploration of their new galaxy had just begun...
Yes, the Chozo origional homeworld happens to either be corrupted in another galaxy, taken over by another race because they weakened themselves due to political and industry corruption, or the planet died Civil War can do bad things for the unprepared Well, that is all :3
Race Name: Lashia
Empire: A single planet, Lashion
Appearance: Mid-height, dark green skin color that has scales on the chest, shoulders, and upper parts of the arm. Usually thin, and have a cunning look in they're eyes.
Home Planet: Lashion
Life span: close to human.
The Lashia are a "young" race who quickly developed tech due to theyr peacefullness. There were never seperate countries or nations, and they vallue piece and prosperity. When they set off into space, they noticed the trade and profit opportunities there, and quickly made several trade routes. They also have a strange supstance, a liquid which is made by a certain plant, it can and store enormeus ammounts of energy (sort of like oil), and it can harden normal metals and give them extraordenary "abbilities". It is highly vallued, and the main reason for the Lashia becoming rich in relatively short time.
Do not be fooled, though. Using the supstance above (called LGE), they're warships are a force to be reckoned with! They rarely sell them, and made them using technology they "bought" from other Empires. That is why no pirate, nor empire dare raid they're trade caravans and ships (Other empires dont have any interest in raiding, anyway). They never used them before, though, (except for defending from pirates, but pirates dont attack them anymore, they learned they're lesson) so they have no experianced pilots at all.
Another reason why they have no colonies is slow multiplying they're numbers raise just enough to remain the way they are.
Appearance: Basically almost like humans, however, they have a bit of a tinted skin colour, have horns comming from their elbows, pointing away from their hands. also, every joint in the fingers has a little horn-like thing comming from it, pointing towards the tips of the fingers (You do not want to start a fist fight with them XD)
Habits: The Koldir prefer a form of honor, they prefer to see their enemy face to face before a fight, they will NOT under whatever circumstances use ranged weaponry (Usage of ranged weaponry will get you heavy punishment in their territory), they also like honesty and generally hate backstabbers. As for cultural habits, they like pretty things and architecture, knowledge is pretty important to them and loyalty to friends is also very apreciated.
Name: Koldir Empire
Leader: Daldim Norlai
Military technology: The Koldir empire specializes in melee weapons and speed, as such, all of their war ships have wings, most two, some four, these wings are directly connected to the engines, ensuring that there is no damage to the ship itself when it starts cutting into the enemy ship, the edges of the wings are covered with small holes, that shoot out plasma and form it in a edge like form, to increase the easiness of the cut through an enemy ship, furthermore, the defences of the ships are concentrated near the wings, energy shields for example, are only used near the wings, to absorb any explosion that might follow the attack, the wings are the strongest parts of the ship, the whole ship would be destroyed even before the wings would fall off.
the wings make the strength, the body the protection, as for the engines, they offcourse allow for speed and maneuverability, which they realy have, they can be fast enough to create a great cutting force at the edges of the wings, yet be maneuverable enough to evade missiles, bombs and plasma bullets (or however you can call them) offcourse, it's only the pilots that are the most important, as they have to be able to use all this speed and maneuverabillity, most ships in the fleet are small, fighter like, however, there are also massive battleships, designed to crush hostile ships with their massive wings, these battleships also oftenly carry hundreds of small fighter craft, though they are rare.
Civil technology: majority of the people has stopped working becouse of a massive project that replaces people with robots, this way, people can all get the same things, it began with food, which is now being produced in massive factories in masive amounts, enough to feed the entire population whenever they want to eat, further there are many factories that create all sorts of things, only a couple of jobs are left without automization, the people who do these jobs, have the privilage to get customly made things, specially according to their specifications, now people only do things for fun, all scientists do so.
Occupied area: They inhabit only 5 planets, 6 moons, 110 star bases, have about 500 mining bases and about 300 wormhole bases. majority of their planets and moons are planets with large deserts.
all of their colonies are founded around 3 stars, 2 of which, are turning around eachother.
History: The Koldir empire started when an empire had conquered the entire world, that was just after the Koldir had build their first flying machine, after that, it went bad for a while, the emperor of the early Koldir Empire was a greedy and selfish man, he wanted everything, but gave nothing in return, luckily for the people, he died from a disease, the Emperors who followed, were more thinking about the empire than about themselves, making the Koldir empire grow and grow, they developed space flight and build a colony on their moon, this colony soon got destroyed becouse of a meteorite that struck it, that stopped progress to other planets for a while, though many space stations were build, and also some starbases, which were mostly meant to protect anything from meteorites and astroids, a new colony was founded on the moon, and it this time, was a succes, so they moved on to the closest planet, and colonized that one too, they found a small, stable wormhole, large enough for a colony ship to pass through, first some scout ships went through, then a colony ship, which founded yet another colony, several other colonies were founded after that, also, after loads of research, they found out how the wormhole worked, and succesfully replicated one, though the maximum stabillity they could get out of it, was 70% for half an hour long, after that it collapsed, so they build a ship that was fully self sustainable, the ship was called a wormhole ship, as the ship was able to create a wormhole leading to the homeworld, though it couldn't travel through it itself, so this ship moves forever, searching for interresting places to go, and allowing for construction of more permanent wormhole bases, this ship was constantly re-fitted on the go, for example, when they met an alien species, and noticed they were hostile and used ranged attacks, the ship was quickly repaired and refitted with fighter bays and fighters, at current times, they have found many races, none of which value close ranged weaponrly like the Koldir do, and so, the Koldir see just about every civilization as cowards, though they do have good relations with many of them.
lol bases inside wormholes? I don't really see the point. What if a fleet goes through that worm hole? They may make a detour and attack the base from a distance, nuking it and letting no one escape. D:
I like it Kamir except for the part about wormholes. I see wormholes as temporary short lived transportation devices so it would be impossible to build a base at a wormhole since the wormhole would disappear soon and the base would just be sitting there. And if you had one inside it the base would be utterly obliterated.
All are approved except Tahril's seems a bit under developed.
>.< Why do people read it wrong or understand it wrong always! I didn't mean bases inside wormholes, I meant wormhole relay stations, they work the same as the ship, and work as points where the main wormhole station in the home station can link to, in other words, we have just one natural wormhole connecting the two planetary systems, which is the only permanent, the rest are all just temporary, that way, the chance of an invasion is decreased, but also transport in general is a bit slower, though still faster than just going.
yep. and the same goes for subspace Except that you can access the tunnels when you activate the subspace drive, and as long as someone does not send a large ship through and self-destruct it in the endpoints, the tunnel should remain intact and not kill everyone inside it Other than that, when your not in it, you can go over the exact spot it open for as long as you want
I thought they were all neighbors 100 systems away is a long distance. Shakuras probably isn't nearly as far as 100 systems! O_O um... does that mean your going to send enemy ships onto the surface of Shakuras? Landing on top of my cities and the government itself? Isn't that kinda.... unfair? I'd have no time to react before you teleported nukes through D:
and if it speeds up particles, the G's will murder the crew, and whatever is in the way will be destroyed along with the object. Or, if your sending a cruiser, you'll blow a hole in a Class 7 planet D: (large planet)
yes, but that doesn't mean he can't send bombs through or kamikazi/bombers to attack my planet while most of the defences are orbital... The only planetary defenses other than marines and a few hundred security drones, would be the massive defense guns used to blast away enemies above the planet. They can't aim towards the cities D: They are much to powerful to be able to aim at the limitless number of attacks. If I were to use that gateway, I'd be able to shove a Planet Cracker's bomb through and destroy the other side :/
Hey, who said I'm aggressive? And var, there is no way you're getting that gate tech from me. Well, maybe...
And on the thing about the particles, it's totally safe for my people. In fact, the first thing successfully sent was a grasshopper.
