UFO Design Thread
« on: March 28, 2006, 03:10:31 am »
With all the talk about creatures going on, I feel it's time we discussed something else. Describe and/or show what you plan on making your UFO look like in the game.

I'm thinking of building something similar to Unicron from Transformers in planet mode.

Or the Stardrifter from Noctis (a very cool freeware space exploration "simulator").

Well here is my Naucean's UFO design. A sphere, just like all their other craft and buldings. Note these 2 pictures have been posted for awhile.

A giant (metal) leaf with a cockpit in the middle, designed to look like it floats through space...  :)

Or if I'm in a different mood, I'll make it a wolf robo (think Zoids, but with propeller rockets around it)  8)

Or... I could change something copyright infringing from Kirby, and make a warp star ship, then change it just enough to evade copyrights!  :P

I just want a pig ufo. It has nothing to do with my creature but I like the idea of creatures running away from a giant pig

There is a method to my madness. That method is in and of itself quite mad, but it is method nonetheless.

Hmmm...Let's see...Ah, here we are. I think I'm gonna go with a real classic look. Y'know...The 50's n' stuff!

You should make a ufo that looks like a silverfish, those things are weird.

Giant bug-shaped UFOs... That'd be strange. But, strange is good.

Or you could try to make your ufo look like Lexx. Supposed to be like a giant dragonfly, it's organic, and it looks quite a bit like..erm, something else:

I don't want to create a flying disc. What will mine look like? I don't know, but assuming we can make something other than cliche UFOs, it won't look like a UFO.

OMG, a fellow Space Quest fan!

Truth be told, there's some cool ships in the SQ series that would make good Spore UFO's; would love to try and recreate the Aluminium Mallard as well :D

guys it would be nice to be able to make these but i think all we can make is a cliche ufo, the editors for buildings and stuff are just for adding tools on the side or removing tools to mke it look cooler, i really dont think these are possible.
