Fenris remake. by markusglanzer Fenris remake. by markusglanzer
A Ship for the Drifting-Souls 3D client, I'm working on in my spare time.
It clearly is a WIP, the Textures are just Placeholders, so there will be a lot of change.

I rebuilt the Fenris/Leviathan Model, using a reference Model by Lc4Hunter at the egosoft-froums, added some detail, optimized geometry.

I always thought that the Fenris model, with its squat design and easy to kill nature, looked like a toy, but this I like.

I loved it from the start - it just tells so much by simply being there.

For example - in FS1 the Fenris-types were on their last legs (even before the Terran/Vasudan war), then the shivans happened. The Fenris is also quite an exotic design if you compare it with any terran capital ship you see in-universe. Everything else is rectangular, gray, ultra-functional and boxy except the Fenris, just like it is the only terran ship that was carefully designed, and not rush-built to fill the ranks. In FS2 (and after) I like to imagine that they keep the Fenris-type around, because it's reminiscent to a better, pre-war time, just like in "they don't build 'em like that anymore". Given that the Terrans lost Earth (along with Capella) in the End of FS1, they are now in a desolate refugee-state, pretty much like the People in BSG (same is true for the Vasudans tho), except that no one is able to 'search for Earth' since the last Jumpnode leading there is dead. (and yes, I'm ignoring the mod-expanded Universe on purpose)

Additionally, a lot of things about the 'classic' Fenris look reminded me on Trek's Constitution-type, with it having all the right proportions, looking good from every angle, and having a very distinctive shape - so it's also part of my ongoing quest to find the 'holy grail' of spacecraft design. I will also have to redo this one. (have I mentioned that both ships have the same texture, and only the lighting was changed?)

Anyway - thank you so much for that comment, I really appreciate it.

Cool, do you have much interest in FreeSpace?

Actually a lot. That's why I'm making a 3D-Client for a Freespace-themed Browsergame.

Also it's a pretty neat, somewhat 'hardish' setting - exactly my cup of tea. Yeah, maybe I just never got attached to Wing Commander :D
