Post A bit of fan art
hi hi

I got to thinking today about possible Loroi civilian craft, and then as I was looking through the various warship silhouettes, I saw the Zephyr freighter. It's got a rather blocky silhouette, and since I had the day off, I took a stab at sketching it out. (I have no idea what kind of cargo containers the Loroi actually use, so I just used something basic.)

Very nice. AFAIK, the silhouette of the freighter is very similar to freighter ships in Master of Orion 2. Somehow, I always thought the cargo went into the central part of the ships and the arms were engines for landing/taking off planets :lol:

I'm not sure how the cargo ships are supposed to work, but at least in the Outsider universe I think, large ships don't usually land on planets. This was just me messing around and trying to come up with a look for something that had a challenging silhouette.

Honestly, having a quick resupply method via standard sized shipping containers is a very good idea. Just pull the old one out slam a new one in. You are done in a few minutes as opposed to hours, days, or even weeks. Each Supply crate is labeled for the ship class, then done.

Yes, and your solution is very nice. But I also like the little shuttles, they vaguely remind me of the Valkyrie from Avatar (in the sense that the hull "hangs" under the delta wing).
