Thor Defense Platform MK1 by eRe4s3r Thor Defense Platform MK1 by eRe4s3r
Something else from me..

Full View and a PROPER PICTURE VIEWER ;p Recommended
The Resolution is 1920x1080, and you will miss out on details if you only skim the preview thumb.. (ok, the modelling issnt aimed at providing endless details though ,p)

Technically i can and could extend the scene to include more platform(s) with gangways sprawling out the screen, but seriously, i have to put a stop to my hobby modellings somewhere ,p

Theres some Weapon Systems In Place which are based on reality (The Gattling Towers excluded) and are modelled more or less close to their real life counter parts (except of course, you don't find THAT many detail pictures of stuff like, how does the swing arm for the ram launcher *actually* look :p

4x Exocet Launchers
1x RIM 116 - Ram Launcher
2x IRIS-T SL AA/AS/AG Launchers
4x 127/54 Oto Melara Naval Gun (These things are really that huge.. 10m from front (gun barrel) to back)
50x VLS (Vertical Launch System) Tubes

MK2 is still undecided, but its possible to extend this a bit more..

But theres a catch, i need new geometry or deas, the picture can move quite a bit upward and theres alot of room behind the base that could be covered (mainly with exocets pointing in the other 3 directions ,p)

The only way to access the interior is via the elevator DOWNWARDS (not upwards, where it rests) Mainly past a hatch/like system to prevent water from flowing in

The Gun Turrets are Submergeable, as i hope i displayed obvious enough ,p


I love DA's way to sort gallerys with "Predominant Subjects"

I have no idea what that means in regard to a SCI-FI SEABORNE - DEFENSE PLATFORM with MIXED realistic and semi-futuristic (next 5 years) Weaponry, theres no PREDOMINANT subject here, unless thats for sea (but this is definitly not a seascape, nor is it an OBJECT (bit too large for that ,p)

So my best guess is.. Scenes Other ;p


Some Questions i expect

Q: Why is the Resolution so batsh*t crazy huge
A: Cel Rendering is based on a 1 pixel line tracer, more pixels, sharper lines, easy ,p

Q: Why not simply scale the res back after rendering
A: Makes the small text too small, sorry ,p

Q: The text sucks (a bit)
A: Yes it does, but then again, you ever heard of the military paying for a stylist? ;P

Q: There is no gattling rails on the left gun emplacement
A: Intentional, why? Well maybe i will model that side and decide why, until then, its intentional ;P

Q: Why so much text
A: Because more text = more views? Hah i wish..

Anyway, comments welcome


Q: The water is ugly!?!?
A: Yes, it is !?!?!

i have a few suggestions if you dont mind, adding a dock to platform access to a main door near the docks, this  should be a flat access to allow the easy movement of heavy equipment on and off base, using either fork lifts of pallet jacks, and you seem to have a lack of radar and/or comm-satt antenna for the long range targeting systems. also some form of control tower for the helipad might be helpful, possibly placed between the guns in that 'empty' spot between the larger gun turrets. this would allow for some real eyes on target on approaching ships and planes. other than that i think its a great rpg design.
