EO Contest: Stahlvogel by IgnusDei EO Contest: Stahlvogel by IgnusDei
My entry into the Eve Online Create A Starship Contest, the Stahlvogel. The first Caldari Battleship of its kind: it sports a spinal mounted railgun. Done in about 10 hours over a period of two days.

So symmetrical!!! So awesome!! I can just imagine it coming out of slip space and firing a giant freaking laser. That would be so freaking boss.

Now dude these is great. What i think you should do is make it in other sizes. Cruisers, Destroyers etc. Now just to be clear, if you make the Frigates make them at a cheap prize, but strong so pilots will want to try it out and get the next version. I think these is a really great design just don't ruin it with the prize.

This kind of ship would make me want to play Caldari, I get put off by ships that arent symmetrical so I didn't consider being Caldari at all.

Question Isn't Eve online that game where you fly around in a ship and never see your avatar? and leveling up well thats done offline.

Thats Eve online right?

At the moment that is a correct, though quite lacking, description. Starting Incarna (planned first update next year, probably around July) there will be full body, controllable avatars that look quite promising.

(i have always been bad with the scale of objects)

4 turret slots, probably mounted on the dark areas on the engines for max coverage. but it's basically a siege weapon or a piece of artillery.

True story. Though CCP is holding another contest where we actually get to fucking vote on it, so if they mean "vote on the rest of the entries" then I'm including this one..

This would definitely have to come with its own unique module (since there are a multitude of railguns belonging to an entire market group). I really like this design.

I think this is one of the ships i like the most in the contest. I also made mine of 1000 mts.

A railgun is a more elegant an economic solution for strategic warfare, with all those energy based weapons. I asume it has a repeting cicle before the cooldown?.

nice. FYI, reactors don't need to recharge: they can be overtaxed or overheat or even run out of fuel, but they don't work like batteries.

What you have there isn't a railgun. A railgun couldn't be structured that way. Unless those are the magnets and the rails are too small to be visible. Or it uses a plasma projectile of some sort, in which case it's missing the magnets (and has an annoying tendency to slag the constriction at the end of the rails). It could however be some other form of Gauss gun. Nitpicky but it's the kind of thing I think about.

To be a railgun the projectile must make electrical contact (and one that passes some serious current so direct mechanical contact is a must) with both rails as it moves and needs to be exposed the a magnetic field 90 degrees to both the direction of the current and the direction the projectile travels.

what exactly are you looking at? the gun would be in inside the lower hull, not in that gap.

Then it works. Does probably rattle teeth on the bridge every time you fire it though ship being built like a giant tuning fork and all, that just makes for interesting detail.
