    ConceptartCohesion #001: 8th Day >>> IDotW - Genetic Soldier Transport


    ConceptartCohesion #002: 8th Day

    Storyline:


    The year 2446 CE.

    Mankind and its technology have advanced at an exponential rate, however trivial political, religious and social demands have caused the splintering of former superpowers into smaller nation states, pitting themselves against each in a number of minor conflicts.

    Since 2395 a minimum of 27 conflicts, hostile incursions and border disputes have been raging in various confined areas across the planets surface, sparking a new global economy.
    Covenants of major corporations have banded together in various factions and are now the true international players, feeding the ever increasing demand of new weapons technology.
    The change in style of warfare has rendered weapons of mass destruction virtually useless increasing an appetite for more unconventional weapon systems, specifically the VidaNova Corporations newest developments in the field of creating new species of animals bred for specific purposes.

    The idea behind this new move is too harness the animals natural intelligence, sensory abilities, and ability to traverse difficult terrain. They are currently working on models for civilian implementation, ranging from beasts of burden for remote areas to leisure models as pets. However there have been worrying reports of certain products escaping from captivity, and having unexpected effects on the flora and fauna they interact with, conspiracy theorists place blame on a huge range of subjects, ranging from the Cytarabinoside used in manipulating metabolic pathways in the animals, to mother earth resting control back from humanity to satan himself.
    Some minor political and religious groups are already rallying, trying to bring this series of unnerving events to the public eye, wild rumors and conspiracy theories are already calling this the 8th day of creation.

    Topic:
    Genetic Soldier Transport


    Description:
    Genetic Soldier Transport - The Genetic Soldiers built by the Mother Machine are transported by AI-Controlled transports. The Transport carrys up to 24 soldiers and speeds up to 60mph. The transport has no proper defenses. The Ai has been programed to say as close to the ground to avoid being seen by enemies.

    The Transports are built in mass, and the blueprints are often improved overtime by FATHER Machine.

    Deadline:
    Wednesday, 15th March 2006

    did you say "Father Machine"? This is all just too great. Sketching my transport now. I think the hardest part will be coming up with something really original.

    Oh yeah I know it is in fact Soldier Transport, I was just noting that he mentioned "Father Machine". I am guessing that might come up as another topic in the near future, but I know it won't reflect in this week's topic, except that the transports are mass produced.

    I'm going to try and deviate away from my love of the fleshy beings and venture forth into this land of cold hard edges and unforgiving alloys. It'll be a stretch doing both but I've done so few vehicles and robots that its ridiculous, gotta expand my horizons. Good luck all, this one seems fairly straight forward.

    I am PUMPED! the reason I didn't post one for the 'mother machine' was due to it turning into an environment rather than one machine... an environment that rapidly fell apart due to my lack of proficiency... regardless, I am VERY excited to see what you guys do with the tried and true "drop ship" design... its something thatís been done to death, but I have faith in you guys!

    hey, Legato: really look forward to yours!
    Actually I am not sure if I will participate this time...
    If I find time and the right mood I will give it a try though :-)
    Haha, JakkaS: trying to get around the hard-edged industrial design look, huh?
    just kidding!
    Well, you're the COW master!

    I think I'll leave this here for kicks, It went a pretty good ways to the final. Good enough? Well I guess that's the question.

    I'm thinking identical sections linked together as a flying train, each section capable of flying on it's own with rotatable engines alowing them to make fast and complicated turns.

    Since it's AI controlled it doesn't have to have a front window, but perhaps the sensonsors need to "see" what's in front.

    I kind of invision some smal resemblence to a chinese dragon, when it's done.

    Just thinking outloud mosltly.

    Yeah I am still deciding about any windows too, you can't make it out yet but if you can see the three long sections that make up the front face, the middle one is a window and the two on either side are armor-plated metal. I was not really going after a tank look so much, and I am thinking that it will hover. The description says "close to the ground", so I get the idea it has the ability to fly higher but doesn't "to avoid being seen by enemies". But that's just my take on it, I guess.

    I'm working on a flying wing design. I've got it mostly figured out with my sketches. Hopefully a WIP soon.

    wip - troops lie incubated until deployment - each pod is replaceable, added to the transport at the mother machine, allowing for different types of troop to be deployed using the same platform

    Artiphats, I like it thus far. It reminds me of a Space Marine Battle Barge, from Warhammer 40k. Not really sure if the spikes add anything, Id lose them or put a whole crap load of them on there, but the three by themselves arent working.

    here is my WIP - just need to add some value and a scale indicator and it should be done!

    I am still stuggling with what kind of paint job to give it.... distressed metal vs. mud covered camo???

    setmonkey - looking pretty cool, i like the form..it's kind of crab like!

    artiphats - can wait to see yours more refined!

    rob-ot, that's great! I was also thinking of how to paint mine when the outline is done, I think I am gonna go with a real subtle camo, nothing flashy though. Maybe a stripe or two at most. Now that I see yours I KNOW I have to kick ass just to keep up! Should have my outline up this weekend.

    ConceptartCohesion #001: 8th Day >>> IDotW - Genetic Soldier Transport

    updateed image:
    i reduced the res a little so it could be viewed a little easier. also the windows were bothering me i think they were to large in the original post and were throwing off my sense of scale!
