Sith fighter (variable-geometry!)

32.4k Wakescar  5.8 years ago

This is the variable-geometry Sith Starfighter from the Star Wars RPG video game, Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR), and the counterpart to my Ebon Hawk v3.
Features:
• Variable-geometry wings - VTOL slider
• After-burners - AG:1
• Bridge bashing guns
• Fully functioning cockpit by Rohan,
thanks buddy!

The wings start in supersonic/storage position, and sweep to strike position with the VTOL slider. Similar to an X-Wing.

Move quickly between wing positions. Anything in between will bring the craft into a fatal stall.
Slow the craft to ~800mph to return to supersonic position for the same reason.

Supersonic position allows greater stability, while strike position allows greater agility for combat.

    @Dantheman108 Thanks for the heads-up dude! It seems like one of the updates has inverted the two port side (left) wing rotators. They are a lighter color than the craft and partially exposed. Swap the direction in the settings and you should be all set. You can actuate the wings on the ground to check your work.

    @SupremeDorian You absolutely should! I usually take a lot of time with my designs and this one came together faster than most for me.

    @Wakescar I might try to make one myself at some point. I'm not very good at this game but it's not an overly complex shape so it might not be too difficult.

    @SupremeDorian Thanks man! Yeah KOTOR likely predates most of the builders here. I’m hoping to post a new sith fighter when I get back from the outer rim.
    Good to see another keeper of the peace patrolling the core systems my friend. Maybe I’ll make my way over to SR2 sometime.

    I wasn't aware there was even a Sith fighter on this site until I actually looked for one. I know this is 4 years old but it still holds up!

    Can't get the Geometry to work. Keeps stalling, and I am sliding it up fast.

    @Aerobako I've been brainstorming a similar idea, minus the dune buggy explorer. That's a great idea. I'll have to try it out when the update comes to iOS

    @joeysellers No worries. I was wondering about that myself. I appreciate you considering another one of my builds :)

    @Wakescar Try to make a exploration vehicle.
    (A cargo starship that can drop off a driveable dune buggy.)

    @Wakescar Well, I spoke too soon. We had to cut this one from the trailer because of potential legal issues, but I'm replacing its footage from one of your other designs. But this time, I ain't gonna tell ya which one I'm using!

    Here is the dogfight AI optimized model. Pit it against the Ebon Hawk AI model or take it down yourself with its scale counterpart the Ebon Hawk v3 for a classic Star Wars space battle!
