To all Battletech Consultants I am Looking for...
« on: May 01, 2007, 10:15:12 PM »
For a Orbital Cannon that the Inner Sphere uses preferably with a couple of angles and what you would think would be good concept art because i wanna use a generic cannon that can be deployed in a couple of maps.

Would Star Wars art be useable? There's several orbital cannons in the strategy games of that series.

Hopefully wolf stop by and drops some info on this. If not i'm sure we can use star wars artwork as a basis.

This isn't BattleTech canon.  It's actually art someone did for OGame but good luck finding anything other than an obscure pencil sketch of what you're looking for.  I didn't find anything remotely useful on FanPro's CBT site in their artwork section.

Damn that artwork is fantastic of the battletech cannon!!

The hypervelocity gun is interesting too...wookiepedia lawlz, but the cool thing about it is it LOOKS like it belongs on the ground in a compound.

If you want a generic ground gun that beachead cannon thing in the Mw5 concept art thread is pretty badass.

Keys, I'm already working on an orbital ground cannon, since it will be the main objective in a map I'm currently working on. It'll be a massive defense cannon that needs to be destroyed in order to i.e. get a dropship on the ground. I haven't said anything about it yet, since I wanted to post my map layout together with a decription of the map and screens of the finished cannon model when it's done. Now I had to mention it so we don't work aside each other on the same thing ending up with 2 different results. If you want to, you can use my cannon when it's done. I don't have concept pics, but you can see what it will look like in this intro starting at 2:18min:

I really like the look of that massive cannon, but if you guys have a nice Battletech concept for such a cannon and insist on using that, let me know and I'll instantly stop the work on my model.

Whoa that thing is HUGE! I like the map concept definetly and the model would be fairly cool espescially if we give it a little more realistic of a look. Definetly a great concept!

Familiar to most I guess, nonetheless: This one is from Quake4:

I had to register simply because I saw this post and couldn't believe no one referenced these.  :D

How about the orbital guns from MechCommander? I went into the editor and got a screenshot for you to use if needed. Yeah, they're 2D sprites, not the greatest to use as reference images, but they're orbital guns, and they're from BattleTech. Figured the picture might be useful.  ;)

There's something called MODL (Mobile Orbital Defense Laser) which can be seen
here on page 19 http://download.microsoft.com/download/b/1/8/b180af00-6eae-490e-88d6-71ec4f4af01a/MechWarriorBlackKnight_Manual_EN.pdf

Looks pretty much like a space shuttle carrier equipped with a very! large laser.
A mobile battle fortress could be nice adaption ^^
