    Wip Carsus&Cathus: Two Worlds War

    I got to thinking (aka, I was bored, needed something to do) one night, and I suddenly had an idea for a map, which 10 minutes later I had a rough-sketch of on a piece of paper. So I dedicated yesterday and today to making the main graphix for it, and I hope you like them, but heres a quick summary of why they are at war:


    The Carsians are a technologocally advanced species, and their planet is a tropic paradise, but their almost constant rains have had them working on creating a device to control the weather. The Cathians live underground, where it is also basically a paradise (beautiful underground waterfalls, gems along the walls, etc) but wish for a better place to live, as their underground tunnels (thousands-millions of years old) have started to collapse at different areas, and so many of them have started to fear for their lives, and want a new place to live. The Cathians prize possesions are a rare type of rainbow-colored jewel (gem, diamond, idk what exactly its called), called the Kytonian Jewel (pronounced like Kitoneun) that can be used as an everlasting powersource, and also has some other attributes (healing powers, it glows , uh... weather control (with the right devices) and many other things), making them very prized possessions to the Cathians. The Carsians discovered that they could control their weather if they had some Kytonians, and decided to take all of them from the Cathians and use the Cathians as slave labor to mine for more. At the same time, the Cathians decided that the Carsians homeworld of Carsus would be a suitable place to live. An ensuing war broke out in a couple of months, but it is unsure of who fired the first shot (although their is some rumor that an outside source may have tried to get this war started.).

    Also, although the Carsians are more technologically advanced, the Cathians are slightly technologically advanced, and what they dont have in advanced weapons, they make up for in numbers.


    So yea thats a kinda backstory for why these to worlds are at war. Hope its not to confusing, as this is the first time I have ever made a backstory to one of my maps. I guess Ill just go ahead and put the image up now

    Oh and things to do:

    1) Add a space fleet
    2) Add the title
    3) Remember what else there was I was gonna do.....


    And without further delay (I hope.. ) Carsus (left) and Cathus (right):

    thanks


    now of course, i have to make the space fleets, for which ill have to bring out blender and figure out how to use it....


    so far I only know how to select sides, vertices, edges, and the entire box, and occasionally mess up the look of the box they give you, making it look like a box with a spike stuck through it....

    That back story sounds very familiar... Yup, found it. Season 3 of Lexx, Fire and Water. Two planets at war with each other. Not exactly the same, but very close.

    Great minds think alike. There are several differences between the ideas obviously. I just wanted to toss it out there as possibly more inspiration and since it happens to be a scifi show as well, it works really well.

    Wip

    Lol that show sounds like something I might want to watch sometime


    Oh well, after working very hard in Blender, I have gotten as far as making circles, squares, and adjusting lines Now I have to figure out how to make an actual ship, texture it, get it into GIMP, and make more, then make more types of ships. Oh well, at this rate Ill have a good fleet by the end of the century

    If anybody knows of any tutorials for making spaceships in Blender, it would be greatly appreciated (or a free program thats purpose is making/modeling spaceships)


    Alas, I have gotten 2 things done so far basically, taking less that 10 minutes to do both of them:


    Added a lens flare
    Put in a title

    wow, amazingly, i was able to speed up my creation of spaceships, and I now have the mother ships of both fleets more-or-less modeled, and i just need to texture them


    heres a picture of what the cathus mothership is looking like right now, and afterwards is a picture of a carsus ship
