Still in Business - Just a bit Slower by ChroniclesofMan
Still in Business - Just a bit Slower
You'll forgive the delay in work as of late. I just wanted to reassure my friends and fans that I am still working hard. Just fine tuning my artwork and style for CoM 3.0.

Thanks for the patience.

Construction is underway.

Veridian Destroyer by HandofManos
What is there to say: This is a fabulous design. I could see a wonderful square off between a Veridian Destroyer squadron and an Alliance Renown-Class cruiser coming down to a brutal battle of shattered hulks.

The design is brilliant. A fantastic incorporation of the newer elements in COM 3.0.

The ship looks tough and fast.

The vision of the vertical design is perfectly executed with a unique and fun shape that still looks all the bit a warship and a piece of the CoM universe. Great work as always.

I am especially found of the stripy color scheme. The predominant dark is a great look for the ship. I expect other nations will want to purchase her for use in their fleet!
So its been a while since I posted anything here. Mostly that has been due to my job. The other part of it was that I was nearing completion on the Chronicles of Man 3.0 Website. After spending lots of time looking for a company to build the site last year, I found one who - despite the ambitiousness of the project - took it on full force. With the site 80% done, I was fairly exited. The community elements had been implemented, a majority of the wiki elements had been implemented, and even the user functionality I wanted was almost completely there. The last element was a my inventory page designed to collect a user's posts into a single section (a supplement to the my nations, my corporations, and my organizations) pages. This section was fairly coding heavy as I understood it as each custom post type which requested required coding. However, it was the last piece other than polishing.  

However, in January the company I was using restructured and no longer provides services to support finishing the site. Instead of demanding them commit to the contract and loose support, I took rights to the site instead and now have the fully constructed site for finalizing. It is built in the wordpress environment with plug-ins like buddy press used to handle the user account and social aspect. However, I am not familiar with wordpress enough to finish the site. That is where I need the help.

Does anyone know any good wordpress developers out there who are familiar with buddy press, coding for wordpress, and could finish the site to help CoM 3.0 take off as I had hoped. Please message me if you know!

Thanks.

So I am at a crossroads and I need your help to decide.  Right now I am not certain which direction I want to go with CoM.  Part of me wants to make it more of a Space Opera - Star Wars and the old Battlestar Galactica for the modern age.  Another part of me wants to go the direction of harder scifi.  Redesign the capital ships with large rotating sections, more modular and "stacked" designs that invoke ideas from 2001 A Space Odyssey and 2010 its subsequent sequel along with other great hard scifi series.  

I am not certain, and in this case I want to leave it more to you all to decide as CoM is as much yours as it is mine.  Any thoughts?

Hey, where'd your modular frigate go? It had such nice B5/HALO esthetics!

I see the current paradigm is winning... :) As I said elsewhere, I think the current direction is great. Sure, part of me would want 'Futuristic Cool', but then again you have to throw any detailed rational incorporation of the technology into the broader universe out the airlock if you do that, which would probably only stunt a potentially great area of development for CoM. Besides, eye-candy ships are a dime a dozen out there, and you can always do a few for the heck of it, outside of CoM, if you feel like it (not that I'm assuming you would; though if I had the skills to draw like this... :) ).

So, my question is whether the CoM ships have any method of close defense beyond the counter-missiles? I understand that the main armament of the ship in CoM universe are missiles traveling at a speed of 0.X c or mass drivers/las cannons  depending on nation doctrine and armor>shields>counter-missiles seve as ships defence , but what about light craft or boarding shuttles? Not equiping ship with weapons capable of engaging such targets simply because lighter fleet vessels can is not wise idea (same reason why modern naval vessels still have HMG mounts) and shooting them down with CM-s is...well like trying to kill a fly with a cannon.
P.S. Sorry for prying but i'm simply curious.

Oh there are many types of defensive weapon types.  There are rapid fire rail guns, laser batteries (turrets and arrays), and even plasma flak and burst fire weapons for more "wide area" point defense against smaller vessels.  In addition, CoM 3.0 will see the introduction of the importance of small craft and anti-small craft weaponry.

Hope that helps.

I know that new CoM release date is TBD but can you give us some approximation?
