Empire Specific Light Transport Vehicles (Deliverers)

Before we start, forgive my poor drawing skills...

What I am going to introduce are vehicles that were created with Deliverer in mind.

Groveler/Creeper (VS-specific)

Keeping in mind the design cues of Thresher and Scythe, I figured out a UFO-like vehicle.

Deliverer (NC-specific)

With new lore coming into play, I was thinking what can ES deliverer be for NC. After some though I decided that it should be a repurposed mining truck, so having some visions of Tiberian Sun Harverster, I drew this. Besides the look of it definitely gives the feel of a "tank", which, according to the ES³ formula, it is supposed to be.

Raider (TR Specific)

I was trying to figure out a design for TR, and couldn't think of any. Until it hit me - the original Raider actually fits perfectly - just smooth all the sharp edges and you get the exact design model, PS2 gives to TR.

Suggested innovations/Trivia. LTVs:
  1. Have very high speed.
  2. Can move on water, VS one can strafe on it, though.
  3. Have a customizable ATV Cargo Slot.
  4. Can be equipped with flamethrower.
  5. (except for Raider) have 2 gunner and 2 passenger slots.
  6. Can be transformed into ES artillery, sacrificing all the gunner/passenger seats.*
  7. Are deployables and have some deployable ability.
  8. Can be equipped with AV, AI, and AA weaponry.
  9. Have a customisation allowing to carry maxes.**

*Suggested artillery is plasma howitzer (VS), Tomahawk-like missile launcher (NC), long-range multiple rocket launcher (TR). Obviously I suggest having a very fair resource price for each shot to prevent spam.
**I imagine removing all but 1 gun for the LTVs as a tradeoff for the ability.

Re: Empire Specific Light Transport Vehicles (Deliverers)

suspect you can get pretty much this by certing the Sunderer and putting certain attachments on it to get a fast infantrytransport option. A for effort tho ^^

Re: Empire Specific Light Transport Vehicles (Deliverers)

While I would like to eventually see light transports, and it would be nice to see ES versions, I don't quite think you hit the mark here.

From the sketch, the NC vehicle looks pretty similar to the sunderer, and the split tread set-up looks fairly awkward. If these are supposed to be high-speed vehicles that are lighter than the Sundy, they should be 4 wheeled (or hovering, of course).

I think that the vehicles should maybe have 1 gunner, with a gun more powerful than available to Sunderers, and 3 or 4 passengers. I could see the LTVs having a more offensive role than the Sunderers, trading armor and capacity for speed and firepower. Like a Sunderer met a lightning, and did terrible things...

I don't know if it should carry maxes though, I think that is an ability best left to the Sunderer.

First off, great ideas!

Secondly, how the HELL do you SUCK (comparitively) at profile but EXCEL at DYNAMIC angles?! It should be backwards, Dynamic (the diagonal with sides and top) should be a much harder angle to do than side and front or back. Weird art skills man.
