I don't do art in general, or 3D modeling. I was inspired by the Experimental TIEs and the Uglies to do the M-TIE.

shouldn't the TIE Bomber look more like {-00-} ? After all, it doesn't have straight wings like the TIE Fighter does.

And don't forget Vader's TIE either: {-0-}

Somehow, I doubt that ASCII-Fighters will pan out as well as TIEs or X-Wings. Laughing

It could be worse, the Empire could suddenly start relying on Preybird-class fighters of all things!

Oh wait...

He gestured out the viewport at the Preybirds, disappearing now beneath the edge of the Chimaera's hull as they headed for the Star Destroyer's hangar. "Look at them, Captain. SoroSuub Preybirds. We're reduced to SoroSuub Preybirds."


Granted, that's Legends continuity, but still.

Zarn, I've been a little preoccupied with Darth Real Life here recently, but I'd appreciate it if you would repost your original stat.

Sounds cool. I like the ability to quickly cook up a new TIE Fighter. Fits with Imperial Standardized parts doctrine.

Okay, so, looking over this, I have a couple suggestions, organizationally speaking. First, I suggest breaking down the different modules into sub-types, especially the command modules. Keep like grouped with like, especially on the core modules. Secondly, I'm having difficulty picturing how to use this in a game. It reads more like a Build-Your-Own-TIE-Fighter template, or as Seinar's in-house brochure as to how to buy the right packages for the starship you want.

I may be a little biased, having come up with my own modular variants for both the Bomber and the Interceptor, so this may not be something I'll be hugely interested in, but let me know if you'd like my input.

I agree about combining this with automated manufacturing like World Devastators. IMO, it makes more sense to design a modular cockpit into an existing starfighters, than it does to design a starfighters like the TIE/D specifically for the purpose.

In the past, I've considered this a good place for a Terminator crossover, building droid bodies designed to interface with existing equipment, like putting a skeletal humanoid droid frame inside a suit of stormtrooper armor.

And a World Devastator droid brain makes for a good Skynet substitute.

Terminator Crossover sounds fun.
