    NEWS FLASH

    IFN advises there are rumours that Smuggler class Unlimited armour has been seen near Celeste Harbour. Calypsian ex-patriots have advised that their Gremlin class Unlimited armour will not last much longer, unsuited for the conditions on Arkadia. They are making do with what Gremlin they have left and the Musca Limited armour supplies they have managed to collect.

    The situation is desperate and despite these rumours, no Arkadian/Calypsian ex-pat has seen the Smuggler Unlimited armour. In these desperate times the Arkadian Armour Engineering Group (AAEG) are trying to decode blueprints of the rare Smuggler class armour. Details are sketchy, but seems this class of armour is somewhere between Calypsian Gremlin and Tiger type armour. They know it is black in colour with typical Smuggler style red stripes on an armour chasis of Arkadian design. Some say, it might look like a black/red stripe version of Pegasus armour.

    To aid the designers and engineers create the Smuggler class Unlimited armour the IFN armour division is offering 350Ped to graphically skilled Arkadians who can present an impression of what the Smuggler class Unlimited armour might look like on an Arkadian armour chasis. The successful image will be forwarded to the Arkadian Armour Engineering Design Team.

    Also, it is important to assess what the Arkadian community thinks about Smuggler class Unlimited armour. Please post your support in this thread for the Smuggler class unlimited armour to be crafted by our engineers or discovered in loot.

    Get to work Arkadians

    General Longstaff
    Supremacy Reign, Arkadian Chapter

    DEADLINE: 1st February 2012

    NB: This is not an official Planet Arkadia endorsed competition, nor does it represent the views or opinions of the Planet Arkadia group. The final design will be judged by the Arkadian community and I will present the design to the development team for their consideration. The 350Ped prize will be funded by myself alone.

    If you want us to create a new texture for existing armor 3D model, the best way would be to give us a CE2 Sandbox file with all armor parts in it, so we could create ready to use textures for them.

    Or do you want us to create 3D models for armor parts as well?

    The final Smuggler should look way better than this!

    I don't think the Arkadian Design team will give out such sensitive files. The aim of this competition is player based designs of Smuggler unlimited armour, either new design or based on the current Arkadian Armour chasis as per my example. Based on the winner, that design will be put to the A-Team and Dave for consideration. This thread also acts as a petition to assess the demand on unlimited Smuggler armour in Arkadia.

    Cheers
    Bjorn

    Smuggler Armour Prototype

    This is really fantastic idea with this competition. :)

    So here is my entry:

    View attachment 2094

    A vision of Smuggler Armour prototype, based on existing armour model (Corvus). Colors taken from Smuggler weapons line (more or less ;) )
    This is how i see it.

    ____________
    The battlefield tests on Korwils and Oratans was intense. Unfortunately due to several deaths, the lab engineers decided to prepare second prototype with additional metal plates. However composition of used metal plates are still unknown.

    Good luck ppl!

    Doesn't really matter what it looks like as long as it has 60++ Penetration, Shrapnel and Burn protection each :)

    Wow, those are hard to see. I've attached them to the post to make them a bit easier.

    Thanks guys for your comments and likes.... I have brighten up the pics a bit, please tell me if its okay.

    [​IMG]

    Insert:
    i based this off the musca armour from TT.
    however, i have an additional idea of having this design on a shiny blue leather with green sheen. something like a biker's outfit. the blue and green would be similar to the gun's colours.
