Stars in Shadow: Phidi Ships by AriochIV Stars in Shadow: Phidi Ships by AriochIV
Set of Phidi ship assets for Sven Olsen's starship combat game project (same as ship designs here). Updated with the second set, including the colony ship and heavy carrier.

The Phidi are an aquatic race of traders. They have essentially three multipurpose hulls: courier, tradeship and supership, which are modular and can be configured for warfare, commerce, or anything in between. The Phidi prefer to hire alien mercenaries to do most of their fighting for them.

Being aquatic, the habitation sections for the Phidi are filled with seawater. The caustic pattern on the sea pods is animated in the game engine; it looks pretty cool.

See the Phidi concept sketches here.

So these guys are the xeno-equivilant of Carthage? Who fulfills the role of Rome, then?

The Ashdar, I suppose... but there's a limit to how far that analogy can be stretched.

They look very nice. Protoss ships come to mind.

Really impressed with the modular design off the ships, very well thought out. I also agree about the caustics!

I can already imagine the caustics moving. Which is a testament to how well you've drawn these.
