Well I dont have much to show at the moment but this will be the location of an upcoming star wars conversion of airships. It will mainly consist of some sprite changes so that it looks more like star wars along with the possibility of more weapons being added.

I think Airships could pretty easily be changed into a sci-fi theme. When ships are destroyed, they could stay suspended in the air. But what would happen when an airship looses suspendium lift? You could have the ships fighting over planets, but it's still unrealistic for ships to plummet like bricks from orbit just because they lost power.
Then again there are battles that are in low orbit or even within the atmosphere where the ships would crash into the ground while remaining in the screen.

So I have actually begun creating the mod (I was too busy to start before) and in a few hours I was able to change the rifle around and get it to seem more like a turret, I changed it to 2 tiles and because of this I think it looks pretty cool. (Also open to any people interested in doing pixel art.)
And here is the list of weapons that are going to be added (hopefully):
Small Turret (Rifle)
E-Web (Gatling Gun)
Photon Torpedo (Rockets)
Update Log 1/23/15 Added in the E-Web (Gatling Gun) and the turbolaser (Cannon)
I have recently found a way to make cannons shoot in any selected angle, this will lead to have guns placed specifically on the top or bottom of the ship to shoot up or down only.
Good, good. :D Let me know if you want assistance with some of the more gruesome bits of coding needed to make things be more space-ey.
I probably will :P
How do you do this??
Like how do you code or get the files to code?
