    Hello all! Daniel Kole here, from Daniel Kole Productions. I would like to announce that a new Unity Asset Store Package called Modular Starship Constructor has been released on the Unity Asset Store. Here are the videos for the asset package:






    What is the Modular Starship Constructor Asset Package?

    Modular Starship Constructor contains a complete Unity Scene with full UI elements for constructing modular starships. Use this Unity Scene to add any of the following to your creations: weapon turrets, missile launchers, torpedoes, hangar bays for fighters, and more. This package includes the Havok Game Engine, a basic game engine written in C# for handling starships in a game. With this asset package you can create fully destructible Starships with Line-of-sight enabled weapon systems. A custom pooling system is included to handle weapons and effects. Several demo scenes and tutorials are included. All scripts are in C#.

    Some Screenshots of the Modular Starship Constructor:

    I would love to hear some feedback on this package and any comments/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Working very hard to get this complete. It's undergone a bit of an upgrade that I am very confident everyone will enjoy.

    I bought it and i must say i'm liking it very much. It's a nice asset.

    I must say that it have a little problem with your "Ultimate Sci-Fi Starships, Stardocks, and Jumpgates Collection" asset because they bot use an enum with the same name "RocketGuidanceTypes"

    But i commented the enum in the BFPRocket.cs class and all worked nicely.

    I also think you should upgrade your older packages textures to fit with the newer packages. I was trying to mix some models from this asset with other models from your "Mega Starship Builder Kit" and the models match nicely but the difference of texture quality just ruin the experience.

    Keep the good work

    I've gotten lots of models from this guy before and he is super responsive and wanted to make sure I was happy. Definitely buy from this guy.

    MSAWS_TurretController.cs controls the turrets Line Of Sight, Rotation, and Target Selection.

    Hi DanielKolex,

    First of all, this asset-pack looks really nice and smooth and seems allot of fun to work with!

    I have a few questions though. That said, I'm an absolute beginner on Unity so forgive me if I'm asking stuff that seems super logical ^^

    - Is it possible to create your own fighters with this tool and make them interact with the Hangar bay of a bigger "Mothership" aswell?

    - Is the UI in the testing phase mandatory during my own game or could I create my own UI for it aswell? Reason for the question is that I would like to use these ships in a more RTS based game while the Havoc UI ( I pressume? ) seems more "Character" style based.

    - Also UI related but the other way around, is it possible to use JUST the "Creator" phase UI in my game? Say, I want my player to be able to create their own "Fighters" but with limitations and UI-wise intergrated into my own game-style.

    Again, this asset seems sick and I would love to mess around with this ^^

    hi impressed with MSC so far, love the way i could setup a spacewar between multiple teams of starships within a day or so however there could do to be a manual starship setup guide, eg i have the wasp (https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/74433) which is a really great cockpit, it would be nice to rig it for your havok engine? i am attempting to but i am getting alot of errors, your ship setup is very detailed

    are you planning on making:
    - the explosions more realistic?
    - expansion packs, additional section models, turrets?
    - LOD, 2k or 4k texture option
    - allow building smaller ships, fighters
    - 3 dimensional connectors, so a ship can be built not just front to back, but also sideways, vertically

    thanks
    Rob

    Any plans to make this mobile-friendly? I'd pay a lot more if this was available on mobile.

    Hey @DanielKolex ,
    Is the package mobile friendly (I've bought it but haven't had the chance to test it yet)? I assume Havok makes it hard to port on mobile...

    Hi @DanielKolex
    Do you still support this package ? I bought it few days ago. I am planning to integrated it into my game (RTS) point and click navigation. Let me know if you can help me on this (move ships using mouse point and click navigation). I am willing to pay for this extra feature.

    Looking at this add-on for Unity (Modular Starship Constructor).
    Question? Can one add to your parts library to expand what you have done. Export\Import so I can build my own model parts so it becomes a true Startship Constructor with work I have created

    Hello, I just bought the asset !

    After playing a few hours with it, it seems very good ! I've been able to setup big space battles !

    Just a little problem, the IA (nor the engine) seem to care about collisions? Ships enter in one another and pace trought. Is it possible to activate collision detection for the IA? As well as some kind of damage when 2 ships enter in one another maybe?

    Thanks !
