Sketches – Civilian Orbital Station

Civilian orbital infrastructure is common in deWulf space, and this orbital station is one of the more common designs seen. A smaller multipurpose station, it offers both passenger and cargo management capabilities as well as a larger domed concourse area. Six arms branch out from the upper level, providing enhanced docking space for ships as… Continue reading Sketches – Civilian Orbital Station

Sketches – Falke Orbital Elevator – Himmel Station

First proposed in 10.5 AS, the first orbital elevator ever built in deWulf space remains one of the largest construction projects ever taken up in corporate space. Still under construction almost four years later, the two stations have been completed, and the tether is slowly being spun in preparation for deployment. Even though Falke hasn't… Continue reading Sketches – Falke Orbital Elevator – Himmel Station

Sketches – Elysian Traffic Control

One of the challenges in managing flying traffic is managing traffic lanes. Unlike ground traffic, you can't just paint stripes on the road, and with the sheer volume of flying traffic in a modern city, it's impossible to rely on basic elevation management. Fortunately, by the time anti-grav technology is mature enough to be used… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian Traffic Control

New Art, New Details

So for the last two months Sitreps (September and October) I mentioned that I was working with another artist to potentially get some artwork done. In the October Sitrep I finally mentioned his online account (https://www.deviantart.com/d1d2m3), but now I'm finally showing off the first piece of completed art! He's pretty good, eh? This bit of… Continue reading New Art, New Details

Sketches – Elysian Khoran-Class Dropship

The Khorsan Assault Shuttle is the standard multi-purpose combat dropship used by the Elysian Army and Elysian Navy. Similar in overall appearance to their spaceships, the Khorsan is designed for atmospheric and short-range spaceflight, but is not capable of long-distance spaceflight. Quad engines provide reliable and redundant flight capacity, critical since the Khorsan does not… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian Khoran-Class Dropship

Sketches – Elysian AA Battery

The Trident Elysian Air Missile Battery is the standard fixed AA emplacement used by the Elysian Army. Packing six Trident multi-purpose AA missiles in a revolver magazine setup for rapid-fire usage. Each warhead is fitted with a small "pinch-squeeze" nuclear warhead engineered for clean yield at the expense of raw power output (the logic being… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian AA Battery

Sketches – Ship Docking Clamps

As deWulf ships grew larger and larger, it became apparent that they could no longer rely entirely on just docking adapters to remain secured. Once ships passed beyond even a thousand tons of mass, docking adapters were at risk of flexing or breaking just due to minuscule shifts in a ship's position. Changes to make… Continue reading Sketches – Ship Docking Clamps

Sketches – Planet Fenris Mk1

Unlike the previous bit of worldbuilding, I know exactly which planet this is. Fenris has gone through a few revisions, but this was the first time where I settled into a collection of landmasses I'm happy with. After doing a few other test drawings (that really were just practice runs) I ended up rolling with… Continue reading Sketches – Planet Fenris Mk1

Sketches – Unknown Planet

Part of any kind of world building is, well, actual world building. Truth be told, I'm not actually sure which planet this is, if it is one. I've crosschecked the numbers versus my references, and nothing I have is the right number of plates OR the approximate hydrographic percentage. So I think this is a… Continue reading Sketches – Unknown Planet
