Amazing, but we are still not dead and there's still progress being made. Case in point DTM's awesome Pirate Ship Yard



Go ahead and grab it while it's hot. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

Ooh, this looks interesting. Just as I was using it in a few of my missions as well :D

However, the download link appears to be broken. When trying to download it redirects me to the ATR6 Assault Transport, whereas the Assault Transport says See link from Pirate Shipyard.

I love the pirate stuff! This model always had so much potential and it looks like DTM has gone well beyond the original with this beauty! Same here about the broken link. I tried to guess the download URL but no luck.

Update: After one more try, the filename is PirateShipYardv1.0.exe (since you can't link directly to files, change the URL manually).

Thrilled to see a new download! :D Alliance had some cool space stations, I'll look forward to seeing this in the game.

That did the trick.

I noticed the download even comes with a seperate hangar opt. Thank you, DTM :D

Beautiful work, DTM. I'm amazed at how much extra detail you've been able to cram in here.

The original TG opt was probably one of the most basic in the game, it's great to see it get the attention it deserves. I'm going to fire up the 'Rescue Aeron' mission some time over the weekend and see it in action.

I've also got to say it's fantastic to see XWAU is still going and still seeing releases. With all the popular choices and cool designs done, I can see why it would be hard for people to find the inspiration to get round to tackling these more obscure, function-specific opts that don't have much in the way of detailed reference material outside XWA, but personally I think there's a ton of potential for a bit of creative liberty on some interesting designs. This was definitely one of those, along with the Imperial Research ship or Dunari's Casino.
