I've been trying my hand at designing starfighters as of late as a way to change things up for my players (as they will only want to add so many TIE fighter silhouettes to their ship), and it also gives me the inspiration as to where else I'll be sending the party.
I'll be posting ships as I stat them in later posts, and would welcome others to add their own favorites to the mix. If anyone has any feedback, I would greatly appreciate hearing it!
I should also note that I am not working with the AoR beta, and after seeing the discussion of the X-Wing on the AoR forums, I decided to ignore it for the time being and use the TIE, Z-95 and Y-Wing as my guides for these ships. I'm up for suggestions if anyone wants to help me tweak them.
I am taking requests, and I'll do my best to stat them up. Starfighters are actually pretty easy thanks to not having to crunch how much cargo space is there and converting it to Encumbrance. Maybe I'll work on Freighters later. . .
Edit 10/29: Thanks for all the feedback so far! I've made a few tweaks on some of the ships (The Manta and Toscan in particular) to make them feel like better fighters. I'm still up for suggestions on how to make them better, so keep the feedback coming!
Edit 11/05: Keep the requests and feedback coming! I'm adding and tweaking as I move along, and hope to "fix" everything that was wrong.
One thing I realized in my dedication to the canon was that I wasn't checking what Silhouette was required for some of the weaponry. At times, I had a Silhouette 3 ship with a Medium (or even Heavy!) Ion Cannon, which requires a Silhouette 5+ or 6+. This has been remedied in my notes (i.e. the file I'll post to GDocs once I finish the current docket), and I'll fix them here in the near future.
Edit 11/18: It's gotten rather quiet, so I decided to add a few ships to put this back up to the top. I'm starting to run out of ideas of ships that will be worth statting, so if you have a request, please make it. I'm slowly working on my freighter collection, but that's going slowly as I keep running into a snag with the tons-to-encumbrance conversion. Still, keep your eyes open for it!
Edit 12/19: Still going, oddly enough! I started making some final tweaks to my document, and will be converting it to a PDF in the near future. See update information here.
Edit 01/13/2014: Apparently, the link to the pdf via Google Docs wasn't agreeing with ANYONE. I've decided to move it over to Dropbox here.
Edit: 03/19/2014: Apparently no one wants to let this thread die! I've added some Uglies as well as notes as to how I determined statistics, and then added on two TIE fighter variants that were requested. They will be updated in the pdf at some point after current requests are complete.
Edit 05/15/2014: We're still going, little by little. I began posting my non-Star Wars starfighters and will begin to add others in the future.
I am also adding some new fighters from The Old Republic MMO, so expect them soon! The Freighters Chapter has been taking up a good bit of my time lately, so this may be an interesting time split.
