SirWilli's Workshop: X-Wing 2.0 stuff

Recommended Posts

Wave 4 mostly finished.

The Resistance Transport was a pain in the [beep].  This ship comes with 4x ship tokens and 2x dials.  How greedy.  This made its GearBox thick!  EXTRA THICK!  Unfortunately, I made the GearBox thicker by 2mm more than it needs.  In the future, I may fix that for a snug fit.

There was a mistake with the B-Wing MicroHangar.  I assumed they were the same size as 1e BWings.  I was wrong.  Shame on me.  Luckily, if you fold one of the wings, the ship will fit perfectly.  Eventually, I will remeasure and fix the MicroHangar.  Also, I will add a color swatch on the Gear Box, like I did with the MicroHangar... Probably sometime next week.

Question:  What's gonna happen when the Card Packs arrive and new ships have more ship tokens to store than the original?  It may require expading previously made boxes... UGH!  Thanks, FFG.  Actuall, really thank you FFG.  I'm looking forward to the Card Packs.

Take care all.  Fly true and May the Force be with You.

Wonderful! thank you so much.

If I might make a suggestion. If you're redoing the B-Wing, I would find it useful if the box were made to store the model with the wings closed.

We already have boxes for the only-open version, and it would save space to have the new models fit in the smaller sized base.

Thank you for your work!

A tiny request, but not important, Resistance A Wing Micro-Hanger.  Using rebel a-wing, which works fine, but...

We'll see. No guarantees.

Good point. I might do this. All depends on time.

When H&A comes out, I'll probably just pen in the new pilots and remove the plastic base from the box to make room for new bases. *begins printing off fancy new First Order boxes*

@Racejoe, Resistance RZ-2 A-Wing MicroHangar made.  Not sure if it fits.  I haven't gotten the chance to test it out.  Let me know how the model fits.

Fixed multiple mistakes made with some of my recent Gear Boxes -- Resistance Transport & B-Wing.  When will I learn "Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast".

Also, I made Gear Box for Resistance T-70 X-Wing.  Pay close attention to this file.  IT IS 2 PAGES.  Page 1 is a Gear Box that can fix 6 ship tokens which comes from the Expansion Pack.  Page 2 is a 3-ship token Gear Box that you can use with the Resistance Conversion Kit.  That way you can spread out the conversion kit's 11 ship tokens among your T-70s.  (Because you know you have 4x T-70s.  DON'T DENY IT!)

Enjoy, Fly True, and May the Force be with You.

@SirWillibald, we should probably coordinate or something.

Alright, SirWilli's back, no need to worship false gods any more... 😉

http://sirwillibald.com/time-to-continue-new-x-wing-stuff/

The remaining wave 2 stuff (T-70, TIE/fo, RZ-2 A-wing) is ready for download, including two versions for the T-70 (folded wings and open wings). The corresponding GearBoxes are done, too, the ones for the T-70 and the TIE/fo had to be slightly bigger to accommodate for the six ship tokens.

Currently working on getting my hands on the wave 3 stuff, and of course wave 4 stuff will follow, as well. Perhaps I get around to doing the Conversion Kits in the meantime.

No promises, hobby time's limited, but you just have to be patient, I won't let you down without any word!

Thanks for the update!  I'm not seeing the gearboxes for Resistance and First Order on the downloads page.

Say hello to the first bunch of GearBoxes for a conversion kit, starting with the Scum faction. Beware, there are 39(!) boxes awaiting your attention. 🙂

Don't grumble, you asked for it. There is one box for each dial in the kit, the pilots are spread among them. Have fun and feel free to bother me with mistakes, I'm sure I've messed something up...

Great to see you back at it, SirWilli, even though I only have Rebels and Imperials so I have nothing to print off right now! :D

Out of curiosity, with covering the Conversion Kits are you just looking at Gearboxes for now or are you taking on the huge task of making Ship Hangars too?

Don't worry, Imps and Rebels will follow! 😊

Concerning MicroHangars:

My plan is to make new 2.0 Hangars for old ships when their 2.0 version is released. For all other ships, that haven't been re-released yet, you are stuck for now with the old 1.0 Hangars, which work fine and you find the complete collection on my website.

Hope you're all OK with this, but my goal was to have new self made fancy spec graphics for all 2.0 Hangars, which I can't make without taking photos of the actual ship. And since many ships have new paint jobs, I can't use the old ones for this.

I wish I could hit Thanks and Like multiple times on the THIRTY-NINE NEW GEARBOXES. HOLY CRAP! I'll do my part by giving constructive criticism.

  • The website still says "1.13 MB." The actual file is 18.4 MB.
  • Having multiple boxes per ship with partial pilot lists is great for ships I have multiple copies of, like my 2 Firesprays, but for things that I only have one copy of, like G1-A, I would prefer having a box that has Findsman, 4-L0M and Zuckuss all together. If this isn't a priority, I can just pencil in the other pilot names and exclude the plastic base to make room for the cardboard ones.
  • Z-95 has "Nashtah-Welpe" on the English version. On the upside, I learned a new German word today!
  • I love the ship specs image on the Z-95.

You're doing amazing stuff. Great to have you back!

😦 You're right, don't have a clue, why that is so

Hm. Hmmmm. Sounds like a perfectly valid idea... Shouldn't be to much work for me, just have to create some new data sets. But no promises yet!

Oops, will fix it ASAP. Or I'll some more fancy german title for educational purposes...

Thanks, those are quite time consuming to make, glad you like them!

That makes sense. Good to hear about the Rebels and Imperials, looking forward to them. :)

In fact, the new files are already partially online (PDF version), PNG will follow very soon. Just no announcement yet.

Oh, and there's a new info tab on the GearBox subpage telling you how to use the 71(!) new GearBoxes for the Scum conversion kit...
