We thought we would share a little teaser today of a new OPT that is in the final creation stage.
This is being made by XWAU member Warb Null and it’s excellent.

Can you tell what it is? Hopefully it will be fully finished soon.

Have a great weekend.

It's the Telgorn shipyard.

Wow. Those doors make the structure make so much more sense to me. I only wonder if perhaps they should be even larger, given the size of the... "rooms" themselves. I just picture pretty big ships and components being constructed in there.

Ahh, nice.

I've been waiting for this one for a while.

Not used in many XWA missions from what I remember, but it's a seriously cool station and I've used it in a bunch of custom missions.

One of the things I love about it is that the Reef Home Calamari Cruiser fits pretty perfectly in the construction bay, if you line it up right. It looks amazing as a set piece in a mission. Put some Zero-G workers buzzing around it and it gets super dynamic too.

Also reminds me of the drydock from Star Trek I and II, which is no bad thing.

That snippet looks amazing. Warb Null always does such fantastic work. I'm ripe with anticipation.

Happy Earth aphelion day! Something we can all celebrate regardless of where we live.

Warbs texture wraps are ideal for paint jobs too.

I was about to say it's in the last prologue mission, but I think that's the special Azzameen version, the one called Family Repair Yard. So no, probably not in the campaign, then.

PS: zero-G workers can add a lot to the feel of a mission. I like to put those tiny containers or cargo canisters next to some of them, too, for added effect.

It's the Shipyard, right? Or could it be the Azzameen Repair Yard?

Either way it's looking great. I love the amount of detail the team puts in stations such as the Imperial Research Base or the Space Colonies. I'd love to updated versions of the X7 Factory (doesn't show in XWA but it's everywhere in TIE Fighter) and the Golan Platforms... I think these stations are the last opts that haven't been updated. :)

Looks nice! Only have one small critique to do with the round landing pads. I've always imagined that area as one giant rectangular landing deck with the round landing pads being markings or elevators integrated into it.

Edit: Thought I should add an example of what I mean.
