The Jade Shadow is a ship out of the ongoing Star Wars post movie book series. I take no credit for the design of this ship, or it's concept. This oxp is simply my attempt to create a version of the ship for the game Oolite. The ship is named after it's original owner, Mara jade. One time assasine for Emperor Palpatine, Mare Jade became a Jedi Knight after Palpatine's death. After chasing Luke Skywalker around with the intent of revenge, Mara ended up in love with Skywalker, and they were married. Mara Jade was an ace pilot, ship mechanic, and Jedi Knight. Her ship, the Jade Shadow, is a much newer design than Han Solo's Millenium Falcon, and is at least as fast, and dangerous as the famous smuggler's ship. It's size is about in the Python range, but it's design makes it difficult to compare to any of the core Oolite ships. In the books, the Jade Shadow sported several weapon types, from high powered blaster cannon, missiles, and blaster turrets. Most of this was not possible to recreate in Oolite, so I settled for equipping her with two forward facing ball turrets, and two aft facing ball turrets. She also has forward, aft, port, and starboard lasers, and a missile launcher. I'm afraid this ship is well into the "Uber Ship" category, because I couldn't bring myself to make her less than how she is represented in the books from which she was derived. The pictures I have of the Jade Shadow, found on-line from several sources, all differ slightly, but have the same basic body design. I took what I liked best, and this ship is a conglomeration of several artist's versions. I threw in a couple of my own design tweeks as well. Pretty much all the designs I got on-line picture the ship as a light gray, ivory, or silver color. The name of the ship was virtually screeming to me that at least one version should be a jade colored texture. I came up with two variants of the jade textures, as well as the original ship textured in metallic silver.
