Elite Dangerous Ship Blueprints 3.0 Update

Update January 2019 - all these blueprints have been superseded by the new "3305 Editions" here which include hard-point and utility slot locations.  

With the addition of the Dolphin, I have republished the full set with a few additions. There are size corrections on the Viper Mk III and I've added ZIP copies of all the JPEG version of each language. Additionally, the remaining translations have been applied, so this is the most complete set to date.

Thanks to CMDR Noxa on reddit for finding out who manufactures the Corilios station.

Thanks also to all the others on Twitter, Reddit and the Frontier forums who have been spotting errors and mistakes and letting me know. It's been very helpful to have so many people proofreading this lot! As you can imagine, while most of this work has been done in my lunch hour, there have been a few nights where I burnt the midnight oil and almost certainly copied numbers from the wrong spreadsheet column!

Thanks to CMDR Aidan Abacus & the CMDRs of www.elitedangerous.de for German translations. Thanks to CMDR Nicou, CMDR Aymerix & CMDR Duita Rider of www.elite-dangerous.fr for French translations. Thanks to CMDR Nyra, with the help of CMDR Kimanuel and CMDR XPi2, from Corsarios de Heimdal for Spanish translations.

    Nice Idea, but not so well made. The white Boxes on the Background are not only there for deko, they match with the scale of the arrows, that also are wrong drawn in the pictures.

    So by now that are Pictures that only look like Blueprints, but they are none.

      Feel free to create something better. I stand ready to be amazed.

        anscheinend ist mein Vor-post irgendwie in Rauch aufgegangen, daher hier als Reply und hoff kommt dann nicht doppelt.
        Frage war, ob man Deine Blaupausen für einen Einsteiger Guide verwenden darf. Der Aktuelle sieht so aus :

          As long as you credit my blog somewhere and don't alter the blueprints, you may use them with my blessing.

          Solange du meinen Blog irgendwo anrechnest und die Blaupausen nicht änderst, kannst du sie mit meinem Segen benutzen.

    I really like your blueprints, I removed the gradient from the background, changed the colours around so the paper is white and the ships blue and printed it for my 8yo son ... he is happy to have something to read about his favourite ships. Looking forward for the other German translated ships, will print them too and make a folder for him.

    one small thing, the Taipan has German and French descriptions on top of each other

      Thanks for letting me know. I will get that fixed.

      That's an impressive document already. A number of people have requested access to the vectors. I am looking into it. It's just a LOT of work to prepare. Currently the documents have four language layers, so consistent extraction is not a File->Export operation; at least to start with. Soon...

    Nice! I love it! Is there any way to have them without the watermark to use, for say, as wallpaper?

    Thanks, keep up the good work!

    These are amazing!

    Any chance of on option to pay for individual vector files? I'd love to get one of these printed in large format and mounted on my wall.

    Any chance I can get the 4096x2305 version in PNG for the Anaconda?

    I know this is kind of an old post but I noticed that the dimensions for the Diamondback Explorer in the specs on the right don't match those shown next to the picture on the left. The stats on the right are for the scout, not the explorer.

      Brent, I've fixed it and sent you a PDF of the revised version. Thanks for the spot.

    Beautiful work, sir. 5/5 STARS. I've used the diagrams a lot when choosing armament types for new ships, to quickly check out the locations of the hardpoints.
    It would be really cool if you marked up external Utility Mounts too, since their locations are not obvious at all on some ships when you're trying to place directional utilities like Point Defence turrets. But that's just me asking for extra icing on an already great tasting cake (forgive the terrible analogy).
    Keep up these most excellent works. o7

      Thanks. If I ever finish the codex I may go back over the blueprints and add utilty mount locations. The issue of free time is the biggest roadblock. I've also been asked to translate them all into German, French, Spanish and Chinese. This is kind of an endless project!

    Hi there! Wonderful job with the blueprints, they look like a charm on the wallpaper!
    Are you maybe planning on adding anything of the new stuff? Alliance Challenger/Crusader, Guardian SLFs, maybe some megaships?
    Also, are you on Patreon maybe? That's some credit-worthy stuff!

    • CMDR Arithon

      1/19/2019 11:35:02 AM |

      When free time allows I will add the new ships and fighters. Keep reading. They ARE coming.

    • CMDR Arithon

      1/24/2019 2:15:19 PM |

      The challenger is done, as is the XG7 & XG9. All of these will be release soon in a major refresh of the blueprint series.
      No, I'm not on Patreon. I do this (blog) and it's content as a hobby.
