The RSI Constellation Andromeda, a multi-person freighter, is the most popular ship in RSI's current production array. Constellations are beloved by smugglers and merchants alike because they are modular, high powered... and just downright iconic-looking.[1]

Brochure Description

In earlier centuries, Andromeda was the Chained Maiden, but in recent times, she has burst her shackles and been reborn as the Warrior Maiden. Now, as one of the premier Constellations in the galaxy, this fierce but faithful warrior will be your ally among the stars.

Development

The original four variants for the Constellation were designed by David Hobbins and Gurmukh Bhasin. Once their work was complete, CGBot converted all four ships into CryEngine, with contributions by Dennia Aguilar (3D Artist), Chuy Alanis (Lead Artist), amongst others.[3] In February 2016 the Constellation got an additional revamp by Chris Smith (Lead Vehicle/Weapon Artist) and Josh Coons (3D Modeler).[4]
