Which looks better? (UPDATED)

Currently, I'm working on the hull image for the Lanius Destroyer, which is between the Lanius Cruiser and Lanius Bomber in terms of capabilities and overall size. At the moment, I'm pondering which of two images would be best to go with. What do you guys think though? UPDATE: Revised the hull image...

Re: [SHIP][AE] Lanius Frigates V2

My main problem with the Lanius/Crystal teamup is that the Crystal takes suffocation damage even if it's heavily reduced. This means I have to go back out and heal them (or use the Clone Bay) and I can't keep the two in the same room which plays havoc with my immediate boarding strategy (the sooner...

Re: [SHIP] The Mantis Corvettes (Updated for AE)

Actually I never noticed that there are doors missing. Possibly because I didn't have the Mantis C unlocked so I never really bothered to test it myself. But it's nice that a year later someone mentions it. EDIT: The door thing and some other things are now fixed. Thanks :) If I could make a sugges...

Re: [SHIP][AE] Lanius Frigates V2

Crystal Lanius Cruiser. Dammit, you're giving me so many choices :lol: Although chances are I'd just have the Crystal flying the ship while I use the two Lanius on boarding operations. I have weird priorities when it comes to boarding - 2 Mantises < 1 Mantis, 1 Crystal < 2 Lanius < 2 Crystals The s...

Re: [SHIP][AE] Lanius Frigates V2

It is indeed another update. I finally introduce the C variant, the Lanius Crystal Frigate, which gets a fun toy in the form of a Crystal Lockdown Drone. This drone triggers virtually endless lockdowns and breaches assuming the enemy ship's shields are weak enough. This creates absolute chaos for th...

Re: [SHIP][AE] Lanius Frigates V1

Another update for the existing Lanius Frigates. Aside from layout changes, I went ahead and changed the starting equipment and therefore the strategies for these ships. Omni's DD3 has been replaced with an upgraded Scatter Drone that can shoot all projectiles with increased velocity. As such, it ha...

Re: [SHIP] The Mantis Corvettes (Updated for AE)

Type C is a weird one since there is no connection from the cockpit to the rest of the ship so if the pilot dies it's game over and if it doesn't die an extra crewmember is stuck there. That actually happened to me. I was having a pretty smooth run with the C layout until I hit a Lanius Bomber that...

Re: [SHIP][AE] Lanius Frigates V1

Well I did an experimental run on Easy with the Regen. Sector 1, I sold the Drones and replaced the ion guns with a Flak I. Bought shields Sector 2, bought a Defense Drone and another Flak I. Mini Beam is gone. Shields level 2. Breezed through all the sectors, found a BL III, BL II, Pre-igniter and...

Re: [SHIP][AE] Lanius Frigates V1

Alrighty, finally finished this update after working on it all day and night. I redid the hull, gibs, and mounting for the Omni to be consistent in style with the Regen. She also has new weapons to make battles less of a chore, though feel free to state whether or not its too much. Wanted to try a S...

Re: [SHIP] Federation Defender

That artillery frigate, when viewed at a right 90% turn certainly makes it look like its bringing the hurt (think a stubby robot with hammer arms being readied behind it for a smackdown). -w-
