As to sounds, try googling public domain sound effects. You might find something good there.
You are my hero.
Singularity Projector has appropriate SFX now.
I began work on the second weapon (working name "Disruptor") before work today. As a replacement for the Burst Laser Mk II, I'm thinking it'll require 3 power, 3x shots 1dmg each, and pierce one shield. Slightly higher charge time, maybe only by 1s or so (negligible once your crewmen start gaining skill). As a general rule, I like the notion that "Obsidian"-grade weapons have high power requirements and equally high damage potential. Also, as a subset of the Crystal tech, similar shield-piercing capabilities make sense.
I've bumped the starting power up to 9, which makes the S.Proj a little more viable in the beginning, without having to sacrifice two other systems to power it.
I'm also contemplating adding some more (empty) rooms and trying to space out the existing ones a little. Having everything clustered together is handy for repair purposes but leaves the ship itself incredibly vulnerable to beams or other widespread damage. And they almost always seem to find my O2 room. It's like some weird magnet for enemy fire...
Technically a 1.2 update is feasible right now, but since I seem to be on a roll with progress here, I've been holding off another release until everything is in order. Hopefully I can get everything to 100% by tomorrow and call this mod "finished" as I've been struck by a number of other ideas I'd like to explore and I fear I may be wearing myself out over a single ship.
So for anyone still reading this far, what would you like to see next from me?
-Obsidian-themed Enemy/Neutral (NPC) ships
-Obsidian "weapons pack" expansion for the Cruiser
-New "original" player ship + interior, weapons, etc.
-Other? (feel free to suggest something)
I've also got an Event mod in the works already, which should be finished or at least functional in the next few days, which is why I'm not mentioning any "events" as suggestions above.
As always, constructive feedback is welcomed!
