[Ship][AE][CE ready] The Agni Shila

Postby Biohazard063 » Fri Jul 03, 2015 5:51 am

Origin
The next in the line of my collaboration with Anistuffs. Decided to have some more fun with rock boarding, this is what "we" (insider joke) came up with. Rock boarding is good, rock boarding with a fire weapon is better. Problem is I already used all the fire weapons in some form or way. Firebeam is on the Firehazard, fire drone is on the Pyroxenite and I just don't like the fire bomb as a a starting weapon. So I decided to borrow yet another weapon from CE and ported it over to be used in vanilla AE. So we had a fire weapon, we then needed a way to take down shields. With rock boarding already strong, we decided against a laser barrage and looked towards ion weaponry. And whilst we could've gone with a traditional one, I felt I could do something cool. So I adapted the idea of the pierce ion weaponry and created my own (with art from CE again...). And that was it, the Agni Shila was created.

Strategy
I think this is pretty clear. Use the Ion phaser to take down the shields and ionize another system (like weapons), hit them with the plasma thrower and send in the rockmen.
You're still able to take down AI ships, but timing is a bit tricky. ;)
With no systems in a 2x2 room, quick repairs are usually out of the question. But thanks to the layout of this ship you can vent each system individually and relatively quick as well.

Other useful info
The ship replaces Rock C.

The ship has an artillery mount and weapon for those playing with Captains Edition, CE is required to use and buy the artillery but is otherwise not required to play with this ship. The artillery is weapon is the Mother Sun Plasma Thrower found on the rock B.

P.S. The video contains the explanation and origin of the name of the ship.

P.P.S. It's a huge Bilingual Bonus for Indians ;)

Or what appears to be a pop-idol for the non-Indians amongst us...
