[SHIP] The SS Walden (Firefly)

Postby Skeleqrow » Thu Oct 13, 2016 10:10 pm

I present to you...
The SS Walden salvage ship from the show Firefly!
More info: The SS Walden is from episode 8 of Firefly, "Out of gas." It was introduced when the Serenity ran out gas and Mal had turned on the distress beacon.
After learning Captain Reynolds was the only one on board, the Walden crew attempted to steal the Serenity. After a brief confrontation, the Walden went on its way.
It is considered to be an unofficial Pirate Ship.
(I've fixed that cutoff on the left of the image)

So why the lack of Cloaking?

Also, the starting arsenal might seem a tad bit much. The Scrap Recovery Arm should go. Dunno how balanced the drone + Halberd combo is but there's probably a better way to get things done without forcing the use of Drone Control (that's just a personal preference though. I really just dislike Drone Control)

Lastly... I haven't seen Firefly in years. Mind explaining more about the ship than just "It's a ship you probably saw in the background somewhere in Firefly!"
What's the gimmick? Was it a mining vessel (hence the SRA)?
Did it get taken over by Reavers?
Did the Alliance board it or something?

Can you provide details (like which website, whose artwork it is, etc.) ?

The only remarkable thing I can see from here is that some rooms are hard to reach AND the floor background is not correctly placed.
As for the ship itself, I have never heard of it before.
Has anyone ever considered a Warhammer 40,000 Mod for this game? It would be awesome!

The floor background is fixed ingame, I was too lazy to reupload the image.
As for the rooms, I may or may not move them around. I wanted the doors to not cover the actual room image.
The ship itself is from episode 8 of the show Firefly, "Out of Gas."

I wanted to publish the ship first, I'm going to work on a cloaking image later today.

After playtesting, the scrap arm does seem a bit too much. I'll get around to removing it.

I've added a description on the original post explaining it better.

You don't need a cloaking image in order to have cloaking.
The ship merely goes transparent without anything fancy. A Cloak Image is just a fancy wireframe or image people put on top of it
