[Ship][AE] Mantis Frigate

Postby PR0T05T33L » Sun Aug 27, 2017 12:47 pm

Mantis Frigate Type A - 'Ire of Coronatus'
This modified Mantis warship carries a large pirate crew led by the young Hyman Coronatus and a massive artillery laser flak cannon, but not much else.
Despite the odds, the crew of the 'Ire of Coronatus' is confident they can survive. Or perhaps, they're just very, very foolish.

I play games and make LEGO MOCs. I also made this Mantis Frigate mod and with some help, revived The Acerbus.

Just as a heads up, use mediafire or dropbox as a downloader.

Edit: Also, the mini-ship image isnt that bad, it's a common thing for most modders to shrink ships like that.

Edit Edit: It appears the Burst Laser I (in the image) has been replaced with a Burst II when playing with the actual ship. Can't tell if intentional or not.

In the blueprints the tag <name>LASER_MANTIS_ARTILLERY</name> is not needed at all.

I'd rather use Google Drive, because I already have it and as far as I'm aware, both Mediafire and Dropbox delete your account if you don't check in on it regularly.

I've just updated the preview images.

I did a run all the way to Sector 5 on hard(a pretty quick run, like my usual runs) and sometimes went rough through some rough patches, but it's like all of my runs.

But onto more important matters;

This ship plays a lot like the Federation A, since you'll be dispatching ships faster then your artillery can fire.
The thing about the artillery however, I feel like the radius of it is a tad too small; a radius of 35 is smaller then a 2x2 room. Making it a 9 damage, deathly accurate laser. Toning down the damage also might balance it more.

But still, gratz on releasing your first ship.

I'll adjust the radius and replace the Burst Laser II in the next version.

Type A v1.1 is uploaded! I changed the artillery weapon's radius from 35 to 50; hopefully, that won't make it too inaccurate. The Burst Laser has been replaced and a few bits of XML here and there have been changed.

In the background, progress on the Type C is going decently well.
