New Vaygr Artillery Cruiser •• PurpleKalamar, ???

Post by Nakamura on Fri Aug 30, 2013 4:32 am

Due to the absolutely bad design of the mortar missiles, the Artillery Cruiser we currently use isn't a very effective ship. It also gets countered by AM and defense fields completely.

Let's replace it with PurpleKalamar's Cruiser model and assign it Pulse lasers (aka trinity cannon). This would definitely make a viable heavy support ship!



The model needs to be textured, and the ship files need to be created.

Wouldn't it be easier to update the weapon systems on the Artillery Cruiser to something that works?  The existing model is not bad and it is already in game.
Not that I have anything against this model...If you want to replace a ship remodel, replace the standard Vaygr Cruiser.

You do make a good point. This ship however is not fit with any missile weapons, so it would perhaps be more practical to just turn the current artillery cruiser into the standard cruiser, with it using normal fusion missiles.

Just a precision, i let a slot at the front/top of the ship for a missile battery.

In that case, should this be a standard cruiser instead?
Or do we use it as artillery cruiser?
We can even drop the current normal cruiser since we have the ion variant already...

Discuss!

So, this model would replace the current Vaygr cruiser, and the artillery would become a Pulse cruiser? The problem here is that I designed the ship as if the hull was built around a heavy trinity cannon, and it would fit with the pulse laser system.
Maybe take this model for Pulse cruiser, and the old artillery for a standard cruiser?

I guess that would be the best option. I can easily make it launch fusion missiles, and it can have the mortar missile module pre-built(which would also launch fusion missiles).

There hasn't been much discussion on here so I just wanted to add my salt and pepper to the soup. The model above should definately be in the game, somehow. it's too high of quality and simply too awesome to be left out.
I don't really like the current design of the artillery cruiser, it has a very Vaygr-y shape with the tall and thin hull. But other than that it looks very boring.

The standard cruiser is..meh. The design is alright, it could be better but it's not the worse (*cough* Vortex *cough*) Very Happy

Thanks for the compliment SpaceCookie, glad to see the model pleases a Vaygr player Smile
Also, I totally agree with you about the Vortex.

1. It's SpaceKookie. With a K. Like Kate, my name :p
2. Oh well if the ship needs a ship file I could probably have a go at it.

3. And yes. The vortex is a horrible horrible ship. It looks like a pancake with the agility of a floaty duck :')

The Vortex's agility was nerfed hard, btw.

Yeah, it used to a Whirling Disk of Doom.

Here's a 3 part video from a game I played some 4 years ago against 3 other human players.
Despite loosing the Mothership I managed to prevail in the end. The third video shows how
awesome ship killer Vortex used to be.

I actually rather enjoy the current standard cruiser a lot :3 But maybe that's just me, I'd be sad to see it go. Replacing the current arty cruiser with this could work

I agree with Narrio here, current standard cruiser has a really "raider" nice shape.

I also wouldn't like to lose the current standard cruiser.

Yea agreed. It has a certain flair that looks nice :p It could be more Vaygr-y but I think it still fits.

Don't worry, we're keeping it.
I thought there was a general dislike towards the standard cruiser.

However, there are 2 strange things about it
The colors seem really darks
There is a calmar on the side oO (having violet cruisers with squids logo is pretty fun when your name is purplekalamaar buuuut this is a bit ... Unhomerld-y isn't it?)
