BORON LUSCA, M7 - My Thanatos M6 included in Package.

Quote:

Perhaps due to increasing Split aggression, the newest M7 class vessel marks a new way of military thinking for the Boron. It is a ship designed for one purpose, the destruction of capital class vessels. It has optimised weapon and shielding capabilities at the cost of overall top speed.


The lusca is a name given to a sea monster reported from the Caribbean. It has been suggested by cryptozoologists that the lusca is a gigantic octopus, far larger than the known giant octopi of the genus Enteroctopus.


Version 1.5 - Tweaked stats.

Version 1.3 - Model complete.


Many thanks to Enenra (Again ;p ) for his help in the design, and the others at www.x3dmod.com





Stats:-
Speed - 95 m/s
Shields - 5x 1GJ
Reactor - 6300
Laser Energy - 72000
Laser Recharge - 2200
Hull 145000
Cargo - 5200

Rear Turret - 2 Guns

Installation instructions are included in the readme file but here's a rundown anyway. Extract the rar into your X3TC directory and everything will be put in the right place. Check the mod on your startup screen and go to Boron shipyards for the Lusca, or Paranid shipyards for the Thanatos (You'll get a message about both ships too).

Package contents:-
Lusca Scene and Body File, Thanatos scene and body file, Tships (Merged with thanatos), Bodies.txt for Thanatos, T files 8456 and 8458, 4x setup scripts, Thanatos FX engine file, 2x Readme's.


DOWNLOAD 1.5: KEEP BACKUPS OF YOUR SAVES - Just incase.
My Thanatos is INCLUDED in this download. I haven't got around to making a separate TShips. If you have the Thanatos already. Uninstall it and install this mod.

Thanatos thread:- http://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?t=233008


Hope everything works and Hope you like it! Enjoy. (This ship looks much better in-game than in shots I think, so give it a go!)

T File used 8456, 8458. Page ID's 8456, 8458

DISCLAIMER:- Axeface will not be held responsible if his mod breaks your game. This is his second mod and he doesn't really know what he's doing. Keep backups of your saves.

Thanks both of you Smile

I doubt i'll have the time boufas, I'm too busy working on these ships.
I'm currently trying to figure out turrets to some success, a new version of this ship should be around in a few days. Once i've figured it out I'll try to find another use for the ship, maybe a capture frigate, maybe anti-fighter or just a bog standard M7.

Let me know if you like the ship being this quirky no turreted capital killer.

Wow. Another ship already? And such a fine looking thing at that!

Haven't played with it yet, but I think I like you're original idea - capital killer, sort of fits with the new Boron battle methodology that gave us the Thresher, but with the weakness of no turrets... gives it a special uniqueness against everything we can already choose from.

Perhaps even tying in with your other idea, as a capture frigate, let it load up with Ion Cannons (are they useful for capturing? Seem to do great shield damage) and give it the ability to launch boarding pods (since it's so slow it's not going to get real close to launch marines manually.) Kinda makes it specialise in boarding large, heavily shielded targets....

Just thinking out loud here. Your ship, your rules. But looking forward to what you come up with next!

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you like the look of it Smile Yeh the idea of allowing boarding pods and Ion-D's was one of my first ideas too. It sounds good and I might try it. But I like the capital killer (Exactly as you said about uniqueness, thats what i'm trying to do, and as for the new methodology in boron thinking, thats pretty much what I said in the ship description in-game.)

The reason I made the ship like this is because I don't see the point in me making another normal M7, there are already enough, so i'm trying to make ships that have a specific role for the player to use in fleets.

I will try other things though once I figure turrets out Smile I also need to add more detail to this model though. Engines and the underneath need work.

Oops sorry, sound like in creating some work for you Laughing

Edit: Could i suggest a name change?... Call it the 'Stingray' (with it only having the 1 but Deadly weapon(set)). Cool

Hmm.... Reminds me at the OTAS Reaper from Xtended (not visually). Its a M6 with 12 front guns and 1 rear turret, primary for missile defense.

A ship with brutal firepower in the front should be faster for hit and run-tactics and a M7 should have at least one little turret against big missiles or not? Wink

Some M1 are faster than that ship so it has the firepower to kill it but not the enginepower to reach it (even the Boron M1 is faster)... Shocked

But a very nice ship when it comes to graphic. Very Happy

Maybe with other stats i would love to fly it. Wink

V1.2 | Added 2 Turrets. Rear with 4 guns and Bottom with 2. Main guns changed from 14 to 12.
Hope it works ^^


@spacefueladdict -
Thanks for the comment! I think my next one will be another boron ship, but who knows after that!
When I first decided to make a boron ship I was thinking of names, I actually chose stingray because I could hack betty to say it Smile But I think Lusca sounds awesome so thats what it's staying i'm afraid XD

@Marodeur -
Cheers ;p
Yeh but the reaper didn't have 5gj of shields, or the ability to mount PPC's ay.
Sure some M1's are faster, but this is designed to kill M2's, and it's faster than all of them Twisted Evil I really don't want to make it faster because it would get too good I think. It's got a lot of laser energy.
Now there are turrets for missile defence though (Well more as they are M7 turrets).

@Logain -
Thanks! Same to you with FDN Smile

@Boufas -
Cheers! As stated above I think the next one will be another boron ship probably, then something else! (I love boron ships).


Now to figure out how to dock a couple of m3's on it.

Hiya Peeps,

Axeface, young-fella-me-lad..... Razz Wink Very Happy

Simple question.... Is that a proper bottom turret or do the guns just point straight down? Thinking

Only asking because looking at the screenie it appears the guns are just sticking straight out of the hull... Rolling Eyes

Otherwise a fanbloodytastic looking piece of work, mate!! Thumb up

I only hope my ships look half as good when I finally discover how to make 'em & get them working in-game.... Wink (Got the software, just need the hands on/personal knowledge/experience to go with it.... Laughing )

Cheers & Thranx

Ah, ok. I thought i should be a M1-killer too. Very Happy

I dont want to compare your ship exactly with the reaper. Its the firepower in the front which reminds me of it (and the Reaper was tricky and funny to fly at once).

Cant wait until i can add ships with the plugin manager...
