inspired noob ship
« on: November 09, 2011, 03:22:05 pm »
After reading about this game on boingboing I was into it like a pig in $hit (er, inspired).  Here is my first attempt, referencing the B-wing and informed by virtually zero understanding of how this "game" works.  But I like it. 

Name: B2
Class: Bomber
Weapons:
6 cannons x 8 plasma cubes
4 cannons x 5 plasma cubes
Thrusters: 11
Mass: 4.7 kg
WLH: 12 x 25 x 9 m

Inspired by the venerable B-wing starfighter, this heavy bomber is designed for head-on penetrating strikes.  It has a plasma conduit running it's core, presumably so it can be incorporated into a capital ship or space station as a weapons platform.  (If that's what plasma conduits are for.  And if merging entities even becomes a possibility.  I don't know but it looks cool as the plating takes damage.)  It flies wacky but once you remap the controls in your head it handles pretty well.

Okay just for kicks here is a prototype for a Battleship Yamamoto main gun.  Still at this hour I don't know what plasma conduits do, but here I present 50m of plasma cubes chock full of conduits.  It is very good at punching holes in globular balls of rock and heavy plating.  It makes my audio crackle with trembling excitement.

...also this one is built with foreknowledge of WLH so no mental remapping of controls is necessary >.<

This might be a dumb question but what is WLH ?

Width x Length x Height

...noticed it is key to the control axis.

There are no dumb questions.

I was wondering if that was what you meant. I'm so used to hearing different abbreviations thrown about all the time that I figured it might have been something else
