Gonna guess a mission in BTA where we finally see the collossus being built... and alpha 1 must protect its secrecy from any incoming public disclosure threat....

Re: RELEASE: Colossus Construction Drone
Here's another test mission to show a better way to set the drone to fly waypoints and fire it's welding gun. It's MUCH more reliable than the example mission in the original download.

EDIT: This one's better.

mjn.mixael has released the GTDr Phidias, a vessel based on the unnamed drone seen during the Colossus cutscene. This ship features a special beam cannon that is supposed to replicate the "welding torch" used by the original drone in the cutscene. The Phidias comes with unused submodel animations. In addition, mjn.mixael has also released a re-skin of the Terran Probe from FSPort, featuring a repair weapon.

The Colossus cutscene, for the forgetful or ignorant, may be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DX6bzq3M4M4.

Re: RELEASE: Colossus Construction Drone
Here's a video of the drone in action.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEPW24fZTo4

Right now we have two options with the repair beam... Type 3 which allows it to aim wherever and sometimes causes it to aim far away on the target. (Using fire-beam to force fire or it doesn't really actually fire the beam all that often.) Or, Type 4, which forces it to fire down the turret normal.. but on these girders.. it misses more often than anything else that way.  :(

I'm hoping someone can get the multiparts working because then we can use type 4 and it will still be able to aim slightly.

If the FS RTS ever becomes a stable, working, stand-alone mod, I really want to see these in it. :D

Re: Colossus Construction Drone [RELEASE]
Sorry for the necro...

But has anyone made a version of the Phidias with a docking port, so it can look like it is picking stuff up? - I want to use them as an alternative to the Centaur for the recovery of lifepods and damaged fighters...

Re: Colossus Construction Drone [RELEASE]
I haven't, but that should be trivial for you to add in the POF.

I know, just wanted to be sure

FYI, I added to 2 docking points: one for the aforementioned pick-up simulation (0.00;0.05/-0.05;7.75) and one for mounting it on somehting (0.0;-0.8;-5.8/-5.7) - the required paths were of course autogenerated
