For your consideration, I've taken an old and moldy mod, dusted it off, and given it some new toys and friends to play with them.

GTB Surt by Aldo

GTB Hera by the Earth Defense team

GVB Imset by Woomeister

GVB Menhit by Sesquipedalian

SB Taurvi by the MediaVPs team

Railguns by Galemp

Also comes with a demo mission in the tech room.

GET IT ON KNOSSOS NOW (https://fsnebula.org/mod/railbombers)

Happy Christmas!

Known issues:


Maybe this package will inspire a coder to address these.

Oh that's a sweet surprise! Along with the other neat things, just today I took a look at the old Surt for the first time after several months and thought "it'd be awesome if somebody could make a version with a couple more polies" - and a couple hours later I already got one. :D

Happy Christmas!

Happy Christmas you too! :)
(Even though it's still 2 days)

Updated Surt is indeed a welcome surprise. After release of Hera, I throught this thing will forever be forgotten and rest on the graveyard of old and abandoned models. Awesome release :yes: !

Does that mean Inferno is going to straighten out their nomenclature?

I think the Hera (ED) is listed as Surt because there's another Hera in INFA.

Do these work like homeworld corvettes now?

My only criticism is the railguns dont seem to be very good.

You mean the weapon models, right? Those have indeed some space for improvement; they are IIRC the same ones that came with the original release by Aldo in 200X... I have a smoothed version of them with better placement of the thrusters... but it should probably be replaced entirely.

QuakeIV: I've tried to balance them against the Cyclops and Helios in terms of damage output per second. I know they feel underpowered for what they are, but they really aren't, compared to other weapons.

I... don't understand what you're talking about here.

mis-rail1-4.pof, the ones used for the weapon effect are the same ones as during the initial release of the Surt weren't particular good-looking when I used it last time (which was quite a long time ago, actually).

Oh those. Yeah, you literally never see them so I don't care. They're travelling 1500 m/s and are tiny. I would have just used a primary blob and bitmap, but decided to add a glowpoint instead.

:warp: Probably came from an old experiment were they were slower, my bad.

I've not had a chance to try this yet.  Any footage?  :)

No footage but there is a demo mission in the tech room, just a simple cruiser duel. Here's P3Ds of the Vasudan bombers.
