[glow=blue]GTE Nilus

The GTE Nilus is something of a departure from the traditional Terran navy, built like a larger bomber, it resembles - in form and firepower - a smaller more compact Fenris.  Bolstering 2 forward firing 1.2 meter projectile cannons and a ventral E-mortar turret, the Nilus is capable of inflicting mild damage against most cruiser and corvette class vessels.  A forward deck-mounted 600mm projectile turret provides light anti-capital deterrent in escort situations while a pair of anti-fighter defense turrets guard against fighter and bomber attacks.  Designed primarily for escort and support roles, the Nilus cannot compete in firepower in full scale engagements despite the advances in technology.

Nah. Most of the really good stuff is kept tightly locked up. No web pages, nor notes anywhere. ;)

If you want to be ready for Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn, then download and play the prologue first.

Here,

http://www.wcsaga.com/downloads/files/download/releases-prologue-setup-exe.html

Then, while waiting for the Darkest dawn, Download Starshatter 4.02

http://www.starshattermods.com/infusions/pro_download_panel/download.php?did=214

You 'll understand why once you have.

I don't believe in altering engine code for every little thing, especially when there are plenty of ways around it if you just use a bit of imagination.  Thus, the answer is no; we of the 158th team will not be switching to the SCP for quite some time (if ever) and as such all our mods are designed to operate without SCP modifications (obviously).  We have our ways.  ;)

Sweeeet.:yes:

One thing - how's it gonna look for the player flying it? AFAIK, the player's ship can't be seen from the cockpit, so you'll have that turret firing, but it will be invisible to the player, so you'll have the shots coming from nowhere.

Unless I've got it all wrong, and it's a capship....:nervous:
Any fool can pull a trigger...

its an escort - a gunship. So no, it's AI controlled, not player.

Give this man a cookie :D  Indeed, this ship will not be player-flyable, the reason being that it would resemble flying a cruiser and most players will feel like they're flying with an elephant on their back.  Its for your own sanity, trust me ;)

If it had been mine, the nose would be rounder, and it would have big engines on the tail end. The forward beam cannons would also probably be Yamato style.

I like, however, Narol's work on this one. :D

looks good, but why does every new bomber now have the firepower of a cruiser?

2 answers:

A. Its a gunship at 57 meters in length, not a bomber :D
B. It doesn't have the firepower of a cruiser, just similar to one.

Realistically, this ship would only be good against Fenris and Leviathan class cruisers when there's a pack of them - largely due to the thing's lack of beam weaponry.

Very nices design, but those stretched textures on the hull seem to confuse in terms of scale...
