Has anyone ever even heard of the AI Pyrgos?






Found its POF file loitering around in Inferno's VP, so I copied the AI Thera's table data, made a few adjustments (this thing is HUGE), and voila! here's a ship Installation I'd never even heard of.

How big is it compared to that gigantic Shivan Hive thingy?

 
Hang on I'll check.....

Dimensions of Pyrgos (w/h/l):

31km
51km
31km


Dimensions of Hara (w/h/l):

38 km
34 km
42 km


So about the same size, I estimate. Taller, but thinner.

This sounds pretty dumb, but when I first saw the Pyrgos briefing icon (and later the model) a while ago I began to think of Ancients as octopus-like creatures. lol

I knew about that thing long ago. Trust an insane Inferno fanboy. ::)

Anyway, I converted it into a gigantic cannon once (Mjolnir in the middle). :D

You read my old post about the Pyrgos, right?

I would like to have a tbl entry...for future use.

Actually you wouldn't. I just made the Thera and replaced its hitpoints to a few hundred million or so.

 
I don't think it has turrets or anything else... though an installation of that size wouldn't need any! :D

Like Snail said, just copy the Thera's table data, increase hitpoints and closeup pos (so you can actually see it in techroom), and there you go.

Well sure that's a given.  :D

That model reminds me of something from ST:TNG's Pilot Episode.

Well I think it looks like the Protoshelp of CW:Red Sun.
