So, which black box looking thing on the Anubis is a cockpit? Is one a radar/sensor array? Or does it take two to fly?

One to steer, one to pedal. They built it dirt cheap, remember?

You'd think the Vasudans would have issues sending not one but TWO pilots out in a tissue box

Well, I always thought it'd be dumb to put two pilots in, but the Anubis almost appears to have two cockpits. The other alternative (I think) is that maybe that back one is a "glass" (whatever insanely strong clear stuff the cockpits are made out of) encased sensor array. If you modeled a pilot in the front one, and in the second one made the glass transparent and put in a few sensor looking things it'd look awesome.

Then I'd kill it...

I dont' see two pilots on that thing... it's too small for 2 vasudans..there's would be no room left for anything else...

the eypoint is on the box, so i guess the bottom one is the sensor array.

Uh, no.

Every ship that has been detailed has pretty much been exactly the same as their counterparts except with greebling and various doohickeys.

They're not quite the same...some more than others.... :p

Yeah...it took me a while to warm up to the two giant pipes that someone added to the engine housing of the GTCv Deimos corvette...  :p

i guess they are fuel lines.

also, who can not notice the exposed electronics of the herc? i always thought that looked weird and impractical...

Exposed electronics and stuff on ships that appears to not be heavily armored must be protected by something. I used to feel like Orions should explode if you nail a shot between the plates.

darn those countermeasures! always passing through ships hulls and taking out the captains/electronics!


captain: all beam operators, power up beam cannons! get ready, get set, FI-*hit by countermeasure*
beam operator one: OH NO! the captain!
BO 2: meh. wanna get a cup of coffee?
BO 3 & BO 1: sure
coffee operator: a countermeasure just took out the coffee maker subystem!
whole crew: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

wait...thats the fs2 scenario. oh well, beam operators are better than blob shooters.

The Dis isn't completely redesigned, just radically redesigned for the bettah.

Oh, okay, thanks.

I agree with the artistic liberty thing... the fighter is... rather ugly, and its not suprising the vesudans used these for kamikaze attempts.

make it curvyer. adding a bunch of square bevels on a vasudan ship is a nono.

Why not? The texture has them. As an excuse, just say that its a crappy mashed together ship, rather than the care taken to construct the Horus or whatever.

HTL = Less Blocky
HTL != Complete Redesign

If the texture has it, it's canon.

meshed together on a crappy assembly line with leftover parts = probably blocky.

HTL = more detailed and folowing texture/concept art

Snail != HTL expert
