The ship has weaknesses vs other cap ships. I didn't give the ship a weakness against fighters because I didn't want fighters attacking it. That's the whole idea. This limits the amount of fun a player can have with the ship, but there you go  .

Campaign wise, it's best used in a method similar to the Collosus. A rare site. Popping up now and again at opportune moments for set pieces. Perhaps coming to the rescue of a GTVA convoy at the end of a misson and mopping up. Or protecting a convoy from bombers while you rush off to take out a Shivan cap ship's beam cannons to prevent it being toasted from stem to stern.

If you're scripting missions along the lines of "Tally ho chaps. You're mission today Alpha 1 is to command Alpha wing (some damn fine pilots if I do say so myself) in a daring bomber raid against the GTVA's newest, most technologically advanced, and largest, dedicated, bomber killing machine. Now I know what you're thinking, but the brigadier has every confidence that your exceptional skill will see you through. Dismissed." then you deserve everything you get  .

How come? most 56Ks are pretty cheap these days... and you live in the US... so you should be having Uberfast cable connections or something

Thanks again.

Yeh! Besides, I live in Australia (you can't get much further from American servers) with a 56k, and I regularly download 70mb files. What you need is an unlimited hours/download account and GetRight or GoZilla

well for one thing it isn't my computer, it's my parents. it has some crapy intigrated 56k, in a compcrap computer, with AOcrapyL ISP. I get like 18000 if I'm lucky. it's been down to 5600.

I'm gona get my own system soon I'm trying to pick one, I'm think'n one of thouse 1Ghz athlons with a 200Mhz bus and a 64meg TV out Geforce card. Is AMD coming out with anything better to compete with the P4's 400Mhz bus, the only thing it has over the Athlon.

The Athlon does have support for DDR SDRAM...

Sorry, my misinterpretation. The Athlon currently only has a 200Mhz bus and 133Mhz (DDR, effectively 266) SDRAM. The Mustang will be better...

Hey Seketh   remember that pic I sent over ICQ?  Try rendering that smacking at a Shivan something-or-other, that'll be a real eye-opener for those expecting a new ship in the Ancients line.

S-e-t-e-k-h  

Anyway, I'd love to render it - as soon as someone models it

Well, I'm sure you have a most vivid imagination.  If you can just get a concept render done, then we'd have an idea of how it looks.  It doesn't have to be a true-to-the-image duplicate.  BTW, ever tried drawing a 3D image in 2D?  It can be done (with great difficulty, but I've pulled it off).

I'd take a stab at modeling it, but I lack the knowledge and tools to even try.  And on a low-grade 56k, there ain't no way I'll ever be able to d/l a Bad Thing, unless someone out there has a CD-R and is a very generous soul...

Also, if what I just said made absolutely no sense whatsoever, it is because I know practically nothing about rendering or modeling.  I haven't any idea what it even takes to do a render.

Wait, I think do.  Let's see if I get this right:  Make a background.  Take prefab 3d models.  Position in pleasing setup.  Place polygonal object (ie cylinder) in position and texture to look like a beam.  Select "Render" from the Render menu, save resulting BMP, convert to better image format, post on site for all to see.

do you need a shivan model?
cause I have one, it isn't quite done, it isn't animateable and it dosn't have a texture (though it dose have most UV space)
but it is somewhat reminisant of a shivan.

Would you be able to finish that and put it into a COB for me (it doesnt need animation, just a skin and an "average Shivan look", I'd like to try using it in some renders some time (you'll remember the Shivan landing on the Thoth and destroying it by kicking it? something like that  

If you cant - it's no trouble, just a cool idea...

Can I just say - going right back - that the Olympus is a bit over gunned...

Darklords got a point, there are a few balance issues to think about with that thing, if it lost half it's guns it'd still bea massive threat...
