Re: May 2016 Screencap Contest
Too bombastic and stylised for vasudans. Ancients, maybe?

 
Re: May 2016 Screencap Contest
Yeah seems like it would fit in with the Ancients crew.


What exactly is a missile Carrier?

 
Re: May 2016 Screencap Contest
It wouldn't fit precisely with the Vasudan aesthetic, but I've always found the Vasudan aesthetics to be pretty loose and permissible. The spiny-arm-bits would have to be passed off as some sort of technobabbly experimental subspace drive, and it would not work unless it had stuff poking out of the ship at weird angles.

Missile carrier = carrier for missiles :p

Basically I just need a Zod ship that looks fast and has plenty of turrets that I can reconfigure as missile launchers. Multipart guns with barrels sticking out aren't so good, but small non-glowy beam dishes and other generic 'lumpy' turrets work great for VLS launchers.

I'll take some more beam-screenshots later. We're allowed three submissions, right?

"Obviously the meson bomb is a form of cat-toast-device, with the buttered toast inverted, so that the cat and toast both fly in the direction of gravity much faster than expected. By introducing artificial gravity, a pair of cat-toast perpetual motion accelerator units can be made to collide with one another, and they produce an unimaginably devastating explosion. Both cats are named 'Meson'."

Re: May 2016 Screencap Contest
Did somebody say BEAMZ?


EDIT: Let's try that again, with more PBR:

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.
