    Took my current attempt at a t2 battle tank up against a shielded drone base with other poi's within support range. She handled better than i expected, lost all but one rocket turret and the minigun turret(which didnt seem to do much, gonna reposition that). No thruster loss, fuel loss, or ammo loss. Got stuck on trees, rocks, pebbles, and took fire from some of the other poi's, but still brought down the shield and all the enemy turrets. Not sure about her looks though, even with texturing she's gonna be a bit weird. That open spot on the roof is for access to the full cockpit, and will double as a sniper roost.
    I'm thinking I may need to add a new strategy of sniping all the trees and rocks into my hv assault tactics. Maybe we could get a checkbox for that on the turrets?

    The other day I beat a guy in a card game. The rat couldn't even pay! To cover the game the guy gave me title to his ESCOBAR Designed by @CrazyZ
    Nice I thought. I'm a miner and scavenger. Not much use for a luxury ship. But thought why not. This is what showed up when it was delivered.

    One look told this thing has had some work done to it. :rolleyes: Let's just hope it will lift off. So thought to have a quick look inside.

    I worked all day, then got home around 9, sat and watched some "Who's line is it anyway?" with the GF for an hour. Then, instead of playing EGS like I had hoped to do..... scoured the forums like a crackhead sifting through a carpet.
    Guys, do I have a problem?

    What's worse:
    Being sent to a Zirax labor colony?
    Or your prison transport crash landing on a rogue planet?

    No. Does look normal to me.
    It took me 700 hours to build my CV...there are others, like @Vermillion who just snip their Fingers and a CV jumps to live out of nothing;).

    I may have done it faster but I lacked the determination to do so:rolleyes:.

    Depends on whether I have something to work from for a general idea.
    I built the exterior of a large POI in an hour or two yesterday by simply taking a rejected concept art for a shipyard for an old game and cut it in half. Boom, instant maintenance station.
    I then spent most of today doing the interior, texture work and greebling.
    It was rejected for a reason, so in building it I customize it so much it's unrecognizable.

    The last two days i addet a new starter world in my random scenario a iceworld where the player awakes in a half buried part of a crashed hammerhead (thanks to ravien_ff for the idea ;)) so i changed the conditions of the planet a little bit like only rocks as ressourcess , nearly no food "only verry spare corndogs , seaweed if you have luck and the generator give you seas :D , and sometime a cave worm that tries to kill you :rolleyes: " and wood can you get from some bushes , i work now since 2 days on the balancing but still not happy with it :( , but at least the new patrol vessels works fine :) .

    i think i will change later the sky a little bit .

    but all this testing was helpfull to bring my starter base back to state :)

    I won't say why I know, but I know, rubber is a very... interesting material.

    Today i noticed that i made the Vindicator to large so i cutted it down from 250 to 200 meter , after that i made the interrior and finished it then i started a Victory II class and finished it and at least i tried to build 2 of the star wars walker a at-st and a at-dp :).

    the imperial II is just for size comparison
    [​IMG]
    i did not use the canon version of the Victory II it is more a mixture with the hull of the canon and the superstructure of a version made by fractalsponge , he made some of my favorite star wars modell :D.
