Any chance you could re-enable the download for the 0.7.2a version?  I'm going to stick with 0.7.2 for a bit.

Damn it Tartiflette. I leave the forum for one night and you manage to destroy the world.

I'm impressed.

Can't stop! He's just a soldier!

Just wanted to say, keep up the good work. Really enjoy DA and their Wanzers.

Hum, actually that's a case I didn't thought of because I decided to give it "invulnerability" frames while slashing.
Why would that be a problem? It would make sense if they were both attacking at the same time for them to hit each other's swords. It could also make for some epic dog fights as the wanzers circle each other clashing with swords until one gets the right angle and hits while the other is unprepared.

There could also be a light saber version!

That should be a bounty ship wing. Built-in samurai Wanzers that completely convert the enemy fleet into itty bitty molecular pieces.

There are several:
First, they are super small so there is a lot of chances they could miss each other a lot and be far less efficient that just shooting each other.
Second again they are very small so the damage dealt by the blade would be insignificant, if it registered at all.
Third, I doubt it would lead to sword dancing but rather to springy face to face jousting, a much less interesting spectacle.

Overall I'm really happy with the current system where they only attack ships with their blade. There is something exhilarating to see one of your Frost manage to dodge a Conquest fire and get close enough to slash through the whole ship's length along it's arm.

And thanks to everyone else, it was a very fun one to make!

I wonder, is the blade a weapon that can be used to slash in front of them outside of the ship system? (Maybe a lightning quick slash animation to prevent animation issues with said system if they use it right after) Maybe having them slashing away at fighters that get too close could be interesting, maybe even missiles? Probably not doing enough damage to fully destroy harpoons but swatting lighter missiles like the swarmer, i'm not sure how it'd actually look though.

About the thrid one, what if you make the slashing route a curve?

Because it would be extremely complex to take into account all the possible situations and the bazillion of edge cases to handle (remember those are fighters and they are already disproportionately expensive on the CPU). I'm a big proponent of simple systems with simple rules that have little chances to fail. In this case it is as basic as "Is there a big ship in range of the slash? Yes: dash toward its center." nothing more.

I guess I'll have to ask again, Can I use bits of your ships as a base for some kitbashing? Don't worry I won't make them red nor too obvious and I'll give credits.

How would the melee wanzer look if you made it's sword an energy sword?
