The Scourge v.4
« on: March 30, 2012, 10:11:08 AM »


Download Demo 4.0 (two missions): http://www.mediafire.com/?1bd1dtgdz2dmwya

Adds a mission to showcase 5 new biological ships with 6 new biological weapons (with zerg sounds provided by WarStalker).

Changelog for V.3: Added the Putrifier as a head on charger ship (it sprays acid, low per-shot HE dmg and some EMP, try to have shields to defend from its attacks), changed all weapons and ship stats multiple times so they now are "vanilla balanced" (every ship get its ass kicked by any higher FP cost ships 1v1), added a second mission to try the Scourge against a fighter-based TT fleet and heavily rebalanced the first mission (it may be even harder to beat, but that's the point).

Changelog for V.4: Added the Impaler as Sniper Destroyer (very high damage but slowest ship ever), changed every weapon and ship stats again and again (yeah masochistical), tweaked colors and overall graphics.

CHALLENGE: Anyone that posts a winning screenshot of any Scourge mission (v.4) have a say on a future Scourge ship (role AND hull used). Have fun!

The Scourge is now integrant part of Uomoz's Corvus

Zerg in space? Plague? Zombie-ships? Alien *** victim?

Yeah it's pretty much an open concept right now. Basically should be a Bio-Infestation on a bunch of ships. Huge fleets of low cost shieldless cannon fodder.

I like the concept. No shields, please? Shieldless cannonfodder ships are the best  :)

Makes them hard to spot, they'll sneak up on you even without shields.

I like it. It's fresh. It looks organic, but not too much. A few highlights on the dark parts might help the ship stand out a bit more.

This, should look a little more "meatish"

Great work neverthelesss and also taking account that frozen "meat" should have a blueish color...

Why should it have to look frozen? What if this organism can sustain itself in space and has (red) blood pumping through its veins?  :)

In space, something to be frozen, take loooooong time. There is no air or other for temperature conductor to transfer heat-cold. And that flesh is on ship in direct contact with it so it's hardly would be frozen  8)
