Oh no, I'm not telling you to change them, I bloody love flying them - if anything, they're too weak since the only one who can pull out their full performance is a player. The AI just fails miserably with them, over and over. It's also pretty expensive and NOT EXACTLY DURABLE with its main advantage being overwhelming burst firepower and maneuverability - things the AI is very very bad utilizing correctly.

I'd still love to get a few Large BRDY energy weapons like that sunfire and PD mount.

Yeah, doubt much can be done for the AI Desdinova until a hypothetical future in which burst jet AI can get massively tuned up. It can be surprisingly potent at times, though.

Yeah, but those moments are more of a "Holy ***, the AI didn't put its pants on its head!".

I like to set a pair of gondolactlyus gundylatic gonedy SHRIMP to escort the dessie. They've got the tanky-ness to take needless hits, and gives the enemy AI more destroyers to worry about. Seeing them ram things to death "by accident" is hilarious. :P

It's the best when they ram something and fire the Hammerclaw at the same time. So savage.



Playing a little Exerelin convinced me to finish up the Eschaton-class Superfreighter.

The sprite still needs cleanup and such, but it's ingame. I think I'll make a new mission introducing it and the new interceptors.

Cycerin, when i first encountered your ships in some mod pack some time ago (i forget which, and when, but some pedant will tell me) i thought they were a bit fugly, fiddly and wetpaperhanky weak. My Eventide (i miss you Dante...) ate them as a snack.

Between snacks

Now, they are one of my favourites in terms of performance and my favourite in terms of aesthetic.

Bravo, sir.

Glad you like the Eschaton.

I gave this ol' boy a little facelift, too:

That ship just looks disgustingly good. Well done. Though the Kurmaraja has always seemed like it should have some internal beam weapons in the front, or beam PD in the cells, just as part of that aesthetic.

I also do miss the triangle of glowing blue dots in between the small and medium weapon mount at the bottom of the ship, and the diamond of red dots below the engines. Though I can't actually see the latter location of the ship thanks to the engine glow.

Thanks  :) I actually took that detail out, hmm. Maybe I could put it somewhere else. I need to fix a few other minor things anyway.

Did you know that Kurmaraja is one name for the mythological turtle seen in chinese, hindu and native-american cosmology, that carries the entire world on its back?
