Clearly they are fuel tankers.  :)

*Ding ding ding ding ding* We have a winner!

Am I the only one who wants to ram one of these things into an Onslaught and pray that Alex programmed them to be very EXPLODEY.

I think I'm the one who started throwing that phrase around, so I'll point out that while Alex thought the allusion was a good one, those weren't his words.

Entirely possible. I don't expect it to be a fully accurate description either, but it's a convenient shorthand explanation to establish a baseline for expectations.

Besides you need to add a 'mechwarrior' in there somewhere.

I like the 'armada' post
I see you have something that look like feul/infernium freighters perhaps?

That black ship looks the most mysterious... I wonder if that has to do with the, umm, source, of infernium.

Yep, those big red ships are indeed tankers. Spheres generally hold more, or so I hear... I probably shouldn't be in control of a starship.

Hmm. That doesn't sound half bad :)

I'm not sure how cost effective that would be though  :D

Sometimes efficiency has to be sacrificed in the name of splodyness.  :)

Exploding tankers for the win...

The scary part is that there are 52 weeks in a year.... :(  ha ha.

Great read (and another reason i can't wait till January :)).

And esp how you plan to release some sort of demo build, something that many great developers simply don't do anymore  >:(.
