Then we have something good in common, Praetors. Tempest never gets old! :D

One more teaser from the Ace stable. This one demonstrates the main gun of the not-a-moon-or-a-space-station from my first teaser.

Note that the Fed Dreadnoughts shown were outfitted with a reasonable amount of armor for a normal combat ship (armor of 44).

Image

All the shots you see came from the same turret.

The stats for this weapon (rate of fire, tracking, penetration and damage) will be about what you see - except for a monstrous interval between salvos of 4 shots. The goal is that unless the fight goes really really really long, you won't see more than one salvo.

Here as my last teaser for awhile is the race entry for the monster I have alluded to. Without further ado I give you: the Devastator.

Image

This rather dark description should lend some hints to the type of mod the Devastator is intended to be. Enjoy!

[Reads description] - Hang on one cotton picking second !

"The most vicious artificial intelligence ever formed" ? - That's smack talk !
Ok Then, A showdown between Uni-T and The Devastator is so on ! :P

Unity is very powerful and destructive, this is true.

The difference is, the Devastator likes being very powerful and destructive, and laughs at the pitiful attempts to destroy it even as it turns approaching ships into clouds of expanding atoms.

I'd say on balance it's got the edge on sheer viciousness. ;)

Ah, I see. Well in that case I agree with you on that point.
Devastator is indeed "The most vicious artificial intelligence ever formed"

I can foresee a time where Devastator is going to have some fun when Unity provides some "target practice"
Should be epic :)

Its not the best image as I took it with my phone, but it should do.

That's pretty cool. Though I'm wondering if that Devastator was ever finished.

edit: looking at the previous page, it looks like Ace has even more unfinished stuff. :P

You would not believe the volume of unfinished stuff I have.

Doing the Devastator right is taking quite a bit of time, not to mention getting modding time in around stupid "real life".

Its a space....uh....thing. I was going to think of some food it looked like but it doesn't really seem to resemble any.

This thing is basically a tank, its supposed to take the damage while other ships deal out damage.
