[Ship] Jeff's Boarding Ship

Postby JeffTheBoardingDrone » Sat May 18, 2013 5:56 pm

This ship is made to board and destroy. Launch in a small army of 4 boarding drones and 2 crystal crewmembers, and make that enemy ever regret choosing to fire at your ship.
Image
The ships is named JeffTheBoardingShip, mostly because of me being narcissistic.

I tried being creative with the cloaking. One thing I noticed is that the cloaking is a little bit bulged over the ship in use, though.
Image

I tried making it balanced, by making it have only 2 weapon slots, start with no shields, and have a little bit of power issues. This seems like a bit too much, so let me know if it is.

I was just about to make this kind of ship. You beat me to it.

Now that I think of it, it isn't really what I was about to make. Mine was supposed to be like a ship with a mantis and rock boarding crew, along with a crystal.

Lol. Those are not your ideas, i think a lot of people in the modding community already thought of any possibility already, but u cant think "i already made a boarding ship, so nobody can make another one".. since we are talking about a game that has really limited modding possibilites. Lol, i already had in mind a boarding ship (2 actually) that will be boarding class (from my omicron mod that is divided in ship classes) so now, u guys will make me to think other layout different than all of yours!!.. :lol: :lol: , well, this can happen in FTL, since the modding capabilities are really limited.

Wow that's tucked away. That needs to be more prevalent. Like, yelled from the rooftops.

At least I now have a signature :)

I humbly request that you rename the boarding drones to Jeff :roll:
