[SHIP] Dragon Cruiser (Made For Gingerdragon87)

When I asked Gingerdragon87 what he would want in a ship if he could have any ship, this was his response.

Mantis. Both in architecture and play style. Their ships are easily my favorite looking in the game. I also quite enjoy fire weapons to back up my Mantis assaults with. Ideally, a modified version of the artillery beam that ignites fires instead of causing damage. In terms of design, similar to the Cruiser, except with the sides of a Mantis Fighter, and a slightly more aerodynamic front. -Gingerdragon87

Description: Bording-Fire ship designed for Captain Ginger Dragon. Armed with a special made Artillery Fire Beam. Comes with two large storage bays fit for the Engi-Brigade.

I believe I replicated it pretty well from what he said. Excluding the more aerodynamic front, mostly because im a splicing noob. I modified the artillery beam for fire like he wanted, and changed the audio... hehe. I took the sides off the Mantis Fighter and put them on the cruiser after taking off the default sides with the help of Photoshop's glorious masking tool and then recolored the whole thing slightly. Comes with a full mantis boarding crew and fire weapons as requested.

Systems
•Pilot: III
•Sensors: II
•Doors: II
•Weapons: IV
•Engines: II
•Shields: II
•Life Support: I
•Medbay: I
•Teleporter: I
•Artillery Beam: I

Weapons

Dragon Laser: Laser weapon that fires 3 lasers that cause 1 damage each, similar to the Burst Laser II. Except this one ignites a massive inferno on the enemy ship with every shot. Requires 2 power.

Ginger Beam: Modified Artillery Beam weapon, cuts through all shields and causes fires. Same upgrade concept as the Vindicator. Except this one comes with a special sound... Its fucking hilarious, trust me.

Crew

•Mantis x4

Augments

•FTL Jammer

Download

Also thanks to Superliminal for the wonderful ship editor. And Adobe, this would not have been possible without Photoshop

YouTube

Bren Tenkage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09rTiu1aGiM Absolutely hilarious, fires a bitch aint it?
Gingerdragon87: (YAY) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWx64Xdn ... e=youtu.be

Additional Info

If you ask I am not new to modding, I have just never released a mod. For the past several months i've been working on my complete game overhaul called the Federation Fleet mod. Slimier to Engi Brigade mod, also I will release another ship soon that I have put alot more work into than this one that also has a very sadistic array of weaponry. Custom hull, custom weapon graphics custom audio sounds, etc. Stay tuned!

Thank you very much! It looks awesome! :D
A quick note though. You've included just about bloody everything in the resources and data folders!!!
You're gonna want to fix it quickly! It's dragging down the download speeds due to the bloated file size, and may also be illegal and against the forum rules.
Just include the stuff you're changing and nothing more!
For the "blueprints.xml", make it a "blueprints.xml.append" and only include the changes to it in there.
Check out my youtube channel. I do FTL mod playthroughs, as well as all kinds of other assorted games.
