WarShips! Because WarShips!
« on: 03 October 2019, 11:34:27 »
FINALLY back in a WarShip frame of mind, so here we go!

First up is the Essex-class CDS Architeuthis:


Up next is Alliance Naval Star, consisting of the Nightlord-class CSR Lynn McKenna, Essex-class CSR Marshal Ney and CSR Mulhacén, Whirlwind-class CSR William Adams, and Fredasa-class CSR Kutkh.

Fantastic! I have been in a warship buying spree and this is great inspiration. The diamond shark one is excellent!

What do you use for the labels?

Excel. A cell that is 85 pixels wide and 16 tall is a near perfect match for the front face of a WarShip base. Also works for DropShips, on the top of the base just in front of the stem. No special paper needed, just the plain stuff.

It's a slugger in an environment where most opponents are snipers, and there's rarely any cover to protect you on the way in. The fore-and-aft nature of the main guns exacerbates this, as an undisciplined player who turns to bring those guns to bear before closing to at least medium range stands a good chance of suffering severe crits before getting any good shots off. That said, if it can get close in a condition to get accurate shots with those main guns, it'll do horrific damage to anything smaller than a cruiser.

Whirlwinds aren't bad per se, but they're like taking a Hunchback onto an open map - your odds aren't good, but if your tactics work out, you'll be rewarded with big boom.

That Steel Viper Aegis is impressive. I like the burst effect of the Carrier and Vincent. That gives those boring white ships a bit of color.
