[RE-RELEASE] NovaBat

Post by mandoman » Wed Nov 09, 2011 9:26 pm

This is a re-release of the NovaBat. I must apologise to all for my sloppy ship building. I have gone over this ship several times in an attempt at balancing it, and getting the proportions evened out. It's basically the same ship, only (hopefully) better put together. For those of you interested, here is the link.

New link for an error fix.

Added it to the [wiki]OXP List[/wiki]. Strangely, I cannot find information about the SunBat anymore although I'm quite sure I read about it earlier. Would you have a link?

Oh, and please pull the read me and license text files one directory level up (so they are on the same level as the .oxp folder, wrap them all in another folder, and distribute this one zipped. Otherwise the text files are lost on most Mac users as .oxp folders appear as packages and can't be browsed like "normal" directories.

Dang it. I just noticed a couple of things about the NovaBat I didn't see before. For one thing, it holds 75 TC. The worst is that when you look at the ship from the aft exterior view, you can see right through the middle exhaust port, as if there are no sides. I thought I had that taken care of. Sorry folks, if I can get it straightened out, I'll release the updated version. I know you are all on pins and needles. :mrgreen:

I would love to post a pic, but for some reason Image Shack is blocking me from logging in, so I can't upload the pic. Working on it. :?

Thanks. It looks pretty much just like the SunBat, but a lot bigger, and more heavily armed. I made sure to make what would be the engine sections fairly huge so I could claim it's high speed. Whatever, it was just a tag on the SunBat. :)

Seems I missed it for some strange reason. Anyways, it's on the Wiki now, too.

I never mentioned this before, but all I can see is a frog on ice; it often (always?) happens to me with image shack-stored pics. Any advice?
You know those who, having been mugged and stabbed, fired, dog run over, house burned down, wife eloped with best friend, daughters becoming prostitutes and their countries invaded - still say that "all is well"?
I'm obviously not one of them.

Sorry, I still have problems remembering how to get the pic to appear on a forum page. I know how, I think, but I don't remember to do it when I'm suppose to. Ah, my brains are addled. I've almost got the repairs on the NovaBat complete, and it should now look, and act pretty nicely. :roll: :)
