This isn’t an April fool’s joke either. I really went and added a bunch of turrets to the Fenris. She now has 59 total! ;)



It won’t be armed like this when I am done. I just did that for test purposes and for the fun of it. :pimp:

yeah, you get the same effect when you take SDF-1 and turn all the railguns and defense lasers into Macross Cannons. All you see is yellow glows, beams, and no ship :)

I wouldn't have known that was a fenris until you told us, I had a feeling though.  Nice use of Firecracks lightning! One thign I noticed from my own testing though, isn't it turned around? Shouldn't the forks be out towards the target?

Yep. 59 guns of death!

Ok that might be taking it a bit far. Some of them are fusion mortar launchers that focus on caps. Others are very rapid fire energy turrets that will rip your fighter apart.:drevil:
I hope to get some clearer shots up this weekend.

@Star Dragon: I have no idea what is going on with those beam turrets. They are the “improved” beam effects that Firecrack made but normally they don’t look like that. It could just be the Ultra-Anti-Fighter beams are that way. I should look at their table entries.

I would love to create a video but I don’t have any software to do that right now and I don’t think you guys want a short video that’s a 6GB file.

hehe check teh tables, I'm sure there is somethig that references a pic in your effects folder that looks like this:



That's FireCrack's lightning texture (cool beans)...

I only tested it once and was too lazy to flip it around...

After a few attempts to get a good shot it seems like a video clip is the best way to show off this ship. If anyone knows of any good free software, please let me know.

Anyway here is one good shot with the list of the ships current armaments.


@StarDragon: nope. No references to any images. This is what the AAAf looks like. The effects Firecrak made replace the FS2 stock ones and I am guessing the problem of the Ultra-AAA was overlooked since it is not used that often.


[Edit]
For those of you wondering “what is a PL-3 ‘nova’?” one of the things that inspired me to do this was a weapon dump Lightspeed was working on but quit a released on his site. It can be found here. The PL-3 is just one of the many weapons in there.
