(post your) Teaser

(2015-04-30, 02:09 AM)KuramaFox Wrote: I threw it together too quickly to give it a proper teaser here, but I made a mobile shipyard ship which makes use of docked objects as mobile construction arms in order to allow it to construct ships of such size that the far end could be out of the range of the tentacles near the spawner holding the ship-to-be.


One thing I noticed however, is that its detached arms that hover around it can actually keep up even when it is surfing along at 35 m/s. And that they are vaguely sword-shaped. Since the spinblocks on which the docking points are attached are controlled by the sail rotation things (I used the wooden steering wheel), this means I can basically wave them around like a lunatic while I jet around.

I may have to see how well a ship that swings giant ram-swords around works.

Who knows, it may even be possible to make a whiteflayer vessel with the concept.
.

But before that, it has come to my attention that someone made an avatar catapult for chucking your character around.

I must now make one that chucks substantially larger things.
.

From my experience docked objects don't do normal collision damage. I've had several instances of the ships I'm working on run into either the host body or the various other designs I have docked. That said Docked objects travel at around 30 m/s. So don't make your ship to much faster and you should be fine.
