Adventure trials

#1
Well, time for an adventure it seems.
I have "completed" (aka survived and cleared the first few zones/portals) of many an adventure to this point with different builds and weapons but always ran into the same problem:
As soon as the first big hurdle is taken and I have resources in (relativ) adundance I loose interest in making the craft bigger which happens usually around 40-50k Material cost.
This low in interest might be overcome by input from the forums so let's see.
Without further ado, let's go:

Scratch that, start again Dang Lasercrafts at 10 minutes


A new hope:

If you cannot beat the enemy, become the enemy. I fiddled around in the designer with the 2.0 changes to laser systems and was surprised how easy it is now to build a decent, volume efficient laser in terms of material cost and Penetration.

The first enemy:

Behold my mighty 1Q-Laser with ~2500 Damage and 78 Penetration... except that it misses every shot because I'm broke and can't afford enough optics. *Argh* (Or whatever the reason)

But wait, the wanda, it burns with the might of the sun

Sadly not my laser. ...An Inquisitor showed up to cleanse me and this whole godforsaken plane with his holy fire.
But not on my watch.
Tired of suffering any more misses I wrestle control of my waepon from the AI and engage manual aiming.
One
Two
Three
A fiery ball of death and one-sided satisfacion on the horizon heralds of successful extermination. *Dalek intensifies*

With those two immediate threats gone I continued gathering resources.
So far my plan came together and I haven't moved a single bit and even if I wanted, I didn't have any propulsion blocks.

So far so good but what see my panicked eyes? Torpedos on starboard! I immediately slow time through the "E"-Menu and slap down ballon deployers. [Image: 20171018184314_1vcuw2.jpg]
Not a moment to late as the deadly metal-fishs whizzle by and a hungry Pontus starts circling benath me which I cannot shoot at. A confused Duster joins but is dispatched quickly.

I decide to place a prefab Torpedo system to get rid of the pontus and use its material to build upon my now-Airship

Still haven't moved and although the resource-zone is dry I'm still busy building, doubling the power of my laser. I hear that he shoots all the time but I don't pay attention on what as long as the material keeps flowing. Looking good so far:

The crysoprase keeps shooting at me but keeps missing with its -presumably- short range PAC. I order fleetmove commands to pick up the leftovers and continue building, thickening the hull, adding midrange missiles and such.

A flying squirrel whizzes by and explodes (top left), its erratic pattern no match for my upgraded laser.

A Jacob's delight spawns and bonds with an Atlas to hunt me down. I turn to flee as I know the beastness of the delight from the designer, hoping to whittle it down as I run. Stray shots though keep popping my ballons and send me nose diving into the water. The delight keeps closing in, Cram shells land nearby, just missing.
[Image: 20171018195209_1iruad.jpg]
I slow time to think and add hydrofoils to the bottom to catapult me out of the water. My rear jet engine then keeps me afloat long enough until the ballons come back from cooldown. A Rain spawns in front of me and the AI immidiately switches to it. Bright, white rays of grinning malevolence bore through it, disabling it quick as I vacuum its remains while still on the run.
Some may know me as the most boring, consistent person on the planet, others as the most irritating erratic.
If you can't make sense of my sentence structuring, don't worry. Me neither. Language and I are at odds sometimes.
