Cobra MK4

Post by SARR »

Hi folks,

a few days ago I came acorss a nice looking pirate ship. Looked a bit like the Cobra MK3, but appeared to be bigger and tougher. Well I destroyed it :twisted:, but kept wondering what it was. The Trophy Collection credited me with the destruction of a Cobra MK4. Is this possible? I never found this ship for sale. Does the ship exist or is it a bug? If yes, can I buy it somewhere?

Well, that´s what I supposed first, but I can find nothing about that ship in the Wiki. If it was in an OXP it should be mentioned there.

Btw. has anybody tried to fly a Tiger yet? I am looking for a good allrounder. Primarily I want to hunt pirates, but do some minor trading alongside......I didn´t like the Caddy -so money should´t be the problem ;)

There is certainly no Cobra Mk IV in the core game - it will be an OXP ship.

Not all OXPs have pages on the Wiki, some only have an entry in the table and some don't have even that.
Besides, the wiki page might have the number spelled as IV or 4 or... well, you get the idea.

The Cobra MkIV was one of Killer Wolf's creations, if I recall correctly.

This ship is available here and (from now) there is a line in Isis Interstellar page.
A doc file within the package contain more information.

well, thanks for the answers. there is still something weird about this. yesterday I found the King Cobra in the Wiki and installed it. it´s a nice ship, but not the one i´ve seen......as you all I am convinced, that it must have been an oxp ship, but still I don´t know which oxp and where I can buy it. I did not find a MK4 in the shiplists of the installed oxps .......anyway one more thing to find out in my ooniverse....... :mrgreen:

Just so you're aware, King Cobra had some problems with 1.79.. I haven't tested yet to see if the problems still occur in 1.80.
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

Hi,

no I was not aware of that. What are these issues? I haven´t discovered any, but I just met it in combat and do not intent flying it, too slow for me.....should I remove the oxp anyway?

I don't recall now.. I meant to write notes on it, along with several other OXPs that generated errors when testing 1.79, but I forgot that one.. don't pull it unnecessarily, but I do suggest you check the logs for error messages.. If the problems remain, there should be something in the logs.

Ok, this ist getting more and more strange. The King Cobra is shown ingame as "Cobra MK VI - King Cobra" and the one I found before installing the OXP was "Cobra Mark IV - Black". I got screens of both ships but don´t know how to upload them.......so it´s surely two different ships we´re talking about........

Cobra Mark IV Black is probably from RandomHits, which has one included, unless you've got KillerWolf's CobraIV OXP installed.

I've flown a (somewhat modified, see below) Tiger with 1.76 a long time.
It's a very stable fighting platform (great for an old man like me) , and can take a beating.
NOTE : haven't tried the Tiger in 1.80 yet.

Main disadvantage is it's HUGE, so an easy target for enemies.

Modifications :
The MK I stats are the original ones, MK II is my modifed version.
Basically i reduced cargo space and increased recharge rate.

Tiger Mk II player

Mk I Mk II
max energy 500 512
recharge rate 4.5 6
max cargo 50 25
speed 500 500
max missiles 6 6
thrust 50 50

NPC

Mk I Mk II
max energy 500 512
recharge rate 4.5 6
max cargo 50 25
speed 500 500
thrust 50 50
missiles 6 6
bounty 74 94

If you wish to apply those changes, just edit shipdata.plist in the Config folder.
