It struck me suddenly that the Greatest, Deadliest, Most Implacable Threat the Universe has ever known would be tons of fun to experience within Oolite
But Oolite already has the Greatest, Deadliest, Most Implacable Threat the Universe has ever known, surely?
The ST-TOS planet killer is dead cool though - TBH I tinkered with doing one myself a while ago then got distracted. Good luck with it and shout if you need any help.
ROFL! Perhaps it can be destroyed by tossing antimatter trumbles into its maw?
Seriously, the reason I put it here is because by the time it's done I'm definitely going to need assistance in designing the scenario. Since there aren't many Constitution-class cruisers around, I kind of like the Nova Bomb from SFC. Perhaps one can be destroyed by having it swallow a Quirmium bomb?
In terms of scenario, I was thinking along the lines of the Stellar Serpent, though just as a basis: the thing would have to arrive way
outside the core system, targeting the main planet. Can a planet be destroyed in this game? I highly doubt it - so maybe it could target the main station instead. It would need to be absolutely invulnerable to weapons, have some means of attacking player and NPC ships and be really, really hard to kill. (In SFC, the PKs were child's play; just get one to follow you and run into an immobilized cruiser.) But I'm getting ahead of myself; I've only ever built one object in G-max and that
was a lump of ice.
I'm figuring out how to use Blender (well...taking a break; the Navy's just asked me to look for a ship called a Constrictor...) and as soon as I've got something, I'll put it up.
Cheers! And thanks for the positive thoughts.
