HELLO CONTRAPTION SECTION! ITS BEEN A WHILE
Apart from a few silly race tracks and fairly simple tanks back at the end of 09, I have not built and posted any of the major stuff that I used to regulary post back in 06-08
I’ve been busy with all sorts of stuff including playing the diabolical BLACK OPS!!! Well I was bored today so thought sod it, I would and post a ship for old time sake.
Some of you may remember me posting a sinkable ship ages ago that proved the concept of building a warship that can be damaged and sunk with the clever use of explosive barrels
Well I thought I would expand of that concept by making not only more realistic looking but also fun to use in multiplayer which meant being wise with my prop usage to keep the prop count low whilst making the ship look real
Well I’d like to introduce you to the ICN Robur (Latin for strength)
I’ll show the ship then talk you all through it
Helipad at the back
And a ramp under the ship to get back onboard if you happen to fall off
Now for the mechanics of it so you can make your own if you want
The whole ship is very light (all the props have a weight of 300 or less)
There are several explosive barrels welded to the ship of the waterline with increased weight to keep the ship afloat, so that if they are hit and destroyed then the ship drops lower until eventually it will sink
Ship controls are 8,2,4,6 to drive and steer
I have made a torpedo for you to duplicate and copy, its on the island near the ship. Duplicate it, pop it in the sea, it’ll float, aim it where you want it to go and press 5 to set it off.
After another hit at the back
The helicopter is held on by barrels so if they got up, so will the copter
Its like the Titanic
The ships deck gun is usable by pressing ENTER. So you can duplicate it for someone else to use and do battle with each other. The gun can be knocked out by a hit as the turrent is attached to a barrel, and several barrels near by.
As a bonus, I made a TF2 wallpaper a while back so I thought sod it i’ll post it
HAVE FUN FACEPUNCHERS
