I was bored today and tried my hand at making a station. I started with a basic concept: A multi-leveled station with multiple cockpits, no engines and about 9 MAC’s on each level. Its purpose would be to serve as a sort of pan-optical defense platform, able to quickly respond to a threat and attack any hostile ships that dare approach it with multiple volleys of MAC fire capable of tearing capital ships in half. it’s far from finished at the moment but heres so far what i have:
Not much so far, the MACs are SENTS but I haven’t wired them up yet. If you look closely you can see there are two levels and MACs underneath the corridors to the cockpits. Here so far is what i have observed:
Able to fire on multiple targets from several angles
Placement and design of cockpits ensure no blind spots
Solid formation with cockpits being supported by MAC guns
FRICKIN HUGE!!!, takes up a huge chunk of flatgrass and would be pretty much impractical in all spacebuild maps (unless someone follows through with that player-relative skybox idea i heard about)
Most likely would lag servers (unless they are extremly stable and everyone has a good computer, mine is a custom built quad core with a terabyte of storage and a Geforce GTS 250 graphics card :D)
vulnerable to attacks from the top and bottom (needs shields or fighters to back it up)
Planned Features: More levels, more MACS, some more SENTS, some turrets to deal with the attacks from top and bottom, and some more stuff.
