In the new ICE Mod that i have created over the past two months, you will find a beefier Guardian is waiting for you at Orion. Here he is, the little bastard; LEFT the original and RIGHT the new beasty: EDIT March 18: Picture is from the new ICE Mod 10c Guardian While I could have given him 50 Death Rays, or anything I wanted really - I just gave him just one (1) extra Death Ray... ... and slightly improved defensive weaponry + Specials changes: Intertial Stabilizer > Inertial Nullifier Lightning Field > Multi-Phased Shields Multi-Wave ECM Jammer > Wide Area Jammer Rangemaster Unit > High Energy Focus The tried and proven merculite missile tactic with just a handful of ships will utterly fail here. But I think it would be cool to find the new MINIMUM fleet required to take this bad boy down. And it does not have to be a DOOM Star with Stellars, it can be done sooner than that. Looking forward to your findings!
