    I'm back! w00t!

    This is a request by beboy, from July of last year:mischief: . Yes, yet another fictional meso-american ship, though I think this one fits firmly in the fantasy area. It's got three attacks, as the preview shows: Giant-Sun-Laser-O-DOOM, cannons, and arrows.

    Laza beams of death! :evil:

    Anyways, shouldn't the laser blast be pointed to the same side as the arrows shoot? Otherwise it is limited to it's own attack, not combined with the other attacks.

    Hmm, I quess I could make an alternate fortify and an Attack D, so the fortify would point the top mirror to starboard, Attack D would then naturally have the beam firing to starboard. I'll do that after I've got the sail version done. :lol: This unit's getting complicated!

    I also see it very well in a hypothetical Rome/Greece scenario.. i think, also the name of the ship supports my idea

    The normal sail version is done and done! I also updated the regular version with a side-firing lazar-O-doom, just made it shoot out of the folded mainsail instead of rotating the top one to fire it. So you now have 4 attacks to pick and choose from!

    Great modeling work on this one. Also, thanks for including the two versions. It makes this ship very versatile for mods from ancient to future.

    Wow. The whole thing is quite impressive. The arrow rains are especially well done.
