    Here's another spaceship based on the Sulaco model from Aliens. I still like my older version, but I wanted to do a little more with this unit, since I think the design of the ship is pretty cool. This is a bigger badder version with five attacks, so use it however you want.;) I'll warn you, the download is pretty big, so it's not for the faint of heart. Enjoy.

    My God that's good. I still love seeing that shield effect kick in, gives my space opera loving inner child shiver when I see that. So many attacks, wish we could use them all. :)

    EDIT - Ooh, just noticed, that quietly brought up my 900 posts. :cool:

    Wow, now we can use your old version for one civ, half of the new version's attacks for another, and the other half for a third civ!

    the shield is great...nice work

    if that ship was shrunk down, I would think it might make a nice future era rifle...

    Thanks guys, glad you like it. I had a lot of fun with the animations, although the fighters were quite challenging.

    @ Virote, Yes, I'll have several variants of this unit in my mod, like a Battlecarrier and Assault Ship. Hence, the many attacks.

    @ Cartesian, I don't plan to make any Transformers, since I could never model any of them. Civ animations would lend them self well to these units, though by using Fortify and Victory to "transform."

    I would think that there would be INSANE amounts of animation for the "transform" part...and now that I think about it, how could you make Soundwave eject tapes?....

    [edit] wow...a triple cross post...

    Insanely nice, Insanely nice, NavyDawg. Normally I'm not to into scifi mods but with units like these, yours may be the first one I get into. I can't wait to see what's next.

    BTW- best shield effect ever.

    That's amazing. I don't know how you did half of those effects. Having the escape pods fly out just before it explodes is a nice touch!
