    Cool! Are planets a kind of unit, typically, in sci-fi mods (having never played them, I don't know)?

    Well no, they're just land. I'm not exactly sure how you could destroy a planet with this thing, but that's what it does!

    Awesome! We're actually going to use this as a nuclear sub, with nukes as Death Star Lasers, :scan:

    Clever work-around, that. (I so rarely get to the Modern Era that I never think how stuff from that time can be modded!)

    Ah that line from Star Wars gangster rap comes to mind (that movie is hilarious)

    "We got a Death Star!"

    Nice job, can always use a new planet buster.

    Good job, it is really well done. I like the animation. I think the size looks good. I just hope some of the older SW capital ships aren't too big compared to this.

    The trick is to be patient and turn off all forms of victory but Conquest or Domination, and purposely keep your empire from gaining so much strength as to completely dominate the game.....

    This unit was long expected.....:goodjob:
    But ahht he textures seem to move around during the default just the blue lines (they seem to be a little too big but not really a problem...) and the cannon don't move. Well this might just be a problem of the preview but that's what I see....

    Sounds to me like you need to play at a higher difficulty setting!
