Just so I'm clear, I'd really appreciate more feedback so I can improve.
I'll at least make an effort to incorporate the advice, as shown in the first picture, I'm willing to modify designs and change, but I need direction.
I added a turret mechanism to the plasma charges, in this picture, they weren't working quite right, but they've been fixed since. It's absolutely ravaging an Epiphany class Battleship. For some damn fool reason, the Ai keeps trying to use the Epihany like a hestia, despite the fact that I set the ai to broadside and 90% of the weapons are lateral.
I'm trying to sort that out.
General fracas between a group of Scarabs, Epiphanies, and a Bloodlust.
The Bloodlust in SM.
It's weaponry consists mainly of forwards facing beamers and Omni-directional repeating cannon, though it also sports swarm missile launchers located at the fore.
The Scarab in SM. I tried to be pretty faithful to the stylized depictions of scarabs in Egyptian art, though I obviously took them in a representative sense. It's equipped with an auto-blaster and amped-up pd located in the atken disk. The pd is NOT visible in game, it was just blinking when I took the screenshot.
