For those wondering ... that ship, takes 32 pages in my OpenOffice (font size 12) - Also, not allowed to upload to the ship database ;)

What have you done...

Maybe it's a glitch, but the ship loads in as a golden color. I don't know how to insert an image, so I just have a download of the screenshot.

Also, this just occurred to me. Some of the angles this ship has unnatural angles, well for the game that is. It doesn't heal properly as well. It's almost as if the ship is multiple ships juxtaposed on top of each other, one slightly to the left or right of the other.

In the map screenshot, the ship hull is invisible. That, combined with an active shield, would make for the appearance of gold hull.

Yep, that's the shield. The hull doesn't show up. Don't place any ships, the gold will disappear.

As for the giant ship, it's 128 x 128 - all angles are natural angles within the game. It heals exactly how it's supposed to when you play with the Ship Spawner properties :)

An interesting concept, and a fun map. :)

I dont get how to beat this level.

I was able to destory the south-east emitter and mine, but the enemy grows so quickly I cannot take the mine.

any tweak ?

It's a tough one. I don't remember how I beat it a year ago. You do have more and more and more ships, so you get to assault the big guy more. You have to some how prevent the healing process with enough fire power.

I guess this is the key to win, but there's not enough energy with the single mine (even with the tech) to support all the ships.....

I'll try again and see if I'm luckier

As far as I recall, it was a matter of getting a fleet together, then doing some ramming to cut off a section. It's much cheaper to keep a breach open than to make it - it's being repaired from both sides, rather than the entire front. Also, the targeting gets better.
