[0.8.1.2] ConnorsSilverpaws's Sinkables (CSS)

Postby ConnorsSilverpaws » Mon Dec 18, 2017 6:28 am

All subs are made for multiplayer. If a single player version is wanted, modifications are left to the reader. If you can't find tools, check the suits in their respective zones. Associated shuttles are not meant to be standalone subs due to purposefully missing parts, included only for modification by the reader.

CSS Horseshoe [0.8.1.2]
Contains an option to activate a second high-energy engine, making it a booster/overdrive setting.

CSS Twinfish [0.8.1.2]
The sub is split between top and bottom by a water throughflow, making it dangerous to traverse between halves while sub is moving (My eyes! The safety doors do nothing!) After an overhaul in balancing the ballast, extra rooms were left over and converted into an emergency battery room and nightclub. The engineers and mechanics can party with their rainbow flashlights, fancy fire extinguishers, ethanol, and hyperzine in The Ballast.

The sub comes with a dangerous "shuttle" attached. Once armed, the shuttle will detonate a nuke if its hulls break. It's a remote nuclear torpedo!

CSS Diamond [0.8.1.2]
A medium-sized sub in a diamond shaped body, meant to cut through any enemy with its two full-auto railguns.

Shuttles:

CSS Paroline [0.8.1.2]
This shuttle's outer walls are based on the shape of the HSE Pelanoir by Hoss to fit anything that wants a snug alternative to it. The Paroline is invincible. You cannot sink it by ramming, hugging end worms, opening all the airlocks, or diving it deep into the abyss. Warning: Attempting to do so with an open door may fling the user out, but the shuttle will be okay. This makes the ideal respawn shuttle.

pros:
Nice and compact design so I have no FPS issues;
Good placement of the reactor and railguns.
Overall design.

cons:
Airlock is perfect. For flooding the ship. Two doors open at the same time.
Many buttons overlap with other things, and you can have enormous problems just pressing the button while the ship is being flooded. :MTF2:
Also, ship is buoyantly unbalanced, which causes problem while steering. :duck:


I personally recomend testing your ship before you present it to the forum.

Derp. Good catch on the airlock. Meant for it to be inverted states rather than opening both doors.

Moved buttons away from objects a bit to make them more accessible.

Didn't understand balance at first. My train of thought for testing was "Does it move well in all 4 directions?" and "Does autopilot work?" With manual piloting, I can see the issue with horizontal movement. Removed the right ballast and shrank the left ballasts so it's almost floating on its own at 50% fill.

OP edited with updated version.

Hey ConnorsSilverpaws, I checked and tested both the new CSS Horseshoe and Twinfish. They have been approved for BT Public rotation and are currently online!

Both are well working submarines, good in steering and well equipped. Especially the design of the Twinfish is very appealing. The remote nuke shuttle completely works and that's damn cool :D
There is however one thing I didn't understand, why is there a hatch with a ladder in the ballast room, leading to nowhere?

When balancing the ballast, I had to remove an entire section. Since the ship was done, might as well make it a fun room.

Added the Otherworldly, the biggest sub yet in the CSS series. It's more form over function.

Hey Connors,

I checked your latest sub: "The CSS Otherworldly". It's a stunning and really new design, it's also very cool to walk through it and climb the single huge ladder :D
There are however a few things, one of them very vital:
  • All railguns aren't correctly connected (unpowered?), not being able to shoot
  • There is a blank gap (no background) at the bridge section (see image)
  • There is water hanging (maybe uncorrect hull/gap?) (see image)
  • Lag when openening doors, general lag? Tested singleplayer only.

Image

Really impressive design and would love to have it on the server, but the lag is really there. Everytime I open a door, the framerate drops. Also on several situations when more is happening, it's present. This would most likely be worse in multiplayer, but haven't tested it yet. When all the little bugs are fixed, I am willing to give it a test at the server.

Good catch on the railguns and water. Forgot to link a few guns to their respective loaders, was only checking power when going through the guns in testing. Also missed gaps in the front two minirooms and somehow passed over them in a water test. Not sure what to do about lag other than "less hulls, more walls" in future subs.

Sub updated.

Thank you for fixing the bugs!

I have added it to BT Public for multiplayer performance testing, I really hope it turns out well but ofcourse we gotta see. I will let you know if I have an outcome :)
