First of all, love the naming scheme. 10/10. Second, I'm a bitch and I'm trying to come up with as many problems as I can when I look at these, tis' called being the Devil's Advocate.Frostdemon727 wrote: <---- Pics
16 players? It certainly is a big sub, but maybe not *that* big.
This one is quite a popular one and I personally really like it. Although I dislike the way the ladders are set up so that you have to keep changing, at the same time I love the realism in that, and so I consider that a plus. One of the few downsides is the general layout of the submarine is a little iffy, once you look at the big picture. The position of rooms and things like guns could definitely have used a little more pre-thought or trial and error, it's one of those subs where no matter how much you play it you'll never fully understand where exactly everything is because of that. It also has alot of empty space - Although this makes the sub seem more appropriate for a number of players like 16, there's still a lack of actual things all 16 people should do. It seems like you made space for the sake of space, not to serve any particular function. It also seems to be missing a southern docking port for use with the default shuttles, but that's fine so long as people know to use your custom shuttle instead of the default ones. (Such as if it says so in the description)
Aesthetics are...Well the wiring is nice, everything is positioned nicely and semi-symmetrically, I'd give it about a 7/10. The shape of the submarine and the tiny problems like how much the bridge sticks out, the engine, etc really bring it down. But that's perfectly excusable and fine in my book. Good job!
Again, much like the Blizzard it seems as though the layout of this sub is very haphazard and you just continually added things until it worked, not removed things or kept spare space for the sake of a categorical layout. An example, medical down in the gun area, the mid-top gun controls being far away because you replaced it with the airlock, etc.
Aesthetics are passable, maybe a 5/10. The shape of the submarine isn't bad in anyway, but I can't say it's any good either. Wiring's absolutely fine. The backgrounds are quite bland, but that can be seen as a positive depending on what ambience you like to play with. Command is not segregated, which can be a problem when griefers or traitors come to play.
Although I can't say that this sub is bad in anyway, on the contrary it's quite good, it's just too generic and I don't personally like this one as much as the Blizzard.
Docking system looks pretty primitive, odd window/wall placement, it's literally a box, and wiring is slightly unappealing. You could make this in 5 minutes. It has no redeeming features to be chosen over the default 2 shuttles, maybe decorate it a little and improve docking. You've got excess space to add a few more fancy things, too.
The Icepeak Model 1
Eh. Single, central ladders can be annoying especially with the people who lag and get thrown off and killed. The layout is, again, haphazard, the aesthetics are meh, shape is weird, those junctions give me nightmares and what even is command. Eh.
I'd still prefer to play it over the Aegir and it does have plenty of firepower, but it's still no Blizzard by any regard.
Overall, I think the biggest problem with all of the subs is layout. I think they all need a little more time and patience put into them. They're still nice submarines, and as I said the naming scheme is top notch. I hope you make more, I sincerely do.
