"Soul" drone

    "Soul" drone 2019-11-19

    Game version
    v0.202.7
    Important: The drone's systems were made to operate on the latest QF configs as of 12-11-2019. It will NOT work with the game's release configs. The latest dev build as of this message is not updated to the latest quick-fire configs, so please get the appropriate config files here: alterintel/Quickfire . Thank you.

    A very powerful swarm drone. Relies on heavy cannon fire to batter down and obliterate enemies. Deadly to enemy ships, big and small alike. Has a "manual override" mode (fancy way of saying that you can get in the core from the door at the very top).

    Note: The guns will be ineffective against 4 advanced armor layers or thicker. Everything below that can be damaged fine. Please use this drone accordingly.

    Thanks! Glad to see that people are using it :D
    This little ship completely revolutionized starmade's ship tactics.
    Drones like this make me eager for a persistent multiplayer economy where people's capitol ships will have to deal with these!

    I hope we get even more advanced AI someday (possibly a second tier beyond the Bobby AI?) with formation flying, waypoint navigation & perhaps some planetary beasties (non-pirate mobs).
    Easy to supply the parts. Makes a cheap decoy to flee pirates.

    Indeed, and if those pirates are isanths it'll probably kill one or two before going down ^_^
    The little sucker that started drone R&D experiments resulting in a 35-page thread (as of now). How come noone rated this yet?
