Post [Modding Contest Entry: Artillery] Hover Artillery Tank
So, this here is a hover ship. It shoots off unguided rockets that will explode, and blow things up. Good luck hitting stuff!

It should be noted that this mod is more for fun than for actual functionality. I really used this as a way to help myself learn how to use lua, which it did very well. It just happened to be made the same time as the artillery contest, which it happens to fit into, somewhat. I didn't work too hard on any kind of awesome sprites, mostly place-holders all over. Don't expect anything fantastic anywhere for now :P

Anyways, it works like a dropship, it hovers though. You can hold the up arrow, or W key to gain a bit of altitude to get over obstacles. The cannon is aimed with the mouse, and fired with the mouse. There is no cargo bay. Accuracy can be improved by holding the down arrow or S key, which will make the ship stationary on the ground. Firing while moving isn't recommended, you might blow your self up!

Have fun blowing everything up, including yourself! If there are any fun glitches, make sure to let them be known so we can exploit them, and have even more fun with this thing! Make sure to read the credits for this also!

Well, at first I didn't wanted to download because of the sprites, but then I swallowed my superficialism (?) up and played with this.

And let me tell you, this works very well.

The only turn off of this is the sprites, but for everything else, it's a recommended download.

I would love to have better sprites for this, but I wouldn't have been able to release the mod in time for the mod contest. Better sprites are on the way, just need to find the time to work on them.
