Post subject:  [Mod Contest Entry] Bugger Tech

Have you ever wanted a giant space beetle as a friend? Today is your day.

We here at Bugger Tech have tamed several flying space beetles for your pleasure. They're well trained, and capable of transporting cargo in their mouths! Quite a marvel, really.
Don't worry about cleaning up after them either, as when they die their body liquefies into a rather acidic substance. Quite handy, that.

We've even managed to harvest several of their explosive zits for weaponization. We've created a launcher that should be more than suitable for dispatching lightly armored targets.

This mod, of course, uses no lua files. The thing being a big dumb bug, the creature is incapable of any thought a script would provide, surely. With intelligence this low, you should feel no remorse in sending it to its demise using our premier mind control implants.

Why does a space beetle need wings? We'll leave that one for you to figure out.

Oh its realy interesting dropship. Its able to make some factions like "Bugs from deep deep space fire dat lazor bdaaaa!"
I can add gib and delete yellow and white particles from original dropship.

Looks alot alike my Myskoplexian Creature from Myskoplex.
It also works the same.

Nice work on the animation for the wings. I like it.
Maybe you could have made the stabilization thrusters have invisible particles.

I assume you mean they explode? Actors/Craft as grenades isn't a very original idea unfortunately. In fact, I made a faction based on that concept back in 2008. It wasn't necessarily a good mod, but I'll blame being 13 at the time for that.
I did it again for this mod because I didn't have time to make gibs that I thought would be satisfying. Something needed to happen, since I knew I couldn't have it just blink out of existence. Exploding also fit well with my initial concept of having attachable grenades on a craft that can be shot to explode in retaliation.
I suppose on a superficial level they do look similar, insofar as being insect themed. Quite different physiques and colors though, since mine is more based off of flies/bees and Myskoplex seems to be based off of mantises?

Thanks. It took a grueling 5 minutes in GIMP with the perspective tool!

They aren't invisible, though. It needs a way to reorient itself in space, so it expels fluid out of those and other holes when it needs to. Think sort of like a whale blowhole in basic appearance, except for maneuvering. In no way had I made myself too crunched for time to make custom retro thrusters a priority.

That is one long reply. Thanks! Yeah I just thought they worked the same. Although you really made that sprite alot better than what i did on my creature.

I wasnt too sure what colors or shapes it shouldve had, so i just made something similar to the actors.
I also had alot of issues with the wings at the time not showing up so i was kind of tired of the mod to be honest, and i just wanted to finish it.

Whale blowholes xD, perfect!
I have no idea what the myskoplexian creature would resemble to be honest.
But either way good job on the mod.
