Post Dreadnought deployment device
So, i think this might be a bit much to ask, but i had an idea that i thought would be pretty cool, if it works.

Now what i was thinking is, a modified rocklet, that, when you land, and change the pie menu status to "Stay", a little animation happens, and that rocklet turns into a dreadnought.

Now, given my shatnery modding capability, i'm really looking for someone who knows what there doing (more so than a sub-par self taught procrastination-machine ), and perhaps a spriter.

Anyone else like the idea? :???:

That's a cool idea that I thought of ages ago! Although I cannot do anything for you to help with it, sadly.

If you provide me with the sprites of a rocklet turning into a dreadnought I would do the scripting, which would be, in my opinion, the easiest part.

It would make the craft pin itself on the ground, change it's frames, and when it reaches the frame in which it is a dreadnought, you delete the craft and place the ACrab in it's place.

Oh hell are these rough, OK, here they are.

They were made in paint, and saved with the Snipping Tool.

The animation should be fairly quick, i dont know what to do for gibs yet, if any gibs at all.
