More vehicle commission work for Pure Steam...! The beta is out, btw! Check the link for additional info. :D

This one went through countless revisions to try and make it more worthy of the game. Like most of my previous vehicles, this one began as a Sketchup model, but I experimented with doing it all digital. Dunno if I'll do it again; has its benefits but also takes much longer.

Process:


O, whups; and I guess this is my first upload of the new year/my 10th anniversary. Sorry it wasn't something more ...significant? ¦P

Hehe, yeah no? ^^; I just know Battle City from the 80s ...and then suddenly everyone's playing something called Tank City now(?) ::fairly out of the loop with games::

Whoa.

I find my eyes being drawn to all the different shapes on the ship -- the cylinders and the slopes and the vase-like... chimneys? Guess who sucks at nautical terms XD;;;

I wouldn't want to be on the opposite side, that's for sure. Brilliant design!

Artistically I understand it. But really is a giant saw blade dead weight when you have guns?
Great pic though.

Saves on ammunition sometimes. :D

Nope. With the four chainsaws taken out there would be vastly more room for fuel and ammunition. The saws would affect stability and maneuverability. They would make it far less likely that the ship guns would hit it and far more likely it would get hit. You would only get close to a ship out of ammunition itself. Then they would be helpless and you would have not need to attack them with a chain saw.

Like the World War One side sponsons on tanks, they seem to be a good idea, look cool, and don't work.
And may I repeat. They do LOOK cool. so I'll just take my practical ass outta here.
