Multibeam A by myname1z4xs Multibeam A by myname1z4xs
Gel ball pen free hand, edited in photoshop with mouse...


Multibeam frigate… Although had very limited appearance in the game, it was a very unique weapon that stands out and memorized by anyone who touched the original howeworld. This is my design variation upon the official concept.

This is just one frame of my illustration; please check out my gallery for a different view position.

From computer game HOMEWORLD [1999 game of th3 year]

we where sad because multibeam was never a production option, even the shitty raider ion array get on the menu with beast.

Yeah. That's why I liked Cataclysm. You did get multi-beam frigates.

Thanks but I still think the official design is better. However this design was intended to make the weapon explicit.

If kadesh didn't meet their doom they would have had a great slot in my Progenitors HWU concept. But "Fast Tracking Phased Turret Arrays" on conceptual Progenitor craft might not do them much good anyhow =/

Too bad the rest of 2 games got rid of them, or at least someone should adapt part of their techs, what a pity.

Bad ASS. I used the salvage corvets to capture them all and use them against the tidaan!

I assume you checked out the other one too. Yes they are very good weapon against tiddan. But my stupid fleet intelligence forgot to give me that research option, instead they go with shits like fast tracking turret.

Really? Shat Sucks haha! How'd you get past the Khar Salim? They give you the research to get the flight data recorder.

Anyway I was a total salvage nut. There is no salvage limit, even if you are past the max fleet size. There's that one mission where there are like 60 ion frigates in a spherical formation guarding something. I replayed that mission until i captured EVERY ONE and had a master HUGE fleet when I showed up at the last level LOL

Its so Fun, you should try it! :D

The stupid fleet intelligence did not bother to research mutibeam ion cannon. salvage corvette is a better design than marine frig, the later have to capture things on site but the corvette can retreat into safe

I captured every one of them.
Combined with all the HC's I caught, and the about... 100 or so Ion Cannon Frigates from that particular radar mission.
I was unstoppable. Destroyers lasted mere seconds against my massive ion cannon sphere of doom.

In the first Homeworld, you had a limit on what you could BUILD. But not what you could CAPTURE.

Salvage Corvettes. Are my friends.

Nice, is it me does it say 'SS' the sides of those interceptors. Kadeshi SS :D. Good to see homworld alive and firing.

That "SS" was my sig, 4xs = 4 written in one stork, x turned 90 degree become +, s written in zigzag pattern. Homeworld is not amount the most popular but its mile stone progress in RTS will be remembered forever.

I managed to lose only 1 during capture, hell I even captured all those trapped ships in mission 10. Damn I wish I can mass produce multibeam frgs, if that happens I think not even HCs can save my enemy.

Mass-produced multibeam frigs = beam raep~!

You should try FreeSpace 2 (a space combat sim that goes like this: [link] and this: [link]) then, where most capital ships are BEAMED. @_@
