Nightmare Sansha Battleship from the game EVE Online
About this creation
First watch this 2 minute awesome trailer with lots of Nightmares in it:
This is the Nightmare, a spiky laser battleship designed by Sansha's Nation. It is a very strong laser platform that has bonuses to damage and tracking of large lasers, and due to its slot layout and stats favors shield tanking. These aspects combined with the fact that it effectively halves the power and cpu costs of a full rack of lasers make it a very competent Tachyon laser platform. These lasers have extremely long range and high alpha damage, but are usually hard to fit on ships due to their high fitting costs. While theoretically a potential PvP ship, Nightmares are more often used for PvE, where long range and high damage make clearing space dungeons very easy.
From the game EVE Online: When this terror was first seen haunting the spacelanes, rumors abounded about its design, which bore the indelible stamp of Sansha Kuvakei's unique madness. Who else, the conspiracy theorists argued, could come up with such marvelously twisted designs?
These and other theories were all but confirmed during the Sansha invasions of YC 111-112, as endless swarms of Nightmare fleets descended upon planet dweller and capsuleer alike, eager to serve their returned master Sansha Kuvakei once again.
I love flying Sansha ships in EVE due to their exotic spiky designs. They are sub-optimal in PvP which is all I do in EVE, but nothing beats looking cool in space! I am fairly happy with this model, but if I were to improve anything I would try to add more spikes, particularly to the top part. It is difficult to recreate every little spike at this small of a scale.
