Trireme Polybolos - From The Depths


Trireme Polybolos

Trireme Polybolos

By Carmen

Triremes, with the exception of one-off capital vessels like Tessakonteres, were the largest warships of the ancient world.

Like a whisper in the wind, the mere thought of a hundred mighty triremes surging forth with elite hoplites aboard has kept invaders away from Greek shores for centuries.

The triremes of the allied city-states fought so ferociously at Artemisium and Salamis that even the mightiest of god-kings turned away, forever giving up hope of conquering Greece.

The trireme was not just a war machine, it was a promise of hope, of salvation against overwhelming odds, as heroic crews rode upon the churning waters at up to 20 knots downwind to break the lines of enemy fleets ten times their number.

Their bravery and sacrifice means that you, today, may enjoy the knowledge, the culture and the spirit of Classical Antiquity, because without these ships, there would be no Greece, no dreams of art, science, and the wonder of diplomatic government.

It is not known how these quaint vessels from classical antiquity ended up on Neter, but when questioned about the madness of wasting robotic crew on such primitive implements as oars and catapults, the vessel’s owners would simply scream in reply, that this is Sparta and naysayers would be cast forth into the bottomless pit.

Madness, you say!?


– What direction to face the vehicle relative to the opponent (Head-On, Broadside, away, etc):
Head on because the Spartans wouldn’t have it any other way even if the sun is blotted out by a million Persian arrows.

  • [2.01] Simple weapons kills performance August 19, 2017
    Simple weapons = bad performance - No issue when looking away - Issue persists even after clicking "remove all vehicles" Quick video demonstration: System info - OS: Linux / Arch / Antergos + gnome - CPU: 8-core AMD-FX 8350 - GPU: nvidia 960 driver version: 384.59 P.S. Even a few cannons will drop performance, 10 […]
  • [2.01] performance drop when camera moves 400mt away from action August 19, 2017 so that's funny, I get solid 30+ fps when close to my ship, but if I move out further than 400mt the game stutters and lags like it's dying.
  • calculate how much power a construct needs August 19, 2017
    Hey peeps, Been a while since I loaded this up. I still have not managed to grasp a good idea for steam / fuel engines lol and I was wondering if there was a way after adding shields and setting sizes and strengths, LAMS and other power consumers, if there is a way to determine […]

  • Goliath (campaign airship) August 19, 2017
    After discovering the guardian was a bit too...well, weak sauce, for things like the Eyrie, I built the Goliath. The primary goals were to be able to take on an Eyrie and not lose, ideally win. Maybe someone else will get some enjoyment out of it, or redesign it for their own purposes. So here […]

  • I now pronounce you ground and jet! August 19, 2017
    After giving up on making a heli for my first vehicle, I decided a jet wouldn't be that bad to make, start some bombing runs on the DWG and just pester them to death while a destroyer or cruiser is produced. Looked at three on the workshop for ideas, then threw my own design with […]
