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!?

  • MOST EFFECTIVE APS SHELLS August 16, 2018
    Currently doing some research on APS shells. I have previously used shells types such as HESH and HESH HEAT tandem warheads. I'm currently experimenting with a APHE. This is for a 402mm 6m autoloader gun. Any suggestions for a heavy hitting shell type?
  • [DevTest 2.2.2] Buoyancy/stability with >2000 block vehicles August 16, 2018
    Buoyancy of vehicles start going all over the place when the vehicle reaches 2000 blocks or above. Attached a blueprint with 1999 wooden blocks.

  • Invasion of the Modern Earth! Custom AOTE with modern armored vehicles! August 16, 2018
    All Modern armored vehicles used in the campaign will be posted in a few days to the blueprint section for downloading! They are about 3.5 times the dimensions as their IRL counter parts, just imagine that a meter in Neter is a little shorter than a foot...... The custom AOTE has all the resources increased […]

  • [v2.2.1 dev] APS guns spawn with empty or half-filled magazines August 16, 2018
    I've reported this already in the dev thread, but I think it might help to put it here as well, particuarly considering I got another example. Maybe others can also speak about their experience, if they experience the same issue. Basically, if I spawn or load in ships, they appear with some guns full, some empty […]

  • Proposition Mock for the Build Menu August 15, 2018
    Years ago I designed a mockup for an improved UI. I had already written the post, even, but it seems that I forgot to actually post it. My apologies for the severe and unnecessary delay. Thankfully, I found it again in my SCREENSHOTS folder. This is in reponse to Nick's post here. I've decided to overhaul the build […]
