The GTFr Albanus


Tech Description

The Albanus is a medium sized, endo/exo atmospheric freighter. Though less massive than the Triton or Atlantis class, the Albanus is distinguished by its specialised cargo container, which can be manufactured to extremely high bio-transportation standards, up to and including the standards required for human vac-hab. The GTVA utilizes these vessels regularly for prisoner transport, a method which allows potentially dangerous individuals to be kept completely isolated from the vessel in which they are being transported, eliminating the threat of prisoner riot or hijacking to the crew of the transport.

Developer Notes

The Albanus was designed to transport cargo in atmosphere, and so the side pods need to be able to aim downwards. They currently default to facing backwards, but can be rotated to face downwards for atmospheric missions using a simple script-eval sexp, with the following data:

trigger_anim('Ship Name')

Ship Name is case sensitive and the apostrophe's _are_ required. It takes a few seconds to rotate the engines, so start your mission facing away from these ships, or just edit the table file to adjust how fast the submodels rotate. At the present state of SCP development (3.6.14 RC2), there are no visible thruster glowpoints on these pods - this is because the patch to add the capability for rotating thrusterpoints was written after the 3.6.14 fork, although it is currently in trunk. In other words, wait a few months, and the ship should be fully functional.
