File Description

Inyri has modeled the R41 Starchaser first seen in X-Wing Alliance! Although this one is a lot more detailed, it still looks like an R41 Starchaser.

Now for a little bit of background. The R41 Starchaser is a starfighter comparable to the Z-95 Headhunter. In fact the R41 was created to directly compete with the Z-95 for king of the low-budget starfighters. It was slightly faster and slightly more powerful, thus making it a popular choice for smugglers, pirate, and criminal organization, such as Black Sun.

Because of its status as a budget fighter, the R41 is generally "personalized" by whoever is using it. The producers of the R41, Heorsh-Kessel Drive Inc, creates them this way, so everything from the armament to the hyperdrive can be customized by the buyer. As a result almost no two R41 Starchasers are quite the same.

This is certainly another well done model by Inyri, even though some people might not even know what it is! She has included two versions of the R41. There is a regular version, and a Black Sun version. I liked the Black Sun version better than the regular, because, I liked green and black. But the only difference between the two versions is color. I would have liked to see some missiles, or something, added to the Black Sun version. But hey, then it wouldn't be considered accurate! Adding on to the accuracy is the fact that the R41 is very weak. Two hits from a turbolaser destroy it. And there's only one weapon, and it's blasters.

Well, kudos for accuracy, and kudos for doing such a nice job.

CREDITS
--------
First of all, thank you LucasArts for their stunning (but awful in MP) game X-wing Alliance, for two reasons. First of all it introduced me to the R41 Starchaser, and secondly I borrowed a couple of sounds. Hey, if Raven can do it for JA then so can I!

The R41 Starchaser is a starfighter comparable to the Z-95 Headhunter. In fact the R41 was created to directly compete with the Z-95 for king of the low-budget starfighters. It was slightly faster and slightly more powerful, thus making it a popular choice for smugglers, pirate, and criminal organization, such as Black Sun.

VEHICLE SPAWN INFORMATION

The command to spawn the R41 Starchaser is as follows:

BUGS
-----
The only real bug I've come across is that in Siege Destoyer, where I test it, it's a little dodgy on the hyperdrive sequence - that is sometimes it'll play the sound while in lightspeed, but it seems to *always* play it *after* it exits hyperspace. Weird, huh?

---------
COMMENTS
---------
Even though it's kind of a crappy, low cost fighter, and somewhat ugly, I've always had a soft spot for the ol' R41. Maybe it's because they're so much fun to kill! Anyhow, I hope there are some folks out there who will enjoy it.

Includes:
-Custom Radar Icons
-New Sounds
-Extra Skin Variant
-Cockpit Shader
-Lots of Love from Inyri!
