Medium Lifter Papercraft by gpsc Medium Lifter Papercraft by gpsc
No this isn't based off of my model ([link]), this appears to be an exact rip from Descent which is interesting as I have not been able to find a program that will let you convert PM to any usable format. My guide-bot ([link]) was actually made from a replica model that was available on www.descent-network.com (is that site still even around?)
anywho, thank you to ~paperart for e-mailing me the model. We don't know who to credit the model to.

Great job on this.
The Medium Lifter is my favorite Descent robot, and you've done a very good job putting him in paper form :)

I remember when you uploaded your guidebot model to descentBB.

Somebody on dbb posted models of the three ships from d3 about a year earlier. I kinda stopped going to dbb when they made a second forum. Why .com and .net? Anyways

yeah I'm not sure why that's the way they abbreviation it. Confuses me too how GameCube gets abbreviated. I would say "NGC" but it's "GCN" oh well lol

I never really got the point of melee enemies like these guys. I mean yeah, they can soak up more hits than other robots, but they never really damage you that bad unless they pin you against lava or a force field. The ones in D2 are nastier because when you strike them w/ EN weapons they release fairly damaging homing plasma rounds (ala smart missiles) but this can be overcome by missiles or using the vulcan/gauss cannons.

well they're more interesting than a bunch of Class 1 and Class 2 drones. I hate people who fill custom levels with a punch of Purple Hulks though :XD:

I hate the Mini Bosses too, they're so freaking tough (Two Mega Missiles AND a Homing Missile to destroy them...) add to that that they rip the fk outta your shielding w/ their fusion cannons. Thank god they fire so slowly though, huh? You gonna try to do a papercraft of all the bots eventually? I'd like to see some of other D2 bosses done that way.

hard to say. Like I said I've not been able to find a program that converts the PM models into anything I can use (3DS, DXF, even COB). and the Descent-Network is dying a slow death last I checked. The Class 1 Drone I did was ripped from D3. Speaking of, you never showed me a pic lol

Yeah, I had to scrap the project after my cat decided it wanted to play with my guide bot and my class 1 drone and destroyed them faster than an Earthshaker to the face on Insane (which is REALLY fun if you're invulnerable)

The main point of doing it is just to play around w/ invulnerability.
