Clearly, the greatest ship is the Pkunk "Ultimate Fury." Why is it the greatest, you ask? Well, it does 50x the dmg of a regular pkunk ship, and it always reincarnates...what do you say? Your pkunk isn't like that? Hmm, well, I did modify the pkunk ship code slightly Wink.

Seriously, though, I think as many other posters have pointed out, it's really hard to make a list of the ships from best to worst...it all just depends on the skill and preferences of a user. All of the ships have advantages and disadvantages, and I think this is really the beauty of the gameplay balancing.


ps. If you're wondering, yes I really did modify my pkunk ship as such. The reason was I needed to test the post-sa-matra end sequences and such many times, so modifying the ship made it go by extremely quickly Wink. If anyone is actually interested I can show you how it can be done!

Oh you could have done it alot faster!!! When you are about to attack the sa-matra change to cyborg mode! Then after your juggers(hopefully you have at least 2!!!) will humiliate the guard and then the evil frog tells you the sa-matra is defenceless and tells you to explode it, without a fight.

Actually Jiffa, I think a Pkunk that has a single bullet do 50 damage would be quite a bit quicker than sending a tubby Jugger to do your dirty work. Plus, if it's faster than it already was...

Yes but we are talking about cyborg, the fight ends up in 2 sec.

If you put it on flicker, yes. Might want to watch to glean some tactics, and what's the fun of letting the computer doing all the fighting anyway? Tongue

DJ was advising on how one could simply skip through the last battle, if one is attempting to debug the ending sequence. In context, the suggestion was a good one.

And it is kinda funny to watch a big fat Jugger moving at light speed Smiley

Haha, it's not a frog! But yeah, this would've worked, too...but wouldn't have been as fun Wink.
