Yay! Great job Wolfy.

Shrike 27.01.2010 04:25

Woo! This thing is really fun to fly! :D

Azar Wolf 27.01.2010 05:13

I'm glad you guys are enjoying it (and I'm sure george would be too)! ^^ :D

Azar Wolf 27.01.2010 05:13

[glad that you are enjoying it, though I think he'd enjoy the ship as well, considering he DID make the original XD]

very cool :D

Azar Wolf 27.01.2010 16:24

I will soon (this morning, or this evening) be uploading a new version that fixes the point of rotation slightly; this will get the exhaust image to line up better, and will make its turning appear more centered.

Azar Wolf 27.01.2010 17:02

It is now updated to 1.1

Darth Saber 27.01.2010 18:45

I love the look of this ship; great job Wolfy!

Blitz 27.01.2010 19:16

Nice ship. Love it, but "" ?

Azar Wolf 28.01.2010 01:01

Yeah, I know about the filename... Xelerus doesn't update mod name changes to the file name.

Blitz 28.01.2010 08:48

I vote to have this balance approved too.

Blitz 28.01.2010 17:34

You can't have more than 170 tons (70+100 = 170) and can never reach the maximum of 175 tons. Fix?

Azar Wolf 29.01.2010 00:26

That's interesting... I never knew it got capped like that... I think I will ask george about it. I'll release a temporary patch later.

Azar Wolf 04.02.2010 01:15

Updated to 1.1b at 117 downloads. Update NOT NECESSARY, but recommended [no conflicts with changing, and adds some TMU functionality for future version of TMU]

Shrike 11.03.2010 08:08

This is one of the best ships I've used.....put a Hanzo+225% on it, and it's INSANE.

Azar Wolf 14.03.2010 18:05


I think a Hanzo+225% is pretty insane already!

Updated to Osaka playership 1.1c: now requires Transcendence RC8

Azar Wolf 29.05.2010 23:09

(RC8 at least; works with newer versions too)

Azar Wolf 14.03.2011 19:54

Updated to version 1.1d at 1447 downloads!

Minimum version of Transcendence required: 1.0 RC8

Updated to version 1.1e at 1447 downloads

Minimum version of Transcendence required: 1.0 RC8

Due to a bug in versions of Transcendence less than 1.02, I will not be supporting this mod for pre 1.05 versions of transcendence.

I will be uploading a new version shortly with appropriate version string tweaks.

Virtually perfectly balanced ship. Looks good, plays good. Acceleration is significantly better than the freighter's, and the Osaka turns more quickly.

Slightly weak during the early game; starts with a very nice shield (same as the Wolfen), but paper armor and an underpowered main weapon. Recommend.

WillyTheSquid 09.02.2012 20:33

!!! Just found this out:

This playership has way better scanner range than virtually every other playership, vanilla or not. Using a Targeting ROM, you can pinpoint enemies from 2-3 screens away. Incredibly useful for targeting enemies from far away and for finding wrecks/crates. This discovery has cemented this ship as one of the best playerships available, in my opinion.
