Yes, I bet you are seeing that. The point is, it looks like a stealth bomber or bomber of some sort. If it hasn't said "strategic bomber", you would have probably assumed it was a bomber. And every little bit helps when combating the evils of radar, because not every tank and soldier will have personal radar good enough to see a bomber, making it that much more effective.

Might I suggest you make it look more like this, a design that pulled that off right

than what you currently have there?

Not sloped enough, sort of like a line. I'd prefer a truly delta shape. This is prototypes decision, since it is his mod, but I'd personally go with a delta shape over that flying line.

You mean you'd prefer a flying flat triangle over something that actually looks like a ship.

It's a bomber, not a ship, so yes.

The picture I posted is what he's describing - a futuristic version of the B2 stealth bomber. But apparently nothing less than a triangle with engines strapped to it will fit the SR's theme of random geometric shapes.

Well, one big delta shape won´t make it look properly.
At least agree to have it be thinner towards the edges and a bit thicker for the cockpit and the engines, otherwise people will believe us to be aerodynamic idiots.

Just try to think what a real bomber would need. For example I believe it needs loads of space for torpedoes which this one sorta lacks so I usually put biiiig torpedo bays on the sides separate from the body and build around it. I pretty much use it to define a shape of a bomber when I design one.

I did consider a double delta bomber, and I did draw up designs for it, but I've decided to go with the Atlas first.

Although the Atlas does remind me of this:
Image


Although just because a bomber is delta shaped, it does not mean it is ripping off the B-2, if it did count as ripping off the B2, then anything with wings would be ripping off the wright glider or any of its derivatives, but of course, it doesn't, however I would still go for a double delta, because it looks better than single delta, and I can't properly do any other Delta types in mine craft, though double delta looks best anyway.

I'll see if I can find my designs for a bomber

Found my design for a double delta, though this never left the drawing board, I never even though about what shapes it would require.

I don't know about the shapes but at least you are looking at it from a different angle.

The top angle is acceptable, the rest doesn't look good - too square, also too overloaded with warheads O.o .

But you can never have too much dakka

And I failed at the side angles, though I now realise that this sort of design would be impossible, as I discovered a few things don't work when I was making the Scimitar.

The B2 bomber is the only delta-shaped aircraft. ACH admitted he derived his inspiration from that design, anyway, so the point is moot.
