Lunar X-8 Natrix Oxygen Transport Vehicle

Auto Credit Based on TheWeaver's X-6 Spyder Lunar Mining Transport

Hey everyone! Finally done with this one. To keep on with the Lunar theme, this is a fictional sci-fi Oxygen Transporter of my own creation. Would it be useful in real life? Who cares, this isn't real life.

Anyways, as usual, this has independent suspension. This is by far the most stable suspension I've made, 100% genuine. As far as I'm concerned, this my most complex/precise build yet. It is very responsive, and the suspension is pretty tough....that being said, take it easy. Its not indestructible.

Hopefully you find this interesting and unique, it was so much fun to build. AG 1 for headlights, VTOL to adjust pitch of laser turrets. So, as usual, upvote if you like it, comment if you want (I love constructive criticism! Help me build better things, tell me what should be improved!), and please enjoy!

Sidenote: This thing looks really cool at night. Have a tranquil day.

    I like how all of your cargo vehicles are armed. Very practical. But against what...?

    Practical use:
    Transporting large amounts of oxygen from oxygen plants to isolated/under construction colonies or refilling a starship.

    @TheLatentImage It's all about the mindset, to me. I think it's relatively impossible to gain anything from art unless you're willing to put yourself in the right juxtaposition. Miss the point, dull the point as well.

    @TheWeaver Awww man... you lucky dog. I've tried to see Puscifer a couple of times but the tickets are always immediately sold out. If you found the performance to provoke thought then I feel as if you went in there and came out of there with the correct mindset. And I agree with you about this game, it is a truly unique gaming experience.

    @TheLatentImage Duuuuuude! Nice. I missed my chance. I had tickets to the Halloween show in Tempe, but I wasn't able to go. I did just see Puscifer though, and it was purely outstanding and extremely thought provoking.

    @TheLatentImage I love the simplicity of this game just as much as how easy it is to get really complex with it.

    @TheWeaver That is awesome to hear my friend, as I am a fan of both Alex Grey and Tool as well. I have been fortunate enough to see Tool in concert about 5 times. If you've never seen them live, I highly suggest it.

    @TheLatentImage Both! I was wondering when someone would recognize his art, if at all. Alex Grey and Tool are two of my biggest musical/artistic influences

    Also, are you just and Alex Grey (your gravitar) fan, or are you a Tool fan also?

    @TheWeaver there's nothing wrong with that all. When I see a heavily detailed build that is an immediate indicator that someone has put time and thought into their work.
