CSS Atlanta & CSS Arkansas

While assessing what ships to keep and what to remove for the confederate side, I have decided to keep all of them except the Richmond and Columbia. These ships were not big sellers, and they also were too much alike which bothered me a bit. However I will be adding two brand new ships to take there place so that way those that bought the Richmond and/or Columbia will not feel left out when the updates role in. The CSS Arkansas will replace the CSS Richmond, and the CSS Atlanta will replace the CSS Columbia. Above is a model of the CSS Atlanta, complete with spar torpedo.

Skunkworks Extreme

In between blasting others out of the water, and flying through the streets on a floating ironclad, we at Murakami Steamworks have been hard at work bringing you the latest in MSS brand ironclad technology. Among the new excellencies, all of the ships are being updated to ICS V3, making our ships more realistic, with ammo and fuel usage. Not to worry, as were supplying with goodly stocks of both. Adding to the list of awesome, all of the USS and CSS series are getting their long overdue rebuilds. Both the texturing and primwork are being made nicer and better.   Among the less obvious, many of the back-end scripts are being redone to provide a better, faster experience, hopefully allowing shots to occur even in those crazy all-out eight-ship fragfests.
