Description

The Retro Nyx is a limited version of the original Nyx featuring the ship's old model, and original fighters, some of the stats are somewhat different than the Nyx (e.g. higher speed, higher total health, etc).

Interior

The interior, as the ship's name would expect, is the old model of the Nyx, there is not much to explain about the interior since it uses the old model.

Advantages

  • Relatively high acceleration, turn speed, and top speed for it's class.
  • Relatively high Cargo Hold (1000).
  • Extremely large death explosion can easily destroy all smaller ships in range (~5000 studs).
  • Somewhat high turret dps for it's class, at 201 turret dps.

Disadvantages

  • Somewhat lower cargo hold than its regular counterpart.
  • Players can easily swarm an undefended Retro Nyx.
  • Very large.
  • Very expensive, costing over 775k credits.
  • Struggles against smaller and faster ships.
  • Massive explosion size could result in harm to friendly ships.
