[EVENT] Upside Down Day!

So, “Homeworld turn stuff upside down day” 2017 has arrived (almost)!

Post all your upside-down stuff here!

To get us started, here is a quiz. Can you tell which one is the right way up (without cheating?):

1) Vaygr Probe:

ANSWER Easy. Number 2 is the right way up

2) Karos Graveyard Autogun:

ANSWER Still easy. Number 2 is the right way up

3) Crate:

ANSWER Number 2 is the right way up

4) Homeworld 2 “bigred” derelict:

ANSWER The engine section is the key. Number 2 is the right way up

What? This is too easy? Ok, try these…

5) Salvage Container:

ANSWER Number 1 is the right way up (the "76" is the clue...)

6) Cryo Tray:

ANSWER Number 2 is the right way up

7) Vaygr Hyperspace Gate:

ANSWER Ok, this was quite cruel! Number 2 is the right way up... I had to double check, but its true!

Same score here. And I should have know the Gate, I had it opened quite recently.

  • I wasn’t sure about 4, so I cheated on that one.
  • The salvage container was tricky, and I got that wrong.
  • Cryo tray was easy.
  • Vaygr HS gate, I got wrong.
  • Chimera could honestly have gone either way… Chose the wrong way though…
  • Scaffold #2 just felt wrong.

That was an impressively challenging lineup! Questions one and two did not prepare me for how hard it got from there. I guessed right on the crate, bigred, salvage container, but wrong on chimera and the gate. Everything else I was confidently right about. Though honestly I wavered a bit on the scaffold.

So in the spirit of this clever challenge, I submit my own, super-stinkin’ difficult quiz question:

#11) Assault Cruiser

ANSWER

Shockingly, #1 is right-side-up. I even checked. Not really but still.

Best of luck to you all! You’re gonna need it.

Having just recently learned of this hallowed day I didn’t have any sort of quiz prepared, but I did manage to put together some images of observance. Unfortunately I’ll be quite busy tomorrow, so here they are a bit early.

Nice! The stealth bomber looks like it might work upside down. The others work a bit less well.

Some of the pics look like they even work better up side down. Pouk’s defender and MBC look really cool that way. The defender looks even more alien.

It looks like a robo-swan-lobster to me. :slight_smile:

You’re too used to looking at ships that sag in the middle :smiley:

I’m enjoying slightly the disorienting nature of this. Deserts of the Upside-Down Planet.
