Minor unrelated question: Could one make a cannon fire directly away from the crosshair in the current game?
Not without a decent font choice, I won't! :P
Also, are you assuming I was taking him at face value?
While I agree with Zeke, I could honestly stand a few less streams and some more updates, assuming the apparent drop in the latter's regularity can be attributed to them.
Well, if they really wanted a mass-sweeper kind of AA unit, couldn't they up the AoE radius? Though, the way it is in some games where they all seem to fly inside each other is kind of silly.
Also, these larger formations also mean it should be harder for them to find an opening in the enemy's defences they can safely exploit.
Smartarse. :P But seriously, a gatling that doesn't gattle at that scale looks like a minor oversight.
Did that mech have a stationary gattling gun, perchance?
Wouldn't Wotans benefit from it too much, though?
I was gonna ask about the potential future challengers, before I realised they're basically Leos.
He has a point, children. A dug in armour position really isn't THAT big of a concept. See also CWC, Sudden Strike/Blitzkrieg, Real-*******-Life, Company of Heroes, more or less, and if I don't stop typing now, I'll end up as a crumbled, cobweb ridden skeleton before I stop.
Depending on how you intend to do them, they could just be a really shiny version of a laser. (It is c, after all). Though, a glittering laser would probably mean it's going through a cloud of shiny debris.
But also Borderlands and Brothers in Arms, and I don't remember hearing much **** over those two.
Depends on how long it'll be in development, I guess.
Doubt the protection it offers is as good against small arms and shrapnel, though. And that's a bad thing.
And if they can see anything from where they're sitting, they already ****** up.
Niiiiiiiice! Always love a bit of fluff.
And with "A bit," I mean "Huge ******* boatloads that need their own series of novels."
Aaand I've just learned of the official HD remake of the game. I don't know whether I should worship you, or hate your guts with a passion.
Yeah, they are still spread out over the decade since the game out, and they're either not that much younger than the game, or simply on a different scale.
Star Wolves, for example, seems relatively comparable, from memory, but, pretty small. On the other hand, if Sword of The Stars had similar graphics, the late game loading times would be unplayable.
Of course, there's a certain reason I can only think of these two at the moment.
There's really not a lot of space rts' to compare to, though.
Iiiiiinteresting. So, does this make blackout nodes and sensor towers history, or do you get both?
Also, the other modes do not provide the map, I take it?
Hm...hiding infantry squads in immobile container APCs, anyone?
So, I take that, at this point, the ships are, thoroughly, burnt?
More sparse and transparent at first, perhaps?
Okay, you have my complete attention at this point, so I have to ask: What are the chances of this game popping up on GoG in the future?
I kind of prefer it to Steam because of having to run it through the client, and ended up a bit ****** at myself when I rushed into buying stuff there, only to have it pop up at the other place on release.
D4, with the B3 ramp.

Yeah, solid fuel doesn't burn all that smoothly, so the Soyuz and Apollo win it over on the comfort side. Makes me wonder what kind of a ride an Ares would've been, come to think of it.
I'm practically certain it has to do with atmospheric interference, rather the actual power of the engine, and if you get it in a vacuum, it'd mean part of your fuel (or ox) isn't combusting, and when it's on a budget, that's kind of bad. The fuel tank still has a sub-orbital trajectory, or at least, an atmospheric one, and the sun is basically a nuclear explosion with an atmosphere. Scale's completely different.
I do damn wish I dug up anything conclusive. It's not like I care that much. If I couldn't suspend my disbelief over some cool engine plumes*, I'd have been forced to stop most of my gaming and TV as soon as I had a basic understanding of physics. *Yours probably some sort of nuclear propulsion anyway, and I'm guessing those would work differently again.
Mine's the flag. Had a classmate who said it was waving. Responding to my question about her actually watching the video with an unsurprising "No."
Given the circumstances, he was surprisingly calm up until the guy got far too close. I'd have decked him in about half a minute.
Altitude I got for the SRB is 44.5km, so just under halfway there, going by altitude. Orbital insertion is finished using liquid fuel, and I doubt that the videos showed the fuel tank detaching since the boosters go at 165 seconds* and the tank goes at 8 minutes, and by that point, the thing is definitely over the horizon.
*Grumblegrubmle, you made me look up the SPESS SHATTLE! on the Wiki.
What I did find was some talk over the Moon landing hoaxers complaining over a lack of plume on the LM (I was wondering where I heard it for the first time), and the conversation expanded onto the Shuttle's engines and OMS being completely transparent, with the exception of the latter's ignition(s) because of imperfect fuel ratios at the very start.
If I remember correctly, the flame goes completely dark and transparent once you're actually out of the atmosphere.
Not trying to rain on any parades, just a little tidbit I find interesting.
