Formerly known as Admiral_Jin-Ki-Kim. I'm a game and mod enthusiast, I enjoy science fiction greatly, but any deep, immersive universe with an immense back story is my cup of tea. Example: ME Universe.
Surkesh, this is Manovai team. Stealth Drive schematics obtained. Reaper IFF downloaded. 3rd infiltration regiment RTB.
FW from Dr. Solus:
If Shepard is killed chances of galactic unification 0.00002%.
Shepard indoctrination/defection [inhalation] problematic.
I gotta say, it's been a bit since I popped in, and I'm glad you are all sticking with it. I'll wait as long as I have to.
Also, I really like the music you guys are using for your trailers. :)
FW from Dr Solus:
Scenario unlikely. Probably stolen from Korlus or other ship graveyard and retrofitted.
If eclipse or blue suns, Betrayal from within distinct possibility. Sabotage, misinformation, traps: auto turrets, mines...Nuclear mines (Bloodpack like nukes).
I believe Technical Specialist Vakarian may be able to help you, Admiral Zorah.
It's a clever way for Bioware to both serve their community and save money. Well done Bioware, well done.
Regarding the fall of humanity, the reapers actually bypassed the sixth and seventh fleets and rushed for Arcturus. Upon arriving, they decimated the fleets stationed to defend Arcturus station and jumped their primary force through the relay. Then they did a number on the First, Third and Fifth fleets, before Admiral Hackett ordered a full retreat sacrificing the second.
Prior to the reaper invastion of 2186, I estimate the Systems Alliance Navy had similar strength to a that of the Batarian navy if not greater. The council regards the Alliance as a "sleeping giant," as, in addition to a formidable military, they have incredible industrial and economic might not to mention potential draftees. Around 3% of all humans enlist and the Alliance Military is a volunteer force.
As for the Batarians, their military was mighty, but with no allies and Karshan's poor responses, their loss was inevitable. The initial "we're under attack," was replaced by "Remain calm, Karshan is fine. We deny the existence of reapers/giant space cuttlefis--Transmission lost--
I almost want to say give "those people" in the community a version where it includes the ship, add a major disclaimer, and let them learn their lesson as their game crashes again and again. Their fault for not reading the disclaimer/install info.
Unfortunately, the likely result would be hate mail...April fools joke?
Close the blast doors! Close the blast doors!...Open the blast doors! Open the blast doors!
@Set: I appreciate so much that this mod is turning out so well. Regarding my salarian quip, I understand. There is very little that I have found regarding their ship designs. I just want to take a moment to say thank you to the entire team. You have worked very hard, and it shows. Take pride, for you have held the line!
A few years have passed. Andross has again invaded the Lylat system. General Pepper has turned to a new Star Fox team headed by Fox McCloud to save Corneria and to free the Lylat system once again.
Sorry, couldn't resist. Excellent work as usual. :)
Personal Log 561:
The Human, Turian and Asari fleets have all entered battle; the Batarian remnants and even the Quarian fleet are fighting for the Council! So where is the Salarian fleet? With no word from Surkesh, Mannovai, Aegohr, or Jaëto I fear the worst.
I think it's safe to say that, we of the United States stand with our friends in France as well. As the authorities work to bring those responsible to justice, I feel the best response is defiance. Speaking out against such acts, gathering to honor those who have been lost instead of cowering in our homes, even just living our lives as normal...Yeah, that's the best revenge I can think of. So, I say, "I am Charlie."
I feel you, I haven't even had time to test the latest pre alpha release! I mean, Hackett has sent me requests to Race Wars and I'm like, "Sry, haven't had time to test it myself yet!" School, man. School, my book, and my girlfriend. I'll test it this weekend, I made time!
On another note, I'm curious about work on the new dreadnoughts for the Salarian Union? The brand new ones slated for the First fleet?
If I could, I would have personally contributed the 45,000 (or a even the full 100,000!) pounds needed to finish the funding for Flagship...Even with the exchange rate from the USA! Flagship is an idea I have wanted realized ever since I first picked up Star Trek Bridge Commander a decade ago. I'm glad you guys are sticking with it, and if there's anything I can do, even just spreading the word, I'll do it.
Wishing you all well,
Whoops, got signed out by accident. Anyway, when watching the kickstarter trailer, I was thinking: this is Pre-Alpha assets??? Wow!
Reminds me a bit of the NX-01. I very much like!
As does the Salarian Union. Unfortunately, classes start tomorrow, so I cannot assist yet. :(
3rd Infiltration Regiment stands ready, Admiral. As we say in STG, "Always expect trouble. Failing that, make trouble for someone else."
Will there be Salarian Ships? If so, you bet your olfactory filters!
Hand to hand? With standard weapons? And does the Krogan have Biotics? ME Shields do squat against energy weapons, but Klingons don't use shields so assault rifle fire will kill it. Hunter kills both with fusion cannon especially fusion beam.
Hunter could win in hand to hand, but a batleth is scary...omniblade weapons could pierce hunter armor, maybe...idk.
If it's Wrex, I think he could kill either, but not 100% of the time. Depends.
Now, Wrex vs. Worf, that's a fight I'd pay to see!
I think it looks beautiful!
This is looking good, Urban Logic. The fact that we've been forced to flee our ancestral homeworld intrigues me. Una Salus Victis Nullam Sperare Salutem. The one hope of the doomed is not to hope for safety.
Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be rather Freespace-ish during fighter combat...assuming flying is included in the final product. For those of you who don't know, Descent: Freespace The Great War and Freespace 2 are two very good space flight sims of the late 90's.
Good work, Set. Hold the Line!
So, I must ask...
It's been quite some time since we saw anything Salarian. What is the latest on the Salarian Fleet? Will our Stealth Capable Dreadnoughts with Reaper IFF make it out of dry dock or be destroyed during construction?
All we hear in STG is suspicious silence...
Keep up the good work, DotR!
I think I saw somewhere it would be a couple years (at least) before open beta.
I've waited ten years for a game of this concept. I can wait another four or five. A fully 3D, space based, empire building, RTS played from the bridge of your flagship? It's like that galaxy map mod for Star Trek Bridge Commander only a dedicated game and not an unstable mod. Yeah. I can wait.
*Picks up jaw from floor* Please excuse me while I get a mop for all the drool...
Don't you love it when your internet fails for a bit and then you come back to beautiful stuff like this?
Halo: a superstitious name given to the ring shaped fortress worlds by the San 'Shyuum who believe these constructs the key to their builder's "Ascension." Analysis indicates these devices are super weapons capable of exterminating all organic life within a radius of several thousands of light years. Possible modifications for use against Reaper forces.
I can see that. However, it is worth noting that this is Arcturus Station as shown in official Mass Effect media. I know for certain it's in Mass Effect: Evolution. Probably in an art book as well.
It looks like the Reverent, but sounds (and fires) like the Mattock???
And the "shuriken?" it sounds right, but has the model of a Predator???
Otherwise, I approve. Just wanted to point out that the weapons aren't quite right. Then again, I am a ME Fanboy...
Two MAC shots from frigates = 50% shield damage only? If you want to survive, you need at least 4 shots just to take down the shields...
I actually bought the expansion Entrenchment because of this mod too.
