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.
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?
I am trying to be respectful here, and I apologize that I have offended you.
I feel you do not respect our points of view. I feel you hear but do not listen. The first paragraph of my previous post and the first line of the next paragraph, I said that I completely respect and value the point you made. You're right. They are not "obligated" to continue with their rapid updates. With updates throughout the previous couple years, we simply have grown to expect that.
My problem is not with the point you make. My problem is with your presentation of your point as the only way it should work. That it is the right way. Your opinion is valid. So is ours.
Addendum: Hackett, if I respond again to something like this, would you kindly have Shepard punch me in my cloaca?
Onytoytoy, from the comments I have seen that are still visible, I can understand the point you appear to be attempting to make. It is easy to hyperfocus and forget to take care of other necessities such as eating when playing ME 1 for the first time in 2008.
I understand this. I have a tendency to hyperfocus myself. The issue is as follows. When any group, for profit or otherwise, states that they have a project going, and do so publicly, they accept responsibility to keep their fan/customer base informed of their progress. I understand that with a project like this, people have things that come up. That said, there is the unspoken expectation that we be updated on progress. This can be as simple as saying, "Sorry guys, we're doing what we can, but things are slow going right now." While I get that different teams do things differently, this is a project that has a history of constantly updating once every month. Usually more.
Now, with respect, the way you are choosing to state your point is, at best, ineffective and unhelpful, and at worst, disrespectful and distasteful. It would appear that you hear, but you do not listen. Hackett and Kyle have said they are only looking for a minor situation report. This is hardly an unreasonable request. You continue to drill your own point modifying your words based on the previous posts. Clearly, you hear. You do not listen enough to say, "you have a good point," or "while that is valid, I simply disagree." You appear to be reading enough to write an argument and not enough to risk ceding one.
Kyle and Hackett and I have been supporters of this mod for a while. We want this mod to succeed.
If you are under the age of 18, I can understand as when I was 16, I posted some rather thoughtless stuff on SotP and got chewed out by Canada. Regardless, I ask that you chose to attack an argument and not a person.
This has a loose relation to ME verse, but I thought it was worth noting that Mass Accelerators could enter field deployment with the US armed forces soon.
Then I suggest you volunteer your scripting skills Vas_Rayya.
I do like the reaper pod idea, myself. I'd help with coding and modeling, but I don't know Java from Python, and toying with gmax for 18 hours doesn't count.
Just giving an example. Of course, our Geth Overlord isn't susceptible to organic illnesses.
I have a habit of making poor jokes in poor taste...
So, I'm assuming that since it's summer, you guys are busy irl. I'm hoping it's a good busy (I'm working and making money) and not a bad busy (really sick with Kepral's Syndrome).
You're welcome. Although, so far, I've had mixed results. Some of my friends who are more fantisy oriented are a little sick of hearing the words "flag" and "ship" in the same sentence. ^^
*Watches the exchange and subsequent brawl from STG base on Surkesh. Laughs for six minutes and posts the video on the extranet.
@Victus: I suggest checking your personal guard for bugs next time, Primarch.
I have been waiting for this concept to become reality for 12 years! Ever since ST BC, I have wanted a game of this nature! I'm so excited! Spreading the word!
Unfortunately, there seem to be scarce updates across the board. On the plus side, Steam Summer Sale.
I'm honestly on the fence with this one. I like that the voice sounds like Laskey's, and I also agree that it sounds...Arcadey...My personally suggestion is the lines themselves. I don't think Laskey would sound so...optimistic or school-boyish. If the lines are spoken like laskey, but more seasoned, serious, and less over eager like a gung-ho green recruit never seen combat, that might be a good compromise?
That's just my two bits though.
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.
Off topic: So, I recently became aware of this indie game in development called Flagship, and after watching the teaser trailer, I thought the voices over the comm sounded Quarian.
