Wasn't there actually a Star Wars starfighter combat game in the works called Attack Squadrons which got cancelled by disney?

Anyone know why it was cancelled? Other than the fact it was browser-based and probably garbage. It apparently hit Beta though

I remember this, I even tried to subscribe to the beta, unfortunately they never said why they cancelled it though things were still very much in flux regarding how Disney wanted to handle the videogame branch of Star Wars so who knows?

The FRED Workshop / FRED Easter Egg?
« Last post by Erebus Alpha on May 22, 2018, 05:52:11 pm »
So, I'm renaming ships, and placing more ships in FRED, because who doesn't like their missions full of spaceships?

Suddenly, I have a Gef shuttle named "U.R.A. Moron 1" !!! :lol:

Did I blunder into some awful mission design sin/easter egg?

I decided to use SEXP's to set the player's sensor subsystem health to 10, when the necessary conditions were met, instead of generating a weapon. With sensors at 10%, you can sometimes manage to target stuff, but not for very long. And it nicely breaks missile lock.

But if you guys could make EMP that doesn't screw up dialogue, that would be awesome! And I would absolutely use that new feature! The only thing I would have to do in my missions is change the set-subsystem-health SEXP or whatever, back to generate-weapon.

This is probably the best Star Wars film I've seen in a theater :cool:

How many of the SW films have you seen in a theater?

If the effect is reproducible in orbit (interacting with the Earth magnetic field there) than it could still be a handy thing for satellites in LEO to MEO orbits.

I don't know if it's part of a promotion or what, but I've never noticed it before. There's some game for free on GOG called Sunrider: Mask of Arcadius, which appears to be some sort of turn based game set in space with anime characters.

https://www.gog.com/game/sunrider_mask_of_arcadius

It only has two reviews, both put there today, and 13 ratings, so maybe it only got put on GOG today.

So, in other words, the EM drive is actually ... an EM drive.
