It'll be whatever it will be.

I did put in the request though that if the hole is made circular, that the glowy bit/girder stuff around it remain hexagonal, as it's the glowing hexagon part that is really iconic in the appearance.

Awesome! I'm hoping for a landing bay you can fly into and land. Also docking pylons that don't look like an elf hat. :yes:

Definitely agreed, no t mention that since the hole is a repair bay (see the jotunhiem ani on the last mission of ST, the command briefing), a circle would be a better shape than a hexagon for this.

Re: Arcadia HTL (It's gonna happen!)
Uh.. that ANI just calls it a "Central Dock Bay".

But I have not ruled out the possibility of a circle. IF it is a circle, the FEEL of the hexagon MUST remain. Zacam's suggestion has some merit, so I'll be playing around with it to find what works.

Re: Arcadia HTL (It's gonna happen!)
I was always under the impression it was hexagonal because the artificial gravity for a circle to pull evenly on all sides would be a logistical nightmare :P

Re: Arcadia HTL (It's gonna happen!)
I think that it should be a hexagon, of exactly the same size and position (absolute and relative, but especially absolute) as the original one. Just too many campaigns depend on ships being inside the ring, not to mention addons used by INFA.

Re: Arcadia HTL (It's gonna happen!)
I don't think HTLs of canon ships should have to be modeled because of the way they were used in old, decrepit campaigns.


Not to mention that just because the hole is cylindrical doesn't mean that the addons won't fit.

Re: Arcadia HTL (It's gonna happen!)
Wow, time really passes quick, last time I checked, Vassago's Dirge was a brand new campaign, recommended by almost everybody out here. Now it's old and decrepit (and I'm 90% certain that it has an Arcadia with something placed inside the hole).
I know that it'd be technically possible to fit a hexagonal plug on the INFA addons into a circular hole (that new technology really does wonders...  :)), but I think that it could cause potential problems.

Re: Arcadia HTL (It's gonna happen!)
First off, Vassago's Dirge does NOT use anything like the Arcadia addons in the circle at all, it doesn't have anything that'd need a hexagonal hole. Did you even play it?

And, using INFA, I can tell that a circular hole wouldn't cause any problems there.

Re: Arcadia HTL (It's gonna happen!)
I'm not saying it uses addons, but it places a ship in the middle. If you'll mess with the shape too much (though it's more of the case of absolute position mattering more than shape), you'll end up with ship parts inside the wall.
Maybe it won't cause problems with current INFA release, but you're not in it's team, so you don't know what they're planning (and really, do you want to delay their release even further?).
