The concept was "not all of your eggs in one basket".  The Golgotha class was designed to counter the Sathanas...but not typically as a single ship but in a small group.  If a Sathanas fleet were to invade a star system for instance, a group of 3 Golgotha class ships would sit just outside of the Sathanas' range, and blast them as they came through (basically one by one).

The Meson cannon, although powerful, will not fell a Sathanas in a single typical burst.  The weapon can be stretched to incredible destructive limits (upto the levels of the Shivan weapons) but at incredible cost to the vessel firing it.  In terms of the fiction of the story, a Golgotha class firing a prolonged Meson beam is just as likely to blow itself up as it is to blow up its target.

Unlike some campaigns that have come and gone...there are no super ships in BWO. The Golgotha class is as "realistic" as possible.

There can't be too many of them though; it's gone from prototype to production version far too rapidly as it is.

*sigh* If shinemaps worked with ATI cards I'd be showing off some really nice new screens ;)

That's actually the main reason there haven't been a ton of new screenshot updates. Ever since shinemaps stopped working with ATI cards, it hasn't generally looked good enough to take them.

This mission though I just had to take shots of to be a tease :)

As it is, you're stuck with shots like this:

Revert to cat 4.4's or use OGL, and shinemaps will work just fine on an ATi Card. ;)

TNT2 at maximum.

Mipmapping
32bit
Glowmaps
jpeg/tga
Specular

4 fps so I couldn't keep a still shot.







Also I forgot to mention I don't have any mv_packs, so that's without them (I have LS's textures though).

Your computer = w1n.

Perhaps.

It could be the scourge of space, the GTD Jack Thompson though... (since we renamed the Golgotha the Jack Sparrow and other ship the Jack O'Neill if you paid attention to earlier updates)

There goes the SJ Ronald Reagan then...

Too bad it won't recall destroying Capella anymore...

...we were going to add in Shivans in BWO just for that... :sigh:
