Firstly: What money? The game's free to play :p Seriously, I'll never understand how people can complain about something they won't have to pay for, and in this case haven't even tried yet. On account of it not being, you know, released.

Secondly: Incompetent artists? You realize that is a browser game, right? You can't expect models to be as detailed in a browser game as they will be in a game like Diaspora. Besides, some of them actually look quite good.

Crazy ship!



That's actually pretty impressive for a browser game...

Re: BSG Online announced - could this be a problem?
God I'm getting tired of this. Torc, we already had one split & lock due to people bashing BGO after being warned not to. Kindly stop, especially if you hold your ability to post dear. It will also help you not feel stupid when the game actually comes out.

As for it being a browser game, in this case the term can be a bit misleading. The browser is just a shell running a fully capable 3d engine. The art specs are what they are because it's a MMO; they need it to run smoothly on 95% of the machines out there. MMOs can look nice but if you think about it, never really have ground breaking, Crysis style art standards.

i just want to say that this developers don't catch the real spirit of the tv show... obviously they are serious people but i think they are ''incompetent'' regarding the show, not in the personal ability... however,sorry about that ,it will never happen anymore.

Re: BSG Online announced - could this be a problem?
I wanted to throw two more cents in here.  Due to no one else mentioning it, I thought I would supply some more information.

I am in on the closed Beta for the game.

It is not unlike 'Star Trek Online'.  Except you don't train crew for your ships (at least not that I have seen yet).  Less complex in general than STO.  But so is the technobable when comparing the two universes.

All in all the game is not bad given a couple of factors.  The fact that it is browser based hence can't really store stuff on your harddrive.  So it does have some limitations there but handles it quite well.  The learning curve is quite steep on some aspects.  Which for an MMO I do not care for personally. 

It is by no means designed to compete with anything remotely similar to this.

That would be like saying the 'X-Wing' franchise was competing with 'Star Wars: Rebellion'.  Two completely different styles of games catering to two completely different interest points for gamers.

If you are into MMO games you might want to give BGO a shot.  The expanded stuff that is not cannon definitely makes the game bigger and more to do.  The things that are removed from cannon ideas that I had no issues with them.  The still held the flavor of the universe quite well.  As do the "assignments" that you get for the game.

I hope that helps some.

That's actually a much nicer-looking attack fighter than the armed variants of the Raptor. Though it's probably lacking the Hind-like ability to land troops.

Re: BSG Online announced - could this be a problem?
Wonder what the heck that red line is.  Looks like some kind of laser.

While the ship does look more like an attack craft it just doesn't quite seem to fit the whole battlestar thing.  How the heck would you even land that on one?

For the attack role? Damn skippy. More of the Apache in its heritage and less of the H-60.

so more practical-looking.
Ahh.

Well, I like the look of a UH-60 with the rocket pods on it.

I think that if they took the raptor, and made it thinner and shorter, using an apache-like canopy design would give an attack craft that looks more BSG-like and more dedicated to the role.

And what FUBAR said:  How do you land it?

I agree. Glad I wasn't the only one who saw the Hind resemblance.

Unfortunately, I have to agree - kinda looks like a raptor and a type 9 shuttle had an illegitimate child.

If the 'uglied it up' it wouldn't be to bad.  Hunch up the cockpit so it looks like an AH-1 or AH-64, replace the nose with a big honkin' TADS.  Get rid of the rear doors maybe change the wings a little and replace the pea shooters with a under the nose chain gun.
