Well, technically you're correct - but that doesn't really change all that much - I still want explosions, and I'm still not getting them.

Oh, and since you guys wont newsify this...;)

From mere appearences, those big ships appear to be more powerful than an FS1 era Orion destroyer.
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

Are those stars part of a skybox or generated by freespace.
If I can get freespace to make that many, I want to know how!

Very nice. The 158th looks much better under SCP than vanilla FS2... I think that is a skybox, no?
Long time ago, you see, there was this thing called the VBB and... oh, nevermind.

They look like skyboxes, but you should in theory be able to change the amount of stars in a mission with notepad.

You don't have to use Notepad.  You can adjust it on a slider under the Background Editor, in the lower-right hand corner of the dialog box.

And no, those destroyers aren't more powerful than an Orion.  Those look like Kievs, from here.  Six main guns, plus smaller turrets, and 48 fighters (see the Tech Room on our site).  The EAD Moscow is very similar to the Kiev (same design, I believe).

Kievs are pre-subspace era vessels, their weapons capabilities are minimalistic by FS1 standards.  As for the Moscow, think Kiev with beefed up armor and heavier weapons ;)

True, but I think he means that you need notepad to get the number above the 2000 allowed by the slider.

I didn't think they were that weak.  Wow.

And of course, an FS2 cruiser, particularly an Aeolus, could eat one for breakfast.  I say an Aeolus because it's got a better change against any fighters the destroyer might field.

The stars are all part of the skyboxes, and yes these screenshots are all of missions using skyboxes.

I think it's time for a demonstration of the somewhat limited firepower of the Kiev and also an explosion for Black Wolf. ;)

Lots and lots of plasma cannons...

IIRC, it's possible for a fighter to take one of those destroyers out (as in POOF, no more ship) just by shooting at it, and not for all that long, either.

I must say that it is one of the cooler looking ships I've seen. I'm a sucker for those wing-things on the sides.
