Re: Inferno: Nostos Discussion
Well the entire campaign is in Terran space, so it's not like the Vasudans are going to through every ship class out there.

No and no. Sadly the Vasudans are at a bare minimum when it comes to capships at least.
Is this because of in-universe reasons, or because since they don't appear in the first release there's no need to make all those classes now?

I mean in general, not just in the campaign. Besides, the campaign is bound to leave Terran space at some point in future releases (if any), right?

This mostly. We'll be adding a few more Vasudan ships in the 2nd release like the carrier and flagship, though they will only have a fraction of the Terran fleet since we don't require that many Vasudan ships for the campaign.

It makes sense I guess: You're playing as a Terran in a Terran navy fighting another Terran faction, so the ships you fly, as well as the majority of your allies and enemies, will be Terran (not counting the Shivans of course).

Can we know the name of your home ship for the campaign? Will it be the same as INFR1?

Right now we are doing internal testing on the first 10 missions, we may do an outside beta in the future but not at this time.

Unless officer exchange and all that. But that is apparently not planned.

Re: Inferno: Nostos Discussion
Hey, I saw some dumb split posts down there, and I just want to reiterate to everyone: it is the BP team's position that Inferno is awesome and that we'll do anything we can to help and support them. Like so many projects in this community, BP would not exist without the generosity of Inferno.

Mods are long, difficult, arduous things to make, and even if I personally haven't been able to do everything I'd like for the Inf team, I think people need to be patient and supportive. It'll come round when it comes.

Great! Flying alien craft is part of the fun of campaigns like FS2, Derelict, Warzone, and AoA (In my opinion), so I'll be looking forward to seeing what the Vasudans have developed.

Re: Inferno: Nostos Discussion
Did those secondary antiship weapons for capships (other than beams) and bombers (when they ran out of bombs) made it in? For example, the EA had railguns.
I remember reading that every race had their own weapon for that.

Is the Oracle the same ship one was based on in the original Inferno release or was it the Warlock carrier Independence?

The Vasudans have their own set of capship weapons except for the Plasma anti-warship ones. The weapons we had for the Vasudans there weren't very good, so we dropped those. The Vasudans have an energy based flak and far better AAA beams than the Terrans. The Vasudan bombers have beams instead of a plasma cannon system however.

No it's a new ship.

TOTALLY different?  :eek2:

Well, it wouldn't be Inferno if it didn't go overboard trying to be over-the-top in the excessive department.  :lol:

Re: Inferno: Nostos Discussion
Well as an example

Terran Mihos:
Subach HL-12, Subach SD-14, Prometheus, Vulcan
Shocker, Hurricane, Shadow, Stiletto III, Hornet M

Vasudan Mihos:
Haptekh, Karotep, Nakhyet
Khanil, Hafran, Namket

Better fighters have more weapons that those for both races. The Vasudans have less overall though since its not a major focus for the campaign.

Cool! You actually made Multiple Subach upgrades?  :D

The Mihos, I assume, is an entry-level fighter used (in different variants) by both species?
The old Mihos was a Rogue Vasudan Fighter based on the Ulysses, I think.
