Be careful or you will end up in the "belly of the beast".

The trick is to go inside the ship.

This is not regular unit by any means. TransJovians actually never developed their dedicated destroyer class relying on lots of smaller ships instead. Basileus is a ship of special purpose. It was never designed by regular, TransJovian navy.

Ok so there is a spinoff planned? I just remember about there being something additional in regards to campaigns, just not the context. Personally I think it would be really cool to see first contact with the GTVA from the EA's perspective. As EA ships pour into Delta Serpentis and capture the sol gate.

Also is that the Jovian destroyer? They seem to have a very distinct design philosophy.

I also look forward to it. However I'm handicapped by being an ocean away.

While no help now, and although it can't help with the time difference, at least as far as latency is concerned, Starlink should eventually provide a good solution to international gaming once it's up and running:

Some time ago i think there was talk about a secondary campaign of sorts where you played as an EA pilot on sol. Is this something that's still happening?
Nothing like this exist... But it's nice idea we can mix with actual spin-off campaign we have planned.

BTW:
I promised something big, didn't I :D ? Featuring tons of VLS tubes and more. Let's play a game! Find the hangarbay!

Something something river in Egypt something something sunk cost fallacy.

This has neither to do with denial nor with sunk cost.

I find Anthem to be a fascinating object lesson - you know, something you study to help develop your own ideas, both in terms of what to do and what not to do. For that it is important to treat the game on its own terms, not as the game "I want to be" or "I deserve to be".

And of course there is much I like about it and I got a kick out of finalizing my builds, but none of it will keep me from going away. I recently only got back because of the PTS and having a look at the Catacylsm-event and I will stay for it implementation (to compare it to the PTS).

Blue Planet / Re: I had a vaguely BP themed psychotic episode

My Mother once told me of a story of when she was a kid (would have been in the late 1950's I think), when a serious illness was going around the town where she grew up, and she got it.  While feverish, she had a dream where she was bargaining with Satan for the soul of one of her uncles.  She obviously survived, but when she returned to school she began hearing voices telling her to do things.  She did her best to ignore the voices, and eventually they went away.

My mother is a religious person (now a retired clergy herself), but she always tries to find the middle ground between religion and science.  She recognizes that the fever probably left her mind a bit weak, allowing for the brief and minor episode to manifest itself, but she also believes that Satan uses open doors like that to spread into the minds of the vulnerable.  I can't say that I entirely disagree with her, but I also wouldn't support the conclusion that anyone experiencing schizophrenia is being invaded by Satan.  Pills help the mind in a medical way, but therapy helps in a functional way, and the support of religion (when not being misused) could be argued as being like therapy with a faith element.

I'm not trying to stir up a religion VS. science debate, or detract from the theme of this thread.  I just felt like sharing this story.
