2325 sounds good to me as well.

Amon_Re, what ARE you doing? :wtf: Sounds like you're trying to create another 14 Year War all by yourself.

I wouldn't go that far Goober ;)

But the idea i have seems to be getting bigger & bigger all the time, originally i planned for a timeframe of 6 months > 1 year, but well, seems it'll be more like 8 years now ;)

However, you guys don't need to worry, i won't interfere with your timeline :)

Cheers,

My current specs for the Angel Scout:

Manufacturer: Han-Ronald Corp
Gun banks: 2
Missile Banks: 1
Length: 16M

Max velocity: 55
Afterburner Max velocity: 115

Sounds good?

That is to slow for a scout.

The Valkyrie is based on the Angel Scout, the angel scout had 2 engines, the valk has 4.

The top velocity for the Valkyrie is 85, Afterburner velocity is 165.

I think that considering the lesser engines those speeds i said were reasonable.

Provide me with an argument to make the Angel faster & i will :)

LOL :)

Well, if you don't like the speeds, just say other numbers then :) but it should be slower then the Valk

Not necessarily...well probably, but not to that degree - I say it should have a speed around 70 at least.
The Angel hadn't had the armour or the weaponry that the Valkyre posses, so it was much lighter, so even with two engines it should have been quite speedy.
It was a scout not a fighter or an interceptor. It was scouting not hunting.

Given it's age, I'd say 70 tops.

The Angel has 1 gun bank, 1 missile bank. Those guns on the wings are the only guns it has. The Valkyrie has two "hard-points". And the Valkyrie has "Two additional Primary Hard-points" (from the briefing it was introduced in)

Thx for all the replies, i'll change the speeds & hitpoints then.

One more question, does anyone know how old the Appolo was when FS1 started? What about bombers & other chips? What cap ships would already have been designed in 2325?

2325...I'm not sure if the Orion was around yet. You'l have the Sagittarius carrier, the Reliant destroyer, a couple of cruisers and a frigate. But you'll have to wait until the first TVWP release to get at them. :D

Well, at this rate, never.


We need a modeler to do a few odd jobs (texturing, some turreting, and I think one fighter). Loads of people want to play it, but nobody will help...


So, unless we get a modeler, your campaign's screwed also...


sorry.

Amon_Re, it sounds like you want to know the entire ship history of the T-V War before we've even thought about it.  Have a little patience. :) What is your project going to be that you need to know all this stuff?

Hey, after the ships details i'll be nagging you guys about the politics of the FS universe, better be prepared ;)

I'll PM you a draft of the story outline, it's a little outdated, but should give you an idea of what i'm toying with here.

Since the Angel might be a bit older than the Apollo (which had a top speed of 60 at default engine power compared to the Ulysses's 70), I'd say the Angel should have a top speed of 70 at default power and 85 at max power compared to the Valk's 85 and 100.

Check out the FSURP and their Terran-Vasudan War timeline. The Orion was there already.

Besides - we are using that timeline for our campaign. :)
