Am I the only one?
Am I the only one with a mod-heavy campaign that doesn't feature at least one supership/weapon/fighter?

I swear I must be.

Does the Descent mega missile ( Fire and forget -heat seeking-, fast, and can shot down a fenris in one or two shots) is considered as a super weapon (for a fighter I mean)?

Technically I don't have a MOD yet, but the one that i'm shooting for wont have any super/anything. I really think that its kind of a cheap way to make a campaign interesting by including eye-candy and big zot, instead of having really interesting and challenging missions. Twilight didn't have anything like that as I recall from the mission testing I did, but did have VERY complex and challenging missions, which is much more interesting to me than the idea that the GTVA can suddenly pull a weapon with 4 times the power of a BFRed out of their butts =P
Which is not to say that BFGold isn't a cool weapon, or to disrespect the abilities and talents of the people who are doing the work. The Phobos for example is a really l33t job of modelling and I wish I could pull off something that spiffy. But I'd have a lil more respect if that pretty gold color was going along with a beam weapon that made some kind of sense for the GTVA to have. Smack that pretty beam on a new TSlash with slightly better damage and quicker recharge and it'll be just as cool to look at for the players without completely destroying game balance.
If it aint broke, break it!

Ahh......a campaigner after my own heart.  

You'll notice that the screenshots with the new beams up on the R2NT site are all on Deimos or Aeolus ships.

Well, I believe that using only new, beautiful and powerful ships and weapons on a campaign and loosing focus on the storyline and missions will surely result in a poor result.

Though I kinda started the super-juggernaut (though I don't like the term) business, I took measures to assure proper balance and a good challenge for the player on the missions, while using a whole range of new effects to boost the player's experience. And in my opinion, that's what makes a good campaign: good balance among storyline, playability, and visuals.

Just combine interesting and challenging missions with cool new technology.   I can't wait to dogfight along the hull of the finished Gigas.

Well I have about 4/5 super ships in my campaign of Juggernaught and higher.

I make sure that my ships can be beaten. The Gigas isn't invincible but if it gets to fire first...  
Oh yeah and you WILL dogfight along the Gigas. Just don't go anywhere near the front of it.

the thing i found about FS2 is it almost encourages ther ships to get larger and larger and larger.

For a start - thats what makes the shivans so scary, the fact that as of the end of the second invasion they don't know if the lucifer was just a light scout, the sathanas fleet was a small fringe battlegroup etc.

imagine shivans flying around in planet-sized dyson spheres or something.

BTW - did anyone think of a freespace2 RTS?
