The first one shouldn't be that difficult.

don't know if it's beem mentioned before but how about a Rianbow Six stylee "apply load out to team" affair, on the load out screen.
It's on the to-do list.

FS menu screens run a little sloppy on my PC at the higher res. and all that draggin' and droppin' is a pain in the ass.

Hmmmm... That's odd Phreak, cos mine don't seem to do it, and believe me, in this situation, I would notice if they did! Maybe I'll try turning up the AI level a tad and see if that helps :)

I'm sure this is a silly question, but I gotta know... will they work with missiles that are supposed to be Dumbfire, like the Tempest  because that's the setup I'm using?

Ok, I cranked up the AI to General and they started using them, so that's solved that problem, but at Captain, they still won't.

Well, I guess I would like:

- much cooler explosions/fireworks, with lots of particles spewed... also, it would be cool if we could define this stuff in a ships tbl...
- Rotating barrels...
Already implemented.

Can't think of anything else right now... I'll post when I come with something up...

Yeah, I know you were waiting for a very nice sig, in which I was quoting some very famous scientist or philosopher... guess what?!? I wont indulge you...

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?

Oh, also:

- muzzleflashes like in Starlancer... I gusee this could be quite easy if you use the thruster render code...

- being able to choose the type of thruster and thruster glow in the tbl of a ship... that would make easy to create new races with new glows, and most importantly, make the capships without high speed fighter thrusters...

I'd like to see an I-War style ORB for the radar, and an option to switch between it and the 'classic' FS2 radar.

"Rapidfire" weapons flag. This would give the weapons it's applied to the ability to override the AIs default accuracy setting, so that only factor influencing the ROF for that weapon is the firewait setting.

I would be interested in helping out with shadows.

Oh yes, if possible, could someone try that scaling function that Phreak suggested for HT&L? If it is just one line, it would be awesome :D

Great, I need to try this out. Can they use the Trebuchets against fighters and bombers, though? (the Trebuchet is after all an anti-bomber missile that just works particularly well against subsystems)

Sorry, didn't read your post right first time :)

Not sure about fighters, but I think they would use the against bombers :)

Yes, of course you can help with whatever you want, you know the DX8 code better than any of us. Besides, this is all a group effort anyway. I don't really care about credit so much as coding the stuff that I'd like to see myself. ;)

I think using Bob's fast ship trail as an after burner/boost effect would be real cool.
