All right, Derek Smart. First of all, let me just say this is some constructive criticism (sp?). First of all, insulting us is only going to make us madder. You are not going to get anywhere by insulting us back. Second, you cannot remove the beam cannons from FS3, if you make it. They play a big role in the FS2 game. How do you expect capital ships to die? Continuous bombardment for five hours by laser turrets? No, I don't think so. Third, what's the point of designing ships from the inside and out? Will there be a mission where you must locate the fighterbay (sarcastic remark)? Next, is that I'm on a two way street with FS3. If you're gonna do a good job, then do it. But if you can't, or you're gonna remove important factors such as beam cannons, then don't. Listen to what the gamers have to say. Remember this quote: By Gamers, For Gamers. We don't want By Derek Smart, For Gamers. We want a true blue sequal. So I suggest you shut up with your insults, and you listen to us for once. It is not your universe. You may have the liscence, but you can't beat the hard work that has been done here. You cannot remove awesome ships like the Gargant or the Archangel. You can't just trash awesome campaigns such as Inferno, Into the Depths of Hell, etc... And if you're so smart, then I suggest you start taking down ideas from here, or it isn't going to be pretty. That's all I have to say.
