And the TW war lasted 14 years...not 100.. the tech difference cannot be too big..


They have laser like weapons, but they're only on the big cap ships to start with.  A little fighter isn't going to carry a decent energy weapon until A) the weapon's size is reduced and B) the reactors on the fighters produce enough energy for them to be useful in combat without sacrficing speed/manuverablity.  It's a delicate balance, and for a time (and into the 14 Year War) it's in favor of slug flingers over lasers.

I can't believe it's been so long since we started.  Kind of scary actually.

Just to point on one or two things:

According to the tech room descriptions, the Orion has been around for a while - at the last 7 years of the war.

An Orion is a big investment and takes long to build, so I wager they allready have developed weapons to use on the Orion before that.

Starting with weaker, less known weapon is o.k. - after all, technology develops during a war, but don't overo it. You don't go building 2km warships with slinghots on them..

Since a war has lasted for so long, it must have pretty depelted both sides. It is common practice to re-fit civilian vessels to act as escort carriers/cruisers. Sometimes unfinished civilian hulls on the scafflods have been used to make cariers and warships.

I'm kinda of a military freak and I've read all there is to read on the greates naval battles in history (the battles on the Pacific in particular).

B.t.w. - I say again. Do you need help with your project?

We still haven't started the war with Vasuda yet. And that is the begining of the 14 year war. This is the unification war.

Once the actual war begins with the Vasudans, there'll be 7 years to work up to the Orion. So it fits.

It's kinda hard to find a loophole in Eishtmo's stories. :nod:

Although we did have some good debates ( battles? ;) )

Might be just me, but i'm getting a bit fed up with this thread.

It's not like we go to other campaign's forums and try forcing our own ideas on them - ESPECIALLY when that campaign is already way beyond the stage of the initial content development.

I'm fine with leaving this thread open unless it turns into a flame-fest.  It's public discussion, after all, which is a good thing for any hosted project.  And the populace is free to offer ideas - they do it all the time in the Inferno forum.  We aren't obligated to use any of them, of course, but someone might post something we hadn't thought of. :)

TrashMan, Blitzerland, and others: TVWP doesn't need help at the moment; we've got all our bases covered.  What we need most is more free time, which I doubt you could provide. ;)

I don't think so.

Getting someone who is decided to throw overboard all our current work (with an IMHO better consistency) for something he belives right is rather counter-productive.

Please, don't compare us to Inferno. Please. Nothing could be so far from truth.

I agree about leaving this open for now, though. As you said, it's a public discussion, even though it may be noted to be absolutely off-topic.

Off-topicness is omnipresent. :nervous:
Really, what do you expect from a thread like this?
