Damnit Turnsky, you're getting good at that. You're already making stations, and here I am still making hover tanks. :p

[sandy]Edited for sanity. Don't put such large images on such slow servers, man... 1.2mb - sheesh! I've cropped it, saved in a smaller format, and attached it to the post so it uses HLP bandwidth.[/sandy]
// Oopsie. 1. That server isn't supposed to be slow, but I geuss it being in Holland isn't good for the faraway people here. 2. I didn't realise it was 1.2 MB, my bad.

Anyways, I'm more for UT's idea then an arcadia. I mean, we've got shivans and vasudans here, so a GTA installation seems a bit, odd.

Ahem:

Yeah, we know... it's happening so randomly, and it's not duplicatable, so we think it's a bug in FF, or perhaps incomplete data transfer. I dunno.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

How then would you create something Terran/Vasudan/Shivan?  I've seen a Shivan/Terran hybrid (you all know what I'm referring to) and that was an awesome ship.  But I don't think I've ever seen a model or concept for something built for all three races.

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
You know, considering the death of the VWBB and the relative obscurity of the Freespace games, I would see HLP more as a large, wandering ship populated by exiles. Somewhat like the Galactica.

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
 Iv alwasy thought that HLP was a Orion class destroyer officialy; guess its not.

I say we should construct a instalation. Time for regular sized rooms and warm showers! Arcadia or that one MODed instalation in the first page.

Pffft, they knew what they were getting into. They made a decision based on personal politics, and so they suffered the consequences.

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
I always thought that "Hard Light Productions" is a company, just like Triton Dynamics, Han-Ronald Corp., RNI Systems, Nankam Aeronautical, Dynamic Metamer, Mekhu Enterprises, Akheton Corp., Sahr Corp. or any other such instance.

Only difference is that HLP does not produce income, the employees are all volunteers, and the company produces both new ship types and most obscure modifications of existing designs. Thus, HLP installation would probably be near an asteroid field to easily delve building materials for ships and it would probably consist of an Arcadia station connected to several Docking rings and other shipdocks equipment. It's also possible that the insides (or a part of them) of that particular Arcadia have been modified in a similar fashion to planet Margarathea, thus enabling HLP also to design utterly gargantual constructions affectionately called "skyboxes", which quite much tells what they are about. The Arcadia is also connected to several systems by artificial jump nodes, some of them actually inter-galactic, as there has been regular ightings of some things from a galaxy far far away. It's also suggested that HLP has developed some contacts with multiple parallel realities; one of the best establsihed connections to these parallel universes leads into a world where there are actually multiple intelligent species interacting with each other - some of them with most weird names as Vorlons and Narn...

Re: The Hard Light Productions Installation
Station is missing docks (hangars) for large ships.

As far as I recall, UT described teh HLP station as being uttely, redicolosly huge, and that a DESTROYER can fit into some of it's bays.

Well, it is my world.  This place is my main source of entertainment and discussion since my laptop broke.  That's part of the reason for my bringing this up.

EDIT: knn, do you know the scale you are talking?  Has such a thing even been attempted, aside from that Zentraedi superfortress in the Robotech mod?

It can't be a ship anyways, because Steak's an AWACS and he's in here.
