Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Ours only hurt if you get hit by them at point blank range since the further they travel from the turret, the further the shots spread apart so you don't get the full hit at a further distance. Our flak can be more annoying since it's faster than the FS2 flak.

 
Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
They may not hurt but they sure annoy the hell out of me! Especially when they shoot down the bombs you throw at whatever it is your targeting...... Good job programming that by the way they are MUCH more accurate than FS2 turrets.

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
I said "more accurate" not "faster". :rolleyes:

But like Woomeister said they do very little actual damage...they just throw you away from whatever ship you're trying to take down.

Enemy weapons fire at 2x the FS2 rates on very easy to the same rate as fs2 on insane, firendly weapons fire at 4x faster on very easy and at the same rate as fs2 on insane (usually FS2 fire rate is 4x slower on very easy than insane) so the lower the difficulty you play on, the more you'll notice the difference.

Our weapons can take a light fighter down quite quicky, you'll regret challenging a cruiser in a Mihos...

 
Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
yea, I don't make a habit out of attackin cap ships. . . .  I usually go for the fighters. . . . (my caps can defend themselves)

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
That's because you play on too low a difficulty.  :lol:

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Yeah but you're ALSO supposed to execute precision strikes against troublesome turrets on said enemy cap ships.

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Getting back to the Gargant...I'm rather disappointed you're not using it at the moment.

It would have had a good spot in my campaign........ don't worry about mine contradicting Inferno, it takes place long afterward.

As to how to destroy a Gargant (original topic of this thread, in case people have forgotten) just throw a few Icanuses at them, I've witnessed how easily it can shred the Gigas...


oh btw, idle question, but if you put ships from two different speciesand label them both as "hostile" team, do they still attack each other?

Several Icanus class ships wouldn't be able to beat it before they are destroyed. One of them might do 2-4% damage before it's destroyed.

hostiles won't attack each other even if they are different species, you need to set one group as neutral and select 'all teams at war' in FRED.

Guess I underestimated the Gargant's armor....

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Something tell me that it can even survive supernova. if super uber beam of death that supose to have couple of millions or even billions dergee dammage it  about 2-4%, then noca would fry it only a bit.

If we would have a new meson warhead that blow up like nova, then we would have to stic it directly to gargant hull (it would be best to put it at weakest part) to destroy it (something like WW2 sticky bombs vs heavy armoured tanks).

I bet GTVA will be crushed. If not by Gargant, then by that super-uber-massive moon-size juggernauth. ;7

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
Deimos class corvettes can even (partialy) survive supernovae, i'm preety sure the gargant will have no trouble.

Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
By survive I mean that it can use & move away after nova :D

 
Re: How they might destroy the Gargant
The corvettes didn't survive the supernova....that was just the EMP shockwave preceding the real explosion.
