Re: Post Capella, would another Colossus be built?
in subspace mission you see shivans come out of the "walls", so i guess the direction thing is just to make sure the poor NTF ships dont ram the mjolnir cannons/so you dont have too fly an extra 2000 m to your just-warped-in escort.

That never happens in FS.

Re: Post Capella, would another Colossus be built?
Hey everybody, just for clarifacation:

canon = happened in FS1, ST or FS2
non-canon = didn't happen in FS1, ST or FS2

So:

Derelict = non-canon
JAD = non-canon
Inferno = non-canon


etc...

because you see the warp effects from the side (in subspace missions) as if they are inset into the subspace "walls". if this was the intended effect from [v]...then subspace is not a one-vector entrance/exit system, but more like b5 hyperspace, only without the gates (which are the only things that restrict vector)

Confirmed. There are some fighters that escort the Lucifer at the beginning of the mission, but none of them jumps in.

:wtf:

That post made absolutely no sense at all.


EDIT: @the recent conversation: Transcend, Homesick and Derelict are non-canon.

But I suppose if you guys are still using non-canon campaigns...

I'm making a 0 mission campaign that completely contradicts the entire FS universe. Since it's 0 missions, I already finished it, and all of you have also played it. I win.

My posts makes more sense than yours :P

Firing points, the Hades in Deneb, three jump points from Sol...there are things we can't accept as valid!

Why not? They're canon. Canon inconsistencies, yes, but canon nonetheless.

Re: Post Capella, would another Colossus be built?
They're not canon. Though Alpha 1 of FS1 talks about "the jump points to Earth", in FS2 only the Gamma Draconis-Sol corridor is mentioned.

The Manticore has certain firing points, they can't be changed. And I can't think of a variant of this fighter.

And let's forget the Hades... :blah:
