Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
The hara isn't that big. I imagine their main installation to be the size of a small planet or moon.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
I think the same thing. Their minor outposts could be smaller and reach Hara specifications. I don't think they have Arcadia-sized installation, however. I find them too small for their purposes. They also have the time and the resources to build immense stations only. What do you think? :)

Well they could build the Arachnas installation in a few days, and use it as a staging area or rallying point, and when they're done with the sector, abandon it or destroy it.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
The point is that they don't need rally points. Look at the Sathanas fleet...no Arachnas size installation could have supplies a Sathanas fleet.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Well a staging area for cruisers and smaller ships. The Saths can do whatever they want. Besides, it's not like the ENTIRE Sath fleet's going to appear near an Arachnas just a few. Sort of like this:

Please note that the Sathanas fleet arrived in a short amount of time.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
And they all headed for the sun. If they did any refueling or whatever, they did it in the binary system or in the system beyond the Knossos 3.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Sure. A refueling. In a massive station, not in an Arachnas!

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Yeah, yeah, I mean the Arachnas would be a sort of 'forward staging area' for cruisers and stuff like that.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
They only need es-cargo<t :P> depots. And there shouldn't be "forward staging areas" since every system is, virtually, Shivan. And they pull back without constructing outposts.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Well Arachnas stations have some purpose. They could be used as fighter launching points when there are no destroyers present.

Don't. Spoil. Shadows of the Great War!!! :mad:

And we're talking about "possible Shivan outposts", not Inferno.

Well the only public "possible Shivan outpost" models are the Arachnas. (I wouldn't call the Hara a "post")

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
There is INF SCP, WIP, which is going to replace INFR1 ;7 And there's INFA SA, WIP ;7

Anyways, Snail, I didn't want to talk about Inferno in this topic. I can only imagine kietotheworld's reply :doubt:

 
Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
Eh, somehow I don't see Shivans as needing stationary outposts.  They just aren't a 'defense' kind of species.  In fact, the only Shivan object that can't be redeployed elsewhere is the Shivan comm node, since sentry guns are small enough to repack in cargo containers.

From what I can tell, they prefer to stay on the move, so their weaknesses aren't exploitable by enemies.  They can carry plenty of fighters and bombers in their warships, bring along lots of gas miners and freighters/transports to cover logistics, and with their advanced subspace abilities they crush a species with frightening efficiency.

If they built an outpost, that would just be wasted time and resources since the Shivans wouldn't be able to take it with them when all enemies in the system are dead.

Re: GTVA Colossus VS SJ Sathanas
unless, of course, there are sytems with no toher species in them (concured, if you woudl prefer), they set up outposts there. where else would they build ships and well...be shivan?

Burn the sucker out of the sky!
