Re: will there still be the shivan dragon?
We ARE talking about Inferno, right? (granted, it is in INFA but it also features in INF SCP).

Re: will there still be the shivan dragon?
Yes, we are. The Succubus should be harder to kill in INFA.

Christ, you guys go over the top some times. Sounds like you'd need a cruiser to destroy this thing... :shaking:
Isdes...
I assume that this is such a cruiser.
Gettin' back to dodgin' lasers.

The Isdes is a Vasudan fighterbeam.

Which is as powerful as a Usilv, has a 1 milisecond recharge rate, and uses no power? It would need to, to defeat this thing.

Here's a spoiler:

For the time being, we're planning to use the Succubus in special situations only - - - - like when the player is alone in Shivan territory and must deal w/ one or a wing of these things.

The Dragon counterpart in INF SCP is the SF Ashtur, but I'm thinking of replacing it w/ the Dragon since there's an HTL version out, I believe...

Do you mean alone with his wing or completely solo?

The HTL Dragon isn't complete AFAIK.

It'll be completed before INF SCP is released.  Trust me.

Alpha 1 : Command, I've encountered some kind of subspace demon... I don't think I'll be leaving this place alive... OH MY GOD, it's looking right at me!

Command: Alpha 1, open fire on that fighter with your primary weapons!

Alpha 1: ARE YOU INSANE!!! Primaries are useless against that massive hull!

Command : Destroy that fighter, Alpha, there are more pressing engagements at the moment!

Alpha 1: Errg! It's moving so fast! AHH! Grrraaa..DRAGON BATTLE!!!

You mean INF SCP will be released after never?

 
Re: will there still be the shivan dragon?
I suspect the explosion effects have been updated since R1, somehow... :cool:

Re: will there still be the shivan dragon?
You'll really like to use the impact explosions though. If you use the old FS2 explosions with some of our new cluster weapons, it'll look disgusting.
