Yes, the gigas is that ridiculously large ship that warps in at the end of R1, and no, I don't think it is replaced — the Gargant is something different entirely (the Gargant is much larger).

Re: Some Q:s about Inferno
Oh. How big is the Gargant anyway? The Icanus looks like a cruiser compared to it...as if the Icanus wasn't big enough. :wtf:

Nobody's allowed out over here anyway.   I nominate E (as a fair and just overlord) to arrange a Zoom HLP Social.

38.7km to be exact

 
Re: Some Q:s about Inferno
38.7?!! I hope there aren't any subsystem-specific missions involving it!  That'd take a year to fly across!!!
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!

I doubt that there will be.  IIRC the Icanus main beam barely scratches its turrets, and I doubt that bombs would do much better.

 
Re: Some Q:s about Inferno
In other words, the Gargant isn't a warship, it's a plot device.

I'm still eager to see what the Inferno team does with it...

Re: Some Q:s about Inferno
Ah, and one more thing about the Gargant which I remembered from some old information: it cannot be disabled.

Oh yeah ... it doesn't have any engine subsystems or thrusters.  It just ... moves.

And I thought that the Gargant's "overkill" level couldn't get larger ...  :doubt:

Actually it's 37.8km, not 38.7km... Oopsies! ;)

And shoots, and kills...

Pertaining to it shooting and killing...where are its beam turrets? Everywhere?

Yeah, basically.  You can see a few in the pictures (one is targeted), but I would bet that there are four uber-mega-destructo beams on the arms (I don't know though).  I have heard it can easily lay waste to entire fleets only with its rear beams though.

Yeah and one more thing...

The Earth Model is kind of weird... When I make one in FRED, only the description shows up, ie no model.
In-mission, I can target it but i don't see it unless in the left-corner desc window.

WHAT'S THE PROBLEM??  :confused:

:welcomesilver:

∞ Welcome to the HLPBB from me, too!!!

FRED doesn't render the model when it is the way too big(like Earth). ∞

They're infinity loops. Which he probably chose because they're kind of like Mobius strips.

Also, they are just making me want to disable signatures. I think I will.

Yeah, I know. I was just asking impolitely, since now I wish I could edit my profile to automatically clean any colours and excess symbols from posts.
