I had more q:s about Inferno R2...

1. Are there any Terran or Vasudan ships in IR2 that can RIVAL the Gigas?
2. Is the Het-Ka going to show up in IR2?
3. Does the Gargant posess any exclusive superweapon (for example BFRed on the original FS2 Sathanas)?


Finally, i would like to give some advise when you make missions for IR1 (that's what I'm doing):

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A KISMAT DESTROYER!

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.

Incorrect, the Gargant has ONE tiny subspace weapon on the front. I've pestered Woo to add Super Ultra Mega Beams on the spikes but he can't be bothered (nor does he have the time).

I had more q:s about Inferno R2...

It's not called Inferno R2. Inferno R2 is canceled and will not be released. It's now called Inferno SCP.

1. Are there any Terran or Vasudan ships in IR2 that can RIVAL the Gigas?

The Earth Alliance's Icanus super juggernaut (included in Inferno Release 1) is the same size as the Gigas and has a weapon capable of neutralizing it with two shots. The Vasudans have a flagship about the size of a juggernaut but nobody has seen it (Woo's kept it very secret so far).

2. Is the Het-Ka going to show up in IR2?

No, they have the aforementioned jug-sized flagship. However, the Het-Ka will appear as an extra (unused... Don't say anything, Mobius ;)) ship in INFASA.

3. Does the Gargant posess any exclusive superweapon (for example BFRed on the original FS2 Sathanas)?

It might, but if it does nobody knows except for Woomeister. :blah:

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A KISMAT DESTROYER!

The Kismat is in Inferno SCP, too... And it's got new teeth. ;7

Two shots?

That's a bit anticlimactic.

It isn't...Ace Combat 2, Final Fantasy VII, FreeSpace 2 and many other games... :blah:

Oh yeah... :rolleyes:


Anyway...

What's the Vasudan flagship you talked about? I thought the Secat-Hor(Sechat-Hor, whatever) was the only one.

It's probable that the Gargant won't appear in INF SCP so it will be released separately.

The spikes of the Gargant? Look...they're not quite good for beam cannons.

Yeah, I guess the ends of those arms are a little too close together to put beam cannons on and still have it look good.

In fact they're more a decoration than something useful(maybe they have something to do with the subspace weapon and/or they're the remnants of the original "stretched Sathanas" concept that is the base of the Gargant and the old Gigas).

I think the release date for INF_SCP is "when it's done". And, uh, Chiss, there's a little Modify button in your posts which you can use to make amendments. Double-posting is frowned upon.

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

Eeeh sorry about that   

Anyway, i've got an issue with FRED2- the Inferno models do not show up (the original FS2 SCP models are the only ones)

And can I convert a Inferno FS2 mission to SCP?

Aren't all of the SCPed missions in the SCP patch?

The Launcher's mod option does not affect FRED. To tell FRED to load a mod, you have to use a command-line option. Create a shortcut to FRED, then right-click the shortcut and select "Properties". Under the target box (the one that shows where the program is located) put -mod <name of mod folder>. Accessing the program through that shortcut will cause FRED to load things from the mod, rather than FS2 itself.

Hence the spawning of the Gargant.
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!

 
Which takes ∞ shots to kill... :nervous:

Well I'm sure it can be killed, but I'd imagine it would be like trying to kill a Sathanas with Subachs ... it would take forever, and will probably have killed you before you finish.  For the purposes of Inferno it will probably be invulnerable most of the time anyway.

  
Ah, but you can't kill a Sath with Subachs.

Your analogy fails. :p

In SCP you can, the last percent just takes forever (on top of the forever it would take anyway).

Hence the development of... Meson warheads?  IDK...  I would say subspace beams, but I seem to recall hearing that was caused by someone being too lazy to make a new beam effect.

I do remember one campaign, I can't for the life of me remember which one, but it involved a beam being focused through some sort of meson apparatus, which made it like 6.52x10350 times more powerful or something like that.

...huh? Oh, you mean the Gorgon cannon in Derelict that rerouted the explosive power of a Meson warhead's explosion through polar tachyon grid and some other Star Trek technobabble to create a beam of ultimate destruction.
