Yes, this I know!

Oh well, let's stay then with our multiple FS3's  ;7

However, I still would be interested in knowing what was the "general idea" they had in mind when they were mentioning the "much bigger problem" or the "think bigger" possibilities.

This could be included in a campaign, even while not naming it FS3.

By the way, I disagree: space sims rock today: Didn't I mention the illustrious wing commander arena? 4 motion degres instead of 6, power ups in space, the shiny future of the genre. :lol:

You reckon we'll be seeing FS arena one day? "sarcasm, sarcasm"

  • Adrift in the never ending void
If the garret is invincible then how do you destroy it? steal a shivan cargo ship, use etak to dock, then transmit a virus whilst docked to self destruct?
Imagine awakening, and hearing the heartbeat of the galaxy for the first time.
It is like a cloud, a mist that drifts from living creature to creature, set in motion by currents and eddies.
It is the eye of the storm, the passions of all living things turned into energy, into a chorus.
It is the rising swell at the end of life, the promise of new territories and new blood, the call of new mysteries in the dark.

Its not invincible. It just takes about a day to kill with multiple beams.

Actually, it might work.

With a Z-Bomb (the Doomsday bomb capable of turning the planet into a small sun) and it takes all six in existance to destroy a single Gargant

How I'd love to see one destroyed in a campaign. ;7

A mini-supernova. You think a fighter would survive a shockwave from the Gargant ?

Is destroyed delay
>SH Gargant
Supernova start
>1

AMEN

But still, without cheats or invisible Sathanas' nuking a sun, the Gargant's shockwave ( or engine wash ) should make little fighters vanish with no trace except for a scream through the comms.

The Harby's a nuke and that does less than 0.1x10^-16 damage, doesn't it?

Harbinger? It does 5000 HP damage ( 5 gigatons ).

P.S. I think we just found out how to kill the Gargant - make someone nuke a star while the Gargant is in system.

You know, it sounds really simple, when you put it that way.

Haha. So what will Inferno team say about THAT ? There's no way to make a ship survive a FreeSpace supernova. [voice-slowing-down]Unless it makes an intersystem jump during the 60 seconds that take for the supernova to reach it.[/voice-slowing-down] DAMMIT !!!

Yeah, but it's so much more gratifying to kill it conventionnally. (or possibly less conventionnally, like tearing it up from the inside à la descent).

Let's just give them the bird flu.

Ok, bad joke. But the Gargant HAS to have a weakness. Or else humanity is, well... pretty much screwed.

I think I know that, Snail.

 
WTF? The Harbinger has 5 Gigatons payload, that's a hundred times the Tsar Bomb. It released 5.3 ****ing yottawatts of energy! Multiplied with hundred, it's got more power than the luminosity of the sun! Measuring by this, one might need more power to destroy the Gargant than the event horizon allows, or even a planck power (3.63 × 1052W, a simply unbelievably stupid high amount of energy).
And this ain't no ****. But don't quote me for that one. - Mika

Try not to think of it that much. All it will do is cause MORE headaches.

IMO a megaton isn't a megaton of TNT, but a megaton of pussycrap explosive in the future. It helps to explain it.
