Re: Freespace V.S. Star Wars Part Four
I would have preferred a Shivan Vs. Empire rather than Shivan allied with Empire kind of story, since they both have seemingly unlimited resources, and the GTVA and rebel alliance would be caught in the middle.

Maybe because the canon information proves that SD shields can dissipate teratons of energy per second

First off energy isn't measured in tons. Secondly it's Freespace canon that beams of any kind can penetrate any kind of shields. If that wasn't enough, freespace fighters are (in general) more heavily armed and armored plus a shielding system is standard issue, whereas Tie fighters would get torn apart very quickly not only from fighters but also flak from capital ships.
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

He means teratons of TNT equivalent.

Besides that, we have no proof at all FS shields for the same way as SW shields.

Does it matter what you all think? It just matters what the author thinks and what he writes. Besides, in a competition of fanboys (no offense to anyone) no one will win.

We should just trust Shivan Emperor's judgement on balancing out FS and SW. These fanboy arguments make me sad.

Re: Freespace V.S. Star Wars Part Four
Hi all :)

Well imho I prefer Starwars which is obvious A it's much older and B it's build up is in many cases wider, the expanded universe is just massive, where FreeSpace well just isn't comparable to it.

but on the other hand the FreeSpace series are a very good alternative I like both very much, the Wing Commander series is something better built up than the FreeSpace series though but hey, that's my little opinion there ;)

Re: Freespace V.S. Star Wars Part Four
In my opinion, Star Wars is incoherent because of the EU. I mean, George Lucas had a clear vision of what he wanted to do with Star Wars. But then all these random comic writers and book authors came along and messed up his vision. They added some random crap with fifty billion Sith lords and even more Jedi masters and added random crap like the Yuuzhan Vong... IMO the only Star Wars are the first 3 movies. The rest is fan fiction.

well the rest is the expanded universe ;) same thing you have with Star Trek, the Movies EP 1 through 6 are just a small glimpse of a massive as wide universe, just as an example on how the Starwarse universe is like, there were much greater events even before the birth of Master Yoda himself, the expanded universe makes the Star-Wars universe as big as it really is since there is much much more than "just" the movies. all the books of the DarkSaber series the X-Wing Series and so on they also tell apert of the star wars universe, it's much larger than you could possibly think , but that doesn't matter :)

Re: Freespace V.S. Star Wars Part Four
he was actually quoted saying that after indiana ones (the first three) They became buisinessmen, not filmmakers. Though that is taken slighly out of context, he also said that after Young Indy, they decided to become filmmakers again... now THAT is something to wonder at...
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

I prefer Episodes I-III just because it's more realistic compared to the original trilogy and more sub-stories to it.

So a 9 year old blowing up a military installation is realistic? :wtf:

Anakin was . . . special and besides no matter how strong the warrior is, luck determines his fate.

Re: Freespace V.S. Star Wars Part Four
How was the prequel trilogy more realistic?
Some of it hardly made sense.

KotOR is awesome though...even though its EU. KotOR2 not so much, but its still decent.
It's also far off enough not to completely mess up anything in the original trilogy. (though the hardly-any-tech-development-in-10000-years thing is slightly weird).

I dunno . . . some of the good guys actually die . . . all the sub-plots fit together to create the terrifying change of Anakin to D.V.

Like in the original trilogy, in episode VI Leia gets shot in the arm and it isn't even seriously hurt, but Han can just shoot a stormtrooper who is fully armoured and the stormtrooper dies straight away.

OK, well I guess that my view is odd, so I'm ending my case.  :p

You do remember KotOR was rushed out of development by LucasArts, and so is nowhere near its intended completion state?

Saying the prequels were more realistic is like saying sugar is saltier than salt.

 
Re: Freespace V.S. Star Wars Part Four
The whole point of Star Wars is that it's not realistic. That's what makes it fun

Plot armor.  A storytelling device from time immemorial. :p

(Plus, Han probably had a bigger boomstick.)
