Congratulations on scaring off the female voice talent. You should both be ashamed of yourselves. :p

Seriously though, try to avoid sounding like horny 12 year olds.

The new mediavps do that... but how can we even be sure it's a sun and not an explosion (like a nuke or something)? And I don't think diaspora is going to rely on the mediavps, so... yeah.

That could easily be a media VP sun since at the moment Diaspora has to be run on an FS2 install as we don't have all the interface files we need. This will of course change before release.

this is my opinion so take it or leave it.

what kind of name is diaspora? to me it just sounds like rubbish. that opinion out the way.

could you say what these non-canon ships are? i would wonder if it's always going to be mk7's and mk2's along with a couple of raptors in a fight with many cylon raiders and a few heavy raiders. not really dynamic.

Regarding non-canon ships, we will have some that you can fly, but I won't say what they are just yet ;)

It's a word. Look it up (or read the FAQ). And it fits the backstory of the BSG universe quite nicely.

I think it works really well, and has that association with a large part of the message BSG contains.

You should totally put an FS2 ship in as an easter egg.

Beyond the Blue Line? Beyond the Green Line? Or 'Really Really Far Beyond the Red Line'?
I suggested "In front of the Red Line", wasn't too popular.  :blah:

You don't know the name Diaspora? You're from Israel and that name has been widely used to designate your people's forced movements in the past few centuries...

That is certainly a very poor reason for you not liking the name. "sounds like rubbish"? How about giving a real reason.

As for my own opinion, Diaspora first of all sounds VERY cool. Secondly, it is an smart name that actually has meaning and requires some level of intelligence for people to research what the word means, and teaches a new word for those who dont know it. Additionally, it is very fitting for the Battlestar Galactica story (and the Devs backstory) Last but not least, it is a catchy name, easy to remember and great for marketing and promotion as it is pretty unique.

really? well it looks awesome ^^, if added to media vps It should make the game more special, having tho different kind of effects for suns would make freespace more diverse, are you going to release that one?

to be honest, i've never really even noticed much Sci-Fi stuff besides SW and FS, but the few screenshots scattered on this board really make me wanna watch the show now.

I recommend it...

He isn't the one calling it racist.

Race(which doesn't exist) and nationality are two separate things. I "might" be nationalist but I'm not a racist.
