no kara, i've never liked the raptor in the series.... i wad kidding
what about the mk II cockpit development? and we'll see the blackbird too in the R1?
Easy there cowboy, whole point of episodic releases is that we don't do everything in the first one
There probably won't be a blackbird in R1, that ship has a very limited use. In single player it can only ever be used in a Galactica based campaign, in the missions we saw it fly in the show - there was only one ever built and it was pretty short lived at that, thanks to Lee not watching where he's driving. There will be a Blackbird eventually, but there'd be little point in having it until we're ready with the Galactica campaign.
The mk2 cockpit.. there aren't that many active artists here so there's little chance of both mk2 and mk7 cockpits being done at the same time, you'll have to be a bit more patient for it. We'd like to have it in R1, but there is a chance we might cut it out if it's not ready in time for the release; the mk2 viper isn't used in the R1 single player campaign (it will be available for multi though) so we probably won't be delaying R1 just on account of that cockpit. We're still hoping it'll make it in, though - if not, it'll be introduced in R2.
