The maps suck but they're WIP, or so says the Celebration of FS thread.

Yeah, they're going to be replaced. We got FreeSpaceKing on the crew, and provided he actually does something instead of going 158 on us, I think the Anhur will be his first task.

I think I see some mangled Leviathans too. Take note of that, MANGLED Leviathans, not Leviathan debris. They must have made a reskin just for it.

It ain't a crime to reuse old models, is it? If it is... :shaking:

     No it's good to use old models, especially if they've never been used before. I was simply pointing out where teh credit was due for the original design.

Oooooooooooooooh pretty...............And I spys a new missile as well.

I'm guessing that's a heavy assault fighter like the Herc?

Well, no. :P

It's a heavy interceptor. For heavy intercepting.

Those 2 words contradict each other... :wtf:

Interceptors are meant to be light and fast so they can chase down bombs. Having a heavy inceptor defeats the purpose. Unless your planning to use very powerful, very slow bombs whose shockwaves *REALLY* hurt and so creating a need for a heavy interceptor.

Then again if they were that slow, you may as well take them out from a distance which negates the need for a heavy interceptor.
Unless your trying to create a hybrid between a heavy assault fighter and an interceptor, but that doesn't seem realistic either.

In fact that ship looks like it could be a light bomber if it wanted to be.



One more thing, why are you using gamewarden for your forums instead of hard-light?

In the final missions of FreeSpace 2, would you rather be flying an Ares with Trebuchets or a Perseus with an armament of your choice?

An Agias pilot doesn't seek to shoot down bombs. An Agias pilot seeks to prevent any from being launched in the first place.
