I'm going to edit the thread title. Capslock should probably be reserved for release threads.

Assuming that means I can use caps when I open the demo release thread.

Anything playable can use caps as far as I know.

If it's a RELEASE go for it. I haven't seen caps used in anything else.

I've seen it used for ANNOUNCEMENT and TRAILER multiple times. (ie. http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,57037.0.html)

Hrmph!  :p

Shouldn't be a problem if people want to put it back in the titles, then, but goodness, if every nub with a campaign idea starts going all ANNOUNCEMENT on us...

Well, it hasn't happened in the past, it shouldn't suddenly happen now...

Everything that went ANNOUNCEMENT currently has at least got somewhere.

Unless of course, mentioning this cursed it.

Ah, ****.

I've been debating very, very much as to whether or not I should expand the size of the demo.  At this point, I'm thinking it may need to include Part 1, 2, and 3, and...

Spoiler:
The first SOC loop!

oooh, SOC. I always loved them, mostly because they get all the fun toys. Especially missiles with subspace warheads....ah, too much to hope for.

SSMs? Easy enough...

Either he's talking about something as destructive as the subspace weapon on the Sathanas or a subspace artillery strike.

Those are SSMs, and they're easy enough. Either local SSMs, Shivans!-style, or from a remote artillery platform.

Doesn't that basically enable the player to use unlimited ammo, since the player's fighter doesn't literally produce the missile.

Yes, which poses a bit of a balancing problem.
Well, it could.

No, not at all; you can use TAG-Cs to call in the SSM strikes, which are ammo limited like anything else.

I thought SSMs used Targeting Laser.

The whole thing overall isn't very well documented IMO...especially the difference between the normal SSM and "local SSM".

Local SSMs are launched by the player, jump out, and then jump in at the target. Artillery SSMs jump in from out-mission and attack the designated target.
