What do you mean 'quietly yearn for a time'? Missile and torps are very practical heavy weapons in FSO right now.
I kinda meant some of the other weapons, like the blue and red pulsed beams (you can kinda do this in FSO but to me it'll just be a long exhaust trail "mysteriously attached" to a normal projectile rather than a true "trail pulse beam" as I would call it... with the full length causing damage), the energy bomb (they tend to fly at an arc rather than straight... cool) and the yellow beam that bends... (fighter pilot: WHOA SH**)
The machine gun lasers... well I tried tabling them but it just doesn't feel right in FS. Could be just me.
Probably just me but somehow the heavy missiles/torpedoes just feel different in the trailer than in FSO... oh well. Then again in the game the fighters shoot them down so easily... meh... not too different from FS in the practical sense I guess. One-hit kill was cool... BOOOOM
The first time I played nexus I didn't know
I was doing and fired off a missile then suddenly the alarm went off because the missile just killed something only a few km away and I almost totaled my own hull LOL
There goes the epic drama XD
