Too many people ***** about them too much because "THEY CAN BE SHOT DOWN BAWWWWWWWWW."

Um, well, you could take off the bomb flag, or you could just give them a lot of hitpoints.

Easy fix.

Warship torpedoes are ****ing awesome.

I'm aware of this, I'm stating what just about everyone else of the entire community says about ship-to-ship warheads. :doubt:

 
Re: NEXUS 2, when was it cancelled ?
Ship-to-ship missiles are slower than beams and can be shot down.  I don't mind them being able to be shot down, its just that beams are faster and slow-moving vampires aren't very cool.  Plus beams are well, massive glowy beams o' doom.  If anti-capital missiles in FSO were faster and had epic missile trails like in the Nexus vid, they would be much more visually appealing.

Vampire is the name for an anti-ship missile.

and slow-moving vampires aren't very cool.

Taken out of context, I find it rather amusing.

Where is this said anti-ship missile from?

Re: NEXUS 2, when was it cancelled ?
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 :wtf:

The first time I played nexus I didn't know :wtf: 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

It's not the name for a particular missile, it's just the brevity callsign for an ASM in naval/air force jargon.

"Vampires forty, distance twenty klicks" or whatever.

Arghhh... Still can't get over how the trailer uses beams and missiles with equally nice pyrotechnics...

That's it, I'm gonna go watch it again. :lol:

Re: NEXUS 2, when was it cancelled ?
Oh those Vampires.
Naval/air force jargon translates into space combat?

But yes, that trailer is nice.
Ice cube shield a bit strange though.

Warship torpedoes are ****ing awesome.

I don't think hitpoints is the issue. I remember asking about this and I recall that bombs were destroyed by being hit not reduced to zero hit points or below.

I know for Renegade Legion mod, har har, if that ever gets anywhere, I want to make some ship to ship missiles that would have hitpoints more akin to a suicide fighter than a bomb. But I'm not sure if that's possible under FSO at the moment.

Re: NEXUS 2, when was it cancelled ?
You are correct and incorrect. Bombs were (and still are by default) destroyed by being hit, but bomb hitpoints have been introduced in 3.6.11.

Even so, War in Heaven had some quite nice ship-to-ship salvoes before missile hitpoints were introduced; it can be done. But if you want big, honking, solo torpedoes, then you need hitpoints.

Nexus 2 would have been made if Nexus 1 would have made a bit more money. It isn't incomplete you can play all the way through the game. And there are some nice mods for it to especially that Star Trek mod.

While Nexus is quite playable, there are many parts of the game that were obviously left unfinished - skill points being one of them.

Too bad, really, because it's a great game.

Stupid skill points and stupid paying points to buy items then remove them, AND NOT keep it :(

I think there's an 'undo' button on that screen somewhere. I just found it tonight.
