Re: What do you want in the rest of War in Heaven?
I'm not sure if you guys are the right people to implement this, but I for one would like the ability to simultaneously fire two or more primaries on the ship flown near the end of part one (the Uriel?).  It's a little thing, but synced rapier/gatlings would be sweet.  Also I really want the Shivans to secretly be using Naomi to sabotage humanity.  I know they probably aren't but that would just be sweet.

How about some extra campaign or chapter that mainly do capital ship combat like the one in the demo, or featuring a different protagonist in a few chapters (Like Samuel's 'dream' in AoA where you play an unnamed pilot).

Awards.
If I get a bonus objective, or kill an outstanding number of enemies, can you toss an award my way?

Things that almost definitely will happen:

Persistent consequences for choices in missions that influence later missions.

Expanded player control over the battlefield, past the usual 'give orders to wings of fighters' design.

A lot of new guns and ships.

Luckily "a lot" is subjective.

Re: What do you want in the rest of War in Heaven?
I want closure with part 2. Expansion. More dakka. Possibly a mission to mars to buy some pie.
 
 
Regarding the capital command mission included with part one. I enjoyed it for novelties sake but I wouldn't be too keen on having to finish a whole mission as a requirement in part two.
I play Freespace for my fighter fix.
 
 
 
Also. . . . . A Bomber mission, whoop.

I'm sure there'll be quite a few bomber missions in WiH part 2. They're the staple of any FreeSpace campaign.

'More than one of each!'

More than one of each that we don't see in game, or more than one of each that we don't see in the Tech Room, even after Ctrl-Shift-S?

I should clarify that you'll get to use ships like the Ainsarii, Izra'il, Durga and Vajradhra that were in R1 but never deployed.

Awesome, too.

Re: What do you want in the rest of War in Heaven?
The Durga was deployed in Collateral Damage, although the player doesn't fly it.

I believe you can also call some in during Aristeia from the point-buy deck, unless they were removed.

If I had the time I'd try my hand at making a UEF main hall. No idea how doable that is.

I tried out the Durga and Vajradhra in the Kentauroi Race mission... holy ****, they mount some badass cannons! Especially the Durga.
Now I know why that certain Corvette went down so fast when I ordered the heavy torpedo strike package.  :pimp:

Really looking forward to the bomber missions!

Re: What do you want in the rest of War in Heaven?
The race was fun aside from constantly losing the next waypoint. Auto target didn't seem to help. . .
 
The less said about massive battle the better. The only thing i'm glad about is that buntu melted before my cpu .
