Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
Try equipping the Caliburn with nothing but VX-08 plasma weapons.
You can oneshot pretty much everything with that.

Well the problem with those plasma weapons is they've got no range. That combined with the exploding fighters seems like a bad proposition. That being said, I can give it a go. Though my main problem with the mission was not killing the enemy, it was shooting at them at all. Seems every piece of crap on the field can out-manouevre me. Maybe I need to take it off medium for that mission.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
This combination works really well with SMHS missiles, which can destroy Cordi with ease.
Nordera fighter explosion are not as powerful as they seem, so it's not that much of a problem.

 
Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
Having to start from the beginning in that R&D mission when you die on the second or third fighter makes me mad

EDIT - And for that matter, why when I started in the second fighter was my hull integrity at 67%? Is this intentional?

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
Its a mission that could(/should) have used BP style checkpoints.
You can however make the mission as short/long as you like

You regain 50% of your hull when you switch to the next fighter.

I dunno whenever I try out the heavy fighter and have to take on that flight of pillagers I get my ass killed in like 10 seconds. The missiles don't do enough damage against them and once you're into dogfight range you're dead meat. Maybe I'll try spamming out my whole bank of missiles at range and see if I can thin their numbers.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
Wut.
The Ray 3 W rips through Nodera fighters. I nearly died in the Ray 3 E though, what good is speed when they're doing retarded loop-de-loops and run circles around you regardless?

Given, this was quite a while back when the Nodera still had retardedly low damp/rotdamp values and could pull crazy acrobatics.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
While the Nordera were totally ripping apart my Caliburn, I was the one running circles around them in the Ray-III E.... even with matching speed and just turning towards them, which isn't exactly a good way to fly.

With the E's speed you can also just afterburn out of their range, turn around and go head-to-head with them if you like, though I'd suggest using the lateral thrusters to avoid their fire while keeping it up yourself.

I fly circles around one but his other 3 buddies blast me while I'm doing it and it seems like 4-5 hits from their guns'll take me out pretty much. I'll give it another go sometime.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn

It seems there is some inconsistency.

In the third mission, Crystal talked about "not so bright gems of cordia" but that means that the Cyrvans already know the Cordi? :nervous:
"Ka-BOOOOOOOOM!!!!"
"Uh, Sir we can hear the explosion."
"No you can't, there is no air in space. Sound can't travel through a vacuum!"

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
Cordia is a Cyrvan system, unrelated to Cordi.
It's confusing because Spoon didn't released any system map for WoD and names simply sound similar (I have an incomplete version of map, so I know).

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
Cordia is a planet to be more precise

I never really got around finishing the spacemap completely but for those interested this is how it looks like right now:


Greenlines: Known stable Starlances
Purple: Starlances recently discovered due to the invasion
Red: 'Unstable' Starlance
Blue: Suspected Starlances, its very likely they are there they just haven't discovered them yet.

Nordera space is still uncharted? Unless that's the job of the CSA.

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
I doubt the LSF wants to go into Nordera space given the five-on-one beating it recently received.
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: RELEASE - Wings of Dawn
Eh? I thought the balance was several Nordera kills per LSF loss.

And the LSF lost a whole fleet and has a couple others in pieces.

The Nordera took prisoners from Human colonies and shipped them off for slave labor. The LSF is conducting several small operations in order to liberate these people.
