The Ray I is a piece of ****, its firing points are too wide! I almost feel bad for making people fly it  :P

That's what gun convergence is for :)

:( Well ain't that a shame...

(not that I've played with convergence on in FSO, IIRC the XWA one worked pretty well on the Xwing/Bwing)

How are its weapons? The Eon-17W felt pretty slow and had limited range from what I remember, which I could see making convergence only marginally effective.

I watched that with a wide smile on my face. I'm excited too. Being an admin doesn't seem to have slown him down any. If anything, he's doing more (at least visibly) than I've ever seen before. Keep it up Axem! :D

Of course, you might have taken the old Wings of Dawn story and crumpled the whole thing into a ball and tossed it in the bin for all we know... :)

He did.

The Ray IV is just fine as it is mesh wise. It just needs a new paintjob.

You should feel bad, not just almost ... but then again, as long as you keep it to the 3 missions which featured the Ray I originally you might be forgiven ;)

Yay!

Can't wait to see the rest of DD and UGC fighters

The Terrans are getting so many new ships, and yet the Hierarchy, at least from what we've been shown, have very little new.

Perhaps the campaign will go somewhat like the Forum Game 2, with fighting among themselves first, then the invasion of the Hierarchy. Or maybe Spoon is keeping the Hierarchy's new toys a secret from us, so we have to face them in battle...

Clearly best end. Unless it's in the middle of noon, then you need to put a glass of milk and some Oreos.

aren't you being too tough on the ray 1 when you consider ships like the star?

 
Wait, so are you saying that WoD could turn into a VN like experience, where we can make choices and stuff through dialogue? Would this be self contained or part of a customized SCP EXE set?

Its a few LUA scripts working together to do all of that. So its within FreeSpace, just doing stuff that I'm sure no one would have ever expected to be added to FreeSpace. ;)

We already have making choices through dialogue working without any need for LUA or customized EXEs. This is a new and way more sophisticated/awesome place to do it.

Well remember that the Ur-Quan, uhhh, I mean the Hertak limit their thralls technological development as one means of keeping them under control. That said, I would like to see a Cordi lite strike cruiser, 
a Fura'ngle bomber equivalent,
a Zy frigate and big colony ship, their entire population is supposed to be living in space right?
and finaly a large Nordera supply ship for the lulz. Opportunity for comic relief on that last one, those Nordera are so dumb and un-prepared for life in space.
That should fill out the bare bones ship fields with what has aready been seen for the WOD universe.
Oh and also Fir'Kyr?

For someone who shoots out wagon-loads of ammunition and who's fighters look like they run on chemical fuels a massive supportship actually makes a lot of sense in my opinion.

You just know they'd spend more time trying to slam those things into things than supplying with them... :D

And if you thought the explosion when you blow one of their fighters is bad... :lol:

But after losing thralls, you'd think they'd give their remaining ones (particularly their one willing one) more leeway.

Also, technological advancement limitations don't stop diversity.

And we've already seen the proof of leeway with the special Zy fighter in Stranded.

Though we can also throw all of our preconceptions out of the window as it looks like the new WoD is going to be very different to the current one.
