Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
Wait, is this like in-game purchases? I kinda remember how much flak Mass Effect and other games had when they tried to pull stuff like this off.

Pretty much the same, really.

I am not sure what kind of monetization model CIG is shooting for (although I would suspect the usual cash for ingame money and optional customization stuff), but for the moment, they're getting additional funding by selling ships with lifetime insurance to people (That more than anything else being the main advantage to buying them now instead of grinding for them ingame later).

Should there be an effort made to aquire an official HLP Iblis?

If we're not flying a Bengal, we're frankly not trying hard enough.
Let there be light
Let there be moon
Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters and let there be pain
Let us begin to feel again

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
Unless we can attract a lot more guys to the guild, I doubt we'll ever have enough people in it to crew a Bengal, let alone fight one.  An Idris is perfect.

You don't need actual players to crew ships.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
We'll just have fights over which Demios to name it after, then there will be the breakaway Republic of Vasuda who wants a Sobek and the Democratic National Nation of BPistan/National Democratic Nation of BPistan who are constantly struggling over a Tev/Feddie ship divide.

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
See! See!

And I was just talking about an Iblis, the Bengal will only cause the arguments to be about destroyers instead!

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
If it's a destroyer-size ship then it should be the Bastion, the Bastion dammit!

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
Oh, no, the destroyer argument is a lot simpler.  We just call it the Bastion.  The Bastion saved humanity twice and has no relation to the political situation in Blue Planet.

And ninja'd by Rodo.

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
I always liked the Warspite. It fought a good fight and comes with no political (Blue Planet) baggage.

For destroyers.... there is only one Galatea

The Ships are not so big in SC. More like in Wing Commander.

Bengal 1km = like the Concordia Confederation Class

Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
With the amount of detail they may as well appear bigger than anything we have seen in games before however.

Gotta remember.... you can actually walk around inside them and look out a window. Or even suit up and walk on them with magnetic boots.

Sense of scale is going to be ... interesting.

I'm pretty sure this thing will "feel" bigger than even the Colossus when you actually experience in game.

Might actually be able to do that.

I know "heavy personal weapons" were discussed quite a few times, but they have not confirmed or denied their inclusion. (or rather, not decided on it yet.)
Personal weapons like pistols and shotguns and boarding actions will be in game for certain.

 
Re: The Star Citizen HLP Brigade
Give me a Gauss shotgun and some armor and point me at the ship we're boarding. :D

Infantry weapons do not work well on starfighters. The reverse is not true.
