GTF Hercules Mk III
Why does Inferno's high-poly model only have four primary hardpoints? You're killing me here, Woomeister.

Re: GTF Hercules Mk III
Since the original Hercules had 6 primaries, the Herc mk. II had 4, then the Herc Mk. III should logically have 2, to follow the pattern.

Re: GTF Hercules Mk III
But the Herc III this is based on, this one by Hamano, has eight. And that's what I wanted to use. :(

Re: GTF Hercules Mk III
Hamano also did another fighter that looks a lot cooler than the Herc III, but it was never released. :sigh:

From what I read in the tech room of Nostos:

Spoiler:
It looks like the Alves, whenever we get to use it, will be the 'gunboat' (8 guns) fighter of the campaign.

Re: GTF Hercules Mk III
We reduced the gun points on the Herc III from 8 to 4 for balancing; no point giving the player a heavy fighter with 8 mounts early in the campaign.  Instead we want the player to carry Hurricanes and/or Hornets and use the Herc III as a missile platform, as Rhymes pointed out earlier.  The Alves will be the heavy fighter for the mid-campaign.

Are you talking about this?

Re: GTF Hercules Mk III
^Exactly this. I've found pics on Hamanos website ( http://www.lares.dti.ne.jp/~hamano/TEMP/ , look for files that start with "The"), but I've never seen a download link to the Theseus. Detail wise it'd outdated by now, but the design is pretty IMO.

BALANCING? I thought this was Inferno, the mod synonymous with More Dakka. Don't you have a bomber with ten gunpoints? I expect to start in an Erinyes and go bigger from there.

(This is all good-natured ribbing btw, you folks did a great job.)

Well, the GTF Ladiel (OTT) and the GTF Keres (INFR1) have 16 primary mounts each. Do you want to start a balancing contest?
