No, because there's a buttload. I'm focusing on bigger stuff right now.:p

Uh, any starfighter would have thrust vectoring. That's how SW fighters maneuver. They're not like BSG Vipers with RCS units at the extremities to allow for a 180-degree snap roll in 0.35 seconds. They handle more like aircraft than spacecraft for cinematic reasons, obviously.

And I have no problems keeping it that way.


...the fighter I designed I did with a realistic way of flight in mind rather than the cinematic one...

Does that void the design if I broke the mold?

It will do horrible, horrible things to the price. :p

Fortunately, free redesigns with cash incentives can fix any design problem. >_>

I did tell you when it was first submitted that I had realistic flight physics in mind...why the surprise now? :?

At that time, Kal... realism was my watchword. Now it's "what will fit in the game without doing horrible, horrible things to balance." And put simply... something that can snap a 180 in a fraction of a second and make the pursuer eat any number of nasty things before the pursuing pilot can blink, while an attractive option from my chair as a Faction Leader, but as an admin... bad. Especially NOW, with superships being outright dropped and this economic reset and a push for more canon ships and fewer supervessels.

Sadly, Star Wars is not known for optimal starfighter performance. Didn't have the tech in the 70s, so... they act like aircraft.

I want some sort of like, 1 supership. Like, some company can be the only one with the rights to sell them, and factions get just one. I just like the idea of badass flagships. :)

Why don't you just get a flagship that's ten times better than the ships you have now ... I hear Carracks are cheap too :P

That's okay, I have a few ideas for collaborative missions and whatnot that will get you some extra cash once the overhaul is finished ... assuming that I get compensated for the billions in cash that I have saved...

Everyone is getting cash to buy back assets... now, will you get billions and billions or trillions of credits? Doubtful. But hell, maybe. But don't plan on it... and PLEASE don't gripe about it. You were all perfectly on board with this reset when it meant no more supership fleets. >_>

I'm not griping, I'm planning ahead under the assumption that I will have spare cash to throw around ... if I don't, it just means that I will have to rethink things, not that I will complain about it. Besides, I'm only planning cause I have nothing else to do :P

I'm just waiting for the reset to actually happen before I can pass judgement on it...

True. The reset is amazingly well timed, actually.

Bad news about Tiara's map... it's missing a ton of planets from the game, and I don't mean the ones we added. There's no Nespis, first off. :p

Umm, it's not like I'm going to nullify the Nespis Republic over this. >_>

It just jeopardizes the new map. Now, some of us have Photoshop skills... and I could perhaps enlist their efforts to add back in VITAL planets. :p
