Post by: kizcat on April 16, 2008, 06:52:13 PM
well, just as it says, what ship from BSG do you most want to fly in the game?
this is more just a question of curiosity than anything else...

mine would be the raptor cause they look cool!

Ha ha, for the sheer stupidity of it I want to pull a "Riker" (see the movie Star Trek: Insurrection for clarification) and fly a cap ship with a joystick.

"Here come Pegasus!" Pulls trigger, "Ack Ack Ack!"

I personally would like to use the Missile Raptor, however, i dont know how useful it will be realistically. Not even sure what there real function is, attack enemy fighters with swarms of missiles, or fire missiles at baseships... or even both? we know raptors they can launch nukes even (Kobols Lost Gleaming PTII, even though the launch mechanism failed)

after that, id like to fly anything around, especialy see what the tem came up with that was non-canon...

Could probably command a Battlestar in the X3 BSG mod...if it was ever finished. Haven't a clue frankly but it strikes me that game's engine is better suited to commanding capital ships.

I'd rather like to pilot the old MkI Vipers from TOS...still think they look somehow nicer than the MKIIs and MkVIIs.

Viper Mk IV as a "heavy attack Viper." The ship just looks tough...

Furthermore, an Asp Mk1 would be nice-See shipschematics.net to see what I mean.

Oh come on. Anyone would think I'd just said that Starbuck and Boomer were better as men (not as pretty as men at any rate...)
 I thought Galactica had at least one MKI on it anyway...it was a museum when the Cylon attack began was it not? S'rather sad to see a fine ship sitting ignored in a museum collecting (space)dust. Just thought it might be nice to take it out every now and then, like a classic car at the weekend...but in space...with guns...wasting toasters.

No offence intended, just can't fathom anyone favouring MKI over MarkII. I think it's the best looking, flying, shooting fighter, which is why I enjoy getting the fruits of the Devs labour and getting as cose to flying it as possible.

Thanks Devs by the way :biggrin1:

I'd like to fly Pegasus in Silent Hunter style.

In this game however, it's definatley the Raptor.

Heck, if they made a Flight Simulator with a Raptor where you have to do all kinds of utility tasks, it'd be awesome.

I think you will be quite pleased with what these gents can do.  The quality and interpretation of other ships with less than 100% in show coverage as been excellent so far, why should the Stealthstar be any different?
Title: the ship you most want to fly
Post by: DarknessKnight on April 24, 2008, 04:21:42 AM
No doubts about the can do of this team, but reality check, its a ship that can only be used in 2, 3 missions the most BEFORE the series, we dont know whats its capacity besides its stealth (is it a sr71 blackbird with no guns or more like a f22 lightning, highly maneuverable and armed? we dont know), all in all i myself and im a fan know that its a bit pushy to take your already slim time to make a model that to be honest will have little or no impact in the story. They might think of it when the mod its done but right now im more inclined that they will concentrate more in the missile raptor and the vipers.
Title: the ship you most want to fly
Post by: Wolfy on April 24, 2008, 10:22:10 AM
you are however forgetting, that although the stealthstar probally couldnt be used during the main campaign, alot of people here are quite experienced with FRED and can make missions with it in. Besides, it just adds some more variety.

Also, seeming the devs are creating non-canon ships, you can expect to see most canon ships, the stealthstar of course, being canon. As for the lack of angels, i have full confidence in the Devs to be able to make it look canon

Also when u think about it, weve not seen all views of that many ships, infact we normally only see the battlestars on that one angle.

Spoiler for season 4, episode 3

[spoiler]Even the Demeitrius isnt seen on that many angles, right now itd prrobaly be easier to build the stealthstar than it, however more views will be shown i presume[/spoiler]

Well we do know its stealth absolutely sucks.  The Cylons could see it and the Colonials could not only see it but shoot it with a ship-to-ship missile.  Stealth my ass!:lol:

spoilers from the season 3 episode "Hero" ahead.

[spoiler]Yeah stealthstar failed miserably in the mission that was launched from the Valkyrie.
Makes you wonder - a ship that was designed and built by expert aerospace engineers, using vast resources of the colonies, is outclassed by a bucket of bolts welded together on the galactica's deck by a guy who wanted a hobby... So that improvised weld job is invisible to the Cylons due to the fact that it's made of carbon composites (?), while a ship that was developed by teams of experts using specialized equipment and quite possibly a nice portion of the colonies military budget fails to do just that?
So is it possible that that the stealthstar's stealth capabilities are actually just fine, it's just that at the time the Cylons have already infiltrated the Colonies and knew about the mission in advance? It's much easier to shoot down a stealth aircraft if you know where it's going to be... it has happened in real life. [/spoiler]

That video is downright stunning. I noticed that at 4:53 to 4:57 the cargo looking ship on the right of the screen makes an FTL jump. Didn't know the team had already set that all up. The Raptor also makes me giggle. Not because its a funny model or anything. (it looks superb actually.) but because I'm trying to imagine one of the suped up missle pod toting ones from 4x01. If I ever get my hands on that shiney red button......:squeeze:

I forsee a mission where I can launch out of the BSG, fly around the fleet, watch two basestars jump in, kill some cylons, and then make a combat landing.

If that ever happens....my rather nerdy life would be complete.

Evidently you did a very good job of protecting the Monarch and never went after the Cylon Scout in Birth of a Legend. If you play that mission again you'll notice that both ships jump out when threatened.
