Thanks Rapier - fixed.

Al: I think this will probably *bump* itself for a day or so, by which time, I am hoping DevNet will be back and I can get this onto the webby properly (some very kind German members are translating my *not quite Queens English* text ;-) ).

What I then think is that we have a single sticky at the top (i'll probably put Scarecrows post back as a sticky) and everyone can just add links to that for pics, interviews, etc as we go along. Sound like a plan?

Cheers,

Steel

Wait...when you assign wingmen in X2, can you have formations instead of them just lurking behind you?

p88 - whilst that would be a nice feature if it is in the game, would it really make any significant difference? As long as they're behind you and relatively close enough to render aid in your defence or attack your enemies without having to wait a half-hour for them to arrive, I don't mind what formation they fly in :)

Formations for wingmen are a great idea imho. the different formations in Homeworld were cool and with the thrusters/tails trails the flying was amazing - just like watching the red arrows do sky tricks. i think it would be greate to see some groups of pirate come flying towards you in formation then you will know they mean business.

i like the bit about, rankings, so if u try quick start by shall we say borrowing ships, then u better consider the consequences.
intriguing bit about the mining. god i want this game, oops blasphemy again, 10 hail marys.

I was wondering that myself, and i was thinking that either they are locked to whichever sector you buy them in(which would be a shame) or they have some sort of jump drive. But there again maybe they just made the jump gates bigger :lol:

Yup, gates are bigger :-)

They do fit, I've flown them through to test (horrible visions of testing XT V2 when the TL's didn't fit very well haunts me ;-) )

Someone also asked about turning circle? You can turn on the spot, like a TL, if you have no forward momentum.

Anyway, who cares when you have a ship that's a mile long with multiple turrets...... :D

Freelance Pilots

Post by Tandem » Mon, 10. Mar 03, 22:15

Two questions about the freelance pilots mentioned in the FAQ. Will they have their own 'hate' lists seperate from the race 'hate' lists? Will they have their own factories that they build and defend over time?

Otherwise great!

this game sounds awesome

This game sounds like the hardcore sim a lot of us have been hoping for. Don't know if you are allowed to answer this, but how big of a ship can you land in a station?

I get the impression that there may be, only on certain stations mind, different sized docking ports.
