Marlin Hauler

Post by EmperorJon » Fri, 20. Mar 09, 23:31

I put this in spoilers because, well, you'll see.

Anyway, my MAIN question, is why does it look like the Argon M8 (Gladiator). It's the same ship?! Or does it have diffeent stats? I wanted a more... green... bomber... :cry:
Marlin Hauler is not available in game for all I can work out. I'm guessing thats why...! They thought about adding a Boron M8, all the description etc. is there, then they ran out of time, removed it and put a Gladiator incase anyone scripted it in... :(

I hope it's in 2.0! :D :lol:

Well, it was in the game until 1.4, when the station defense missions spawned M8s. However I never noticed that it used the same model as the Gladiator :?

It seems the Auster Hauler looks the same aswell. But I noticed something interesting. Gladiator has 1k weapon energy. Marlin has 10k! :P

But then the Auster Hauler has more shields than any, as much laser enrgy as the Marlin, although I think it might be the slowest, and at least it's available, unlike the Marlin... Is anyone allowed to say if they've seen a Marlin Hauler in 2.0 Beta...?

Yes, of course they are. There's no Official Secrets Act or anything.

I'm pretty sure the Bomber class has been somewhat reduced though. You can take a look at the Beta any time if you want to check.

While it's true that L3 access doesn't require an NDA, it has been requested that people avoid discussing new features in the main forums - but that's more to do with spoilers than anything else.

im been playing RC1 for over 8 game days and the Marlin hauler dont even is in my encyclopedia... Neither is the Auster.

Why you whant a M8 with that tiny cargo bay? the MArlin is the most useless M8 i never ever see. it should be called "Marlin non-Hauler" or something.

I saw a Marlin Hauler spawned via RRF plugin when the Boron invaded the Teladi. Its cargo bay is terrible, about 300 or 380.
