They are all single pilot/crew ships. The largest are frieghters, but they still only have 1 person running the ship. So no dreams of cap ship commanding will come true - until someone makes a mod <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Kahar --------------------------------------- &lt;Wizard&gt; she isn´t a bo-hot! she´s my date &lt;Wizard&gt; she´s just AFK <img src=smilies/icon_smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

I don´t know if I´d like to play as a giant capital ship. The idea is good but after playing Independence War 2 with the Babylon 5 Cap-Ship mods.. I´ve found that it takes away from the feel of the game. I think what I would like better is to pilot a fighter or small ship, such as a corvette, and be able to call in other ships to help. Imagine being in a huge mess at one point in the game. Everything seems hopeless for you and your wingmen when suddenly you remember you earned enough points throughout the game to call in a battleship to tilt the odds in your favor. A few key strokes and suddenly a mass of iron comes out of nowhere and lays waste to your opposition. Now that would satisfy me! <img src=smilies/icon_smile_big.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle> Edited by - Vyse on 29-01-2003 11:29:11

if all the ships are pilotable only by one person how long is the biggest and are there any more human habitable parts of the ship except the cockpit (like a bunk or galley) not that these parts are shown, but do they have the potential to be there (in relation to size) I rule the world incognito!

well for the bigger ships like there should be two or more, you pilot while your 1st m8 shoots your enemies...then if any police are around...you can call for help via NN or dialing 911 <img src=smilies/icon_smile_wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>. you can use your NN to communicate right?

From everything I´ve seen it doesn´t look like you are able to get up and wander around your ship. You may just have to use your imagination for those times when Trent is sleeping or going potty. Since it looks like the ships won´t even have cockpits I doubt they will have full interiors. As for flying a capship, it doesn´t sound like tons of fun. There was a way to fly a freighter or the destroyer in Priv2 but then you had to cruise around at 50. It was a little more fun to hack your savegame and put the destroyer´s guns on on the Jincilla Skull, then you could go really fast and kill most guys with one or two hits. Let´s get those missiles ready to destroy the universe!!

Basically... there are three classes... Light Fighter, Heavy Fighter, and Freighters... The first two are your normal standard vehicles <img src=smilies/icon_smile_tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>... the third is heavy, large, strong... and uses multiple turrets for defense... as opposed to the others which have more forward firing weaponary and only one turret (mayeb 2) Question for PR´s: 1) Do freighters carry forward firing weapons as well as turrets? 2) Has the question of turrets being able to automatically defend your ship been answered... I´m thinking Tach said before that when firing normal weapons, the turrets in range/angle will track along. But can rear turrets automatically defend your ass when obviously you can´t use forward facing weapons?

1. Yes, but not many. 2. No, turrets don´t automatically shoot. It would be helpful, but they wouldn´t hit anything with you maneuvering anyway.

I got a couple of questions. 1) Does ship size matter? As in manouverabilty compared to fighters. 2) Does the mass of ships matter in combat. ie. little buggery fighters pining at shields, and so u in ur mamoth friegther steer in to them . &quot;RAMMING SPPED!!&quot; Life is like a box of chocolates some how laced with plastic explosive.

Hey tach,did they remove the Auto-turrets that were mentioned a while back which were mentioned in one of the interviews by either Jorg or Phil ? Something about the most powerful ship would be a freighter with 5 auto turrets.

1. Yes. 2. Yes. If you´re a freighter fighting a light fighter, you might as well forget about your forward facing guns (which you might have like two of anyway). 3. I don´t remember them mentioning <i>auto </i>-turrets before, but they don´t shoot by themselves now anyway. Remember it´s a beta so it could just be a disabled feature. OH, I remember the reall in-depth preview taken last summer, at the Gencon, said something about a freighter loaded with turrets, but not the auto part. 4. Not only would your ship be moving, their ship would be moving as well. Not to mention afterburner, missiles, and so on. Don´t think auto turrets could do all that as well. Flying in a straight line and shooting anything you see works better. Freighters are designed to take punishment while dishing it out, not maneuvering. Like I´ve said, it steers like Anna Nicole Smith after Thanksgiving so maneuvering around wildly wouldn´t help anyway.

lol however, in XWA (x-wing-alliance) if you had rear facing guns, you could set them to defencive and they would target anything shooting you... and w/ a freighter youd think that theyd have that too right? afterall this is what...1200 - 2000 years in the future??
