Re: No more Melee Weapons?

I didn't mean to say there shouldn't be any. It's just that an organised bayonet charge is pretty much contrary to how the AI in Firefight works.

Re: No more Melee Weapons?

I believe bayonet kills still do happen in Firefight. You can sometimes see them as cause of death in your squad overviews. Swords count as bayonet because... well, it doesn't make much of a difference to the game. The thing is that troops that have no ammo don't make bayonet charges. Their morale s...

Re: Is anyone still interested in this game?

It definitely is a one of a kind and the realism factor is very high indeed. The main weakness are some limitation in the AI, mostly about tanks.

Re: Is anyone still interested in this game?

It's good that the forums are back online, that'll reenable communication inside the community and mod discussion here.
This. I've been missing y'all.

Sorry. Not been around much, just too many other things and too little time. I'm still interested in the game, still playing my old campaign now and then, but definitely not as much as I used to. The way it seems, though, it's a general problem recently, the forums as a whole seem to have been very ...

It's been a long, long time since I've last been here. I guess a lot of the old faces aren't quite regular anymore either, but still:
To all of you, wherever you roam now: merry christmas, happy holidays and a happy new year.

mmm I'm not sure, I remember a mission where my only "kill" was an escaped ennemy. Nobody touch him and at the end of the batlle, zero were credited to me Did the hulk explode before the mission ended? Missions can end with inactive ships still around in which case you are not being credited. Also ...

I have disagree with the space predator: you don't have to finish of spent birds to be credited for them. They will self-destruct about after a while and whoever fired the last missile to hit the hull is given credit. In other words: if someone else fires at the wreck, they can steal your kill. As f...

I'm not sure that counting up your credited kills (subtract) total enemy dead really equals arty kills. for example, you know how at the end of the game a bunch of enemy bodies will pop up and be "revealed?" Well, I've noticed that sometimes they are in areas where there are no arty strikes, or onl...

You can export the designs from the game, resulting in seperate files for each ship, which you in turn can upload either to your own website or any free hosting service. For evaluation purposes, though, it pays off to let people take a look without having to download the ship, just take a screenshot...

Since you haven't shown your hand it's hard to tell whether or not anybody had the same idea yet. If the core of your idea is to make ugly ships I'm sure I've done so before, even though I might not have tried so hard.

Do you happen to know how that behaves if you troops discover bodies of enemies killed without clear visual while the mission's still running?

While I agree with the point about missiles vs airplanes and the maths obviously reasons it, I am slightly piqued about the final sentence. In space the aircraft is much more maneuverable? Where does that come from?
