I suppose these things must :)


I put together my own Yatari light stealth bomber and I'm quite liking the results.

Ha my squad just hype-spaced into the middle of a medium turret ring on their 1st mission, made for an interesting couple of turns, not the best time to be piloting a wasp though.

This one hit me today: An ultralight, cheap, fast missile load that costs 1-2 credits and has small warheads(1Mton or less) that are really maneuverable so they track well, and carry a decent fuel load. Wouldn't you be able to use them to locate hidden ships? Somtimes I fire geenees into an area I ...

Fighter Ace, fuel limts would be insane Insanely Awesome! You'd need to be really carefull about how much you ac/decelerated and running out of fuel on a tight evasive turn would be brutal. Fighters would have to balance fuel load against manuevering and you could blead fuel after being hit. Would m...

Talking about imagination, for me it makes perfect sense that the factories don't actually do anything. I mean: if you were a factory worker and the whole facility was about to get bombed, would you just keep building those missiles? I for one would take a seat over in that rescue pod already (must...

My opinion off Yatari missiles is at an all time low. I was flying backwards and fired some to cover my retreat hoping to dissade the enemy squadron chasing me off of my bombing run and they ran out of fuel at a perfect standstill and were just floating there (it essentialy mined a pathway between t...

As for Starbases and Factories, yeah, they're pointless. But Engine Factories only cost 37 anyway..[/quote] Given how much my engines get shot off I'm glad they're there. Imagine if our ships relied only on the repair bots trying to cobble them back together, Cm units getting more ragtag with each r...

I've only had intermitant success with that but I think its because I'm normally using lower spec ships.



Oh if the computer is so unhappy with Plectrons then are yatari bomber wingmen more efficient?

I like the idea of extra squadrons. What if they became available for purchase only when one of your wingmen got a gold cross? The little guy did so well he bacomes a squad leader under your command (if you can spare the 50 or so credits). If it worked this way then it wouldn't just be a satisfying ...

It's a bit alturistic but do you fire missiles to force maneuvers i.e firing of your oponents starboard to force them into a couple of your wingmates?

Could be politics? reassure the civilians that they are defended; or to make sure another segment of military command can't reassign your defences. I mean you've got to wonder about commands sense of humour when you have a bombing mission and all that's available are fighter types when there were pl...
