That would explain the need for wormholes.

Perhaps hyperspace is associated with sterility which is why it's used only as a last resort? I must admit I feel less manly after using hyperspace :)

Errm... would be great if you told us what the poll was about? Favourite missile? That pretty much depends on the situation and the primary purpose of your craft. I personally prefer daycorns for close combat and Plectrons for attack missions. In my opinion Yataris are a little trickier to aim when...

I mean't after their beloved leader goes belly up :D there was another thread that asked: If CM could be changed so that undamaged fighters didn't hyperspace out after the leader was shot down or if e ejects. I was speculatin' on the very nature of the universe and the fact that perhaps your squad m...

A tactical discussion: Missiles

the missile discussion in the bomber page looks like its on the verge of something interesting. There is probably an old thread on missiles in the archives... Still I wanted to ask about missile techniques and technicalities. I know they don't turn before they thrust (?) and that they have a limited...

I just got the game so feel free to add me to your list or msn if you like.

I'll warn you though, I'll either be constantly online or offline for long stretches so it depends when you catch me.

I should be on quite a bit with nothing to do till the 11th

Shot in the back (again)

I was just pounding a coloniser when my second in command shot a plectron through the back of my ship. I guess my squadron has a new boss. :cry: Ever wondered if the reason your squad mates normally hyperspace out so quickly is because your game self chooses cowards who won't try and nock him of in ...

Firing four Plecs at an enemy ship and wiping the ship, the escape pod, and the ship behind it in that single volley. nice. though the escape pod might be a little cold. I remember once an enemy puma shot off almost all of my components and downed a wingman but ejected under the pressure of my squa...

I didn't appreciate the need for thrust in a dog fight at first. But ever since the computer suckered a couple of my ships by letting me take the lead (couldn't slow down in time and they got nailed) I've been working it into my designs as a more practicle element. as for the bombers I'm still rejig...
