Grr.

Don't you hate it when you end up with two enemies stuck up against your right side, and you just know that if you could eject out of the left, you'd be fine ... but all your escape pod does is shields the ship from the first missile :evil: .

And another thing. Turrets. They're damn dangerous, whichever side they are nominally on. Another of my commanders, flying a Falcon or something with no rear defences, was chasing an enemy through one of our turret rings ... you can guess the rest. They were even Drachans; didn't stop those turret commanders getting a 100% hit ratio on me :? .

Oh, yes, and hello :) . New to the forums, although I've played CM (and the other games) for a while.

all the danger is good though. theres a lot of risk in this game, even if you have a high point ship you can still get trounced!

Welcome to the forums bro! Ahh... and Sean O Conner's forums grow once again!

My thanks and best regards to all my former submitters.

Impressive, socks. Would it be possible you'd make real-world spacecraft for CM in another series, too? I mean like Mercury capsule and Space Shuttle and the likes?

sure - i like designing with this system, its fun.

i can have a go at recreating any ship - but as sean is very busy, it may not be on the site for a while.

a seperate custom ship site would really be good if someone could be bothered to administer it.
