    New Road Map for 2018

    Let be real here. BMM is the first Banu ship and it is huge, they don't know how long that going to take. Carrack is the top of the line long range explorer, It lots of thinks on that ship they have not worked out. Like the med bay just to name one. The Orion is what 340 meters now and they are still working on mining and refining. Until they work out how they want that to work it no point take every part of that s**t to 100% complete. You could have to redo it later. That a waist of time and money. We all what them as soon as we can. But the longer we wait the better they be. And just because they are not on the list don't mean we want see any of them this year. Just they might know when they be out. Or if they can get them out but they be close. If we do see them it be around 3.3 or 3.4.

    My simpit (not finished)

    That looks great. Wish I could build something like that. It just me but I would not like having the mouse under the keyboard. Never tried it but think it might drive me mad. What are you thinking/want to change?

    New - Vanduul Blade

    It is the smallest fastest Vanduul fighter. I don't not think is worth the £250 price, other that it looks cool and be nice to fly now and then.

    Land Grants

    Drakin is right. It not much of a advantage in having them. Only real advantage I see is the UEC you save not having to buy it in game can go to building on the land. I think that is where most of the cost of having land will be. Setting up mine, refineries and areas to live, and just other buildings you need.
  12. I can see you are a Star Wars fan. But other than being groups in Star Wars they are not anything to do with space. Republic, A state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch. Last time I look that don't fit what we are. As we don't have elections for the leaders. Also I don't think we are going to have a president. Also not much to do with space. Federal, having or relating to a system of government in which several states form a unity but remain independent in internal affairs We are also not part of a government nor are we a state. Federation, a group of states with a central government but independence in internal affairs or an organization or group within which smaller divisions have some degree of internal autonomy. Ok the second meaning fit us a little better. But still not got anything to do with space, other than Star Wars. Rebel, a person who rises in opposition or armed resistance against an established government or leader. This one could not fit us less. We are mostly a Industrial and Exploration Org. That knows if you want to do that and not get pushed around and attacked every 5 min, you need a strong military to put people off attacking you. But this Org has nothing to do with fighting the government (UEE). We are more help the UEE fight. So not even close. If we picked that it just because it sounded good to some people. Imperial, relating to an empire. I think Tac would be happy if you could make him the empire of the Star Citizen universe. But after the last ones I think you have a up hill fight to put him in power. Also it a large Org that has a name close to that. I don't see how they have anything to do with space. They are just names for Organizations or Structure for organizations/states. I like things simply. If we start call the fleet "Imperial Fleet", what happens when we have to talk about the Imperium fleet that could be close by. Or even working with us for some reason. What wrong with military fleet 1, 2 or 3. It easy to remember and even new people will know what you are on about.

    Crytek Money Grab

    It thousands of lawsuit filed every year by company's. A lot of them are baseless and do not win, lots never even get to court. Bankrupt company's do this all the time. Last grab for money before they go under. Crytek is just trying to make some bad press and hoping CIG give them a little money to fck off, to stop the bad press. That what I think Crytek is trying to do. It been over a year from when star citizen changed over to Lumberyard. If they had a contract, why did they not file a lawsuit sooner. As they would of known before us that CIG was changing to Lumberyard. So they would of had even longer to file the lawsuit. If CIG didn't have the rights to work on SQ42 why did they not say sooner (like when CIG said they was going to Lumberyard). After all this is a company that do not have the money to pay stuff for months. You think they might of went "wait a second you don't have the rights to do that, You have to pay us to do that". So they could pay their staff, but no. It just smells like a money grab so the Directors have some money to leave with. As for the Facewear tech and sharing the code. That down to when they started working with them. Because if it started after CIG signed the deal with Amazon then Crytek don't have a leg to stand on. If CIG started working with them before that. What work they was doing with each other. If the other company had rights to work on the Cryengines or even if they had to do work in Cryengine. If CIG gave them any info on the base Cryengine. Or even if they need the code at all to do the work they did. I don't see why CIG would have to give Facewear that info on Cryengine as it is old engine and the info should be easy to find. CIG might need to give Facewear info on the changes they made to the engine but Crytek do not own that code. As for SQ42 and CIG not having the rights to use the Cryengine to make assets for SQ42. We just have to wait and see. But if they didn't have the rights to work on two games. The question is when was SQ42 and star citizen first sold with out each other. As long as they are being sold as part of the same package they can be counted as part of the same game. As the two games are part of the same universe using a lot of the same assets and was sold as part of the same package (but that a long shot). Also as all assets in SQ42 is also being used in star citizen, they can claim that assets was made for star citizen and was not made just for SQ42. Also as all assets CIG have made have been getting update and have been reworked to make them look better and work with item system 2.0. Non of the assets that was around before CIG owned the rights (2013 or 2016 Lumberyard) would ever make it in to sq42 at any point. So they was not be SQ42 assets, they would just be unused game assets that could of been for star citizen just as easy as sq42. And the final assets would of been made on Lumderyard not Cryengine. Crytek is just Crying out because they are going under. SQ42 been around for year and they have not said a word about CIG not having the rights to work on it. CIG left them a year ago for lumberyard and they still did not say anything. It just a desperate grab for money. From a company that knows they are going under and don't care anymore what people think, because they know no one will buy Cryengine at this point.

    My New Stream

    So that about 11pm GMT. Good luck with the stream.

    Anvil Lance

    I say maneuvering thrusters. I only say that because looking at the top model you only really have one main engine that could turn to face down, like on the Terrapin. As all the other Anvil ships use main engines or maneuvering thrusters, So you cant use something like RSI where they have large fans. Also you have to put maneuvering thrusters on the ship anyway so it can fly, so it could save on some work by using them. How big is the ships with the barrel not extended? little bigger than the ARGO for the main body of the ship

    Questions for Guild Meeting

    We was doing a ship list forums.tacticaladvance.co.uk/topic/3964-tac-full-member-list-and-full-ship-roster/ but we are hoping people CIG do it for us on Spectrum. As everyone changes their ships so often and most people would add their ships and almost never update the list. If we would have a member/officer to do this it would be a fulltime job. Even then it take people updating the list. Also somethings like military capital ship we might not want on the list for everyone to see. Also some people might not want other people to see what ship they have. On TS we do have illustrates next to the name say if the are a officer, director or even if they are just a member of a division. We even had it on the forums for a little time but after the update I don't think they are working or they been turned off to be worked on.

    Anvil Lance

    It will still have recoil. Newton's third law of motion, for every action there is an opposite reaction. You would not have friction because the round would not touch the barrel. But the force of the round being push out the front, would be the same force pushing the ship back. Having the engine behind the gun would stop most if not all of that. I don't know it you have worked out where to put the maneuvering thrusters. But have you thought about putting 1 on top and one on bottom of the barrel to stop the vertical recoil. Also it might help with aiming. Thinking about A8

    Anvil Lance

    Could be because of the slow rate of fire. Every time you fire the gun it turns you around so you can run away after every shot.

    Q&A: Anvil Hawk

    The Hawk and Warlock EMP come under weapons. Like you said. But I still think the Ravens EMP a size 1. I think it just think take a size 4 missile rack to hold a size 1 EMP. At most it a size 2, I don't see it being able to hold a EMP as big as the one in the Warlock. Problem is the stat page has so many things that wrong, you never know what right. We just have to hope they work it out over the next couple months and keep it up to date.

    Q&A: Anvil Hawk

    Sorry I didn't see where it said the EMP on the raven was size 4. As far as I know it is no size 1, 2, 3 or 4 now for components, It is just small, medium, large and capital. It a component attached to a size 4 missile mount. Not that it a size 4 component. I think the Hawk EMP has the same effect as one of the EMP's on the Raven because they are both small EMP's just the Raven comes with two, and the Hawk comes with one. Sorry you are right they are like weapon sizes numbers. Thought they was more like components. But still do not say they are size 4 just that it has 2 of them. The Avenger warlock has a size 4 EMP but that takes up all the back room. So I still don't think the Ravens are size 4. As the Avenger EMP generator looks a lot bigger.

    Q&A: Aegis Hammerhead

    I think you are right. No point fighting a losing battle if you don't have to. The quality of the AI modules will 100% come down to cost. They will also never hit everything (I don't think cig will want that). I also think that CIG might make it so Chaff and Flares (or something else) will affect how good they are for a short times. Like with the missiles where they break the lock. Also think the range will not be amazing. Even if you can have all 6 turrets run by AI modules, I think we should have at least a couple gunners on the ship. To replace crew if they need to get off. Say the pilot needs to get off, the Co-pilot becomes the Pilot, and one of the gunners move up to Co-Pilot. Then the AI module takes over for the gunner. As long as a AI turret can be taken over by any player or NPC that sit in it, I don't see why this would not work. Having more people on the ship means you have more people to help repair the ship if needed. And if you do get boarded by Vanduul or pirates, you have more people to fight them off. Also if someone needs to get off because their kids need them it no problem.
