    Tactical Advance reacted to SleeppingWolf in Q&A: Crusader Hercules Starlifter   
    https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/engineering/16589-Q-A-Crusader-Hercules
     
    How can an outpost defend itself against a bombing from a Hercules A2?
    Players can protect themselves from air attacks by setting up anti-air defenses. As far as destroying an outpost goes, that’s something we’re looking into, along with the ramifications it would have on the law system.
     
    What is Medium and Heavy Armor when talking about ships?
    Light, medium, and heavy indicate the general degree of additional protection the armor gives to the ship. Each armor type offers different resistances, but it also has an impact on the weight of the ship.
     
    Does it have beds, a bathroom, and a kitchen?
    All variants have three beds for the main crew, as well as a small kitchen area and a single toilet/shower combo. The Hercules is not made for long comfortable journeys through space, so it doesn’t need anything more luxurious.

    Does the Hercules have entrances other than the large ramps, or will the cargo bay have to be decompressed every time you need to exit the ship?
    Players can get into the Hercules either using the ramps or via a small lift around the middle of the cargo bay. From there, you can either go to the ground level, the cargo bay, or the cockpit.
     
    Can we expect to see bomb racks and bays for other ships too (like the Retaliator), or are bombs limited to the A2 and other future ground assault ships and vehicles?
    At the moment, only the Hercules A2 and future ground assault ships are planned to have bombs. However, we’re looking at ways of allowing a few select ships we’ve already announced or released (like the Retaliator) to transport and use bombs, although they might not be able to carry the impressive S10-sized bombs like the Hercules.

    For cargo running, what advantage does the C2 Hercules have over the cheaper Starfarer that uses Cargo pods in place of Fuel pods?
    External cargo pods, as featured on the Starfarer, are more exposed and vulnerable than those on the Hercules. Plus, the Starfarer isn’t made to transport vehicles, which is the main point of the Hercules.
     
    How do S10 MOABs compare to S10 torpedoes?
    In terms of size, the bombs are larger than the torpedoes. The bombs are also unguided, offer a wider damage radius, and higher damage. Like missiles and torpedoes, bombs might have different specs in the future for different damage types and situations.
     
    How do the interior living quarters compare between the ships? Are the C-2’s more liveable compared to the spartan cabins of the M2 & A2?
    In terms of functionality, the interior living quarters are the same between all variants of the Hercules Starlifter that use the M2 as the base. However, like some other ships having military variants, it’s possible that the materials might differ.

    Can you tell us more about the “Six Hardpoints of Countermeasure” of the Hercules?
    Like every other ship, the Starlifter has several countermeasure launchers at strategic placements around the body. Due to its size and shape, the Starlifter has six launchers installed, compared to the four of the Starfarer. There are two near the rear cargo bay, two next to the landing gear, and two on the rear wings.
     
    If you drop a gravity assisted cluster bomb in space, can you create a minefield?
    It depends on how we make the bomb detonation work. Currently, we’re thinking that they will trigger on impact. However, we will look at proximity and time later on.
     
    What is the smallest size pad that the Hercules can land on, and will it fit onto the pads of the small/medium rest stops and orbital stations that are coming into the game?
    The Hercules Starlifter, like other ships of similar size, will only fit on large landing pads.

    How does the C2 ‘medium’ armor compare to the Starfarer-Gemini ‘upgraded’ armor?
    The Starfarer Gemini’s upgraded armor is a heavy model, akin to the Starlifter M2. The Starlifter C2’s medium armor is similar to the regular Starfarer’s armor.
    How can the C2 survive a defensive engagement with only 2xM coolers to cool 2xL shield generators when similar ships (Starfarer/Gemini, Genesis, Caterpillar, Carrack) ALL have 2xL coolers to only cool 1xL shield generator?
    While it’s better for anyone flying a C2 to have an escort nearby, this configuration should still last long enough to get away or call for help. The other ships mentioned all have to use their power in ways that the Starlifter doesn’t, be it to run life support, computers, or other modules).

    What are the specific roles of the three crewmen on the M2?
    The crew roles on the M2 are similar to other ships of the same configuration: one pilot, one co-pilot that has access to some of the remote turrets, and a dedicated gunner that has full control of the turrets.
     
    Is the cargo-space in the A2 usable for normal cargo if the bombs aren’t equipped?
    The A2 has half the cargo space of the M2. When bombs aren’t equipped, the bomb ordnance system is still present, so it’s impossible to store cargo in this area. However, you can still put 234 standard cargo units (SCU) in the front half of the ship (that’s if you don’t decide to put a Tumbril Nova tank there instead!).

    Tactical Advance got a reaction from solarfire in RSI authentication - All Members   
    All,
     
    I am pleased to announce we have completed the first steps in the RSI authentication tool.
     
    What's an RSI authenticated member?  Someone who is in the Tactical Advance organization on the RSI website.  (You must have us as your main organization for you to be approved)
     
    What does this bring to the Tactical Advance Organization 
     
    This gives us greater control over who can see what content on the forum.  For example, currently if anyone signs up (not a member) they can see all division content.  Going forward only RSI authenticated members will be able to see divisional forums. Who's in the Tactical Advance Organization?.  Prior to the RSI authentication tool we did not know unless we matched the whole RSI website against the forum and TeamSpeak manually,  logistically unpractical for a large organization.  The RSI authenticated member tool automates this for us across the RSI, our forum and TeamSpeak. This also adds greater security and remove manual intervention. Who can access organization areas on  TeamSpeak?. Currently, anyone can access all the rooms, going forward only RSI authenticated members will be able to access organization related rooms.  
    Adding the RSI authenticated member tool makes roles redundant, we can now refocus these people on in-game activities.
     
    In addition to the above, we have been working on improving the new member experience.  Getting started in Star Citizen and signing up to an organization is not a straightforward process and can seem fragmented.  For this reason we introduced a wizard that will guide new members through the 4-step process.  This is a work in progress and we will be adding more content over time.
     
    I am really pleased with the progress we have made over the past few years.  We will be the best organization out there, leading the way in technology and at the same time creating the best experience for our members.  A big thank you to all the people who helped make this organization what it is today.

    Pictures taken by FriendCalledFive during the last ORG Event. Notice the Geycat which was driven into and parked in the back of my Cutlass Black. I then went in and bought some cargo at a terminal and the game calculated the loss of cargo space from the Greycat and gave me at the terminal the reduced amount of cargo space available.
