  1. I didn't post screen shots, I posted an entire video (from which many of those screen shots were taken)... that was different enough that I felt it deserved it's own post.
  2. Speaking of the MISC Prospector....
  3. If my name was Dave, you'd have had me (although the "I'm sorry, I can't do that Dave." is somewhat more famous.... as is " Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.") But for my money, I like: " Just what do you think you're doing, Dave? " and " Dave, stop. Stop, will you? Stop, Dave. Will you stop Dave? Stop, Dave. " Nothing like an AI lobotomy at the hands of the human the AI tried to kill to put a smile on your face
  4. Screw that, wake me up for the Butlerian Jihad! He who controls The Spice, controls the universe! P.S. Yes @Fizzlefuse, I just out-nerded you!
  5. That sounds like something that would be pretty cool to see.... combining a love of two great things... Star Citizen and dessert! You should post a link to your Twitch Stream or Youtube here in the thread, so that people can find you easier. Oh. and welcome to Imperium!
  6. Hey guys, I just picked up a Steam Controller during the Steam Holiday Sale, and I was wondering if anyone has used a Steam Controller for Star Citizen? I'll probably want to stick with my HOTAS for Arena Commander (maybe?) but I was wondering if a gamepad-style controller (and the Steam Controller in particular) might work better during the first-person sections of Star Citizen (FPS combat, and simply running around planet/station-side before you get in your ship & fly off). Since I've never done dual-controllers before, is it hard to switch between a gamepad and HOTAS? Can you run both controller schemes simultaneously?
  7. Everyone thinks that the US Defense Department wastes Billions of dollars every year, without doing anything for the common man, but that's just not true! Every year, NORAD (the North American Aerospace Defense Command), tackles two of the eternal questions that have plagued every parent with small children: Where is Santa? When will he (finally) get here? In case you were wondering (or have small ones at home that are wondering), you can find the answers here: http://www.noradsanta.org/
  8. Nah... I knew it was coming
  9. LOL... I hate you sooooo much!
  10. Nooooo... Don't leave us! We miss you already! (and sorry for getting you confused with Painmiester)
  11. What was the First Rule about Ship Counts? But seriously (actually I was serious) I saw you post this before in another thread (I think, hopefully I don't have you confused with someone else). We didn't get as many as you seemed to think (a number of people posting in the Javelin thread weren't even Imperium Members), but we did respectable. I will undoubtedly be asked to publish updated (rough) numbers sometime soon. Maybe in the 2016 Year-end report. Until then, I wouldn't go around speculating about our ship counts (especially in a PUBLIC part of the forums!)
  12. The First Rule about Ship Counts: We don't (publicly) talk about ship counts! The Second Rule about Ship Counts: We don't (publicly) talk about ship counts! The Third Rule about Ship Counts: Any guesses? (I'll give you a hint, it rhymes with "We don't (publicly) talk about ship counts!") HOWEVER... We do (occasionally) reveal a little bit of information, in order to give our members a small idea as to the numbers and scale of Imperium. Here is a quote from the 2015 "Year In Review" report that was release last January (almost a year ago)... Obviously it's a little bit dated by now, with our numbers having (probably) gotten at least a little bit larger (I believe Imperium has grown by roughly 10-15% since then) and we certainly didn't give out exact numbers (for "security reasons") but if you want some numbers, here they are:
  13. Lol... Not nearly that many Destroyers... But fear not, we've done quite well in the prior two sales as well, so when it comes to Capital Ships of any kind.... We're definitely not hurting. [emoji6] Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  14. I think I now understand some of your confusion @Syrius. Actually it won't be hard at all to have your Javelin in use while you do something else. One of the things that they've been very clear about, is that as the owner of a ship (in this case a Javelin-class Destroyer), you can assign (and later revoke) certain "permissions" to other players, in terms of who can take what roles and/or positions on your ship... So, all you would need to do is to assign the correct permissions to the people that you're willing to allow to use your Javelin, and then you can go off and do whatever you want, whether that is acting as a crewman (or commander) on that Javelin, or flying off to some distant part of space in a small scout ship to look for Jump Points to chart and asteroids to mine.
  15. Well, we might be able to test size 5 lasers (and other Size 5 weapons, once they're available) if they can get mounted on to the Starfarer... But before we can test their suitability for Naval Gunfire Support, we would need CIG to implement their procedural planet tech... Which we aren't expecting to see until Alpha 3.0 Now having said that, it's not the Size 5 lasers that excite me for NGS... In my mind, that would be like trying to use a 30-35mm Oerlikon found on a modern naval Corvette (usually for air defense) for NGS. Sure, nothing wants to get hit by that gun directly... But it is wasn't ever intended for taking out another (military) naval ship, much less for shore bombardment. No, if I'm talking NGS, I'm either talking about a high-end missile/torpedo salvo, or some serious "heavy metal" like the Size 7 turrets on a Javelin-class Destroyer or the "zestroyer" rail gun on the Idris-M class Frigate. Sending a few rounds from one of those downrange (or in this case, down the gravity well) of any conflict should make any enemies seriously contemplate their desire to be elsewhere & reevaluate their poor life choices.
