    RSI - Phoenix (Constellation)

    Obviously the one-way glass would be the type where you could see out, but no one could see in.... and to be honest, it might even be a combination of multiple types.... like electrochromatic, dim-able one-way glass, that when switched to opaque, can still display the environment outside using some form of HD display.

    Probably because (if this was real) the windows would be either one-way glass(or the SF equivalent of glass), solid walls with HS screens simulating the outside, or electrochromatic dim-able glass (or the SF equivalent of glass).

    What about Terrapin's instead of Carrack's?

    Sataisfactory Trailer

    I call this game the "Lorax Game" because basically I see the story line of a typical campaign pretty much following the "You Need a Thneed" concept/story arc.

    Reverse the Verse - Obscure Reference

    LOL... I was actually the person who posted on it in the Youtube comments, but sadly it wouldn't let me link the Youtube clip from the movie like you did.

    Welcome to SCB/Imperium... You might not realize it yet, but you've found a place with a lot of kindred spirits/fleets. Don't worry about getting lost in the shuffle, just hop on TeamSpeak sometime, or take part in the discussions on SCB (forums) & Discord, and before you know it, you'll be a regular.

    I hate to rain on your parade my friend, but I don't think they're allowing us to reserve names, but if they do, then I beat you to the punch almost four years ago (back when the Idris was still a "Corvette")... For the proof my friends, we need to set the way back machine to December 2013, back when a lovely lady named Chelsea ran the Concierge dept. at CIG, before Blizzard lured her husband away.... .... because yeah, I'm just that big of a nerd too! P.S. Great minds think alike!

    Game of Thrones

    Jumping into the fray myself, I also read an article pre-GoT many, many years ago, discussing the evolutionary possibility of dragons. To distill it down to the most important/relevant detail, the article argued that dragons were an evolutionary impossibility, because they are essentially hexapedal (i.e. 4 legs + 2 wings = 6 limbs) whereas all other mammalian and reptilian life on earth (and in most fantasy worlds) is quadrupedal (2 legs + 2 arms = 4 limbs).... Even evolved humans that are considered "bipedal" still have 4 limbs. So the only way a dragon could evolve is if either the wings were integrated into the arms, like most birds, bats, and flying dinosaurs OR if it essentially was only a glider and stretched out a lifting surface between its front and rear legs (like a flying squirrel or some other small lizards).... So while GoT dragons certainly don't conform with mythological dragons, they are far more evolutionarilly (is that a word?) plausible.

    Don't read too much into it. The simple fact is that CIG has stated that they will not force ships to remain in game once the player/owner of the ship logs out, while simultaneously they have also stated that they will not keep the hangar space on your (Capital Ship) tied up by ships that are not logged into the game. How exactly this mechanic will be handled, has not really been specified by CIG yet.

    *Sigh* you REALLY need to check your sources.... As I said previously, the demobilization of the São Paulo was announced "recently" and you are correct that it was announced in February (2/14/17 to be exact), but where you are incorrect, is the fact that the decommissioning was not completed instantaneously on the same day that it was announced. While the demobilization/decommissioning process has "started" it will not be completed until 2020 (when the planes that currently operate off of the São Paulo will be transitioned to Sao Pedro da Aldeia Base) you can find articles regarding it here and here. HOWEVER @Reavern is also correct, none of that (the obsession with catapults) really matters when it comes to space combat, with ships that can fly/move in any direction (plus the fact that none of these ships use catapults). In addition, as I mentioned previously, there is the distinct possibility that ships will be able to spawn and de-pawn on hangar pads (inside the Idris) as the players that park their ships on those pads log in and out of the game.

    You might want to check your source for this quote too.... It might have been accurate once upon a time, but the Chinese will be using catapults on both the Type 002 and the Type 003 class of aircraft carriers.... Although admittedly neither of these ships are in active use yet, and the Type 003 has only recently been announced. Also the Brazilian Navy still operates (although they recently announced plans to demobilize it the very near future) the São Paulo, which started its life as the French Clemenceau-class aircraft carrier.... Which also uses catapults.

    To expand on some earlier points... The Idris is very much a ship built around team-based gameplay. However, with Imperium we have a very large team that, we are going to do our best to organize and work together, making these ships much easy to operate within the Org than they would be for solo players or small(er) Orgs. So, don't worry as much about the crew requirements (that's my job) worry about whether the Idris is the kind of ship with the type of gameplay that you want to play. If you do purchase an Idris with the Armada Pack, or during an Anniversary sale, please remember that you will be purchasing an Idris-P.... which is undoubtedly a potent ship, but it does lack the spinal mount railgun (and one other turret) that you saw in the GamesCom video. In exchange, the Idris-P is supposed to be faster, and have more cargo capacity (what exactly the final differences will be isn't 100% certain, but those are the big ones), but if you have your heart set on that railgun, it IS supposed to be available out in the 'verse as an add-on upgrade kit.... and Imperium will certainly work with any of our Idris_P owners to help them obtain the upgrade kit if they want it. Ultimately there is no right or wrong answer.... it's all about the style of gameplay that most appeals to you... I love Capital Ships... which is why I bought an Idris when I could, but there are other players that will be far happier just flying a fighter around and getting into dogfights, while others want to be "space truckers" and haul cargo... decide what you want to do in the game, and let that dictate whether you purchase a Polaris, and Idris, or any other ship.... and if you need crew.... just let me (or anyone else in Ops) know, and we'll see what we can do to help. Regarding FIFO, there MIGHT (keep in mind we don't really know anything for sure) be one possible way around this. We were told in the write-up for the Endeavor, that ships can be spawned in the hangar of that ship.... it is possible that a wide variety of different ships could be stored within an Idis.... and then whether because of a "ship spawn/despawn" mechanic, or simply by the mechanic of one player with "ship X" logging off the game, while a different player with "ship Y" logs in (that had previously been parked in the exact same spot).... while I recognize that both of these are really more of a work around, rather than the solution that you desire, the fact is that while the Idris is damn big, it still isn't a true carrier in the sense that the Bengal-class is, so some limitations & compromises will always be made. With the Polaris, you really will only have one choice period, since the hangar on the Polaris can only accommodate one ship (and not necessarily some of the ships that the Idris could hold either). I hope that helps

    THAT is the advantage in being a member of a large, organized, & team-focused Org like Imperium. While we might have trouble finding crew for ALL of our (many) Capital Ships, I have no doubt that we have the manpower to keep quite a few of them deployed on a continuous basis.... Finding 6 players (interested in working together on an Idris) that are willing & able to log in at the same time, from among 4000+ isn't really that hard at all.
