    Ongoing Discussion Virpil Controls

    By the time the PU launches we will all be using neural interfaces and not bother with joysticks. I have attached a picture of my prototype SC control setup, I still need to tweak it a bit so there are less cables.

    Titan Suit

    I donโ€™t think the Tali will fit a 3.5m high powersuit in a module. Maybe we can fit them into the cargohold of a connie but they probably have to duck on their way out ๐Ÿ˜œ

    So private, would you like that armour in size A, B, C, D, DD, E, F or G for Gargantuan?

    Titan Suit

    Maybe it's me but it makes no sense to keep the arms of the human bundled up inside the exosuit like that. It restricts movement and doesn't allow 1 on 1 translation of movement. If you look at most exosuit implementations they usually make use of the natural arm movements of the operator and translate that into power amplified suit movements. Also their suit looks like an overengineered super expensive combat suit and not like a power loader/working suit. The one Tom Cruise is wearing looks much more like the part (or the Alien power suit).

    Titan Suit

    LOL So now they will make all Idris hallways and hatches 3.5m high and 2 meters wide ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ I hope they donโ€˜t forget to place a urinal at 1.8m high in the bathroom so the guy doesnโ€˜t have to get out of his suit to take a piss ๐Ÿ˜œ The good news is that we can now fly our bikes around the interior of the idris which should make for some interesting boarding action and I think I will be organizing bike races for the crews enjoyment on long flights. ๐Ÿ™„

    xi an New Xi An Ship?

    Personally I think CGI lacks any vision or imagination (even any common sense) in designing ships. I would appreciate a more scientific and functional approach to designing space ships. Like eh: - no wings for ships that never will see atmosphere (even in the future I doubt it will be economical to design ships that can operate both inside and outside atmospheric conditions, all spaceships will dock in orbit and shuttle their goods/people down by elevators or atmospheric craft) - more tubular designs with rotating gravity inducing sections for exploration ships instead of these artificial gravity airplane or ocean ship in space designs - large ships should never be able to land on planets, it is just silly to assume anyone would design ships that can take the stress of atmospheric entry when they donโ€™t need to . - more ugly boxy cheap functional designs and less porsche design in space (lets face it people that work in a spaceship never see the outside and only care about functionality .... - fuck aerodynamics, really there is no drag in space why all the pointy fronts? A square box or tube design makes much more sense. Also why the obsession with cockpits in the nose of the ship? Doesnโ€™t it make more sense to place the cockpit away from the front just in case you hit some space junk (or a missile or projectile)? I donโ€™t need to double park a interstellar freighter at the wallymart so why do I need all that front view? Rant off ๐Ÿ˜œ

    Dune 2019 (movie)

    The SYFY series is pretty decent but only covers a small part of storyline from the books. The books cover 5 time periods within a period of about 15000 years.

    Dune 2019 (movie)

    I read all books in the Dune universe by Frank and his son Brian and I think it is impossible to do justice to the series with just 1 movie. The dune universe is so big that it would take at least 6 seasons of a netflix series to cover the basics. <HINT>@Netflix execs<\HINT> ๐Ÿ˜œ
  11. LOL, so the Phoenix costs almost 2 million UEC less than an Aquila? Can I downgrade my connie? ๐Ÿ˜œ

    NPC crew -what do we pretend to know?

    The issue is of course how much can you afford to pay NPCs or players when they escort you and still make enough of a profit on your cargo to make it worth the risk of the cargo run. People generally want to be paid for their efforts (unless you like turreting for a few years and still own nothing more than an aurora and a cheap flight suit) because it allows them to buy nicer digs, gear, ships, etc. Sure some people will just enjoy flying around and dying just for the hell of it but I assume they will be a minority. You run quite high a risk on a cargo run that requires escort (unless it is a no cure no pay contract) because if you get intercepted you lose your cargo, your ship and you still need to pay the escorts and gunners I assume (so you want a high return on your investment as a cargo runner). On the other hand if escorts and gunners donโ€™t get paid enough then noone will be willing to do the job especially if they see the owner of the ship net a healthy profit for the same time invested. Even friends might get pissed if one of them makes a fortune and the rest gets peanuts while escorting him. Those gunners and escorts might be better off doing some bounty hunting or other missions which potentially pay more. The whole supply/demand and risk/reward of missions in SC needs to be carefully balanced and I doubt they will pull this off in the first 6 months of the PU.
