    Aegis Eclispe

    Back in ye olde days, to mine the first steel, miners had to punch rocks to get the steel for the first pickaxe. True story.

    Aegis Eclispe

    First off, we know there is no water in space. That does not make the comparison less valid. Second you mentioned the point why torpedoes should hurt more yourself : good point defense can destroy torpedoes. And the eclipse has paper thin defences. Having torpedoes be so bad that you need a squadron of eclipses do several passes to destroy a Reclaimer, which is not even a battleship, makes it an objectively bad ship. It makes the Tali even worse because, sure, it can deliver more torpedoes in one volley, but it is slow and has no element of surprise like the Eclipse.

    I thought torpedoes were supposed to penetrate shields, not impact on them? Also, I sort of agree, but one Eclipse should be able to severely damage/cripple a Reclaimer by itself with its 3 torpedoes. This makes it so that a single Eclipse can move in on unguarded ships, cripple them, and allow boarders to take over the ship or something like that.

    F8 Lightning

    I have to agree with Devil Khan on this, however. The F8 is supposed to be a carrier based superfighter, a bed would only increase its size or take up space otherwise used for engines/weapons. What I would support, however, is the seat being able to fold back so you can sort of sit/lie back and log out that way.

    I switched my harbinger for an Eclipse. It kind of grew on me. Some of the footage of Eclipse' one-shotting connies is super satisfying. EDIT : Well after trying it out in the PTU and in AC, I'm a lot less sure. Good thing I didn't apply the CCU yet.

    I think that CIG selling the Star Citizen equivalent of the TIE Defender will spark outrage. Yknow, as much as selling the most elite exclusive fighter in the game should. And I think they realize that. No worries

    "You may be a professional in this field who does this for a living, but I read something on the internet!!!1!" This whole thread is a goldmine. I wonder when the mods will shut it down for going off-topic. To reply to you further, again, the USS Enterprise example. If I mount the nacelles at a different angle, it's still a ripoff. If I make the saucer slightly eliptical, it's still a ripoff. If I paint it a different tinge of gray, it's still a ripoff. The reason why most farm equipment looks the same is because - in the real world - it needs that shape for a function. While one could argue that the same is true for fictional ships, that still doesn't make it less of a ripoff. Things that fly in the real world don't necessarily hold up legally for fictional spaceships.

    No offence VoA, but I think you are being idealistic and unrealistic. Probably you will find there are plenty of 'experts' that will say anything if it means they get paid, or even if they get a few seconds of fame. This is, of course, assuming your blanket statement about said 'experts' being in defence of CIG is correct in the first place.

    Because a lot of car manufacterers are actually owned by a handful of brands. That's why most of them look similar. Shows what you know, I suppose. Also, the role is not important. To take Reavern's example, if you make a cargo hauler instead of an explorer that looks like a down-scaled Enterprise, it's not gonna get past copyright laws. At any rate, to quote Wilhuff Tarkin, this bickering is pointless. Both of you are just slinging your "I am an expert at"'s about, but since neither of you are going to go to court for/against CIG, we'll never know who'll win.
