    I melted mine, i realized this is not what i was expecting when i first read the brochure and hit the "purchase"button.

    Aegis Eclispe

    excuse me sir, we are just nickpicking right now. until last year i was a Mirage 2000 pilot and This is bird had what i called an obstructed cockpit, with a glass canopy. as a jet pilots i am not used to turn on the horizontal plane (yaw), but more likely i will give my bird some roll and will pull on my stick. Therefore i need to be able to watch over my head. if i can't do that, if like here we have a tunnel vision. it's obstructed. That's how i was learnt to fly ^^ but for this bird, since the eclipse is relying on instruments it's fine to me.

    welcome in! important question: Ben & Jerry's or haagen dazs?

    Aegis Eclispe

    I have no issue with a narrow view on a ship as long as long as it has a meaningfull reason (technical constraint, operation purpose,...) Here we have obstruction for the sake of obstruction (and no that's not a rule of cool) Look at the black area on the top of the screen (overhead zone): there is NOTHING in this area. Fill it with buttons, screens, actuators, LED indicators or whatever. Then we understand the different systems needed to operate the bird required extra room, and aegis took advantage of the overhead zone. THIS make sense. as of today, the overhead zone is just a black, useless, zone narrowing the pilot field of view and that's the trade off for.. nothing? edit: I saw another version of this picture where the overhead zone was showing some stuff, so... fine with me...
  5. The bombers i picked (and own): 1) polaris for it can serve other purposes as well 2) Eclipse (I certainly see myself on a final bombing run in a squardon of eclipses trying to sneak in order cripple a a capital ship). But all of the listed bombers have operating assets, and I would not advise all the time a Polaris or an eclipse. it all depends on the mission and the opposing forces. An operation is not always 100% of ships of type A, it's more a matter of picking the right ships and balancing your forces to achieve the mission. a squadron of retaliators with vanguards or gladiators + hornets to bait ennemy fighters while another squadron of sabres + eclipses flanks the ennemies, stealthy, is certainly something to consider...

    I'm all for this kind of theorycrafting since i am heavily interrested in this kind of topices as well as organizing large scale operations in star citizen myself. see the squadron i'm in, for instance. But i like to theorycraft on realistic things, and to me this it not something that will happen. I already told you in the very first reply of this topic what i thought would be the flaws obvious in your fleet, and asking for what kind of operations you wanted this battlegroup. you did not even take one second to answer. So this topic is clearly for me sorry! Still waiting for you to answer btw... edit: We are both of us into the military, I don't know what your ranking is, I'm OF4, lieutenant colonel in french air force. but this is not a competition. I mention this just to let you understand that i'm REALLY interrested in logtistcs and operations so let's have a deal. * define an opposing force * describe the mission * let's assume we have infinite assets of each type * define a number of "crew points" that we can use to achieve the mission. (Total War style) purpose of the exercice: * we build our fleet to achieve the mission * we detail the battle plan with drawings and timelines THIS would be interresting theorycrafting.

    You know what? let's ask for the fleet officers to let us know what they believe of 500+ crewmen for an operation, they know much about our assets, our organizations and people have been working hard already on these topics. If the fleet commander or sub-commanders believe it will work, i'll believe you. @Ostia @Chimaera @Operations Officer does this look realistic to you? no need to go into secret details dealing with Imlperium assets. a Yes or No would make it.

    @ J.Coren: let me call bullshit on your post too ^^ they we even the things! when people use sentences with "normally", or "you just need to"... i don't believe it. This is only my own opinion, and today there is nothing you can do to convince me, nor anything i can do to convince you, since we can't show actual facts. I just rely on my DAOC, everquest, WOW, guildwars experience when we never reached such numbers... But if it actualy becomes possibnle, i'll be very happy and my Polaris will be there

    we already had this discussion and a couple of others tried (without success) to convince you that this is not realistic due to time zones, people playing with friends, doing something else, disconnecting... it was in this thread: at that time, you were talking about 110 people and we already thought it was insane... here you think of 500+. You can theorycraft all you want, anybody with a little experience of how "raids" are working, will tell you that you will NEVER have 500+ people in one operation ( or something VERY VERY VERY special that i can't even think of).

    obvious fllaws after just reading it 10 seconds: * no Hope class endeavor for fleet medical support and respawn * no bomber (missing gladiators and retaliators, sorry polaris won't be enough for bombing runs). * not enough fighters to provide the mandatory mobility when we see that much support ship. * your starfarer are geminis I assume * cutlass red won't fit into a polaris. * the requested man power for such a battle FLEET is insane. this fleet looks like you want to build a defensive battle group (just looking at the number of hammerheads), correct? it is clearly missing offense. to answer yoru question about our ideal battlegroup: Against what? for what purpose? attack vanduuls? defend a fleet? destroy an outpost? gather minerals?
  11. Heading to Rome next Sunday for a whole week with my Wife.

    Does any Imperium member lives there and could advise restaurants/pastries/ice creams/supplies places?


    we like typical places where locals go, we don't especially want fancy places.

    We are looking for the feeling" this is real Rome".

      if you're going to go to "real Rome, I suggest a couple of things:

      -Get discreet wallets you wear under your clothes and keep your phones, money and IDs in that

      -Have your wife take her smallest handbag and only keep non-expensive cosmetics or things she can afford to have stolen

      -don't wear jewelry or expensive watches

      -wear inexpensive well-worn shoes with inserts (you will be doing a lot of climbing)


      One of my cousins graduated a few weeks ago and did the typical post-college Euro Vacation thing starting in Rome. They were all robbed at knifepoint and had to cut their trip short because everything got stolen.

      Learn from their mistake.

    Want to Buy Looking to buy 8km Land Claims.

    Hello Deonaldi, I don't have those plots alone, but if you really want one and don't have a pioneer... I have 2 pioneers, and they both include the land claims + resources for the outpost. I could spare one for you Hope that helps Best regards.

    there is absolutely no problem, we have right to disagree and i did not take bad anything people have said here. i think the zarian's arguments were just not realistic in the frame of real world, but could be valid in the frame of a video game. Imperium fleet is k+ people: OK but all around the world, not all connected at the same time. not everybody is part of the military not everybody of the online mlilitary people will be last minute operation, nor will be in the space sector... Everything smells the schedule ahead operation, I don't want to be picky on everylittle details, therefore i drop the ball here and prefer to stop the debate now our different approaches have been exposed, I will not convince you, you will not convince me, i don't see what more i could say

    Hammerhead escorting role; Weapons loadout follow-up

    ourmilitary academies and real life military experiences must have been very different to reach such different solutions. In france we can't afford the overkill strategy, because we more than often miss assets and we go with the "as less as possible'. (btw From what i have seen the US forces have more or less the same issue :D). When i had to organize operations, i had to do with the as less expensive as possible to ensure everyone comes back home safe and mission being a success. This is what i'll try to achieve in Star citizen. Of course if we forget about the economical constraints, i'll bring in a bengal to fight a bunch of cutlasses . there will be no winner in this discussion, i'd better stop here. there are different ways to organize an operation, you have exposed yours, i have exposed mine, we agree that we disagree. period. both of us are veterans, cheers mate

    Your main assumption is that "the ennemy does not know" if he does know somehow (someone talks too much, ... spies or whatever you are screwed) and your losses will be quite heavy. When you plan large operations such as the one you mention here you MUST assume that your opponent knows and you MUST expect the worst case at the risk of losing everything. i'm surprised you talk about your military experience and still "hope" for your opponent to make mistakes, or assume that "largest pirate org will not match us... " the bad general goes to war and dreams of victory, the good general goes to war and has already won". Sun Tzu This is critically dangerous way of thinking! I have never managed my squadron like this IRL, and never i'll manage it this way in this game. If the ennemy really does not know: * you need to act quick before he can organize himself. In addition to that, you need to be realistic, in a videogame there is no way you can organize a 110+ people operation assembled at the last minute. This needs advanced planning and therefore you increase your risks to have your ennemy hear about it. * Go quick? scout and go light, while your convoy try to sneak, make your best to have backup ready to scramble. Moreover, If your ennemy really does not know, why would you need a 110+ combat group? what kind of ennemy force and setup do you fear exactly? it sounds to me that your battlegroup is built to fight an organized force including bombers and capital ships... In this case your scenario will likely be a failure since you'll engage your own forces in a heavy fight without knowing your opponent setup, AND he will have the alpha strike + surprise effect.
