Aegis Reclaimer

Recommended Posts

"the turret seats rotate" confused me because I thought on the floor by those rotating seats I thought i saw D2 and D4 and assumed that ment Drone.  But it might be similar seats.

"The grinding room had a big door you process scrap through"  huh?  How come i see animations of small scrap falling through those 6 small doors in the walls of the grinding room?

Engineering deck == Sub Deck  - Seems the artists use either term to refer to the same deck and in one scene you can see a sign labeling a ladder changes from one name to the other proving they are one in the same.

I'm pleased to hear them say players complained about other ships layouts not making sense (starfarer FPS maze) and it was a priority from the start to make a good layout.

That whole thing confuses me as well. What I think is happening is that scrap falls out of the small doors, the grinder turns it into bits and then those bits get fed through the door in the back... somehow.

This seems to me the best description of what they meant, though you’d think the scrap would get pulled through the shredder downwards and then fed into a smelter by some unseen process, underneath the spinning blades.

If scrap is supposed to magically stay afloat on top of the spinning blades.. that would be.. unrealistic.

Due to gravity (which directs the scrap down from the 6 doors/funnels) would cause small bits of debris to pile up underneath and would eventually cause issues for the grinder... Unless there’s a unseen process underneath that feeds said debris into the smelter.. which kind of negates the need for Scrap getting fed through the back door up top...?

we really need a good explanation from CIG...

Today's sneak peek does not state what ship it belongs to.

But I have a good suspicion that the engine room on the Reclaimer has 2 decks and the above photo is the lower deck of the engine room.  The below image is a verified Reclaimer engine room.  And if you look the railings don't match, but the railings are pretty basic cubic railings and might not have been finished yet.  The theame of caution stripes fits the bill.  Plus if you look through the grating it looks like it might resemble the top of the teaser.

The Railings are completely different. In design and colour scheme. Also the hue from the lighting is clearly different one is pale blue-ish and the Reclaimer is red-ish

We were told that the same style room for engineering, but different style for each ship type EG Idris, Reclaimer and Javelin are three of the known Aegis XLarge ships

We got a sneak peek at the reclaimer during the Christmas Special.  It was a brief exterior view, no real animations, the claw was missing revealing a hole where it belongs, but the entry ladder is not extended for once! (its probably missing along with the claw).

If you look closely you can also see that the landing gear on the main thrusters are extended as well. I think it’s obvious that the animations are still being worked on.

the tractorbeam tech isn’t in yet either, though they made it look allright. At one point they’re going right through the derelict tho ;p

      Rumor is it is a salvage ship. It supposedly harvests human and ship remains!
       
      If you click the picture it will bring up a larger version. If you check out the "humans" you'll notice they are Vanduul, with their weird little legs!
