Well, as has been pointed out, there's not been much news on RA lately, so let me bring you up to speed...

Right now, CommanderJones' modelling and texturing time is being applied toward Chapter 3 of the Outpost Story. Once he has everything done for that, I believe his next project is more ships for RA.

On my end of things, I've been somewhat hampered by the fact that I have received rather less feedback on the 0.51 patch than I had hoped for. Image In particular, I'm wondering if people like the new dumb-fire missiles on the torpedo destroyer, or if you liked it better the old way. Could you do that for a brother? Could you help a brother out?!! Image

I think that the DFMs are good, keep'em, we'll just have to rotate around with our Miss corvs and Miss frigs

Wow, Syntax, you couldn't possibly pack any more SF references into that sig pic, could you? Image

In the interests of full disclosure, let me just say that the weekly meeting that CommanderJones and I have to work on the mod and our other assorted projects has just resulted in something of a temporal setback for both Chapter 3 of the Outpost story and the resumption of work on RA. Hopefully, though, both will be worth the wait... Image

actually i think that the dumb fire mis on the destroyer are good and that mis corvs should have limited lock on ability (i.o.w .they stay with them as long as no sharp maneuvers are done)

Not really, although it is somewhat the way things already are--missiles do miss sometimes...

I could try, but I like the existentialist stuff more which rules out SW and ST. Hmmm...
Maybe there is space for a Cthulhu fhtagn!
Or perhaps BOW TO THE AVATAR!
Big ups to all the really nerdy people who know where those are from.

Cthulu is Lovecraft... the Avatar reference is too obscure for meh, though... Image

I see Robocop, 2001, babylon 5, and the Culture.
