I've Ex'd the Hellcat being in the mod...There are 2 variants of Excaliburs in the mod...The original (Unmodified Variant except for and updated model) and also a variant to be used as part of the Revenge Crew.
As far as the story goes. I've really been steering away from being a Confed pilot in this mod...and reason being... I for one really like the Privateer feel to a game, and even the Privateer feel to the Nephilim Encroachment.. It doesn't mean that you won't see the ships, it just means that you as the player are in a totally different role. And don't really have some loyalty to anyone, You really get stuck into something that you don't necessarily want todo...But have to do to clear the ships name and not be imprisoned for Crimes against Confed. So Confed hires The Revenge to assist in some front line engagements...Knowing that Half the crew are actually ex Confed operatives and/or military background.
Here is a list of flyable ships....With the Revenge
Arrow Scout (2 Diff Missile loadouts)
Rapier Blade (2 Diff Missile loadouts)
Excalibur Wyvern (2 Diff Missile loadouts)
Covered in the mod, I mean there is already 2 ships that for the most part are from WC3 I mean the Arrow scout, Excalibur are WC3..The Broadsword, WC2..Most flyable WC4 ships if you don't remember were Border World Militia ships. On top of that there is also ships that you don't fly in any campaign that will still be flyable in the simulator. So you don't really have to worry about not being able to fly them you just won't fly them unless it's in the simulator.
My point is...I think I have too many ships on the friendly side at the moment any ways... I'm trying to focus more on the different Kilrathi ships...and also Nephilim ships. I mean there was 4 ships you could fly in SO...Panther, Vampire, Wasp, and Devastator. I think that's plenty of ships for a modified destroyer to have. Think there may be 4 ships but you have 3 to 4 wingmen...That's a total of 16 ships you'd need just as supply. I figured having a light,mid,heavy, and a bomber is far enough to have for flyable ships in a campaign...
I actually got that "Hurricane" name from the Privateer Online Design Doc...It was a proposed Confed Medium Fighter. Pg 42
I was going to tie it in, both to being a confed fighter at the moment and hey who knows maybe that's not what the ship is named in the future maybe those pirates call it the Vendetta! We don't really know but seeing how Arena mentions on Page 10 ..Please see. https://cdn.wcnews.com/newestshots/full/starsoldier_page10.png
I did have some thought behind it...And I do try and make sure I'm not doing things in the mod that are not conflicting to the WC world as we know it. But I do understand your thought that I do.
There are some things that are "MADE UP"..Like the Excalibur Wyvern...There's no mention of it anywhere but...It is something that is plausible..It's a modified Excalibur that I took some ideas from the Arena Crew and the concept art to have a different looking Excalibur, in the Mod. In which I dubbed the "Wyvern" that I actually got the name from Final Fantasy IV as that cool looking dragon that does some nuclear assault on your party that is totally devastating. It kinda has that dark look to it that I related to the WC3 dark look paint job so I applied that thought to this fighter in naming it.
I know there has been some few things down the road in which I've made up and totally sounded silly....But "You" as the WC community have helped me in realizing certain faults and I truly appreciate the creative help. I don't want to make a MOD that is not plausible at all. But I do, do the research needed before I make decisions...Which proves to be time consuming but it needs to be done so that, I'm not making some MOD that WC fans say "OMG WTF is that? Does that even make sense?". And you guys have always helped.
I was being sarcastic up top, and apologize, because I forget that it's hard to show sarcasm in text..But I really did do research into it...just because we don't really know what the Hurricane II looks like...Unless I missed something, somewhere?
