    Foolish Cruisers

    I doubt it matters in space. Just looks a little unprofessional =)

    Pen and Paper Group?

    I have played pnp games on forums before (and still do)...that could work if the staff wanted to make a section for them.

    WingCommanderMovie: How would you have made it?

    Bla Bla...have it your way. To answer my own question: On further reflection, I believe the Scottish flag was there in reference to his residence at the time...

    WingCommanderMovie: How would you have made it?

    So what's the deal with Taggart's little Scottish flag in the Prophecy manual? Also, who gives a damn if a subject has been debated before? If people are still willing to talk about it, why dump on someone who wants to discuss it again. How about we lay off on the dictator sauce a wee bit?

    Luckily, we already know how to do that. :(

    WC RPG Ship Design

    Holy Jesus, I've tried this many a time. Not too hard to do if you come up with your own game mechanic. It starts the lose it's ability to hold water when you start trying to use existing mechanics. I personally have tried a Robotech-type system, a Shadowrun-based system, and my own...

    Gary Whitta Doesn't Like Wing Commander!

    Heh, that actually crossed my mind. The reason he talks about it for half his article is because he probably just logged off and it was the only thing occupying his little brain at the time.

    Gary Whitta Doesn't Like Wing Commander!

    This guy is an idiot. I never had the opportunity to play WC1 until after my mind had been contaminated with all the great graphics and nifty features of the newer games, but when I finally got a copy of WC1, I played it for 2 hours and made it to work late. When I got settled into work I...

    Terran Shipkiller Concept

    I don't know what military doctrine you're following, but the level of force is determined by the objective. It doesn't just escalate to "maximum" by default.

    Most Dominant Fighter of it's time...

    That was my grounds for choosing the Vampire as well.

    Terran Shipkiller Concept

    I'm with Vinman on this one. IIRC, the Midway's big gun had problems because the big Nephilim gun wasn't made to interface with Confed technology. Confed has shown it has the tech to make something like this, or if they don't they would probably figure out how through the data the Midway...

    Most Dominant Fighter of it's time...

    It seemed throughout prophecy and SO, that the bulk of the fighting was being done by the midway and the cerberus. If other carriers were racking up 3000 kill counts, the Nephilim would've been a joke. In SO in particular, when you'd go and bail out the excals and t-bolts, they would be the...

    Most Dominant Fighter of it's time...

    I don't think the Bearcat was produced and implemented in the numbers it would take to be considered a dominating force.

    Most Dominant Fighter of it's time...

    I almost left out the Excal for that reason, but i knew the Excal fanboys would whine if I did.

    Most Dominant Fighter of it's time...

    What fighter do you think is the most dominant fighter of it's time. Now when I ask this, I mean in large scale. In the hands of 100's of pilots throughout the course of the war, rather than in the hands of one pilot on a "suicide" mission :) I'm not a huge fan of it, but I had to say...

    A question about naval tactics

    As far as offense vs. defense as touched upon in the previous post, if you are the first to go on the offensive, you have a huge edge. As air combat (at least in the RL) goes, if you fly perfect defensive ACM and your opponent flies perfect offensive ACM, you will be the one getting shot down.

    What is wrong with just "Fatcat". Hell, I think that makes a great callsign. Short and sweet. Like "Frost" ;)

    Blair's role in the Battle for Earth?

    Stealing kills i didn't have much of a problem with, stats are nothing compared to completing the mission. The thing I had a problem with was that he'd brag about how good he was afterwards!

    I hate to say this, but I think all of them are too long and too 2nd Grade. Iron Milkshake is probably the best one. IMO a really good callsign should have a story behind it. So maybe a little background as to why you like those callsigns is in order. I could picture Iron Milkshake as a...

    Blair's role in the Battle for Earth?

    Wasn't he sitting in a hospital while it all went down? I thought he got shot down sometime before.
