Long Live the Confederation!
Maybe some color highlights, a la WC3/4 -- including a Confed star somewhere?
You don't necessarily have to steer away from that - my thoughts were along the lines of gathering up all the little two-barrelled turrets and placing them along the side of the hull (maybe in a staggered configuration to give better coverage - one on the top side, the other on the bottom, then top, bottom, etc.)That is an interesting idea using the Arena type batteries (I was just trying to make it easier on myself by using the SO ones.)
Well, I wasn't trying to prove a point so much as try to lay out everything possible. My personal preference, though, is for the "carrier-line sequence" theory - the problem here is that we don't know how many Vesuviuses were actually built. Johnny Guentzel, developer of Secret Ops, once laid out a list that included eight or ten, but that was never made official, and I can't find it now. That doesn't even go to say that the Vesuvius was, if I recall, intended to be the new "fleet carrier", the workhorse of the fleet - which means that a lot more were probably built afterwards (which goes nothing to say of other types of carriers - it could be anywhere from twenty to over a hundred.)Hmm interesting enough that's for sure...What would you suggest the designation be Bob?
The "C" in the US system (look it up) signifies "Cruiser", even when applied to Carriers (I had once thought a rare exception was made there), and the "S" already stands for Dreadnought - so what you have (I'm assuming the "D" is for Dreadnought" basically says "Cruiser Dreadnought Dreadnought."I only ask Bob because you seem to know alot of the designation of the dreadnoughts and carriers and the like... all good information, that's for sure. What about a designation as CDS?
You should talk to the standoff guys. There are some real problems with capship-to-capship combat.Well Actually Eltee I plan on having some sort of torpedoes on this ship. There's 2 tubes toward the front of the ship, which are in black n grey that you can see. I plan on having those 2 as torpedoe hardpoints. I'm not really sure how it would work in the vision engine as far as code but I'll check it out.
