That thought did cross my mind too but it isn't gonna be a small nimble fighter as it is deceptively large so we just hope that big cannon on the top is as dangerous as it looks biggrin

It would seem we have quite the fleet! I'd love to see the look on the faces of the locals when we show up in their backyard.

I spoke too soon. Check out these fleets......

Lots of people concerned about how the game balance with these uber fleets around. Although a good point was raised by someone stating that the game is a skill based game so probably not too much to worry about with the Goons, no point and click like in EVE here.

The biggest difference compared to EVE is that SC will rely heavily on instancing, so the vast numerical superiority of the ber-Fleets like Goons won't be that much of a problem.

Also just because they have the ships does not mean they have the crew. Those corvettes take like 10 people just to operate the bridge, never mind fighter pilots marines ect.

Still, seeing the image, it would be quite a show to see a virtual open war between those fleets.

+1 to the SimHQ "fleet".

I like the cut of your jib Mace biggrin

Saw some figures on the number of people for those fleets. Goons have around 1,700 players ready for Star Citizen so they'll have no problem manning ships.

I agree, with instancing (iirc) plus the ability to host a private server we should not see fleets anywhere near that size.

As been mentioned before, they will not be able to field that whole fleet as there are probably a ratio of 2+ ships per member.

That there cuts their available fleet to half or under, then couple that with some of the ships need multicrew and the fleet will be even smaller.

However, they have a great diversity and can field (if organised) quite a powerful fleet.

But as mace stated, there will be a lot of people showing off by flying their big stuff single handedly and they will make an easy target.

With regards to the cutlass, I still think of it more of an interceptor rather than a fighter and I am looking forward to seeing how it runs in a co-ordinated attack - especially with its tractor beam.

I would envisage an engagement with a large craft as follows
1. fighters tie up turrets and support craft at close range
2. Bombers and cutlasses hit at medium range and cutlasses move in for tractor
3. Constellations and larger ships pound from distance
4. Multicrew craft unload passengers into ship (if not destroyed) for capture

Anyway, if we are going to do the fleet thing, can we or should we start the exodus and move a long way away fom startersville to set up a base somewhere to launch our ops (that can cover trade + mining + interdiction)

Devs said there was stuff there, but you just couldn't see it.

First you have to take out all the thrusters and completely disable the target before you can use the tractor (unless it has changed!) as a maneovering ship would rip your tractor beam out it's mounts.

I read on the SC forums that larger ships can have some sort of booby traps set and turrets so boarding a ship will be dangerous. But that's the life us pirates live biggrin

EDIT: OT - I've just put a request in for a SC sub-forum http://simhq.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/3867919#Post3867919 so we have a place to put all our stuff. Please add your votes for this too smile

Getting a small SimHQ fleet together to take down one of these large ships sounds like SO much fun.

As far as I understand it every system has jump points which normally require some kind of jump ability to go through. However, in the more built up areas of the galaxy there are jump gates constructed and any ship should be able to go through those. You should still be able to cruise the galaxy in a gladiator, just can't go visit the fringes without hitching a ride.
