  1. Sounds like they got the same boats the LCG uses.  FFG has great games... horrible supply lines.

    I don't play any other games like this these days. Are other companies as transparent as ffg about this? How do we know they are not just as bad?


  2. So, it sounds like some of FFG's boats are being unloaded finally.

     

    Unlikely.  The company probably pulled some stock from it's stores to use for the website.  It's something my company does often enough.

     

    People don't typically think to pick up X-Wing at BN.  I've been to BN stores quite a few times to get a ship that was supposedly "Out of Stock" everywhere.  They always seem to have a bit of everything and are a bit dusty :P


  3. I only got 1 of each ship for wave 5.  I really wasn't interested it them too much.  I prefer small base ships.  It also bothers me to see two different YT ships but that's something for another thread.

     

    Anyways, I did order up on Scum.  Not really familiar with the EU ships but I like the feel of the faction overall.  I think it's going to be good for the game.  Rebels vs. Imperials was great... Scum is going to make it better.


  4. Oh, and there's actually upwards of fifty or sixty different cover variants for Star Wars #1.  Most are dealer exclusives shops are getting as rewards for ordering a certain amount of regular issues, meaning you'd have to travel to dozens of different comic shops around the country in order to get them all.  Best not to even worry about it.

    Oh, I'm not that crazy.  But I'll likely see about picking up a few.

     

    My local comic shop is really quite odd.  Two nice guys run the place in a rather small basement below a State Farm office.  The building is a converted large house.

     

    I doubt they are going to have too much of a selection on alts anyways.

    To my understanding, it's not so much the speed of the boat but how long it takes to get through customs which really throws things off.

    X-Wing probably counts as a highly addictive substance.

     

    I think what take so long is the Customs people are trying to figure how to snort a StarViper.

     

    FFG shipments are really watched because they are one of the largest "plastic crack" dealers in the world.

     

    No no.  Clearly it's because of the "bombs, missiles, and torpeodos".  Can't be too careful, you know.

    As for Lucasarts, that was a business decision that was a long, long time coming. It was a shadow of it's former glory. And while the games might've sounded cool, I can guarantee that they would end up being crappy games. 

     

    I can agree with that.  Star Wars games have hooked me less and less as time has gone on.  They just seem to borrow to heavily from other games instead of the unique designs the older ones had.  Example being... Force Unleashed.  That played too much like God of War.  Empire at War played too much like some other space game I can't think of at the moment... Maybe Sins of a Solar Empire?

     
    I have a feeling the new Battlefront is just going to be Battlefield in space.
     
    I would kill for a modern version of Rebellion (Supremeness).  I loved the character/mission system in that.  It really felt good taking over a planet with well done uprising/sabotage missions.  I really liked the fleet battles back in the day, but now I can realize they were crappy... Other side always ran if outmatched unless you had an indicator and the controls sucked.  If they could somehow fix the fleet battles and update the overall looks/UI...

    Thermite is ignited by heat, it goes through an exothermic oxidation-reduction reaction. I'm not certain, but I think that means it still requires oxygen, which may be hard to do in the vacuum of space.

    Yup, I'm that guy now.

    But we can hear starfighter engines, lasers and explosions in space.

    Sihn, I know, someone should fix that.

     

     

    Space battles are more exciting with sounds.
     
    As for Thermite itself... does it really matter how it works?  We have quite a few other weapons in Star Wars that don't make sense scientifically.  I just used this name because it's in the universe already, I just want to know what people's thoughts are on a range 5 ordinance.

  8. So, I've been kicking around some ideas for unique upgrades for an Old Republic themed star fighter version of X-Wing.  I actually plan on posting a separate topic for that one of these days, however, I thought the idea for this torpedo/missile would be nice to have in regular X-Wing. 

     

    Anyways, Galactic Star Fighter has a missile called the Thermite Torpedo.  It has a long lock time and only average damage, but it can be fired from extremely long range compared to other missiles/torpedoes in the game.  I was thinking of how that would translate into X-Wing and I thought about the range ruler for epic.

     

    I'm not sure how well that would work in a regular 3x3 match, but it seems like it would be fun for epic matches.  Perhaps epic only?  4 red dice.  Range 3-5.  Only thing I'm really conflicted on is how the target lock would be achieved. 


  9. I'm actually not convinced that Rey is the Solo kid.  I mean, out of all the actors, she looks like she would be it.  But why would she be living on Tatoonine?  Han and Leia are supposedly fine.  Maybe Han wouldn't know he had a kid, but Leia would.  Leia doesn't seem like the type of person to give up her kid.

     

    I mean, do you all agree that it looks like she lives there and is not visiting?  I'm basing it on her clothes and speeder, which look right at home there.

    There's actually a rumoured plot leak that explains why she's on Tatooine but I'm not gonna be the one to spill the beans for you:) You're gonna have to dig for it yourself if you want to know.

    I believe I know which one you're talking about but it still doesn't make much sense to me. Why would Leia go with that? It doesn't seem to fit. However, if Rey is Luke's... that Might fit, especially with the rumors.

  11. Hi,

     

    I'm toying with the idea of making cards of the starfighter ships (And maybe some of the larger player ships) from the Galactic Starfighter expansion of SWTOR.  However, I do not have the skills to make actual models.  I know from lurking around that there are a few people here who model ships for Shapeways.  Would anyone be interested in making a few models?

     

    I'm hoping for:

    Flashfire

    And whatever other fighters somebody would be willing to do.
