heh, I see it a bit, though the vanguard is less vertical. I'm curious though, besides room for mounting more weapons, would there be any reason for the vanguard to have all its aerodynamic surfaces extended in space? I would assume that once you left the atmosphere the first thing you'd want to do would be to tuck all those fragile bits away...

It's obviously so you can say "Lock S-foils in attack position" before making your suicide run :sick:
Sat at 17:39
Well when you put it that way... complaint retracted :sick:
Sat at 18:56
Okay, so I just melted down my beautiful M50 to help pay for the Vanguard... I hope it was worth it.

@Star Blazer: one thing to bear in mind, I was going to get some extra packages (3 of them) to have the NPC slots to ensure I could fly my Connie solo but still have full crew
Sat at 22:46
but that was before I found out CIG supposedly plans to offer additional slots all by themselves without having to buy a full package - so you can get the character slots for NPC's without buying packages to do it
Sat at 22:47
Might be moot anyway for me since I will be buying at least two more concept ships (a Reliant and an Endeavor) so I could just make em packages for $20 more, get the NPC and some extra UEC :sick:
Sun at 1:32
I do not believe they have promised that all concept ships will be available as packages. They have not always been, IIRC.
Sun at 4:50
Ships aren't sold as packages before they are hangar ready. Historical reasons for that. Mainly so that people don't just have an empty hangar.
Sun at 4:55
Oh, and you can always claim that wings in space are heat radiators :sick:
Sun at 8:41
yeah, lets go with that :sick: and i guess if your maneuvering thrusters are on the tip of the wings, folding them out would give you that extra torque :sick:
Sun at 9:03
Use wings to increase profile size and allow for more spread-out placement of maneuvering thrusters, and additional weapon mount points
Sun at 17:51
and swoosh factor, always swoosh factor
Sun at 21:31
wings are for mumitions
Sun at 21:32
Sun at 21:33
twinguns out on wings angling inward towards focal point ... spread further out they can get better angle on target, also allows way more swivel than they would on the body, only exception is a gimbal on the nose
Sun at 21:34
same goes for missiles ... a launcher that could swivel would be better able to set starting launch angle, plus having missles launch from wing keeps the ship's fuselage out of the rocket wash, giving better thrust dynamic and reducing wash burn of the armor
Sun at 21:34
which is why even tho all the thrusters tend to be on the fuselage they still have wings ... until you reach a certain size then wings aren't practical
Sun at 21:36
thrusters on the wing wouldn't be practical ... torque on the wing base would be enormous and be first place to break, and that's not even getting into the logistics of how the thrust plasma would need a conduit along the wing to reach them :-/
Sun at 21:37
also why the Connie has fold-out wings just for its missile racks :sick:
Sun at 21:43
Maybe you're supposed to use them like Vanduul blades. The leading edges are reinforced.

Star Citizen: Imagine

Clovis aa posted Dec 20, 14
This is the new official Star Citizen trailer created by user "years1hundred" in concert with CIG.

Here is the original version created by the same user. This is the video that got the attention of Chris Roberts and led to the creation of the new official video shown above.
