Hi pilots. Some of you maybe don't know, that very talented imo people, created something awesome. Something, that it really can be described - at least- as epic.

The epic battleship: Dreadnaught

 

http://forum.star-conflict.com/uploads/monthly_03_2012/post-11086-0-94039500-1332752819.jpg

 

My questions are:

1. Would you like those enormous ships to be buyable by corporations?

2. Would you like to be able to land inside Dreadnaughts after battles?

 

Details:

1. A corporation, could be able to buy a Dreadnaught either with Iridium, or with other currency. Perhaps it could be given by factions, once a corporation completes some PvE-PvP quests, or for the period that a corporation aids a faction with sector conquering. Those are just some ideas i got, feel free to add yours.  ^_^

 

2. Since i am familiar with Gaijin's another title, "WarThunder", i recall the landing system, where pilots could land and repair their airplanes. The concept of Star Conflict is different, but i would like to be able to land the last ship i was piloting, in my corporate's Dreadnaught. Perhaps some small reward for doing so could been provided, and there would be even an option to skip it. The mechanisms could be more precision-based (adding some arcade feeling into it), and to make it more challenging perhaps there could be a time limit to successfully land the ship.

 

P.S:

Many thanx to the people that created this project, it's pure awesomeness. The original post is here:

http://forum.star-conflict.com/index.php?/topic/6310-clan-dreadnought-is-ready/

The term "battleship" is a term i used arbitrary. The creators never refered to Dreadnought as "battleship".

What you're suggesting is already planned for the future. Corp vs Corp battles with dreadnoughts will be aviable soon

Just for the record: battleship and dreadnught are 2 different things.

You're new, right? The Dreadnought is something that the Devs are promising since a looooong time ago.

Half right half wrong, Dreadnaughts were precursors to the Battleships of modern eras (WWII namely cause we no longer use them now).

Dreadnaught: siege ship

Battleship: combat ship

 

Wether they also have similar capabilities between themselves for defense / specialization is a different story and it would lack common sense to limit them IRL.

Hi all,

I don't used "battleship" term, as an realistic title, i used it just to add some "essence"  :fed002:

My pole refers to if the players would like their corp to be able to own a Dreadnaught, not just to implant Dreadnaught as a feature in battles.

Also if you would like to given the option to land inside the Dreadnaughts, something that i think it's not discussed in forum yet.  :fed_cool:

agreed! there has always been promise of the dreadnaughts, is any info on their role, or why we might need one? if one is good, is two better? it seems some corps might be able to buy a fleet. if so, can we destroy one? ( or all?) as I am a pirate merchant, I desire to steal (commandeer) one, so I might have a place to hide me loot,      ARrrrrrrrrrggg....

Wanna know about size diferences in ship classes (space ships) Try this: http://static3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20070412043835/egamia/images/2/2b/Eve_chart.jpg

 

Its from Eve online, notice the dots on it, they are the ships we start, namely frigates, and basically everything apart from drones are bigger than frigs there.

Wow, i imagine that the amount of ppl who have done a "the amarr titan is your mom's xxxx" must be really high

 

 

I love those monstrous sizes, imagine a 14km ship on sco piloted by a couple of players

Yeah imagine a super large ship where you need a minimum of 4 people to fly it.

I think the dread on SC will be smaller than a battleship of Eve. If the size is the same as on that PVE raid.

 

Follow that comparison and using ship classes that have on scon, we might evaluate that:

 

Frigates are in that drawing, about 60-90m long.

Fighters would be heavy drones.

Inties would be light drones.

 

Basically, if the civilization from Eve finds the guys from starconflict in space it would be an anihilation, no jericho, empire or feds would be left, and all they would need to use is 1 or 2 titans or carriers.

Nahh not even close

All it would take for us to win is couple of Anime characters to find its way into our universe and fight on our side, they would solely destroy the whole EvE universe.

The question is: how united is EVE and how many ships can each faction actually spare to fight us while they still have each other

1 would be enough, that huge multigalaxy-sized robot from Gurren lagan.

1 of their aliances would be more than enough to deploy 2000 ships, which is more than the average population in peak time on SC. And from diferent sizes, with huge aoe dammage that a xxxx would kill inties. Since there the frigates can reach 30.000m/s (if fitted only for speed, anything else discarded) But a normal interceptor there flyes at more than 2000ms. The turrets auto-track, the drones fly at 2000ms, basically a couple carriers could cause severe dammage, since the turrets are pratically hitscan and here the speed is set at max 700ms, if this ships managed to orbit at 700ms they would still be killed by destroyers and drones pretty easy.

 

But, this is all nonsense, discussing diferent "universes". I think we could compare star conflict with recent spaceflight since corps still own nothing, but the empires they serve do. And even has more than 30000 years old if i remember correctly (even though with the dark ages that passed).

If they come HERE they will have the 700m/s limitation too, so... they would be pretty surprised, i think.

 

I would love to see these flying xxxx in game:
