  1. 1. Do we need wings on our ships?

    • Yes, I like wings.
    • No, wings should be removed in one of next updates.

We all know it's wrong to have wings in space. They have no use, except making a ship easier to hit and making it heavier, harder to move, more expensive... (not in this game ofc).

 

But, wings look nice.

 

So, let's vote and see if we need wings on our ships.

 

Maybe some fresh ideas would be good what to use wings for? Like holding antennas, shield relays, module distributors, guns, missiles....

Wings are definitely needed. 

 

Low orbit flying, atmosphere flying with VTOL capabilities, and even stabilization.

Most fins and wings in the game are just there for aesthetic purposes. Almost anyone has aerodynamic profile, and some fins and ailerons are just plain bad (like the Formula 1 type aileron in the swarm model. That think will throw the ship out of balance all the time)

 

But they are cool, and in most cases they serve as turret mountings.

 

I prefer to thing they are used as shield relays and energy projectors.

Well, we already have cockpits in the front of the ships, wide-open and easy to target (lol at the design), so why can't we have more nonsense like wings? Voted yes for the lulz.

With enough thrust applied everything can fly. 

 

Reminds me of KSP. 

 

add more rockets, and it will eventually get into orbit....Or crash.
