Re: Cerastes gunship pilots - do they know how to fly?

The AI is terrible at collision avoidance, to the point that I'm not sure it even has any collision avoidance. The seem to rely entirely on starting placement being far enough apart that they don't hit each other, but the Cerastes (and to a lesser extent the Nemesis, which also has this problem) are...

Re: Feedback/ Suggestions topic.

I'd like to see smaller Cylon fleets still appearing late in the game. My reasoning is thus: Currently once Cylon fleets are all large size (over 4000) points it's impossible for a fleet with a new officer to ever win a battle because his fleet will be too small, making it impossible to gain experie...

Re: A small Frustration

From what I've seen 90% of a ship is "front" and "rear," with the remaining four facings in a narrow band around the middle of the ship. In practice the only weapons that hit somewhere other than front and rear are missiles and fighters, which track the center of the ship. You can also sometimes get...

Campaign question

Do the losses the Cylons take in a battle affect the overall campaign in any way? For example, if you lose a fleet due to retreat not being implemented but destroy a big Cylon ship in the process, will that Cylon fleet still be around but without the ship that was destroyed?

Re: Ship Classes

They're not. The types are a big tip-off: calling everything a somethingorotherstar is a peculiar obsession of people who make up fan designs. There's actually a wiki available with what information is available on every ship that actually appears: https://en.battlestarwikiclone.org/wiki/Main_Page

Re: Jump Options

I think jumping out would be a really good thing for them to add in future development. Retreating fleets should also pay the normal tylium cost depending on their size and how long it had been since their last jump.

Re: Does this game have sideslip maneuvers?

If you watch the way the ships move in various Youtube videos, you can see that the are, in fact, doing what you want.

Re: Twitch question: Anti-missile missiles for ship defence

In fairness, you never see defensive missile fire in the show either. Even the Mercury class from 50 years in the future of this game still relies on flak.

Re: Does this game have sideslip maneuvers?

From the assorted videos on Youtube, it's clear that the answer is "yes." A ship can make a slight turn to one side, and then yaw back in the other direction, effectively conducting a sideslip.

No escort missions, please!

In a recent Youtube video I learned that the game has escort missions. Please, while there's still time, take them out! Escort missions are quite possibly the worst idea in the history of game design. There's absolutely nothing fun about them, and deliberately making players miserable hardly seems l...
