Re: why do all the fighters have only a single laser cannon?

Sounds like you have a single ship installed incorrectly, maybe.

Re: Not used craft in XWA campaign

Well, a few of those I think we're just in the game for legacy reasons, like the Modified Strike Cruiser. It was important in the XvT expansion, but there isn't much reason for it to be in XWA. The Star Viper it seemed was going to be part of some broader tie-in content with SotE, which was around t...

Re: Supporting you

I am sure many people would love it, but it is a legal issue that is probably best left alone when dealing with Star wars content. If and when the artists here make completely new designs, there might be some room there, but it would still carry a little risk.

Re: Rogue One: my quibs (Spoilers included)

My complaint is that the Rebels got from Yavin to Scarif in just a few minutes, where presumably it should have taken at least a few hours.

Re: Rogue one ships

The X-Wing miniature game offers an explanation for the S-Foils. You can read about it on the FFG website. Whether that is what it will be in-universe or not going forward is anyone's guess. I am sure there is already an Incredible Cross-Sections books, though. :-P Avarice mentioned there looked to ...

I kept trying to remember to reply to this, but not having the time.

It looks like a great project; I think remaking the original game and building out form there is ...

Re: Rogue Squadron II Models (Proof of Concept)

*Shrug* I am all for ripping old game models for reference. Just keep in mind that if you want to release them, you are not covered under Fair Use very well, and are opening yourself to prosecution by Disney. They probably wouldn't, but just something to be aware of.

Re: Rogue One Trailer dropped

Despite the claim that it is impossible to come up with original designs, most of the hundreds of ships in Star Wars up until the last few years were... at least were more original. I'm obviously not saying A-Wings should not exist in Ep VIII. Just saying that if they are trying to show a design evo...

Re: Shadows of the Empire is now on GOG!

I didn't know it was new, but I picked up a copy anyway. I have a physical copy, but it doesn't run right and I figured the $4 was worth my time scrounging the internet for compatibility fixes.

Re: Rogue One Trailer dropped

Which actually makes the Rotj A-Wing retrospectively the odd one out, because the A-Wings in Rebels are also based on the Mcquarrie painting. Yeah... It's the same reason I hated most of the designs from Knights of the Old Republic. It's trying too hard to be what was already established. There's n...

Re: Any hope to have a Lambda Shuttle Cockpit?

Shuttle cockpit would be tricky to do to XWAU standards, because there *is* a canon, film cockpit, but it is seen only from a few angles, and I haven't come across any resources with images of the set. I guess if worse came to worst, you could base it off of the Rogue Leader cockpit.

Re: Weapon ranges?

Supercharged lasers have a 1.5 km range. Lasers that are not supercharged have a 1.0 km range.

Dunno about the other questions.

If you mean using the keypad to change your view, yes it is jerry by default. It is an analogue motion mapped to a digital control, and additionally it doesn't move smoothly (most likely to allow for easy re-centering for those who forgot about the 5 button). There might be some way to enable mousel...

Yeah, and don't forget the Farlander Papers that I mentioned, Vince. The last game is called Lethal Alliance.

Re: Rogue One Trailer dropped

I'm never going to be happy that they reset the canon. At first, I thought it'd be good. It's the only way to trash the bad stories without individually singling out authors who did a bad job. For instance, Forces of Corruption had an extremely Gary Stu-led story, where their "references" actually c...

Re: X-wing Alliance VR?

Just thought of something else with 6DoF. The cockpits would need to be slightly reworked to have the targeting reticle added in. This is because the HUD would be stuck to your view wherever you are, and would only line up with where you are supposed to shoot when you were perfectly centered in your...
