Re: Solo: A Star Wars Story

"Honest debate" - You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. Wow, nice meme; should I go for the low-hanging fruit of how it's actually two words, or just get straight to the heart of it and point out that you used 18 words to add - since you didn't go into details -...

And yet you post a pic of 'anal Lube'... awesome way to make an honest debate.
Because the attitude shown was a fine way to "get shafted", hence the gif that followed.

Context is kind of critical, don't you think? :roll:

I hope the irony of your post isn't lost on you.

Re: WIP: Nebulon B Frigate Version 2.0

The x-wing games have traditionally placed the hangar (when present) on the port side, not starboard. Except for the fact that... no. :P https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/d/d8/Warspite.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20110930102711 https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/1/1e/A...

Re: Nebulon-B Hangar

Wouldn't the most sensible thing be to add a modular docking bay between the engines and the fore of the ship hanging down from the spar to resolve the technical issues? Obviously extensive ship modifications, especially for the rebels is entirely viable and extremely common. Kalla's Stanchion

Re: More Clone Wars

I'd love to see Hondo Ohnaka get the big screen CGI treatment; he's still alive in the sequel era, and IMO would've been perfect in TLJ.

Has to be Jim Cummings voicing him, though; nobody else will do. :D

Re: Why there hasn't been any Star Wars simulator for 16 years

It's already happened, at least twice in the last few years: Galaxy in Turmoil Double Damage Prototype EA has the final say, due to their exclusive license for non-mobile games, and they aren't buying. No (corporate) interest in the genre is nothing new; LucasArts used to have regular polls on their...

Where can I find an explanation of the difference between the base and exterior opts?
Base OPT is used for AI craft; Exterior is used when you view your own ship, in flight and in the hangar. Exterior models usually have a bit more detail, and a cockpit interior.
