Dumb question about Shadow Cloud Weapons arcs.....

Postby lastbesthope » Mon Sep 18, 2006 7:29 pm

It has no arc listed for it's weapons...are theyeffectively Turret or can it only fire on something within the cloud?

Is it a station with targets trait? if so then arc doesn't matter.

We cannot let that happen. :D

LBH asking a question... this is monumental. A celebration is in order. :twisted:

I think I got my point across. Atleast we can all find solace that LBH is human... just like most of us... :roll:

Welcome to the club, LBH. :lol:

Actually the Shadow Could is in SFOS.

And we all know that LBH is human, since he cant paint all his T-Bolts.
Well he might be superrich for being able to outstrip MGPs production rate, but still he cant paint em......

Maybe the post would be more descreet if it had a shorter name...

I mean, "Dumb question about Shadow Cloud Weapons arcs....." sticks out like a sore thumb when compared to other, far shorter titles. Also, the words "dumb question" authored by LBH is something I really should take a picture of... and then stick in my signature... If I only knew how to use the capture device... :wink:

You mean like the other stuff? That somehow finds itself to be Armageddon lvl.

Like half the frikkin EA fleet? Yes our main line warship is more powerful than yours, although a few decades ago, it was just the opposite. Ability growth by 4? Stupid humans, someone explain me their cunning ability in nearly every SF Universe to make fast techjumps. While every alien race seems to be stumped into stupidity?

rambling ends, and dont get me started on elves....

It's called writing for your audience. Assuming you are human, that is.

True dat, but it gets repetitive. Always on the winning side? Boring.

Oh yes im Narn. Oh wait we did get beaten up for 3 seasons.......

Its is funny, considering current 3rd age tech, Minari did not develop any true techology for 1000 years, humans suppased them within what 50 years?

Cool by me. Just a disgruntled Narn that doesnt like the EA that gets all the toys ^^.

Yeah i know. And actually i prefer not to have any, but that has to do with the priority lvl system. (Cause if i wouldnt not have any, id get more damage and crew, making me more resilient to damage ^^)

And we get advanced E-mines, which i hope can still short-charge anyway. Actually can anyone confirm this?


So yes No race is totally out of the loop. But humans always get proportionately more stuff.

At least part of it is the fact EA get more ship types. Almost every race has one "advanced ship" but the EA have enough to have two (three!) distinct fleet lists.

It is annoying that other races get nothing. The minbari, as a case in point, designed and built the white star. So how come they haven't used any of that shiny biotech hardware on a new-generation cruiser in crusade era?
Understand that I'm not advocating violence.
I'm just saying that it's highly effective and I strongly recommend using it.
