Fuck you nigger, E-Wing is best space superiority fighter.
>But muh iconic X-Wing!
It's outdated, faggot. Sometimes the "old reliable" ship isn't so reliable, it's just old.
Y-Wing is best-wing, though.
Shouldn't the Y-Wing be compared to the A-10 Thunderbolt, since it's heavily-armed and durable but slow?
But Y-Wings are so friggan slow, I kept getting shot down when trying to use them in rogue squadron
>mfw I work on the F-15E
OP, learn the difference between A/A and A/G
If the Empire and Alliance are both US then who are the slavs
Nah, that would be the K-Wing, a dedicated CAS fighter
Black Sun. A barely-legitimate conglomerate of mongy criminals masquerading as legitimate states flying antique hunks of shit held together by duct tape and prayer.
i thought the Y wing was a pure strategic bomber? thats what i remember anyway
the A-10 is not a bomber, it's designed to fly low to the ground, what are you guys smoking?
>moving the goalposts
How was anything moved? They're multi-purpose fighter/bombers. We've had several of them in real life, as well. Plus the Y-Wing can do both surgical strike bombings and carpet bombing.
the thread reminded me the coolest looking plane there is (apart of course from B-2)
This (Rihkxyrk, in the center) was my favorite SWG JTL ship after they did that chassis re-balance.
Sharing with you guys just because.
B-wing is made to deal damage to capital ships. You can class them as a torpedo/ dive bomber.
Lucas modeled sw craft with ww2 in mind.
A snowspeeder is basicly a glorified Stuka.
THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST
Friendly reminder you could scrap every A-Wing as soon as they were produced and still end up with the most cost-effective fighter in history :^)
>pure strategic bomber
Y-Wings were always fighters first.
>thought these were cool as fuck when you were a kid
>now they just seem stupid and non functional
what the fuck is the point if you have that bizarro thing?
why not just have a flying ball? for fucks sakes.
you might know tons about fighter maintenance but you don't know shit about star wars if you think the roles in that image aren't spot on
unless you think video game adaptations are canon
the Y wing isn't optimal for bombing, thats all that has to be said
not this middle ground, oh it's multi purpose, gray answer
i think i'm in the Rogue Squadron bench and i don't know it, is that the n64 one? that's the last Star Wars game i played, lol
Doesn't look like they have anything in common but if they did it wouldn't make any difference anyway. You know the A-7 was based on the F-8 right, despite having wildly different specifications?
>Rogue Squadron is no longer the Rebel Alliance's elite fighter squadron
>TIE interceptor is super-maneuverable and fast
>can't turn sharply enough to avoid RUNNING INTO A HUGE-ASS CAPITAL SHAPE
So many thing bothered me in that battle, but that particular thing stands out so much.
>Doesn't look like they have anything in common
The nose of the aircraft is identical, as well as the body and the two horizontal engines
They just gave it a dual cockpit, two rotating ball turret guns , 4 wings with external pylons, and a third engine
Y's really depend on which version you're using and how you fit it out. Depending on the version it can be a fighter (the single-seat A4), a multirole (the two-seat S3) or a bomber (BTL-B). They've all got different specifications and performance.
The guy just couldn't hang with Wedge.
>industrial light and magic are wrong about star wars
You literally can't go higher up the canonicity ladder than what's shown in the films, and ILM decided what that was. If they say Y-Wings are as fast as X-Wings, they are. You can get around that by saying the A4 was a different version than the S3 which is the Y-Wings that usually come up in the EU but like it or not it's how it is.
Then why does he give his ability as a navigator as a reply to the question whether the ship is fast or not, on a route that is not fraught with black holes?
These EU explanations are really bad at hiding lucas´ fuck-ups,
and they are not even canon.
>shortly before her death at Doornik-319
Haha what the fuck.
Oh hell yeah. I especially loved the customized ones in the clone wars cartoon that were based off of pic related.
You see it take out three in ROTJ. A4 all the way.
Well it did take the entire rebel fleet's concentrated fire to bring down its shields and make it vulnerable.
That's from the Black Fleet Crisis Trilogy.
It's one part hard scifi fleet fanservice with a political thriller in the background, one part lando exploring an alien ship as interludes, and one part shit.
My only problem really is the Republic ships should look more like the TIE fighters and imperial stuff. This is obviously a proto- Xwing but I always felt the CIS should have had the rebel ships.
It just makes more sense logistically
>the shape is similar so it's obviously based on the same design, which means they're obviously intended for the same role
Nowhere once in the films is the speed of anything stated, only shown and never once is the Y-Wing shown to be inconsistent with that chart.
Pic related, look at the relative agility and acceleration rates.
Think you're the biggest boy in town?
You will be flying the TIE Fighter, designated Alpha 1.
>CIS having the rebel designs
That doesn't make sense
The CIS were destroyed anyhow
The time gap between empire and republic is actually pretty sparse on what we can see. Near the end of the clone wars cartoon though it shows a bit of the transition stuff
It'll probably be a long ass time before I ever actually show it. I have to literally start from nothing but SDL.
Thankfully, the game's flight physics are very simple. Everything ever only moves towards where it is pointed. No Newtonian anything.
I have no fucking clue how I'll do AI though. I'm going to do that last. Maybe that's when I'll go super public with it so someone else can do it.
I'd also like to do multiplayer, though I don't know if I'll do it by adding it into each game or by also supporting X-Wing VS TIE Fighter.
That picture has a really tragic backstory about two valiant stormtroopers who found love on the battle field with each other and tried to flee from the oppressive Empire and its tyrannical anti-homosexuality laws, only to crashland on a primitive backwater planet in the Unknown Regions where the local government was as intolerant as the Empire.
The Y-wing is as fast as an X-Wing when modified as the rebels have by removing the engine couplings and the rear gunner.
In a straight line it is fast, but not maneuverable. They were to function essentially as a torpedo bomber with the rear gunner being able to wipe out TIEs or what have you firing from behind. At Yavin the rebels removed the second seat and gunner for speed and it obviously cost them. Trained Y wing gunners are in short supply anyway as we saw at Hoth, where there were only a few walkers taken out because only a trained gunner could make a shot onto a walker leg like that.
This is partially why the X-Wing came into its own, it could function at its best with only one pilot or a pilot+astromech droid. It is also more maneuverable and more easily modified as a true multi role, though it is also considerably more expensive.
In this way the Y-Wing is more like an F-4. Fast in a line, not very maneuverable, but cheap and they made a shit ton. X-Wings are your F-15.
You forgot that Y-wings have the options of bombs the X-wing cannot carry. + being able to carry a bigger payload.
The B-wing is litterally built to replace the Y-wing in terms of the heavy hitting role. But Y-wings are cheaper + have superior speed to they still maintain their own usefullness.
Though I will say I already figured out and completed the dynamic music system, used in someone else's remake attempt
A Unity sample demonstrating it is here. Though I am not using Unity for the actual game.
For now I'm using the same physics as the original game. (wings split and spiral off while the main hull keeps spinning in a line until blowing up)
I'll experiment with other physics for it, including adding 2D debris chunks or making it look more like the films in some way
I should mention that graphical upgrades are not my intention. It will look more or less the same as the original games, except with higher resolutions. If someone wants a graphical overhaul, they can do it themselves. I'm all gameplay-first.
I'm sorry, but this is the GOAT Star Wars ship, a true patrician choice.
i wish there was something similar irl
this one too
>i wish there was something similar irl
>You will never have your own custom made space superiority fighter that puts everything else to shame.
The A-wing is fast because it's just two really powerful engines.
but why does it talk about the "wedge" design as a feature?
no other ship description refers to the structural shape as a qualify for anything.
shout-out to biggs?
better peripheral vision (compared to a Tie-Blinder?)
is there even fucking air in space?
it might as well have caption for the Slave I as "lol. i dont know either."
The first Death Star was the size of a moon. The second Death Star is twenty times or so bigger.
Both Death Star's probably had enough gravity to attract out of control star ships.
Mcquarrie did some great concept art.
>jodie foster getting waxed in an a-wing
stupid bitch should have been going faster and using the a's superior maneuverability to avoid those TIE interceptors.
based y-wing flyer though.
Well at least she got to say something even if it was dubbed over by a dude unlike the other women who flew for the rebellion.
How the fuck do the Rebels afford better fighters than the Empire? And for that matter why does the Empire skimp on their superiority fighter craft but splurge on seemingly everything else.
Jovans Karroll of Thetanis IV, the most loved admiral in the whole story of the Empire was having his retirement party aboard the Death Star, so many pilots where on leave of absence that day.
The empire a good fighter in the Tie and then just mass produced them out the ass. The rebels got what they could, but Endor was them throwing everything they had into one battle. The Empire however could still call upon countless reserves.
They like big and bad.
Psychological effect was the empire's main game.
Whats scary; a squad of elite fighters, or a swarm that blots out the sky with their accompanying star destroyer.
>mainly fighters itt
>no comfy transporters
>mfw it will take them years to complete SWGEMU
Anyone else miss the FUCK out of their ship?
Question to Star Wars friends, after RoTJ what happens?
Everyone says that the Empire still controls countless worlds and has legions of troops and star ships elsewhere in the Galaxy. But as a movie/game only pleb I don't understand how to reconcile that with the seeming final victory over the Emperor and his Deathstar.
Would I die if I went at light speed in space, even if my craft gradually accelerated up to light speed? Also, wouldn't moving at light speed be really dangerous. You might ram in to a giant asteroid, or even small debris could penetrate your craft at that speed.
The Empire isn't a chicken with its head cut off it's a hydra. In the old EU there was a ton of in-fighting, in the new one it somehow dissolved itself after a year even though that doesn't make sense.
Going into hyperspace blindly is fucking retarded and could easily kill you. A ship's navicomputer is programmed with routes through space from which are safe to travel through.
The Rebellion crushed the Empire forces at Endor because Sheev used super mind control on all Imperial forces in the same sector to make them fight more effectively. When he died, his mind control went away and they all got super confused, had their intelligence stat reduced to 1 and shat their pants.
Afterwards the Empire splintered into dozens of different factions who were busy trying to take over and the Rebels kept pushing towards the Core Worlds. Also, dozens of worlds supposedly joined the Rebellion every day after their victory.
Then Thrawn came along, united what was left of the Empire and kicked the Rebellion's ass all over the galaxy. Until he had his secret cloning facility blown up by Luke Skywalker and his super special awesome girlfriend. Then Thrawn got stabbed to death by an angry alien manlet, and the Rebellion was pretty much victorious and managed to get most of the galaxy to join their New Republic.
Haven't read any further than that.
Without the Emperor to keep a firm boot planted up their collective asses, all the Moffs (regional governors) splinter off and make their own factions. Even with the Emperor gone, the government and infrastructure and troops of the Empire are still there, used by the Moffs in their attempts to carve out their own sectors of space
F-111 is PERFECT for the Y-wing
>designed as a fighter but ended up excelling as an attacker
>relatively fast but not super agile
>attractive in an ugly way
>azn's fly it in ROTJ and there are a lot of azn's in australia
Good thing you stopped.
First an alien race immune to the Force and on a major anti-Force jihad swoops into the galaxy and bioforms a bunch of worlds. And Chewbacca gets crushed by a moon and dies.
Then Han and Leia's older son reforms the Empire and become Palpatine 2.0, kills Luke's wife, then gets killed by his twin sister.
Yes, it was a Corellian Corvette with a stolen and oversized hyperdrive. They had trouble getting it to start up sometimes because of the power draw.
Also, remember that the Kessel Run has some BANANAS gravity wells that fuck you up if you try to straight-shoot it. Most ships do this exaggerated zig-zag set of jumps to keep themselves from dying. Han's number, if real, meant that he had to do some true bullshit in skirting the edge of gravity wells. If you get to close, your ship shears in half from the gravitic differential.
>And Chewbacca gets crushed by a moon and dies.
I don't know why everyone fucking pisses bitches and moans about that. yeah it sucks they killed Chewbacca but he got one of the coolest deaths in fiction.
Don't make fun of my starfu
Sorry fags, best ships coming through. Enjoy your glassing
Move aside, Covie egghead :^)
Boy, do I love me some amalgamations
Monitors are the best.
>Strap huge guns onto a small ship.
At least the Imperial navy was never be this bad
There is literally nothing wrong with the yuuzhan vong series
This shit's so great. Why did the space battles blow in the prequels?
>Ep 1: A kid who can't figure out how to fly a space ship, completely trivialises the danger he is in.
>Ep 3: The whole dogfight focuses on tiny droids on obi-wans ship and anakin using sheev spin to avoid missles.
The only good thing was that inception noise from those bombs in AOTC.
Nothing beats the feeling of power it gives you
>tfw nothing in starwars is as fucking great as the viper
Why is the F-16 so perfect?
>hi-tech fantasy setting with it's own distinct alphabet and writting system
>A,B,K,Y,X somehow exist and their shape matches that of the ships they take their name sake from.
Ayy splain dis shit to me.
Better. Massive gravity generators that mess with all hyperdrives in the area, which makes it impossible for Rebel scum to pull off their fancy hit-and-run tactics until the ship is destroyed or they leave the field's range.
I would say they were flying patrols. Always keep a few squadrons just flying around in case an enemy jumps in. But they're flying pretty erratically and not in formations.
I hate it when in Gundam, they shoot the bridge and the entire ship explodes. There really should be some backups in case the bridge is hit, the rest of the ship should be able to function somewhat.
>"Shoot him down!"
>"We're out of Rockets sir! We also don't really feel like using our forward cannons and to be quite frank I just don't think it would be very sporting to end the war almost immediately by killing him with our four pin-point accurate beam weapons. So let's just follow him and give his fighter escorts time to fly behind us and hit every molecule around our ship except our ship until you and your master get off, meanwhile we'll tell our rear gunner to hold his fire as well. Also be sure not to use any of your force abilities in any way to slow down his bike or the fighters escorting him, let alone making them crash."
The bridge shouldn't even be exposed in the first place it should be in the middle of the ship and use cameras/sensors. Windows are useless except for your break room/observation deck.
Apparently, according to recent books it also accidentally counters normal commercial traffic, making it viable only in remote regions (unless you want to accidentally your whole supply network).
Like the beam weapons that don't need to track because their point of impact can be adjusted while they're firing? Am I also to assume these ships with gimball canopies don't have the technology to lock onto a moving object with other weaponry and fire?
The terms cruiser, frigate and destroyer are so fudged around these days that they largely don't mean much.
I mean, Arleigh Burkes are labeled as destroyers yet they fill out the traditional role of cruisers and can operate with the efficiency of a whole WW2 fleet.
Hell, even the fucking Zumwalt is considered a destroyer.
Which is true, however, Dooku was on a bike of sorts and his fighter escorts were staying very close by for the time being. Both were travelling in one direction without any attempt to deviate or shake the gunship not even a mile behind them. Rather than take the opportunity to even attempt to shoot them down with their other weaponry, they did nothing.
Once the Geonosian fighters did deviate to tail and attack the gunship, the rear gunner did nothing to defend the gunship either.
Lucas is a hack who can't write.
Dooku was flying in a straight line on a hover bike.
I would think the X-Wing would be more like the F-18; rather than the F-15
X-Wing could be outfitted with many different loadouts; like concussion missiles, proton torpedo's, heavy rockets and space bombs
F-18 is probably the #1 multi-role in the world since it can do air to air, atgm's, laser guided bombs, etc
Death star is big enough to have its own gravity well.
Actually the A-wing and X-wing were doing a run through the surface of the Super Star Destroyer, not the death star.
Coruscant remains in imperial control for another 5 years. Like the others say, there was a lot of splintering factions within the empire. Eventually the last remnants were pushed back to the outer rim where they kinda stayed. The rebels>new republic never completely destroyed the empire. They would team up to fight the yuuzhan vong and some other stuff. The imperial remnant would eventually turn into the fel empire. Fel empire lasts for a few hundred years.
This is all uncanon now unfortunately.
Fuck Lucas for making my waifu non-canon
>books were setting up Fel Empire and Jaina starting the Imperial Knights before Gisnep fucked everything up
Is Jagged Fel the greatest man in the EU?
Excellent genetics from Baron Soontir Fel father and Syal Antilles mother.
Ace pilot that can keep up with Jedi's using their force meld.
Gets to bone Jaina Solo and have her force sensitive babies.
Becomes peace seeking emperor of the reformed empire.
Are you really sure you want to do that anon?
Jacen was an hero and everything he did was for the good of the galaxy. Luke was a closed minded bigot that didn't understand everything the force had to offer. yfw everything Jacen predicted was true.
There's probably a lot of stuff you missed. Did you ever notice the balls of the trade federation ships that escape the planet's surfaces reattach to the doughnuts?
She and Kyle fucked a lot. I think that's about it.
Regular clones get fucked but their deaths don't matter since dozens more take their place.
Commandos still get fucked with shields but if they die there's no one to replace them in a timely fashion in most cases.
Just imagine a movie series based on the Thrawn trilogies
So which star wars game has the best lightsaber/jedi controls?
Jedi Outcast series
Excellent first person and third person lightsaber battles
And once you turn on the dismemberment cheat, it turns lightsaber duels into instant kills if you don't block in time
>US air force
>anywhere above tie fighter tier
You fucks have spent hundreds of billions on planes that can't fly.
Russians and Chinese shit all over you for less money.
yeah, it's been so long I don't remember the complete command
it was something like cg_saberdismemberment 1
Just look at
gamefaqsto get the command
Protip: Prepare to get raped by Reborns once you turn it on
Where's my Rogue Squadron series of movies Lucas
I'd buy 10 copies of the blu-rays if a movie series was based on the antics of Wedge and Wes
Fuck Rogue 1
So which galaxy is larger (size + population)?
Star Wars or Star Trek?
Something irks my autism about the prospect of creating huge ships, and they will never interact with "solid" mass or gravity
Like building a car or plane, I want them to touch ground when they're finished. Even boats and ships touch solid ground before being thrown into the sea
>no star wars spacefaring game where you can travel to nearly every canon planet in the galaxy and take bounties
>will never immerse yourself in the dangerous outer rim worlds as you search for ship upgrades

Being able to build spaceships in space is an incredibly massive advantage
Like here on Earth, we have to make spaceships so fucking small and as light as possible while attaching massive rockets to them just so they can break our atmosphere
If we were able to build in space, like say grab a passing asteroid we know has metal and stuff and work on building another space station that can actually start constructing ships there
It doesn't matter, the Star Wars Galaxy is mostly unified under the Republic/Empire and travel from one side to the other is possible in a timely fashion.
In Star Trek the galaxy is divided into a multitude of smaller factions and travel/communication across the galaxy is simply not possible to do. Voyager needed 90 years at max speed to get back to Federation space after all.
Star Wars represents a world after flight was invented allowing everything to be connected, while Star Trek represents a world before the railroad was invented.
Jedi are definitely waaay overplayed. There's so much more interesting stuff in Star Wars that doesn't have anything to do with Jedi or the Force that never gets explored and the prequels total focus on Jedi only made it worse.
Even Rogue Squadron had a Jedi and he was a total Mary Sue.
