Turret Replacement by AdamBurn Turret Replacement by AdamBurn
Here is another illustration painted to show how the Human ships are able to use robotics to either replace broken turrets or replace them with a different kind of turret/weapon. The robotics run on rails and use robotic arms the pull off the turret and replace it with another that is stored in the storage area of the ship.

I've watched it so many times now and have showed almost every single friend who has stayed over. Awesome movie.

I saw the first episode but had to go to bed for school when my father was watching the rest.

My parents are Sci-fi geeks so they explained all of it to me, including Jayne's hat, knitted by his mommy~ ;D

Some day, when I have the time, I'll watch the series all the way through.

Interesting method for repair and makes sense, if you've got the space for spares. Gets the ship back up to combat form quickly and I'm sure it'd be a lot easier to repair the turrets in a repair bay rather than outside the ship while wearing spacesuits. Great concept!

As your ships crew improve you can repair the ship quite well but obviously some repairs are too difficult to make by the crew with the supplies they have on board so the only way to bring a ship back to full combat efficiency is to visit a space dock

Seems like you've got a lot of the gameplay already worked out. How close is this thing to being released?

There is a Beta being released at the end of the month and for info on joining it keep an eye on the Facebook and Twitter pages. We are still deciding on a full release day.

thats a pretty neat idea...so in the game can i choose to attack their repair bay so that they have a harder time repairing on the run? lool.

AdamBurn Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
yep you are able to target all manner of parts on the enemy ships, obviously shields will make this more difficult as well as advanced target scramblers but hitting different parts will have dramatic effects.

mmm...interesting...so how is the fighting? is it real placed? how would you like..manage ur attacks? like in rts mode, how do u command ur fleet? like "squadron of fighters focus fire on the shield generators then the engines" most games are just click and they start...well...fighting. lol. how would the player control their fleet effectively and accurately?

You can pretty much just tell your ships to engage the enemy but you can also tell then to hit certain parts, use different weapons against different ships and also keep your ships moving, a moving target is harder to hit. its all commands from an RTS point of view and your fleets are generally between 10-25 ships depending on their size and hull type so its not going to be so overwhelming. Its aimed at being both approachable so players can enjoy it easily but at the same time give it a level of complexity and strategy so that the combat always remains fresh and strategic not a simple rock paper scissor type RTS like most games

Its pay to play, but for the first 6 months or so its half price as the game will not be huge at first but like in EVE we will constantly add to it for free, eventually there will be 5 races each very very different from the last, also a big sweeping story arc

Ok see now that system is just plain epic. I love the concept of adjustable and modular design, and adding on a 'in transit' transfer system just plain makes it work even more. I love the concept, and of course the awesome illustration you've created to go with it.

Thanks, as the game continues we hope to add in more detailed animation and eventually you will be able to see these platforms replacing the turrets.

Yeah pretty much but the platform could just as easily drive to the damaged section and repair it with new rails. The Humans are very resourceful and their ships are very easy to fix and build, they have an almost rushed scrap yard look too them.
