    We, the Arkadians, love our Devs artistic work. So with this, we want our own uniquelly designed spacecraft and vehicles of all different kinds, shapes and sized. If spotted, others will know, thats Arkadian, or Calypsian, and so on. Unique Characteristics in design, other that only logos is what is meant here. A Look that would make our Arkadian Space vehicles stand out as being our own, unique in shape.

    Our own unique attachable weaponry, Shield enhancers, computer upgrades generally all attachments and everything craftable. Perhaps Arkadians will have the abillity for cloacking unit attachable to ships. Arkadian unique and very sought after and expensive throughout the verse. For example. Maybe some serious weaponry too, like particle beam cannons, Cloaked subspace torpedoes etc. That'll get the black markets goin too lol.

    I like the idea, of course at some point there should be some sort of Arkadian spaceships/vehicles..

    So far what I know there is only 1 planet specific vehicle which is Calypsos "Pitbull" series..

    I do however dislike the idea that planet specific vehicles should have something special/unique like you mention... All vehicles should be similar, they should have a similar damage weaponry and not too different amounts of SI... Otherwise I think we will get some balancing problems

    I totally agree, we need some UL Arkadian fighters ships, so when others come into our interplanetary boarders they know who they are dealing with.

    Dave or Cyrus, can you give us some idea if the Arkadian team would consider releasing Arkadian specific UL fighters in say Arkadian mob loot for example. Give the Arkadian people a fighter defence force.

    Cheers

    I don't think Mistress Arwen is deliberately meaning we have some all powerful fleet of craft that will trounce anything else, but instead that we have something that stands out plainly as being from Arkadia. I for one hope we will see the dropships and shuttles/fighters mentioned in the storyline.

    i hope arkadian vehicles will be fast and agile based not clunky fat slow like caly's
    example quads or trikes with jump boosters to clear ravines/fallen items or trees.
    jetpacks used like a regular item (equiped instead of spawned) for fast local flight.
    and single person affordable small spaceflight jets that makes like a swarm of beez in a armada :D

    so arkadian transport, small fast agile and plentifull is my wish :)

    Wow, Arwen you've been busy, it's true that making something completely new would be hard. There have been so many games/movies and tv shows that many truly original designs have been used already, but maybe something from some little known, old sci fi movie or something,once the copyright is gone, then it's open season. Other than that...anyone good at 3d max or an equivalent? Maybe have a contest to see what we can come up with.

    With the dev talent Arkadia Studios have to their advantage, I am pretty sure they can come up with something uniquelly arkadian. Various types too for the sake of variety and choice. My few posts are to basically give an idea and inspire. Though the Hoverbike is quite something for extreme speed and personal transport. And damn sure that the Devs can fashion something related perfectly. Can you immagine what you can do on the RT-Racetrack, or was it on NI? You get the idea he he he :) But I think a racetrack that spans the planet, with crazy shapes and loops for high-speed racing would be needed, even reach the edge of the planetary biosphere scimming space through a tube section :) Mmmm, lots of adspace next to racetracks for rent purpose by traders, another design feature idea lol.

    The hoverbike should be, if designed, the fastest planetary vehicle in EU, max speed clasified lol.

    Dave and his people have done a heck of a job on Arkadia, and yes, I stayed because I like the place, but space with pirates and all is just starting, and I'm sure they have a lot to show us yet, but I must apologize for saying this but, the fighter ...its an X wing and even though its not an exact replica, its design can be seen from miles away. The mother-ship looks much more original and unique, so here's hoping that any other vehicles will be very original to this game.

    Well theres something else I have been thinking of. Mechenized battle armor and dropships to acommodate say 8 mecs.
    [video=youtube;fyiu9mgW2Nc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyiu9mgW2Nc[/video]

    perhaps something close to this:

    A single mech for protecting bases, maybe but for our personal use? No..sorry... the drop ship idea has merit because it could be used for different things, like hauling freight from planet to bases and even to other planets, we don't have a freighter yet and fighters should by definition have small cargo bays, so something bigger that can haul more is needed for planetary trade. Then too, they could be used as space miners and have mining beams similar to the extractors we have now, built in, bringing down refined metals from orbit to sell to help expand the bases and for repairs to ships. That means not just scrap, but salvage, like parts and even supplys that were on the original ship, maybe welding wire, every ship needs that or components and even enhancers all salvaged parts from bases and old ships.:shrug:

    Ye lets not lose sight of the Archeological significance of ancient rediscovered derelict alien spacecraft floating around in space. Theres no telling what kinda rare goodies that can be found on those. Not to mention unexplained utensils and thingies for the Museum lol.

    How about this....crashed, damaged spacecrafts under water. Like big lakes, not those tiny little ones, or along the beaches, maybe under special conditions, a tail fin sticks out to give us a hint. All either salvageable for parts/resources, or possibly repairable,with some (high) cost.Different types too, shuttles, fighters and freighters, all things are possible after a war, and with two sides having great technology, compared to us...there could be some good things to find exploring Arkadia carefully.
