Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Kari called it right. Disappearing is a better option, and closing communication before she revealed anything else of value (after letting Control know Novosi was dead) was the right thing to do. But disappear *where*? I'm a little worried for Whisper, having "downloaded" stuff while with Daniel. W...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

On the other hand, I was afraid the controller was under the control of the Souri Collective and faking being independent to get them to take out the people in control centre who had figured out the controller was compromised. I'm glad I was wrong about that. I was concerned as well, but I crossed ...

The Admiral makes the tough call... Bam, instant karma!? :cry:
Or Kari's karma. Her friends tend to die and she is already having problems with that. Even though Admiral was not her closest friend, this event is not going to help...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I assume dead means dead, right? You cannot plug her into some really high-tech augs to replace the portion of the brain that is gone?

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Good point. I would consider any space vessel (station or ship) as a potential side in an armed conflict and it should be designed as such. But my view of things is not necessarily how people of CD view things... Hal's salvage ship was another good example of designing the bridge to be functional i...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

It isn't a military station, it's civilian infrastructure. For normal operations I can imagine it being convenient that they're next to the usual bureaucracy. Good point. I would consider any space vessel (station or ship) as a potential side in an armed conflict and it should be designed as such. ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The command center is there ? First, it doesn't look like command center at all. More like the second-last floor in some random skyscraper. Security through obscurity. People looking for the valuable gem in a pile of rocks will miss it if the appearance of the gem matches the rocks. This is probabl...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

The command center is there ? First, it doesn't look like command center at all. More like the second-last floor in some random skyscraper. Second, it is probably the most exposed location on the whole station! In case of a battle, it could be easily taken out, even by accident, by some random ship ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

But if you cut away every possible cable to the command center, the station will *think* the command center is down, even if it is not. You might need to turn on WiNi inhibittors too... If you wanted to sabotage the station and had a ton of time (and probably resources) to prepare, that could work. ...
