Dreadnaught Cruiser Saucer Seperation
 
Just wondering...what ever happened to them releasing this?

I don't really remember anymore. I know a developer commented on it months ago though. I forget if it was a technical problem or a marketing problem (i.e. do people who own both the Galaxy-X and Galaxy-R get the updated ship for free or a discount). I'm sure someone around here remembers the details.

There were problems with the mechanics of the lance, and then they had animation issues with how the saucer would align when rejoining - it clipped through the 3rd nacelle. That is the last I remember hearing about it.

How does this differ from the insame amount of clipping issues with just about every costume in the game, amoung many others?

That would be a question for the art department. :)

In a related vein, I also know they were working on being able to saucer separate and MVAE separate while in motion. I wonder what happened to that also?

Every so often we get another sound byte that indicates they are closer to having it all ready. While it really has been going on for some time, this recent bug with the separation ships gives me hope they are actually really doing something with it, and some less-than-ready portion of it slipped on to live...

I can dream, can't I?

Maybe, maybe not.

What I'm afraid of is the nerfs we'll be taking in order to separate the saucer.

If clipping is such a problem (from the looks of it, not that much), why not just have the saucer re-dock with the stardrive section in reverse from the front?

It might look a bit silly, but hell at this point, that doesn't really matter these days. :rolleyes:
