Bug? Tactical Carrier - no new model?
 
The patch notes, if I read them correctly, indicated that the ar'kif and ar'kala would be getting an art update to display a hangar bay on the model with the addition of a hangar bay to the ship's abilities.

I'm not seeing any changes at all to the ship models though, in the ship tailor. Did the new art not get put through or what?

The new hangar is visible on the underside of the tactical warbird's hull, but it is very small due to the fact that the warbirds are so large. it is easiest to see on the Ar'kala skin, look for the red lights that outline the hangar door.

In that case, they should ahve made two varients. One that is a carrier, and one that isn't with different stats (sych as reduced hull for the carrier) to further offset them.

That would entirely defeat the point of adding the hanger bay. It was an attempt to stop it being totally outclassed by the Scimitar and the Mogai/Dhelan/T'Varo retrofits.

What drugs have you been taking

Why even post this, why even bother looking

You need a hobby or a new grind...

Ok, I took a second look and I see it now... it's tiny compared to the rest of the ship, I was hoping for something more akin to the atrox's bays (like a single one down the middle).

This looks more like just a regular shuttlebay on any fed ship, kinda disappointing but more appropriate I suppose.

You're right that it's much easier to spot on the ar'kala hull, the other barely shows it. Since only the retrofit ar'kif has the hangar slot, it would have been nice if they had added a third set of ship components - head, hull, wings, nacelles, and exhaust ports, to improve overall customization. Instead we're still stuck with just the two.

Yeah, hanger craft never actually fly out of hangers. Even with Vo'quv, Kar'Fi & Atrox, they still often appear in the middle of nowhere.

But the hanger on the Ar'Kif is definitely there, and quite brightly illuminated.

Well, Forgive me! I was a little fatiuged and had some spelling errors. It happens to the best of us.

I was saying that the hull for the carrier should be less than the non-carrier version. By getting the hangar, there is a trade off. And those who want the varient WITHOUT the hangar should get something in exchange.
