Bahhh...You don't wanna fly that slow , sluggish, honkin' huge target anyway.......

Welcome to Wraith, Fermin
For you new guys.
I think it's time you put on the uniform and get those Sigs looking squared away. If you are unsure how to do it...run a search or ask one of us.
Everything needs to be looking ship-shape for when the FLEET gets under way....

Would it be possible for me to get the url for that Wraith SOG Holo-Insignia?
Also, I don't know if you and Tac have gotten as far as doing Asset assignments but if I had any say in the matter ( which I probably don't ) I would still go with a Megaron.

Have used battlecom before....have found Teamspeak to be more stable...better voice quality and I like the features better also.
however we use the TS 1.5 version because we found it to be less laggy than the 2.0 version.
Welllllll, ya need speakers and a microphone....to cut down on feedback alot of people prefer headsets with mics. that is it...then all ya have to do is run the program and type in the IP and start chatting away.
To Join Wraith Fleet just go down to our Forum and leave a message for either Tac or Tyrn and let them know that you would like to be in Wraith and they will take it from there.

I think he is teasing us...lol
If anyone is interested, I am running a teamspeak server. That way if you want to chat and talk trash while we wait for the servers to become fully operational....feel free. You can find the particulars here
Got mine today at EB games.

Left ya a message at Wraith Forum, You are almost exactly a year late with that tactic.
So It should rightfully be called the " Stormshadow maneuver"
The time when we get to meet each other in battle is near. In order to help facilitate the coordination of the Fleet I am running a Voicecomm server on my computer.
I am using the program Teamspeak 188.8.131.52 , and you can get it here or at my Mechwarrior 4 Clan's website here in the links section.
Anyone who wishes to use it is welcome. I will try to keep it up at all times.
The IP is 184.108.40.206

It's great to have you back. My email is [email protected]

That's the best news I have heard all year. Hope things are going well for you. Hope to see your ship docked at Wraith HQ soon.

Cmdr Tyrn Marcel was Tac's XO and also Wing Leader of Wraith SOG of which I am In.....But Cmdr Marcel has regrettably retired and his ship has been decommisioned....
I know we don't have to worry about this until later, But we should try to keep some kind of Command and Control in the Fleet.
I brought this up several months ago and got little response.......

I'm really sorry about that... I checked the VCF....but it was really late and there are just so many Items in the 1.08 patch... I guess I missed it.
I know that you've been working hard on this patch SC, so I hope you accept the following in the spirit in which it is given.
I've been doing the math, and at this speed it would take about 166.6 Minutes or 2.7 hours of game time to travel 150k km ( a distance I selected for the average distance between anomalies....I know that this number is incorrect) and about 1166.2 minutes or 19.43 hours for a long range probe to complete it's remaining 7 jumps.
After going "in game" to look at this some more, The TIR shows over 650,000 km between the "to earth" jump point and the " to Sirius" wormhole, in the Jupiter zone....I don't understand that, if the zones are 250k km, but that journey would take the probe over 12 hours game time ...( it also happens to be where I launched the probe in question and the order that I gave it) .
As is, the benefits of carrying anything other than short range probes are neglible, especially in a military sense.
When designing the probes did you ever consider giving them a "burn-out" hyperdrive. Please forgive my ignorance, I really don't know how much of a problem it would be to write the code for something like that.

I've i've done a clean install of BCM and patched up to RC24 and started playing.
I've launched several probes and they don't seem to be behaving as before.......They are travelling very slow. When I launched one in the Jupiter zone and ordered it to jump to Sirius it started that way.....but after several hours it still isn't even halfway to the wormhole.
Is this correct behavior? Is anyone else having this experience? They seemed to move much faster before.

The fact that I hold some political views in common with Jaguar has nothing to do with my stance here today.
Jaguar has, As many of us here have, are or will be putting ourselves in harm's way out of love for this country and it's Ideals.
It saddens me that you don't recognize that Jaguar's dissatisfaction with certain trends in government stem from his deep love for this country and the principles it was founded on, and that his passion is fueled by his desire to see that his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren are able to enjoy those same rights and freedoms.
That does not mean that I think that you or anyone else is unpatriotic because they don't agree with everything that I believe or that Jaguar believes.
I would've thought it improper for Jaguar to tell you to leave this country under the same circumstances.
The beauty of this country is that we can disagree with each other but still find common ground in the fact that we are all Americans and that we have the freedom to disagree and to debate these weighty topics.
As for the instances that you have found offensive as a man of color. I think that perhaps it would be worthwhile to explore those cases with the members of this community.A Heated debate may insue, but I see nothing wrong with that.an earnest discussion of this type of problem may foster a deeper understanding and tolerance for all participants. I see this as much preferable to keeping silent and and perhaps harboring resentment for such statements.
Because of the limitations of this medium of interaction, it is often easy to misinterpret the correct intentions of statements because we are unable to gauge level and tone of voice and body language. I don't know if this might be the case in the instances that you mentioned but it might be worth exploring.
I have reread my post several times and can't find the spot where I implied anyone was stupid.....In fact I tried to be very positive about the high quality of the debates on this forum and encouraged them to continue.....
I did state that some viewpoints were inconceivable to me....but that just means that I don't understand how certain conclusions were arrived at.......it doesn't speak at all about anyone's intelligence level.........I'm not real good with quantum mechanics either.
I had pretty much decided to just remain here in lurker mode after partipating in many discussions along this vein and realizing that, in spite of logic, common sense, and statistical evidence, seemingly good, intelligent people still support this type of assault upon our constitutional liberties.
I remain as proud to be a member of this community today as I was the first day I joined. This forum has continued to attract the best and brightest people from all walks of life, all ages, and many different countries. We come together here and share ,not only our joy and pleasure in gaming, but also our views on politics, theology, morality, science and just about every other thing under the sun.
We come here because the vigilance and integrity of the SC, the moderators and the community as a whole, have made this a place where we can voice our opinions, thoughts and beliefs, secure in the knowledge that somebody out there will force us to refine, focus, and yes, maybe even append or disregard those viewpoints by exposing us to new information, different points of view or differing personal experience.
Here we are challenged to look at ourselves and our beliefs and decide whether they are based on fact, logic, and common sense and not just some legacy of unanalyzed social programming that we picked up along the way. Here we are encouraged to seperate the chaff from the wheat.
(Oh yeah, Almost forgot......We come here also because BCM is a KICKA$$ game)
I've abstained from many of these discussions because there are many here who offer the same viewpoints that I have and are more than willing to engage in the thrust, parry and riposte. So, as much as I hate to admit it.....my posts would probably be very redundant.
However, this morning I felt compelled to offer my .02.
There are several things in this thread that disturbed me this morning.
Fox, I was really puzzled and surprised to see this post under your name.
Ep5, no matter how much knowledge he aquires about the U.S., It laws, and the U.S. Constitution, Is still only an observer.
Like the military historian who knows all the details of all the great battles of history down to the smallest minutiae, and can rattle off the specs to every weapon ever made. He might tell of comraderie and valour on the battlefield but unless he has been in the military, he can not tell you what it is to BE a soldier......No matter how many orders of battle he knows or how many military manuals he memorizes.....he is an observer.
Of course there is nothing wrong with that....it's just the way things are.
I think it is pretty apparent that Jaguar's statement was more along that line of thought than a put-down or slur about him being a Canadian.
It is this post by Race that really disturbed me.
I am somewhat disappointed and angered by not only the tone of this post but also the thought process behind it. and although it seems Jaguar didn't take offense to it, I'm afraid I have to.
To suggest that Jaguar should leave this country because he Believes wholeheartedly in our constitution and vocally denounces an attempt by our government to pervert or Illegaly change that document and the liberties guaranteed therein, is indeed an insult.... not only to him, but to me as well, because I agree with him wholeheartedly.
What, I think, Jaguar takes issue with is any system of Government in the UNITED STATES that is NOT completely based on the Constitution and that is constantly trying to assault the inalienable rights given us by that Document.
Our forefathers bled and died to afford us this freedom and it is our duty and resposibility to maintain the integrity of that sacrifice against ALL enemies DOMESTIC and foreign.
It is inconceivable to me that, In light of the corruption, Immorality, and Greed in our government today even with those rights still in place, that you could believe that were they removed,we wouldn't be crushed under foot.
History has shown us a very different picture.
Just my thoughts.
I have really enjoyed reading these debates people....keep up the good work.
And to a few of you I've never spoken with before.
I like your style.
You, my dear, are a rare Gem.
