Quote:
The first Scorpion-class battleship was launched only a couple of years ago, and those that have been built are considered to be prototypes. Little is known of its capabilities, but what has been garnered suggests that the Scorpion is crammed to the brink with sophisticated hi-tech equipment that few can match.


The description suggests that the Scorpion is a fairly new design and in fact newer then Raven. But the story "Ruthless" TonyG wrote before "Empyrrean Age", established, that the Scorpion is the older design and the Raven fairly new. According to the description of the Raven Navy Issue, the Raven is at least a decade old, so the Scorpion has to be older then that.

Perhaps you could change it in a way to make clear that the Scorpion is fairly old, but has undergone numerous revisions and the last change a couple of years ago, made the Scorpion an EW Platform, while the versions the Guristas and the Navy use, are an upgrade to the pre EW-ship Scorpion variant.

It's not for Test Server Forum... Try writing bug report. Once i wrote about bug in descrption of Hedion University and they corrected it a bit later (Before it stated that headquaters are located in Hedion (though it is in Sehmy) now it states that the main campus is on Hedion I rather then headquaters)

TonyG Buggered with the PF and fiddled with things that were already set in stone. Take anything TonyG wrote with a pinch of salt.

Regardless, the description is no longer accurate.

I feel they should keep the old Scorpion, change its description to something like "The first generation of the Scorpion battleship was rough around the edges, and is now nearing retirement." Then call the new model Scorpion Mk II, and give it slightly different stats.

This would allow us smelly old veterans to retain some vestige of old Eve, as old models are gradually replaced by new and shiny ones. You could even do another update down the road, where you slap a rust texture on all the Scorp Mk Is to signify their growing crapulence.

I make this plea for sentimental reasons. Even though it looks like a retarded monkey's elbow, I love the current Scorpion as well as the new one. It'd be nice to have, is all. And you don't have to chuck an art asset.
