    HARDWARE: Shipbreakers - R & P Salvage

    Okay! So I reailze that we're probably like four to six months away from being able to play, but I am a maniac, and I purchased VIP Package #3!

    Therefore I feel like it is my HOLY DUTY to start organizing people who, like me, ARE MANIACS WHO WANT THIS GAME TO BE THE BEST THING EVER.

    Post in this thread + think about joining the steam group (which will probably be fairly unused but will provide a way to drag people into a chat room) here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/RPS...HWShipbreakers

    Also, feel free to tell me what other names for the group I SHOULD have used. (I have gone with R & P Salvage since it should somewhat fit in with the in-game fiction. Other possibilities I considered included Rock Paper Shipbreaker, and Rock Paper Sand.)

    EEEE I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS DID YOU GUYS SEE THE NEW TRAILER HOLY CRAAAAP~

    Rock Paper Shipbreakers?

    Also, posting all the trailers because of the vast amount of awesome contained here in.



    So a base runner = mothership, amirite?

    Imagine saying base runner in the same way Miss S'jet says mothership.

    I would have gone with RP Shipbreakers as it keeps the 'in-character' corporation feel but does not force my stupid brain to pronounce it "R kaufmännisches Und P Shipbreakers" in my mind.

    Oh, also i too cannot wait to play the game!

    I'm definitely pinning for this, but other than fantastic artwork, a great concept and a strong pedigree, I'm not excited yet... but I am hopeful this will be totally amazing. I mean, it has to be, right?

    Very excited about this game. Hopefully it turns out good. It has too...

    Also loving "RP-Salvage" or "RP-Shipbreakers".

    Maybe just 'R. P. Salvage'? It'd look great stencilled on the side of a Baserunner...

    I'm very interested to see how this turns out. Like everyone I know absolutely nothing about this game will play but damn do I want to play it!

    R Paint Strippers ;)

    OR yeah R.P. Salvage sounds good. Im right in thinking this is a F2P game though?

    I have read some disturbing rumours that this will be multiplayer only, is this correct?

    I really dislike that video. Obviously the flyers, but that should be fixed. But also i have some atmosphere issues with it. For example the baserunners cockpit loos wierd for a machine of that size. But what annoys me the most is the end. The rest of the vid has a good vibe of a small scale unit of mercenaries or salvagers looking for richies in the wild. But then the apparently manned aircraft get slaughtered and the commander sounds almost bored when he says 'So much for easy money.' Sounds like loosing friends or colleagues and expensive equipment means very little to him despite that beeing a substantial part of his whole operation.

    Actually the design of the escort vehicles screams 'DRONES' at me at high volume. Expect the pilots to be based in the baserunner.

    That would be my guess, or maybe even more remote a location for the 'pilots'. If so then I'm interested to see where this goes, maybe towards structures that limit what you can build, like air control centres and the more that gets upgraded from the materials you find/sell the more drones you can accomodate.

    I highly doubt they are in the baserunner. He says 'passing your position' when flying above the baserunner. That would be a kinda wierd thing to say if it was also their position.

    There's something about the teasers and concept art for this game that is beautiful and compelling. I love everything about them, right down to the choice of font for the titles.

    I'm disappointed that it's apparently F2P and even more disappointed that there's no mention of single player.

    But I really want to play it.

    Quick show of hands, who hanging around here has access to a copy of Homeworld 1? Maybe we should get in some 'training' work done up in space before landing...

    I pulled mine out recently.

    I also recovered my copy of Homeworld 1 from the loft too.

    You thinking a retro games night or some such?
