View Full Version : Best Speciality ship, Better selection
3rd Dec 01, 3:10 PM
the other one had a very very limited amount of selections, im recreating the poll for a better and wider choice
Turanic Raider Standard corvette is in there because of its abilities, other than its 2 cannons it can mimic and salvage
3rd Dec 01, 3:13 PM
ack, forgot salvage corvette, can a moderator put that on?
Hmm, how is a standard corvete special?

already stated in first post
It has Mimic and Salvage

There is no Turanic Missle Corvette, which gets my vote.

i think mimics are useless exept for spying
Standard Corvettes, its basiclly a salvage corvette with 2 cannons and mimicing ability, a good lot of stuff in one corvette
Salvage Corvettes, simple, but standard corvettes are alot better
Gravwell generator, yeah, they kick strike craft's butt
the reason missile corvette isnt in there is cuz it has no special abilities, its the raider's heavy assault corvette
Actually, the Missile Corvette can fire a large (80? 100? 120?) volley of missiles something like 100,000 kilometers. In other words, it has a special ability. Capture a few in original HW and press the 'z' key to find out.

you mean 100,000 meters right?
4th Dec 01, 5:47 PM
those are combat/speed abilities, if they were on there a good deal of ships would be in that list (virtually 1/2 of homeworld ships and practically all of cataclysm ships)

I think the missle thing was a bug. Cata had it too, but they fixed it in the patch.

*I think mimics are useless except for spying* LOL perhaps you should playa cata more before you say silly stuff like that :P.
5th Dec 01, 3:16 PM
i did, they were also useful however, for mass suicides, but standard corvettes would do much more damage, but theyre way to expensive to waste like that
why choose mimics when u can choose standard corvettes, they have 2 cannons, WITH mimic ability, with an added bonus, salvage ability
that already puts the mimic, salvage corvette, and light corvette out of buisness there

There is a proper name for Turanic "Standard" Corvette.
It's called by canon, a "Thief" class corvette.
The Thief has no ability of mimic in Homeworld. It only has so in Cata as an NPC, and which the storyline suggests, its capture help introduce the mimic technology to the Somtaaw.
The storage onboard the craft can be used for other things, including the possiblity of cloaking equipment or a boarding party.
Basically as the design goes, the Turanics appear to be using the same Corvette chassis, and given the equipment, it either becomes a Thief class corvette, or a Brigand class Missle Corvette.
Salvaging and mimicing abilities are not accessible even if you use the Mission Editor to install Thief corvettes into the game. Neither can captured examples have these abilities for some reason.

There's also a "proper" name for the defender, but I'm pretty sure that people don't refer to it as "Sajuk Cor" or something like that.

Kushan Defender: Shield Mk.3b
Taiidan Defender: Seejur
Most of the time I call ships by their "code names" The Hammer, ect.

The point is there isn't anything "standard" about a Thief corvette. It's reference as standard caused me some initial confusion.
Do you call Acolytes ' Missile Interceptors '?

What happends with the Kushan Suport Frigates? i think you forget it because are the best ships in HW, can moderator add the kushan SF, my vote goes in
