I think that especially against cloaked ships the side cannons are very useful. You see your shots exploding at your side, then you'll know that (e.g) the Avenger is on top of you.


What game are you playing? You always know where the cloaked ship is, because it's diametrically opposite you on the playing field! Line yourself up so you're facing the middle (EXACTLY) and shoot... bam! bam! bam! Avenger is historic.

I know that. But in a fixed window it would be helpful.
Sometimes i reason without regarding these special circumstances. Especially if you know where a cloaked ship is. I just hate knowing were cloaked opponents are (although i find it very useful to kill him).

In TW you just don't know where your opponent is.
In TW i hate that the computer knows where you are, once you've been visible and his AI has targettet you. He does never lose track of you, even if you're recloaking....

It only keeps track of you for a little bit after cloaking, but there's a random chance that it will "see" you (as if you passed over a star or bumped into an object).

This is one of the things I like more about SC1/2/UQM:  the Ilwrath cloaking is imperfect (it's explicitly stated in the manual as to how you can find them), and its _real_ special ability is the automatic angle-change on de-cloaking.  That's incredibly usefull.

In reply to the original question, I know there are going to be multiple Melee remixes (I'm doing one of them.  Wink)  I'd love to hear a special song for the Sa-Matra, though.

Whaddya say, Riku?  Can I do that one?  Pretty please?

LOL...  While that's seriously off topic, I can't help but reply:
When I joined the TW boards a few years back, the Grand Fot assigned me the subtitle of "Thraddash Flower Child."  To match the title, I made this little avatar.  It's just a Thraddash pilot with a giant lava-lamp sitting behind him (it was either that or a psychadelic colored posey), but I can see how it could be miscronstrued as a futuristic toilet.  It's about time I changed my avatar anyway.  Maybe I'll put a Penguin on a Vidscreen behind him. Wink
