  1. @liubei013: right i havent seen it in a while, thanks for the correction. I always get forget the acguy's name and end up pluggin something else in that sounds similar to me
  2. From what ive watched so far of GSD everyone seems to be unstable except maybe Ray who has his own issues. Also fried brains would be bad, it would attract to many zombies.
  3. In the 8TH MS team they used a camera in the beam rifle itself to kill the gelgoog when the gundam's head had been destroyed.
  4. You coul always write using a creative commons copy write that lets other use your material and ideas as long as they don't profit from it. And i believe there's a stipulation in there for citing the originator of the idea your using.
  5. i haven't seen anything really annoying about them yet. Id just say as long as their not huge and obnoxious then i dont mind it for the greater good of the site.
  6. That makes sense for a wet-navy ship. but wouldn't a warship in space be more like the sub. You wouldn't need a window. You'd be better off using cameras and such same as the mobile suits themselves. While on that note, the control methods for the ships are not shown very either. The mobile suits kinda make sense but they never show any kind of attitude thrusters on ships they just move while trust comes out the back. The archangel and minerva at least have control surfaces to explain some atmospheric movement. If you watch some other space based anime such as Outlaw star of Banner of the stars they plainly show or explain how the various craft work.
  7. definitely all good points and can't really say i disagree with anything. While i know that the mecha are the primary stars so to speak of the various gundam universe i've just always felt they were to much of an afterthought. For instance the archangel proved to be a powerful and resilient ship why not mass produce it instead of the other that they lost by the score unless their crazily expensive. Also other ship designs have always bothered me somewhat. Like how they have the bridge placed in a very easily damaged location. Since their going to be fighting in an environment where combat will probably fought over large distances, possibly large enough were the unaided eye would be useless anyway. They always talk of senors and such picking up enemy suits. They should embed the bridge deep within the hull. The archangel and Minerva being prime examples its right smack in front. Maybe im just to corrupted by to many sci-fi novels but it seems silly to have the ship have enormous amounts of armor around the ships other components then place the bridge containing all the ships officers in an unprotected location.
  8. Maybe its just me but theres something thats always bothered mt about the various gundam universes. That the spacecraft involved. Other than canon ones shps are about as expendable as toothbrush and as flimsy as pop cans. With all the advancements in technology show in mobile suit use I'd think that they could produce some damnably powerful and much better designed vessels than those shown. The ones they do use seem more and more unoriginal. Since ships have a much longer lived power supply in the CE universe(laser-induced fusion right?) you'd think they could mount some of the shielding tech mounted on suits and make them more survivable. Also think of weapon systems. Imagine a ship equipped with multiple DRAGOON systems each controlled by an independent operator. Ones like on the Destroy would be particularly useful as they have shielding capacity as well. This would make for a powerful spherical defense against attacking mobile suits. A ship equipped with the positronic shields some of the newer suits have would make them more survivable. While thier at it why not give ships PS armor as well? They have the power plants to power it so why not? I just want to know what other think.
  9. Adokis sat in the bay his transport aircraft. An observer wouldn't have thought that he was about to enter into combat. He was relaxed reading a thick book, occasionally glancing up at a digital clock mounted on the back of the hanger. Marking his place in his book he stood up and climbed a short stairway and into the cockpit. The co-pilot turned and glanced at him. "Good timing sir. We will be entering the drop phase in two minutes. Your good to suit up." Said the pilot who never even looked at him, as he kept a close eye on his gauges. Moving back into the hanger he climbed into his Gaia Gundam laying on its back in the hold, nestled in it's APU. Seating himself down he snapped on his helmet and brought the deadly behemoth to life. The subtle blue glow of displays bathed his calm face as the count down approached zero. The clock chimed its anger when the timer ran out and an enormous amount of G-forces were pressed on Adokis's body was the plane plummeted hard downward and leveled out close to the oceans surface as they flew map-of-the-earth to the target area. A second chime sounded. Adokis tapped a key and the hanger door snapped open. Small rockets on the sled under his suit ignited throwing him out of the aircraft. It was right on target. The launch rockets cutting off, four bolts released and the Gaia was free from its constraints. Moving with practiced motions he awoke the suits thrusters and brought the suit down on the southern-most of the islands in the small chain. His opponents would no doubt have seen the aircraft as it approached but hopefully they missed his launching with their low altitude menuever. He popped his suit into its quadrupedal form and moved inward on the island and crouched down in a copse of trees awaiting sign of his foes and his teammate.
  10. Guess i can take turn. A couple of hobbies (Two or more):Writing, reading, building custom PC's, and games Favoured gaming platform: Xbox Favourite part of the Gundam franchise: anime and the mecha, i love most mecha anime. Favourite video game: Unreal tournament 2004, i love blowing things apart A taste of you music playlist:by artist: Kamelot, Voltaire, My chemical romance, Paramore, Jasper Kid, Muse, Within temptation, Cruxshadows, VNV nation, wolfshiem, The hellsing music, many others. If you could switch places with someone for a day, who would you be?: not really anybody at the moment Rate yourself on a scale of one to ten, for talkativeness, ten being highest:9 If you had a quality you could instantly have, what would it be?:don't really know, there'd be a con to anything i can think of
  11. I'm liking it so far. Some interesting ideas, Some of the characters are a little weird looking but that isnt really a problem. All the mecha look familiar not just the gundams. The ones in the intro look exactly like mecha used by Amalgam in Full metal panic TSR, minus the odd crotch cannon. The new buster rifle like weapon is kinda cool looking.
  12. I write short stories and stuff all the time, mostly i just do it cus weird stuff pops in my head and i want to put it down. Ive had a couple published by my University i don't know if that really counts, but i did get 50 bucks for one of em. As for writing a whole novel, i dont know. I can do shorter and medium length things but I usually kill my idea before it gets that long.
