Siege Drivers

Post by Jakegamer1 » Wed Oct 19, 2011 10:09 pm

Hello Everyone,

Has there been any word on whether or not siege drivers are in the game? If so would they fit in the new highest level of turret? I seem to remember those were for Heavy Beams and Impactors which are an order of magnitude smaller than a siege driver. I also read that LV's only have one section and only 2 types are shipping with the game. Would this mean no SD's on LV's, or is there a possibility of an SD module for LV's?

I'm not sure about on Leviathans, but I'm 99% certain that I saw two SD dreads in the cinematic intro, just before the Sword of the Stars dreadnaught is smashed to bits by a Suul'ka. You can see them at around 3:00 in this video.

As for turret-ed SD's, I don't think that's likely. Seeing the size of them, you'd need something bigger than a Leviathan in order to mount those on turrets.
When one makes something fool-proof, they inevitably fail to take into account the ingenuity of fools.

Yeah I was thinking it was unlikely they would be turreted. Still would be interesting to see them as modules for Leviathans though. I agree those do look like Siege Driver Dreads but they could just as easily be something new too. Upgraded Impactor perhaps :insane: ?

I'm sorry. I thought I'd heard of Dreadnaught sized modules, and was just umm.... :oops:

EDIT: I didn't think it was too big. I'm sorry if it came off as a stupid question.

No, a dreadnought fits around a siege driver. Barely.

I think it would be more apt to say that a dreadnought engine is powerfull enough to move a siege driver. And not much else beyond that.

Even if you can't put a Siege Driver on a LV, you might be able to build some SD battleships (DN sized riders - right?) and carry these on your LV.

Triple siege drivers carried by a leviathan, albeit indirectly... Not a bad idea really.
