Yeah, President Talin has been informed and has given the okay for the full might of the PSR's considerable armada to be brought down on the Core Combine. I mean, those soldiers have been waiting for years to get some action other than sentry duty and policing, and they're going to be ready to kill some war criminals. I think that they'll aid the others in fighting through the guard CC ships, then the job of bombing the planets will be handed over to them and their battlecruisers equipped with nuke-firing railguns.

go, man go! I think the opening should be either defensive or informative, as you really wouldnt be attacking one of us to start: where attacking you.

(not that it matters, could you have 'graidient Senatorial', instead of 'graid Senatorial'? just want to keep proper names for titles and such)

Wow. One day gone and this happens.

Guys, just wanted you all to know:

Really sorry guys, but you guys are gonna have to do this for a while without me as I'm currently being bombarded by unexpected RL things. I hope you understand.

I'll try my best to keep in touch in the meantime, though.

Any GPA member can take control of the organization while I'm gone, though I would prefer it to be UFO, as he is one of the quickest to point out any kinks in the system, which can and will kill the RP if given the chance, or Omega, as he is the de jure leader, after all.

Until then.

Wish me luck...

I think it would work best if the graid acquired FTL travel. though they where only lent the ship to transport their diplomat, like any graid, the passengers immediately examined it and studied it to see how it functioned, and, without the knowledge of the other races at this time, began adapting it to their ships.

Well, Zhukop's going to request you join him so that youcould convince the Legitimately Elected Assembly that war is warranted.  After that you might be given a scout so that you could go home or wherever.

I guess officialy, the war never started; they couldnt pass it in the meeting, so the CC got of easy, and the graid are pissed with no justice being served. but they got FTL travel through it, so now they may take things into their own hands chilepeds.

hey, I got a new villian race. maby they can duke it out with the CC

Hmm in the event that Ground combat occurs maybe I should give some info on the terrestial weapons the Core makes use of? (I have been recently thinking of this)

Oh and a note on all Core Combine worlds regarding ground assault...

-Due to the terraforming spores sometype of armor/mask/something should be worn at all times, the spores can enter if you either inhale or even enter through the skin should the species breath in such a way, and prolonged exposure can make it so that trying to shoot a Core soldier would be like trying to shoot your best friend, also your skin may start turning gray as the spores manipulate your genes... (luckily this will stop if you stay away from the spores for a while the effects of mind control will not be permanent and I am sure your species have the tech to fix any minor gene damage)

-Much like Pandora from Avatar, everything that squats in the mud or works or guards a bio factory will be trying its darn best to kill you... and not necessarily eat you afterwards just kill you... And its not like the fauna is just bigger than usual... you know tyranids? thats what they end up like.
of course ONML will probably fix that but I can't help but be a detail freak...

- In the case of freeing those under Core Combine oppression.... well.... I just can't wait till the Perrachi/Photos/GPA get a first hand look at to what the Skrall do to the Soldiers/Civilians/Sentients they capture and send to the bio factories... the Skrall have no comprehension of what a "War Crime" is...

should we have an element of stategy in this? like a map or something, to better plan things, rather than just more or less random conjecture:

crude example:


obviously, the non CC factions wouldnt have planets in the region at first. just a concept.

I know most of these are free-form. I just think a map would make the war seem to make progress.

Indeed, you got a point there.

The map doesn't have to be fully detailed, just the bare bones, so I guess we can make it in Paint.

If we adopt this, it'll make navigating between different theaters a heck of a lot easier.

Shouldn't there be more ships if this is a major battle? I mean, 12 ships dosen't seem like much. A Photos task force is 25 ships, so I would imagine there would be more ships. Really if this is a main Core Combine system.

Its mostly after the first contact war that they actually go out and start looking for allies, but with so many races allying against them they are willing to accept some help.

cause the graid will be ready in about 429 years (no joke), they are basically out of this one.
 
I know there are already new races in this one, but the area this takes place in is foreign space, so there are lots of things here unknown.

I think the CC could use some offence, and the Iavolg could balance the sides out a bit.
they are rather similar to the CC, in the sense that they force cooporation out of the populace.
so, could I join with the Iavolg?

You and Necro have the finals words, methinks.

Personally, I'm fine with it. Agnasi might even make it into the Top Ten Most Wanted List if the Iavolg do enough damage.





It's still awesome though, even if it is a direct breach of command. >_>

Best of luck to the guys,by the way. They do have a Xynalis Mechanicus with them, right?

YES!

I think its safe to assume the Core Combine and the Ivalog met, fought each other for a bit and then decided to band together to drive out the invaders. Maybe the Riether could also join in, the Core probably bribing them to fight by stopping the war between them and maybe giving a little bit of tech on the side... or maybe like the Ivalog they start to fight together out of necessity.

Hey, Necro:

1. Those PSR nukes are far more powerful than any human nuke. I'd say their destructive capabilities are 1,000 times more powerful than Tsar Bomba, the most powerful human nuke which was 1,400 times more powerful than the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs put together. Combine that with the unbelievable speeds they were traveling at and you get a weapon that destroys targets miles underground, the ultimate bunker buster.

2. Stop godmodding. The Core Combine is, let's face it, no match for the GPA. The PSR have acquired technology from all over the western galaxy, which includes from the Kratair and Sombrerons. Also, the Battlecruisers are 4 kilometers long with plasma and carbon nanotube shields several feet thick. Granted, they aren't totally indestructible, but they're a hell of a lot harder to kill than average ships. Also, take into consideration that several GPA ships there are as big if not larger than the Battlecruisers, and "Operation: Get the Perrachi to Nuke Everything" is the last resort trump card-type option of the GPA.

The Combine can put up a fight, but we all agreed that they were definitely destined to lose.

Makes quite a lot of sense, for me at least. After all, the CC are probably in the "terrorist" category of every major civilization.

The Kratair should probably have an independent battle some time later, so as not to crowd the thread.

That would be pretty effective, but then again, that would retract from the theme of the other creatures, with the Combine focusing more on gravity weapons, with most of the other civs primarily using plasma.

As for the Orealyianis, they prefer SEACESSV-type weapons because it is impossible to physically parry or shield oneself from it. Attempting to do so will be like a boat trying to stop a tsunami. Without space-bending shields, the best the enemy could do is dodge it, which would be equally hard since the moment they sense it is the moment it hits them. :)

Besides, we have fighter planes and power armor in space, which doesn't really make much sense but is awesome nonetheless. ;)

SEACESSVs and MLMs in the fourth paragraph.

If you're having a hard time imagining what MLMs look like, they're basically smart LASER beams designed for use in angular attacks. They are usually deployed in areas where SEACESSVs can cause excessive collateral damage, but can also be used for support fire. :)

1. Admitably I was posting with shadows in my eyes and about to fall asleep, so I do apologize for the god moddingness... So instead the Core Combine is just trying to flank them, and I don’t really see how aiming for a ships big rail guns is god moddy… I mean I think it's only a legitimate strategy…. Like FPS camping… Also ignore the whole boarding thing...

2. I think there are several misconceptions people are getting about Combine ships that I am getting rather annoyed by actually I am rather sick of it, so far only Yuu has been accurate in the fact that Combine formations usually involve "Little bastards in front, big ones in back" and just because the Combine mostly focuses on quantity does not mean they completely sacrifice quality, battleships and dreadnaughts are actually pretty hardy...

by Combine standards 4 kilometers is not that much, a Combine frigate is generally a little under one kilometer and swarms its target, or even goes melee sometimes, a destroyer is mostly 3 to 6 kilometer and stays back with long to mid ranged weapons, a battle ship is usually 10 to 18 kilometers and usually seen as an escort to carriers and dreadnaughts, a carrier is 20 to 27 maybe 30 kilometers and the fighters it releases are pretty damn fast especially the kamikaze variant that was introduced in the Riether/Core Combine conflict and a dreadnaught is a womping 48 kilometers and armed to teeth, and anything targeted by its gravity beam is very unlucky. Granted some of the Orealyanis ships are bigger, but by no means is the Combine totally outsized or outgunned.

Also I believed you depicted a gravity missile being particularly damaging, I should note then that nearly all Combine ships are armed with those.

These misinterpretations are mostly my fault though...

The Combine can put up a fight, but we all agreed that they were definitely destined to lose.

Do not think I have suddenly forgotten that, I could god mod this entire rp (which I won't don't take that the wrong way) and it would still end up like that but…

We agreed they would put a good fight, a good fight in my book does not mean they are going to pathetically role over and die.

  
Plus it will actually be the Combine who calls to negotiate before the rest of their infrastructure is permanently damaged because this is a war not worth fighting… why? Because the Core Combine fights primarily for two things: 1. Resources 2. Slaves, (fulfilling an egotistical superiority complex is just a bonus, though you could also call it compensating for an inferiority complex...) their getting neither from this war, thus it's not worth fighting, so even they realized they f-ed up because they did not want to have to fight this many species. I think this can go on to one or two more battles and then we can have a trial like setting or something…

I will post a responce a later today

Okay.

Though the Shadow should generally stay in the sidelines for now, seeing as things aren't going pretty for the CC in the current area.

When the CC reorganizes in another planet, that's when it will be tactically sound for the Shadow to meld into the CC's defensive line. That would allow for both a clean start and much more organized tactical formations.

Anyways, by the looks of things, the CC should probably be regrouping by now, before the coalition starts to consider performing multiple colony drops, which they will more than likely do if resistance persists.


Smart lasers? How do you make that? A laser is just a beam of light!

Well, of course the beam of light doesn't maneuver itself, that would be retarded.

MLMs work by bending the space that the beam of light is traveling on, which allows it to maneuver across obstacles. An MLM salvo consists of several LASER emitters, sensors and space-bending devices. Once the sensors plot a trajectory towards the target(s), the space-bending devices warp the space between the silos and the target(s), thereby allowing the normally straight beam of light to relatively travel in arcs and angles. From the beam's perspective, it is traveling in a perfectly straight line, but from a spectator's perspective, it seems like it's going in all sorts of directions.

Oh, and the whole SEACESSV thing sounds like a load of technobabble, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

The concept borrows some things from M theory.

Imagine a bed sheet covered in a thick layer of dust. The sheet is the fabric of space (aka the superstring[s]) and the dust are the elementary the particles that make up everything we know (aka the strings). What would happen if someone suddenly threw the bed sheet into the air?

That's basically what SEACESSV-type weapons do. They practically "pull away the carpet from right under their targets' feet", which makes moving out of it's way the only effective strategy.


<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQOT0AU9MaQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQOT0AU9MaQ</a>


The first part showcases a weapon system similar to MLMs, though MLMs are obviously faster since they're made of photons. The latter showcases a weapon very similar to what a SEACESSV-type weapon does.

Hope that helps. :)

Is this relying on string theory? I hope not, because that would only make things stupidly confusing. And string theory, despite the "theory" of its name, is only a hypothesis, but still a possible hypothesis able to be scientifically tested. Here in the GS galaxy, we rely on a lot of hypothetical things, such as wormholes and exotic matter.

Still, I see nothing wrong with the homing lasers. Carry on.

EDIT: Wait a minute, I detect godmodding. 48 kilometers long, Necro? That's about 10 miles long! A kilometer is the length of a football field! Please try and do your research before jumping in.

Yeah Necro, most juggernauts aren't that big. Even the Photos' Superjuggernaut isn't that big, and If my memory serves right,the only thing bigger than a Superjuggernaut in class relation is a Worldship. And I tell you, those things are generally not mass-produced warships.

You do know that 48 kilometers is absolutley gargantuan right?  Why is it so big?  Are they big just for the sake of being big?  A Kratairia Capital Ship, which is the biggest I've used so far, is only about 15 kilometers and has more than enough firepower to instantly eradicate a planet.  The majority of Kratairian ships are between 1.5 and 10 kilometers.

Personally, size isn't much of a problem for me as long as it fits their role:

Brown-water vessels being relatively small due to not having to travel vast distances.

Blue-water vessels being quite big, but not too big.

Now, blue-water flag vessels. These need to be able to act as emergency bases of operations for indefinitely long periods of time, with the most advanced ones usually having a small town inside of them, any size is fine with me, as long as they don't approach the 100km mark, which would already be...

Worldships, and to a lesser extent flag vessels of an entire military, whose sizes are pretty much related to the distances it travels, which could range from inter-galactic (Wexxian Exodus) right up to inter-universal (Project Talsenreave).

Of course, that's just me.

It could be that the Core Combine have bigger tech, hence a bigger frame to contain it.

Please try and do your research before jumping in.

A dreadnaught was always that big, no one said anything before

I would not really say that they have big, inefficient, and clunky tech, its just I always intended a dreadnaught to be big and by extension have big guns, not ridiculously big of course. (which I thought was the 100km mark)

The hangars in the carriers are about the same size as the hangars in the arms of the VO.

So I'd guess about 300 to 400 kilometers in carrier mode, from cannon-tip to leg thrusters.

yea, if nobody is realy into the war, we can just end it quickly, the CC decided you would surrender (not using that word, of course), go peacable with the GPA and other races, and be allowed to reclaim Felron (maybe)

Well as cowardly as it may sound the CC wants to end the war before that happens...

they are arrogant only to a certain extant but they are by no means stupid, they want to end the war before more resources are lost unnecessarily

Their goal is not truly to win the war, but they don't want to truly lose it either...

The assimilated sentient beings, though.

How would the CC get around that matter, not just with the GPA, but with the Libera Unio and the other pro-sentient members of the galactic community? :-\

There have been matters when slave using species managed to coexists with others....

Plus how where they supposed to know people had problems when you stuck needles, grafter bionics, and installed mind manipulating devices into other species? They have been doing it since... well.... (currently under construction story spoilers, cannot reveal)

If anything they would suggest that they should simply keep contact to a minimum, they don't really see their enslavement of other species as wrong but they realize the sheer difference in culture would likely become a problem.

They understand that they are blamed for the hostilities, but they do not understand the concept of war crimes

Indeed, there are several races which do use slaves. However, most of those slaves were naturally non-sentient, being the Earth equivalent of domesticated animals. And in the rare instances where the slaves are sentient, they're usually a part of a hive-like caste system, like in ants, termites or mole-rats.

Additionally, if I recall correctly, slave-using civilizations used beings which were mostly, if not completely, home-grown, not acquired through military means.

There are, however, some exceptions to this norm. Though they are usually residents of the inner rim, which has traditionally been the Earth equivalent of war-torn Africa.

Currently on hold as peace talks are being held at the "The Station" thread.

Also, Simply hasn't replied in it for a while.

I can't wait for the shenanigans that will ensue once the Core return home to see the massive infestation. ;D

Its all fun and games until someone releases the nano-tech plagues...

seriously though, Felron is the Core's homeworld and there not going to give it up. Unless Agnasi's somehow a team player and is willing to give it up without a fight... (Didn't we agree that the Ivalog where somehow joining the Coalition?)

he would give it up per your request. Agnasi doesn't hold onto planets anyway, and It wouldn't be worth the effort to fight over it (and yes, he will join and help form the coalition)

I guess that pretty much sums it up.

Let's go guys, psycho-therapy is going to be a pretty booming industry for quite some time.  8)

Would you do the honors, GG?  :)
