I had an idea for escape pods, using something similar to the shuttle launch framework so when a ship is hevily damaged it triggers something to launch lifeboats, i know this could slow down some systems with all the extra models in play, but it would add a little bit of realism. I could design some Galaxy Class escape pods, based on the TNG Technical Manual. I cant script to save my life tho. I'll start workin on some models as soon as i get my comp back up and running (its a bit mashed up right now and im getting broadband on thursday :confused: ) anyone interested, let me know.

I believe that the QuickBattle Replacement had this function.

I never knew that. You learn something new every day! lol :D I dont like the Sovereign Type escape pods, and ive always wanted to see the Galaxy class ones in action, i'll look into making one. Thanks for the advice though.

Quick question for you, were you talking about the Transport option in Brex's control panel?

No that one is a bit buggy, but anyway. No I read it somewhere that when your ship is about to blow Miguel lauches a lot of shuttles, I'll try and see if I can find where I have read it.

I would love to see that! The reason im interested in this is just because i want to see a Galaxy Class escape pod in action. Once i learn Max a bit more i'll give building one a try. Its only a truncated cube, with a few surface details, easy enough to make a low poly version, for an abandon ship mod.

I think they will only use the stock ones... If that is what you mean.

Yeah, they probaly will. But a galaxy or Nebula launching Sovereign escape pods would look weird. As far as i can tell, only 3 escape pod types were shown for use on Starfleet ships, The Sovvies, the Galaxy's (from the TNG: Technical Manual) & the Intrepid's from "Year of Hell Pt2" Thats what i want to see, is a variation on escape pods, and canon ones for each ship.

This is what the Galaxy/Nebula escape pods look like (or as the TNG Technical Manual says ASRV's).
