question regarding watercannons
« on: May 19, 2010, 18:57:28 »

hi, i was just strolling through some of the posts on the new extremes section when i came across a response to the post 'new things' by frank_vstep which included the following line:

'But no missiles in Extremes I'm afraid, only cannons you'll be able to shoot are watercannons!'

i also remember seeing a photo of some emergency reponse tugs fire fighting a rig

so i was curious how the fire fighting would be intergrated into missions (assuming it is at all), what boats would be capable of it, how a fire fighting cannon would be controlled by the player, whether it could be used for a form of 'paintball style' combat, or whether it just automatically comes online when you hit a way point

kind regards

Hi 02ian,

Yes, FIFI capability is in SSE, and in the missions.
The details on how it is used will probably have to wait until it is released.
SSE provides much more capability for controlling equipment on ships.

Marty

By my guess i would think the following Ships would be capable of this


The RPA12 as in SS08 does have the fire cannons on them

The Whaling Vessels if they are Playable and on AI to repel the Greenpeace Ships from intervening

SSE provides much more capability for controlling equipment on ships.


does this mean we can expect fetures like on-deck cranes where fitted, deck ramps on ferrys, ability to control lighting and other external equipment of a similar nature in the future, or is that just getting my hopes too high?

probably too late to put it in, but it would be nice to see an intergrated VHF style multiplayer communication interface (for those of us who have are certificates), as it would greatly improve realism... maybe an idea for a future add-on or game version if theres no way to get it in this one

even if we can't get this i'm still quite excited about the fire fighting... how long till we can expect pre-order to start?

kind regards 02ian

Hi 02ian,

Except a selected few, nobody knows exactly what we can expect in SSE. We'll just have to wait and see i guess.

Teamspeak is often used for vocal communication on multi player. As far as i know, IJTS is the only one at this moment who is offering a teamspeak server where English is the working language. More info can be found here

This whole thing about equipment on the ships having a larger role, does this possibly include launching Zodiacs/Lifeboats from larger ships? That would be quite cool.

I think that was just one of the RHIBs from the Frigate. But i wonder if you control them from the Frigate or you use it as a separate vessel

I see no reason why the RHIB would be controlled from the frigate, certainly the RHIB has a wheelhouse view which is only obtainable for player vessels in SS08.

Hope we can launch it!  :thumbs:


 !:) Trailer Launching for the RHIBs, Jetski, and powerboats?

I think this is the wrong place to post those pictures. Try the 'video and images topic'.

Hi guys,

I don't want to put a downer on things, and this is ONLY speculation, but although we might be able to launched boats from vessells, you must consider HOW they will be launched.

Afterall, we might just press a button on the interface, and we spawned into the launched boat rather than seeing it actually be put into the water.

Obviously I could be wrong and actually see them lift them into the water! :)

As long as it can be lowered into the water, that's good enough for me!

I probably was thinking a bit too advanced though, I was thinking you would have to press a button on either side of the Davit and then lower it down with a winch!!  :doh:
