I thought I had heard that sound, too ... yeah, that's probably all "a tad" too much. I think the way D2 does it isn't too bad. A way to make a pilot aware of such a threat would be a less noisy, but still well audible sound and maybe a significantly smaller indicator below the reticle. I think in D2X-XL I print the text "lock" or something in red below the reticle in one HUD mode. The real deal however is that pinging lock sound. Must just be right, not too loud, not too low pitched.

Yeah I hear you. We're thinking of having the reticule flash red as one idea.

I think that would distract the player too much. The reticle has a different purpose. How about making a smaller indicator (LED style or so) below the reticle flash in red and have a good lock indicator sound?

The D2 lock indicator sound is quite good imo. It's not too loud, but that ping - ping - ping - ping will knock at the doors of your attention and make you take notice without being so intrusive that you need to make getting rid of it immediately making your first priority regardless of that making sense in your current situation or not.

This is my dream Ship. With some luck, I can get a better version of this ship in SolC.

Hey guys, I know that we devs have been quiet, but I assure you that we're working hardcore to get you guys a bunch of cool new (and maybe old) stuff. Keep an eye out for new updates!

That concept ship looks like a suppository with wings ... sorry ... :away:

The Talon looks nice, but it also looks very much like a regular airplane.

Why don't you guys take MetalBeast's Phantom XL as a template and model a ship from that?

Well this design is looking to be modified and might see some future. We were shown a beefed up version that looks really nice, but since we want to avoid any IP infringement, we probably will have to change it considerably. I just don't want to post the beefed up version because I don't want anyone stealing this ship from me ;) it's my favorite ship I think.
