I have received your contribution, thank you very much. :) Oh you're a VA(voice actor)? That's awesome, if you're looking for projects I'll definitely try to recommend you when my colleagues start looking for one! xD

no not a Voice Actor... sorry about the confusion I'm a US Veteran and VA is an acronym for Veteran's Affairs who have hospitals and other benefits for veterans and i receive disability payments from the dept of treasury through them due to my time and occurances in the military.

I'm with Deadeye on this one- wish I knew about the IGG as well, hah! Is there any way us unfortunates can somehow still get into the beta? I'm sure we can pay for the privilege.

I didn't know anything about this game until I came onto the Sunrider section.

Definitely interested in seeing it unfold.
(The ship art reminds me of FTL (http://www.ftlgame.com/) somewhat)

Welcome, Selene! Always good to have more people interested in Sierra Ops I'm looking forward to seeing how this goes myself :D. I was reminded of SPAZ myself, but I can see FTL there as well. I believe damage is location sensitive as well, so you'll be able to destroy different parts of each ship.

Ah. SPAZ. Forgot about that.
I have that one too- haven't played it in a long time, though.

The idea that you can target specific sections is neat too.
(also similar to FTL, though this gives me a more modular feel)

I should finish SPAZ - haven't even gotten up to the 'twist'. SPAZ 2 is out or coming out soon, too.

Assuming they haven't changed it since last I checked, combat focuses more on the piloting, power management and commands, since your weapons are turrets. You'd choose targeting priorities and then fly to the side you'd want to shoot. Keep hammering the starboard side, for example, and you can take out all the guns there and properly destroy the ship instead of lightly damaging all segments. As you said, each ship has its own modules.

Neat.
I can't actually try it out. So, I'll just mention that it sounds neat.
