Two eyes? I haven't heard that one. I wasn't talking about the ship, though, I was talking about the composition of the shot. I actually like the ship all right, it's just that they made it far too flat.

That must be the light from the front of the engine housings, at least it appears that way.

It's supposed to be more "modern" and sleek looking. :wink:

But I'm not sure I like that single headlight in front, if that's a headlight. Looks like a one-sided bulbous glowing nose or something. Ruins the symmetry of the ship.

I doubt the Torch is a final design though. They whipped it up pretty quick!

Yes, it should look as cool glowing turbine engine, not as cheap neon lights.

remember that this is a prequel and thus an early version of the GX. ;) so yeah, it's going to look a bit different. Being an earlier version, it seems reasonable that the intakes and engines were positioned on top if the body rather than incorporated into it as the GX was.

I agree. The Torch is likely to change.

Remember, there will also be other noses and tails and wings available later on.

dunkelza, I'll tell you just a friendly. The word "Torch", if you say it in Russian, this designation hopeless drug addict. And it will be in the very negative sense.

Thanks! Is the word you are discussing spelled "факел", "topч", or a different way? Thank you!

There is a slang expression "торчок". It sounds like a "torch". It knows every Russian.
I was glad to help you.

dunkelza, in my opinion, the best alternative name of "Torch" is a "Ginger"

Ooooh, "Ginger" is not going to fly. That describes someone who has red hair in English, or that root vegetable used in Asian cooking. I still like the "Pyro" name though.

Thank you! It is good to know.

I do not know that this knowledge will change the name, but maybe if there is a Russian translation they will change the name.

It is not for me to decide.

Thank you for the information!

suggestions for russian localization for torch:

горелка (gas jet burner)

факел (torch in the sense of a burning branch, possibly brazier)

No, it's bad. If we can not use the name "Pyro" in the new game, the nicest synonymous would "Flame" or "Roar"

Not a bad version, but too straightforward. We do not go to drop napalm bombs on Vietnam? Should be succinct and at the same time romantic name. I don't know, maybe "Hephaestus" or "Prometheus"... Or something of the names of these real spacecraft.

I think that's the mining beam...
