Hahaha thanks! If I wasn't lazy, I would photoshop the background into something cool and fitting.
How about the bodies of slaughtered younglings?
lol if you make it for me, I'll use it.
So far Bloodfin Emu has declared JtL as their next publish, as I have stated before PreCU favors player Cap ship deployment due group size. I'm in my final stages of ship scale/balancing of weapons and system redundancy damage reduction, that being said I require input regarding final two remaining models of Rebel and Neutral faction.
What input would you like?
So far I've gone as high as cruiser class restricted to 500m in length, looks like this.
Alliance Navy Ships: MC40a Light CruiserInnate Hull DR 50%:Minimum Crew 14-201 Captain/Navigator1 Co Pilot/ECM Ops12 GunnersThis vessel deploys 4 Turbo Laser Batteries, 8 Ion Cannon Batteries, & upto 6 starfighters or 1 PoB.
The Nebulon B escort Frigate Innate Hull DR 30%:Minimum Crew 141 Captain/Navigator1 Co Pilot/ECM Ops12 GunnersThis vessel boast 6 Turbo Laser Batteries, 6 Laser Cannons.In addition to being exclusively Rebel faction it's speed and maneuverability should be the slowest of the two.
The Corona class Frigate Innate Hull DR 27%:Minimum Crew 141 Captain/Navigator1 Co Pilot/ECM Ops12 GunnersThis New Republic vessel has 4 Turbo Laser Batteries, 4 Ion Cannon Batteries, and 4 Laser Cannons.
Imperial Navy Ships:
Gladiator class Star Destroyer Innate Hull DR 50%:Minimum Crew 14-201 Captain/Navigator1 Co Pilot/ECM Ops12 GunnersThis vessel deploys 8 Turbo Laser Batteries, 4 Laser Cannons, upto 6 starfighters or 1 PoB.
Imperial-class Star Frigate Innate Hull DR 35%:Minimum Crew 141 Captain/Navigator1 Co Pilot/ECM Ops12 GunnersThis vessel employs 4 Turbo Laser Batteries, 4 Ion Cannon Batteries, 4 Laser Cannons
The Lancer class Frigate Innate Hull DR 25%:Minimum Crew 121 Captain/Navigator1 Co Pilot/ECM Ops10 GunnersThis star fighter hunting vessel enjoys moderate speed increases over the Nebulon B and employs 10 quad laser cannons and no Turbo Lasers,
The CR90 Corvette Innate Hull DR 15%:Minimum Crew 8 1 Captain/Navigator1 Co Pilot/ECM Ops6 Gunners2 turbo lasers on a CR90 Corvette, followed by 4 traditional anti star fighter turret cannons. The CR90's saving grace will be it's inherent speed and maneuverability over the Nebulon-B escort frigate or Imperial Lancer class Frigate.
All looks good. I wonder though, will there be any AI controlled weaponry? Or is all of it human controlled?
Also, I'm not aware of what ships are currently in game for models to be used, but there need to be more ships for the independants. Perhaps this? http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Action_VI_transport
I believe you would want to create new models for these ships, correct? Since most of them aren't in the game.
Another point, the Nebulon-B should have fighter and POB capacity, since it's in other games and movies. Or would you rather take it out for balance reasons?
This ship may be good for the independants as well: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Crusader-class_corvette
Let me know what other imput you would like. It all looks like good work!
Well I considered much larger ships as the Hull Innate DR represents a ships length, thus max is 90% versus star fighter scale weaponry.As for multiple weapons often available on warships,perhaps link turrets too a particular gunner arc like port, starboard, topside, belly, etc.As much as I would love to accurately represent each warship, I've lowered the actual weapon count from 6-18 for more strategic player input.JTL demands restrictions towards available firepower in a given arc, as Weapon Batteries will almost never drain the capacitor to endanger the vessel.I don't wish to make 1000m player ships completely over powered, players are to play a iconic roles in fleet combat.And as you are aware group size is limited to 20 players, I am aware in NGE pilots could invite additional players/groups as guest. It maybe possible to implement their star fighters for ship board launch as seen in Star Wars Battlefront.The Mandolorian Corvette is ok, but the Action VI Transport is unarmed a little more than a target.
Ok I have some new thoughts and considerations I'd like you to review.
