Does all armor drain energy when recharging as Gideon originally intended or has that feature been left out?

Armor does not use power, the gadget doesnt support it, and if we included it then it basicly nulls seperating shields and armor. So its out.



Another point to remember, these are "Stock" ships... Once you modify and upgrade them, they become terrors... ie, The EAD... The QST on the EAD is ment to do severe damage to the enemy fleet before moving into close quarters battle. it does massive damage to all ships in the area of affect.

Thus fired at a group of ICC ships moving in from a distance might suddenly damage many of them before the battle actually starts.

I though the QST was meant to do damage over 2000gu? Thats what Gideon told me. Doing that much damage over 200 gu just doesnt seem enough for me to want to us it (to just damage 1-2 ships).

Instead of adding a 4th repair bay to stations how about making the station have unlimited drones? To me that makes more sense since stations are "stations".

Even stations run out of raw resources to repair ya...

And the QST is only 200gu area per the document he did, it can travel out to 2000gu

About the current ships speed i find it hard to get in and out of an interdicter zone going a speed at 4.0GU i think u should make the interdicter zone smaller or just leev teh speeds the way ther were

Or maybe make the station hold like double the drones on each reload or something if unlimited is far fetched.

Shield+hull values go up.

Base torp ammo levels went down.

Anyone else see a problem? Currently, as I read it, lower levels have more torps, less power. As an example, fusion torps level 0 had 50 torps now instead of 60. Protracted battles will become diffilcult to maintain.

Also, unless cannons get a huge upgrade, the two fighters on the EAD aren't worth much.

Agreed. We either need higher damage ratios on weapons or more ammo. It's a pain to not have enough ammo to kill and enemy ship

**When looking at Ptorps, QST, Heavy Chemical Laser, and Standard Chemical Laser (likely more), you cannot see the level of the weapon, as it is cut off at the bottom. There is too much talky in the little description box. Perhaps using abbreviations with help.

ok my basic problem now is:

with all the new lvls on devices it can be hard to tell what is what when you try to install it from the cargo.

its the old problem with telling the builds apart just multiplied by the number of new devices

basic need new way to install devices directly in the slot /and /or

color codes or grafic that change with the lvl of the device

Still he has a point, with all that room a station reload should be at least 2-6x more efficient right?

cant we apply the same thing to Reloads as we did with Torp ammo based on ship hull?

They bigger the hull the faster the reload bay.

that way we also dont need 4 seperate bays *although it REALY helps with reloading fleets *

From what I've heard, all the command ships (ganglia, command carrier, command dread) are losing their reload bays. Too bad, really. Thats what made them worth flying.
