As the title suggests, this is a thread for suggesting tweaks to the ship component configurations in beta.

Keep your ideas reasonable (remember, the keyword here is tweaks not "complete overhauls".) And think before you post. Nothing silly like 'zomg put 20 torps on the combat dessie!'

And to commence the suggestions...

Assault Destroyer - UGTO
Give all 3 of the AD's torps a Forward facing.
Currently, there is one torp with a Front mount, one with a Left, and one with a Right.
Suggest changing the torp mounts to Front, Front/Right, and Front/Left.

Just what Faustus needs, more people trying to tell him how to fix the game. Isn't this the way we got into this mess?

Interesting thread. I've not got much in the tweak request section at the moment, so I'll be stopping by later.

@Michael - Please note who made this thread, and pay attention.
There are things in this world that man was not meant to know . . . and we have most of them convieniently arranged alphabetically by title.

Only suggestion I have atm is:

Make EAD Aft mount torps like the Full mounts of old, and give them a 360 degree Arc.

Give EAD at least one more Aux Generator....if not two.

Set minimum Range on all ship fired Missiles to 500 gu.

A single Aft mount Mine slot would be cool to have on the Heavy supply ships.

UGTO Missile crusier I think should have more fore/left/right arc than Left and Right only arcs.

Remove all EAD aft weapons and fighter bays; replace with fore or left/right pcannons/torpedos.

Remove single HCL from the Battle Dreadnought. Replace the missiles with torpedos.

All I gotta say is, make all ships have Rear Defenses omg, The Assault Dessie should have more Rear Defenses, the kluth should have More Rear PROTECTION!, and the ICC should have Rear Protection while bombing. just my 2 cents

Add two Aux gens to the EAD.
Move Aft torps to Fore or Full (preferably Full).
Add an extra rear armour plate and maybe up the level of armour on the EAD (something doesn't sit right with the EAD's armour config. It just doesn't seem right).

not sure how its gonna be after Core weapons are removed, as in wat weapon replacement if any, but if so all i suggest is one full arc elf like old time

Scarab or other dev intended kluth torp cruiser
no aux gen
one ecm slot
3 FL torp
3 FR torp
1 360 torp
4 AM mines
1 FR ruptor
1 FL ruptor
1 360 elf
Same armor layout as uggy TC.
Someone gets behind u and ur diced.
Did some thinkin an i believe it does not need more cannons or beams do to the cloak factor and mines, it may be too much as is.

Go Griz!!!

Woah woah woah.

TC is the most heavily armoured cruiser in the game. I don't think the Scarab needs the same armour layout. Especially as it can cloak to avoid fire, where as the TC CANNOT.
