Re: So I wanted to try the ion9 again in 1.7

I'm not sure why you're having issues with missiles and the Ion9. It should be incapable of hitting your own shots unless there's a bug somewhere. The real threat the Ion9 poses is its ability to knock out guns on capital ships: every time you hit the spot a weapon is on a ship, you can knock it out...

Re: [DEV] Elemental Shift

I truly hope that this is one of those adventure ideas that do not get starved of creativity/motivation/time or just somehow develop a severe case of [Future Release]. Many ideas get written down now but often they remain [Future Release] for some time because there's only one person working on the...

[DEV] Elemental Shift

A bit over a month since I decided to end development of Shrike's Mines & Missiles (after 7 years, it was about time), I'm now able to start talking about the long-term project that's replacing it: Elemental Shift Elemental Shift will come in two main parts: The first is the resources, items, device...

Re: [Discussion] Point defense, missile HP and Aegis.

Some weapons could easily be used as a PD weapon if they were omnidirectional, e.g the Morning star cannon. Might be nice as a Tinker recipe. (together with a longreach for example) The kinetic cloud would make it very effective against missiles and aiming in the general direction of the missile wo...

Re: Discussion/Pre-proposal: Point defense, missile HP and Aegis.

The longreach was intended as an "ICX but better" weapon to get around the lack of power of the ICX in the endgame. It totally missed the major problem of targeting. It was later introduced into the 310A Aegis to, again, try to solve the targeting issues with brute force. The comparison with the fle...

[Discussion] Point defense, missile HP and Aegis.

First things first: This is not a proposal. It is a discussion thread. That being said, please keep on topic. I've been doing some brainstorming on the problem of point defense, and I think I've worked out most of the issues that need to be discussed and worked out. I don't have solutions to everyt...

Re: Coming back to Transcendence.. a few questions!

And to clarify WMD a little more: the WMD rating tracks the proportion of damage dealt to hardened targets. Specifically, multiply the number given by 10, and you get the exact percentage of base damage (IE: a weapon with 10 base average damage with a WMD5 indication will do 50% damage to hardened ...

Re: Buff the Centauri Warlords

Adding centauri nanos to the front of every ship is a bad idea. There aren't enough blast weapons to get around it, and that stuff is seriously powerful. However I've agreed for a long time that the centauri need a boost, and fortunately....I can actually provide some concrete suggestions. I've pers...

*As long as it doesn't wipe out my precious, precious headcanon.
I kind of want to see a faction that flies around in ships shaped like human heads, armed with kinetic/blast/thermo weapons.
Head-canon, not head-cannon.

Re: One-Week Adventure

I'm biased, because I'm doing some Freeworlds stuff myself. But I'd like to see more fleshing out of the Militia, and I think you can get more done quickly without needing new assets.... so I voted for Komoro. Obviously, however, I will enjoy whatever you end up doing.* *As long as it doesn't wipe o...

Re: Let's argue about cargo holds!

In order, I think that. Yes it's a good idea to look at their balance and mechanics. It's an old system, and periodic review is always good. No they shouldn't be standard. They can sap performance massively if you use them incorrectly, and having reduced cargo space is a good way to introduce mass l...

Re: Mining Pack released! (collab with TransGeek)

All I did to the ICX miners is change some numbers to rebalance it. Normal ICX does not have a friendly fire check, and modder needs to add that feature in. DrakeTech does not overwrite anything, and there should be no conflict. Is there any way the ICX can be made to only fire at actual asteroids ...
