Title: [0.9.1a] Tahlan Shipworks 0.3.8 - Kassadari weapon overhaul edition
Post by: Nia Tahl on January 16, 2019, 09:18:15 PM
(https://i.imgur.com/xmr0Cos.png)

This is a small ship pack mod I've been tinkering away at for a while now and I feel it's in a decent enough state now for a first release on the forums. It adds a couple new ships and weapon of different tech levels and styles, including some new themed content that's going to be expanded upon with more features in the future. The mod is still in its earlier stages and in some parts a bit experimental, but I hope you'll find something to enjoy in my little toybox here.

Nice to see this on the forum. I might write some slightly detailed about the ships later on, once I finish the IBB run. One bit I can say now is that Korikaze frigates seem to be pretty strong for their weight, and they get a boost when near the cruiser.

Not sure which version you are running, but I tuned down the Korikaze recently. Will have another look if it's still a bit strong. Will probably bump up their supply value to ~8

Great looking mod.

Blame David for that one. He clearly made it so the Gremlin's phase coil looks like a face.

Well, this mod is going in the next time I start a new game.

Nessie just reminds me of a T-shirt I've got - a picture of the Loch Ness Monster, with "Believe in yourself... even if no-one else does."  It's a good name for a phase cruiser.

Yes, you can find blueprints for Tahlan Shipworks content. (GH) ships spawn rarely in Independent fleets, Independents also sell GH weaponry.
As for rest of the ships, they appear in fleets of vanilla factions.

Ship packs will almost always work properly on a save created without them, it may take few in-game months for ships and weapons to appear in fleets.

Yes! Thank you! I was afraid that I'll need to restart the game... and lose my fleet of wannabe Star Destroyers xD

You may want to make the Forced Overdrive hullmod incompatible with the Ship & Weapon Pack's Shield Bypass hull mod; at the moment, it's possible to install both of these to a ship with Kassadari Engineering; as both of these are "remove shields to gain a benefit" type hull mods, I suspect they shouldn't be able to stack.

They aren't supposed to be compatible, actually. Will have to have another look at the code for that.

0.3.2
Additions:
- Added Haelquin Destroyer
- Added Skola Frigate
- Added new Navigation Feed ship system

Changes:
- Ingress now uses Navigation Feed ship system
- Bungelow now uses Burn Drive

Bugfixes:
- Added more missing descriptions

Not sure if this was intended or already fixed, but in your 0.3.0 initial release, a Great Houses blueprint package didn't unlock any ships- only the weapons and fighter.
If that was intentional, I'd suggest changing the item name to "Great Houses Weapon Blueprint Package", or something similar.

It is very much intended as the package isn't meant to contain refits. The various refits won't be available as blueprints at all in a future update when the refit market is added. They are meant to be a rarity and not mass-produced. I'll consider changing the package name.

I was glancing at the source code to see how you handled the Shield Bypass conflict when I stumbled onto an unrelated issue in tahlan_ModPlugin.java. It looks like there's a typo in the check to see whether MagicLib is enabled (specifically, it appears to be checking for "lw_lazylib" instead of "MagicLib").

Now, it's probably not a big deal (MagicLib is required by several mods, so most people have it enabled at this point), but I thought I'd better mention it just in case...

ah, no, he's right. It's a code error. Both the LazyLib and the MagicLib check are present, but the MagicLib check actually just checks for the LazyLib ID, too. Nicke must've forgotten to change that when copying the code for adding the MagicLib check. Gonna fix that in both mods.

This ship pack is pretty great. I love the aesthetics of the designs, the weapons are satisfying and fun, and the unique hullmods are pretty enjoyable too. Nia, you've done a great job on this so far, and Tahlan Shipworks is definitely going to be in my standard mod lineup from now on. Thank you. ^.^

As a player, I love what's already in the mod, but if I were asked what I'd like to see going forward, it would be a wider variety of missile weapons, to fill the medium, light, and auto-loading missile niches. The torpedoes are gorgeous and fun, but as a personal preference, I like having deep buckets of ammo that I can just sling all over the place in long engagements.

I do have a question though. I started with the Exo Pico, see the low-tech ships in independent markets all the time, managed to snag a Castigator (GH) from Prism Freeport, and lucked out and got blueprints for the Yukikaze and Korikaze, but in Cycle 214, I still have yet to see a Vale anywhere. Does it only spawn in high-tech markets, or for Luddic Church or something?

The Vale's class name is "Fast Cruiser", but it's a destroyer. It looks like the Fast Cruiser name is either copypasta or a typo.

Aside from that- I love the Castigator. It's become my new favorite ship. It may be nearly as expensive to field and maintain as an Onslaught (or more expensive for the GH version, I assume), but it's fun as heck. It looks great, it heavily armored and punchy, and plays like a mini-Onslaught that can turn faster and run ships down, guns blazing.

You get a gold star for that one. It's a great addition!

The Castella is really cool. Fills a novel but not implausible low-tech carrier niche, flexible, AI and flagship friendly...

Maybe a tad too powerful? With a reckless officer it can burn drive into a Luddic swarm, get surrounded, shoot everything in all directions, and live. The weapon arcs are really interesting, but not having a blind spot on a low-tech heavy feels weird. After a ton of time babysitting Dominators/Legions it's jarring to have a thing I can deploy and completely forget.

Post by: Wyvern on March 01, 2019, 09:16:42 PM
A couple of bits of commentary:

The Armiger Battery is, for some reason, set to a manufacturer of "Low Tech" rather than "The Great Houses"; if it's genuinely not supposed to be a GH weapon, then it should probably leave that column blank and get classified as a "common" weapon, as it's the only weapon across any mod I use that gets tagged as "Low Tech".  If, on the other hand, it should be a GH weapon, then it should probably go into the GH blueprint pack.

The one-shot Hekaton torpedo is still not showing up in the GH blueprint pack - looks like this is just a basic typo, as its tags include "tahlan_knights_bp", while all the others read "tahlan_knight_bp".

The Shiva Disruptor Beam doesn't have any blueprint options at all, and thus does not show up in the campaign; I'd suggest adding it to the project Kaze blueprint.

The Atrapos Lance is... in kindof a weird place, balance-wise.  On paper it looks like it should be pretty good - compared to things like the Phase Lance, the Atrapos is notably longer-ranged, but also notably less potent (350 armor penetration for the Atrapos Lance versus 500 for the Phase Lance).  In practice, though, it falls far short; the GH ships tend to have hybrid slots that could fit superior ballistic options, while energy-based ships are unable to take advantage of its long range - and, unlike the Phase Lance, the Atrapos is essentially completely ineffective against shields, due to a combination of vastly lower damage-per-burst with it being an HE-type weapon.  (Compare, for another example, the Sylphon Stricture, which - while still ineffective against shields - is a vastly superior weapon due to having 1000 armor penetration.)
I'm not sure what the right balance change for it is, but at the moment it's definitely not worth 12 OP.

It's kindof weird that the Disparax Proto (a medium weapon) is 20% stronger than the Disparax (a large weapon), but - given that the proto is a built-in weapon that only appears on a ship hull that I haven't seen in the campaign - this is really a non-issue.

Atrapos lance is a perfect gun for Eagle and Falcon, actually, since its long range means that it can supplement long-range ballistic weapons. It's also a perfectly accurate HE weapon, which helps at long distances and against fighters. It's up there competing with Machete Multipurpose Laser for those slots.
Cavalry Charge ship system doesn't have a description yet and I'm not sure if it boosts weapons or not.
And finally, you might want to include Exa Pico in one of the GH starts, as its pretty rare otherwise. castigator hegemon start when

Atrapos is losing 100 range and gaining a bit more damage. Long range HE energy can be quite dangerous a thing to make. The intent is for it to be a bit like a medium HIL but with more style.

Cavalry charge description will be fixed once I get around to updating again.

I find Kodai cruiser a very effective and fun machine. It is of course extremely vurnerable to flanking , similar to Dominator, but Dominator is sturdier , have more firepower and can take few hits, when this repurposed mining ship cannot for long time. Mining lance turn it basically into Getto Nevermore. 4 medium slot forward i use most of time for shield pounding weapons, sometimes mixed with anti armor ones. Mining lance is nice , but it dont have much in term of range. Big issue i found as very high lvl guy in campaign , is amount of speed and manouverability which actually dont help to get mining lance on target which are not a size of moon.  Kodai's are now a big part of fleet, basically murdered a Retribution class from it.

Eh? It is rather inconvenient to work around case-insensitivity, particularly if you care about the original and thus can't canonicalize everything on ingress. A case-insensitive file system makes less sense than even a whitespace-insensitive filesystem, since the latter can actually cause problems when recreating filenames without copy-paste or completion. The only reason OS X changed was because Microsoft is stuck with it for backward compatibility and everyone else needs to live with the consequences of their mistakes one way or the other.

Well, this is getting off-topic but I'll bite anyway.  ;D

Spoiler
From a regular desktop user perspective (Windows and macOS), case-sensitive file names may sound like a strange idea, but for the rest of the world that's how it works. From a purely technical point of view, case-sensitive is just plain easier and natural when storing/manipulating file names.

If you are curious, have a look at the "Case-sensitive" and "Case-preserving" columns in the table here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_systems#File_capabilities

And obviously:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Case_sensitivity#In_filesystems

Now if you ask me what sounds incredibly stupid:

Ah, yeah, DOS names.

Anyhow, case-sensitive is by far the better (hash != HASH != HaSh).  Ok, done nerding.  Is this mod still alive?  Sounds like a 1-minute fix, lol.

While there is time to collect feedback, i'll throw my 2-cent in - Numeon Blaster quite loud for medium mount, blasting my ears even more than enemy.
Haven't settled to have ships produced, but Bungalow's 4 docks crammed w/bombers been fun for it's low maintenance and reasonable availability.

A suggestion: I'd like to see the flux cost of the volkite class weapons reduced a bit; they're neat guns, but they're also extraordinarily pricey to use; I've been playing Nexerelin with the GH Castigator start, and the very first thing I do with that ship is strip off all the volkites.

I've been trying (via local editing) reducing flux cost on the small volkite to 16 per shot (.4 flux per damage instead of its current .5), and then further reducing the medium volkite's flux cost to 14 per shot (.35 flux per damage).  These numbers put the medium volkite at a point where I'm willing to consider using it instead of flak or dual flak and leaves the small volkite as still rather niche; on the one hand, it is much better PD than a vulcan; on the other hand it's also much more expensive; and on the gripping hand, there are other mods I use with premium small pd solutions that are either cheaper (Diable Avionics IBIS) or have strong secondary utility as anti-fighter weaponry (DME Flechette CIWS).

I noticed the Eagle (P) causing crashes, so I disabled everything and ended up using only Tahlan and the required Libs:
Tahlan Shipworks 0.3.4
LazyLib 2.4e
MagicLib 0.26

Was still having the same crashes even with only those enabled.

All of the GH ships are amazing. I looooove them! They are extremely rare though as well. I think they're fine how they are. The Dominator GH is a brute and more my style but I love the izanami also but it requires higher levels of micro than i'm generally willing or able to do.
Title: Re: [0.9.1a] Tahlan Shipworks 0.3.4b
Post by: solardawning on June 07, 2019, 02:29:46 PM
GH Castigator with Safety Overrides is the most ridiculous ship build I've tried yet. Two Assault Chainguns in the back mediums, one Heavy Machine Gun in the center medium hardpoint, two Overcharged Fusion Torch in the front two mediums.
Light Machine Gun in all the smalls.

Murders everything in seconds. The machine guns everywhere prevent/punish shield use, the Assault Chaingun X2 shreds through armor and hull extremely fast, and the Overcharged Fusion Torches finish off enemies with huge hull pools, like stations and battleships.

It's the combination of being able to point 5 Medium Ballistics at whatever is in front of it, while being fast and maneuverable (Good speed with SO +the perma 10% time dilation), and the time dilation gives an effective +10% DPS and flux advantage against all targets.

The ship system (Errant Drive) feels good too, allowing you to side-dash in any direction. I constantly use it to dodge Reapers or massed fire.

At the same time, I also find the Castigator (P) to be an excellent ship for AI-controlled officers: it has everything you want in an AI ship - excellent mobility system to let it backpedal and keep distance, a Large hardpoint to snipe with, two Medium ballistics for Hypervelocity Drivers (more sniping + EMP), lots of point defense on all sides, and 1500 armor. The combination of armor and mobility means you don't have to worry about it getting killed.
I like to kit them out with a Hellbore Cannon and two Hypervelocity Drivers. That lets them threaten any target from good range.

FYI, the Prototype (ultra-rare BP mothership) doesn't construct- you just get crew, supplies, and machinery built, and progress on it loops back to 0.

Edit: For anyone who wants to fix their local copy before Nia puts out an update, the culprit was lack of an entry for it in "tahlan/data/world/factions/default_ship_roles.json"
To fix, update the carrierLarge section from:
Code
	"carrierLarge":{
"tahlan_Castella_standard":7,
"tahlan_Castella_elite":3,
"tahlan_legion_gh_knight":10,

Kassasar is the name is the home planet of the Great Houses. Their formal title being "The Great Houses of Kassadar". It's not Japanese. GH naming pulls from different languages as the houses all have different cultural origins.

You'll want to transliterate Kassadar since it's really just a made-up name.

Okay, the Vendetta in the AI's hands is very reckless with its errant drive. It uses that into allied ships, causing damage and overall just sabotaging my own fleet. Otherwise, seems pretty good. Might I say it's pointless to have the hybrid medium turrets, given the Advanced Ballistics Interface hullmod. Why would I use energy there, when all ballistic weapons are straight up cheaper?

Been enjoying this mod tons. As has been stated the pirate Castigator is a sexy beast. I managed to get my hands on a GH Onslaught and promptly slapped Forced Overdrive on it and it is a terror on the battlefield. I just bought the GH Dominator a minute ago and tested in the sim vs a BR Knight that it roasted with ease with Styrix's and Hekaton's. The only one I've found difficult to use so far is the Legion. There just doesn't seem to be enough OP to be able to fit the large weapons and fighters both.

The knight isn't really a comparable ship, as firstly it's a destroyer like the enforcer, and it's more of an all rounder in it being a ship of the line/carrier combo pack, the closest BRDY ship is the Antaeus  - which depending on what fit you give it will either handily win or crush it like a bug (the Antaeus beats every normal capital in the sim except paragon )

Carriers OP amounts are currently balanced around 0 cost fighters - whether you agree with that or not, any of the mods which try to maintain relatively vanilla balanced stats, they're going to have horribly OP starved carriers if you try and put the nice bombers/interceptors on them and guns OR hullmods. None of them have enough for all three right now.

Post by: Dreamyr on July 24, 2019, 11:28:42 PM
I'm aware that the knight isn't the best comparison it's just the minimum that I want my ships to be able to deal with in a simulation environment. If it can't kill or withstand the firepower of a knight then there's a problem with my ship setup that I need to look at. It's less of a stress test and more of a shakedown cruise.

Forget nice I can't even manage the average 8 OP fighters and GH as far as I know don't have a 0 point interceptor to use or at least I haven't found the blueprint if they do.

Post by: Nia Tahl on July 25, 2019, 04:24:26 AM
The GH Legion isn't exactly balanced around having a full Kassadari loadout since Kassadari equipment is generally very OP-hungry and while GH ship somewhat offset it with their ballistics discount, this doesn't apply to fighters so going for a full set of Calivers should best be combined with less OP-hungry weapons from vanilla or other mods.

Draconis, are you sure those are from Tahlan? The only mod I've seen that includes R2D2 droids and factories is FDS, which sort of makes sense because it started out as a Star Wars mod. I might be wrong but I don't think this mod adds any new commodities (aside from blueprints if you count those).

Hi!  I think this mod looks absolutely amazing, but for some reason, every time I try to load the game, it crashes, giving me the error code, "Fatal: No enum costant com.fs.starfarer.api.combat.ShipHullSpecAPi.ShipTypeHints.WEAPONS_FRONT_TO_BACK"

I uninstalled all of my other mods besides the required mods, and tried to load it, but it still crashed.  Thanks for looking into this :)

Update time~

This one features a pair of new weapons, 3 new normal ships and a couple of unique ships obtainable from custom bounties if you have Vayra's Sector installed.

Won't break saves, but the custom bounties for Vayra's Sector seem to require a fresh save to spawn.

0.3.6
Additions:
- Titanomachy beam weapon
- Efreet barrage cannon
- Dun Scaith class pirate dreadnought
- Hresvelgr fleet carrier
- Glint fast cruiser
- Some content for Vayra's sector:
   - a number of special bounties featuring unique ships
   - some ships for colony factions

Changes:
- Overhauled all Castella sprites and adjusted all 3 variants
- Overhauled Ingress sprite   
   
Balancing:
- Buffed damage and flight time of Pendragon submunitions

Little update to add a new gun and nerf the standard Hresvelgr to more sensible level. 6 bays of reserve deployment was a fun meme, but admittedly rather silly.

Changelog:
Quote
0.3.6b
Additions:
- Gardas Hyperrail Cannon

Changes:
- Reduced Doominator dissipation to 500
- Increased Doominator flux cap to 12000

Balancing:
- Increased Styrix range to 1000
- Lowered duration of Dun Scaith's system from 4s to 3s
- Changed Hresvelgr ship system to Defensive Formation (reduces fighters' damage taken by 50% while active)
- Removed ATC from Hresvelgr

Another small balance update to move the Yari more towards the power level it's intended to have as a specialist ship.

Hello, my first post on the forum but thanks for the great mod!

It seems the Red Guard Hresvelgr cannot be properly constructed from player shipyards(nor does it seem to spawn in AI patrol fleets owned by the player). I am not sure if this is due to the lack of a variant or issues with how the skin is applied. I just want to bring it to your attention.

Had any reports of the Hresvelgr (GH) not appearing ingame?  I've acquired the blueprint, but when I craft it it consumes my 400k, but does not produce any ship.  I've checked all of my stations, made several (like 12) and nothing appears.  If i try to change my doctrine to max carriers, and ship size, and mash the randomize button a lot, they never appear.  I think it is not able to spawn ingame for whatever reason.  tried on both 3.6a and 3.6c.  I can get a list of my other mods if necessary.

It is very much intended as the package isn't meant to contain refits. The various refits won't be available as blueprints at all in a future update when the refit market is added. They are meant to be a rarity and not mass-produced. I'll consider changing the package name.

I updated all the mods after a long weekend, and something broke either in Tahlan, or in Tahlan+GraphicsLib.

The Izanami special ability combined with its Atrapos Lances started causing graphical glitches. After the first use of Chrono Rupture while Atrapos is firing, the ship usually turns black, every Atrapos shot turns into a black "shadow" that hides effects, and all shield effects disappear for all ships for the rest of the battle. Venting shows the Izanami again, but then it's back to black.

Tried disabling everything but the shaders in GraphicsLib, but it did not help. It does not matter what other ships are in a battle. 1 on 1 in simulation also brings out this bug.

Sounds distinctly like an issue with your GraphicsLib installation; this sounds like OpenGL messing itself up quite royally. The Izanami triggering it is most likely due to it having a big distortion being triggered, though I'm not sure.

I tried disabling the shaders (so effectively all of GraphicsLib), but that only solved the "ship goes black" issue. The shields still disappear at the same time. Now I am really confused.

It's not that. Had a similar thing happen before, but no clue what might be causing this issue.

The issue seems to be related to beams in some way, so I recommend just using projectile-based weapons for the time being. Recent patch changed the medium mounts to hybrids, anyhow (forgot to add that to the patch notes)

Sounds distinctly like an issue with your GraphicsLib installation; this sounds like OpenGL messing itself up quite royally. The Izanami triggering it is most likely due to it having a big distortion being triggered, though I'm not sure.
I have the same bug with the Izanami's system, but the details are a little different.

When shooting beams* that it has while it's system is active breaks things. The beam weapons stop functioning, they appear to come off cooldown immediately (even though they no longer fire at all), and remain locked in the position they were fired in until they eventually return to a neutral position. Graphical glitches happen for a bit, including a zone in which ships visually become black that looks like it follows the beam turrets/where the beams would be if they were fired by the turrets. Worst of all, the shields of ships nearby become invisible and don't give that ship any flux when fired upon (and don't appear to generate any shield upkeep flux either). Ships that are some distance away don't bug out. The bug was still present when I disabled every mod but this one and it's two required mods and tested the Izanami in sim. And yes, I disabled Graphics Lib for the last test - the weird visual glitches with ships going black went away, but every other bug remained (including invisible and invulnerable shields).

Unfortunately, I don't know when this bug started appearing - I updated a whole bunch of mods (including this one) in preparation for a new playthrough with the Izanami super ship start, and before that I had never used the Izanami.

*I tried both the super ship start Izunami's HE beams and vanilla phase lances. Behavior was identical with both.

The shield issue should be fixed in the most current version.

Edit: looking into this further and might have a fix for the whole thing. Might require some additional changes, though.

Here's a second fix:

main post has fixed version now

Previous one was having issues with weapons no longer doing damage again. This one should hopefully fix everything. Also slightly changes the behaviour of the Izanami's system.

OK, all good I think. Nothing buggy is showing up during sim testing after I pop the Izanami's ability.

After playing through Nexelerin with every faction mod that's currently available for 9.1a, with Varya's and all extensions, Ruthless Sector, etc. pp., I am coming by to say: Thank you for the Great Houses gear and ships. They have become absolute mainstays of my fleet, and never failed to perform admirably - and the Dominators with the AI's tendency to ram EVERYTHING, including Star Fortresses, have been a constant source of entertainment. I've seen a Dominator SLAM into wreckage and kill an enemy frigate with the makeshift projectile that created.

If the GH get more kit, heck, if they become their own faction, I will not be sad at all.

Thanks so much, Nia. You're a good noodle.

So I got my hands on a Izanami and i must say, this thing is overpowered as all hell. Sure, only 2 mediums and a bunch of small guns but the Chrono Rupture is just absolutely broken and overpowered. It's basically a full Flux Vent if you have Resistant Flux Conduits. This is just my opinion but you should put some Flux Cost on the Chrono Rupture- maybe 2k or 3k, as it is i just activate it when my flux is full, Vent, then go right back to shooting. I also don't think a cruiser should have 110 base speed.
Otherwise, I absolutely love the new ships and I'm absolutely terrified when I bump into a pirate revenge fleet with 3 Castigators.

Izanami isn't really meant to be balanced and the system already has a flux cost. It's just meant to be a fun ship.

I like the Izanami. It is basically an advanced start, but with one ship instead of a fleet. If you use Nexerelin, there is similar craziness from some other factions (pick the Super Ship option for the Blade Breakers, for example).

If only the AI would stop ramming it into friendlies...

Little bug on Linux : your mod tries to load "tahlan_nibelung_cover_l_Normal.png" and "tahlan_nibelung_cover_r_Normal.png", but files are "tahlan_nibelung_cover_L_Normal.png" and "tahlan_nibelung_cover_R_Normal.png" (and so, files cannot be load as unknown that lead to crash at startup)

I had to rename files (R to r and L to l) to be fine.

Post by: Nia Tahl on October 01, 2019, 07:38:29 AM
Speaking of which, here it is. This one reworks the Kassadari weapons quite a bit to be a bit more consistent and nicer overall.

Also adds some new weapons, a fighter and a new ship, the Phoca:

(https://imgur.com/tINSZ4T.png)


Full changelog (I think):
Spoiler
0.3.8
Additions:
- Added Scoralis heavy bomber
- Added Ronka Blastcannon
- Added Anumis superheavy cannon
- Added Ramun siege microcannon
- Added Phoca-class light cruiser

Changes:
- Adjusted Izanami's Chrono Rupture stats to compensate for the recent bugfix increasing its effectiveness
- Nibelung now has a pair of unique hullmods

Balancing:
- Kassadari engineering now doubles CR decay after ppt (Delicate Machinery)
- Reworked various weapons:
 - Armiger now has 1100 range and slower projectiles to better match its kinetic counterpart, the Efreet
 - Styrix changed to 900 range with high dps and decent efficiency. Added some recoil. Reduced OP cost from 30 to 28
 - Magaera efficiency increased slightly at the cost of some EMP damage. Overall damage per shot increased, rate of fire reduced. Less spammy now.
 - Gallant rate of fire reduced, damage per shot increased, efficiency buffed slightly. Similar change to Magaera
 - Added recoil to both Magaera and Gallant
 - Gardas per-shot damage increased to 900 to be more fitting for its high OP cost
 - Teltrite efficiency nerfed to 1.0 and refire rate reduced to 1/s
 - Numeon changed heavily into an HE weapon with the Hekaton's gimmick, parallel to the new Anumis
 - Porphyrion changed to energy damage. Similar to old Numeon in role, but burst-fire
 - Atrapos renamed to Gardion, changed to ballistic. Now a medium equivalent of the Gardas
 - Increased burst delay and chargedown on medium Hekaton launcher
 - Reduced projectile speeds on many weapons
 - Reduced Prophyrion dps
- Reduced Dun Scaith armor from 1600 to 1500
- Reduced Doominator armor from 1500 to 1400
- Reduced Nibelung flux capacity from 24000 to 22000
- Reduced Nibelung armor from 1600 to 1500
- Increased Nibelung dissipation from 700 to 800
- Reduced Nibelung shield efficiency from 1.0 to 1.2
- Increased Nibelung top speed from 40 to 45

Really like the new weapons and the new ship, I think a few of the weapon roles weren't updated to reflect the changes though.

For example, the porphyrion is stated as anti armor despite being energy, and the neumon is listed as general despite being primarily HE

Man, the changes to the Nibelung and variants are fantastic. I liked them before this, but the broadside smalls were awkward in practice. The added range makes them pleasant to use. And the Phoca runs pretty well under AI control. I was impressed by one earlier- dropping heavier guns up front seems to keep the AI happy.

For a flagship, I'm running a Nibelung Albion with Anumis Superheavy Cannons, some Reparations Pellet Guns and Kadur Gyrojet Drivers. I love it to pieces. The Cannons are satisfying all-rounders.

Tahlan and Sylphon are both rad and you should feel rad.
