While I LOVED making that ship, it has more work in it than a significant portion of the other ships combined. Also, I kinda dig the fact that it's unique (and super strong!): having a whole swarm of different models would be hard to follow.
Although I could maybe think about something... Bigger. But that certainly isn't any time soon, and I'll have to talk to FlashFrozen before.

Tartiflette, thanks a lot for updating this mod!

One of the things I always loved about Diable was how their bigger ships remind me of Zentraedi design. And now we have transforming ship as well, woot! Coincidence? Smiley

Thank you for the mod!
I love the looks of these ships, too bad they hate me(and I can't figure out how to get on good terms).

Interesting thing is that once you put on Safety Overrides on my Hayle, I got about 16 seconds of peak time and after that (suprisingly) my CR starts to go UP.
Needless to say very OP and fun.

Yeah, they get stronger over time but it's very slow and they take forever to get back their CR afterward (because even if CR rise in combat, the ships literally break down after the fight). Overall they are more dangerous to use: you will often have a first somewhat easier fight at high CR but then if you get ambushed while recovering you will be in a very bad position. It require to be a bit more careful when picking fights. In addition, the ships stats are slightly worse than vanilla ship, they require that CR boost to get on top.

Now that being said, we intend to change that mechanic. The ships will still get stronger over time but it will be done in an independent script rather than with CR. That will create some interesting situations in long fights where your weapons will be most effective when they are about to malfunction.

This is very cool. I see you are a Front Mission fan as well, judging by those 'fighters'. Though if it's in space, can it really be called a wanzer? Wink

I'm really really liking this set so far, this mod seems vanilla balanced, brings in some interesting weapons, I haven't hit anything yet that made me say "Damn, I see no reason to ever use anything else."

Style is awesome
ships are interesting
fighters are scary powerful, but I might be ok with that.

This is damn good work.

Hm, I noticed a possible bug: Storm-class barely fires it's micro missile launchers a lot of the time when controlled by the AI. Considering the huge amount of ammo it has, shouldn't it be liberally spamming them?

Played around with the mod a bit. Don't really have a lot of things to say atm, but there are a few weird things:
  • The Grave HMG is way too similar to the Assault Chaingun. Maybe it could have its DPS/Flux decreased a bit and have its range raised to 700-800.
  • The Thunderbolt SRMs onHitEffect could be a bit more noticeable, both in battle and in the description.

Recson S has 850 range but stats otherwise comparable to a light autocannon. For one more ordnance point you get 250 range. Weapon is best in class by a large margin.

Small issue that will be corrected in the hotfix (today?). Thanks.

Yeah, with Flashfrozen we had the same feeling about the Grave, and ended up with the same idea: more range and less damage to make it an intermediary between Assault Chaingun and Heavy Mauler.
As for the Thunderbolts, I'll see what I can do about it.

My mistake, it was supposed to be 8 or 9 OP. Probably 8 due to the inaccuracy and slow shots compared to the Light Needler despite the slightly longer range.

FlashFrozen is, I never played any Front Mission myself. I just saw mechs in space and I liked it! ^^
(though if it was my mod, I would probably have changed the names a bit, to avoid any IP conflicts and/or takedown. Devil Aerospace doesn't sound bad either...)
