I love the fighters in this mod. thank you! it lets me have my dream of watching a fleet get swarmed by 20+ fighter wings while laughing extra evil-like.

Though i think the DA needs a larger freighter. many of their larger fleets use precious fleet points and space in combat freighters instead of more fighters and combat ships. their fleets end up being weaker overall and get shredded by most things they come in contact in. I am playing in nexerelin, if that is relevant.
Good point, we may look into that. Although for now we have a couple other things in the works ^^

Not sure if it is a bug I have never seen the AI firing a single Thunderbolt SRM so far.

I've added a tag in to thunderbolts that should make them fire more often, don't say you weren't warned... Lol.

When I take the fighter wings into battle I end up losing about 40% cr on them, despite the tool tip saying it only costs them 10% per deployment. Is this down to the fact that I don't have a carrier for them? If that is the reason, it charply limits thier usability, and thus the faction as a whole, when you are just starting out.

The Codex will list it as CR PER fighter deployed, so if it says 10% and your wing has 4 in it, it'll take 40% off.

don't worry, i will try to not be hostile with them. anyway even without thunderbolt, their missles are kicking my ass badly :P after a few tries i finallly gave up killing a 500k DA bounties. they fired so many missiles, i get 15fps with the shader lib disabled.... and 5 without. maybe you could work with the performance with the missile spam next time, they have loely trails but not performance friendly  ;D

Is the intension to make them very expensive to deploy and to then force either a long downtime or running back to a friendly planet base?

My impression with this mod:
1. Ships seem to be really under-powered, bad shield average flux stat, average mobility.The only good thing is that they could carry a tons of missiles :P
2. Their weapons are not quite impressive, except for the missiles.
3. Fighter wings seem to be very strong sadly I am not a fan of fighters.
4. Overall it's well balanced compare to NC

Gotta keep em with a good screen of the fighters. they really shine when the fighters tank the damage. many of the larger ships have flight decks too, so it combos even better.

I think there's something wrong with the Banish torpedo?  At least when I try it, it goes out a bit, takes aim, and then just... vanishes.

Wyvern is 100% correct about the math.

Perhaps it's a misspelling of Vanish Torpedo? :D

It's a bug with SS+

if you really want the fix now, you can just delete line 25 in weapons/proj/diableavionics_banishwarhead

   "fadeTime":4.5, # fadeout duration

Weird... but thanks for the fix!  I'll go ahead and apply that, since it's kinda cheatery to engage DA deserter fleets and watch their torpedos just... fail.

It works alongside SS+ no problem, but it's not an integrated faction if that's what you mean.
