Re: [0.9.1a] Blue (0.5.2) Mod - Some odd comeback banter
« Reply #30 on: August 11, 2019, 09:35:10 AM »

Why overslaugth ship have armor like dominator cruiser? Anthracite have 1550, Dominator have 1500, Onslaught have 1750. I think you nerfed it a lot.
And a couple of things, overslaugth(XLU) has very weak built-in guns, medium fragmented damage with a terrible flux rate, and stratus guns who can't hit anyone due to the very slow flight of the projectile.
I apologize for the criticism; you are one of the few doing normal ships here. Just don’t follow the corvette lovers, if they tell you that it’s difficult for them to kill your overslaugh on the wolf.

Small bug, seeing that I can't build the battleyard. Doesn't recognize the spaceport. Tried with both normal spaceport as well as megaspaceport.

I see it, the logic on how it recognizes Spaceport isn't registered correctly.

This hotfix is out then.

I've noticed how underwhelming the Thunderfist has been despite its dakka-dakka power, I'll see look into it and throw on the next patch. I appreciate the feedback.

Hey,
your update link that VersionChecker uses redirects to http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=9035.0, your "Blue" faction mod, not this mod.

My bad.

It's been reposted now. I routinely forgotten the version file is using the old page it used to merge with.



Edit:
Just a heads up, the pricing of all the ships have been adjusted again to match up with the nerfs and requests. Few ships also got tweaked for experimentation.

It's official. I've made terrible lapses in judgement and got my fleet destroyed 1000 times now. In honor of this achievement I am now naming my band "Wayfarer and the Kite".

I like what you did with the good old Onslaught sprite. Not a fan of its blue version. IMO the built-in guns don't really do it any favours looks wise (speaking of that one which you can pilot in one of the missions). Its older variant, the oversized, classic Onslaught, is the coolest looking ship I've seen so far. I am having a lot of fun flying it. Thank you.

Glorious ship design...
Any plan on fixing the exceeding industries amount on XLU planets?

Thanks a lot. I appreciate the love of the oversized Onslaught is getting and I do intend to keep it around because of the need to compensate every once in a while. ;)

The XLU variant is getting a refurbishment though since the design isn't in the feel of the same way with the XLU-modified Onslaught.

The fix is right around the corner. Along with some adjustments.

Thanks for the update man, but there is something I don't know its a feature or a bug: the unusual relationship between XLU and rogue AI fractions (blade-breaker from Dassault-Mikoyan Engineering mod and the [Redacted]), it seem that all rogue AI fractions are not hostile to XLU at all.

I'm not sure this is intentional, but the +25% ship quality for lanestate battleyards seems to be applied even if you don't have them built. It's definitely kind of weird.

Really enjoy this mod!  The ships can punch above their weight but with their flux stats being so terrible I feel their deployment points are justified.  As even their super caps don't stack up flux wise to other heavy ships.  The only one that does is the prototype battlecruiser but that's an exception to the majority of the fleet as a whole that's quite fun.  Love the missile spam that can be done :D

The Hyvel Twin Driver claims to be an area point defense when it's a Gauss Cannon sidegrade. It also costs far too much flux for what it does.
