While I'm using a wing of Drake's ("super talon's from SWP) and Firebird's on it. Coupled with Mousetraps good mobility this makes an interesting little carrier that can keep up with my destroyers while smacking frigates and some destroyers with ease.

I'm enjoy the swift burst torps on the Firebirds since in bigger group they have a tendency to spreading wide enough to slingshot a few rockets beyond the target's shield. It's not OP tho, since any target with shields bigger than 150 arc should be laughing, especially if they're bigger than a venture. Besides, this doesn't count the likely involvement of PD systems on it. I do though like the Firebird's a lot, enough to host them on my bigger carriers as well. It's probably because I've got quite fed up with AI using pirahnas or kopeshe's to strike a target... With me in between...

Ahem. Just gonna say it.

@Hussar you don't need apostrophes in plurals.  Tongue But you do in possessives.

Should be Drakes, Talons, Firebirds, and Mousetrap's, respectively.

You know you could do the same post in a much nicer way without using the bold function? So GRAMMARNAZI of u. Tongue

I mean seriously, I appreciate. I just would appreciate it more without this. Just a thought.

Sorry, I was trying to highlight the key parts.  Lips sealed I am very much a Gramma Nazi though, I've got no delusions about that.

Grammarnazis are known to have little to no humor Wink

Anyhow, have something changed between the regular Acanthina (missle) and the hegemony repaint? I've strangely found out that cautious officer refuses to fire his missiles... I'm not sure is it a bug yet, but it happened in a few battles of my new hegemony playthrough.

Hum. The only differences between the two (other than the sprite and Codex prefix) are that the Hegemony version's turrets are Hybrid instead of Energy, and its system is Burst Flares instead of Active Flares. Unless there's some AI loadout trickery based on what weapons you have equipped in the turrets (I know that the AI uses non-missile, non-PD weapons for rangefinding), there's nothing obvious that should be affecting it adversely.

Can you share a quick screenshot of your loadout as it appears in the refit screen?

Sure, but I'll have to do some console magic for you. Since I grew so frustrated that I've gave up on this ship when it died without even firing a weapon - and moved my officer to something... less confusing. I've ran him with the cautious type btw. But fortunately I've returned to the Eventide before saving, so here it is:


I might try out it again if you want. I'll admit to be a whimp and changed Reliant's from SWP to be... more interesting. Range 500, damage 20 kinetic. Yes, it's op. But we could check does it change anything. Could try pdlasers too, with obviously dropped firing computer.

Point is still tho, that the regular missile version works just fine with exact same loadout and cautious officer? It tries to stay at range and uses microblasters only for pd self defence while firing away their rockets.

So you've got basically identical loadouts, but the regular version works perfectly fine and the Hegemony version doesn't? Huh That's extremely weird. I have no idea what could cause that I'm afraid.

Yup. Only officers were different, but then both were of cautious type so yeah. I found it so weird that I've brought it up. I can try test it some more and see how it fares - maybe AI just glitched. After all, Mousetrap with Timid officer suddenly jumps to the biggest enemy ship to rub shield with it if you've ask them to "escort" another carrier (so to keep the carriergroup together but moving)... So it might be just AI being trollish.

Edit: Oh wow, it feels like I've scored in a lottery because I've had managed to found a derelict Starlifter orbiting an habitable world next to an orbital habitat. Imagine my surprise when I was offered to bring it back to life.

Damn, now I need an Ox to keep my burn level on 10 xD

Minor Update - Version 1.6.2

I hear a rumour that Nexerelin's gonna be updating soon... So, in premonition, we've got a few custom starts using Disassemble Reassemble ships. You won't get to experience those until Nex updates of course (unless you're using the development versions shared in Discord), but patience is a virtue!

Besides that, minor consistency fixes for Luddic Path ships and the Dram (A). Enjoy!

As always, check the OP for more details.

Minor Update - Version 1.6.4

A hefty adjustment to the Kamikaze Talon Drone, which now uses a missile rather than a mine and has a different system AI to utilize it. Also the Overclocked Dagger has had a weapons change to make it less of a Perdition clone, and the Triton has received a reduced burn speed to match the standard for vanilla civilian ships.

As always, check the OP for more details.
