I nearly forgot about the eagle rumbler since I rarely saw it in the sector, probably faced it several times during combat with deserters but I couldn't notice, since it looks identical to the standard eagle. The tremor seems, interesting. I might try to find one as a temporary flagship in a new game.

Gonna miss the Centaurion Hailfyre tho, I always have one or two in my early games built as a sniper with a hypervelocity cannon to harass shielded ships and other larger pirate ships. I got mixed feelings with the Hailfyre. While the missile and maneuver jets makes it a flexible assault frigate, the lack of accelerated ammo kinda kills it for me. But hey, who knows? I might like it.

Anyway, can't wait to see the new ships.  just hope that the Sunder WRD stays in the future. That bastard saved my ass many times when I least expected it


P.S. Is it just me? Or the Onslaught GRD's hangar is misplaced? I always see the fighters go inside the center of the ship (somewhere behind the bridge or on top of the bridge) to "dock" rather than the two flight decks in the front. If this is intended, forget I mentioned it.

On the first day of Christmas
Raccoon gave to me
A new version of AE.


... yeah I know it's not that good. Anyway, 1.4.6 is out today as a present from me. It's mostly a balance update, although the Mantidae Fighter variant has gotten some love and Keepers have a new tool to aid in your destruction.

Code:
Version 1.4.6 (Dec 16-25) - Scales of War
- Added Peon-class bomber drone (and Mining Charge Launcher weapon)
- Reduced Mini-Flak damage (125 > 100)
- Reaver: new weapons loadout (Pulse Laser + Ion Laser), escorts are now Wasps, is considered an assault fighter (ignores enemy fighters to attack ships)
- Reduced chance of Keepers using non-Derelict fighters
- Merlon is less able to spam small missiles (some composites > ballistics, removed side missile mount), reduced OP (110 > 105)
- Reduced Artillery Swarmer ship variant damage (45 > 40) and flux/shot (50 > 45)
- IR Skittergun reworked - now a full-auto blaster, new sounds and visuals too
- Graviton Lance chargeup time removed and made into chargedown (same fire rate, more responsive)
- Asgard has slightly better shield coverage
- Slight adjustment to Tremor's weapon arcs
- Followers in Nexerelin now use AE ships
- Mid-Tourney balance stuff technically is in this update now

1.4.7 Infernal update is out. New fighter wing, and Autoblasters can now be used on ships. Couple of balancing chances too.

- Added Daemon-class warp fighter and Projection system
- Autoblaster is now available as a modular weapon, firing sound has some pitch variance to avoid hemorrhaging of ears
- Assault Pulser - reduced damage/shot (100 > 85), shots per burst (24 > 16), increased flux/shot (60 > 90), reduced OP cost (16 > 14)
- Graviton Lance no longer has a period of not being able to turn the beam, increased damage/second (250 > 300)
- Reduced Brattice hull points (350 > 300)
- Wolfpups are no longer available as a standalone wing
- Pike now fires its Willows out to the sides for increased dramatic effect and both they and Swallows fire their Willows sooner
- Increased Lustrare's shield size

Hi everyone! It's me again.

In 1.4.6 I mentioned that I wanted to cut down on some of AE's less original content. Originally the intent was to gradually phase out old things and replace them with something new, but I've bit the bullet and went much further. If you checked the ship list recently, you'd see that the Tempest Saboteur, Hammerhead Seeker, Sunder Warden, Gryphon Hunter and Onslaught Guardian were all removed, and as of 1.4.8 they are completely gone. If you miss them, you can probably find a suitable replacement in another mod (e.g try Disassemble Reassemble's Insurgent phase frigate, it's really cool!) The Wolf Sentinel stays for now (because I like it and I bet a couple other people like it too) and so does the Lasher Duelist (which stays until I make a functional replacement)

For new content, you've got the Kindling-class destroyer, which can use its fighter bay, respectable weapons layout and upgraded Swarm Flare launcher to help control the battlefield, the Blacksmith MRM, a new missile that fires molten lances of metal into enemy ships (available in small and medium varieties), and the Phoenix multirole bomber, which can both launch Blacksmiths and pelt shields with its machineguns. There's a new mission to replace Assault, too. Check it out!

This update is INCREDIBLY save-incompatible. Use Save Transfer, don't try to bring any ships that no longer exist.

- Added Blacksmith MRM and Blacksmith MRM Pod
- Added Phoenix-class bomber (and Blacksmith MRM Rack)
- Added Kindling-class destroyer
- New Pulse Rocket sprite
- Mini-Flak Cannon now has visual recoil
- With Lightshow, the Mimic's decoys now use Lightshow's PD laser color
- Removed elite variants Tempest Saboteur, Hammerhead Seeker, Sunder Warden, Gryphon Hunter and Onslaught Guardian. Wolf and Lasher stay for now
- Removed Thunder Multirole variant
- Player can no longer find and unlock the Micro Flux Shunt and Repair Drones hullmods. They will be limited to built-ins
- Replaced "Assault" with "Flames of Rebellion"
- Fixed Pawn losing CR extremely quickly after running out of PPT

Hehe, I'll first need to find a screenshot to top it.

Also, if you're reading this, I've just updated the download with a slight tweak to the Blacksmith's usability.

Kinda sad the blue Onslaught's gone, but the new destroyer's pretty nice looking. :3

Just bumping in to say that Lustrare is really cool looking and captures remnant style perfectly.

attempting data reconstruction. error: insufficient data at present moment. will resume at later date.

... ahem. New update out! Adds a new low-tech broadside-focused battleship, the Vanquish class. Some adjustments related to ship systems (a couple new ones!) and to aborting process.

Patch notes!

- Added Vanquish-class battleship and upgraded Borer wing

- Merlon has auxiliary engines that activate on system use
- Added Lance Cannon, only available in weapon caches and such
- Pikes are now available in the open market
- Parapets fire far fewer flares (say that five times fast)
- Pheonix no longer has Maneuvering Jets
- Reaver - weapons are now in different groups, shield statistic in refit is now accurate
- Adjustments to [ERROR ERROR DATA STREAM CORRUPTED] dialogue and descriptions
- Fixed Flourish's engines being off-center
