TTach military markets should carry more high-tech ships.
« on: April 22, 2017, 06:53:10 PM »

TTach military markets basically always look like this.

One high-tech capital, a couple high-tech frigates, and everything else is mid-tech with a smattering of low-tech. I've found exactly 1 Medusa on a TTach military market, and 5 Medusas on the black markets of the same planets. Given that you can get mid or low tech ships everywhere that's not a TTach market, and there are very few TTach markets, I think they should be almost entirely high-tech ships. Otherwise high-tech ships are just way too hard to find.

Yes, agreed. I hate how the HEGEMONY of all factions got even MORE markets while I don't think the TT got anymore at all... And they have ONE military market!

TTach still has 2 military markets, Port Tse just got moved out of Magec. But yes, TTach does need more markets.

Hegemony had a net gain of 2 markets (10 to 12). TT is down 2 (7 to 5). The League has 12.

Yes but I think that market is a size 4 along with their other size 5 military market, which impacts what spawns where.

Tri-Tach could use more markets, but the amount that Hegemony and League has is fine. It just goes to show how large they are in the scheme of things.

In regards to finding the rarer high-tech ships (phase, Omen, Apogee, etc.), Independents and the Persean League both have them in stock from time to time.

I totally agree. Its a real pain in the ass trying to build up a high tech fleet.

I thought it was difficult to find hi-tech ships before, but now it's borderline impossible. You have more luck going to the black market than using the TT military market. Is there any way to make markets only show specific ships?

This was a problem even in 0.71-0.72.  Seems like that problem has not been fixed yet.

I suppose one way to fix that is give those ships the Brawler treatment.  However, after comparing the Brawlers in the Codex, Brawler (TT) looks like junk, as the only difference is the blue Brawler gets inferior energy mounts for medium.  No other compensation like better flux stats to support energy weapons or better shield or speed to get so close to enemies with 600 range blasters or pulse lasers.

i had thought that all factions would have preset systems and a random number (within bounds) of randomly generated systems to give each generation seed uniqueness, and to change the faction dynamics every game ...... apparently thats not to be.

*sad puppy eyes*

TT needs more love alex

So far, the Sector is Angband.  Core Worlds is town, and the randomly generated stuff beyond is a roguelike dungeon.

You could alwats salvage fights between the hegemony and tritach at Ragnar. I got a hyperion and a medusa from that. Simply took a bit of cash to restore them

That's an interesting roguelike way of looking at it.

I think TT isn't supposed to be one of the two major factions, especially since they've just lost a major war

Then players need better/ more ways to get high tech ships. Yes Alex, we know you LOVE low tech ships, but seriously, either give TT some more LARGE markets or make other factions use more than a rare tempest or medusa
