[0.8a]Wriath's Ship Addition Mod V.7
« on: May 01, 2017, 09:30:51 PM »

Hey there, I remade a ship from an old mod. the Weapons Pack by Apophis. The sprite was created by Medikohl. It's a midline destroyer with good shields and armour, but somewhat light armament.

A note on the Assassin, the weapons are all inbuilt to further simulate the behaviors of fighter type ships.

EDIT: Any advice on balancing, optimizing campaign integration, etc. is extremely welcome. This is the first time I've published anything on here and I don't really know what I'm doing!

Changelog:
Forgot to remove rules.csv for testing. re-uploaded.
V. .5 Adjusted some stats, less armour, changed description a bit, decreased shield radius a bit.
V. .6 Added a light carrier, stats are probably going to be changed, I just finally got a working draft going that isn't crashing.
V. .61 Fixed engines, shields, stat issues with dachsund. Added it to markets and patrols. Set barrage to foreward shield to better fit lasher style, changed weapon system to ammo accel.
Known Bugs, fixed, let me know if you find any.
V. .7 Added Assassin heavy fighter, playable 2 ship fighter squad, further changes to stats. Changed name of Barrage destroyer to Thrasher, changed mod name (would love a name for the mod that isn't... this)
V. .7a changed Assassin graphic.

To do:
Normalize dachsund skin with hound/cerberus. Make D versions of both ships, possibly add more ships, waiting on a sprite for a third one. Possibly further tone down stats except speed on barrage to put it into more of a light destroyer role, not sure about this. open to thoughts.
Sharpen up the Assassin sprite, figure out a way to make it so the secondary ship won't dock for repair and re-arm.

Was planning on adding another couple of old kitbashes that i think fit vanilla style, i'm not much at graphics editing so it's going to be rehashes of old designs (with permission from authors of course) that have fallen out of use.

is the ship & weapons pack not getting updated? Or am I thinking of a different pack that this came from?

It's from a much older one that was discontinued.

Added a new ship, custom sprite by me. I changed the name of the Barrage because I realized I hadn't spoken to Apophis about using the name of the ship. Sorry about that everyone.
Anyway, the Assassin is a ship that's halfway between a frigate and a fighter, it's a two ship squadron with the lead vessel having a built in fighter wing that's the same ship.

Hey, you know how to add more variants right? Just asking because the Barrage (before the Wriath's Ship Addition Mod Pack) had only the Point Defense variant, so just wondering if there's more than just that one now.

I know how but I'm not really sure what else to put on it, if anyone wants to screenshot the refit screen and show me what they're doing with it I might add some more variants.

Sure thing, I just have to wait until my computer can cope with Starsector without bluescreening so I can look at the refits and think of variants (I have 5 - 7 in mind for some ships)

There's a bug with the Assasin's "fighter wing". If you try to remote view the unit, the game crashes.

Thanks, also note that even clicking on the "fighter wing" itself causes the game to crash.

the starsector.log has this

Another notable bug I found is that, the assassin's fighter wing lpc also appears in markets and salvage. I can guess that is not intended, yes?

So, I made some variants for the Thresher. More incoming soon. (Ignore the (D), I made these variants before I repaired it)

I need to put another post on the other mod as well, I just got promoted at work so work has slowed down on both as I've been a bit overwhelmed... I'm not sure when I'm going to have some time to change much.
