Pirate activity is kinda nonsense. I got a system that is able to support one another with some very good patrol fleet (95% quality and over 200% size on all 4 colony) and pirates are still able to "interrupt" my trade. I don't even need cross-system trade and I've never seen any pirate fleet in my system, how can they possible interrupt it?
Also it's quite frustrating having instant -3 stab -50% ass just upon a pirate base/activity spawn. I thought it's supposed to be gradually increasing like luddys, causing huge trouble if left alone for too long, not just randomly kick your economy's ass.

Hi. I think i found a little exploit. Not sure if it was reported, but i thought to report it anyway, just in case.

Basically, if a market has a bunch of damaged ships for sale, i can reload the save and all the ships get magically fixed.

Here i made a couple of screenshots to explain it better.
What i find initially:


What happens if i save and load my game:

I had a pirate base targeting my colony and was able to locate it by going to a bar in my colony and talking to a person.  That was pretty cool, but it wasn't necessarily obvious.

If the message in the intel screen gave some suggestions for finding hidden bases I reckon people would find it all less frustrating.

Some things about balance:
1. WTF with misslies? 2-3 Reapers now blow up Onslaught with 2350 armor and all skills on ship survivality! In 0.8 for this battleship need much more torpedos. I have a full set of combat skills and when i take first Reaper on my Paragon i lost 15%HP and all armor and when i take second Reaper this rocket leave near 10% of total ship HP eating >8000HP.

So what has happened?

2. Nerf "Radiant". Ship with such stats of shields, weapons and armor/hull to op with jump system. I very despise creation of the battleship capable to overtake on speed battlecruisers flying a back forward. I see lots of this overpowered monsters on mods and really hate this.

It good for Guardian because it really boss ship. But line, serial ship too overpowered.

Battleship will be show or can fast moving only forward like Onslaught. Maybe better give Radiant new "Plasma Burn" system? Because no one Remnant have it and Radiant become a analog of high tech Onslaught.

Another bug, small fleets protecting some stations like mining stations or orbital habidat.

Also, Guardian on Cryosleeper well be as solo battleship? Or he will have escort ships?

Because after this single remnant defender i think Guardian it should not be lonely and it is simple bug.

Is there a way to equip orbital stations? I paid an arm and a leg for the star fortress, would be nice adjust it and see its stats out of combat
I would very much like to see what the battlestations can do (either codex entry and/or simulator).  If I spend big bucks on the station, I like to equip it and know what its stats are.  When I tried adding orbital station, I get offered which tech type, and I have no idea which style I want, so I decide not to build it.

I have some idea what the various bases do after smashing some pirate bases, but the only thing that stands out so far is high-tech has mediocre energy weapons and annoying fortress shields.  Low-tech was more intimidating (if it focuses on guns instead of fighters).  Not sure what midline does, but it seems a bit like a variant low-tech.

If high-tech is (or can become equivalent of) like the Remnant battlestation, then yes, I want that death machine!  If it is nothing but tactical and graviton beam spam with maybe a few mining/heavy blasters, and its only gimmick is fortress shield, then... YUCK!  If I do not like high-tech, then it is a choice between low-tech and midline, and I have no idea what the differences are.

minor bug: looking at the stats of my d-modded Heron, it seems either Malfunctioning Comms or Defective Manufactory doesn't reduce deployment supply cost as it should, though both do mention the reduction in their tooltip.

Yep. You can double-check trying to re-download it from the page. RC9 is the newest.

High tech station has mines which are really useful. Also the Fortress Shield ensures it survives while you soften the invading fleet, it's been working really well for me.

They use best tech available to you so a high tech fortress with no weapon tech uses mining blasters and lasers. I don't know a way to control the process though.

High-tech fortresses should probably cost more, right? Isn't in the lore that high-tech is better than low-tech, but low-tech is less expensive? Or is it more like Protoss vs Terran in Starcraft 2 where protoss are elves with fancy magic and low stats, while terran is less resourceful but more brute force?

ANd just to put out a counter arguement, I have 6 bases one makes 200k two make -50 to -10k and the rest make 50k.

All of them should have mines when upgraded to Star Fortress.  (I have not fought anything that big yet.)

I know high-tech has Fortress Shield.  That is the only thing I see going for it.  It is a pain to kill, but other than that, offense of just beams and the occasional blaster is just not scary unless I try to solo it.  Against my fleet, high-tech station is simply not a threat.  The other types had significantly better offense and felt generally more dangerous.

I guess high-tech station is nice if you have a buff fleet and you want your station to not die from sustained assault.

Took a bunch more notes!

Reaper damage maybe is too high (that is, higher than stated) for some reason? Going to take a detailed look.

("Pirate Activity" is more of a "shame what'd happen to you in a dark alley if you didn't pay protection fees" kind of thing, not necessarily involving direct fleet action. Think of it as more of a surge in organized crime.)

Guardian is supposed to be solo, yeah. The particular lone escort for a habitat is just the RNG rolling that fleet, I think.
