Base Game And Modded Game Carriers
« on: December 05, 2018, 05:23:28 PM »

So, I've noticed a little something going on in my game, and it likely goes for base game as well. If it's a feature, ignore this post.

Carriers in bounty fleets, like deserters and such do not at any circumstances carry any fighters/bombers.

It's all guns, and tough hulls due to an over-abundance of the following, below.

Reinforced Bulkheads
Blast Doors
Hardened Subsystems
Unstable Injector


As I said before, if it's a feature, ignore it, but I would at least like to bring it to your notice, since mods are affected by this too.


as seen here, 3 different instances, the Starblazer being the clearest example. The Mora, at the very least, had fighters/bombers. Extremely rare to see a carrier have any fighters/bombers in a bounty fleet, unless they're built in.

Hmm - this seems probably like it's a mod-related issue? I mean, regardless of hullmods, you'd think that at least Talons would end up being mounted, so it seems like something else would be in play.

Here's a quick screenshot of the first bounty with carriers I happened to find just now:

I suppose it's possible some autofit changes have fixed this, but I'm 99% sure I've run into bounties with carriers while playtesting prior to the release and they had fighters.

Alright, well, i'll ask around and see if anything changes this.

I'm quite mid-late way into the playthrough and fully established a colony, if you need more details.

Currently with a capital ship in the fleet and quite a lot of carriers.

I've heard suggestions on Discord (well, by one person) that deserter fleets don't autofit properly if the source faction and pirates don't have overlap in the weapons/fighter wings they use.

(That specifically seems super unlikely, which faction's weapons etc get used for autofit is an either/or situation, there's no code to compute an overlap etc. A quick look at a TriTach deserter bounty in vanilla confirms that seems to be working - an Astral, a couple Herons, and lots of fighters. Although, it does look like it's pulling weapons/fighters from the pirate set, which it probably shouldn't be, so, made a note.)
