[0.9.1a] Another random SWP
« on: August 02, 2020, 05:26:53 PM »

Hey

I was messing up with reloadable missiles and decided to share them with you. There is also a heavy cruiser to test in a mission to make this easier.

well... excuse my poor english and have fun. Ahh... and thanks to passwalker for the mjolnir sprite.

- Graf Spee sprite tweaked a bit now she plays a little bit more like a Conquest: High cap and dissipation but expensive and crappy shield.
- More tweaks to the rockets, they will behave better on side mounted hardpoints.
- Squall rockets not longer have EMP as their large counterpart, for balancing reasons.
- Singlnir have its alpha damage nerfed and is slightly more flux efficient.
- Eagles are 24DP now and have 155OP
- Added 3 new weapons
- Thunderbolt new sprite and added Maneuvering Jets as system.

10/10/2020

- added two Eagle variants: a XIV themed one, with two large slots and a boring midline version of Tahlan Eagle(P) (I was training my photoshop skills)
- the new rockets are a lot more pleasant to use now, especially the pilum
- some improvements and adjustments to the thunderbolt wing, it is behaving better now.

quick changes:

- Graf Spee: hitpoints buff 10000 to 12000
- Graf Spee: armor nerf 1200 to 1000
- Singlnir: nerf OP 14 to 15
- All reloadable missiles: buff flux/shot 0

- Weapons will be properly used across the factions now - Thanks mora
- Added ship description - Thanks PrismaticFlux
- Graf Spee hullmod - now increases the range by 60% (was 100%) and is still compatible with ITU
- Graf Spee shield upkeep nerf - 0.6 from 0.5
- Graf Spee shield eff nerf - 1.1 from 1.0
- Singlnir energy/shot nerf - 600 from 500

added Thunderbolt, a heavy bomber equiped with a light needler (single burst) and two pilum rockets (not reloadable). I'll make a better sprite later.

Looks fun !

I love how the Graf Spee's turret layout mimics the one of the actual ship. And the single-barrel Mjolnir looks very interesting.

The naming scheme still need work but i love the ship design, the old and ancient feeling into it, remind me of WWII ship, i hope you succeed making ARSWP according to your vision :D

Because the mod lacks faction files, the Singlnir is pretty much unknown to all factions except the remnants.
Also default_ship_roles file is absent so the Graf Spee will not spawn in markets. Or is it a testing-only ship?

No, that's a noob modder fault.

If it's thats the case, I have a modded version of your mod with the necessary files. Would you like to have it to... speed things along?

Here it is

List of changes:

Added Singlnir to all factions that know the Mjolnir Cannon (including modded factions I have installed)
Shortened engine trail length of the Graf Spee from 197.5 to 107.5
Changed descriptions a little bit
Changed cosmetic explosion color and radius of the dumb_pilum_rocket to match the original pilum projectile
Gave weapons names

Hey, I wrote up a description for the Graf Spee if you'd like to make use of it. I really like the attention to detail and I'm looking forwards to trying it out in my next campaign!

Quote
Straddling the line between cruiser and capital ship, the Graf Spee would serve a role traditionally fulfilled by battlecruisers however lacklustre engine power and an emphasis on ballistic mounts have led to most admirals dubbing it a ‘pocket battleship.’ Some captains adore it for the condensed package of heavy firepower whilst others despise it for uncomfortable quarters and the ‘pocket prestige’ for leading such a ship. This stigma is worsened by debate around this vessel. Some say it shouldn’t be compared to battleships due to it’s lacking scale yet others state it’s ordnance sets it apart from any cruiser available. Regardless this bygone design, re-imagined by history fanatics, is welcome in any fleet accompanying ships of larger and smaller stature.

Thanks everyone and sorry for the long delay. I'm pretty busy at work this month.

I updated the first post with the new version to download.

Thumbs up for the Long Tom sounds. I so needed regenerative missiles like these and they blend well with vanilla and modded content alike.
Please check the reload size and rate values for them however, right now upgrading squall from small to medium nets you with 3 times the firepower for double OP cost while doing the same for pilum only doubles the firepower.

When you release your mod to the public you might want to refrain from including unused sprites (I surely remember an Eagle) and work in progress stuff that is not ready to be tested.

Note that vanilla follows either the Mk.II naming convention or parentheses like (XIV), whereas you used arabic numbers and lower case. Eagle mk2s poke my eyes out every time they pop up in a market. They do look great however. Like Eagles with a fighter bay. No, really. They truly look good. Alright, I'll stop. But I like them. A lot.
On a minor note I personally find the appearance of the Graf Spee immersion breaking because it resembles a boat instead of a space ship. And you know, there is no liquid water in space.

ps. Almost forgot, technically the smaller Squalls did not lose their EMP warhead, their warhead lost their EMP capabilities. If they happened to lose their warhead then those must have been replaced with some alternative warheads and at that point both the delivery system and the warhead would be distinct from the original technology and you could not call them Squalls anymore, since they would not boast with the same specs. So yeah, wording.
