I've been playing without any crashes or major problems with it just fine, along with a number of other mods.

It wasn't mentioned anywhere at all but the thread title, but is this now 0.65.2a compatible?
Nothing major changed code-wise in .2a, it'll just be off somewhat balance-wise - missiles without ammo regeneration, energy weapons without the 25% dmg boost to offset the removal of flux boost or the beam range boost, frigs/destroyers/cruisers without timers.

I tried putting a ppc on a wolf class yesterday, with enhanced optics and the +5 perk from rangefinding it was pretty crazy. I was able to quite comfortably slaughter a dominator by phase skimming behind it's shields, firing reapers to flame it's engines out, then the ppc could kill t before it had a chance to move again

perhaps a slightly higher op cost to stop frigates abusing it?

PPC? Was there a weapon with those initials?

Any plans on doing a weapon balance pass ?

The weapons are mostly fine, the ships however could use at least one of their high stats hammered down. They have high HP, high armor, high dissipation, lightning fast venting... If they'd just vent much slower they would be mostly balanced!

How do the almost-not-there shields fit into that?

Because given their arc and efficiency, I do not consider them problematic. It's the neutrino signature, and I would prefer them to stay as they are. The problem is more (in my opinion) that they never have a vulnerability window: their fast flux dissipation and small flux pool makes them vent super fast, witch means they are almost always firing at full strength at you. And given their armor, you have to fire a lot at them while sustaining heavy damage or shield strain.
So I consider their shields balanced. Problem is, everything else is stronger.

While AI uses their shield arks very efficient, those shields is difficult to handle if yo are not AI he he) Plus NC frigates is not very tough/powerful either. Bigger ships is finely covered by this small arks though.

Some of the ships have have oddly low Logisitics cost though.

Hey, what does the misery actually do? Or am I gullible. (It says it does something special, and I couldn't tell what exactly.)

They have 2% chance to do 4x damage on hull, as well as Bane.

This will make them do a little deeper dig on armor, not significant but they do some difference.
