It doesn't throw errors. Not on my side it doesn't.

Those are in the folders, and the refit sim. Don't get your point, as they don't show any errors.

Yup, the hawk. Well, look, when i balancing stuff i look at ships "meat", tech level  and vanilla ships stats. (well you dont want to balance them with vanilla i forgot that). So, bigger sprite, bigger mass, bigger mass slower speed and lower agility UNLESS it have stronger engine but then it have it must have reduction in max flux and venting etc. I first determine BASE value for ship and then modifying it accordingly :) and after that goes sim mod and lots of AI vs AI fights and little tweaks and so on...

My head hurts now....... ;D

And I *do* balance stuff for this mod. It's just that they seem good as-is?

Here's my result of my first run:

Opinions:
I think the weapons on the Achetes are a bit op and should be nerf'd, since I could basically put almost every control group on auto fire and almost solo their team (Going to test if this works).
I also think the Anzac's should get a small speed buff.

Edit: Maybe not nerf the weapons on the Achetes but make it somewhat more vulnerable.

Ah, I'm terrible with huge battles.  Failed every time I tried it (I enjoy smaller battles, maybe 1-2 cruisers, a few frigates/fighters), but no offense, it was worth the half an hour of me failing. ;D

I agree with the first, the second I disagree with, those things are beastly right now, one squad can kill off a frigate and more can kill off destroyers. I think that right now they feel really balenced, cause their slower speed keeps them from just zooming everywhere and killing everything

Yeah, didn't really look at them fight so they probably don't need that speed buff. Also just tried to solo them with my Achetes didn't work too good. Managed to get some fighters but nothing else.

And I *do* balance stuff for this mod. It's just that they seem good as-is?

Uhh, look, currently i'm working... on... something... thus do not have necessary time to play mission at least few times to see how everything is working... That's that why i cant give you answer (if you asked me ofc, if not ignore this post)

Fun fact: a well fitted Achetes can win a fight vs an Eagle Class Assault Carrier without taking any armor damage, barely any flux and also make it vent its flux before reaching the Achetes.

Edit: The same thing with an Onslaught, Stormwolves can also do this.
