The Onslaught's new weapons are glorious and its just a pure beast of a ship now. It was a good idea of yours to take some extra time for this supplement patch and really get a lot of things squared away - now you can take a good long time to work on the next patch knowing that everything is in top shape. ;D

Hopefully there won't be any horrible bugs to ruin that plan :)

Now to find out if it's save compatible with .53a...

Ought to be, though you might run into some of the squashed bugs (flare launchers showing up as weapons, say) if you use an old save.

So after this are you planning something special for us Alex?
Like stations or mining or maybe level progression *wink* *wink*

Pretty sure he said after this patch (and any hotfixes for possible horrific bugs in this patch) he'll be focusing on primarily campaign stuff. We can only guess about what part he'll be working on first as there is a ton of different things he could implement. The fact is I feel as if this part will actually be trickier to work on than the combat.

He had better start with character progression or officers. Or something else I didn't spend countless hours and depriving myself of sleep adding.

(The further away those are, the more time I feel special darnit!)

Whatever happens, you are still special to me, Verrius!  ;D

Wow, the new drone on the Tempest makes it a fair amount more powerful now, especially since the drone also works as a point-defence platform. Given in my save I'm flying them (well, I was until I picked up an Apogee for myself) I don't mind too much, but I'm kind of scared about trying to take one on with a frigate now, possibly even a destroyer.

While trying out the new Onslaught, I fought with a Conquest, and well, it looks like its AI still sucks when it comes to broadside.

I mean, it actively used its maneuvering jets to turn itself frontally to my guns.
Unless it's a evasive move to decrease possible damage zone...

Oh, Alex. I must say. I was never all that interested in flying the tempest until now. It always seemed so uninteresting for some reason. But now it's sooooo fun. It's a mini carrier! And it's boss.  :D

The Conquest has actually used its Reapers against me now with the maneuvering jets. The AI isn't perfect, but the Conquest is fairly well outgunned in that matchup and needs its Reapers to equalize firepower.

I simply cannot wait to get my hands on this, the new built-in weapon feature all by itself is worth the hassles of finally moving my mod out of the core directories!  Will be downloading and installing it Sunday when I finally have some free time again :)

Actually about these reapers on Conquest - is it intended as AI test under difficult conditions ?:) Design is obviously suboptimal (with reasonable outfit ship is able to provide sustained fire from single broadside, interrupting that damage stream to fire very risky reapers is usually not worth it) and very hard to use even for player...
