The best thing is, that ship is not overpowered! It fair good vs other capital ships, but an onslaught wins (AI vs AI). As much awesome the Kark is, it's still balanced. As always cyc's ships fill a well rounded niche. That's a good job.

Thanks, but jury's still out on if it's overpowered or not. Then again, I like to go a little bit crazy with this one, since after all, it's a capital ship, and capital ships are supposed to be a little crazy.

Don't torture 'em, Uomoz.

Since most of the features I want are on the backburner due to lack of java expertise, I'm going to release the 0.6a compatible version with the new stuff soon. Minus certain things that aren't ready yet.
Out of curiosity, which features are those that are being backburnered?

Wyvern is 100% correct about the math.

Basically, a perfect implementation of the Karkinos' Scalar Deracinator ship system, but thanks to LazyWizard I have it 90% of how I want it to be. all hail the wizard

The other stuff is mostly detail and polish, but I have a lot of ambitiously crazy things planned for the future.

For those who have "[missile_medium]" and "[beam_light_loop]" related crashes, I threw together a patch for the current BETA v0.30 (0.54 and up) release for those who would still like to play without crashes but didn't knew how to fix it: http://www.mediafire.com/download/pnb98eziibdfynr/BRDY_Weapon_fix_0.6.rar

All you need to do is extract the 3 files to "Starsector\mods\Blackrock Drive Yards\data\weapons" and over write the 3 file.

This should fix the crash related to the Achilles Misiles (and pod version of it) and the Argus Particle Beam.

Running lights are pretty neat. Now all we need is vapor trails from launched missiles due to outflowing gas.

That ship is looking mighty fine indeed. *thumbs up*
It scares the living daylights out of me though.

Teleportation with a long cooldown. When you arrive, everything nearby gets blasted with energy damage and EMP.

 Hehe, you weren't joking when you said you wanted to do something crazy with it.
 How far can you teleport? And what's the damage radius?

1250 units, and the damage radius is exactly what you see on the gif with the explosion. Also, everything gets pushed away from the ship, most notably fighters, who get pretty screwed up.
