The IW thing isn't a balance thing, it's a bug that needs fixing, and so far I haven't been able to look at it.

Heya Cycerin,
                   another problem i've noticed is that your hull mods (like the Blackrock targeting suite) are not showing up in the refit menus.  I do have these mods running.

Syndicate asp
BRDY (of course)
Exrelin
Hiigaran
Interstellar federation
TUP v5
tradewinds
Kadur theocracy
Valkyrians
nomands
gendune
neutrino
Weapons pack 0.32
omnifactory
and Lazy lib

as far as i know their all up to date with current versions.

just thought you would like to know, and if there is a quick fix to it. that would be greatly appreciated :D. just finally got my hands on an Imaginos. that ship is beastly despite having no shields.

^ I'll take a look at it. It could simply be the fact that there are too many hullmods, a lot of those mods add custom ones.

I've been redesigning some ships/sprites and denoising them to remove visual clutter. The Revenant feels very good right now.

If I may ask how long have you been kitbashing/creating spaceships for games? Because honestly these are some of the best ship designs besides ones that are actually in games I have ever seen.

Shield, would you kindly tell me what game has ships sexier than BR and where to buy it?

2007 or so, I guess, when it comes to spriting and making 2D spaceships. Then some stuff from way back, school notebook doodles and whatnot... but I guess that doesn't count. ;D

I highly recommend getting Photoshop if you do all your spriting with raster graphics. Especially, Content Aware Fill and Content Aware Resize is very useful when you're cleaning up a ship. I think if you kitbash exclusively and don't feel comfortable drawing, those functions will be even more useful.

Couldn't resist tweaking them some more. I think they're pretty much golden now. I feel bothered by the conflict of pixel thin and brushstroke-like outlines still, but that's just a problem with my artstyle I'll have to gradually work out.

I tried the most recent DEV version; just stopping by to say that the Karkinos can't solo the Onslaught without the Deracinator anymore. Rotating the medium ballistic slots was a clever way to change the PD coverage. I think that means you've succeeded in rebalancing so far.
I noticed that the Karkinos rotates a lot easier than it accelerates. It's kind of weird, but not crucial.

Good to hear. Ship got a lot of straight-up stat nerfs as well, but so did almost every BRDY ship. There's been a fair bit of power creepage since 2012.

The Karkinos has a lot of steering thrusters, but its considerable mass is tough to lug around. Plus, the inertia of having to transport an inter-dimensional vortex around in realspace constantly. enough justification?

Recent changes: Cosmetic weapons are additively blended, the Kurmaraja has a new animation for when it uses its ship system, and the most important change of all: The Hammerclaw now transfers force to whatever it hits.

No, this has nothing to do with me getting to despoil Sundog's amazing scripts.

Oh, good! I'd hate to think anyone was benefiting from reading my scripts  :)

ok. ill see what i can cut out then, im thinking its probably the extra weapons pack since that adds about 5-6 extra hull mods. haven't seen that first ship before or is that a redesign of the Kurmaraja?

It's the Eschaton superfreighter.  One of my new favorites for the capacity, good overall defense and having such a good look to match with a Blackrock fleet so I can dump the Atlas.  As for the hullmods, just running the latest dev version that was linked in this thread, I don't see them as available either.
