I actually wasn't aware of the line about joining Blackrock on character creation since I was loading an old save, but tried it myself and no luck either.  I don't expect the Imaginos regenerative hull to be selectable anyway, but that targeting suite and assault fitting I've just never seen available.

Yeah there are suppose to be 3 hull mods that you can put on Blackrock ships but they arn't selectable for some reason.

Hmm, I must have messed something up with the code that's supposed to make it unavailable to non-Blackrock ships.

I think I'm going to release this version officially once I iron out that bug, the Ironweaver bug, and the Flux Ejector bug.

Meanwhile, new portraits for interacting with the faction:

Sundog and I have been busy. Meet the Scalar Rejector. Any projectile nearby gets sucked in, turned into energy, and then unleashed on anything nearby. This is what right clicking as the Imaginos does now.

The damage done is proportional to how much damage what you sucked in would have caused. This means frag is weighed less than energy and so on. If you manage to catch an AM blaster shot, or something like a solid TPC salvo... yeah, it's glorious.

Yes, the other aspects of the ship are being nerfed to compensate. ;)

That is utterly amazing!

And really unique, I wish I could code stuff like that ...

Is that in the current version of Blackrock?

I think I can reverse engineer the rightclick mechanic to use for a unique shield mechanic for BGE.
Don't get me wrong, I don't want to use the whole system but making my ships heal a slight bit on a right click would be pretty cool and fitting for the faction.
Also I could rebalance my ships a little bit downward if I had that.

Would you mind?

Not at all. It's Sundog's code, anyway, so it's his call!

Wow, both concept and execution are absolutely astonishing! Never seen anything like that before, the next best thing that comes to mind is goddamn Kirby. I think it would be worth to base an entire new faction on that concept. Props to Sundog and Cycerin!

e/ Can you jump before rejecting the absorbed fire? For example absorbing an Onslaught's fire and then jumping to its rear to take out the engines with the collected energy?

And more importantly, can the AI use this trick effectively? Would be cool to see the enemy Imaginos jumping on your reaper torpedo to regurgitate it on you. Also can it absorb beam weaponry?

Oh and the rift cannon looks awesome.

Thanks a lot guys, I'm glad you are as excited about this as we are, haha!

If you want to help test the Scalar Rejector/Imaginos out, here's the dev build:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32517861/Blackrock%20Drive%20Yards.7z

e/ Can you jump before rejecting the absorbed fire? For example absorbing an Onslaught's fire and then jumping to its rear to take out the engines with the collected energy?

The release happens at the end of the phase out, so the only control you have is how you move while phased, which is difficult because the ship controls are locked as soon as you activate it.

You can obviously use friendly projectiles along in the mixture, but they have half the multiplier of enemy projectiles. It's still quite effective to turn two Fury torpedoes and a Rift Cannon salvo into a huge AoE blast, however.

And more importantly, can the AI use this trick effectively? Would be cool to see the enemy Imaginos jumping on your reaper torpedo to regurgitate it on you. Also can it absorb beam weaponry?

The AI uses it as a normal phase cloak, which means that more often than not, it ends up absorbing and returning fire. Beams just pass through harmlessly, but you can catch energy projectiles.

Currently the damage absorbtion mults are 0.3 frag, 1.0 energy/kinetic, and 0.9 HE.

That is an error related to a changed or deleted variant or the weapon slot of the Imaginos has been renamed.

You can fix that easily with the ship editor or you change the variant file according to the hull file.
My guess is a renamed weapon slot.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention that. The Imaginos has changed sufficiently to break saves... you might crash on mission selection too, if so, go to Fractal Softworks\Starsector\saves and delete the Imaginos variants saved therein under relevant missions. There is no need to edit variants, the new stock variants are already updated.

You might be able to fix it by editing the save file itself and changing the Imaginos variant you're flying, but I've never tried that myself.
