Am I the only one who got a maddening urge to assemble a glorious armada to engage in a battle matched only in its magnificence with the amount of fire being laid down? Oh, yes, there will be FIRE!

Yeah, but i need to figure out what i want for ISA. A real carrier with lots of launch bays and thus - a fleeing non-combatant. Or a battlecarrier with just 2 bays and powerful weapons. The current battleship fills the second role quite effectively with its 2 bays.

So i will think for a while ;)

What about a ship with powerful weapons that has swarms of weak, but regenerating fighters

You mean fighter-like drones? Thought about this when was designing the mothership. Tested it on RSF drone destroyer. Too powerful IMHO. Makes carrier absolutely immune to everything including Frigates and Destroyers.

I can accept Aliens to have an uber ship that`s almost impossible to deal with. But other factions - bad idea. I`m still considering whether to include RSF dread into campaign.

Just blew that beastly mothership! Had to sacrifice entire fleet of ISA and RSF ships. Things could get much better if i took out mothership`s platforms first.


Mission Beast Hunt. How`s to. Step by step...

Spoiler


1. throw away skimers by pd ships and drone carriers
2. deal with phase jumpers by the same forces
3. bring in some assault fighters and interceptors to take out the carriers
4. bring in ISA battleship and pick the platforms one by one
5. bring in RSF battleship and as many ISA missile ships to finally kill the beast.

Fortress shields are the best! Use them to suck as much damage as you can while other ships are engaging.
Use flares to divert fighters`, drones` and jumpers` lasers. Helps a lot when jumpers teleport behind your shields.
Once platforms are gone - kill off the beast by ISA missile salvoes and bombers. Call in the carrier, his time has finally come.
MIRVs do work nice against platforms is specifically targeted at them.
ISA phase skimmers are fun. They can kamikaze into the mother ship and fire their torps or just go BOOM there making a hole in the armor.

Updated the mod to 2.8 (compatible with 0.53). Changelog is here.

EDITED:

these may be issues with missing 'null' ships in campaign. Please report these.

That reminds me so much of the Tolian Confederation's ship designs. Were you inspired by them?

Well, started a new game, got caught by a lone alien ship. I didn't think it would be that much bother since I had faced them before in a previous version (Yes, this is the cue to facepalm). Got into the battle, raised shields in preparation for the attack. Then it skimmed behind me.

...yeah, didn't last long on that one :P

You should have carefully read that ship`s description :)
