Here is a new RSF SU-74 heavy multirole fighter.

Weapons are:

2x 14mm dual guns
Mosquito missile
Wasp missile
Arrow missile launcher

Flies in a wing of 3 crafts
It also uses manoeuvring jets as the rest of RSF fighters.

Finally, can we have a Manchester-class destroyer for the UIN? Pretty please?

Okim wants to use EU country names for UIN ships.
what about the "flying" dutchmen  ;)

Love it! :D

We all must decide on a name for the new Capital Ship of the UIN.  Kingdom-Class, Britannia-Class, or Albion-Class.  I'd say Kingdom or Britannia would win, just because they're epic names. 8)

EDIT:
Anyways, found a few bugs, or not.

*The rear 14mm Defense cannon on the TU-620 (the one with the 125mm Battlecannon) has no traverse, unlike the TU-610, which does have traverse.
*The 14mm Dual Cannon has Kinetic damage while teh 14mm Defense Cannon has fragmentation
*Rarely does PD ever do it's job, only in large numbers can it actually take down a missile.  Suggest that you make PD a bit more accurate (all the flak guns are fine as of now), especially the PD Rotary gun (the one that the ISA uses)

Update 3.1 is ready. The link and changelog are on the main page.

Soldier, the only bug listed is TU`s rear gun. Fixed it.

14mm dual is a support/anti-fighter defence weapon. 14mm defence cannon is an anti-defence cannon. Both suck at their roles are the majority of defence weapons. The good thing - they are quite cheap.

Accuracy is not the only thing that influences how good you ship is at shooting down rockets. Its also crew based, based on target and firing ship speed and some other factors. Look at how Vickers fires - it has almost none deviation, but it still fails to score a hit. In contrary a 2-5 degree deviation increases the likelyhood of your pd weapons to score a hit. That`s why 14mm quad gun is so good at shooting missiles.

P.S.: that`s the last update until i get myself to the point where playing XCOM or even thinking of it will produce a huge desire to bring back my meal :)

That`s probably means that by this time Starfarer will get more than skills...

Well, guess I'll have to get more flak cannons and 14mm Quad Guns. :) Anyways, no updated sprites? :( I wanted to see that epic B-202 bomber in action.

And eh, forums tend to die and then revive when the next patch comes.  If this mod gets terribly destroyed in the next update and Okim isn't here, I'll step in for the time being.

EDIT:
Ne're mind, the new sprites are in.  Just part of Okim's "7. some othr stuff i can`t recall :)" list. ;D

Ah, yeah. I`ve updated ISA and UIN fighter sprites. And added in a crawler, SU-74, 2 fighters for UIN, a frigate for UIN and lots of weapons.

BTW, new UIN missiles seem to be a bit displaced to the bottom of the launchers. Probably not so critical and can wait till the next update, yeah?

Re-imaging of the ISA Indiana destroyer. New sprite is larger, more colourful and made in the similar way to the other new sprites.



Old sprite / new sprite

The same destroyer in game:


Weapons are left the same as before. 5 medium universal and 5 small universal turrets. Though this ship now has a small turret on its back to fend off pirate missiles.

Two yellow lights are docks that represent hangar space. No combat landings are allowed during the combat, so this is not a carrier.

Much better!  Will all the ISA ships get the same treatment?

EDIT:
My only gripe about this mod so far is that the RSF seem to lack a carrier (the Scimitar is a PRIVATE ship) and the Ark (the 3-fight deck dedicated carrier) is a bit to unwieldy.

Um, what? RSF is still there, but with new updated sprites.

EDITED: just realized that you meant Federation dread...

It is in game in one of the missions. You can`t control it as you have to fight it.

You can drive it through dev mode if you wish, but the amount of the turrets and corresponding arcs of fire makes it very laggy.
