XLE Dragon-class Heavy Cruiser.



A massive ship. Has 11 active flare launchers, 2 large turrets and 2 hardpoints, 9 medium turrets and few small mounts.

I lack XLE large weapons, so boltguns and kinetic launchers are temporally here.

The Anaconda's colourscheme is slightly different. Is that because she's a transport? I feel that the Anaconda's green would look better on the other ships as well. Fitting name for that heavy cruiser, by the way.  :)

Love that you're so dedicated on making new ships again. Now, with that said, where's my Netherlands-class Battleship?  8)

Its speed is indeed quite good - 60. For comparison - the fastest cruiser (ISA Kentucky  Light Cruiser) has 65.

I`m considering a possibility of replacing two current large hardpoints in the middle with a single heavy built-in weapon. Probably some variation of incenirator beam or magna cannon (that`s a Dragon after all!).

Oooh, shiny cruiser.  I'd definitely vote* for some kind of single built-in heavy weapon in place of those two hard points.

I'd also vote for leaving color scheme alone; the Anaconda's drab olive-green works well for a transport, but I wouldn't want to see that copied to other ships.

Wyvern is 100% correct about the math.

Improved the sprite a bit by giving it some 'muscle'. Removed the second hardpoint.
Showing for comparison the original colour scheme that i used for XLE. People complained alot about it being too contrast.

I just want to drop in and say, excellent work so far. :)

That Dragon Heavy Cruiser simply dwarfs the other cruiser, I's classify it as a Battlecruiser in my book.

And I still await that UIN battleship. ;)

I don't know if this is intentional or not, but the shuttle pod you use when you transfer command is SO SLOW. Its max speed is 50 with the engine boost. This means it can't catch up to any ship, unless it's a battleship stuck in a nebula, and stops completely dead if in a nebula itself.

Edit: Just looked at the shipdata file, it apparently has a speed of 50. Changing it to 250 to see if that does anything. It should.

Yeah. I know that.

I copied the shuttle pod entry and forgot that my ship hulls file does not have a 2% 4% etc column :) That`s why game errourneously uses OP values of 50 points as speed.

Its max speed was also set to 50. I changed it to 250 and it works now.

Guys, who knows other fantasy reptilian creatures? I`m a bit of stuck here with just a Serpent and a Bassilisk.

Currently i`m using: Wurm, Wyvern, Hydra, Drake and Dragon. Plus Cobra, Vyper and Raptor for fighters and Anaconda for Armed freighter.

Hmm. Those are too geo-/national-specific names. It would look a bit odd to have an Asian faction with Northen ship names ;)
