Or perhaps a toned down R.U.N.E hull mod. It would make your weapons/engines harder to shut down and faster to repair but without being instant like the Thule's one.

Vinya PD Matrix seems a good idea, i'm curious to see how it fare against ballistics though.

Also, maybe a bunch of shield drone. Not just drones with shields that circle around your ships (like the Neutrino Banshee) but big drones that directly soak up projectiles. There was something like that in the DS corp mod if i recall correctly. ValkyriaL's Tesladora destroyer also got something that work the same way. Could be interesting to see ships protecting themselves with cannon fodder drone.

going to try point defense drones, small ones first, now only if i could figure out where i made a mistake in adding them so i can test it


Edit:

Ill be adding videos of some tests, i find it amusing that the codex considers this cruiser overpowered despite the fact that it cant take on a whole fleet, still need some way to help with the loss of weapons mid battle

changed a few things, I added a slightly modified RUNE hull mod that my faction can use, which still needs tweaking, thanks for the suggestion Thule

I changed the interceptors sprite to make it match the style of the rest of my ships
I also added PD drones to the cruiser, haven't tested them yet but will soon

Video of the smaller frigate which still needs tweaking:

anyway, is it possible to make a hullmod that makes the armor act in some way as reactive armor (explosive resistant)

Finally I need some class name suggestions

Do you plan for a naming scheme of any sort?

as of right now, my ships are only named as what they are, EX: the frigate is currently named frigate

I was thinking the ship class names could fit with the faction but it doesnt have to

Jokes aside, i like the looks of those ships, could be something good, but the shading could definitely be improved on.

The PD Matrix can't hit ballistic projectiles, only ships and missiles.

Also I'm demanding one named Fyrestone, for the Borderlands reference >.>

EDIT:
Silver used THESAURUS...

It's super effective!

If by "good guys" you mean "elitist regime that suppresses colonial independence and thrives off of an overwhelmingly deep gap in wealth between social classes," then yes.

Looking good, Ember. Although I felt naked while watching that video. I saw all those missiles and thought: SHIELD! SHIEEEELD!
