heh yea, I've actually found myself right clicking to get shields up a couple times during these tests
I may put the flare system onto that frigate though

the biggest problem my faction will have is multiple fights, so I may have to buff outside battle repair if possible

also you should see what happens when I put your flack cannons onto them

Edit
Added a heavy fighter and changed the destroyer sprite... again

I also renamed a bunch of the ships

here are the named ships so far:
Bomber: Conflagration
Interceptor: Flare
Heavy Fighter: Firehawk
Frigate: Torch
Heavy Frigate: Blaze

theres something about having explosions between dueling ships that i find appealing

Aaah! Kill it! Kill it with fire!

I take it that this is Firestorm Federation's national anthem?

Dunno how high you increased your armour, but I'd double it at least, perhaps even triple it, compared to vanilla values. :)

I might do that

btw the destroyers armor is at 1200 an 4500 hull

the frigates at 450 and 700

hull is at 2200 and 3000 for the frigates as well

Im thinking that compared to the codex my ships wont truly be balanced as I don't think its very accurate in rating ship without shields


Anyway, as soon as i finish the carrier and a missile destroyer I think Ill post a download
though I still need to change fleet ship numbers and both station and convoy loads

Edit

tried to make a missile destroyer and ended up with what could be a capital ship, not sure if its good or could use more work model wise,

i havnt gone very far into making it look pretty, i put the cruiser next to it for size reference though it could definately be a lot smaller

Looking good. If you want to make it smaller, I'd chop off those black squares and the nose between them, making it nice and stumpy and at the same time have room for some hardpoints.

I think theres still space up front for hard points though I sorta forgot to make some, anyway there are going to be 4 large missile hard points in the back

heres one a more manageable size with a cruiser for size comparison, I hope I didnt go overboard with the turrets

If I remember correctly, the Paragon is something like 9 small, 6 medium, 4 large. IF I remember correctly... I don't have one in any of my saves at the moment, too busy playing with Hiigaran ships.  :P

that cap ship that you can buy from the pirates has more i think, anyway, Ive got a question

should i give these ships a high speed but low accelerations? some of my ships already have this somewhat but its not very noticable but it does give an interesting feel to a battle, and a need to manage your velocity

decided to give it a try and im still a bit unsure

I also tested the Capital ship though i have yet to test it against other cap ships

the movement feeling I get from it is what I would expect of early ships though which is definitely what I'm aiming for though it could still use a bit of work

havnt been able to get all the missiles on though, I also seem to like using your weapons Gotcha

ive always hated ships with an excessively low acceleration, but thats mostly because im unable to handle them properly
