Re: [0.9.1a] Kadur Remnant 3.1.0 - Faction Overhaul 2020-01-14

quick question, while i'm here:

Can you get the blueprints for the Qamar Insurgency stuff? Namely: the medicant, the camel and the laser weapon (Which i forgot the name of, but i am missing it as a BP.)

Also i haven't seen Qamar themed ships at all in my games, i only know they exist cuz they are referenced in the changelog.

You can't get the blueprints, no - they will eventually be part of a quest. You should be able to find the ships as patrols around the Revenant Gestalt.

You're right, i spent a bit more time in the mirage system and those fleets do spawn every now and then.

Can't wait for that quest! ;D

When you use the special ability or fire the built-in gun it builds flux on the central hull, which only really matters for the zero flux boost, which you'll really want on the Caliph.

3.1.2
- Prophet weapon arcs nerfed very slightly

yeah, i kinda agree about removing the "tips". I know you include the tips about how to remove them manually but a think average joe will having hard time finding that. Let's keep the meme alive in Discord instead.

You're, uh, several major versions behind.

The (Q) version of the Medicant has a minor problem. The first letter isn't capitalized and has been like this since the rework(which was very good). Surely this is a mistake?

- Prophet weapon arcs nerfed very slightly

My heart cries very slightly

Edit: J/K, I wouldn't have noticed it if you hadn't mentioned it... in fact, i don't notice the change even AFTER the mention.

Whoops! I'll clean that up for the next update, thanks for pointing it out.

I don't remember actually doing it and the discord post about it appears to either have mysteriously disappeared or never existed in the first place so even I'm not sure anymore.  :-\

On a more serious note, i would like to ask everyone for advice on the fighters if they've been using them.

So far the only thing i've tried is, of course, the Myrmidon, who's MASSIVE punch literally blows a whole through any ship, i have a Seraph with full myrmidons, the fact that they are pretty hard to kill is a plus to me. (or at least hey seem to survive very unlikely scenarios) Downsides include: lack of tracking and the fact that, rarely, a missile can bounce out of control and they may end up hitting your own ships.

I haven't been able to try the other fighters because i've been sitting too comfortably with the Shen from Tiandong as my "general purpose" fighter. I do get a kick on the Neferi from what little i've seen it in action, because it is the most "kadur" of all the fighters "super fast and basically suicidal".

I'd be very interested in more feedback on the fighters in general, but here's what I was thinking while designing them:

Interceptors:
Dervish - Basic interceptor. Frag missiles and proximity-fuzed gun make it less effective against warships than massed Talons, but better at actually being an interceptor.
Neferi - Hyperspecialized elite/heavy interceptor. Best against enemy elite or low-count fighters/bombers, especially garbage against destroyer+ ships, not great against heavily shielded anything.

Assault
Martyr (HE) and Termite (KE) - (very) Cheap damage, good for converted hangars or when you're out of OP because you filled up on expensive Kadur guns and Myrmidons. Termite also offers (ineffective) point defense.
Phalanx - Heavy kinetic assault fighter and bomber leader. Slightly faster and burst-ier than a Broadsword, but also more fragile and lower sustained DPS. Microspike missiles give it some effectiveness against light armor.
Ghulam - Tough-as-nails HE/EMP assault fighter. Wants to loiter around enemy warships and has the armor to do it. Not great against shields.
Immortal - Superfighters are never a good idea but I made one anyway. Big, tough, expensive, mostly HE weapons but kinda good at everything.

Bomber
Mamluk - Light bomber, payload is lower damage than most and susceptible to PD but guided and fairly long-ranged. Good finisher.
Veles - Energy rockets. Flashy, all-purpose, and somewhat expensive.
Hoplite - Kinetic bomber to lead your HE bombers. Quite safe for a bomber on account of being fast, long-ranged, and shielded.
Abid - Piranha analogue, useful for same purpose - killing stations, massed lowtech or derelict ships, et cetera. Tough and carries its own PD, which is surprisingly effective at clearing waves of missiles and light interceptors when massed.
Myrmidon - Abid's big sister, sort of a Cobra analogue if you jammed two of them together in a single slot, made them even tougher, and covered them in light PD guns. Tough as hell, so slow as to be borderline useless against most warships, deadly to stations and slow capital ships.

Support
Dirk and Arquebusier - Both fairly long-ranged and somewhat fragile support fighters, better on gunline ships than brawly battlecarriers.

Oh yeah, it is the most quintessential Kadur fighter imo.

Ghulam - Tough-as-nails HE/EMP assault fighter. Wants to loiter around enemy warships and has the armor to do it. Not great against shields.
I've considered using this one instead of Tiandong's Shen as my "general purpose harassment fighter", but the Shen won my heart first... that's basically it. To be fair i haven't seen it much in action, so i don't have a good comparison yet.

Immortal - Superfighters are never a good idea but I made one anyway. Big, tough, expensive, mostly HE weapons but kinda good at everything.
Myrmidon - Abid's big sister, sort of a Cobra analogue if you jammed two of them together in a single slot, made them even tougher, and covered them in light PD guns. Tough as hell, so slow as to be borderline useless against most warships, deadly to stations and slow capital ships.
While Super Fighters might not be ok, Super Bombers certainly are, there is very little that a squad of 4 myrmidons can't take down, provided the enemy shields are down or mostly down, i'm probably overkilling it with 4 myrmidons but man... it is so satisfying to watch even if my Seraph is left with scraps of OP.

Dirk and Arquebusier - Both fairly long-ranged and somewhat fragile support fighters, better on gunline ships than brawly battlecarriers.

I tried using these ones one time, but they didn't click with me, they seem ok for the price thought, specially the arquebusier.

For the rest i can't really say, if someone else wants to fill in, please do. :)
