v17 release download and notes are on the last post of the previous page.

Does the swarm host make it's fighters stronger, or is it just a fun way to use fighters without a physical carrier?

The supply cost per wing is pretty good, and the HVB version has a Targeting Feed system. The general behavior also favors some kinds of bombers, which will have very fast attack runs, essentially immediately firing and going back to reload. (Careful with that though; reloading bombers build flux. Keeping a durable non-bomber wing in a swarm is generally a good idea.)

But otherwise no, no explicit stat buffs or the like.

A swarm host, with a bit of imaginative mod, without fighter, can be made into an almost invincible decoy. The only thing that can harm it a little is Tach-lance and it can still tank it for a few minutes.

Valljud ability is very OP against orbital station.

Gravity mine is very strong and cheap to deploy.

I encountered an issue with the Valljud in the most recent update, it appears to create the old disruption mine instead of the disruption zone. I checked the ships.csv and it is listed and the disruption mine. not sure what other info to provide atm

If you have distortion effects from graphicslib turned off it will look very similar to the old mine - but should still function correctly mechanically, disrupting ships that are within it's area of effect.

Beyond that, no idea.

Hi, this is my first post on the forums. I registered just so I could write it. I have been playing the game for about 2 weeks now. It reminds me of Sid Meiers pirates. Loved that game. As a fulltime gamer I didn't want to learn the game vanilla. It seemed like a waste of time. So I of course downloaded every single mod that seemed relativley balanced or added something and attacked the game like my life depended on learning every inch of it. I struggled at first to find a flag ship that suited my playstyle. I just felt like none of the ships really spoke to my playstyle. I tend to be a pirate. But all of that changed when i tried out a "prv Military Commander". I was given an Aska, a wolf variant designed to be sneaky, and a potato that focused on disabling ships.

The Shadow in the Warp is a stock Aska fit with 3 Studsare Anti Armor shells that will hit a shield and bounce off of it sometimes hitting other people, friend or foe alike. I fit a bunch of cheap point defense on it and put in Missles. Doesn't matter what kind as long as they have some guidance. I tank it like crazy. Studsares are cheap to fit and low flux cost for a cruiser so you can just be firing all day with them without a care.

The first indication I even exist will be the missiles flying towards you from the edge of your view. Then you will see a giant purple gorilla slowly ploding towards you. Then it will teleport in front of you, squaring off and firing Anti-Armor rounds into your shield like an idiot. Then the missiles hit you. Forgot about them. Then you suddenly realize all your support has peeled off because the rounds are flying off your shield and smacking them at weird angles. Anyone near you is going to be hurting. Its just you and the purple ape. And then its behind you. Firing into your engines. As you spin out of control and your crew struggles to get the engines back online a ship drops out of cloak near you like a purple potato and drops an ion field which you drift through. The purple gorilla relentlessly mauls you until you explode.

Thank you for making the Aska. When i was first learning to use it I died alot to over confidence and bad fitting descions. It is an amazing ship.

Is there any way to easily find out about where the Ruster base is when they're raiding your system, like the pirate in the bar? Haven't found any so far.

Yeah, known issue, I'm not sure what's causing it. I'll see if I can fix it for v19.

Loading the save it creates just before the crash should work as a workaround in the meantime.

Is there any way to easily find out about where the Ruster base is when they're raiding your system, like the pirate in the bar? Haven't found any so far.

I don't think so, but almost all functionality related to those bases comes from Vayra's Mod, so aim your feedback that way. I will be adding a feature that makes Rusters less likely to create bases though; if they are at not peace with (almost) everyone, they will focus on their wars instead of creating new bases.

DOWNLOAD

v19

NOT SAVEGAME COMPATIBLE

Added the Rök Battlecruiser
- Combining solid armor with a gravitic shield and wide-arc gun turrets, this battlecruiser is happiest in the thick of battle. Be careful not to overtax its generator though.
- The Rusters may have also gotten their grubby fingers on a few speciments. Or parts of them, at least.

Added the Is Light Cruiser
- Equipped with a device that can momentarily freeze a target in time, this sleek cruiser is designed to work with other fast craft to hunt and destroy capital ships.

Added the Shrike (prv)
- Featuring a ramshield and ballistic hardpoint the prv knockoff of the Shrike has much to recommend it, but these features come at the cost of a severely limited OP count.

Added the Karbid Assault Fighter
- Attacks the target with a giant spinning blade.
- Not a manhack.

Added the Berguv Torpedo
- Fires unguided torpedoes with proximity fuzes which detonate and leave devastating burns on any nearby ships.
- Available as a heavy launcher or a light rack.

Added the Gravpjäs
- This long-ranged cannon attacks the target with immense gravitic blasts, tearing through armor and displacing all but the heaviest ships.

Added the Jursla Graviton Emitter
- Replaces the Jursla cannon and shamelessly retains the name.
- This large kinetic beam guides a steady stream of energy blasts towards the target, heavily pressuring any shield.

Added the Gengångare Reversion Core hullmod
- Rare hullmod that can be acquired at the Laboratory Complex.
- If the equipped ship is disabled or destroyed it will recall all its fighters and create an Integrated Swarm to care for them for the rest of the battle.

I'm not sure how I feel about the colours, I'm that used to them being blue. Maybe subtle trim would've been better. But I'm sure what you've done will grow on me.

I do think the old Flamma was nicer than the new one though.

Everything else is solid and lovely as usual Prav  :)

So, 0.95 plans: while we wait for Graphicslib, which I understand may be a while, I will be ripping out my distortion shaders and put out a barebones interim release ASAP. Some vfx will be completely missing. Stability may take a few hotfixes, hard to be sure when the base game has changed so much.

After that I will put out a more polished version, still with little new content, better integrating the mod into the 0.95 context, weapon stats, faction preferences, some barebones vfx for the missing distorsions, stuff like that. This will take longer.
