I have to agree on the requested WINGCOMM changes, especially later-game when your carrier group starts stacking up range bonuses, it ends up your escort carriers hide behind your capital ships and their wings become glorified point defense outside of bombers, who are now robbed of their valuable fighter screen.

Though vanilla bombers default engagement range is already pretty low (~4,000 units) so tack on the wingcomm and a dedicated targeting core and they practically never go out of your main battery ranges. It makes dealing with kiting frigates an absolute pain in the backside.

Then again, I guess that's what frigate-version Einhanders, Cataphracts and your own Frigates are there for.

If it was more like a -50/-40/-30/-20/ penalty to engagement range it'd be a lot more palatable... Or, you know, tune the penalty to decrease fighter recovery speed instead.

Also while I'm nitpicking, is there any particular reason for the module itself being so heavy on ordinance points? (-30 on a Capital) It makes tuning an actual carrier kinda hard as you have to start picking between adequate weapons, high tier fighters, or a WINGCOMM, and that's after you fine tune your flux and build in your expanded deck crews and dedicated targeting core.

How do you get rid of the Sleeping Ahab Reactor D-mod on the Valkazard? The mech says its a cataphract 2 from arma armatura (sleepers) but the dmod says its from Iron Blood Orphans so I am not sure where it comes from and I cant find any information on how to get rid of it.

I think this may be a question for the Iron Blooded Orphans Mod Page. I certainly haven't seen any of these D-Mods in my time using Arma Armatura.

Yea I have the IBO gundam mod. In the end I got the character skill that rando removes d mods and it removed it so while im still not sure how you are legit supposed to get rid of it that workaround works for me.

I had a crash soon after ordering an einhander to retreat.

I can see how that crash would happen with the Einhander(s), looks like it doesnt occur with my fix in dev now :)

I should have a bugfix out in the next few days, which should address that issue + the CTD that occurs when trying to view squadrons sometimes (thanks to Nia to pointing me in the right direction on that one)

RE: the wingcom suggestions, i'll follow up on that in a bit
