[0.95a] MHP - Midline ships focusing on Hardpoints
« on: June 01, 2021, 01:30:07 PM »

This mod (currently) features 4 Frigates and 3 Destroyers build around front-facing hardpoints.
All of the Ships are Armour based, have very ineficient shields and primarily ballistic weaponslots.
The sprites are (mostly) kit-bashed from vanilla sprites.

The Ships:
Spoiler
Frigates:



Destroyers:



Pirate skins:

[close]

All the ships can be build if the appropriate blueprint package is found and they have small chances to spawn in Independent, Syndrian and Persian fleets.
This mod adds a mission to test the ships before including the mod in your current game.

I plan to add larger ships with different shapes than triangles and also some (Luddic Path & Pirate) Skins.

Isn't heavy armor focus lowtech?

Technically yes, however, low tech also tends to have poor flux stats low speed low maneuverability and a LOT of weapons (and generally extra space for missiles too, in many cases)

These ships seem to focus on hard points and speed and maneuverability, with a balance between ballistics and missiles: all hallmarks of midline.
