Questionable incremental update detected  :D

New-anti-capital-fire-support-lightcruiser, hah, can't say that it looks as good the lathe but since i'm running out of parts to rip out from the paragon, this will have to do.
As you noticed, it has a big gun. Though it's fairly unreliable, so best use it at mid ranges,
Carries one landing deck but a hangar size of onl3 ( thinking of nerfing down to 2 just to keep it to corporation standards  ::) )

also added in a scout drone, not that great since it's as effective as green crew, but your not supposed to be depending on it for anything other than sensor data and the occasional capture :P

Since there is no download link (for the new update ATM) I'm just commenting on the data.

To me it seems like 300+ combat movement speed is waaaay OP especially for the ship to have shields AND weapons.  No other ships is that fast which means that nothing will be able to catch up and fight with it.  As it can out run anything (including missiles) plus some pretty dang good shielding the only thing that would probably be able to take that guy out would be a capitol ship with flak cannons (unless the AI just dodges with it's 300+ combat speed).

Again, the above is my theory without being able to play with the ship in game.

As to the rest:

Everything looks cool.  I think that your support ship sprite and your original ship sprite have a different "feel" to them.  The original looks gritty and awesome where as the support sprite looks... too clean/simple?  So far this mod is looking great and I can't wait to see more of what you can come up with!

PS: Please correct me if I am wrong in any of the above.

- Lathe class battle-cruiser -   fleet PC is 22. Isn't it a bit high. It's more then Onslaught (20) and little bit less then paragon (25). I think its a bit too much. And the new cruiser he have 2 small mounts and 1 large, right? If it so it's OP should be 90... Unless you cut it somewhere and added those OP to poll  :D

Blah, I always mess up the download link, and yeh, the support cruiser is exceptionally flat, like kinda b2 bomber flat. This with it being an experimental ship rather than a production ship :P

and note about the 'fighter' I can see that maybe it's bit too hard too kill, but it's not gonna have a dramatic impact in terms of offence since it's only one drone/fighter  PER wing, and I'm not planning on letting you buy swarms of them. Just enough to be able to scout out surroundings and poke destroyers and up.

would love it if someone could help me with adding a station around the sun and/or somehow making the convoy spawn properly :D

I can't help but stare at the ugliness that is my freighter, I'll have to fix it sometime.

I actually like the style and overall shape of it, just needs some more piping and sensor arrays and stuffs (Astral and Atlas ones?)

for the station:

just copy one of the existing stations and where it says getentitybyname replace whatever it is there with Corvus, then adjust the numbers for how far away you want it.

for the convoy:

what trouble are you having?

for the convoy error i think it's something related to a improper destination , prob cause i'm too nub to figure out the sun's id :P
but i'll have to give that all a try.

Fantastic sprite work! I love the look of the freighter.  You can rename your thread to "AWESOME first attempt".

hm,

im not too sure how the convoy is getting its destination, as it appears to not be defined anywhere, but i assume you can do this:

this.convoyDestination = convoyDestination;

change the = convoyDestination; part to

= station name;

with station name being whatever it is you named the station.

EDIT: code for station

SectorEntityToken hegemonyStation = system.addOrbitalStation(system.getEntityByName("Corvus"), 45, 300, 50, "Orbital Station", "hegemony");

this puts it about roughly in the middle of the sun, the 300 is the distance from where it spawns, not too sure what the other numbers do, but one controls how many days it takes to complete an full circle.

I've been trying to follow along Paul's tutorial here http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=1282.0

and I believe that the way he adds a station mid-campaign, is the neatest thing ever :P

but ehh.. the tutorial doesn't cover that part in as much detail as I wanted.

As for the destination code, I currently have it set like
Code
SectorEntityToken convoyDestination = system.getEntityByName("star_yellow");     

Which probably is 9/10 chances wrong.

EDIT: Derp, didn't see your edit :D lemme try that... right now...

Here you are: http://www.mediafire.com/?21gg0dil3636hy4

Added station fixed spawns, fixed convoys.

Right now it spawns max 3 fleets (refreshing every day), spawns 3 fleets at the beginning of the game and the convoy spawns every 5 days or so bringing weapons and Neutrino ships.
