[0.97a] There Be Juggernauts 0.2-RC1
« on: May 01, 2022, 10:32:44 AM »

There Be Juggernauts Ship Pack

Download Here: RAR / ZIP

Version 0.1.1a: RAR / ZIP


Requirements:
      No other mods, but your sanity.

Featured:
      Just some silly ships that aren't easily acceptable in the current game or at least makes the experience more terrible to the unfortunate users.
      Oh, and expected vanilla factions will get them.


PAQs, Probably Asked Questions:
Spoiler
  •    Why did you make this mod?
   There are some leftover ships from Blue that could use its own entry that didn't need a faction to support it.

  •    Why are these ships so big?
   Because they're big.

  •    Where do they spawn? When do I get to see them in-game? Are they rare?
   If you see something bigger than life in there, you'll know its there. Hopefully.

  •    Is this mod safe?
   I dunno.

  •    If there's that one ship from Blue, while there's also this one, what's gonna happened to it?
   I'm considering to remove that ship completely from Blue while retaining its original name. It's going to be headache to work on a script or whatever trying to remove it while in midgame.

  •    Is this ship pack balanced?
   Shhhhh...

  •    Will there be any more ships in the future?
   I'll threaten you with an update when it's ready.

Do the Overslaught have 4 fighter bay? That seam a like a lot if the Armani is to have 6 bay.
And maybe renaming the Overslaught by "impetus", "onfall", "onrush" or something. The name seem a bit to on the nose to me.
But otherwise great sprite and I'll be happy to see more in the future.

Agreed with the naming suggestion, love the work on this mod very seamlessly vanilla (even with the fluff) and feels like having minibosses

If I might suggest the Hek should be balanced by :
+ Add an extra hangar bay making it to 4 (since it's in the sprite anyways)
+ More cargo/fuel capacity (since it's a bit small compared to its size)

- Lower the burn speed to 5 (since you're literally dragging a planet, and from my experience a pirate raiding fleet containing Hek ravaged the whole Askonia system and tore through numerous trade convoys, it'd probably better utilized as a defense or siege role imo)  ;D

Just change the Json File of missing ships to 0.96 and Use the mod. I use it and it works just fine, even removed the mjolnirs from the Nagato.

Great mod.  If you are still working on this mod, would it be possible to add ship that could be part of XIV Battlegroup fleet.

I like those ships, however it looks like pirate armadas all have this planetoid ship with them, which doesn't make them feel rare or unique at all.

Pirate fleets are extremely hard to balance when you start installing mods... they have such an insane spawn pool since almost every mod adds a ship to their available list
