How would you equip this ship?
« on: September 20, 2022, 10:20:10 PM »

I recently made my first completely new modship, now I want to fine tune it.
First how does it look like, should I make more?
What system might be matching.
And of cause how to equip it?
The game is more or less vanilla besides the new ship.

It looks like a pather makeshift dreadnought. Well, I've done worse, and of course stick to what you like and have fun
if you are wondering what system to give to a ship, ammo feed and burn drive is always on the menu. The weapon mounts are a bit out of order, tho, you might want to ignore the small energy slots. The ship does not have a flux status to support any conventional battery and is missile heavy, so I would install an ECCM mod and focus on missiles

Frankly, it's a bit weak without any large mounts.  Fundamentally outranged by any capital ship that comes its way, but the fighter bays might mitigate that.

Also, I can't see weapon arcs.

Anyhow, a system worth trying is Damper Field.  It's a good way for a ship to dump flux during combat.

Otherwise, good work on chopping up existing stuff.  You fit them together pretty well.

Lore: It should be an old construction ship for building space installations refit by the indies to defend their planets.

How about the midline or low tech starfortress mine layer system?
How much DP should it cost?

I think I found the right system: terminator mining drones, at least my java knowledge is much better than my artistic talent.
