 Imo the fusion buster group of weapons don't match the faction whatsoever and seem lackluster/useless with the limited testing ive done with them

The Thap missile family need a bit longer range and for the AI to treat them like salamanders and fire them on CD while dropping their damage and upping the EMP might be better overall

The Pereskia is too much OP for what it does while the limited hangar space means it isnt as viable imo also the helianthus needs a bit more to be worth the OP so i would put a thap on it to help it disengage after a bombing run (use after it fires its full barrage so the flares only help it run away / other bombing runs

I would love to see cruiser or bigger size cargo/fuel ships in the factions theme as I love the look overall

The Galvanic family of weapons are super interesting if you have a line ship to shoot over while they hold the enemy back but the faction doesn't really have that imo

love the idea of a drone focused faction that doesn't just use them to swarm but support each ship for their role in the battle

Overall love the faction and great work making them.

don't take my minor critiques as me not liking the faction and i still haven't done full playtesting with everything in large battles yet either

Going to have a look at the Fusion Buster and Thap (and by extension Pereskia) weapon groups, they might be getting some changes, though some improvements to flare deployment angle of the Thap on-hit script are definitely in the pipeline for one thing.

also the helianthus needs a bit more to be worth the OP so i would put a thap on it to help it disengage after a bombing run (use after it fires its full barrage so the flares only help it run away / other bombing runs

The Helianthus is fine where it is. Buffs would make it rather OP imo. My reasoning:
It's pretty fast for a bomber, and has long launch range (1200) this combined makes them decently survivable in my experience.
One wing deals 4800 Energy damage across the whole salvo, this is more damage to shields than a longbow wing does per-strike, and they also perform very well against light to medium armour.
They can hit small/moving targets quite reliably thanks to guided munitions.

But thanks for the feedback, update is coming Soon™

The more I look at and use Kyeltziv ships the more I like them. Vanilla friendly but immediately recognizable, good faction identity both in looks gameplay, and matching design elements across all major ships. The overall hull shapes with the single vertical drone bay behind the bridge reminds me of modern frigates with helipads, very "ship-like".
One small gripe I have is with the Bystro. The fighter bay area that takes a whole front corner of the hull makes the ship feel very fragile in a way, more so than other carriers. I have no good idea on how it should be changed though, as adding some "hull" connecting to the tip of the corner might break the intended silhouette for the ship and make it less "special" looking.

Busters are meant as "low penetration high DPS" and with the changes in this patch, they should be more worthwhile options to pick.
On a per-shot basis they are not the best option for their mount size, but launch a decently sized burst of shots which can strip light armour very effectively but start to fall off in effectiveness against tougher armour.

Good to see the shield wideness got a tiny bit buffed, seemed like the ships were barely being covered previously. Thanks!

This sounds like an issue with your anti-virus tbh, no idea why my mod would set off a trojan alert.

Those phase ships look awesome. Was wondering what KT phase was gonna look like and the "belt" phase coil took me by surprise, very cool.
