New Jane-class tanker brings drone carrier capability at an affordable price! Seen here in an attack variant with the Tracker Swap hullmod installed:



This ship will replace the Dram (R) and Phaeton (R). The superfluous Buffalo (R) is also getting cut and the last (R) skin, the Roider Colossus, is getting a shiny new name: the Ogrov torpedo cruiser!

Any plans to give the Roiders a ship with ore/fuel processing capabilities, or their own superfreighter? Playing as Roiders I find it challenging to find Atlases in the field, and just end up running a big swarm of vanilla Collossi. (I know their focus is refits, but something purchaseable there would be really nice.)

Some kind of fleet-level carrier would also be nice. (Maybe a converted Prometheus? Lots of empty internal space, right?)

well refits are for combat, it would make sense that bunch of ore mining corps would commission own design for ore haulers, since asteroid mining would have slightly different needs than commercial transport.

New ship looks nice, Buffalo and tankers (R) are really not needed that much - Hegemony Auxilary versions already filled the niche in vanilla/other mods. Though it might be interesting to have ships with functions resembling Nijigen Extend Forge ships. Maybe a Buffallo could be turned into a modular mobile factory? Which could be adjusted with hullmods to produce supplies or fuel from raw materials salvaged. The other alternative for Buffalo conversion is a more robust version of Salvage Rig - unlike rig it would have a decent cargo storage and crew capacity, maybe Surveying Equipment too. Basically a designated destroyer sized explorer/salvager.

on my actual run, i'm playing roider (+ full industrial path + a bit blue tech tree)
smelter/forge ship would be nice

are any of the roider ships capable of farming ordos? maybe the one with timeshell +hmg?
I have a lot of other faction ships, all selffound, like Dun Scaith and Traumtanzer, but even small ordos are problematic

@SafariJohn
Have you seen the recently new mod "The Junk Yard Dogs" V0.4?
It seems to have story similarities to the Roiders. Any thoughts about it? I would be neat to have synergy between Roiders and the JYD active ability.

Anything with MIDAS on it is basically a Roider ship.

The Ranch already spams fighters out the wazoo. 4 decks + Reserve Deployment is a lot, even with half drones and RD getting nerfed.

You want to deploy Telamon battleships, probably with heavy carrier support using Duster heavy fighters. Any time you are fighting Remnants you want lots of kinetic damage.

I do not play other mods much. From JYD's page, it looks like Roiders would not trust them or be outright enemies. JYD are friends with TriTachyon; Roiders hate TT. Not to mention competing for mining sites.

I'm sorry to say I'm experiencing unrecoverable freezes since updating to the latest version of Roider Union.
It's the only mod I've updated and everything was going smoothly until I did so I fear this mod must be the culprit.

Can you tell me when it starts freezing? I noticed strange slowdowns when jumping into systems but I couldn't track it down.

The freezes are sudden, it goes from smooth to completely frozen. Last time it happened shortly after buying a new ship from a black market, but the time before that it happened when I approached the jump point out of that system (Ounalashka, from another mod).

I tried playing a bit more, this time after updating my outdated versions of LazyLib and MagicLib, but this time it crashed on save.

Can you post the crash dump from the log? That might have something.
