Not quite sure what you mean by that. The Eclipse is not and won't ever be in the mod since three titans for one faction would be excessive, and between it and the Sovereign the sovereign has tradeoffs compared to the Executor (lower weapon strength but superlaser/abilities) where the Eclipse is just Executor plus superlaser, and the Eclipse was a unique flagship. By its younger brother I'm assuming you mean the Sovereign, which is already in and in roughly the same place balance-wise as everything else.

Everything is to scale. And no, we rarely if ever experience graphic-related lag, regardless of settings. The only times we've had any lag issues personally have been CPU-related when playing with 9 players on 3-4 different factions with about 150 planets (yay single-threaded stuff). I stress the "personally" bit, since we can't promise people with lower specs that they'll have the same experience, although I myself use a pretty middle-of-the-road laptop.

.Corey. Jul 9 2014, 4:18pm replied:

Functionally they're just like the playable factions in every way, except they aren't pickable and have smaller unit lists.

Currently the way it works is there are certain maps where, if the last slot is filled in the player selection, that AI will become the Hapans/Ssi-Ruu. So, you can choose to disable them or enable them. It also means if you were to play that map in multiplayer and you have more people than the map was "intended" for, the last person gets to lose. And also play as an NPF.

It'll be explained better ingame, but if it ends up being too confusing we may end up just putting them as selectable so people can have as many of them, wherever they want, just with the caveat that we're not balancing or filling them the same way as we are for the others so if they choose to play as them they're gonna have a harder time.

We have a system planned to both accurately reflect the number of fighters a ship would have while still reducing the amount ingame at any one time. I don't want to go into it too much right now, since nothing's finalized and we may have to alter the plan quite a bit.

I can say with extreme confidence that early betas will have a lot of balance and performance issues, but one of the primary reasons we're making this mod is because we really want to play multiplayer against each other so we're going to do our best to make sure they get ironed out in the best way possible.

There are a significant amount of other defenses on this, don't worry. It's closer to a Golan II than a Golan III if you leave out the turrets (maybe a little less) but honestly if you leave out the turrets when considering this, you're putting yourself in a losing situation.

The cannons are not quite on the scale of the Hypervelocity Cannon with each individual shot. There are definitely some power tradeoffs with having this type of weapon versus the planetary weapons. On the one hand, you can't necessarily hit one target with the same single target up-front damage, but on the other you can have more than one of these, and the damage can be better distributed; there isn't the same bad feeling you'd get from wasting the cooldown on an HV gun on finishing off a ship with a few hardpoints, or even just using it to wipe out a corvette.

Those stats are, as far as I'm aware, just from some wiki used for a roleplaying game. They're fanon.

Also, what's the Inquisitor?

The Assertor looks like it's essentially a worse version of the Sovereign or Eclipse, both of which are far more canonically relevant to what we're covering. Again, neither of these fill a space that's actually needed to be filled, it'd just be pointlessly plugging in units because they're there. They'd serve no new purpose but filling up space, the IR has all the superships they need.

+9 votes   media: V-19 Ingame
.Corey. Dec 22 2012, 8:08pm replied:

No. Neither has actual armament information beyond size, and their roles are already filled by the Praetor and SSDs as far as just "really big ships with lots of weapons". The Assertor is only a little bit shorter than the Executor, so I don't imagine there's any substantive differences between it, and the Bellator would be the same sort of idea, only half the size. Neither really adds anything though, there's no point adding something else between the Praetor and the SSD since there's no enemy ships between those sizes either. The Praetor itself was mostly just added to fill that gap between the ISD and the SSD, so continuing down that road with ships that do the same thing without actually knowing exact stats would add nothing to gameplay, and just waste a lot of development time and crowd the build bar.

I keep seeing mods that try to spam as many gigantic ships as possible, and it seems like a waste of time to me. There's like a 2 second window where people would say "oh superships yay" but after that you have to deal with EaW's ****** pathfinding and the fact that you've now made a faction really top heavy with irrelevant units.

All of our units are properly scaled against each other. The Executor is 19,000 meters, the ISD will be 1600. Before we started putting units ingame we figured out the exact measurements in XSI units for each unit to be scaled properly without making anything too big or too small. In general our units are a bit smaller than the typical Sins ones, however since there won't be any Sins content to match it against that won't be especially noticable. Once we have more Imperial content in we'll have more screenshots whcih should give a better sense of it.

If it's grey'd out, that usually means you have a faction selected which isn't available in that GC. The playable factions for each GC are listed in the description box. The Duskhan League and Pentastar Alignment aren't playable for that one.

As for more planets, we used as many as we felt comfortable with without essentially guaranteeing FoC's freeze bug would occur. The larger the GC, the longer it takes and the more stuf gets destroyed, which makes the control freeze occur earlier. In a GC where every planet's going to change hands multiple times, this means we can't have as many planets.

The Ascendancy, size-wise, isn't meant to be the same as the Imperial Star Destroyer.

We intend to do the first release as an open beta, since it's the first time the mod will have as many people playing in as many different ways, so it's a good way to iron everything out. However, we have no intention to release any sort of demo since that would distract from working on the full mod.

Considering how common this question is, I may or may not do a small dev diary thing about it in the near future.

We're not working on 2.2 until sometime after we release the first version of Ascendancy.

You can't give units build limits in Sins, and the game is hardcoded to only allow you to build one SSD at a time. We've considered using alternate means to allow more than one at a time, but we'd have to make sure it's balanced first, and wouldn't turn into the Imperial players being able to have essentially nothing but SSDs.

Currently its just the Sins method; we don't see the utility in doing it the other ways.

Usually its just that we're more sure of what direction we want to take something, and then that faction becomes a general testing ground.

Normally that's the attitude we take. However, over the space of a few days we got about 15 comments saying the same thing between ModDB and even in the youtube comments on the trailer. I've even been getting emails about it lately.

This way, the majority of you who have been very patient and supportive get a chance to see exactly where we are in development and the high-tech way in which I manage the team, while I also get a standard copy-pasta I can just take onto any further comments. Everyone wins!

If the base (meaning unmodded) game doesn't run, there's nothing we can do for you, sorry. That error code usually has to do with the game itself from what I can find by googling it. You'd need to ask either steam or Petroglyph support

Thanks, we appreciate it.

We have no plans to add either the Vigil or the Victory II Frigate (of course, the Victory II Star Destroyer is in). They don't serve any purpose that isn't already filled better and more recognizably by another ship. Also, we don't want to use more memory than we have to since Sins has memory limitations and build bar space isn't unlimited. We'd much rather use that memory space to add stuff to the Hapans and Ssi-Ruuvi than add redundant ships.

We've been pretty much able to put in everything we want to. The only stuff that we'd like to put in but won't make it is stuff that's just been scheduled for later releases because of time constraints, so we're pretty happy.

Any fleet moving in formation (as these were) both in game and in universe would make sure to coordinate movements. Its not like any of it is independent traffic.

I don't believe so. I just used the title Jinz had it under though since he's the one who took the shot so I'd have to ask him to know if its from anything.

No, there aren't hero units except in the flagship victory mode, and a free SSD would be too much.

Eventually, yeah. We're focusing on the more core aspects still, so that'll either be done very late in 1.0, or even something we hold off on until 1.1.

That is very dependent on the era. In earlier eras, the New Republic (there are no Rebels in the mod) are far more reliant on their fighters and fighter carriers than capital ships. While the MC80B is able to stand up to an ISD, it's more as a tank and used to kill anti-fighter ships while fighters deal damage. In the later eras, the New Republic ships are pretty much the best in the game, and the Imperials have to rely on greater numbers.

Each faction has its own strengths and weaknesses, and those vary based on the timeframe. If you try to play ever faction the same way and expect the same strengths and weaknesses, it won't go super well.

We can't change that stuff without also changing how it works in GC, and GC is a higher priority; pretty much all AI changes in EaW except income rates and multipliers are completely disregarded by the game.
