SpardaSon21 Jul 21 2012, 11:46pm replied:

You're welcome.

You're still going to have to decide what to do about inter-star phase jumps since DropShips definitely can't do that, and that's controlled by a research boolean, so either it isn't researched and no ships can jump or it is researched and all ships can jump. There's no middle ground. First thing that came to my mind is a completely ******** research about tiny K-F engines hotloaded from fusion reactors that allow DropShips to do K-F jumps, but like I said that's a ******** research with no grounding in BT science so you probably want something better.

+2 votes   mod: Sins of the Inner Sphere
SpardaSon21 Jul 21 2012, 10:13pm says:

One thing you guys might want to think about with regards to K-F jumps and scale is that most Sins maps only take place in a single solar system. It may be an extremely crowded solar system, but all the celestial objects in your average Sins map are in the orbit of the same, single star, and your average DropShip doesn't have issues with interplanetary transits.

Oh, and I'm definitely tracking this.

If you can't fit the two gunners, commander, armor, weapons, and autoloaders for the weapon systems into the turret, you need to make it bigger.

I don't think you can actually remove buffs from ships. You can add additional buffs but you can't actually remove them using another ability. What I would do is have weapons fire on ships do temporary, stacking debuffs to ship stats but have them go away after a while to represent the crews re-routing systems around damaged sections of the vessel and effecting temporary repairs to damaged systems.

I prefer the armor plating idea, but you'll have to be careful with naming since UI information is global, so unless you're doing a total conversion the Vasari, Advent, and TEC will all start using C-bills and armor instead of credits and shields if you don't take care with modifying English.str.

You should consider moving to Rebellion when it is finally released since Rebellion bumped the weapon limit for ships and structures from three to five, plus there are some additional WeaponClassTypes added such as Flak, Railgun, PointDefenseLaser, PulseWave, and PhaseCannon that you can re-name to get the desired effect. Having an extra two weapons per ship would give you a little more leeway when it comes to proper loadouts, especially since fighters can now have two primaries and three secondaries.

A little word of warning: shielding grants an always-active damage reduction, over 60% when focus-fired upon by a fleet and 15% when under light fire, so ships without shields need a ton of armor and HP in order to have equivalent survivability when under heavy fire.

Also, since the DMO appears to have a lot of special buffs, you're going to have to write a lot of abilities, and you may run into the 5-ability-per-ship limit a few times.

Vader111, there was a recent re-release of Blue Planet 2 with optimized ships. You should probably check that out, especially since Blue Planet is a greatly superior mod to Dawn of Sol.

Also, there's no way fleets in this mod should be a large as fleets in stock Sins (if fleets have 25 Deimos corvettes and 40 Fenris and Leviathan cruisers in them something is wrong), so you can get away with higher poly counts than if you were using standard Sins-sized fleets.
