This article is the follow-up to the one I posted a few weeks ago, and is replete with a great deal of info about things I mentioned previously. The first topic is the structures that I added to GC mode. These structures will become vital as you expand your forces. Each one offers an enticing advantage, but often at a hefty price.

Commercial Trade-Port
11/28/13 Update

Although already a feature in the mod, the trade-port is receiving a new model and reduction in armament. Because it is a civilian structure, it only has 1 quad turbolaser battery. Like in the past it allows access to many merchant vessels, including the YT-1300, YT-2400, YZ-2500, Action IX Transport, and Gladius Light Freighter. This trade port can be built at most worlds that have sizable populations and trade connections, and it generates a slight income from taxes collected on all trade.

Gas Extractor
11/28/13 Update

The gas extractor is self-explanatory. These structures extract and refine gas into finished products to be used as fuel in everything from weapons and thrusters, to reactors and hyperdrives. These facilities are very vulnerable but have light shielding, and must be well protected due to the highly volatile nature of the gasses. They provide a substantial amount of income, and also a slight population boost because of its additional fleet support capabilities. These structures can only be built in the atmosphere of a gas giant or in the middle of a nebula. Once built, you will be provided with access to the Hex-type Gas Transport and the AG5 Bulk Gas Transport. Although they are very expensive to build they are a worthy investment.

Orbital Hydroponics Facility
11/28/13 Update

Going in a different direction, this structure's purpose is not economic, but rather it a support network for local forces. These structures are most commonly found in orbit of agriworlds, planets that are entirely dedicated to agricultural development. They contain pods where various plants are grown to be consumed by military forces. As such, these structures provide a considerable boost in your galactic population cap by having food directly sent to local orbiting forces. These structures have no shields or weapons, so they require much protection. They can be constructed above worlds with high agricultural significance only.

Supplementary Drydock
11/28/13 Update

For a hefty price, this structure provides a boost to your starship production above worlds that already have major shipyards. In the midst of combat they also provide some repairs to friendly forces. These shipyards slightly reduce the build time for all corvettes, frigates, and capital ships at the location. They are moderately shielded but should still be protected, as they have no weapons. Additionally, a moderate population boost is provided because of its ability to help sustain fleets.

Next up are some new units I hinted at, namely carriers. Both the Alliance and Empire have one each (note that the Alliance already has the Emancipator Heavy Carrier in addition to the new one).

Conquest-class Imperial Carrier
11/28/13 Update

Armament: 6 heavy turbolaser turrets, 3 point-defense laser batteries, 2 proton torpedo launchers Complement: 8 Predator-class Starfighter, 6 Neutralizer-class Bomber, 4 Fury-class Fighter, 3 Reaper-class Assault Fighter and 3 Blitz-class Assault Bomber squadrons (24 squadrons total)

The Conquest-class is the main carrier for the Krayt Empire, in a combined effort by Kuat Drive Yards and Sienar Fleet Systems. It is a mid-sized capital ship, measuring 1,200 meters, between the size of an Ardent Frigate and a Pellaeon Star Destroyer. The carrier is modestly armed with multiple heavy turbolasers and medium torpedo launchers, and a handful of point-defense cannons to ward off fighters. It should be noted that while capable of holding its ground against corvettes and a couple frigates, it is not designed to go head-to-head with a warship such as the Scythe Battlecruiser, or an armada of frigates. Despite this, its shields are considerably powerful, with average armor and sub-light speed. The Conquest-class comes equipped with a class 0.85 hyperdrive; combined with its impressive 24 squadron-capacity, the Conquest makes for a vessel capable of commanding an invasion fleet-just make sure you guard it carefully.

Watchman-class Fleet Carrier (Types I & II) 11/28/13 Update

Armament: 8 heavy laser cannons, 2 medium turbolaser batteries, 2 concussion missile launchers
Complement: (Type I) 5 CF9 Crossfire and 5 BB-2 Starfire squadrons (10 squadrons total); (Type II) 4 X-83 TwinTail, 2 BB-2 Starfire, 2 I4 Ionizer Starfighter, and 2 RC-2 Twilight Scoutship squadrons (10 squadrons total)

The Watchman is the GA Remnant's answer to the ever-increasing need to provide a mobile base for its fighter-depended fleets, designed by defectors from numerous galactic manufactures . At 500 meters long, it is slightly larger than a ShaShore Frigate. It comes equipped with a class 0.75 hyperdrive, matching the FTL capability of a Scythe Battlecruiser. Despite this, it is considerably slow in sub-light speeds, due mostly to its heavy armor. The multiple heavy lasers can accurately target fighters but are powerful enough to defend against other similarly sized vessels when supplemented by its turbolaser and missile batteries. The larger hangars and hyperdrive system have lead to reduced reactor size, and as such the ship's shields are not very robust. The Watchman comes in two variants: Type I offers the standard fighters, while Type II holds the more advanced (and more expensive) ones. Each kind has different advantages, and while relatively robust, should be escorted into battle as part of an armada.

That concludes all the new content for this update. By the middle of December I will post again, with information regarding the remaining structures for Galactic Conquest, as well as the aforementioned repair ships. I will also try to get a video of gameplay if I have time, because videos are more fun than pictures. So, that's basically it for now. And remember what I said last time, don't ask for a release date. Just don't.

I AM SORRY ON FIRST AND THIS SECOND BIG POST

I am forgot you can in final mod put more planetary fleets:
Bothawui - Bothan Assault Cruiser (buildable for alliance and confederation)
Kuat - mandator I, mandator II (buildable for all)
Corelia - that your ships and I would put and Strident Star Defender (buildable for all)
Geonozis - geonozis cruiser (buildable for alliance and confederation)

THET PLANETARY FLEETS CAN BE INTERESTING IN GAME (for me the most interresting fleet is droid fleet because they are cheap, medium stong and large) SO BECAUSE YOU LOOKING FORSHIPS FOR CONFEDERATE
AND I CAN ASK WHERE IS DISSAPEAR ONE OF MOST STRONGEST AND BIGGEST ARMY AND FLEET (I THINK ON DROID ARMY AND FLEET)
YES THEY ARE STUPID AND WEAK BUT THEY CAN BE FAST BUILDABLE, CHEAP AND CAN BUILD IN LARGE NUMBER SO THEY ARE IN THE END STRONG FLEET

Adding in more planetary fleets does not fit in with the intentions of the mod, since it's more time consuming and not something I wish to do. But thanks for the suggestions.

I am found five bug in your mod:
1. Aggressor star destroyer (consortium)- his super canon dont always fire on comand (90%), when you comand to attack someone he start to circle and in two circle he fire one time from canon
2. Puissance heavy destroyer (corelia) same as aggressor star destroyer
3. in skirmish AI consotium dont build all ships, AI build ships only from official game (crusaider corvete, aggressor destroyer, keldable battleship....)
4. allmost same in GC AI buld in large number (crimson axe) other in small number
5. I think that consortium ships not to much accurate or maybe they do little damage
