ooh yay hand stuff! but if this is the biggest ship the hand can have, will that mean its their titan? or how will the titan system work for them?

The important thing to remember is that this is a conversion, it isn't Sins. So asking things like "What's their titan?" or "What's their carrier?" really aren't the proper questions to ask. Some factions have one ship that would be a Titan according to Sins scaling and balance (NR), some have more than one (IR), and some won't have any (EotH). There isn't a 1-1 correlation between what Sins factions have and what we're doing. There also isn't a 1-1 correlation between the factions themselves (the NR isn't just a reskinned IR). You're not going to play the New Republic the same way you play the Empire of the Hand, or the Imperial Remnant. So we could say "wouldn't it be cool to give the EotH an SSD?" Sure, maybe it would, but then it wouldn't be the EotH.

Hope this helps clear things up a bit. These kinds of factional differences are something we intend to expound on a lot more in upcoming news posts.

Glad to hear that you guys intend to keep the gameplay between factions unique. It's nice to know that this mod won't be just a "Sins, with Star Wars models" kind of thing- not that I was expecting that from your team.

oh ok, that makes sense. so like in TR all ships will be able to shoot at fighters and whatnot, so there will not be any dedicated anti fighter frigate? just trying to get the image of what you are saying correct.

will that mean then that the SSD for the imperial remnant be built from a capital ship bay instead of the titan thing? trying not to push, just understand. I realize that you may not have planned this yet

The balancing from ICW is actually a pretty decent metric to go off of for individual ship capabilities, with some tweaks for Sins gameplay style (persistent map with tactical battles being on the same level as the galactic). We're still familizarizing ourselves with the engine as well, which may lead to some other changes.

As for the shipyards, that is something staying more Sins than ICW. Since you can see things being constructed, the really large ships (Executor, Viscount, etc) will still have their own level of shipyard. We'll probably also have to make some adjustments for our capital shipyard model as well.

/Votes for Naval Station Validusia to be the Super Capital shipyard (assuming the station can be picked out from the rest of the ships in that EGW artwork)!

Description

If the Ascendancy is the backbone of the Empire of the Hand's navy, then the Phalanx is the fist. At 2000 meters the Phalanx is the largest ship available to the Empire of the Hand and in terms of pure firepower, the most powerful.

We'll be having our first news post to outline the aims of the mod some time in the next few days.
