the strengths of the Mon Calmari Fleet lie in its durability and power-projection.
the MC80 Liberty is said to be the rough equivalent of an Imperial-1, yet carries less firepower and fewer fighters.
Mon Remonda led a task force in the fight against Iron Fist (at the time, the 8km figure was used for Iron Fist, so stick with that for the moment), an Executor-class Star Dreadnought, and went toe-to-toe with her on several occasions.
a good rule of thumb, for me at least, when dealing with Mon Cal ships is that their shields are of the next sized-up class for smaller craft, so a corvette would have the shields of a light frigate, etc, and larger craft are going to probably be significantly stronger.
in the case of the Liberty, figure an ISD-1+50% to an ISD-2 in terms of shielding. i cant remember the exact figures off the top of my head, sorry.

for power projection. yes, many of the Mon-Cal ships have a smaller compliment of fighters than their counterparts, but their fighters are typically better (comparison to the Imperial TIE series).

ill make this a brief comparison

with a few exceptions, the fighters of the Rebel Alliance/New Republic/Galactic Alliance can match or outclass their Imperial counterparts because of shielding, the ability to carry heavy ordnance, individual traits, the skill of the pilots, and with the exception of the Defender-class Fighter as well as the K-wing, their ability to use Hyperdrives, so less time can be spent launching or recovering fighters
the only grey areas are those dealing with the E-wing, K-wing, Scimitar Assault Bomber, TIE Avenger, TIE Defender, Assault Gunboat, Missile Boat, and Defender class Fighter.

one could argue that the Scimitar and the K-wing can be compared, but thats about it

Well the main way is building them separately. I usually tend(For raid fleets or fleets to attack smaller systems) to have a tonne of Bombers. They're also useful against SSDs. You use the bombers to take out its shields protected by fighters. Then you jump your ships in behind the SSD and bam. Done and dusted.

Burntstrobe Jun 7 2013, 6:37am replied:

The mediator and viscount were made specifically for the New Republic, and therefore show some humanistic building traits such as "block superstructure construction". The little rows of squares you may have noticed are anti-ship missile launchers.

All MC ships were made specifically to accommodate the Mon Cal physiology. The only exception is the MC80B Allegiant (made at kuat) which was designed for a human crew, and therefore displays more humanistic design principles, most notably the bow extension that mimics the Nebulon B.

In short, humans like angles and squares, fish people like bubbles ;)

That's no problem I've played a mod with very large amount of buildable units and they solved it by adding a menu of types of units on the side of build bar; for example: if you want to build a frigate, you click on frigates and all buildable frigates are shown in the build bar.
A slider is a good option too, but I think it's the harder way.

that picture kind of gives you a perspective on just how big the biggest ships are compared to the small ones, and consider that at this point even a corvette is many times bigger than one of our own carriers. yeah, these ships are huge.

so maybe there was a bit of hyperbole in my comment, still. that leaves the corvette at much bigger than one of our own corvettes would be. up there with destroyers and such. and still only a fraction of the size of the largest vessels.

if they scale the fighters up 5 times they'll be perfectly visible. If they roll with canon, not so much. Well alteast you can save thousands of polys on that then.

Septimundo Jun 8 2013, 3:56am says:

It's kinda sad that canon from books only goes so far ship related. How it usually mentions ship designs and doesn't go into much detail and usually leaves a lot of ships out. So its nice to see that with the Mon Cal you're filling in all the gaps. Here's hopping they'll home true and have the strongest shields possible. xD

this is not a slight against the Viscount in either the SWEU, or in your mod, but i would rather use the smaller craft. its the game engine. ive used Executors in vanilla, Phoenix Rising, and Thrawn's Revenge. it just isnt really worth it to me to use. the main issue is their maneuverability which mostly stems from their size.
again, i like the craft, and you have it made beautifully, but i find that my play style works better with a small fleet of smaller ships.

Septimundo Jun 9 2013, 11:36am replied:

Viscounts are so much better than the Executor. The executor has the same flaw as most Imperial designs. Its for orbital bombardment, intimidation and when it comes to space side on or full on assaults. You get behind that sucker, and its yours. Always used to use it on Thrawns revenge as the New Republic.

The Viscount has a much wider arc of weaponry so you can't really sneak up on it so it is so much better.
