7 comments by Burntstrobe on Sep 23rd, 2014

So, we have lots of projects in the works. We have collaborated with some of the most talented minds in this community and all our coding projects have been solved theoretically. We are not approaching an implementation and testing phase, but we need some help from anyone out there who is XML savy.
We know exactly what we need to have done, but we have a lot to do. If anyone out there is familiar with XML coding and is just sitting around, come join us. Any assistance helps us finish faster.

I have an idea for the mod. You're making fleets for the minor factions that aren't playable and space stations to go with them. Do you think you could have each of the factions able to be chosen for Space Skirmish, sort of like what Corporate Addon Mod has? Corellia, Mandalorians, Mon Calamari, etc, and then the Alliance can have its ships with its usual mix of Imperial Remnant and other ships from different factions. Just a thought, because it would be so cool to have a fleet of Mon Calamari ships going against Corellia's in a Skirmish.

Media.moddb.com Inspiration came from this picture and memory of your Mon Cal fighters.

We have thought of this also, but completing the Galactic Conquest is the main priority ;)

The thing that confuses me is star wars scaling...for example the nebulon is 300 mmeters yet can carry 24 fighters in l=two very tiny hangars. I think FOC made it worse for me when seeing a small nebulon in comparison with giant star fighters

We are taking painstaking efforts to create a realistic and believable scale for all ships. We are using the schematics from wookipedia for our reference sources, and adjusting some things to make things more believable.

The Nebulon B for example, carried its fighter on external mounting racks where pilots could enter cockpits via docking tubes. The Nebulon B, for the Vong mod, will carry no fighters, for the fighter docking tubes were mainly designed for use with TIE fighters, not X-wings which are of a larger size. This is an example of how we are adjusting facts for the sake of realism.

I applaud this mod for trying to make it realistic cause clearly stats need to be changed when a 700 meter Defender assault carrier can only carry 3 squadrons while the Majestic heavy cruiser built on the same frame can carry 5 squadrons. Not sure what they were thinking there.

Your example is a bit strange, since although two ships in the New Class Modernisation Program may share the same hull, their internal designs may be different. But your point stands, there are some pretty strange ship stats out there

Keep in mind that the Nimitz-class carriers are also 300 meters long, but can carry many more fighters

I mean they carry them on the outside of the ship. Nebulons some how have enough magical internal space to fit 24 12-16 meter fighters.

Nimitz. Most of the fighters are stored on the inside, and I'm pretty sure they have enough space to have all of the planes below deck.

An X-Wing has what, a 9 meter wingspan and is 12.5 meters in length? Arranged in a 6X4 formation with a meter between wingtips, the room holding the fighters would be 81X40 meters. Which could fit in the front superstructure of the Nebulon B. Divide that up into hangers and it's not too ridiculous.
