Hello all,
First and foremost let me thank you all for supporting the mod so far and we look forward to sharing some of our secrets with you soon!! I realise that it has been nearly a year since we actually posted a news update and I for one would like to get back on the horse and use this system to get a bit more information out there, that sometimes gets lost in the comments below. However as you know a lot of work has been going on :D

At the moment we are currently sorting out a major issue with one of our new game concepts which will hopefully be solved within a week. This will then allow us to offer a short sneak preview of some of the work that we have been doing and what you can expect to be doing in the future.

So stay tuned!

Hey guys, I just thought of a cool new thing you could possibly integrate in game (if it's even possible). Have you ever thought of giving units veterancy? So if they survive a battle they might get an upgrade like single turbolasers to double turbolaser weapons, more advanced rockets, better shield generator or something? Because if i'm not mistaken the Vong would shred fleets and entire battalions to pieces before they lost a battle. Idk I always thought it'd be really cool to see something like that. It might not even be possible, idek where to begin with coding.

Just an idea though, stoked to see new updates <3

I reckon it would be realistic to give a small health and/or damage bonus if you fire (or take) a certain number of shots and survive. The obvious thing to do is do it on battles survived, for example 5 battles being survived increases health by 5%, but what if you retreat instantly? That counts as a battle right? But practically they have only gained experience in running away...

I think if you fire a certain number of shots and live (I'm talking like 3000 or something, depending on how many weapons the ship has) then you should get a 5 or 10% damage bonus, and if you Take 3000 shots and survive (again the number would depend on the ship health) then you get a 5 or 10% health bonus.

If of course this is doable... there's always that.

It would be very cool, especially if you change the look of the unit by changing turret types or something. It would be a ton of work though. First you would have to take the time to figure out how to do it then you would have to code a new unit for every upgrade and code the new hard points which isn't too difficult but very time consuming. If you ever get around to it though in an expansion pack or something it would probably be worth it in the end.

This idea was mentioned a number of months ago, but regardless it remains a good one :) whether it's implementable or not, I'm not sure... up to the coders to decide that one... but good shout.

I know it'd be a fuckload of work to do but yeah maybe in the waaay future for an expansion or patch after the majority of things are done you guys could think of something.

Really appreciate taking the time to at least discuss it :)

I don't know how many times I have looked at that ship on this site, since I love KDY ships, but the only part of the name that stuck in my head was KDY destroyer. Now that I look at the description again and notice it says Republic class like 5 times then I would agree this ship is covered. At least now I know more of the history behind it because I had no idea what it was back when you first showed it.
