Nice I like them all but i do have a couple sugestions for the Star Trek powers. All Romulan and Klingon ships should have cloak and the Sovereign should have a tractor beam.

Oh and the Heal for the Wraith ships from Stargate sound like a nice idea.

And for Star Wars the Jedi Starfighter could use a speed boost instead of invunribilty and give that to a small hero.

well the jedi fighters are what makes the cruiser a level 12, theyre the ultimate fighters ingame lol
All for heals, it only heals the wraith ship itself not others
I try and limit the cloakable ship to 2 per faction
and ill give tractor beam to picard instead of power 2 weapons (standard ship 1 ability, heroes 2... for the most part)

Reply Good karma+1 vote

umm small question the abiltiy "mac shot" it wont take away the normal mac shot will it?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

yes, itll mean u need to aim the ship manually, ie point it at the enemy before pressing the ability, (sorry only way i can get it to work) then activate it for a 1/2/3/4 mac shot depending on the ship

Reply Good karma+1 vote

is this intended?("Warlock Destroyer hero - fukk salvo") If yes what does it do?(i never watched wing commander)

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

lol meant 2 be full lmao

Reply Good karma+2 votes

Does "Defend" for the Covie ships refer to shield boost, or point defense?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

shield boost
i know they had point defense, but this ones easier 2 code

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Did you make the beam nuke ability for the Daedalus?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

yep its workin... sorta

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Why sorta? If you need a better one I could give you the coding I created for a beam nuke ablilty in my personal Stargate mod. Don't know if the ability needs to be balanced or not, it took two nukes to blow up a ISD.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

well im just tuning the range/damage thats the sorta

Reply Good karma+1 vote

or.... the ability would need all of the ship antimatter reserves to be used and destroyed up to a cruiser(to be fair) and as a 5 min reload time. Simple suggestion.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

yeh its got a 1min reload atm and can take out level 1-3 ships in one hit and drop shields on 4-6 half shield on 7-9 and 1/4 shield on 10-12
its very effective against fighters and bombers
and im fine with that balancing

looks great cant wait for it it come out :)

My thoughts are maybe looking at replacing some of the power to weapons for BSG. Just to get a bit more variety.
How about a nuke ability for the Galactica as it did have some in the show?
Also they could probably use a repair ability on a ship too, like ST's Nebula. Having no shields means they always take damage so repair would suit them well. Could have it on a Cylon ship seeing as how they can auto repair and they did help repair Galactica with that weird goo stuff.
Just wondering as well, is it possible to code in rebuilding hardpoints on ships? I'm guessing no or it would probably have been done. Just a thought because I remember when fighting BSG as ST I would move in and target the hardpoints then retreat to allow my shields to recharge. Eventually they had a crippled fleet and couldnt bring in more ships. I guess a human opponent would have sacrificed them but still, I feel bad about doing that just so I can bring in a fresh ship.

yeh, bsg'll get self repair as well (like the hives)
galactica could have a nuke ability... never thought of that
Not reaaly, all hardpoint now are undestroyable, so that wont work any more lol

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Thats good. As cool as destroyable hardpoints are it can lead to balance issues against shielded ships.
I was thinking that a MAC like barrage ability would work for the Mercury class as well. They have large, forward facing bow cannons. I see they already have barrage but im assuming thats using their smaller cannons?
Could move that to Columbia class if you are looking for more variety?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I dont like the turbo on the Human Stargate ships... I think something more along the lines of assault something like that...

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

its only because the abilities are limited

Reply Good karma+1 vote

what about Space Battleship Yamato? :(

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

easter egg lol

Reply Good karma+1 vote

I think the B5 shadow battle crab should have cloak, since they are the only ones in B5 that has similar tech, "they just meld with the darkness of space" but still =] also the Excalibur should have a Super weap, like the SW Eclipse has... tho making it powerless for 2min... also defend is kinda use less on B5 ships since they don have shields, some have regenerating hull and such, tho most capital/frigates have a point defense system, but no shields except for the 3rd space gate...
btw what ship is the ark hammer in B5?
other wise looks good=]

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

cool, i dont know much b5, ill give the crab cloak, and the excalibur was going 2 have a beam similar to the halo keyship attack
I thought the minbari had shields... meh... ill swap those 2 point defense if i can
thanks for the info

awesome =]

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Great abilities! U did good job! Could I ask something though: Why did you take out Boba Fett from Star Wars faction?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

he wasn't in it, its always been the falcon

Reply Good karma+1 vote

I know that, I'm asking why wasn't he in the mod at all?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

because theres a limited number of spaces in each faction, and the hero in a flacon type ship would always be solo before fett

Reply Good karma+1 vote

i feel like all fighters shold have the hunt ability if they have enough room available, and itd be cool and nice if a few tier 3/4 shiups like corvettes or light antifighter frigates had a hunt ability.
but the rest are very nice ideas

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Very nice, but if the flood ships get "infest" i think that the Borg Cube should get somthing more like "Assimilate" other than bribe

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

thats what i meant by bribe
ive tried 2 give each faction 1 ship that has a bribe equivilant (ie infest, telepathy, assimilate etc)

Reply Good karma+1 vote

I thought you couldnt get the cloak to work on a squad of puddle jumpers unless you were turning the squad into just 1 jumper?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

i havn't tried it in a while and ive had a few ideas lol

Reply Good karma+1 vote

What about the BS Pegasus?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

lol forgot 2 put that as a hero, but DW its in there, its abilities are jump and full salvo of bow shots

Reply Good karma+1 vote

What is the jump ability?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote
Spinobreaker Author

the jump ability is one unique to BSGs style of FTL. It allows a ship to jump across the map as long as the other side is visible. Problem is the AI doesn't understand to 2 use it and therefor cant :'(
but if u look at the link below, itll show u
