snip...

Frigate/Cruiser class specs:

-Speed : between m2 and m6, 80/90 someting.
-Shield : 1 GJ
-Weaponry : 6 to 8 Big turrets, multiple smaller ones.
-Lasergen : Big
-Shieldgen : Big
-Size : roughly 1/3th that of an M2/TL
-Docking support : Yes, but only for 1 squadron (12 ships max).
-Cargo : XL, about 10.000
-Rep required to get one : Between M6 and M2 level
-Price : around 30 to 40 mil.
-Max gun size : Beta

What do you reckon?


Docking seems a bit high, maybe max of 6 instead of 12 unless your going for a carrier/frigate model but even then 12 may be to much.

Cargo seems a bit high too, m6 has max of 1500 m2 max is 13000
maybe split the difference and go with apx 5000 storage. The rest sounds fair to me

BTW it sounds awesome!

Dgn Master > Youre absolutely right, with a wing of 14 M3's it would eat M2's for breakfast.
Cargo thingy noted as well.
Ok, so exit the docking id maybe alltogether? or just 4 to 6 with max class m4 (dunno if that's possible but could be scripted in I guess).

Specs updated in initial post.

Max class of m4 would be with keeping with the overall feel of a mini battle ship imo, you could still pose a threat when they are fully launched to most craft while still being toasted by any m1/m2 out there.

If possible i would go with the m4 idea too.

i think it should have both anti capitol ship weapons and anti fighter weapons, but maybe not as powerful as the m2's

The missing element that needs to be filled is the anti-fighter role, whcih is what a frigate does.

So, it should only pack smaller guns really - A or BPPC on the nose turret, BHEPT max on all other turrets (Of which there are plenty of). Plus it should be able to field an impressive array of missiles, again like a real frigate (Frigates are the primary missile ships of a fleet) - PBE's or Flak would be intresting to see too.

You should fine tuen the energy reserves to allow it to fire for a very long period fully loaded with PAC's, but a full load of BHEPTs will flatten it fast, to avoid it being used as a capital ship killer.

I've almost got a preliminary Argon M7 done, only the mesh-modding that is. It's a crossover between a Titan and a Soviet Akula HK-sub Smile
Thing is, I totally forgot that there's probably going to be a need for a medium-sized turret as well since the big ones on the current ships will prolly look funny at best. (and the small ones, well...they are hardly visible on a M6, let alone anyhting bigger).
Shouldn't be to difficult to do...I hope/pray.
Docking bay-stuff is still totally grey to me so I'll make it without one first, then convert that bit in last.
I'll try to post a pic of a beta-version before the end of the day.

Btw; any help on getting them ingame would be much appriciated, and I don't mean the modding bit, I mean a nice script of some sort to put them on sale at various shipyards and stuff. (I'm a total scripting noob).

About the weapon-loadout;
This can be almost everyting....balance is rule I agree, this will take time to sort out and some testing by various people.

I'm thinking of giving the pirates a Kyon-Cruiser, equipped with a massive forward firing arc of fixed Kyon beams but backed up by a tiny generator.

Now I should stop editting Smile

I'd say .. M7 ala Deadly ..

a big M6 small M1 with limited fire-power about the speed off an M6 and about 15 dockingbays ..

(something like deadlys exp. M7 from X2)

Cycrow, would you know if it's possible to add different versions as well then?, like the Osprey and Nemesis already come with in the Tships.

I havent tested this yet but don't see any reason why this couln't be done.

First screenies available, plz tell me what you think of it.
Don't get ticked by the dull/matt-look, that's just 3ds.
Ingame it will shine just like any other ship.

New skins how beatifull the might be don't really change much of the in game flying and fighting feeling.

So you might want to consider also new weapons or stuff to create.

This would really do some difference to the m1/2 already existing
