Logain Industries Light Support Drone Carrier (LSDC)

Arrow Introduction:
Logain Industries has developed its FTL-PTP-T technology for Carrier based Drone operations.
When active and loaded with Drones the Carrier will teleport Drones to engage any enemy ship and recover remaining drones to its cargo bay.

The LSDC command is available to all Carrier class ships with the following software installed:
Fight Command II Software
Carrier Command Software
Supply Support Software
Patrol Command Software

The script will also make the Griffon available in all Argon Shipyards.

FDN Integration
If the FDN mod is installed and the ship is within range of a Node the ship will be able to request wares for production if it cannot fulfil the requirements from its own stock.
The FDN supply will use the same supply process, it will try to supply from its own stock, then from other Nodes within range, failing that and if it’s set to buy the required ware, the Node will provide from NPC sources if available.

Arrow Current Version:
Version 2 - Adds Drone Production & FDN Integration

Arrow Technical Info:
Command Slot - COMMAND_TYPE_FIGHT_41
Text ID - 9912
Page 17 - 300035-3000037 (for future use)

Arrow Download:
LSDC v2 Download

Arrow Install LSDC:

Install of script files:
Use Plugin Manager by Cycrow Link to install the script .spk file
Or:
Manually install files from the script.zip. This link contains a guide for installing script files manually.
Great guide by Cycrow: Link

Turn on AL Plugin:
LSDC uses the AL Plug-in.
Great guide by LV shows how to turn on an AL Plug-in: Link

I have used an AL Plugin for ease. All LSDC tasks will check the state of the AL Plugin, if it's not active the tasks will exit. Also if the AL Plugin is off the Griffon will be removed from Argon Shipyards.

Arrow Required Script Files:
The LSDC uses String Functions Library (lib.chem.strings) by Chem aka ChemODun: Link

Arrow LSDC Guide:
Set-up:
Enable the LSDC AL Plug-in

Main Menu:


The main LSDC menu is accessed via the Carriers Combat Commands and is used to activate Drone operations, set Rules of Engagement and Drone production.

The info section:
Lists the current type and amount of Drones

Status:
Used turn on/off LSDC operations

Deployment:
The carrier can use 3 modes to deploy Drones:
Normal - Deploy as normal, recovered by teleport
Combat Launch - Used teleport to deploy quickly in close vicinity of the Carrier, recovered by teleport
Target Launch - Uses teleport to deploy quickly in close vicinity of the target, recovered by teleport

Rules of Engagement:


Player defined options for the assessment and response to detected threats.
Used to set the response level (None, Report, Engage), and the type & amount of Drones used.

Drone Production:


Used to start production of the 3 main Combat Drones types.
It displays the production time, produced amount and the required wares.
Each Drone type has it's own production task which can run concurrently

Settings:
LSDC will display screen warning if a Large or/and large number of contacts are detected is a single scan.

Wasnt there a problem with the size of the FTL-P2P-T technology and that it have to be on a fixed position? So how can it functioning on a moving carrier with limited cargo space? Wink

And isnt the CODEA script the number one "mixed fleet" script out there?

Personally i am a big fan of drone carriers since Xtended for Reunion. Its like a personal khaak swarm. Twisted Evil

It will only be in-sector rather than multi-sector like it's big brother. A new development breakthrough by Logain Industries Wink

Yes I will need to have a look at well established scripts like CODEA before going forward Exclamation

It will have minimal point defence weapons and no missile capabilities so it will be an easy target against Capital ships.

there is a ship called Griffon, in XTM had the same purpose you described.
it is still in the game files but the scripts to make it work are nonexistent.

However I’m mulling over an ability for it to deploying a mine screen in front of any inbound M7 and above class ships, a drop and run.
the Tern (in game files) was supposed to do just that in XTM.

Spent must of my time building FDN & SSDN so it looks like I don't know half of what in game Laughing

I believe the above are not playable unless scripted in?

Griffon can only be scripted but is as XTM (ish) without drones.
Tern exists but has been modified a bit to be a Shrike without hangar but with 16000 cargo bay. (not buyable)

Phase one will be to prove concept:

Using some test scripts I have built for SSDN, make small adaptations and run on a Mammoth.

Stock with drones and test in a quiet sector against a fleet of various small ships. Hopefully sit back and watch the fireworks Smile

Thoughts on ship specifications:
Size between TL & M7, first choice will be an existing model....
Reduced speed and agility in line with existing M1 class ships
Reduce weapons to anti-fighter class and reduce turret slots
Maybe increase/decrease shield to sit in-between M7 & M1
Reduce docking to 2-4 slots
Reduce storage to hold around 300 to 500 drones (room taken up for FTL-P2P-T)

I don’t think the script side will be an issue and there’s a tonne of stuff for ship tweaking.

No Gym tonight and the girlfriend is out, so I have some me time to play with this tonight Smile

i dont know if the model is big enough, but a TM fits your description, but again its pretty small

the scripting aspect of this should be really easy.
out of curiosity, is the ship gonna build its drones, buy them, or load them only from player stations

have fun messing around in the SE

It will have to be supplied Drones, either via player produced or bought.

Maybe at a later date I'll add ship production.....

this is a griffon.

this is a Tern

just in case you wanna see them Very Happy

just a thought.... 166 Keris killed a M2 in 1 minute, with minimal (10-11) losses, even with MARS. (mainly because the dumb bots rammed the target)

Cheers Smile

166 in minute sounds about right, I think SSDN will deploy 80 against a M2 by default with a similar loss ratio.
SSDN will also replace any losses with 2 replacements Wink Think I'll keep that on the carrier but against fighters only.

I have the test build up and running and it works a treat Very Happy

Basic functionality with no reporting like you get with SSDN.

I have a test script which will turn any TL with Fight Command 2 installed into a Drone Carrier.

Would anyone like to test for me?

Please Exclamation
