If I wasn't too lazy to mess with figuring out how to get a fresh install in so I could keep my regular version of AP, I'd try this mod. But. Lazy.

So I have no idea what the Morrigu is, but I'm going to say the morrigu, marlin, and centaur die. And the Phanon fleet. Naysayer out.

to get a fresh install.... delete your current AP directory (uninstall the game first but also delete the directory to remove any hint of mods you may have had installed) Then install the game. Boom clean install. If you use steam then you should also copy paste the game to a new directory to keep steam from messing with things and then install the no steam exe.

as to the battle.......

Yes I just did that having tried to move my OS from my old drive to my new one it all went Pete Tong and I have had to start from scratch including a full windows install and the wonderful steam down load saga.

What I meant is that I'd want to keep the unmodded version too. I am definitely not going to commit all of my AP stuff to someone's mod, no matter how good it might be.

@Song Of Obsidian: The Morrigu is a pirate M6. Kind of average, but it gets the job done.

Sooo ... We got four M6 of various sorts against a Hyperion, 3 heavy fighters, one interceptor and four scouts. If you haven't sold all of your Typhoons, and you remember that your corvettes can actually use them ( Razz ), I'd say the Phanon will get curbstomped without the Dragons even breaking a sweat.

I don't know. The Hyp is pretty potent, but it depends on the changes LU makes. My personal style is not to deal with these odds without a booster. Then I'd take the Hyp and play booster tag with the M6's. What's the speed difference? You might be able to spread them out and destroy them one at a time. Defeat in detail and all that.

The booster isn't compatible with LU, so that's kind of out of the question. Speedwise the LU Hyp took a hit from the nerf bat, but it's still faster than anything kaistern got if the engine is maxed out. It can also carry 1.2 GJ of shielding, so it's a pretty tough bird. Weapon compatibility is similar to vanilla AP, recharge and weapons capacitor is a bit above average and and it can't fire the Wraith missile anymore.

I still say it's [edit]pretty easy[/edit] to take it if he uses his wasps and silkworms to take care of the fighters, knock the shields of the Hyperion down with missiles and then gang up on it while still firing the odd missile to keep the turrets busy and help kill it faster. If he doesn't use missiles, then he might end up with a few dents in his ship or possible casualties ... Razz

Oh, the Hyp is the bad guys? That's simple then. Grab the Centaur and gate bounce until the fighters have been swatted, then swarm it with M6's.

Also, no booster? What was he thinking?

Oops I forgot about my fighters, not much of a difference but I also have 3 M3 that will be joining me in this battle as well as the marine lander. But lets see how it plays out...

One thing you need to know going into this battle is that fragmentation bomb launchers got reworked a bit. They are now one of the more effective weapons in LU. Wish I had known that going into this battle. lol

--------------------

Sitting in the command chair of the Vengeance I watched as my small fleet readied itself for battle. It had taken several minutes for the fleet to warp in and for me to dock the Discoverer I had been flying in to the Blue CnC then Transport over to the Vengeance. In the mean time the angels had managed to safely dock to a couple of nearby stations and now the Hyperion had sent it's fighter escorts to engage us while it quickly followed. The Marine Lander had also joined us, in and was reading her marines for boarding the Hyperion. I felt eager. Hyperions were fearsome warships and to capture one would certainly make me a force to be reckoned with.

"Blue one to Vengeance. We have launched and are at the ready. Awaiting orders." Frankie's voice came over the radio. Frankie had decided to take lead of the fighter wing instead of just sitting back and commanding them. Not much of a fighter wing, being as there was only three of them; however every ounce helped.

"Understood, Blue one. The corvettes will engage the Hyperion. Take your wing and keep the fighters off of us."

I increased my throttle to max as I watched feed from my advanced satellite showing the progress of the enemy fleet. the Hyperion was almost to the sector core, while it's fighters were almost with in range of my fighters. All of a sudden the feed from the Satellite turned into static.

"Gizmo what happened to my feed?" I asked confused.

"Boss the enemy Hyperion destroyed the satellite." How odd an Phanon commander with half a since of strategy. Still he didn't have to much or he would be retreating right now not engaging a superior force."

The fighter reached each other and blue wing popped on of the scout ships right off the bat. They took a few hits in return but nothing the scouts could fire was a real threat to heavy fighters.

"Jones fire a volley of wasps to cover the fighters. Might as well help them out while we close on the Hyperion."

"That's a negative captain. We used the last of our missiles in that fight with the xenon. Our missile tubes are dry."

"Shit, nothing left? I thought we resupplied before he left."

"Remember when the workers were on strike because of the food shortage? We still haven't fully recovered from that."

"Well shit, I guess they are on their own for the moment then."

The Hyperion appeared back on our scanners, not some 20k out bearing down on us a full speed. The distance closed quickly, next thing I knew we were with in 5km with laser locked and loaded. Blue wing had reported destroying the other three scout ship and were now fighting the other three fighter and the interceptor. As the Hyperion came within range I let loose with all of my cannons straight into her face. The captain of the Hyperion kept his bearing and returned fire with a full load of fragmentation bombs. Vengeance shuttered as they impacted her shields. A quick glance confirmed my fears, my shields had fallen to 82% while the Hyperions were holding at 85%. On the other hand there were a lot more of us. I fire another volley and received another in return, and again. Shields were now at 50% for both ships. I didn't like these odds but my other corvettes should be coming into range any....

"Incoming missiles!" Jones shouted. I looked up from the console just in time to see multiple warheads slam into me. "Shield critical! We're taking hull damage!"

"What the hell! When did they start using missiles???" I replied as I dove the ship to avoid ramming the Hyperion. The Hyperion kept going and passed right by the rest of my fleet, easily avoiding most of the damage from my other ships. It kept flying straight even when we were behind it trying to catch up. Where is it going? I wondered as I wracked my brain to figure out what it was doing, and then it occurred to me

"Vengeance to Marine One. Get out of here! The Hyperion is bearing straight down on you!!!" I watched in fear as the Hyperion unleashed a barrage at the marine lander. The barrage hit the marine lander quickly reducing its shields and then impacting it hull. I couldn't take my eyes off of the screen as I watched the explosions rip across it's hull in what seemed like slow motion and then.... it vanished.

"Boss the Marine Lander is reporting successful jump to Cloudbase Southeast. She's hurt but no casualties."

"YEAH!!!!!" I yelled in joy at the good news. "Alright lets teach that Hyperion a lesson!!"

"Boss is that wise? We are in no shape to fight her. Our shields have only recovered to 5%."

"We have this one, Jones." They Hyperions quickly turned around and came about to face us. once again the distance quickly dwindled. As it came into range I let loose a volley from my main cannons and preformed a barrel roll to dodge the majority of it's return fire. Still it hit enough to break my shields again and leave a dent in my hull. Crap Jones is right, it's time to get out of here. I thought as I reached for the jumpdrive.

"Incoming missiles!" Jones shouted again. I felt time slow as I looked up to see the warhead stream straight into the front of my ship. Boom! I closed my eyes as explosion after explosion rocked the ship. I guess I cut this one to close was my final thought as a last explosion rocked the bridge and then....... Silence.
