Not yet, i hope i got some time this weekend for further tests.
The bayamon is the pirate XL ship. It has fewer weapons, hull and armor but more storage for raiding trade ships. :-)
Ok, that makes sense ;)

how much more do I need :lol:
Probably you need c.a 300 fighters armed with missiles ;) I'm currently using Mk1 module and if I throw 100 S fithters with missiles against Eureka, I lose 5-10 of them. In my previous game I was fighting Bayamon Protectors, losing c.a. 15-25 S's of 150 engaged in such combat. Anyway, swarm of fighters, missiles and torpedoes, not dozens of destroyers, is what you need. *

I think i have found the problem, but it takes some time to fix that, because i have to edit every single ship. :roll:

Well, for now mod provides some fine battleships with good firepower and challenging enemies, so I'm not complaining ;)
However, I think I found more serious problem. Maybe it's your mod, maybe it's vanilla issue, I'm not sure - but after building larger fleets I noticed that subordinate M ships (Nemesis, Osprey) are trying to dock at wing leader Taranis. Problem is - Taranis has no M docks nor M space. As a result, subordinate M's are stranded with 'critical' dock order, I can't cancel it nor give another order, the only workaround I figured is to take the helm personally (that cancels 'critical' dock order if M is far enough from Taranis) and change commander before new 'dock' order is issued.

it probably uses carrier AI and they do this, kind of annoying even if they have docks bc after every action they go dock, then get stuck waiting to dock while new enemies come and shoot at them

Probably you're right. But in most cases this is just annoying - I can cancel order manually or, if docking is already in progress, wait for it to finish and then regain control of the ship. But when ship is trying to dock on other ship with no proper dock for it (like M on Taranis), problem gets more serious - ship sits in place defenceless for hours and there's no way to clear it's order queue (other than described in my previous post - but I don't want to do this with 20 or 50 M's).
Howewer, it's not critical - I'm simply not assigning M's directly to Taranis any more and everything works just (I wanted to say "fine", but I just couldn't do this ;] ) as in vanilla

Yeah, my ships are classified as XL ships and these ships use the egosoft carrier AI. I can't do much about it.
Thats the reason why some of my ships with a main gun don't fire with these or not very often.

Hi Sco,

I am working on a XR Ship pack mod and I would like to use some of the work you put into importing the Arawn, Taranis and some more from XR. I would still change some aspects like module positions and number of turrets or values, but it would save me a lot of work if I can use your mod as a base.
The goal of my ship pack is a bit different than yours. All ships in my pack shall be balanced towards the other ships with only a few more turrets. I also dont want to put extra races into it.
Balancing, extra races or scrips can then altered by other mods which use my pack as a base.

In regards, of course you can use all my imported ships as well (as anyone else can do this).

Also I have another question to the players of this mod:

When you sit in the cockpit of the Arawn.. do you see a lot of texture flickering? Because I have a lot of flickering but only in the Arawn (OK I have only checked the Taranis also so far).

I have a lot of trouble with the ai docking small ships on the Arwan m3. is there a fix or an update in the future planned to address the docking paths?

Hey Max Bain,
sure, feel free to use my ported Taranis and Arawn.
Use my mod as base is not a good idea i think, because i have a lot of changes in it and not only ships. But you can grab Arawn and Taranis out of it and use it in your mod, this should be a lot easier.
Can you make a screenshot of the flickering? Never noticed this before. :gruebel:

What kind of problems and with which docking bays you got the problems?
I will rework the araw, when the x4 converter will get improved.
