Make all ships modular

Post by DrysonB on Mon Sep 30, 2013 11:57 pm

I recently installed C.E. and have been enjoying the new changes.

I suggest that all capital ships from carrier to the Mothership have a modular weapon design incorporated into their design just like the destroyers and cruisers have had.

More versatility means better game play.

Agreed, but also extend this idea to the vaygr aswell, even if its just on the cap ships.

The idea behind this system is (at least in my opinion) to stabilize the capital ship transition of Hiigarans against whatever they are facing. Vaygr does not really have this problem, seeing as their economy is so much stronger thanks to the research system.
Making super capitals modular would be a lot of work, and would not be very fitting. The problem here is that you could have specialized anti-fighter battlecruisers... not only would this ask for a complete balance rehaul, but these ships would be incredibly tedious to arm, because we don`t really have a good hotkey system for building ships.

Will have to say no to this, especially to expanding this to vaygr.

I think it would be virtually impossible to balance the game with all ships modular!
Also, whilst some Hiig ships are modular, this would be an alien thing to Vaygr.

Modular construction options for medium capital ships fills a logical role in the Hiig fleet, in that it allows a limited degree of custimisation within a particular platform (DD and CA) without upsetting the overall power of that platform relative to other ships in the game. It is also a device to avoid large numbers of hulls in the build menu.

sorta have to agree with nakamura, the only thing tho, is that modular ships should come with some prebuilt modules maybe? that can be replaced if so the player desires?

That kind of pre-armed modular ships was planned actually, but it requires some code modifications. It`ll be present in Rebirth.
