And seeing as the default SCP splash screen sucks, we made this instead:

Heh, I was waiting for someone to say that. :) It's obviously not the Orion because the hangar section you can see in that shot is on the wrong side of the ship.

Actually it's the EACa Auriga class, a converted version of the Orion with twin hangars. Woo and I thought his mirrored Orion looked good as a carrier so he remapped it.

Goes well with the S:AH story as well.

1) Not sure if the big one will be used...

2) The Cabari is a carrier-destroyer type, the Lenaeus is a small carrier

3) If I remember later

4) We're hiding a few little things ;7 and about 50+ new weapons :D

 
The Cabari can carry about six wings of fighters and bombers, whereas the Lenaeus carries up to twenty wings. Basically you have your destroyer classes, that have their own small fighter capacities for light defensive purposes, and then the majority of fighter and bomber wings get deployed from dedicated carriers like the Lenaeus and Auriga. The big fleet carriers - the Tanen and the Warlock - carry about two hundred wings, but most of these get transferred to the smaller carriers for combat deployment.

Because they provide the command and control facilities for their entire fleet, the supercarriers won't engage in combat except under exceptional circumstances. :)

All the existing weapons are being modified or deleted to make room for new ones. Capital ships will have a far more varied range of armaments (MUCH fewer beams than before). Take the Aesacus for example. Her SWAT system fires tag-style missiles at approaching fighters, and any that get marked then get treated to a rapid fire barrage of missiles from her many turrets. Screenies to follow. ;)

Don't scrap EACa Telemus , it's very good ship.
If Telemus is too big for sol gate why you don't create a little larger  portal?

The Sol gate is already big enough.

Hm.  But the Sol Gate isn't big enough for the Icanus either, then.  Nor the Gigas.  So how do they meet each other? ;7

The Gigas can travel through unstable nodes. It just blows the Gate away and chugs on through.

I figured as much.  Or you'd have the thing where the node stabilized because the gate was running for a long time, à la the Gamma Draconis - Lupus Nebula node in A Flaming Sword.

The Sol gate won't be blown up.

It should.  That'd be cool.  Give it the "vaporize" flag. ;7

But you didn't say that the Icanus and the Gigas wouldn't meet. (It would seem rather obvious that they would, looking at the models.) So more speculation is needed.  Does the Gigas arrive through the unstable Sol - Beta Aquilae or Sol - Deneb node, perhaps?

I don't use PCS at all, I use a higher limit version of COB2POF.

 
This MOD is looking awesome. Keep it up McFoggies, and you will have yourself a playa, as soon as I can get all these damned upgrades like "Shinemaps" to work.
