It'd definitely help but still doesn't solve the problem. If energy reserves were completely customizable via AI profile multipliers, the need for alternate ship classes would be nullified.

And lol, that's what happens when modders stay away for so long: I completely forgot that shield resistance can be edited in FRED! :lol:


If you mean shield armor types, they couldn't until recently. Fury got the change-armor-type SEXP added during BP dev.

No, I meant the customizable value in Ship Editor ---> Special Hits. :)

Yep that's been around since retail so far as I know, but with armor types you can change an equivalent value on the fly.

Uh, as far as I remember it was impossible to do in retail...

You're right. Oh how far we've come!

More squad screenshots!

137th Scarlet Lions. The player will start the main INFASA campaign as a pilot of this squad:

Exactly why is this elite Martian squadron using a 30+ year old ship like the Angel? Otherwise, very cool.

The 137th is not an elite squadron, it's the player's squadron at the beginning of the campaign. At the time of writing, it's the only non-elite squadron to be presented that way.

The Angel is a cheap solution in patrol missions, so that's why it's still employed... but don't expect to see a great many Angels in the most critical engagements.

So the player is part of a grunt squadron and issued old tech for fighting pirates? Sounds plausible.

Is it still used in the Hornet's Nest equivalent (if that mission still exists?).

It's used for scouting purposes, and may still handle fighters at close range, but I wouldn't say that the Republic relies on Angels to defeat pirates.

Hornet's Nest? Hehe... if things go well, you'll fly a prototype fighter in that mission. ;7

Some Claymore derivative maybe?

Kinda. We have a nice model for that role, but need some modelling help to get it ingame. I asked Rga_Noris to take care of it, but he has other WIPs to work on at the moment.

So it's like a stealth Claymore?

Not stealth by default but thanks to special treatment and a special OCP. But we're going too much into details here. :)

So it jams enemy sensors with like a computer virus or something?

Hey Mobius, you know there's an HTL Zagreus these days...

I really like those squad logos, how do you get them?

That is the HTL Zagreus.

I still like Moonred's better.
'specially after I got rid of its low poly turrets for more detailed ones.

Inferno most likely has a reason for keeping their version. Namely, all Inferno ships I believe use the same turret set (or rather, one for each faction). It'd be a pain to have to go through and replace all the old turrets, or else the Zagreus would be an oddball.
