Back in FS1 the Galatea was destroyed by the third beam salvo. I think the double-LRed hits are still enough to take an Orion out in FS2 with the same number of hits.... I'll try and report back in a few minutes.

Also remember that the GTVA equiped their capital ships with beam resistant armor even back in FS2 times, 18 years before the Blue Planet time.

Edit: Seems we were both right to some degree..... With two LRed the Lucifer takes a Orion down to 10% with two salvos, the third kills it. BUT the standard FS2 version of the Lucifer is equiped with SRed....
And I mixed up the beams of the BP Lucy. It has HRed in the forward arms and LRed in the side slots.
Those do more damage than the LRed, but due to the longer cooldown time they seem to have the same damage per seconds potential as the LRed on Medium.

Since the mod's gonna have the stats taken from BP, not vanilla FS2, the Lucifer will pack a big punch.

Well, remember that the Lucy is able to easily defeat the Raynor-class Orestes in BP, the most powerful GTVA destroyer in service. It's supposed to be a unique and fearsome opponent, and there is no way in hell it will end up with puny SReds.

People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Dunno, IIRC FSPort's SSL are still badly low-res.

But it obvious that the Luci's beams should deal a massive amout of damage (maybe with a longer recharge time and slow turning speed) right?

Btw, really nice screenies :)

I think the damage the Lucifer does by BP stats is massive enough. While it can't focus all it's firepower forward, it does have more beampower than a Ravana, though it clearly lacks in regard of non-beam weapons.

And remember that, shielded or not, the Lucy still has 800k hullpoints - for comparison, the toughest destroyer class in retail is the Demon with 160k HP (just second in all BP destroyers before the 180k of the Solaris). That also correspond to 80% of the Sath and Coly health. So it definitely doesn't need any shields.

Time for some updateness.



Now why isn't there anything higher-res than 512² for the Nahema ?

This is looking fantastic; honestly can't wait to play! :cool: Have there been any decisions as of yet on how resourcing is going to work? Is it going to be the old HW2 asteroid method or a different kind?

It's gonna be mainly HW1-like dust clouds harvesting with Zephyrus, and probably some debris harvesting too. I have to learn scripting before implementing cargo delivery and cargo depot recovery.

However first release of the BP version will be mostly tactical rather than strategy gameplay - you've got a fleet, and you destroy the enemy fleet. Implementing AI and building is quite unfun.

Use ASW's SSL beam effects?

True. Maybe  have a browse around some of the HW sites; there might be a coder whose interested. Might even be able to find a mod with similar coding and adapt the code from that.

I didn't say I couldn't do it, only that's a pain in the arse. I work on easier and more eyecandyish things first :P. And if I want to ever release something, I need to not be too much ambitious, this is after all a one-man project.

What will the Anemoi's job be in this mod?
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Repairing ships, docking fighters, will probably serve as a resource depot too. Maybe some bonuses to nearby ships.

Nice work on the Orion debris. :yes:
Is there any chance to get beam piercing into HW2 as well?

Beam pierce already in HW2, although without huge flames behind them.

And repair with the Anemoi will be docking, much like in the BP mission 13 : Preserving the Balance. I have yet to determine if it would be more practical to have the ships dock on the Anemoi, or the contrary.

I actually don't think the Anemoi is docked in that mission any more because of hull clipping issues.  :(
