Cool. I remember making something like this awile back. It is nicely balanced. I seem to remember a mod, I think it was called the nexus, that had a similar design.

I am not sure I completely understand how does that ship work since there's no crewmen (or the first beacon event adds one? o_O)
Anyway, always wanted to make an AI-piloted ship.

And I demand a video playthrough with that beauty! And yeah, nice ME reference. x3

All the systems repair slowly over time - very slowly, you can't lose if your entire crew dies, and all the mannable systems act as if they were being manned by an untrained officer.

However, you cannot buy crewmembers, as the game thinks you are at the crew cap. Events will grant people just fine, though, and the mod contains a starting event that gives you a single officer, apparently.

Wow, thanks for explanation! =) So this ship acts as a normal auto-scout (or assault), but has O2 room to support live crewmen? Sweet. :3

This ship is to the Nexus as Virgin Galactic's SpaceShip2 is to B.C. riding around on that stone unicycle.

I just finished one but I won't be posting it until the weekend. Amusingly it comes right after my run with the Nexus which I'll be posting starting tomorrow.

I am quite confused. The ingame layout appears to be QUITE different from the one in the OP, and the room that SHOULD contain the piloting system is by no means invulnerable. This is a result of copy-pasting the relevant blueprint from your mod, as well as both layout files, into my own mod.

Edit: Oops... never mind, my blueprint was from Superluminal, which seems to have altered the layout considerably. Equally confusing, but much more fixable, as I can replace the affected section of my own blueprint for PLAYER_SHIP_STEALTH with its original counterpart from your PLAYER_SHIP_CIRCLE. :D

This ship is really awesome, i beat the flagship 3 times in a row with it! Also, i have a question, a bit off topic but is it possible to get the slug interceptor to be a playable ship? Ive been trying with the Superluminal Ship editor and i keep getting errors :(

Enemy and player ships are built differently. You should remake the ship from scratch using rotated images of the interceptor. Just making a copy won't work i think. You can ask about the errors in the Superluminal thread.

It's an auto-ship.
Named Sovereign.
With a crewmember named Saren.
Kudos, my friend.
(In all seriousness, I think this is cool and I'm going to try it).

Well done ship. Haven't played it much, but it's looking good. I kinda dislike it... i want manned station bonuses and stuff, but that's just me. As far as crativity goes, well done sir, well done.
