New drone added to the A, moves faster then the regular drones and slight fire rate change, to prevent the drones clustering up together and firing at the same laser/missile/asteroid.
Drone Harbour B added!
comments and replies would be appreciated.
This ship is not overpowered, it's oversized, it slightly challenging, It's fun, but not overpowered.
Quick Message: This is my 2nd mod on the forums and (technical) 3rd ship here. This is my first ship with modded weapons and drone.
Oh and it does fit in game, just not in hanger sort off.
Also due to how big the shield bubble is, The drones got a worse response time to projectiles, as a method of not making it OP once it gets 1 shield.

What is the "Hard" ships?
Typically, it halves everything besides sytem levels and other obvious things.
This includes but not limited to... starting crew, starting weapons, Starting drones, etc.
This also includes a reduction of 50% of the hull, from vanilla (30) hull to mod (A: 50, B:40) hull, making 40 hull for the A and 35 hull for the B. This is for people who found the normal ship to easy.
Replaces: Engi A and Engi B
-DiscordDraconequus: For helping test and give his insight on my ship, Big thanks to him.-Sleeper Service: For giving me inspiration with his Captains Edition mod, a must use mod. And the guy who sliced the engi ships to make a new engi station that I sliced to make a new engi flagship, Engi-Slice-Ception?
-If any, fix Balance issues and Bug issues
Defense Drone mk II base
Beam Drone mk I
Captains Edition station "Engi Medical Station" (which is also sliced from vanilla recourses)
Several things not just including Captains Edition. But general over hall mods, eg Incursor, FotF, FSB. etc.

Short Story: This ship is the largest ship of the Engi brigade of the Federation Fleet.
It got an outstanding amount of drone bays and weapon mounts,The drones serve mostly for Defence
for the large colossus of a ship, it got a really durable haul and it has nearly every system available and there is plenty of room for those to be installed. But this ship is terribly slow and was originally made to have Zoltans as well with Engi's to man it. But a recent attack has many of them dead or wounded and even worse, the shields were crippled and needed to be removed. The only Brightside of that attack was there as a enemy survivor, a Mantis. Who was healed in the advance medbay and dedicated to work onboard The Zodiac.
How ever he's to eager to start fighting the enemy and makes the Engi's concerned on what choices will be made by him.
"74.445% chance of starting another war with other alien species. Chance of survival: Low"
Unique/ stand outs:
50 hull points.No starting Cloak or Sheilds.
High amount of crew and systems / system level.
High amount of starting drones + weapons
3 augments at start.
250 Scrap to get operational shields, 150 to buy the system, 100 to upgrade it to level 2. (unconfirmed)
-upgrade drones ASAP, the more defense drones the less UP you are and more OP you get.
-Beams and Bombs are the bane of your existence, make sure to take those weapons out before things get ugly.
-upgrade weapons after you get drone level 4-6+
-use the Engi ability to repair and take fires out fast.
Cheat/ abuse: (if you do these your a dirty little abuser/ cheater )
-abuse the hull repair drone + drone recovery arm to FTL before the Drone disappears if you're really struggling.
-send your mantis in and run around the ship, preventing some degree of repairs and distracting there crew
Engi Defense Drone:
Fires a high seed ion that disrupts, warps, and destroys the enemy projectile.
Enemy combat drones
slowly orbits your ship
Engi Heavy Laser:
Slower charge rate.
medium breach chance
medium fire chance
common in stores
Rest = Stock Heavy Laser
Engi Drone Harbour B
(not full size)
URL LINK TO HANGER + ROOM IMAGE - B - The Moebius: http://i.imgur.com/l1vTzjC.png?1
40 hull6 drone slots
powerfull anti ship drone capabilities
1 person medbay
-Get more drone power, not weapon or shield power.
-Keep your medbay on most of the time, the nano-bots will heal your crew more effectively then healing only when your crew are dying. the medbay is only 1 person.
Engi Heavy Ion Laser:
no hull damage.
2 system damage.
1 ion damage.
good support weapon.
Common traits with Heavy laser and Ion blasts.
Engi Beam Drone:
60% slower then regular beam drone. but still got enough positives to make it better, can peirce 1 layer of shield but does 1 damage then.
Rest = stock beam drone.
==================( Methods of Balance and Explanations)==========================
(You do not need to read this, just for the curious and complainers)
Med nano bots: it is a signature augment for engi ships, this is a engi ship, I do not put rockplate on it or put slug repair gel on the Kestrel do I?
+100 scrap for shields: to not make you invincible to easy to fast
High crew: Bigger ship, Bigger crew.
Mantis: He is there because of an ironic twist, it was captured by the Engi.
Slots: It is a class "Flagship" ship? you want it to start with 1 basic laser and a system repair drone?
Med bay to Teleporter distance: to balance it for having a 4 man teleporter + all the other goodies it already has.
Names: The vanilla ships are named after things that have holes and typically ring like or donut, so I name these ships with the same theme.
Hard: Some people found it to easy
