THE REBEL CRUISER!
Before I continue, I'll put the credits here now so I don't anger anyone:
Hull design NOT BY ME, all credit goes to the contributors of Captain's Edition.
Room layout by me.
Type B color change by me, hull shape by CE contributors (as stated above).
Cloak images made by me.
Made using Superluminal ship editor.
There is both a Type A and B version of this ship, as well as CE versions. THIS REPLACES THE STEALTH CRUISER.
Type A Hull: (this ship is an enemy in Captain's Edition, credit goes to the modders of CE)
Type A cloak: (cloaking images by me)
Type B hull:
Type B cloak:
Weapons: the weapons of this ship varies depending on if it's the vanilla FTL version or Captain's Edition version of the ship.
Type A vanilla: Burst Laser III
Type A CE: Laser Charger, Phase Ion II
Type B vanilla: Chain Vulcan
Type B CE: 2 Auto Lasers
Starting Systems: (they will be listed with the starting level after the name)
Type A: Shields 2, Engines 1, Weapons 4,Oxygen 1, Medbay 1, Artillery 1. ( put artillery because if the FEDERATION cruiser can have it, why not the REBEL one? plus, you can be shot by a fleet artillery anyway.
Type B: Shields 2, Engines 1, Weapons 4, Oxygen 1, Medbay 2, Artillery 1, Cloaking 1.
How it's balanced:
Type A: Vanilla or CE, it begins with a powerful weapons array. But that means you may not be able to power other strong weapons in the future, and you have only 2 extra system slots.The artillery also helps, but you'll need to upgrade that first to make it actually effective. You can only upgrade to 25 reactor bars total, so that saps some power too.
Type B: In vanilla, the Chain Vulcan is very useful but slow to power up. Not only that, but it also uses a lot of power and could take a while to make it fast shooting. In CE, the auto lasers cannot penetrate strong shields. Either way, The cloaking system proves to be useful, BUT that means you only have 1 extra system slot left- You MUST choose very wisely, depending on the situation.
Type A vanilla: repair arm
Type A CE: Anti-Ship battery/ASB (it's a Rebel fleet elite forward unit. there's a good reason for including that.)
Type B vanilla: Stealth Weapons
Type B CE: Subspace scanner
Weapons slots: 4
Drone slots: 2
Room layout: I'll let you find out...
