This is...

This ship is 2X the size of the Kestrel. This is my first mod, all support and criticism accepted.

Background
The Starkiller Base is the first orders base of operations. It is shown to be at least 5x the size of the death star. It has a powerful solar laser.

Known problems:
A few glitches including broken room outlines, Glitches in hangar and maybe a few more.

FTL profile:
The Federation saw potential in the work of fantasy and made it their most powerful ship. Known for having super powerful beams.

I should give it a run but Fallout 4... always Fallout 4.
Seriously, I've even stopped playing League of Legends and I would always rush whatever I did to play it whenever I could.

But yeah I might give it a whirl once I'm done slaughtering everyone with a sword and sniper rifle.

Anyway, here's some ideas for improvements based on what you've said the ship has.

Cannot buy augments in shops


Why? I could sell that Battery Charger and use it to buy something better.

Cannot obtain drones


Add this to your blueprints.xml to prevent people from accidentally buying it and wasting a system slot/scrap. It makes Drones not show up in stores (and if they do somehow, it'll be too expensive to buy)

Code: Select all

<systemBlueprint name="drones">
   <type>drones</type>
   <title>Drone Control</title>
   <desc>Powers all of the ship's drones. Drones are automated robots that perform tasks like attacking enemy ships or repairing systems.</desc>
   <startPower>2</startPower>
   <maxPower>8</maxPower>
   <rarity>0</rarity>
   <upgradeCost>
      <level>10</level>
      <!-- level 2 -->
      <level>20</level>
      <!-- level 3 -->
      <level>30</level>
      <!-- level 4 -->
      <level>45</level>
      <!-- level 5 -->
      <level>60</level>
      <!-- level 6 -->
      <level>80</level>
      <!-- level 7 -->
      <level>100</level>
      <!-- level 8 -->
      <level>120</level>
      <!-- Imaginary level 9 -->
   </upgradeCost>
   <cost>9999</cost>
</systemBlueprint>


Overall the ship looks overpowered. Well above the Shrike Line honestly.

I know. Somewhere along the lines i made it overpowered. And I will likely implement the code in later ships if i believe it is necessary. Thanks for the advice! And i will fix the augments thing (And the crew) in the post.

I really do recommend you make a new version with the drone system fix. I made a Scrin Carrier a long time ago where it only had one weapon slot if one were to buy Weapons. But even if I warned people it's not a good investment, people would still buy it and complain that it only had one weapon and they wasted Scrap.

Okay. I will get round to it. :D thanks for the help.
