The Scrapper

Postby Qwerty343D » Fri Jul 15, 2016 6:35 pm

My very first mod :D

The Scrapper is the wreckage on an Engi ship that died thirty years ago, However, the targeting computer wanted to continue, and thus: the Scrapper was born.

The ship starts with a level eight drone control, no weapons, and no O2, because of this, the ship is an auto.

Constructive criticism is appreciated.

Y'know, I wish I could do something interesting here. But instead: You're stuck with this.
Hey, You found me! Nice goin'!

Well from loading up the ship initially, I can see that you need a miniship icon and not just one of the achievement boxes.
The ship itself is an interesting concept but the fact that it starts with maxed out Drone Control and full reactor bars means I have less of an incentive to upgrade.

It is supposed to be a broken part of an Engi Cruiser so why does it suddenly have end-game equipment and drones? The Engi A could have used those ya know.

As for the equipment it has... all you need is the Slug Repair Gel and the Recovery Arm. The Reactor Booster is vendor trash, along with the Boarding Drone. But because the systems are maxed out already, there seems to be little point to getting as much Scrap as possible which is one of the things that wanted me to keep playing - What systems do I power manage, when do I swap the drones and where do I spend my Scrap? Those choices are removed and well I can't find myself flying the ship for very long.

So what I recommend: 7-10 Reactor Power bars, level 1 shields and engines, keep the drone slots and make Drone Control level 4 so you can at least power up the Combat Drone and Beam Drone and swap to defensive if needed.

Thanks for replying, It's been a while, and I've learned A LOT about Superluminal, I may remake it in the coming weeks for a better experience.
