Zoltan Cruiser

Zoltan Cruiser

I made a Zoltan cruiser without shields, an Ion Blast and two mini Beams. It replaces the Zoltan B.

If you have any tips, please type them in the chat.

Well it's a lot better than the Engi Flagship although I think enemy difficulty is tied to Weapons Power and Reactor Power.
And considering how it starts with Level 6 weapons, I'm expecting 2-shielded enemies in Sector 2.
Also, it should be mentioned that Level 6 weapons is very expensive and starting with it is not recommended.

So my suggestions would be to turn it down to a Halberd Beam and use an Ion 1 so you'd have 4-power being used but that'd make it similar to the Zoltan A

I do like the design though. Does it have a Clone Bay? Sometimes that can be overlooked by accident when putting in medical facilities.

Yeah someone needs to do some proper testing on that. I think the effect is overall negligible isn't it? Can one do low power teleport runs to keep enemy difficulty noticeably reduced?

You could easily mod a ship to survive on minimal power and systems (beefed up augments or hull repair). I've played many kinds and never noticed any real patterns, though the RNG can vary enough I can see someone getting that impression.

I don't know where this idea came from (station's job or old infinite mods?), but one of the devs once mentioned on reddit that the only thing that scales to player ships are asteroid field strengths.

How 'bout that? Is it to weak?
