SotS is a weird gem. The game is one of the best examples of low skill floor, and a high skill ceiling because the base 4x gameplay is very simple, but the military side of things has all sorts of cool shit going on, and most broken things have some kind of counter, soft or hard. I wouldn't even consider Stellaris in the same ballpark as SotS.

ED multiplayer is trash and will continue to be trash until they stop using genuine P2P. Most "P2P" games actually aren't - one random player is secretly designated the host and their instance of the game arbitrates the session.

In a true P2P game like ED and most RTS, every player runs their own instance of the game with zero arbitration and just exchanges "suggestions" to the other players. Which is why ED multiplayer works so poorly. It has an always-online DRM system, and that acts as a limited arbitrator for multiplayer, but nowhere near enough for a stable, secure multiplayer. Hence you had people outright using Cheat Engine successfully online. ED's structure leads to glitchy not-really-synchronized shit that only works half the time if you're lucky.

The reason RTS games get away with P2P is because they are deterministic and lockstep - there is no randomization, and all clients must wait for each other to continue playing. This is why lag in RTS games manifests as freezing rather than rubberbanding, and it's why Sync Errors happen. This works well enough because they aren't immersive action games and is necessary because it drastically reduces their bandwidth. They are the only genre where P2P works.

ED should move away from it asap.

There's Battle At Procyon

Its set some time after the movie, when Jim has joined the Royal Navy, and has nothing to do with the story of the movie, it only borrows a few characters from it.

The game is about a war with a group of furries as Jim gets his first command, and is essentially a naval combat simulator set in that universe. Only restriction is that the ships are stuck moving in 2d.

If you know the original SotS, you will recognise the combat system since its the same people who made both.

Don't think of it as a traditional space combat game, think of it as age of sail frontier buccaneering, with broadside ships of the line, or maybe pre-dreadnought era naval dickswinging in the second world, that just so happens to take place in space. It's an enjoyable experience, if not an incredibly deep one due to being a two-man garage studio project under constraints time constraints from throwing together everything with sweat, grit and chewing gum. And a kinect for motion capture, I guess.

The gameplay is a bit iffy though.

In order to shoot your ships weapons you gotta point and click at enemy ship, each time separately for each salvo.

Oh and it won't bother telling you when your guns have reloaded, so it turns into a match of you clicking at enemy ship frantically over and over again till it is dead.

Or you could try boarding, but first you sohuld try and blow up enemy ships sails which are one of the things you can target with your guns.

4298bf No.13575747

>>13575379

Not quite.

You have the sidebar that shows you your ships weapons. It also shows you which guns are reloaded or reloading.

The reason you have to click enemy ships to fire a shot is because of the targeting system. The shot will be aimed at the pixel you clicked, which is how you target specific parts of your target, like rudders, sails, engines or gun decks, all of which have different effects on the target if destroyed. Sails are the most obvious, due to the big drop in speed and because they are very vulnerable, but shooting out the rudder of a man'o'war and leaving it unable to turn is also a good way to force it out of a fight and taking out the decks with the most firepower is a good way to leave an enemy helpless.

There's a ton of little things like that you can do once you get a bit of practice in.

As an alternative, you have a button next to the formations buttons, that fires all your guns at any targets they can find on their own, if you don't want to make useful decisions about where to fire.

I was there for round 2 and part of round 3, though not for round 1; 1 & 3 took place on the same server while 2 was on a different one in the interim. As I recall, it was a rough start of us getting more or less immediately given the whack-a-mole treatment by a tryhard slav autist with a suprecapital, jumping us and making a nuisance of himself because it's hard not to notice a faction of tens of people showing up out of nowhere. I don't know how far we progressed before everyone said fuck that noise and moved to a new server, which is when I joined in.

At that point, we once again set out into the absolute boonies to establish ourselves, with some logic block autists- bless their hearts- building an absolutely gigantic cubic mega-factory, which was to serve as the heart of an interim station while we figured out what we wanted as a home base. Said interim station expanded out into a bunch of flat catwalk drydocks and a mega-turret; ugly but functional. Initially, the administrators were very happy to have a sudden massive influx of people (I think we had 50 members, of which at least 40 were active and 20 religiously contributing in some way, either ferrying new people to our home in goofy shuttles, getting resources or engaging in a megaproject with said resources) and were gregarious suck-ups. Then, as the sheer enormity of our plans dawned on them- our nominal Great Leader, whoever that was, inquired about whether it'd be okay to make a Death Star in two docked halves around a space station and was immediately told 'fuck no!'- and their noses wrinkled at such antics as planet cracking at all hours of the afternoon to night by myself & others, the lamentation of a lost swastika ship (this was my bad, I was testing it as a potential power layout while I was feeling out how to work with the power cube system and it glitched out, flying into the void, and I naively didn't think they'd be flagrantly spying on our faction chat when I wept over it; I did somehow find it in the void later, though) and the more or less single-handed overloading of their potato server.

And then, if I'm not mistaken, autislav returned, because apparently he was a notorious shithead and cross-server dongmeister instead of a monoserver dongmeister and was of a mind to pursue us, but regardless another supercapital appeared on our doorstep to whack us in our formative stage, because reasons. The server crashed midway through the basically pointless engagement, since our home station was invincible with almost every ship docked and our superturret kept popping out of its gimbal (which I ungracefully shouted about, I still don't understand what glitched out) after which some people that were buzzing over his bridge as he single-mindedly shelled the station (maybe hoping to get player kills for a very slight nudge towards home station vulnerability) got stranded outside their ships. A couple had the idea to bump his ship with some little tug-tier ships so he couldn't immediately jump back in the core block and nuke us if he happened to not get as fucked over as some of us did, at which point we were admonished while the admins teleported autislav back into his ship while we had to eat shit and slowly jetpack back.

cd1130 No.13576065

>>13576061

The whole time autislav is talking mad shit, cursing like a sailor and linguistically wiggering it up with his favorite interspersings of 'lol' and 'bitches' while we argue with the staff over the favoritism, at which point they start admonishing us for cursing in their 'E for everyone server, there are children here :^)' with an insufferably smug self-awareness of what they were engaging in with this farce. Some of us, including myself, continue to specifically curse them out and demand they act as their position demands in equal enforcement of the supposed rules- out of spite far more than any faith that they'd be anything other than dumb cunts- and then get dunked out of the server with kicks & bans. Afterwards, we leave the server, which falls into shambles from the amount of strain & damage we'd done to the servers and which this event had presumably done to the people that could tolerate twilight hour lag but not fagmins, and suddenly they no longer had a playerbase.

Round 3, much the same starting out, except we'd returned to the first server which was quite receptive to the large increase in playerbase and had been looking for an excuse to remove autislav for a long time now, which they did. There are some large-scale construction operations of a home station in the middle of nowhere as was our habit, some grand theft auto, I made a ship and then couldn't get in as the blueprint corrupted & the game crashed for some unidentifiable reason that killed my desire to start over constructing it, and bickerings with a different tryhard faction of unfun shitters bent on autismblocks PvP. Then somebody logged into one of the admin accounts after testing it out of curiosity and finding they had NOT registered their name as exclusively theirs and had no password for the server specific name login either and all hell broke loose as the anon responsible spawned two Space Battleship Yamatos and went on a rampage, registered the admins' name, and then left with the damage done.

tl;dr we attempted to engage in minor mischief and autistic construction projects but were forced to deal with far worse brands of autists & fagmins who wanted to wag their dicks and eliminate competition that was at such a scale it would eventually make them irrelevant, and in the process destroyed two entire servers that may never have recovered in the aftermath. I know the last time I checked one of them, guilty server number 2 no longer existed. I just wanted to make kitschy Iron Sky space nazi ships, but instead all that happened.

You forgot the part where they figured out where we were from.

The newest foray went pretty well from what I remember. Anons got shit form putting a massive swastika on the station, but thats not surprising. Some fag came because he wanted to test out his ship. He got a face full of the main gun and fucked right off.

Starmades alright I guess, I hate how its all based on the amount of blocks you can shove inside a ship.

cd1130 No.13576279

>>13576183

If it was just the number of blocks, it'd actually be more tolerable, since you could plop whatever wherever. The problem is that they half-assed having a component design system by making everything about groups of the standard 1meter-by-1meter block keyed to different functions, designed such that power systems have particular demands (namely, every block must increase the cubic volume of its group of blocks or else it is essentially wasted from a standpoint of efficiency, making for various funky skeletal shapes that demand ship shape be designed around them) and weapons demand to be placed & grouped together in particular fashions as disproportionately huge conglomerations of primary, secondary and maybe tertiary blocks to get something actually effective. At the same time, some block placements simply don't matter at all, like thrusters; perhaps as a result of this, the simplistic trade-off tuning system of acceleration and maneuverability on different axises combined with turning radius getting not insubstantially and arbitrarily worse as dimensions increase means that your ship will either maneuver like a brick or take a year to get up to speed, which due to the engine being unoptimized dreck was something like early WW2 monoplane speed, hardcapped. If you're being optimal about it, some kind of featureless deathcube is probably the best thing you could ever construct. Unless your design is supercap scale, there's neither reason to have more than the barest and solely player access-centric interior, nor can you afford to incorporate one anyways, so everything is just a solid mass of intermingled stuff with a corridor along each axis (at most) to four access hatches leading to the ship core.

It's funny you say that cause the only reason Fdev can still milk the game is cause of the multiplayer. Half of the content in the game (arguably more) is generated by the playerbase and they are the only reason players come back between updates.

And it has gotten better, wings lets you create instances with up to about 100 if you really try, but at that point you're making the amazon servers scream mercy and everyone ingame will notice delays. I'm hoping with squadrons the guild carrier ships will be an instance anchor point for anyone in the guild or perhaps a way for someone with great internet to mark themselves as a host and more traffic be loaded onto them when necessary. It's a shit way to do multiplayer but there are ways they can improve it drastically if they spent the time.

although if they'll spend any time besides minor improvements to it is the question, fuck multicrew needs work

Apologies for not getting to you earlier anon, 8chan died and by the time it came back I had other priorities of things to jump back to & forgot to check back here entirely. To keep myself from having to either plumb back through a fair few videos or else reference things you might not be able to readily find, as well as emphasizing the sheer progress made in even the earliest steps by the lone frog, I'll mostly use the very first four numbered gameplay videos at the bottom of the official channel as references through summary, which you can check over in the relevant videos (very simply titled Gameplay #01-04, a format that is then abandoned for devlogs accompanied by ship reviews and a couple 'Skywanderers Presents' for major feature framework additions in the form of ringworlds, tank control battletech mechs+oversized player control style gundams, and hovercraft) if it please you. Apologies in advance for the volume, I'll let the subject rest with just the one textwall in two or so posts.

First, from video 1: construction at first appears to be nothing special as he demonstrates the placement of standard 1x1m blocks of different shapes. This swiftly changes as he moves to an interior door, which is demonstrated as completely player constructed; it consists of a rail on which the door moves, the thin door itself, and slightly less thin wall blocks that the door noclips into by design. The door itself is operated by a button, the two of which are visually linked with a simple click-and-drag function rather than the traditional cumbersome logic menu. Presumably, said logic menu will also make an appearance for when it is more useful than the spartan setup, but this is a nice change. More complex logic is physically existent in the form of circuit panels using the stud system- basically a lego block surface that can be applied to blocks, which can then play host to certain function panels or small greebley detail blocks- and is demonstrated with an automatically linked exterior hatch & delayed elevator. This uses the same click-and-drag system to link & define functions, and is neither as troubling to the uninitiated as a naked logic menu or god forbid gigantic computer circuit redstone, nor is it as invisible as the former or as hugely physically cumbersome as the latter. Shows off the stars, extolls them all as 'real' which won't seem too convincing just yet, then demonstrates a larger cargo door and then a holomap. Said map shows what appears to be a 1:1 scale galaxy, eventually zooming into a more reasonable galactic cluster. Shows off some bland interiors of the freighter test ship, then starts moving towards his target, coming up to 3 kilometers per second before video end.

In short, a very quick look at the spartanly simple but still reasonably versatile logic functions, a very long sought after granular construction aspect for detailing and the ability for segregation of what should be smaller & larger pieces, the ability for a fair degree of block overlap to create some interesting shapes, and a hint of the sheer optimized scale. When others in the genre have biplane to monoplane tier KPH counts for space ships and jet fighters, having a kilometer per second scale of speed is very encouraging.

Video 2, dubbed Exploration: frog begins rapidly traveling towards a space station, at 40,000 kilometers out. Converting to hyperdrive mode, the ship rapidly begins to accelerate from tens of kilometers per second to hundreds until capping out at one megameter per second. The relative speed of approach to the ring of the gas giant the station is hidden in- a planetary ring which is very much to scale as the approach demonstrates, with the only possible gripe being a transitional pop-in of the ring's asteroids, excusable for a pre-pre-alpha at the presumable beginning of publicized development one year ago- and then docks, a process which is neither the overly easy Starmade style tractor snap-on nor an unautomated simulative system that demands perfect alignment, but instead an autoaligning system that demands reasonable initial accuracy, but then will very slowly maneuver itself into place. He then demonstrates the artificial gravity system, with a sliding switch console dictating how high or low it is.

In short; things are apparently very big and very optimized. You can normally have one or the other in boxel games, but it appears to presently have both.

The first of the videos and the channel, apologies, ought to have linked the first one in the first post.

Video 3, he shows off the stud system and the smaller bricks, as well as what can be placed with this system. The display is mostly just some modular seating, verging on decorative stuff, but it gets a better showing in the next video as to how important it is for creating control panels, and in later construction videos as to how sheerly robust it is for detailing. After that, he goes on to showcase an early version of turret construction, which is painlessly simple and involves merely the configuration of two rotator blocks & their connecting parts, a gun, a camera block, and a logic panel & console with the correct links to control it from the camera's perspective, although you can also manually control the turret with or without a camera simply by operating the rotators/turret body. The following weapon demonstration is mostly meaningless, as there is no developed system at this point- later videos will show multiple gun barrels on top of each other if I recall, but blessedly in the lack of a developed weapon system there's neither an Empyrion style static weapon collection or a finnicky Starmade algorithmic block group system, and seemingly no priority for there to be one before more important underlying hard engine work is done- but his chunky turret designs are kind of neat to look at, Ig guess.

In short: itty bitty blocks a fraction of the 1x1 standard go on lego studs. They're neat. Turrets aren't a pain in the ass to contrive on the mechanical or logic level. That's also neat.

Video 4, the stud system gets a far more useful showing off through the construction of a holomap operation console. The robustness of the basic display consoles in giving whatever relevant information there is for whatever function block they're linked to is very evident. Three readout screens are shown, one analog and two holoscreens, showing some nice redundancy in visual & functional blocks. Afterwards, he constructs another new panel in the cargo bay, and shows off different command & switch types, sliding one of the bay doors by percents at a time. Then, constructs a traditional open/close switch with one input button & two output buttons, showing off that the doors are properly independent functions as they open & close out of sync til her resyncs them. He briefly shows off a rotating embarkment ramp, which moves only so far to a restricted stopping point, then shows off some very basic slide switch use on a rotating brick & slider. Not to do anything useful, just to show off how it can be used. And then a laser sensor that activates when a player directly interferes with it, which he uses to spin a chair.

In short; stud system proves to not just be a meme function for detail blocks but is useful for making very dense function block & logic groups, said function blocks seem to be focused on meshing with as many other things as possible in simplistic enough fashions that it's trivial to retrofit, and in spite of the seeming simplicity the function blocks are still quite customizable and easily so.

Those first four very early dev videos are what made me click more around the channel, though I skipped past some of the very feature specific devlogs at the time for the slightly flashier stuff like the TIE Fighter construction video which showcases the excellent constructional functionality from start to finish, particularly the fact that there is no 1x1m construction grid- granular/stud blocks are built & fitted directly on top of other granular blocks unlike Starmade and others, thin walls don't magically take up phantom space like a full block which in spite of how simple it sounds is a huge advance to shaping, especially when combined with the allowance for block overlap under various circumstances- as those first four were already quite encouraging in showing the developers' rather clear ethic of getting the foundations laid before moving on further. There's absolutely nothing resembling a game yet, and while it might sound paradoxical, this is actually exactly what I want to see; everything is hardline engine expansion work, with zero consideration for the survival gameplay (which would be increasingly agonizing to fit new things into or around) until such time as it is feature foundation complete. My strongest grievance with this genre is in the constant appearance of half-designed systems and stymied development followed by a drip feed of unrevolutionary extra things in survival mode, not meaningful ones, just new grindgates, half-finished biomes, or a handful of new items that supplant the previous ones or languish uselessly. It looks like the frog is handily sidestepping all of these, for now at least.

It is a textbook example of wasted potential, instead of sticking to what they knew to do best, they fell for the multiplayer meme and we are now stuck with nothing more than randomly generated boxes in space.

They know exactly what they're doing with E:D. Update the game with a minimal team ever so slowly and use the funds made to continue to fund the rest of Frontier's projects. On multicrew they haven't written themselves into a corner at all it completely comes down to how much time they're willing to spend to fix their shit and combine systems instead of layering them on top.

Fuck the amount of coding autism that has gone into their galaxy generation engine and other certain parts of the game demonstrate they are capable, they just have a habit of splitting their ~100 team up and having half of them work on something super intensive like the character creator or previously their airless planet tech and then leaving the rest of the team to provide content in the meantime.

Multicrew was shit because Sandro demanded they implement a half assed implementation of the feature which was promised a year before because he has a hard on for keeping said promises no matter how crap the implementation, this is why they've dropped working on new shit to fix "core features" over the next year.

actually you're wrong it is a mix of everything. Players from the UK/Europe when they are the ones to start an instance will generally mean better performance in that instance. As well frontier's (amazons) servers actually process and check a whole bunch of shit including system information, active missions, unknown signal sources, npcs in your instance and other stuff. It's why when you get people making 100 player instances the entire playerbase notices a slowdown as the 100 player instance is pumping a huge amount of data through Fdev's servers.

Actually I think almost all p2p data between players is routed through Fdev's servers for checks and stuff before hitting the destination player.

Experiment with ship setups and pay close attention to what the enemy brings.

Most of the weapons have different strengths and weaknesses that make them ideal for dealing with specific kinds of enemies.

Missiles and kiting early on, but they end up next to useless once the enemy has PD.

Another advantage missiles have in the early game is that you don't need to upgrade your ships every time you get a better version of them. Missile Warhead and engine upgrades are applied to all ships with missile launchers.

Missiles make for terrible weapons for brawling or dealing with a ton of DD's, since they fire slowly and tend to massively overkill one target while leaving the rest unscathed.

Energy cannons (plasma/fusion/AM) are good against larger targets since they aren't too accurate and their projectiles aren't the fastest in the world, but they do good damage. Try to find the sweetspot, range wise, since they do most damage around the middle of their range, with short and long range reducing their damage.

Heavyy versions fire the same shots as the regular types, but in 3 shot salvo's and with much more range. Heavy AM is one of the best weapons in the game due to range and firepower if you can field enough of them.

Lasers are good for anti destroyer work, being accurate and their projectiles being fast, they can even hit incoming missiles or drones, but their damage is kinda lowish, so they take long to chew through cruisers or bigger targets. Once the enemy fields mostly cruisers or bigger, drop them for PD instead.

Massdrivers are shit. They hit hard but easily deflect harmlessly and have terrible accuracy. Use alternatives if possible.

One thing massdrivers can do however, especially the big ones, is push the enemy. Hits from the big ones will regullarly send enemy cruisers spinning out of control and pushing away even dreadnaughts.

AP drivers are good medium to long range weapons, suffer little from deflection and are accurate. They don't hit too hard without neutronium alloys, but they make for decent basis weapons against all sizes of targets, though lategame they will be outclassed by energy weapons.

Beams are good heavy hitters, especially antiproton and messon, ignore the graviton and tractor unless you want to use their gimmick. Beams are aimed with perfect accuracy and are hitscan, so they can pick off the hardest to hit targets with ease, but their range is generally limited and only go in the large turret slots that you may not get many off. Some race, humans and Morrigi mostly, get cruisers that can field a ton of them, and a cruiser with 5 messon beams can kill practically anything.

Emitters are lightning guns. They jump from target to target, within their range, good for hitting groups of missiles or desteroyers, but their rate of fire and damage is badly lacking. Medium and heavy versions are godlike destroyer killers, especially against groups of enemies, the weapon also fires like a beam, so perfect accuracy and hitscan.

Minor caveat, the arcing form target to target never takes it beyond its max range from the ship, so against missiles it tends to only hit the first missile in a salvo, so don't expect them to outpreform PD against missiles.

Heavy Beams are for anti dreadnaught work mostly. Some ship designs can make them effective against cruisers, but their usefullness requires micromanagement and falls of dramatically once you are at brawling range.

Some races, Liir and Morrigi, can fit an insane number of these guns on a single cruiser, using lancer or better beams, such ships can kill cruisers advancing on them before the enemy can return fire. Very effective, but requires careful use of formation and micromanagement of target assignment to be useful.

That should cover the basic weapons, there's also lot of gimmick weapons like the chakra things that scale their damage with armor, effectively removing the bonus of armoring ships, shield breaker cannons that do exactly what the name implies, even gravitic shields and deflectors that normally cannot be turned off, thumper rounds that fuck with enemy movement and so on.

4298bf No.13588479

>>13588324 continued

Defences come in 3 types, EW, the subtle kind, armor the less subtle kind and shields, the obvious kind.

Shields have a set amount of HP, depending on the type, when broken they remain down for an amount of time, depending on the quality of the shield, before being restored at full hp.

They are a great way to make your ships tougher against stray fire, but won't cut it if the enemy is focusing on your ships with real firepower.

They also tend to take damage a lot faster than the ship itself, since they are bigger than the ship and won't deflect anything.

Some shields, deflectors, disruptors and graviton, can't be broken no matter how much fire they take, but these types block only some certain types of attacks, depending on the shield. The most important is the deflector, which is immune to kinetic and missile damage, but has no effect on any kind of energy weapons.

Against all kinds of shields, prioritize hitting the targets bridge section, since the shield disappears when the section making it breaks.

Shields also require a section of your ship be dedicated to making the shield, so they will cut into the amount of firepower your ships have, and dreadnaughts are too big to be shielded, they can use deflectors though, and dreadnaughts cannot loose individual sections, so you can't just break the shield by shooting out its section.

Armor is your most important defence. It gives you a flat HP bonus to the section its on based on the armors quality, up to doubling the HP with adamantium.

Armor also improves the chance of incomming kinetic projectiles deflecting harmlessly, this scales up with quality and even low quality armor make massdrivers nearly unable to hurt you. The regular kind anyway, AP will also deflect, but not anywhere near as often.

Mirrored armor doesn't improve the sections HP, but gives a chance for lasers to deflect.

The last type of defence is EW. Jammers, wild weasels and the EW dreadnaught section.

Jammers make a sensor shadow around the ship, similar to big asteroids, stopping enemies from seeing what is under it on the tactical map, Its main function is to prevent missiles from homing in on any ship under the shadow.

Wild Weasels try to redirect enemy missiles that come nearby to themselves. If covered in PD they can protect an entire formation of ships from missiles and torpedoes. They also fill the tactical map around them with ghost targets, but this only works on players, not AIs. Both prevent the enemy from seing the number of ships in your fleets on the strategic map, making for easy decoys.

DN EW sections combine Jammers and Wild Weasels with another ability, they will redirect some of the missiles that target them back at the enemy. Not often, but it does happen.

Cloaking sections can also be used as a defence, but only the improved cloaking ones, as regular cloaking sections drop cloak when they fire, making your ship vulnerable.

Keep in mind that the AI with try to blindfire at the last place it has seen shots from your ships coming from, so keep your ships moving.

Stealth armor makes your ship invisible beyond visual range, so only to the tactical map, and does nothing once the enemy has a ship close enough to spot you visually. It doesn't give any deflection chance or HP either. Its only real use is strategically, as it lowers the range enemies can spot the fleet on, on the strategic map.

Advanced Sensors can spot cloaked ships, but not stealth armored ships nor beat jammers or wild weasels. DN EW sections also include Advance Sensors.

Personally I prefer to always have at least one ship in every fleet with advanced sensors, but the section is fragile and nearly unarmed, so don't put it on the frontline fighters.

PS

One last thing I forgot was Torpedo weapons. They come in 2 types, nonhoming, which work like a cannon with really long range, usually doing only very little damage, and the homing kind, which does increasing damage the longer it has travelled and do limited splash damage. AM torpedoes can hit insanely hard, allowing a ship with enough of them, to kill enemy cruisers, if they don't have too much armor, with one salvo. Liirian Assault/Barrage cruisers are very good for this kind of tactics, but it requires a lot of micromanagement of your targets or they will overkill the first thing they see and be left unable to shoot anything else for the next 30 seconds, just like missiles.

The homing torpedoes can be shot down, like missiles, but they are a lot tougher and thus harder for enemy PD to take down. Not sure if wild weasels can redirect them either.

The gimmick variant of the homing torpedoes does its damage over a fairly large area, but this is rarely enough to splash over multiple cruisers.

EMP torpedoes shut down enemy ships, the bigger the target the shorter the time, and come in guided and unguided variants.

4298bf No.13588575

>>13588479 continued

There's more gimmicks of different types, like snot missiles DF racks and the crazy OP Absorber sections and so on, so these posts are by no means everything you need to know.

The wiki has all the hard stats on ship sections and weapons. Keep in mind that the raw data doesn't show how well different weapons work or how good turret cover for different sections is. Only experience can teach you this, hence the importance of experimenting.

http://wiki.swordofthestars.com/sots1/Main_Page

As far as design advice, there's no hard rules. Many of the weapons are useful against only certain types of enemies and some defences can render certain weapons all but completely useless, so you always want to consider what the enemy is bringing when you design your ships.

As for fleet composition, this depends on what the enemy brings, again, but there are some guidelines here. CNC ships are a must in any fleet you want to have anywhere near a fight. CNC not only determines how many ships you can field, but also what order they arrive on the battlefield in. You can change the order in the middle of a battle if you want to, but only if you have a CNC on the battlefield. If you don't the ships in your fleet will arrive in a completely random order.

Consider keeping a space CNC ship in fleets, just in case the one on the field gets shot.

Repair and tankers/refinery ships are a must in any fleet that isn't sitting on one of your own planets, since it will otherwise be unable to repair or refuel. I prefer to keep more than one repair ships in any fleet if possible, how many depends on how tough my fleets frontline ships are and what race I'm playing, since some races get more repair points than others from their repair ships.

Refineries are better than tankers, since they can eat planet resources to produce fuel in neutral systems, giving your fleets FAR more range.

DN support sections do the job of both repair and refinery ships, but cost far more than needed for the role. They are useful for hiver players though, as a single DN only costs twice the gate allowance of a cruiser,

The frontline of a fleet depends entirely on what I expect them to fight, but I always put a few more ships into a fleet than it can field, in case of ships being destroyed in battle.

Lastly, keep your races style in mind. Human ships tend to be allrounder, but are slow and a bit fragile if unarmored, liir ships have insane manuverbility but barely any weapons bigger than the smallest turrets and next to no HP, but they get really good specialists, like their barrage/blazer ships which carry more torpedoes and heavy beams than nearly anyone else, zuul ships are fast but fragile and tend to have a ton of guns, tarka are speedy, have tough and heavily armed bridge sections, but vulnerable and squishy engines and aren't too great at getting tech, hiver ships are flying bricks covered in guns. They accelerate slowly, have a decent top speed, more guns than nearly anyone and very tough ships, but they have some of the worst odds for getting tech, and morrigi ships are OP as fuck, but really pricey.

They multiply if you leave them alone.

Swarmers are pretty easy to deal with if you have enough PD. Alternatetly, lasers and small emitters will also make short work of them.

Railguns are easier to aim from cruiser sections, but a DN works fine, especially for bombarding enemy DN's. Don't be afraid to leave the DN behind while other frontline ships advance on the enemy, those guns have a crazy huge range so it can still bombard enemy ships without being close enough for the enemy to shoot at it.

Don't underestimate a good photon torpedo spam. They have good range and RoF. Fire Control section is a good combo, since accuracy is vital.

Also, do note that various lasers and beamers are not always just direct upgrades. Some have quirks.

IIRC, X-rays lasers have far lower reflection rates.

Beamers are great for anti-fiter, since they are hitscan. They have shit for range, so good for brawling.

Guys, I just had a dream I owned a clunky but functional space ship, eventually got a license for it, then took it up into the sky and went to space. After that I explored the great unknown for hours and it felt amazing. What is a game that lets me experience this?

I'd also take a game that allows me to pilot a ship and walk around said ship. Really, I just want to feel like I'm flying a ship in space.

Your best bet is probably Elite Dangerous, sadly.

Not many games are like you're describing. Space is pretty neglected.

Which is all part of the Jewish ploy to prevent us from pushing for development of space, which would progress our civilization and help us become a Tier 1 species - which they don't want because we'd have a post scarcity society and at that point money =/= power.

We have the technology to take ET home but we'll never see it, potentially hundreds of years, if not millenia.

Huh for those who don't want to watch the whole thing.

It's going to be mostly combat focused. The goal is to take over the solar system, there are three teams made up of both npcs and players (Red, Blue, Green) with roughly 100 players per serb as the end goal. Once the solar system is conquered by a team (by taking over bases, infrastructure and supply lines) the round will end and it will reset. At the moment only the position of bases and space stations will change between rounds. Ships available range from small interceptors to a variety of cap ships. It looks like the player can fly all of them although I'm not sure if they will all be solo piloted by a single player. The carrier class cap ship will be able to spawn smaller vessels.

Wonder how long a round will average out to be.

Reuenthal's death was seriously heartbreaking. While Yang's death was well done as well, I felt like he should've logically died a season or two before. His levels of plot-armor were unreal.

I was pretty sure that it was Lang going rogue acting for Rubinsky's best interest that framed Reuenthal, the first time Lang tried to frame him Oberstien scolded him and told him to lay off. I'm not really sure if he had a hand in it. That being said it was still Reuenthal's own fault, it was only a matter of time until his ambition consumed him.

Mittermeyer lost all his friends.

But he did everything for the Kaiser so that his actions would still be seen as pure as possible, wouldn't that justify it? He knew his role and played it. He went down hated by his comrades as a scheming snake but he was the most selfless of them all, How many times did he proposed his own sacrifice to the Kaiser in order for them to achieve success?

I found Julian's plot armor through the show to be much more annoying than Yang's, Yang was advertised as some sort of miracle worker so I could believe the bullshit but Julian just pulled shit out of his ass.

The answer to arrogance is not lecherous amorality. Complete amorality is the same as immorality. As a people and nation, where will you stand after you've succeeded but lost all possible self-respect? Who will support and love a recklessly pragmatic Kaiser after the war? Incursions are inevitable.

I'm not saying Oberstein did everything wrong, just that he did a lot wrong that could've been done differently.

>>13655286

You're right about Julian's plot armor but I still consider Yang's more egregious. The whole republican side developed some mad plot-armor with each passing season.

That was the reason why Oberstien would do the dirty work and take all the blame anon, because he could live with people hating him but they couldn't be hating the kaiser. Oberstien drew the entire hate of the empire on himself so that it didn't go after everyone else

The opposite, really. You can look into the history of Infinity for the full story on that… the dev time so far has mostly been technical implementations for shit like working netcode/hit detection, collisions, various optimizations. (the stuff that allows a newtonian, no speed limit flight model with hundreds of players and npcs in a server in a real scale solar system with real scale planets to actually work)

this is the first battlescape patch with significant new gameplay elements, supposedly all done in the last month or so.

Now that they have a lot of the technical stuff out of the way i'm hoping the subsequent patches are additional rapid gameplay additions and improvements

It's perfectly playable with a controller. Wouldn't do high end pvp with one though.

You may run out of button combos so having a keyboard nearby to press the odd thing you can't fit to your bindings.

You're not missing out any Frontier approved content if you play solo. But a lot of the more interesting stuff happens among player factions and groups. There are plenty of player groups who are non combat oriented too. Group Expeditions are pretty fun.

I've had Helldivers on PC for a while now. If you like Alien Swarm or Magicka, you will probably like Helldivers. It's pretty good.

If you do end up buying it, don't bother getting the pistol DLC, it's fucking garbage. Some of the others are of questionable use. Terrain Specialist however is considered mandatory to the degree you will often get kicked from high level missions on snow maps if you don't have it.

Star Citizen will be shit for multiple reasons, but the main one is that it will be style over substance. Instead of building the game from GAMEPLAY and not flashing lights, the game will be a nice lit up turd and not much else.

If you honestly believe that any of these videos coming from CR are representations of the final product you have not seen what Ubisoft/Bethesda releases, or even NO MANS SKY.

Plus there's currently a fun bug where those markers for the surface based points of interests don't actually show up in your cockpit so you have to stop and land every few minutes to see where the fuck you are in relation to where you're trying to go.

That specific planet in the videos is still off limits in the real game, but beyond that and the fact their play-through was amazingly bug free, yes that is pretty much what you can do in game right now.

FD has shown they can't. The recent Thargoid "invasion" disaster is proof enough. Anyway, Elite is now simply the pet project used to milk forumdads to fund their real games. Elite is too far gone to be salvageable.

But how could you make a game about submarines in a medium that makes all ships impossible to hide?

There is no realistic way to hide any kind of spaceships in space. Especially if they have to be able to be able to move in an even remotely useful way. Its like trying to hide in a small room with nothing to hide behind. in the dark while being covered in 1000 watt led lights.

Corporate warfare in a Kardashev 2 civilisation inhabiting our solar system would be awesome though. Millions of warships. billions of soldiers fighting over trillions of habitats. It could be a sweet setup for an MMO/elite hybrid where the player can command whole fleets.

>medium that makes all ships impossible to hide

Answer to that is autism and funny enough realism.

Make battles take place over hundreds if not thousands of kilometers. You need to be reliant on your sensors and other instruments to judge where a target is and where it is going while filtering out all other forms of radiation and signatures you may encounter. Space really is a natural ECM blanket with the shit you are likely to encounter from rogue asteroids, cosmic radiation, solar flares as well as even eruptions of water vapour into space from moons, frankly there's fuckloads of phenomenon that could be incorporated into a game that would make it an ideal submarine style warfare game in space. In theory it wouldn't be that hard to run silent or even become a shadow of another vessel and unless you know exactly where to look you won't likely find a ship that's trying to be sneaky until they are directly on top of you.

I read a book a couple years back and there was a battle in space and it looked like this, they were trying to spot other ship by watching light or something refracting on their hull, otherwise they were blind. It was pretty cool.

Noice. What's the name of the book?

22c2fc No.13694287

>>13694157

Why look for light refracting off the hull, and not the hull that is 270 degrees hotter than the background around it? Space is damned cold after all, and you don't want your crew to freeze to death, right?

There also the drive plumes. The giant cone of plasma coming out the back of your ship every time you use your engine. Especially since games loves to have ships that can accelerate at a speed of more than 1-2cm per hour and also like their kilometer long ships. The thrust of the engines of those ships would regularly crawl into the megaton range. Its quite literally about as subtle as dropping a city buster nuke every second your drive is accelerating or decelerating.

Stealth in space just doesn't work.

You really don't get that many course corrections in space, it would be an extremely short window of opportunity and once it happens you have to project what the likely course is on the limited data you would get.

Evochron Mercenary is a Space-Flight Sim. It has grind since you start with jack fucking shit. You can do 95% of everything that SC claims it will do. Its only \$20. You have to buy it since no one bothered to make a pirate version. If it is "too old" then there is Evochron Legacy, which is basically the same thing but with more.

Based on my gameplay so far, i concur.

Although i have noticed that having a rocket launcher as a secondary for anything bigger than an impaler is always a good choice.

Also that one gun that shoots high caliber explosive rounds is pretty neat.
