Proposal: Spacecraft Equipment Expansion (and Equipping)

reached a quorum, final vote 1-6—jay

Adminned at 02 Jun 2008 22:30:40 UTC

Create the following pieces of Spacecraft Equipment:

  *Heavy Defence Laser (weapon): Size 3, Power 4
  A cost-efficient option for small craft armament.
 
  *Heavy Rocket Array (weapon): Size 30, Power 15
  An increasingly outdated but nonetheless effective large-scale weapons system.
 
  *Light Armor (armor): Size 10, Armor 5
  Cheap and effective, but not the best size investment.
 
  *Light Powered Armor (armor): Size 10, Armor 10
  Electromagnetic physics abuse make for a more powerful hull.
 
  *Layered Titanium Hull (armor): Size 30, Armor 10
  Despite being expansive, titanium hulls provide no more protection than much smaller counterparts.
 
  *Ion Drive (propulsion): Size 5, Speed 250
  A weak but compact method of propulsion.
 
  *Rocket Engine (propulsion): Size 10, Speed 500
  Rocket-propelled propulsion allows superior maneouvrability over more efficient options.

Add a Heavy Defence Laser, Light Powered Armor and Rocket Engine to the Awesome Deathship.

Remove all weapons and armor from the DDA Mothership. Afterwards, add a Heavy Rocket Array and Layered Titanium Hull to the DDA Mothership.

I’m trying to keep the DDA Mothership from being too superior to the Awesome Deathship by making it use outdated equipment. This also leaves room for other craft to be more awesome than it weapons-wise. This proposal makes it so new ships can have either a bad or good version of each piece of equipment, which should open up ship design a little more (maybe eventually we’ll have rules for using Exp to build own ships or something!).

imperial Shouldn’t the DDA Mothership have some kind of propulsion, like the Ion Drive?

I think it should be able to keep its Orbitus XVI thrusters.

Well, Rodlen, it looks like you’re single-handedly deciding the fate of this one.

against I would like the Orbitus to have its current weapons as well as a few new ones.
