roleplay of SW Empire in C#
« on: August 15, 2019, 01:33:38 PM »
Hi guys, I want to role-play Star Wars empire in C# but im not sure what techs for weapons should i follow? Any ideas as to what energy weapons should i choose to make it as close to SW as possible? And how tie-fighters should be designed?:)

Lasers/Particle beams for the energy weapons I would guess, and TIE fighters should be the smallest, cheapest, least armoured design you can get with a low maintenance timer and an even lower deployment timer.

And, of course, two Ion-tech engines.

I wasn't intentionally role playing the empire, but I did do a playthrough once where I pretty intentionally used Star Destroyer like ships as my primary warship.  BIG (like 100,000+ tons) , lots of lasers, hanger space for fighters, shields.  incredibly inefficient, but they were effective.  The suckers were nearly indestructible.  One once took a direct ramming hit from a fairly large ship and it survived.

You could perhaps create monsterous size battlestations inspired by the death star. http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php/topic,1135.30.html this thread is inspiring in my opinion.

I guess big ships is the way to go.
How viable are large ships on low-mid tech levels? Lets say 20k-40k tons?

In my opinion at low tech levels multipurpose large vessels are not so viable. However dedicated large vessels are.

What I really want to try to field is a Victory-class, lots of missiles, some laser defense and a hangar with good armor and shields
How large should it be? Lets say at Ion-magneto-plasma level?

SW ships are really, really, really huge. You can make multipurpose ships at low tech levels, they just become massive and slow. But that fits with the Star Destroyer concept well, I'd say.

Go for 50,000 tons. Forget about overhauling, have enough MSP that the ship will survive a decade without overhauling and then scrap it as you replace it with a new one. You'll have to have massive shipyards and definitely improve your shipbuilding rate, as well as use construction factories to fabricate all the components. Otherwise it'll take too long to build.

It's over your 50,0000 ton limit, but it's under 100k and has most of what the wiki says the Victory class was armed with. Most of it is ion-era tech. Wiki says the victory class had under-powered engines so I made it slower than I would normally shoot for in ion age.

EDIT: the quad 20cm turbolasers are really just 10 20cm lasers. Actually turning 20cm lasers into quad turrets was taking up a huge amount of space.
