Ships of The EIC (Criticism Welcome!)
« on: February 27, 2011, 09:57:05 PM »
Well, I've generated a Game today, and used the SpaceMaster to give all tech and stuff, I designed some weapons and components, then began to design some starships.  I did not entered in any combat yet but I'm trying to get ready when it come.  So I need help to know how will my ships fare against the precursors, the Invaders and also of any courageous NPR that ventures in my space.

So, Here they are: (Criticism is openly welcome.  Also these are only military designs. )

The first is the Cronus, it will be the Workhorse of the fleet.

I very much like Aurora, its my favorite 4X Game, an I've played a lot.
Also sorry if my english is bad, I'm Brazilian, I was struggling to write all this in here.

A couple of notes here from just a quick look.  You have a VERY high tech start.  You should not have any problems dealing with the precursors, ect.  The one place you might have a problem will be the npr.  It gets its tech and population based on where you are when it is created.  This means that in general it will be fairly close to your tech.  Sometimes ahead, sometimes behind.  So just watch out.

Your ships all have different speeds.  You will want to increase the speed of the bigger ships and make sure that the escorts that are designed to be part of a fleet are about the same speed or a little bit faster.  Anything more than that tends to be wasted.  This is not true for light ships you intend to scout around seperately of course.  A minimum fleet speed of 12-14,000km/s would be appropriate given your tech.

Your beam weapons need to be adjusted somewhat.  When designing them you need to change the capaciter level to match the power required for the weapon.  For example it looks like you have reasearched capaciter level 25, and used that on your 15cm lasers.  The 15cm laser  only needs 6 points of power to fire every 5 seconds.  You have a capaciter 25 on it.  This means that your ships need to provide 25 points of power for each 15cm laser, not the 6 that they should actually use.  If you take a little bit of damage and can only provide 24 points of power a turn (5seconds) then it will take 10 seconds to reacharge the lasers.  In addition you are putting to many power plants on your ships because of this.  Changing it will give you some more hull spaces to play with
