Ships of the Imperium Romanum

(1/7) > >>

Þórgrímr:
When Aurora gets stable enough to run a full campaign with, I intend to use it to flesh out my Roman universe and run a campaign with it. Right now I am going to use Aurora to design the ships that have been mentioned in my story The Siliconate War.

First up is the Imperator Class Carrier. So far mentioned in the story are The Octavianus and the Caesar. Also included is the C.A.G. attached and the typical Escorts. In the Roman universe a Cruiser is called a Quadreme and a Destroyer is a Trireme.

Since I don't have that starfire campaign anymore, thanks to a hdd crash, These are about 90% of what I can remember the Starfire eqivalents were. But don't quote me on that.  

So without further adeux, here are the Imperator and her escots the Gladius Quadreme and Scutum Triremes.

More ships will be added to this list as they are converted.

Erik Luken:
Hmmm... Couple things. With the 15k ton jump drive, you might want to add another 100 tons so you are at max capacity. Also, your designs have 5 replacement parts. This won't allow for very lengthy deployments. My combat ships usually run 15-20 spares, and survey vessels 25-30 spares. Allows for longer times between overhauls (which can get expensive and time-consuming). I also noticed your main offensive punch is the fighters. What are the designs on them?

I don't use the spare requirements or overhauls. Too tedius IMO.

How can you copy a fighter design like a ship design? or do you have to do it manually?

Yeah I wanted the carrier group to be like an American carrier and its escorts. I suppose I could always add another magazine.  :D

Erik Luken:
Easiest way to post a fighter design is when you create it, copy the text in the fighter design window. And with no spares, you might as well get rid of the engineering section, that's 150 tons right there.

As for fleets, mine have been designed around 1-2 carriers (when I get them), 3-4 missile ships (only missile launchers), 3-4 PA/Beam ships, and then 2x the total main ships in escorts. And with the new formation rules, I've split 2 out to each 30, 0 & -30 degrees off the main body at 60k km, and 1 scout at each quarter at 100k km.

Þórgrímr:
Here are the fighter designs. Hand copied them.  :D
