I’ve posted a challenge with the utterly generic name of ‘Order combined arms fleet’ (challenge ref 4582793). The challenge itself is nothing special, but I was hoping to get some retaliations and forum feedback on the map.
What I’ve tried to do is create a scenario that absolutely doesn’t allow for spam and encourages balanced fleets. The map is called ‘anti-spam’. I’ve gone for 100,000 points and 250 pilots which gives a ratio of 400 points per pilot. There are no anomalies, but every cruiser weapon has a supply limit of 70 and all frigate weapons have a limit of 100, so it should be impossible to field a total spam fleet. Those limits might seem on the high side, but the idea isn’t to render CLs or missiles unusable; rather, to encourage fleets that use a variety of weapon types to get the job done.
So far I’ve only given it the briefest of tests, so I’d be interested to see what people think of it. Are the limits too high? Too low? Should some weapons get different limits from others? Should there be any limits on other modules?
Thanks in advance; enjoy the map.
