Hi, I just got GSB and I’m having a blast with it. The game feels a lot like the best parts of Master of Orion (the space battles) taken out and adapted into it’s own game. Anyhow, reading the forums have just spawned more questions, so here are a few of them:
What’s the best plasma weapon to complement a beam cruiser? DPS figures seem to be all around the same, 10DPS. The light version seems to be fairly accurate, though even it misses against other cruisers occasionally, so I am leaning towards the longer ranged versions, though I guess I will have to add a few tracking modules to make sure they don’t miss.
Are Cruiser Beams better than Fusion Beams? Fusion Beams have a slightly high penetration value and range, while Cruiser Beams offer a bit over 5% more DPS and better tracking. I’d go with Fusion, but I wonder how much DPS I’ll wind up losing if I miss a lot.
Is there weapon DPS chart available anywhere? I’ve looked around the forums and on the GSB wikia without finding one. Perhaps I’ll go ahead and make one if there isn’t one online.
