firstly thanks very much for the active community on here, some really good advice!
So I have some spare time over the holidays while I’m off from uni and I’ve just got GSB in the humble bundle and subsequently got all the DLC, so I thought about making a little mod for it, especially since GSB looks relatively easy to mod. Had some ideas, Warhammer 40k: Battlefleet Gothic, Halo or Mass Effect but 40k and ME had a massive lack of top down ship images around (I’m not particularly good at the gfx) but Halo had quite a few (and Google Warehouse many more). So am trying to make myself a bit of a Halo mod!
General Ideas: No shields, lower cost, increased armour and hull integrity, low power weapons except MACs and railguns.
Fighters: Shortsword, Longsword, Sabre (only UNSC ships allowed shields), perhaps a space Vulture varient
Frigates: Charon Class Light Frigate, Paris Class Heavy Frigate, Gorgon Class Destroyer, Refit Station
Cruisers: Halcyon Class Cruiser, Marathon Class Cruiser, Phoenix Class Colony Ships (refit), Orbital Defence Platform
General Ideas: Slightly lower armour, high cost. Shields have high strength but low resistance. Weapons are powerful.
Fighters: Seraph, Banshee, Phantom
Frigates: CPV Destroyer, SDV Heavy Corvette, DAV Light Corvette*, CAR Frigate*
Cruisers: CAS Assault Carrier, CCS Battlecruiser, DDS Carrier*, CRS Light Cruiser*
The covie supercarrier is tempting but would end up being over 5000px long! Same for High Charity. I’m using a scale of 5m = 1px
*No visual appearance in canon.
Any ideas or input?
Also… I’m getting a crash when I try and start a battle, crashes on the loading screen into the fight as I try and test out the Charon Light Frigate. Nothing is appearing in the crash log either. Any ideas?
P.s. Merry Xmas for tomorrow.
