Is the name “Battlestars” too confusing? (Must I change it? Add a "GATC’s " before it?)
So, the mod now.
The mod introduce two races:
The Confederation of United Planets (CUP)
The Locust Fleet of the Unknown Space (LFUS)
The two races are equilibrated between themselves but not with the other races (They are far more powerful)
The CUP use massively cannon and machinegun mounted on heavy battleship called “Battlestars”, supported by cruisers, frigates and fighters.
The LFUS use more missile systems and less big ship than the CUP, but with bigger armour.
Battles are inspired by the one of Galactica, with hundred of ammo filling the space.
An images of the “Alpha”
On the upper left (and at the start of this topic):
CUP StarFinder Class Battlestar (48 fleet points)
On the right of the Starfinder:
CUP StarBearer Class Battlestar (42 fleet points)
On the left:
CUP ShinyStar Class Cruiser (15 fleet points)
Role: Strike Ship
Below the second StarFinder:
BreakingStar Class Frigate (24 fleet points)
Role: Fighter Hunter
The tiny fighter:
Swarmer Class Fighter (2 fleet points (32 a squad))
Role: Strike Fighter
-2xFast tracking Machingun
-1xHeavy Missile Launcher
Each ship (beside the fighter) have 4 big plate of armour (For example: BreakingStar: 577.5 armour points each; Starfinder: 3025 armour points each) and 3 hull/reparation module with relatively low health (The StarFinder got a total of only 300HP) . Weapons inflict relatively low damages but with a high fire rate. (1 point each 133 for the machingun).
Most of the ship got “limited arc” weapons on each side and their front hull.
The current colour of the ship are not the final one if you prefer the white.
The exhaust are place-holder and are definitely not the one that will be used.
