I have a couple of questions fort he modders that require general rather than specific answers.
1). How easy or difficult would it be to impose a “reinforcement cost” on Vaygr and Hiigaran squadrons (that is, charge the player RU for every model reinforced)? For instance: if an Interceptor squadron costs 500 RU and there are 5 models in the squadron, I would like to charge the Hiigaran player 100 RU for each Interceptor reinforced.
2). How difficult would it be to implement some kind of “emergency thrusters” for Taiidan and Kushan strike craft? Ideally, these thrusters would drain an energy bar (much like the Scout’s speed boost) whenever a dock command was issued, burning for roughly three seconds and improving speed by 50-100%. The energy bar would take the same amount of time to recharge as that of a Defense Field Frigate.
3). How difficult would it be to implement new weapon classes for Taiidan and Kushan Light Corvettes and Heavy Corvettes? Ideally, Light Corvettes would be strong against strike craft and moderately strong against corvettes; Heavy Corvettes would be strong against corvettes (weaker than Lance Fighters or Pulsar Gunships) and moderately strong against frigates.
4). How difficult would it be to allow Taiidan and Kushan carriers to “build” capital ships at 20% of the normal rate (that is, 80% slower than the Mothership) via hyperspace? There is precedent for this – Carriers can build a Sensors Array, which arrives by hyperspace.
Thanks in advance!
