[SHIP] Y-Wing Assault Bomber

Postby Kierany9 » Sun Dec 08, 2013 9:21 pm

Hey there. Kierany9 here with my second mod. Gonna keep the forum post short this time because I wrote a long-ass post before getting hit by a powercut. The Y-Wing Assault Bomber is a shieldless two-man fighter. Like the X-Wing fighter but with one more man. The Y-Wing has impressive weaponry, albeit unoptimized for battling against enemy craft. And also a pain in the ass to balance. Seriously, it was either ridiculously OP or horrible.

Gonna try this out. Looks interesting. Also, you should note what it replaces.

Ok, so I tried this mod and... I didn't like it. I died three times, once being shot down by a anti-ship drone, the other two having my drone control smashed, both my crew members suffocating because my O2 was shot and there wasn't a thing I could do about it. There is absolutely no way to avoid taking a hit with this thing, and if they hit your drone control, everything is going to get by. If I make a suggestion, making it start with cloak or having the assault cannon fire faster would make this more bearable, but as it stands right now, I just don't think it was very good.

Polite answer:
Yeah, the ship is very hard until you find more weapons. The Assault Cannon and Proton Torpedoes can't do much on their own. The X-Wing is similar to this ship but with less hull, different power settings+drones and starts with two Dual Lasers, which wrecks ships like there's no tommorow. I've buffed this ship a lot, especially in the weapons department. Proton torpedoes ate up power like crazy and the Assault Cannon's firerate was way too slow. I'll be uploading the link once I've tested it a bit.

Impolite answer:
Can't handle Ship Difficulty: Very Hard

EDIT: Much more bearable now

Code: Select all

-Reduced Assault Cannon's cooldown time from 12s to 7s
-Inreased Proton Torpedoes cooldown time from 14s to 15s
-Reduced Proton Torpedoes power consumption from 3 to 2
-Replaced Defense Drone II with Defense Drone I

Here's a question about the difficulty: Have you personally beaten the flagship with your ship?

Actually, that isn't a bad way to judge the difficulty of a ship. So far I've eased it a bit more and am able to beat the game with it.

Code: Select all

-Added Fighters Shields, which can be upgraded to level 2 at the cost of 250 scrap. Fighters Shields cost 50 scrap.
-Moved sensors to the front of the ship.
