LP AI command

Post by Kakaze » Tue Jan 12, 2010 3:44 am

And here is the AI section, based off of the old hammer, but smaller and meaner.

One medium?

I would make that one medium into 2 smalls. A medium on an AI command is a unique feature of the Hivers, who have strong DDs. The rockbugs are supposed to have weak DDs.
Zed's TARs (sample):
Fractious Allies -- Hiver vs. Hiver, with allies
Who Let The Bugs Out -- Hiver vs. Tarka and Zuul
Tarka Ascendant -- Tarka vs. Hiver and Zuul

the medium is on the bottom, the small is in on the top.... i just need to color my mounts differently b/c the scale is difficult to see between shots.

1 m/1 s would make it the most heavily armed de command section in the game btw, perhaps 2 s or 3 s would be better

Yes, it would.

If the hammerhead is 2 smalls, the AIC should be 3 smalls. If the hammerhead is 3 smalls, the AIC should be 4 smalls. But you can put 2 of those smalls right next to each other in place of the medium if it helps your modeling.

i'm just using a hex base for my turrets right now, so I can easily place one where ever it should go... i'm thinking the top might be the best.

Remember that they like really big guns, and really small guns. Mediums not so much, but to be honest "really big" and "really small" don't work very well on a DE.

that sounds like more votes for a powerful, robust spinal mount section... but i can remake this ai to have 3 lights if you like.

How much effort would it take? No need to spend a lot more time on it if there are other ideas out there. :)

Spinal DD, anything more than just a spinal mount *is* very powerful. ;) No other race gets anything but a spinal mount. One or two fixed light mounts extra would be ample to denote their preference for bigger guns.

Regardless, the preference for bigger guns really is meant for the larger, more quality-oriented hull sizes -- DNs in particular. The rockbugs don't really put a lot of effort into their DDs, except to minimize cost.

Aye -- lots of big, or lots of small. On the DEs it's kinda hard to tell that they like big guns but perhaps we could add in more small turrets. Not like the Liir, no, because these are cheap ships. Elsethread discussion methinks.
