After staying out of trouble untill i got some new weapons and dreads i decided to start a war in my latest Tarka game:

My fleet is approaching an enemy Liir fleet in deep space:
Image

My first dread of this game in action:
Image

Though the cruisers shouldn't be underestimated either:
Image

My standoff ships in action:
Image
(i know the liir have great PD coverage, but i will make sure that they keep PD in their small slots - if they field x-ray lasers in there, they can become a nasty surprise (and the standoff ship was designed for a war with the Zuul, not the Liir, but things changed on the map. The design is a try at overwhelming PD, which should work against races otehr than liir))

The Liir fought bravely, but had no chance:
Image

On a side note - the Liir did actually more damage than i thought they would - they had the torpedo brigde on every ship and my PD got a lot of them, but the overwhelming numbers of torpedoes made sure some got through

I have a quick question. Is it possible to disable the tactical overlay in combat for taking screenshots, like you could in Prime? I looked through all the hotkeys and couldn't find one listing it.

Control-H I believe will do the trick.

More from my Tarkas game:

My dreads take "close to attack" quite literally:

Battle Cruiser takeoff:

And finally the first Leviathan:

(my fleet composition is Flagship command + 2 battlerider carriers (each with 1 patrol and 2 escort wings - for good PD coverage and some offence) + battle cruiser carrier + leviathan + 2 assault shuttle cruisers)

Some nice additions ! I'll have to capture some of my own and throw them up. This game is incredibly beautiful, I still find myself pausing the game and just looking at the still life of a some hectic battlefied moments.

What's the purpose of the Flagship? Since the LV has more CP anyway, couldn't you just have taken a Blazer or Barrage?

For the joy of having a flagship. Its a fan favorite from SotS Prime and some still like to use it.

Or that LV's are far more expensive than DN's, even Flagship DN's. Cost factor is important sometimes...

Cost being important a lot of times. Not to mention the tactical speed differences and such depending on the race involved. Zuul Flagships for example also get a bunch of boarding pods - where as their LVs don't.

That's kinda moot when the fleet already has a LV.

TBH i totally forgot that the LV acts as a command ship as well :p

I often abandom games before LVs become available and thus i rarely have them...

Its been awhile but here are some pics I took with a joint op with Resok (Loa) and me (Tarka) killing off the last of the Locust in his back yard. Long trip for me 60-70 light years to haul my ass to help out. Before going back to killing each other (long ass cold war thanks to me dragging my feet) Enjoy!
