They are named and you assign the names. If you don't assign a name they get assigned a number to use for their name.

Oh please.

I made this thread for asking questions, not for "Furries VS MLP-fans VS the World" subtle holy wars. :angel:

I even forgot the question i wanted to ask >.<

I had to do a double take because I thought Mec had written "Ok Furies, shoo back in the barn." :oops:

Might have caught a little flak from Arinn in that event. :lol:

Ponies have a tendency to derail threads. xP No one expects the MLP inquisition I guess.

So to get BACK on topic while I resist the urge to comment further on the issue...


Wait this is a question thread that I can't comment or answer virtually any of the questions asked...

back on topic with a few small questions:

1, will modules stick out of the ship (i.e the hawkeye module manifesting as a tiny radar dish on the bridge) or will they be completely internal and therefore invisible?

2, if a fleet is stranded due to a supply ship being killed, will we have to have another admiral taking a supply ship to them, or can the supply ship do the job on its own?

modules are visible...otherwise they would be "options" ;)

fleets always reserve enough supply to crawl home.

Talking about supplies, I have a doubt about fuel and operational range.

The military starbases have a support range, but I am unsure about what exactly does that mean:

a) Fleets can only travel within its borders, spending fuel;

b) There is no longer "fuel" as we seen In SoTS1, and the maximum distance any fleet can go is its associated starbase support range;

c) Ships CAN go beyond its associated starbase support range, and starts to spend fuel after it leaves its range?


And I just remembered: Is the Cruiser Equivalent value of any given station a hard cap, or you can go beyond it, but sustaining some kind of penalty (increased upkeep, reduced effectiveness, etc)

ok... bad example...

what I mean is would a sufficiently small fleet on a sufficiently simple mission be able to operate without an admiral?

things like I wanna bring two cruisers from my shipyard to a frontline garrison, would I need an admiral for that?

I'm guessing you'll be able to transfer ships between fleets, but I believe a fleet (with an Admiral) will be the smallest (and probably only) unit of general ship use.

Okay, now I'm looking forward to that one awesome chance I have of sniping off a Leviathan whilst it is traveling to its escort fleet :twisted:
