Standardized Hiigaran Weaponry •••••(complete) Nakamura, Odie

Post by Nakamura on Tue Aug 27, 2013 12:10 am

To make editing/balancing weaponry easier, as well as to reduce the number of subsystem/build menu based grammar edits needed, I am going to "MODESTify" the weapons on the sentinel and weapon station as well as on the super capitals. With the exception of the super capital ion cannons, every ship will mount standardized weapons instead of having 10 different variants of weapons across different ships.


There will also be two removals: 

The long range autogun and the x6 long range kinetic cannon will be dropped due to performance issues they cause (very long range and quite high fire rate). It also looks silly how the bullets seem to maneuver as a side effect of the chance based tracking system.

Standardisation in this fashion makes perfect sense.

I think the removal of the long range weapons is also a good move — they don't fit the game at all.

Pre-built subsystems cannot be "modestified", however they have the same weapons assigned. 
Light shuttle, shuttle, Sentinel and Weapon station have been edited, just got to do nuclear standardization, so I need to make the vortex/battleship nukes identical with hammer cruiser/sentinel/shuttle nukes. The bigger nukes (CF, MS, ark) are going to remain separate.

Apparently some of the pre-built weapons CAN be changed to the desired modules, so that's what I'm going to do. 
When it comes to subsystems, less is more!

Task complete, however this is only an approximately precise job. There will be some minor cleaning to do later.

Odie added some changes to this, he got rid of the remaining long range autoguns and replaced them with kinetic cannons. Thanks for the aid!
