I just checked it out, it fires ok, but the modules are messed up. The actual Command Fortress has a mess up in the communications array module placement as well. I think it could be worked out to still be a good idea but it needs some design changes to differentiate it from the weapon station. I also agree with Odie that the engine needs to be scaled down or removed and the docking bays fixed, I noticed these texture bugs on it, too. Just making observations and I like all the details of the ships to look the way they are supposed to. When I'm looking at this CF (the old one) and I see the module hanging out disconnected from the its other part it just looks bad. This is my first time noticing it but now that I do I wish I knew how to fix it myself but I wouldn't know where to start scratch. Right now I just wish that evac cells would work honestly.

What I noticed:

Module is way too big, can also see underneath it.

Texture bug in docking bay, similiar one for topside docking bay.

Communications array module angle 1

Communications array module angle 2

Other CF Communications array module misplacement.

I see, I will scale down the defence subsystem and move it further down in the Y axis to fix the size issue, the communication array, needs to be rotated 180 degrees it seems.

however you mention something about differentiating from the weapon station? the weapon station is being removed as it is... basically it will renamed fortress. no need to differentiate when there is only 1.

8 ions... well that I can fix... just gotta think where to place them, but in that case.... what weapon should I place in the top and bottom hardpoints?

Ah, see, I didn't know that the weapon station was being removed. That's kinda lame IMO just because I liked the weapon station its always the first ship you can get out with heavy ions, and I'm sure this new CF will be harder to get than a Battleship. Oh well I guess that just frees up more resources for other ships earlier on, we'll see how this effects balance as it goes. As it is currently I can get Engineering division by cycle 6 and have the first Battleship by cycle 16 depending on how well I've done with my resourcing... I like the new "no research points" system, it makes the cycles seem more realistic. If it takes about fifteen or sixteen "years" to get out that first Battleship, instead of like 25 as it was before, it makes more sense.

this thing has been updated, the nuke launchers are in place, gotta edit the build file to allow it to build the ammo.

all the hardpoints are done, for now it comes prearmed, I know how to make things buildable, but with sets specifically it just builds 1 turret and the other do not appear.

by the way for sake of my OCD it had to be evenly armed.. so it has 8 ion cannon turrets... I fixed 2 of the issues aediren mentioned about subsystems, gotta tweak a bit more still...

the only thing is the missie launchers, 3d wise I don't know where else to fit turrets to the model O,o so I made the missile launchers the build in weapon from stock, they fire really cool from tubes in the edges of the platform...

please try it and tell me balance wise what else I have to fix before I tackle the building sets and nuke missiles.

I tried it out again yesterday. It's got a lot of power thats for sure. It needs to be built from the Shipyard though and not the Mothership I do believe. Those missile launchers launch out from the edges really fast then disappear at the end of it's defense field, so not really sure how well those are going to work. All the other weapons seem to work fine though! I see what you mean by needs more tweaking, you can still see part of the defense module inside the docking bay. The communications array is fixed though, so that's good. So what you're saying is you don't understand how to make it build the full sets, so that's why it's pre-armed? Interesting, I'm not sure either but I'm sure someone will know. It is really damn strong though, especially if you can get those Heavy Nukes to hit. Well it's slowly coming together, I'd like to see those engines scaled down though, right now it kind of looks like a mini-Mothership. O.o

Yes, you just hit Z, target, and fire. They do a ton of damage, that's to be expected, considering the nuke itself is pretty fragile. I still feel like capital ships over-all just need more armor to increase battle duration, though. Especially with just how much damage these heavy weapons do!

The damage upgrade nerf will affect nukes too, lets see what that does... in a few weeks.

Removed the old command fort and made the sets buildable. Will fix the script for the entire sets to be created instead of just the initiating weapon.

Please get rid of duplicate hardpoint names, the scripts won`t work like this. There are two of "weapon front 2" etc.
