teukros Posted August 9, 2004 Share Posted August 9, 2004 What is the computer doing? and how is it doing it? I recently changed the starfighters so they are a little more realistic. They're still underpowered, and they're still ridiculously cheap (and the T.I.E. Defender's "hull" value is too high), but they're a lot better than before. I've posted about it in the "Damned Corellian Corvettes" and "Just a little bit too realistic... maybe" threads over in Gaming Stories, but briefly, here are the numbers I'm using for the starfighters: Res. Mat/Mnt Hull/Shield Speed/Agility Las /Ion /Torp T.I.E. Bomber 1 6/ 6 36/ 0 7/ 7 20 / 12 / 32 T.I.E. Fighter 0 4/ 4 16/ 0 9/ 9 20 / 0 / 0 T.I.E. Interceptor 5 6/ 6 16/ 0 10/11 32 / 0 / 0 T.I.E. Defender 11 18/30 36/26 10/10 40 / 12 / 20 Y-Wing Starfighter 0 8/ 6 20/10 8/ 8 20 / 12 / 32 X-Wing Starfighter 1 10/ 8 20/10 8/ 9 32 / 0 / 16 A-Wing Starfighter 4 10/10 20/10 11/11 30 / 0 / 0 B-Wing Starfighter 6 14/16 40/30 7/ 7 32 / 24 / 48 The thing that's been blowing my mind is that now, the computer is building a ton of Escort Carriers... Right now, the computer is attacking the Bips (the Empire's main world in Sluis Sector, with six Construction Yards and three Training Facilities) with a small, cheap, and somewhat frightening fleet (Admiral Neva commanding): Two carriersFive X-Wing squadronsSeven Y-Wing squadronsFive Medium TransportsTen Fleet Regiments One of my little "police groups" of three Carracks couldn't touch that. I'm not really worried, because Bpfassh is protected with three Gencores, but if anything goes wrong the main Imperial Fleet is a long ways away. I can't wait for the computer to start hurling B-Wings at me... Put an overpowered Solar Ionization Reactor in between two cheap-ass engines and a couple of laser cannon, put a chair with a rudimentary flight control and targeting computer on top, and surround the (unpressurized!) pilot with enough armor plate so he doesn't fry in a tenth of a second... riiiiiiiiight Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
