Finally! The forums are back. And now I can make a couple of more suggestions.
One, T-3B and T-4B differentiation, if at all possible. I find that the T-3B has as much or more firepower than the "newer" design for a fair bit less. The two also seem to have similar specs. The way I see it, either there's gotta be a real difference, or one's gotta go.
While I'm ok with both being in the game, I will agree to them having more or less identical abilities, and their specs being extremely similar.
Second, increased accuracy vs. fighters and bombers of all laser/maser cannon weaponry on starships. Corvettes do their jobs fairly well. The trouble is with those ships that aren't corvettes (Enforcer, Immobilizer, Assault Frigate. etc.) that have laser cannons and still can't hit the broad side of a barn with them. I don't know if this plus creating reserve capacities will swing the balance of power away from fighters (I like this mod in no small part because of what fighters are capable of), but there's fighter dominance...and then there's fighter dominance. It's all well and good to have fighters that'll go down in one hit, but first you have to land that hit.
I do agree here. Enforcers were supposed to be quite good against fighters, and in game they're mostly useless unless it's a single fighter squadron.
Third, some kind of enhancement of the Marauder Cruiser, as I believe I may or may not have said before. At 1900 credits you could, with perhaps a general accuracy boost (vs. all targets), have some cheap but pretty good (if fragile) firepower. As it stands right now it seems to be useless. I, however, do not believe this is the intent. I'm fairly certain it would've been cut by now if that was the case.
But the AI certainly does love building a whole bunch of them.
