The grey colour for Zsinj could be changed. It is not the prettiest and it is hard on the eyes.
We're still trying to find a good colour to stick with Zsinj. It used to be a "richer brown," but colour blind people found it hard to distinguish between them, Maldrood and the New Republic. Takes a bit to find new colours we can use with how many groups we try to represent, and without introducing issues for colour blind people.
Third party attacks on space are always starting at the same point as attacking fleet and only helping defending forces.
I disagree that they only help defending forces. If you're attacking, you have a few minutes to get out of the way, and they typically prioritize the starbase as a target. Eventually we want to add a separate marker in for them, but that means going through all ~150 maps, so we're waiting until we have everything we want done as far as map markers and edits so we can do it all at once.
Mc 90 and the generally all capital ships are too weak. They could be made more expensive but they should be more powerful.
There was an issue with the New Republic in the demo release where their turbolasers didn't receive the same damage multiplier as the green turbolasers did. It's been fixed internally, and will be fixed in 2.2 (or if we decide to do another demo patch)
Same goes fot SSDs.
SSDs certainly have more pronounced weaknesses, but they're still incredibly strong. SSDs have pretty much always been an instawin card for the player, which they still sort of are, but at least now it's not guaranteed.
