Pentastar Alignment 1.1 Overview Video
« on: April 28, 2017, 03:00:11 PM »
We've usually done some general faction overviews for each faction, talking roughly about rosters and whatnot. For this release, I've decided to go a bit more in depth with additional videos showing off some of the stuff that's less conducive to a text update without it being 50 paragraphs long. In these videos, I'll go over all the major tech, roster and ability updates for each faction in 1.1, starting with the Pentastar Alignment and ending with a separate videos on the heroes.

This isn't replacing the other text faction profiles when we add factions (the Hapans will be getting their full treatment after 1.1's release), it's supplemental. I'll also be recording full playthroughs for Corey Loses.



In this video, we talk about some shuffling in the PA frigate lineup, the new capital ship abilities, potential Lucrehulk replacement, Naval Station Validusia, and some quick Veterancy & Upkeep system demonstrations.

I also have a YouTube channel where I talk about mod development and gaming, do tutorials, and Let's Plays. If you like the content, consider supporting it on Patreon

looks nice. still need to upscale the bellator though. it's really too small
do you know what really makes me mad? that the NR didn't make as many different SSDs as the empire. they would have won much faster had they done so. it's just not fair. but, if their were more NR SSDs, they would be absolute SUPER-CARRIERS.

but, i'm a member of the PA at heart, and my wish here is to join the ranks of grand admirals... sorry, the elite imperial alignment

No, that's the correct size. They're 7200 meters, Praetors are 4800, ISDs are 1600. They're not that big.

preators i thought were something like 2,900 meters... ?

looks really small compared to Valdusia, will this mean the bellator will be a little down scaled with ICW 2.2? with the preator, because if it's THAT small, then it really should not be close to Executor/Vengeance/Viscount/Sovereign/Eclipse

Everything above a certain point (about 2500 meters) gets diminishing return in scale in EaW because of pathfinding. The bigger it is, the more it has to get compressed. Otherwise, they're entirely unuseable.

So what will the ship over a certain size begins credit cost limit be? Nebulon B's big enough? Or is it more towards Victory 2s and up?

I answered this on Discord, but for everyone else's benefit, anything that has degrading systems will have this.
