Show Me Screenshots of Fleets That Feel Good

Postby Sypheria » Sun Feb 08, 2015 11:05 am

Show me some screenshots of fleets for Veru'nas, humans, Acean/CB which would feel comfortable.
They would have to feel good to use.
Avoid too few units/too many units which make the feel bad to command.

Veru'nas ships are mostly the size of human dreads and they have fewer units than humans.

CB have many more units than humans and are about the size of corvettes.

Aceans are the same as CB except with a couple units larger than dreads mixed in.

...is 250k CP going to be the starting amount when the game goes live? or is it still for testing purposes?

You mean fleets from other franchises? For CB I see something like the aliens in Ender's Game:

However I would also like to see them having (few) lager ships:

They are as versatile machines as the aceans are organic beings right?

Novus Aeterno.

Create fleets with human NA units which feel good to command, not underwhelming, not overwhelming.

An enjoyable fleet, wether your using only a few units as Veru'nas against a massive Acean fleet or vice versa.
Don't forget the amount of micromanagement is going to increase dramatically from what it currently is with the new component system.

Buggers from Ender's Game is not a manageable fleet size.

This question is confusing. We cant really show screenshots of fleets for each race which is not even in the game :P

What would be a comfortable balancing would however be:

Highest ship numbers <- Acean <- CB - Humans <- Aszendie <- Veru'nas

Highest strength <- Verunas <- Aszendie <- CB - Humans <- Acean

Obviously strength is abit problematic to say as Humans are the least technological advanced, and the Verunas is the most. Maybe where they wont necessarily have the biggest combat capability but they might have advantages in other areas. Same with Cauldron Born.

Aceans would seemingly by logic sense end up in the lowest strength tier due to organic nature, but that brings other advantages with it.

if we are asking what would be a suitable number for each race i would have to consider that the race must be capable of defending themselves and attacking at the same time.

Aceans should be the highest numbers. Depending on how melee weapons and such act in the game i think they could go as high as 600+. They should be a swarm.

Lowest is Veru'nas. Most of their ships are the size of human dreads. 50-150 is probably a sensible place to start, although it would suck if they do not have the numbers to attack and defend other places at 1 time.


CB, Aszendie and Humans should be between 200-300-400 at most i feel. Depending on how much they get over time through development of colonies.

edit: Edited race strength.

Use humans units to take screenshots.
Human corvettes are aceans, dreads are verunas.

100 units isn't manageable.

Think about it like this.
How many units can you comfortably control if you had to manually click a unit then hit a button and then click a target to attack for every single attack.
