Higher Rank =/= Better ship?

Post  EvilNinjadude on Tue Oct 23, 2012 10:25 pm

After equipping a G3 Spade, I realized that its GravMag Platform (component slot) was too small to support the Cargo Loader ability that we commonly used with the G2 Link (as the only real weapon available to us). Does that mean you intend to suit certain ships of one archetype into different roles?

I was just looking for a better G2 Link, I had no idea that higher ship ranks might be sidegrades instead of upgrades. Or maybe I do not have enough ships unlocked yet? Please clarify what you're planning to do with the ship ranks: upgrade or sidegrade?

Higher ranked ships will always have more total capacity than lower ranked ships, but not necessarily more of a specific type of node.

The majority of the hulls in the game are rank 5, which is the highest rank. Many rank 5 hulls are hybrids of two or more archetypes.

I've seen some of those in the Scenarios. They have two letters and a number to denote their Archetype. It'd be fun to find out what they could do, but a lot of the ships (including one or two Rank 2s) are still locked.

All rank 4 and 5 hulls are locked in the demo, as well as a majority of the equipment. The demo also limits the campaign to the first ~2 hours of the ~20 hours the finished campaign will run.

We do have Kickstarter pledge levels that will grant you access to unlocked builds of the alpha and beta phases of our game if you are interested. Smile

If, if, if. I simply don't have the means to do this kind of thing. I have 70 Euros sitting on my desk right now doing nothing, you see, but being 16 is limiting to say the least. No credit card, no paypal, and no cooperative parents at the moment.
I'll just download the 0803 then.
