Gary Carpenter Posted March 16, 2005 Report Share Posted March 16, 2005 Screen Ships, and the way the battle system works, is logical, if you think about it this way. First, my screen ships are NOT manned, they are either computer controled or pilot controled from the command ship. Also, I would think in space, battles would start at great distances. This means that the fire power of each fleet, would narrow like a funnel as it got closer to the enemy fleet. This is where the screen ships would be located, at the narrowest funnel point, yet far enough from the fleet, so there is no collateral damage. Also the screen ships are TRYING to get hit. This is also why at warp points, the advantage is to the defender, as he can actually surround the warp point, though even at a warp point I would think there would have to be some distance, IE you would not want a ship to appear inside your ship( OR would you) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
