Flagritz Posted August 23, 2008 Report Share Posted August 23, 2008 First I will apologise for potentially re-opening the old Screen ship debate. However I had this idea and while I know its very unlikely to actually happen I thought Id throw it out there. Just as weapons increase in size as the technology increase why couldn't Armor do the same? Each level increase by a factor of 10 So Level 1 = 1 Ton Level 2 = 10 Tons Level 3 = 100 Tons Level 4 = 1,000 Tons Level 5 = 10,000 Tons Level 6 = 100,000 Tons Level 7 = 1,000,000 Tons The factors would also increase so for instance Titanium composite is a Level 2 armour giving 8 integrity, so its new 10 Ton version would have 80 integrity. With this system as your tech level increases the benfit of building screens would come down (especially as your industrial capacity is increasing). So if you had T'ckon 68 instead of fielding 1000 small ships it would be 1 big ship (and then is it worth it at all?) If you chose to build the smaller armor thats fine but better weapons tech means that smaller high AP ships can be utilized to wipe out the screens. Its just a random thought! :] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
