Ur Lord Tedric Posted May 15, 2004 Report Share Posted May 15, 2004 Here's a thought for the week..... With the advent of the mega-expensive Transwarp Drives (G$ 13,250,000) it has seen the possible ending of smaller, but still very useful ships. It would be quite nice to be able to carry non-TWD equipped ships out to their operating areas (or even back to be upgraded). What is the support, or not, to be allowed to 'load' ships as Cargo and unload them to a new fleet? At a minimum this would require a 'Load Ships (LS)' command with would be from Fleet to Fleet, but the existing RN could be used (and thus in convoy routes, or both of them) with the proviso that it checked the cargo holds as well. Such ships could be carried in Cargo Bays, or they could be carried like big fighters in Fighter Bays, but wouldn't launch if attacked (the Bays aren't built for that). This is also a way to get, perhaps small, Orbitals though Warp Points, which may not be intended, or even Surface Forts - but either could be restricted by class.
