Ur Lord Tedric Posted June 20, 2004 Report Share Posted June 20, 2004 I'd like to ask for consideration for a new order.... We will want to make best use of our trained crews and there is currently no way to do it. They may be trained through LFE, or by battle experience, but we will be continually faced with losing all that training if we wish to re-use the ship components. It's either that, or our most experienced ships become obsolete. Very much like the SHIP order, I wonder if there could be consideration for an Upgrade (UPG) order? This would be just like the SHIP order, but with one extra field. What this does is load an existing ship from a fleet into a shipyard slip and transform it into a new ship. This new ship has to be an identically sized design (perhaps even only up to 50% different in components), but this has the benefit of keeping the Morale and Experience gained. It swops out the old components and stockpiles them, and takes the new components from stockpile. The net effect would be just as if a ship received an upgrade, perhaps a new weapon fit, or sensor upgrade. The big limitation is that has to remain effectively what it was - a 400,000 ton CA has to remain a 400,000 CA, but just a little better than it was. It would also be possible for this to be exactly how a 'repair' system could operate, except that the two ship fields in the UPG order now contain the same ship design. ie, the ship is 'upgraded' back into itself, but therefore keeping the crews training..... Any thoughts.... Chief Warmaster to Ur-Lord Tedric Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
