I was thinking about something with the Photon beams..
Make the ISD IV beam do less damage than a hero transport.
Edit: I like the new theme btw.

That's how it would be done, yes, but there's no facility with which to do it. Specifically, there is no ability that can affect hardpoints like that. Perhaps if I changed all the warheads to unit abilities, but even then it would be a long shot, and you'd run into another set of problems with the interface. Plus you'd have to target to fire every time, which is a lot of unnecessary clicking IMO.
ah.. I got you now.. and yeah... that would be a sucky way to "fix" it lol

They lost so many of their early aces because of the crap they were flying too. That's why I figure "Mauler" Mithel has to be one of the best TIE pilots ever. Maybe even better than Fel if he had lived. He's kind of like Biggs in that respect.
just look at their fighters there we soooooooooooo man better fighters then the TIEs yet they chose those because they were cheap, built quickly and because the Emperer didnt care how many ppl he lost as long as he won because he could just grow more soldiers
I'm not really sure what you mean.
mm.. I had an idea.. did you set the autoreload timer? if so.. could it be increased to some Godaweful number.. say 180 minutes.. but can te repair ability be modified to say.. reset reload timers?

Or tugs. But I'm not sure that's possible.

This would make it alil more realstic.. and give those fleet tenders, tugs and the qusar a better role.. now to be honest Ibarely use them much if at all (I always use tugs on defense but rarely build fleet tenders and qusars because the normally am not high on my needed research list)

Dunno if the programing would let rank systems happen, and not including personality traits.
As for the proton beam, I say keep it for the Imperial Star Destroyer, since you pay like 100k to get to ISD IV, even though it comes at mark III, maybe change it to mark IV or just make the mark III upgrade a little more, maybe a couple thousand credits more. Anyways, why would Empire only want it for elite ships when they could have a fleet of them, I highly think that a Captain encharge of a ISD is worthy of a proton beam, not just Admirals and very excellent Captains.
well if u think about it it would only be for proven ships and leaders because of the way the imps worked (quantity before quality).... just look at their fighters there we soooooooooooo man better fighters then the TIEs yet they chose those because they were cheap, built quickly and because the Emperer didnt care how many ppl he lost as long as he won because he could just grow more soldiers
