So far looks pretty good, Never noticed the Crusher myself but this is SEED MSV we're talking about, so im not really suprised. btw, what does MA and R stand for in the unit names?
You probably wouldn't hav enoticed the Assault Cgue aswell then, eh? I forgot to add the Kerberous Zaku though.
I couldn't fit Strike Rouge in the title, so I shortened it to R.
There's no name for the Strike Freedom's upgrade which replaces the railguns with beam rifles, so I used the first two letters in the model numbers of the rifles.
Also, if you do want to add the Space Stations as a capturable thing, why not make them DSSD? Hell, EA Actually did try to steal shit from them.
I was thinking about throwing all the minor factions in together as the pirates.
They would have Access to some nice upgrades and researches that strengthens weapons and armor outside your normal tech tree, and the upgrades will persist even if you lost the stations in battle as someone else captures them. Also, they have access to cheap units as the Civilian Astrays, and a super unit, Stargazer.
I like your idea here. I was also thinking having that could make your units abit cheaper because of the AI making the need for pilots obsolete.
Also, if you want to flesh out Orb a bit, try adding some stuff from the Astray series, im sure people would welcome the idea of adding the Blue and Red frame into that tech-tree. each of those units have substantial room for buyable upgrades, which further fleshes out the tech tree.
The thing with that is, the red frame, blue frame, green frame and I would assume purple frame were never fielded by ORB, and i'm trying to keep the sides loyal to the show, with some what if elements. (As you can see, you can build the Dom Trooper for ZAFT)
If you do decide to add them, I know that the Blue Frame MG is coming out next month, and since im probably going to buy it, I'll scan the blueprint for you.
Like I said earlier in this post, I think i'll add all those minor factions under the pirate banner, and i'll have groups like the Serpent Tail sit on really high value areas.
Edit: btw, shouldnt EAF have access to that gunship thing as an air unit? it's a hovercraft that carries missiles and a chain gun. They were in Generation of CE. Along with the Zaft Helicopter thing you see in the desert. you know, since I saw the Orb hovering aircraft.
I'm abit hesitant about adding them to be honest. They're just so useless.
Also, how about a RADOM Dinn? Zaft could use some range spotters for ther artillery, seeing that Orb has the Recon Murasame.
RADOM Dinn? I think you mean the Dinn S.E.I.T. and the Awacs Dinn. They're the Dinns with the radar dome on the back.
Another suggestion, What about adding the Sky Grasper for Orb's air unit? since they do have the Archangel and all.
See, the thing is, Orb really only had one unit. It's not exactly a mass produced unit for them. But they're T1 is kind of shitty. I'll jot it down and we'll see how it goes when we actually start implementing the stuff.
This is good so far guys, keep the suggestions/comments/praises for high lord emperor Stargazer coming!
