Tech Tree Query

01 May 2008 - 11:47 AM

This is from another thread:

Also, whilst I remember: what the hell's with the tech tree at present?

Why is it I am able to construct the likes of a Praetor-class as soon as a skirmish match starts, but I have to upgrade in order to construct a Victory-class or even much smaller, weaker frigates & corvettes?

It's not a complaint, merely a query. I'm not sure what the point behind it was. Surely, smaller --> bigger over time makes more sense? Anyone?

I was just curious why I get access to some pretty massive ships right at the start of a skirmish match.

Could someone please elaborate on the thought process regarding the tech tree at present? :p

Vengeance-class Star Destroyer

Will this ship ever be in your mod?

I've always been under the impression it's a separate, unique line of Star Dreadnought, but I've also read it's just a slightly modified Executor-class.

What's your opinion, and is it likely to ever see the light of day in Phoenix Rising?

AFAIK, here's the most well-known image of a Vengeance-class Star Destroyer:

I think it would be an excellent addition to the game, and I for one would love to be able to command one.

Maybe it could be an interesting late-game hero unit, commanded by Jerec?

Just a few thoughts. :p

PS: Not relevant to this, but I thought the Tector-class Star Destroyer wasn't supposed to have any hangars or anything. The version in 1.0 does (on the underbelly), so I'm not sure if my information is wrong, or your current model is incorrect. Perhaps something for one of you chaps to look into. Either way, fantastic work overall and an excellent mod.
