Hey @Legionite, can I get a job/occupation? I feel left out(cough cough not really cough cough).
Anything i happen to post basically has no value. If you're talking about left out , i really am left out , i've been in this website , about 2 months after the game got released , and still my opinions don't get the respect that it should've in the first place, i only ever get told no.

Then have better opinions. Not in a mean way, but your suggestions are kinda meh. Think through it before you post it, and have additional info and drawings and such to make the reader understand it better. Or if you wanna be noticed, start a flame war (preferably in kingdoms) and you'll have tons of attention!

See [>Here<] for advanced/elite occupations, or make up your own if you want to (not the same thing as an elite job in terms of magnitude of the job, but can get really close).

The Elite positions hold whole lot of responsibility when selecting an elite job, so it is not expect that they carry out their duties frequently. In other words, elite positions are free to do their job when they feel like it, but at least do it once...

What I do with my suggestions is that I evaluate their usefulness in multiple situations before I post to see if they have any advantages if added in.

Knowing everybody on the forums also helps.
Look at their slightly older post history for a basic background to find what the game might be missing.
(may be a bit stalker-ish, but it works well for me.)

Soo true.
Brings excitement, but not suggested by me.

If i start a flame war , my opponent would probably just get a mod to ban me. Always happens , in every single thing i talk on.

BAM!
Quad barreled main cannon!
Didn't expect that, eh
Atmo BS.png
Almost could be called the BS Battlecruiser, but is called the TAV Hydra (Hyperion Class Battlecruiser) because @Sozin gave a name idea like that, and it sounds fitting for the 4 main cannons installed in it.

Mind you, these main cannons are not as powerful as the TAC Mothership, but their combined strength is comparable to 1.5 of the TAC Mothership Main Cannons. Also slightly improved charging times too. I guess the extra time spent in researching it paid off. Cannot do anything if all 4 cannons are being charged at once.

The armor is decently bulky, resulting in a much slower ship than the very nimble TAC Mothership. Turning rate is actually quite decent, although rolling is trash.

This ship is way more powerful than the TAC Mothership in terms of firepower.

The big 3-barreled turret on top is called Bee Judged, most because it rocks a weapon that rips through pretty much anything. But the holes it makes are super tiny, nothing really happens when it hits a fuel tank... Scientists who tested this weapon on themselves reported a very light stinging sensation, like a bee sting, but no visible injury was found. More research must be done on this kind of weapon in order to make it the slightest bit viable.
It fires extremely fast, meaning that its only current use is to simulate bee stings in the enemy crew members.
Its main duty in combat is to aim and shoot at the obvious command center sticking out of the enemy ship.
Not the beeees AHHHH!!

The main catch to this ship is that the cargo bays are literally exposed to the elements. So don't assign the ships you care about with this ship. The cargo bays are more like ship gantries than cargo bays (the left and right side things).

Oh, and also lacks point defense systems at the top.

Now, to decide the ordinance this will fire...

The New Battlecruiser is complete!
But I need some suggestions on what the 4 Main Cannons should fire!
Choices are:

Heavy Plasma Payload
ION CANNON

RED BALL OF HARD-POINT DESTROYING DEATH
Multi-Purpose Railgun
Massive auto cannon thingy
Mega Missile
Endless Tiny Swarm Missile System

High-Velocity Base Bomb Launcher
Atmospheric Terminal Velocity Accelerator
Or suggest your own!


A new AI needs be be created for this new ship, and an attitude, ability range, and characteristics need to be specified.
(Artwork is optional)
Also please list the size rescale factor in all 3 dimensions to help decide on a definitive size scale for this craft.

Ends December 16th, 2017
The TAC Mothership will be referenced as the Valhalla Class Mothership from now on.

TAC has had this technology in the works for awhile now, and is now releasing it to the citizens of TAC!

I proudly present:
The Anti-Gravity Atmospheric Lift System [AGALS]!

Press X and unanchor to get godly amounts of lift. Apply as much mass as you want to this thing (keep it symmetrical) and add fans as needed.
View attachment 19302
(downloadable Tech file)
The thing in the middle (HK and GSO blocks) is the Technocratic AI Colony Anti-Gravity Atmospheric Lift System [AGALS].

The VEN hovers are very important to the lift system, so if they get destroyed, the AGALS will fail. Concept Art for this mechanism in RP will be created sometime later.

I highly suggest 4 or 6 on a huge craft at the edges for coverage reasons (prevents the craft from tipping over, and to make it follow the terrain properly.), even though one of these modules allow a Tech of incredible mass to float.
Take the Tech referenced above apart to learn of it's inner workings, so that you can also build a huge flying Tech too!

Press X, then unanchor to fly
Not the same kind as a zeppelin, but rather a greatly amplified hover of sorts.

Ancient tank-> old design for this was over a year old -> done some retrofitting to it to make it semi-viable

still basically only useful as shock troops. Once shield goes down kaboom.

Well, you should OBVIOUSLY choose that one. Why wouldn't we pick it?
The Charge time is the same as the ION CANNON, but the power toll when using this is ginormous. It is a slower projectile than lasers or missiles, but it ignores shields, and instantly destroys hard points if it hits! Guaranteed to leave a crater in pretty much any capital-class ship.
It would probably immobilize the ship after firing for 1 turn, unlike the other weapons on the list above.

Also, since it's a Land Battlecruiser, does it not fly in space?
The addition of some thrusters make it space worthy(extra time spent on it), but not anywhere near as fast as it goes in atmosphere.
