Hehe, ok - back to being (semi) serious.
Ok, regarding the new torp, missile and such class designations, I really like that and it came as a pleasant surprise. Actually, the whole way that you reorganized the weapon classes in the ship infocards into light, medium, heavy and so on, instead of class 1, 2, 3, ... really adds to the sense of realism, and fun. Nice work. Though, could you send me info on where the breakpoints are for each level? That way if I make any changes to anything, I can at least keep them in the same general level.
Something that you need to know, unless you already do, the autocannons need ammo! I haven't found a place yet that sells ammunition for those things, and the urge to test them is killing me, even though you already know that I normally dislike weapons that use ammo, I want to be thorough.
Hmm, since you're aware of the handling issues, I may go in and do some editing to clean that up a bit, if you don't mind some of the ships are dragging their tails a little too far, and as such, running into planets.
I think I may modify the handling of ships to be a little tighter, instead of tail-dragging for a ways. Hovis' mission shows just how bad that can get. Try using a Rapier against him (without having him in a Defender as I did eventually), you can't win... At least I couldn't after 5 tries (I wasn't feeling too patient after the third try, I usually beat him first try)... I'm gonna go in and make the Rapier's stats closer to the original Dagger's, though I'll still make it so that it will drift a little bit when you change direction. As I will also do with any other ships that I think might need it. Freighters and such are supposed to be heavy feeling, but not to the point of uncontrollability, so I'll also go in and fix that too. I'll try to comment the code to let you know what I change
Well, sorry if this rambled on a bit, just typing what was on my mind
Talk to you all later,
Some say ignorance is bliss, I say they're just too blissful to know better.
