Manta Freighter

    Manta Freighter 1.0

    starmade-screenshot-0055.png

    This freighter can be AI controlled or piloted. I had intended to make an auto launch system for the two drones that would trigger when the AHP dropped below 100 percent. But apparently the sensor block does not yet have that functionality. I may have to use a enemy detector as an auto-launch system in the future. Not the greatest firepower but it is not intended to be used as a fighting ship.

    The Freighter will hold 100k of cargo.

    The onboard weapons/systems are okay for freighter, so I won't knock that, but the overall storage capacity is put in danger by the marked lack of large turrets to protect it. There is also not enough turret coverage of all sides of the ship.

    You can do well in the ship, though don't expect anything spectacular when it comes to defense.

    I would suggest taking the mass that is in the drones and putting it in larger turrets whilst also putting more turrets on the bottom.

    I'd give it a 6/10, which I guess is 3/5, but is a little more than average. Like from a 0-10 system I think it is slightly over average at 5 which would be a 6.

    Thanks for the constructive criticism. I might have to try a variant with a large turret on top and two underside turrets. I will have plenty of power if i switch out the overdrive on the current turrets for punch through.

    I went with the drones because I liked the look of them.
    You can link a sensor to the shields to launch your drones.

    I considered linking the sensor to the shields, but I did not want the drones to launch if I used the transporter or something.
