      CS: Quickfire Initiative: Rebalancing StarMade

      ^ beams are working fine versus thick advanced armor from my testing, 40k/tick beam has no problems taking out 5+ thick layers of it was testing with beam-missile & beam-cannon though, possible it could be a beam-beam thing i suppose

      CS: Quickfire Initiative: Rebalancing StarMade

      Liking building with the QF changes so far, can finally build both compact & strong again without having to expand a ship hull too much for good stability & power;weight. Inhibitor being 30% RC is a weird choice, they're often pretty critical to get a decisive combat outcome unless there's some...

      What have you done... (power system wtf)

      And so, in obstinance, most of the crew happily drowned I do wish they (schine) would have been less hasty with it, stood back and took more stock of their game & community instead of what really felt like a panic move as exploits & busted mechanics built up in the old gamestate, exploits and...

      How do you balance a cheater? With a ban hammer.

      Duke seriously, you see where the "toxic" generally comes from now though right? It's got nothing to do with how people build their ships or what configuration a bunch of blocks are in, and everything to do with how people interact and attempt to control others actions in a game that...

      What actually failed in Starmade - if you care to listen.

      not enough hoppy spawns :( fr tho, the games moved away somewhat from its engineering roots (build your strengths) to more rpgish (pick your buffs), which is a damn shame. It still has a lot going on the actual practical design end than its competitors for now imo so it's still very much got...

      How do you balance a cheater? With a ban hammer.

      ahh yes the old clearly defined "meta crap", where everyone can agree on what it is with but 2 words. Did someone unironically write that somewhere or was that img a joke that went over my head?

      Balancing with Mass is fundamentally flawed!

      You don't get these values unless from estimation or word of mouth, except in the case of a shared/stolen design. There's other metrics that could be used but there simply not useful if there completely obscured & up to guess work, compared to the easy guesstimate from nav. Armor is the most...

      Balancing with Mass is fundamentally flawed!

      mass i find most useful because it's the given metric on nav :u if Reactor size was given in the same way I'd probably find that more useful, but its not, and imo that's something you should have to scan for at the least. no time to try and figure out their regen or block count or whatnot when...

      How do you balance a cheater? With a ban hammer.

      You could say that about sizes too, and yet you have like 700ks on brierie & the gigantic homebases that involves, yeah there's a lot of things that cause lag in starmade. Which is why "being considerate" isn't exactly a science lol, regardless of platitudes people *will* be competetive in a...

      How do you balance a cheater? With a ban hammer.

      nobodies building specifically for lag lol okay probably not entirely true, but it's not the intention behind a "meta pvp build", the intention is combat ability, some of the methods in question cause the lag (methods revealed in the build in question, handy right?), just like a torpedo launcher...

      How do you balance a cheater? With a ban hammer.

      name calling aside, yes there are some pretty broken mechanics and clear examples are always useful when approaching a fix, point out whatever flaw you can imagine with it, it's the overly powerful archetype of ship that's problematic at the moment, not the numerical values it achieves. smd...

      How do you balance a cheater? With a ban hammer.

      Grey, go beat it mass for mass, record it, then put that in the OP, save yourself paragraphs of noticeable half assed theory crafting ya know? I can promise you you're talking out of your ass right now, pretty much guaranteed 0 of these p2 meta ships are "perfect" and i bet latt got (almost) as...

      What actually failed in Starmade - if you care to listen.

      cool story but most of us are still here, and the answers still that the actual server gameplay is busted as hecc to the standards of the majority, so it's no brainer that they're almost all empty compared to before.

      hey, looks like its a super old BP so i imagine some spawning issues would occur, you could try selecting it on nav and typing /destroy_entity_only_dock to get rid of all the superold docked parts on it, if there's large cubic sections entirely missing from the ship after this its probably...

      The Pinnacle of Roleplay

      If you can roleplay unbalanced weapons & systems (that affect both AI and Players alike) all the more power to you but thats obviously not speaking for everyone and everyones subjective idea of what "RP" is in this context, furthermore the "RP" being kinda reliant on what the game allows it only...

      The Pinnacle of Roleplay

      "Dont balance the game because we can just RP" Fucking no? why not both? why not continue to develop the game in a positive direction that's accessible for multiple online player archetypes like they have been I mean schine obviously isn't going to respect this opinion because its literally...
