The Grand Jewel fleet design contest

Recommended Posts

The grand jewel army forces are in need of modernization so we are now recruiting officers to test and develop weapons. pick a branch(below) to build for. be creative! there are a few rules such as:

1. keep it relatively low part count. 

2.no copying designs

3. space branch needs no launchers to get into space

Branches

Space 

this branch builds ships to fight in space 

stock only 

 

Sea

BDA permitted

 

 

Air

Airplane Plus parts have some issues with absolutely huge hitpoints values (they're trying to fix it).

For now, @Rocketing Racerand I worked on correcting the values for all the parts in AP+. Below is a CFG file for use with Module Manager (comes with BDA) that makes the numbers at least somewhat rational: https://www.dropbox.com/s/gvasv4ywtu2jjha/000000_HitpointModule_PartFixes-AirplanePlus.cfg?dl=0

This will fix existing craft files to the new values:  https://github.com/java12man/BDA-CraftHitPointFix

What does relatively low part count mean? For me that's in the 200 or 300 part range, but I realize that might cause issues with other people's systems.

@lapis, may I suggest another mod?

This'll be handy for Tanker Aircraft submissions. I'll be converting one of my airliners I've posted on KEA into a Tanker.
