Thread: Small plasma accelerators

    Small plasma accelerators

    Could we see some small PA's added to the hard point list (pretty please)

    Small plasma repeater. But not a small PA itself. Also a medium plasma repeater wit ha RoF of 3/s.

    But first we need to balance the other modules/weapons/ships before we add new broken stuff.

    Huge Rail Gun, please...

    After all remember that PAs were stupidly called "planetary bombardment weapons" in the literature... /rolleyes.

    Remember, literature from the game where it weighted 900 tons and is the thing stick out the front of the Panther Clipper
    (when the internal capacity of the Anaconda was a mere 650 tons without a drive)

    Fighters can have them, SRV's have them...

    I'd gladly weld a fighter to the nose of my anaconda to have a plasma repeater there.

    1) I think if you want to do a balancing exercise, it is much better to throw everything into the mix that you wish to balance first - it's not a cooking recipe - if it were, we'd probably only have three guns in the entire game; but balancing first before adding just makes it even more difficult to add
    2) The plasma repeater guns only make sense whilst the only planetary vehicle is that unmodifiable SRV - which necessitates it being a jack of all trades; otherwise that plasma repeater [conceptually] is too uber-awesome

    Therefore - I back your request, make plasma repeaters available for ships (small & medium), and make available an anti-plasma paint spray (it's a sort of coconut milk with vesuvian dew-drops shaken in) that ships can use to negate 50% of the damage. The side effect is it turns all ships bright pink. So worth it!
