    Here is a new ship variant which they can players compete for a build!
    The most original and practical version of the ship will be selected; the player who submits that winning version gets 500 credits, and is mentioned in the lore for that ship.


    Time for a Genari Frigate Build!
    The go-to ship for captains who prefer using missiles instead of beams: The ship carries dual missile launchers and a singular heavy laser. A well-rounded ship with moderate armor and engine power, it also carries a complement of marines. The Firebolt type I is one of the most common frigates used by Genari -- can you make a Type IV that will follow in the generations of Firebolt variants?

    Use the system reference tables below for building your ship:

    ENGINES

    WEAPONS

    0genweapons.jpg

    SHIELDS

    SCANNERS

    When Building the Ship:



      • Use the Engines, Weapons, Shields and Scanners tables to select your systems.
      • You cannot exceed a total of 185 mass, and 165 crew.
      • Engine MUST be a 2x coupled set.
      • You can have 3 weapons of any type in the forward arc.
      • Base Hull points: 48
      • However, if using heavy missiles (GSEFW-5+) your base hull is 45.
      • If using missile on center hardpoint, reduce crew space by 10 (ie. max crew for ship is 155) and add 10 mass penalty.
      • Up to 3 armor hardpoints, each adds 3 hull and 10 mass
      • Up to 3 marine pod hardpoints, each adds 10 mass
      • If using light missiles on wings (GSEFW-3 or lower) you can have up to 4 armor hardpoints instead of 3
    Reference Build Example:
    Firebolt TYPE I
    Engine: GSEFHD-4x2 Crew 80 WT 40
    Power (2x13)=26
    Weapon: GSEFW-4Cx2 2F Crew 30 WT 36
    Weapon: GSEHLB-2a 1F Crew 27 WT 30
    Shield: GSEFF-3 Crew 12 WT 10
    Sensors: GSES-3 (range12) Crew 10 WT 20
    +2 Armor WT 20
    +3 Marine Pods WT 30
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Total Crew 159 WT 176
    Hull: 48+6 = 54

    Bootleeg Halifax

    Engine: GSEFHD-4x2 Crew 80 WT 40
    Weapon: GSEFW-7 x2 2F Crew 44 WT 44
    GSEHLB-5 center Crew 15 WT 15
    Shield: GSEFF2-3 Crew 20 WT 28
    Sensors: GSES-2 Crew 6 WT 5

    +3 armor WT 30

    +2 Pods WT 20
    Total Crew:165 WT=182
    Hull:45+9=54

    -Victory's FW-5A have range and damage boost bonuses because of the Victory design/superstructure. On a Firebolt they follow normal parameters. -Vesuvius

    -still think firebolt is a missile boat and should continue as a missile boat. sacrifice the scanner because ship's ability makes up for it. up the missile to the next level so it still have 8 range, same as the laser

    move the bonus 2 damage from the heavy laser to raw damage on missiles. slightly better at long range combat since you are not forced into range 2 for full damage on the laser. still, i feel this is more efficient then the normal bolt. plz double check is something is wrong.

    Firebolt TYPE IV- Bigger Engines like First Honor
    Engine: GSEFHD-5x2 Crew 100 WT 50
    Power (2x15)=30
    Weapon: GSEFW-4Cx2 2F Crew 30 WT 36
    Weapon: GSELB-2a 1F Crew 7 WT 7
    Shield: GSEFF-3 Crew 12 WT 10
    Sensors: GSES-3 (range12) Crew 10 WT 20
    +3 Armor WT 20
    +3 Marine Pods WT 30
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Total Crew 159 WT 183
    Hull: 48+9 = 57

    So the big change is the laser which goes from heavy laser to light laser so less damage but more speed and power and inititative.

    Firebolt TYPE IV
    GSEFHD-6x2 Crew 120 WT 60
    Power (2x15) = 36
    Weapon: GSEFW-3 3F Crew 27 WT 30
    Shield: GSEFF2-1 Crew 12 WT 12
    Sensors: GSES-2 (range10) Crew 6 WT 5
    +4 Armor WT 40
    +3 Marine Pods WT 30
    -------------------------------------
    Total Crew 165 WT 177
    Hull: 48+12 = 60

    The first Type 4 ship packed with 36 engines, designed for fast approach to Maal long range ships, with reduced shields and improved hull. Finally Gen officers are able to overcome the Liverpool Type 3 init. The shields and missiles are selected to reduce energy usage and allow maximum movement.

    lol, you guys. if you just want a bolt with big bombs, lose the pods and go for the FW-8. you hit 10 damage with those. you can directly compete with pool 4 's 4 power for 20 damage

    haha, if I remember correctly I couldn't get that one on there because of crew limits.
