They should add all does ships listed here...

Destroyer
Mining Ship
Explorer Ship
Supply Ship
Salvage Ship
Carrier?
Refiner/Fitting Ship
-----------------------
Add some kinda Fuel and Ammo Bay so Supply Ship would be needed in wars...
-----------------------
Add more types of Battleships...
Make it possible to buy Serpentis, CONCORD, Khanid Navy etc ships, of course u must have good rating with them... This would make many various ship types out there and this will of course be good!!!
-----------------------
Make us change some colors and paint images on our ships, like Corp, Alliance images and maybe even name our ship so ppl can see it?

They'd go a long way by making it so that battleships could fit only large turrets, cruisers only medium, and frigates only small (as they can already). Then you'd actually need some frigates in your fleet to get rid of the annoying flies that are too close to fire on.

And maybe make mining lasers small-turret, so that cruisers and battleships can't fit them. Or, more reasonably, make a mining point separate from a turret point, and don't give cruisers or battleships more than one or two of them.

WinkI agree this would also keep the big corps from mining whole fields, or at least make it take longer.

I want to see battle cruisers and deep mining ships, carriers would rock too.

Carrier idea:
Would be a large battle ship sized ship with about 1/3-1/2 the armour of a battle ship. Would have very limited weapons, on par with a cruiser, But... the thing that would make this ship is drone space, and cargo hold. I belive the ship should have around 1350 cargo hold. lvl 1 carriers would add +1 drone for each skill lvl, lvl 2 carrier +2drones per skills lvl, lvl 3 carrier +3 drones per skill lvl. So basically you could have 25 drones out if skills are maxed. of course range of drones would need altering, because there is no way you would want to get in close range with a ship like this.

I can just see it now, 2 carriers guarded by 4 battle ships. battle ships move to about 30k away fromt he enemies, and the carrier sit out around 50k launching waves of drones.

I love the Carrier idea since i like drones for mining, npc combat. Aslong as it can carry about 50 drones it would be fun to send waves of drones at things.

love ur idea about the Carrier thing Lartfor!
And for the mining thing...
Maybe add Miner HardPoints on ships?


Ships Stats?
----------------------------------------
A Carrier would be the Capital Ship in any fleet! A perfect ship for Admiral's to controll!! Very Happy

A Destroyer would be a small and yet a powerful ship with good abilities for hunting

A Explorer ship would be fast and large if they add Fuel to the game, we dont want our Explorer to run out of fuel in the middle of no where?

A Supply ship would Transport Fuel, Ammo, Missiles etc to the battlefield or to the deep space miners, explorers and patrollers...

A Refiner/Fiting ship would do what it says in space, how annoying is it to get this Uber Loot 60 jumps from the nearest station? and how about to haul 300 Bistot 60 jumps? it would be better with Refiner/Fiting ships

Uhhhh Perhaps you've only fought NPC pirates but uhhh One or two hits from a battleship on a frigate a PC flies makesi t go BOOM really quick...
I know I fly in the merc frigates... I dont care how close you are One or two stray shots after 20 seconds or so will finish a frigate off liek its nothing....
Then take into consideration Heavy neutron cannons... they are made for close combat... POP! frigate is dead at the ideal range of 4k with one or 2 shots... at 300 damage a hit.

Titan = Carrier they are basically mobile space stations... able to dock frigates and cruisers from my understanding.

to me your carrier idea is basically a dominix.
with battleship at lv 5 the drone bay is upto 6250 which will hold 25 heavy drones (eek)or a massive 125 scout drones!!!!!
just sit it back with 6 x 425 rails (use reactor control units) with irridium and send hundreds of scouts towards the enemy!
but being able to carry 50-100 heavy drones would be awesome,
i also like the idea of fuel consumption, or some kind of servicing needeing to be done on the engines or the performance drops,

salvage ships would be cool too, maybe using salvage drones from a carrier? but best has to be the mining ship, so all these poor battle ships can be released from there prisons of roids!!!!!

(and how about haviing insurence only run out when u use it, kinda like clones?)

thanks for your time.

yes, Salvage Drones for Carriers... im sure it would need a large ship with large DroneBay and Cargo Space to salvage things... the more drones, the fasters salvage, the bigger cargo space, the more to salvage...

I like the idea of limiting weap classes with ship classes, as I can't recall the last time I've seen small weaps on a battleship in real life. Bringing in specialty mining equipment sounds like a much better idea to me. The carrier (or drone hive) is an idea I've seen talked about before. A huge drone and cargo hold bs class vessel is a grand idea. Sure it will hold a ton of drones, but a person is currently limited to operating only 10 drones at a time. The large drone bay would allow for storage of all the various drones needed and proposed; combat, mining, survey, salvage, retrieval, repair, etc. Having limited hi-slots and introducing increased drone control capabilities would also be a nice addition as well, I think.

Vulcan Cannons are small weapons (in comparison to the large big guns on battleships) used on most any naval combat vessels. While very similar to the gatling gun, these spray over 120 rounds of 20mm ammo per second; able to take out any aircraft that gets too close or approaching missiles.

Well actually the carrier idea is much different than a dominix. Carriers Rely almost 100% on thier strike craft to do the dirty work for them. So this is what im sugesting. Ships that can control over 20 drones all at once at ranges of like 50-60k.

They would be the flagships of the fleets, yet very vulnurable if fire is consentrated on them, which im very sure it would be.

Low HP + Amazing offensive strike capabilities is what Carriers are, and i think it would add much needed content to pvp, and hunting together. Though if this is inplemented, the ability to send drones at other drones would be needed as well.

For the mining thingy it would be best with Miner HardPoints on ship...

And a Carrier would also have good sensors and stuff so it can detect ships 1 AU away?

Personally I think a battle cruiser class is also esential for added content.

The basic idea of the Battle Cruiser is fit a heavy cruiser with Battle ship class weaponry. Battle cruisers were designed as basically a fast moving Battle Ship battery. Personally I would love to see them added, the fire power of a Battle ship and the speed of a cruiser. Sure they wont be able to hold as much as a battle ship, and only have like 1/2 the hp, but i belive they would be a cheaper more cost effective way for corps w/o the masive isk to compete and defend against battle ships.

Elite cruisers could also easily fill this gap. Though i think an entire new class of ship would be the best aproach.

Im just full of so many idea, its amazing how much this game could and will become.

So far we have an amazinly artisic frame, and CCP is painting a masterpies within.
