True, that'll help with the ammo hold significantly (since currently most ships I design are nearly split in two via an ammo shot).

K, I might actually add that to my current anti-fighter ship to increase it's effectiveness.

Well than that'll be interesting Tongue, the only ship that gives my computer a hard time is the big OW ship (I cannot remember it's name but the thing is huge and is a nightmare to fight (I spawned it on accident while testing)).

Joking aside, I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I won't be as active as usual, so I can't actively evaluate designs as I'd like to (and can't continue building up the Corensian Monarchy), but I can probably find the time to keep up to date.

Well this will most certainly fall under that category (since once I test it I plan on putting the 'intel leak' without any pictures and with a vague description that'll get the point across) you won't be disappointed Wink. That's ok, I'll still upload them (maybe, I'm still trying to figure out whether keeping them for a while would be better) and be constantly making changes on my end. As it stands I'm finding it hard to get on FtD recently (family problems) so I won't be designing much for a while, also I plan on building something for the Corensian Monarchy. I'm just torn between it being a dedicated anti-air vessel (since they would seem to be susceptible to it) or a Destroyer. What I do know is that I'm gonna attempt to make it paddle based (since I'm the person who draws it out on a graph paper prior to designing lol) but I won't sacrifice too much firepower to do so (current projected armament if Destroyer: 3 Dual 250-300mm ACC (or CRAM's since there still is no fix for ACC cannons, grrr...),4 150mm Dual-purpose ACC (or CRAM's) ,and 4 Dual 45mm Flak ACC. If Anti-Air: 4 Dual 150mm Composite AA ACC, 8 Dual 60mm Flak AA ACC, and potentially a Hothead Missile system (the hotheads are the one's on the Benevolence Mk II) OR a Redeye missile system (Benevolence Mk III what I've come to designate as being an Interceptor (since after messing with it, I've edited the engines to allow for more jet engines)))
