fleet composition
i don't know how to make a good fleet
i am at war against gargals i send against them 3 fleet each of 10 motherships and in each one i changed something about weaponry (modified by me)
they have only 4-5 ships but i ALWAYS lose all my ships!
the first time is that i have forgot to put cargo hold so they haven't enogh ammo but next times i put cargo holds and i was sure i would destroy them...i was wrong
another time they destroy al my mother ships with 3- cruisers and 1 mothership and i had 30 motherships well equipped
can anybody hel me?
i am a totaal noob about strategy games located in the space... :(

When you design your ships, are you increasing emplacements? Emplacements = Qty of weapons firing together. Each weapon slot allows you to increase emplacements.

For beam type weapons also increase the weapon mount for the forward guns to regular or heavy mount so they deal more damage. Light mounts are good on the sides/back since they can fire 360 degrees.

Cargo holds are good for extending your supply range and replenishing ammo but they won't help directly for dealing more damage which seems to be the problem you are having. Also make sure to research your weapons to increase their level. Newly built ships will have the latest level but older ships need to dock in orbit of a planet with starbase to get refitted (automatically) with the latest.

so more heavy is the laser or the plasma cannon more damages i do
but the times of firing is the same?
heavy weepons does take longer to recharge?

Firing time is the same right now. Heavy weapons drain more power and can only fire in the direction they are mounted.

Well when I discovered cloak early and then put it on everything so I get big fleet move in range tell them lite them up with my lasers. I did add some missile pods into mix to do more dmg.
