Space Combat Expanded - Carrier Class

This is an optional Space Combat Expanded module that adds the Carrier class to the game, complete with its own AI and tech upgrades consistent with standard classes.
While vanilla Cruisers and Battleships can dabble in carrier operations, the Carrier is designed to fully exploit that niche.

The Carrier is a battleship-sized, highly specialised vessel dedicated entirely to small craft production, maintenance and deployment. But while no other ship can match its supportive ability in protracted battles and sieges, a Carrier targeted by the main guns of an enemy battleship or outflanked by a pack of corvettes is nothing more than a glorified landing pad.
In game terms, the Carrier is a size 8 military ship capable of launching strike craft out of up to 6 hangar bays. In addition, all strike craft launched by a Carrier deal more damage and fire faster than normal. However, its own armaments and defences are minimal. To compensate for its vulnerability, Carrier will avoid close combat and prefer to stay behind the rest of the fleet.

  • Carriers fit perfectly into the fleet doctrine of the SCX Mass Effect Classes module. And because they are not subject to the Treaty of Farixen, Carriers can be used as an alternative to Dreadnoughts in providing extreme-range firepower.

This mod is dependent on the assets and code provided by SCX Core. It cannot function without it!

i just tested this with real space enabled (also makes ships smaller scaled and the carrier is the correct size btw

They appear but are just big compared to downscaled ships

So are ships still large with downscaled ships on or do they just not appear?

Ahh, okay. We can't promise any ETA (we're trying to get a lot of mods up to date and compatibility patches are the lowest priority right now) but we'll look into it once things slow down a little.

Just tried it and found out that it doesn't work..
Pinenuts Dec 10, 2018 @ 2:30pm

@Pinenuts: I can't really answer that yet. It's not updated because we haven't had time to test it. If it works (or doesn't) please let us know n_n

I love you. but would it be okay if I use it with Downscaled mod patch for scx? cuz that's not updated yet.

Nice I can even wait for more than that

As I said on the SCX Core page, we're giving ourselves at least a week to properly update everything. It may happen earlier than that, it may happen later, but please be patient and do not rush us. We know we need to update everything, we don't need reminders n_n
