[BPC] Praetorian-class Corporate Carrier

Description
The bulky Praetorian is a sturdy and powerful vessel. Originally designed as a heavy duty freighter, it was soon repurposed to serve as carrier or command cruiser within the KCL's Corporate Forces. Being a non-military-sanctioned commission the Praetorian is also found in less populated sectors, serving local militia forces as mobile base of operations.

Thanks to its large hangar and adjacent maintenance bay, the Praetorian can carry and maintain a large complement of fighters and utility vehicles. Its weaponry is comprised of a number of heavy cannons as well as a large number of defensive point defense turrets.

Origin & development
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This build is a 1:3 scaled replica of a model I build and released for X-Wing Alliance. Slight modifications have been made to benefit its use in Space Enginers. I've added the rear hangar entrance and greatly increased the number of weapons. The ship was originally designated as a dreadnought however, I've tweaked some of its origin story over the years and, as it's a non-military vessel, labeled it a carrier instead.

i did try that, but the "fuel access" container is just a o2/h2 generator so it doesnt accept uranium ingots or anything other than ice. I've found they're only refillable from the cargo containers in the room right outside of the secondary reactor room

They're connected to the main conveyor system. For immersion, there's a staircase up in the chamber with the secondary reactors, at the end of the corridor there's an access container labeled "Fuel Access" but you can supply them from pretty much anywhyere

How do you refill the secondary reactors?

awesome thank you. I absolutely love this ship. unfortunately i have had to modify several parts of the ship to fall in line of the rules on the server i play on. either way i appreciate you creating this :)

Yes, only the weapons are modded, the rest is vanilla.
SooperValar Mar 21, 2020 @ 3:07pm 
What parts of the ship are dependent on the Mod? Is it only external weapons?

Lovely build

Hmm, try loading only one of the MWI packs, it should work with either of them

I think it might have been the fact that i had both mexpex mods, the normal one and the weapon core installed

That's odd, never crashed for me. Can you specify, is it linked to a certain action/event?
