- Space combat beta has been released for fighters, gunboats, and corvettes. You may fight bandits that you find in deep space asteroid fields. Most fighters have had their stats updated to perform an initial round of damage balance

- Sync Report
 


"... released for fighters, gunboats, and corvettes."

Currently space combat will only work with fighter class ships, and most gunship class ships.

- Space Combat - 1/ Restrictions
 


Can corvettes be used or not?
Is there a list of ships (gunboats and corvettes) that can be used?

See second post in this thread:

No Crusader-class Corvettes, sadly.

Wrong, corvettes cannot be used. Only Fighters and Gunboats. Bandits can use corvettes, but players cannot.

Let me hijack my faction mate's topic.

I have asked this question of a couple of people and posted it in the discussion topic in the Suggestions forum, but still no answer.
How is or was a ship's Armor rating or toughness determined?

Jastan, most ship stats were made up randomly back years ago.

Jevon, the Armor stat listed on fighters and some gunboats and some corvettes was just added when the Space Combat was released within asteroid fields. All other class of ships do not have this stat. I am asking how that particular stat or rating was determined. What is it based on? Was it pulled from thin air?

Some baseline testing was done to determine what armor stats should apply to each ship to make them generally as strong as would be expected against attack.

Further refinement may be made based on live combat results as well as large numbers of simulation datasets.

So it is not based on any existing stats? Pulled from thin air then and will be developed more through testing. OK thanks.

No, it's not based on existing stats that were pulled out of someone's ass 15 years ago.
