Engineer Revamp (engineer frigate redesign)

Taking up the threads:

“[Guard Revamp](< base_url >/index.php?/topic/32588-guard-revamp/#comment-389815)” and “[Low Engineer Count](< base_url >/index.php?/topic/32075-low-engineer-count/#comment-390107)”

I think some suggestions for another underrated ship classes of the game – engineer frigates –  also need some room in this forum!

When I started the game in 2014, my dream was to build the special project ship (SP) “Octopus” some day! Because it had these super-duper semi-autonomous firing combat drones.  … then cam the run 'N grind for the destroyers … and now we have OP Ellydium ship Tharga… what can I say!! An engineer firgate is only 1-2 shots away from kill-destruction by a resonable fitted Thar’ga!

But: ships like the Styx (rank9, empire) and the Minotaur (rank11, empire) are legendary gems of SC ship-builders’ ingeniosity !

Also legendary ships like the Valor (rank9, federation, premium) or the Octopus (rank15, federation, special project) left a deep impression on many pilots of the Star Conflict universe!

So its time to collect some ideas to “make Star Conflict great again” – at least on this front!

Please comment on what you like and/or dislike and/or want to see in some new patch – because CinnamonFake promised:

“[Future UMC plans include pleasing pilots with traditional updates of Empire, Jericho and Federation ships…](< base_url >/index.php?/topic/32620-developer-blog-from-january-26-new-sector-conquest-and-trading-system/)”



P.S.: I like the Phoenix engineer frigate (rank8, empire, pirate)the most. It is a very good ship with the Nailer gun, its syncing shileds and its 3 Phoenix drones that can repair shield and hull or can be switched to attack mode – imagine, what out of the expensive-to-build special project (SP) Federation ship  “Octopus” would come if it had 3-4 Phoenix drones, Nailer gun and Sync shileds!! It would be great again!!

I suggest:

Let the Phoenix drones be available to all engineer firgates!!

3 Phoenix drones do repair hull & shields or can alternatively be switched to attack mode.

Don’t empire and federation both have basically the same shield mass? If that’s the case then you would need to give fed engi a boost in speed  also considering that’s fed strong point. but I would be one for getting heal for both hull and shields from drones ![:D](<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/006j.png “:D”)


Suggestion #2 : let the Nailer Gun be available to all enigeer firgates!!
