@borg: Read what I wrote, because then you didn’t need to comment false about ship components and special module components.
Was going to ask what Spec Ops was but I get it now. A specialized mission for rank 7 and up ships.<<
That’s so not correct.
There are 2: Defiler R10-R15 mission
and Destroyer ‘Andromeda’:
T3: R7-R9 mission.(BP/rare loot)
T4: R10-R12 mission(BP/rare loot/Ship parts)
T5: R13-R15 mission(BP/rare loot/Ship parts)
What do you mean by Ship Parts? Do you mean parts for the premium ships, like the Palom? I got a mission to get parts for it but haven’t heard anything else after getting 11/40 parts for it.<<
No. Ship parts also called secret project parts are those engine/interior structure etc. you craft from workshop or get from other sources. The amount and which part you need is depending on the project you want to build(instead of before the amount of slots you will open and the ship balance factor for the one you want to build). The new introduced destroyer require ship parts too + neo(for R8) or berry(for R11) version.
What do you mean by ship components? What is the difference between parts and components?<<
Ship component relate to the ship assembled by it. Mean Karud ship components for Karud. But this mean also, that you need for each current assemble premium ship need its own unique ship component.
Ship parts are as explained secret project parts and have nothing to do with such premium ship assemblings.
What is OS? << Open Space also called Invasion mode is a free to fly mode with missions, some happenings and farmable nodes(but most times trash). If you wanted ever to see all the PvE/PvP maps in their glamour, you can fly to them there. But due lack of devs attention it’s not very interesting outside of sight-seeing tours.
>>Special Modules? I’ve not seen these. What do they look like?<<
- You can’t see them outside of an different animation if they have.
- You have to fly specific ships currently(but it’s already said that ALL ships will have 2 special modules while current first premiums will get this rework) to choose between 2 special modules before entering queues.
>>Where do I find GS sectors?<< Look at the OS map at a specific dreadnought button to change view from normal look to corporate one. Then view each sector to see its rewards. Some are GS sectors in payment, the most are iridium.
Also, what is this? Hi2pKjo.jpg
I know it’s a mission but do I get these ships back? Do they have better chances of success if they’re higher rank or more outfitted or higher synergy/level? <<
This is a fleet mission. You give the guy some of your ships for a time period doing task for him(lore wise said). There are 3 parts:
Amount of ships needed.
Synergy level of ships.
Specified role of ships.
The amount of ships and their maximum rank depend on your hightest rank accross all 3 factions with max sending at R12.
You get resources as already said but also vouchers(depending on the max and your achieved %).
What this mean:
You have for example R4 in empire, R6 in fed and R5 in jeri. Now you can max send R6 ships for this mission. The amount is then only 2-3 ships as its very low of rank. R6 is in this case your hightest rank accross all factions therefore the limiter.
If you would have 12+ rank ship available, then the max you can send are R12 ships and the maximium of 6 ships.
This mean 100/6 = (16 +1/6)% for full synergy, requested R12 ship send. Don’t know if fixed, but you can achieve more as the 96% shown(it down show .x% values, but calculate them) if you send total fullfilled mission.
Requested ship roles change.
% from the send ship is depending on:
Requested role or not: +x% if it is.(not really important as explained below)
Rank of the ship(indirect).
Synergy level of ship(most important factor, a full rank non-requested at R12 give ~11% while a requested non-full ship would give less so it’s better as having to use this non-full ship)
→ Requested R12 ship role ship with only syn level of 3 = 6%
Not requested R12 ship full rank = ~11%
Requested R12 ship role ship full rank = ~17%
The automatic button choose the best % available accross all available ships(ships in slots doesn’t count as is shown as for example 91%(93%) meaning in your slot is a ship, that has 2% more for this mission as the ship replacing it).
So be aware to don’t send ships away you will later use(grinding/OS/whatever) or to don’t have the better ships(%-wise) in your slots.
Ships used for this fleet mission don’t have to be equipped. But they block this equipment as long as they are on the mission if send out with them. Meaning if you have your best weapon/modules equipped on such a ship and then want it on another one, you can only do it with canceling the mission first or stripping it off before sending out.
