New Secret Project Special Module - Saw One

Special Project ships need some new modules. I am not talking about 3 available special modules in the construction menu, but a new, additional one.

9 Secret Project ships will get 9 new modules that I will describe in the near future. I will create a thread for each single ship individually.

Cost of each module is 100 special module parts and they can be obtained for free, or purchased from the Store.


“Saw One” Secret Project ship:




Special module name: “System Reboot Matrix” Diffusion Field

Description of a special module:

The player can surround his ship with a shield for 10  sec. The shield absorbs all damage, but uses up energy: 1 energy point per 10  damage points.

If the ship runs out of energy, the shield disappears.

Upon deactivation by enemy fire or expiration, the Diffusion Field completely reduces any existing cool-down times by 50%  on any class specific modules on your ship and your allies.

It works within a  4000  meter radius or range.

The pulse travels 2  seconds and it launches from the Command ship, travelling at 2000 meters per second and it does not affects all ships in range instantly.

Multipurpose modules are not affected and are excluded in general. Recharge time for such module is  40  seconds.


Anti-abuse countermeasures:

Such Command effect  doesn’t stack one after the other. Cool-down period from such effect is 1 minute, to avoid abuse from multiple Commands using this ability.

An icon on the HUD should indicate the cool-down timer, if any of your modules got affected and reset by “Saw One” Command, due to this.

I only disagree with the ratio, it’s always 13-1 in T5 for commands special module. The rest is okay.

Saw does have a nice set of options but I would really like to have one that acts like a normal diffusion shield while granting 50% or 50pts additional resist on shield and hull for like 4sec upon exiting the diffusion shield either by gunfire or manual deactivation, that would make it complete as a ship and not just a glass cannon joke.
