Features

The SCX Core mod with the Dreadnought Class module, of which you need both to use this mod, provide a balanced Dreadnought Class slotted between Battleship and Titan. The SCX Dreadnought has only 6 sections to choose from but with this mod you now have 16 ship sections to outfit the Dreanought class to whatever combat design role you prefer. Also added to this class are carrier behavior AI computers.

Through testing it was discovered that Long range weapons are OP when facing 2.0.2 fighters. For this reason, the standard section coversion of 1L = 1H has been rebalanced to 1L = 1.5H. Hangars use this conversion to retain section parity vs long range beam Dreadnoughts.

Language Localisations Support:

English, Russian

Compatibility

– Locatornames may not originate some weapons from firing from hardpoints or turrets on the model and may come instead from the center. This is a minor graphical issue and will be fixed at some point.
– No vanilla files were altered and this mod should be compatible with all other mods out there.
– This mod adds sections and computer AI behavior and so should be able to be dropped into existing saves. Removing this mod from an existing save is not recommended.

Requirements

– You need SCX Core mod and Dreadnought Class mod together in order for this mod to work.
