Info for NEW subscribers of Kurogane OR Kurogane Expanded (NEW)
—————————————————————————

The Kurogane ships don’t have any turrets. This was a design decision made by Paragon as turrets would spoil the look of the ships.

There are no icons for ship sections other than the core-sections as Kurogane works different than other NSC compatible ship sets. The models are not cut into pieces to display the section icons. Another design descision by Paragon.

Preliminary Remarks:
—————————

Read the Q + A section.

The AI has no access to the new sections.

Questions And Answers:
———————————

Q:
I don’t see the KSE sections in the ship-designer sections screen. Is this a bug?

A:
No. You have a scrollbar on the right side of the screen. Use it.

Q:
The new sections seem to be overpowered. Do they make any sense?

A:
Yes they are overpowered and unbalanced to a certain degree when you play Vanilla at low levels like Ensign or Captain with low settings for AI aggressiveness, Crisis Strength and no Scaling Difficulty.
They are meant for players who play with high aggressive settings at Admirals Level or higher with AI Mods like Starnet, Startech and / or ACE active.
The sections have a hefty price-tag compared to the base sections to balance them.
You don’t have to use them if you don’t want to.

Q:
Does it contain any new ship models?

A:
No.
