I understand your point LordStrum so I have revised my UN frigate, but not a lot because the ship is meant to counter the people how have lots of nukes. It is also a combat ship meant for seeking, Intercepting, and then destroying it's target and so it suffers in the area of cargo space.

---ship Format---
Creator: Josiah-228
Type: UN frigate
Price: $800,000 and 8000 rep and UN commission
Shields: 15000
Cargo Holds: 10
Equipment Bays: 5
Max Speed: Very high
Turning: normal
Thrusting: normal
Energy Regen: High
Warp Fuel Efficiency: 8
Special weapon/ability: Rail gun
Energy usage: 500
Effect: Fires a tungsten slug at very high speeds and has good range. It dos about 1000 damage
Sales Pitch: The UN frigate is a hard hitting attack vessel you will not want for lack of fire power.

This ship is a pirate vessel meant to offset my UN frigate. It has more cargo space for carrying all the loot gotten from some unfortunate colony, but it suffers in speed and warp efficiency.

---ship Format---
Creator: Josiah-228
Type: Pirate raider
Price: $800,000 and -8000 rep
Shields: 15000
Cargo Holds: 120
Equipment Bays: 8
Max Speed: good
Turning: normal
Thrusting: normal
Energy Regen: high
Warp Fuel Efficiency: 10
Special weapon/ability: Plasma torpedo
Energy usage: 500
Effect: A semi guided (you have to be facing your target but not head on the projectile will follow the target so long as the target doesn't drastically alter course) plasma pulse that travels at a good speed and has a good range. It does 1000 damage.
Sales Pitch: Pirates all this vessel is your every desire and will bring fear to all you meet.

The point here is to create more diverse ships, not more powerful ones. You know, stuff that has more uses and stuff. Yeah...:P

Ya I know but I think the game is lacking in good combat vessels especially in the hunter killer area. After all if you get board of trading it would be nice to have a ship that can quickly and efficiently look for other players and be able to then put up a good fight. And it would be nice to have a ship that can at least have a chance of beating some one with 16 or 24 nukes.Oh and as a side note it would make the npc more interesting to fight. :D

---ship Format---
Creator: Josiah-228
Type: Blackbird
Price: $2,000,000
Shields: 4000
Cargo Holds: 100
Equipment Bays: 8
Max Speed: normal
Turning: normal
Thrusting: normal
Energy Regen: normal
Warp Fuel Efficiency: 16
Special weapon/ability: orbital surveillance
Energy usage: 1000
Effect: Allows you to see a planet with out landing on it for 30 seconds, but you can only look at a planet once in 24 hours (you can still go and look at more planets but you have to wait 24 hours to look at the same planet a second time). good for spying on enemy colony defenses
Sales Pitch: Would you like to see what is on an enemy colony well this ship will let you.

Creator: sripley
Type: supermax barge
Price: 200,000
Shields: 1000
Primary Weapon: selectible
Scanners: tactical
Cargo Holds: 500
Equipment Bays: 36
Max speed: fast
Turning: slow
Thrusting: slow
Energy Regen: fast
Warp Fuel Efficiency: 17
Special weapon/ability: point defence
Fired/Activated by:
Energy usage: low
Effect: can adequately defend against projectiles, ie photon torps, nukes, negs, flak, explosive projectiles,.
Limitations/properties: cannot defend against beams or energy, pulse rifle, graviton etc
Sales Pitch: The Supermax barge has a very high cargo and equipment capacity but very low sheilds and gulps warp fuel. The point defence gives it the ability to fend off attackers in transit, but the low turning and thrusting speed give it little military value. The high top speed allows it to cruise through a system quickly, while the low thrust leaves it vulnerable when exiting a warp hole or in cluttered systems. It's a relatively fragile cargo ship that can defend itself while on the run.

I am un-stickying this topic in light of the new ship module system. If you wish to talk about new ship ideas or new module ideas you may start a new topic.

Even with the ship mods, I still would I like to see new ships to make the game more interesting.

And a revamp of all the non-16k shield ones in one form or another. BATTLEship. Best "combat" ship and biggest fuel whore in the game. WTF does it have 12k shields for??

well i think the idea for the isc is to be some sort of super destructive mother ship. so i don't mind it having more default shield capacity than a battle ship. however i do agree that the battleship should be more evenly matched against the isc. perhaps they should give it a radically higher default top speed and thrusting. then when you mod it, it becomes a very nimble invader and fighter. if this were to happen i could easily see myself prefering it over the isc for invading at least.
