New ORE Ship type for greater flexibility and variety for Alpha and Omega players for various resource gathering.
Concept: A modifiable ship for ORE Corporation to be more competitive in a variety of roles. Utilizing sliding bulkheads to increase, decrease or eliminate specific areas in the cargo spaces to optimize for a specific role. Can only be modified when docked, tethered or at a mobile depot but allowing the pilot a greater range of option from one ship for multiple roles in resource gathering operations.
I have been working on the stats for this new ship and have them available for anyone interested. Basic premise is similar to the tactical destroyer in that it has 3 “modes” (industrial/pi; salvage; mining) but can only be transitioned from one mode to another when docked, tethered or at a mobile depot. This design allows a player to use one ship and “configure” it to the specific resource gathering operation through the use of sliding bulkheads to increase, decrease or eliminate areas in the “cargo space”.
With the introduction of the new expansion “Life Blood”, I figured this would be a great time to share this concept for comments and possible development. If there is interest, I would be happy to post the stats that I have for this design.
