While looking at the VesselData I noticed that in the description for some of the Krailen vessels it says they have drone launchers but I am not seeing any coding for drones in the vessel data on those ships.   Do they really have drone launchers?  I know I should know this from playing the game but to be honest, after a while I tend to forget what ships do what. I just shoot them.

I was fine tuning the vessel data for my own purposes to get sizing, science descriptions and misspellings more in line with what I like and noticed that drone coding appeared in Torgoth vessels but not in the Kralien ships that said it had it. (in the long text).

And if it is not there, can that drone code simply be copied and pasted into the Kralien ship code in VesselData?

Thanks!

It is possible to add drone launchers to Kralien ships. The TSN Expansion features a 'drone cruiser' which is simply a kralien cruiser that fires drones. Feel free to take a look at the vesselData file.

Make sure you don't have a modified vesseldata file. There should be no reference to drone launchers in the description of any ships but the Torgoth. The Skaraans can have drones, but only as elite abilities.

The <drone_port> line in vesseldata should add drones to any ship you wish. As of 2.3, that includes ally ships.

As an alternative, you can add drones to a ship in a script with the elite special. You don't have to modify the vesseldata in that case.

So a simple copy and paste should work to add a drone to any ship that does not already have one?

Thanks!

Kraliens with drones makes them a much more enjoyable threat when amassed, instead of just being fodder. [biggrin]
