Couldnt you just make the ships less powerful

That would be ideal, but everyone seems obsessed with having uber ships.

The weapons ive made up to go on my ships are just little pea shooters compared to everyone's 'Wormhole singularity cannons' and the strippers arent even effective against other ships. You can just nerf the ViS ships and increase the numbers by some huge amount. make them like tie fighters, there are loads of them but one on one an X-wing could hand a tie fighter its metallic spacecraft ass.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

OK then I'll spill the beans about what the angels feather is;
It's an ancient precursor device that seems to be designed to prevent a planetary invasion, it creates an energy field around a planet that simply rips apart anything entering the upper atmosphere, the caarnth are using it to deny the Halycon coporation access to the planet below.
also while the number of caarnth ships is on quite big, only about a tenth will go to the wexxian system, every one happy now?

Here's what I think should be involved in the battle from each side in the interests of balance:
These are ratios, not absolute numbers. If you want more of your ships, be prepared to have more of everyone else's ships as well. This is based on my assessment of your ships' power in their descriptions.

Naucean
0.1 Mother Sphere or equivalent

Oifan-Umtag:
1 Assault cruiser or equivalent.

ViS
1 capital ship or equivalent

Caarnth:
15 Drone attack cruisers or equivalent

Urshan:
10 Battleships or equivalent

Kaldri:
0.5 Titan ships or equivalent

Icthian:
20 Carriers or equivalent

Auyuelcliad:
10 Heavy battleships or equivalent

Fuffel:
1 Destroyer or equivalent

I don't have details on Torpal ships (or other races) to make a decision on. I've just taken everything from the Vehicles thread.

Edit: We'd have to change this further to even up the sides, because there are more LAH people here than Halcyon.

Pretty much - the Icthian ships in Aegis are going to get pwned by the Naucean mother sphere as soon as they work out what's going on.

you got it

I would imagine that the Naucean Mother Sphere would arrive at the very last moment to save the day because it is so overpowered

In that case I'd probably scale down the number of Caarnth ships, maybe only 10 - don't forget they've just had a pretty big scare and aren't going  to many ships, also they've got a bit of work on their hands, wiping out all the Halycon bases in their sector.

Let's say about three times what's in my estimate would be fighting at the Wexxian system. Anyone else have an opinion?

Edit: Maybe there would be slightly fewer Caarnth. We'll sort it out once we've worked out the scale and decided which side everyone's on. Also, no more toxin. I still want my race intact at the end of this. I think the Nauceans should save the day by curing all the infected Halcyon employees at the last minute just before the Halcyon fleet wins.

yeah that does sound better than the Caarnth simply killing every halycon employee in their sector, do how many other races are in the caarnth sector as employees of the halycon coporation? and how much of the icthian race are employees?

If I'm going to be in this battle, then my only ship will be my awesome Titan Capital Ship: Bringer of Serenity.

Pretty much every single Icthian is infected by now.

The Bringer of Serenity can be there - if it's your only ship that means we're looking at about 3 times my estimate.

Excellent.. Perfect place to test my particle accelerator.

Edit: Daxx, come on IRC.

Can I bring the Squillisk in? they dont' have big ships. I could see them sending in about 20 Eviscerator class ones. They aren't big, or overpowered. Their main weapons are just heat lasers and small pods filled with Space Marines.

That would make about 10 of them about equivalent to a ViS Capital ship, right?
