    ADV. Frigate Support FR-01

    It's done! It's finally done. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1421377844

    The ADV. FR-01 is the bigger brother to the Destroyer Series, boasting considerable upgrades in durability and utility. It's based on the same original chassis principles and over a year of design work has yielded a monster.


    I've kept mods out of this ship as much as possible - it just uses the infamous Ladder, MWI Static Cannons and the pretty MA Navball.

    Here's the album to see some more piccys!

    This ship bristles with weaponry - 6x Gatling Turrets, 4x Missile Turrets, 10x Static Cannons and two 16x Rocket Launcher arrays to broadside a target into dust.

    I've made use of various scripts to make this easy to fly and it can manage itself pretty well. Automated airlock and door management, LCD's to display critical systems information, weapon fire sequencers, configurable orbital control and power saving/lockdown mode if you're away from the ship.

    The ship includes a modest gravity drive to give it a real kick forward if it's required plus a significant jump drive capability. There's blast shields covering almost every thruster so if it gets too hairy you can hunker down and jump

    There's three decks all logically arranged with the main access ladders to each deck at the front and back of the ship (don't worry there's a significant buffer of armor so if you ram someone [pls do] it's fine). The back of the ship also has a ladder system to each deck, though the controls for opening the bulkheads are situated only on the upper and lower deck to avoid a boarding party in the main airlock gaining easy access.

    Lower Deck:-
    Engineering, Refinery, Fuel and Cargo Storage.

    Central Main Deck:-
    Oxygen Generators and Storage, Main Energy Battery, Reactor Control

    Port/Starboard Main Deck:-
    Entrance/Airlocks, Medical and Cryo Storage Rooms, Main Gyro Stabilizers, 4x Hangar Bays

    Upper Deck:-
    CPU Controllers, Bridge

    Moving around the ship is streamlined and easy but in case of attackers there's 11x Bulkheads that seal each subsection while the automated interior turrets do their work.

    Let me know what you think! Does it look good? Do you enjoy how easily it can ram another ship in half or do you think it needs some built in heavy armor?
