--- Corporations of the Union---
We at the SSDI are glad to present the Corporations of the Union. We have been members of the Union since it's inception. Our goal, as part of the Union, is to effectively map out and conquer redacted space. The Union allows the member corporations to work together, exchange technology and weapons design, as well make use of developed sectors for training purposes.

For those Corporations not yet members of the Union, please take the time to review the options. You will see that this is the best way for humanity to succeed. Redirect your datastream towards the Union home page; here. (https://knucklecracker.com/forums/index.php?topic=21913.0)


--- History of the SSDI---
The SSDI was formed 86 years ago under the original name Kakos Corp. Kakos Corp was primarily a food synth company that supported many other corporations with exquisite food stuffs. KC remained a small corporation with only a few fleet licenses under it's name. However, things were about to change drastically. Seventy four years after its founding, the son of founder Kakos, found some raw new talent; a young engineer known only as Sorrontis. No body knew where this engineer came from, or why he would join a minor corporation. This young man had ideas never dreamed of, even by the most research driven corporations. Sorrontis soon rose through the ranks; opening a massive research facility ship. Within five years, the new President of KC decided that he would promote Sorrontis, rather than his own son, as the Vice-President of KC. Sorrontis influence over the President grew stronger, boldly forcing Kakos Corp to enter further and further into Redacted Space; all for research you see. That is, until the President suddenly died of illness three year ago. Sorrontis was quick to act. He consolidated the corporation, took as many ship licenses as possible and entered Redacted Space. For four years, no one had heard from the Kakos Corporation; that is until only a few months ago, a new Corporation emerged from Redacted Space. The SSDI held huge numbers of unknown ship licenses, as well as the old Kakos Corp licenses. Not only that, the SSDI was in possession of a massive number of charted Sectors in Redacted Space.

We have moved the Hacking of Redacted Space to a new subsidiary of the SSDI. The SSDI Armament Development Division, or SSDI:ADD for short, will be responsible for all weapons development and hacking tools used in Redacted Space. Please keep a close eye on this section for new powerful tools to use in your corporation-claimed sectors.

These special software allows corporations to be truly prepared before entering Redacted Space. Look below for special coding.

This is a very nice fleet you have created, and the work you've done in Redacted space has turned many heads. Even GalCorp seems impressed.

I have a question: How did you develop the Kinetic Armour vessels? They seem to employ the use Precursor gravitation modules, but our engineers have never been able to get them to work properly with modern licensed vessels.

Dear Dark Ambition,

The kinetic armour vessels do not use gravitation modules, but rather kinetic hull polarization, a system unique to SSDI ships. Unfortunately, the KAV line was unsuccessfully launched before, and we are currently reworking their designs.

Post by: Stickman on November 26, 2016, 07:26:01 pm
[Kind of a disclaimer]: I was requested to come and criticize this fleet by its creator. I don't think I would go and RP around other people fleets like this without provocation. Also, English is not my first language and I would without doubt make few mistakes on a lengthy post (you won't believe how much mistakes spellchecker finds in every sentence).
Proof:
(click to show/hide)

Generally, Sorrontis' fleet is good. If you need to describe maps and fleet with as few words as possible it would be "creative and unbalanced". "Unbalanced" is used in a positive way, as Sorrontis tries a lot of ideas that stretch and bend rules of core game. Resulting maps and ships can be sometimes frustrating to play and use, but it's interesting to at least try. (I think I couldn't finish two or three of his maps and for at least five I went to check forum for tips)
One "valid" complaint about the whole fleet would be about CombatLathe - it's speed is painfully low and does not match speeds of ships that can be used as an escort.

--RP ON--

Review:

Before any analysis of a fleet even begins, it's important to understand that fleet is meaningless without an enemy, its purpose. And as any instrument, it should be suitable for the task. Thankfully, SSDI has provided a number of simulations using this fleet, and we strictly recommend other CEO to run these simulations as they provide great lessons for tactics, patience and conquering the unexpected. The unexpected part is heavily present, as SSDI simulations tend to present its whole fleet at the start of a simulation, without gradual acquirement of licenses over the course of a simulation.

Overall, SSDI fleet provides greater firepower over standard-issue fleet. It's enough to mention that Razor V2 is considered Light-Fighter class, smallest available class, but carries weaponry on par with standard Marauder, which can be considered mid- to high-tier ship for a standard fleet. Most distinctive feature of this fleet is, of course, its design. Whatever mind is behind engineering at SSDI, he definitely has an artistic side of personality dominant. Fleet has distinct, "jagged" look, is not afraid of asymmetry and is generally interesting to look at. We would only wish that more ships, namely Dreadnaught, showed this design more clearly, while we find "rounded" design of a utility ships like Supplement and Node Point fitting to their less aggressive roles.

This creativeness has it's side effects, though. Designs are deceptively larger than it seems and protruding parts can sometimes cause troubles with ship positioning. Positioning issue grows larger when encountering anti-ship weaponry or nasty cases of emergent or particulate, as some designs have weak points, ensuring heavy ship crippling on damage or full ship destruction. We don't count these weak points as "flaw" in overall fleet assessment, as we consider them design choice rather than a mistake. A more noble approach, giving your opponents a fair chance and a way to hone your ship positioning skills. Nevertheless, when using this fleet, you should be sure that your battlefield is spacious enough to accommodate uncommonly shaped ship hulls, and your fleet composition includes enough ships for frontlines, as we project that fleet of second-line ships like Duahcim or Deadspace would perform poorly.

For further inspecting rampant creativity, we can recommend "Minefield" simulation, which provides not only an unusual scenario, but a variety of ships with "aesthetics over functionality" principle and blatant breaking of the major ship-building rules like "engines mandatory".

We would touch an issue of Kinetic Armour Vessels, as we didn't find them impressive in actual performance. Positioning and size issues as well as weak points issues are amplified on these ships, netting them subpar to main SSDI fleet. As a very new addition with only one simulation we would not include it in overall SSDI fleet assessment.

Final mark for SSDI fleet would full A. This fleet is well-balanced, not missing on crucial modules or roles. Cannon module quota gets A- for lack of cannons on capital ships(a minor gripe of one the influential reviewers). Grabber module quota gets solid D for lack of said modules (except one odd experimental ship), but with an actual fear of new designs including these modules would be accompanied by suitably incredibly tricky simulations that require these modules. Fighter base quota gets B for including one carrier ship design, with an overabundance  of said modules. Design gets a solid S, and a very special "Don't create all-rounders with all the modules superships, have some roles, dammit" category gets an A as well.

Addendum:

We would like to address some designs and ideas specifically. Ship designs in question would be attached before review.

Dreadnaught progression:
(click to show/hide)
It's important to understand your design flaws and improve upon them. No fleet or ship is perfect (except standard-issue one) and engineering departments should never be held by tradition, preventing them from improving and moving progress forward.
First edition Dreadnaught was clearly designed with huge area denial effect in mind while keeping actual ship area at minimum for keeping build times reasonable. Unfortunately, "shield" parts proved ineffective due to the standard hull repair procedure and lack of shield module, easily failing to enemy fire or particulate and taking huge time to be restored. This was addressed in second edition, adding secondary structure beams to provide multiple repair zones for each "shield" part and inclusion of actual shield module, resulting in better resistance to damage that this ship desperately needed. Also, swapping reactor modules to guppy and tank combination improved energy sustainability for prolonged engagements or unsupplied usage, a clear improvement for this ship role and size. Loss of particle beams is minor inconvenience and can be considered a positive on energy usage and specialization side. Third edition shows minor improvement of energy efficiency once again, as reactors do little at this weapon scale.
We find this progression a clear indication of an intelligent mind behind SSDI fleet designs, and we hope that critics crying "Have you seen Death Fish design? This guy is insane!" would be silent from this point on.

Sabertooth:
(click to show/hide)
Sabertooth is an excellent example of asymmetrical design, with a nice module composition (maybe a bit of an overkill for particle beams at the rear part). Obvious weak point is starboard side, but it's should noted that mindlessly showing port side to your enemy is equally unadvised as energy tanks and guppies have very poor protection against stray shots and losing these would cripple your energy production temporally. It should also be noted that mirrored version of this ship does not exist, dismissing the idea of pairing two versions to eliminate weaknesses, thus keeping using this powerful ship a small tactical challenge.

Node Point:
(click to show/hide)
This an excellent ship. Firstly, three discharge modules provide very good stunner defense even at second-line, ensuring that stunners are shot down or stun times minimized. Solid stunner defense allows SSDI to avoid including further discharge modules on capital ships, thus  keeping specializations and roles clear. Secondly, it has a nice weapon selection, removing overspecialization that many ships with similar main roles have. Node Point keeps being useful after eliminating stunner treat, helping to clear mire or struc. Lack of cannon modules on SSDI's capitals help to keep this ship's cannons viable throughout the battle.
Actually, this ship weaponry can earn its place on frontlines on less particle-heavy battlefields.

Platform 2:
(click to show/hide)
This weapon platform has incredibly well-defined role. Firstly, its sheer number of missile modules can clearly handle lots of particulate and emergent, allowing it to bolster defenses of, for example, crucial energy mine beyond moderately effective "defensive struc + mine cannon" combination. Secondly, lack of actual armor and modest amount of lasers force it from frontlines, where particulate pressure and stray shots would quickly damage this platform, grounding it in a defense role and preventing overly trigger-happy CEO from hauling it with an attack fleet. Thirdly, discharge modules add nicely to an idea of finely defended position, ensuring that nothing harmful gets past this platform.
This platform has very strict use and can be unsuitable for some battlefields, but can fill it's role incredibly effectively, allowing one point to be defended by one platform as good as with few more well-rounded ships.

--RP OFF--

I hope it's readable and not a wall of text.

Thank you Inspector Stickman.

We are most delighted that you have completed your inspection of our fleet.
We at the SSDI cherish the opportunity to improve our vessels for future deployment. It is rare that the SSDI obtains this kind of critical feedback from our customers; which begged for a third party assessment. This contract was a most positive experience for our corporation.

We will take every recommendation at heart, and will soon be deploying new and improved vessels.

That said, it is with sad hearts that we must announced that the Terrorist attack on our facilities has hampered us beyond expectation. Our engineers are hard at work, and have updated their damage assessment. The SSDI should be back to partial operational capacity sometime this coming week, and in full force the week following.

Thank you all for your time.

Sincerely, Sorrontis - CEO of SSDI

Seeing your map descriptions makes me want to play this game more. It's been tough since after playing both, I still kinda prefer the gameplay in CW3 but maybe if I can find the time I'll give these maps a try!

Great to see you're still active & making maps... I'm guessing they're as "fun" as your maps in CW3, eh?  ;)

Cheers, m8!  ;D

Cheers, I've been taking them easy for the past few maps. Life has been hectic, so I take a map every 2ish weeks. And they aren't PRPL heavy. I find that fiendish PRPL that's still fair is harder in PF since the 1 hit to CM kills the ship.

Also, I've been spending about 1/2 of my gaming time on the Bioshock series; and another 1/3 on my own programming efforts + producing my own tabletop RPG rule set. I don't get a lot of PF in as before, but I still love it all!

I'm glad to know it's not just me. It occurs to me to ask for some evil. Also to try your tabletop RPG at some point.

Okay, next one will be evil :D And the TTRPG will be published in Alpha probably in the next few months. It's a project between myself and my brother.

I'm still alive everyone!

I'm actually working on map #50 right now. It's just there's so much PRPL code going on right now. It will take some time. Plus, real life prevents me from doing more than a couple hours a week... tops :'(

Life has been tough for good old Sorrontis. I barely get a couple of non-sleep free time hours. The next map is almost done. It'll be a tough one with the fleet I'm preparing!

Then we shall wait. Sleep first, make maps when rested.

I think the bigger problem is being at work 60 hours a week and bringing another 10 hours at home.  :-\

Easy solution: Just make the maps DURING work! Get everyone else at work hooked on this game and then they'll PAY you to make maps while you're there!  8)

Well, unfortunately. Map #50 is not to my standard. More work on it to come!

Oh! What's this? I'm back with a new map? That's right, "The Rinser of Winds" is up. This is the most frustrating map I have ever made - to make, and to play.

There will be no contest #3 for a while. There's a few things I want to explore first :)

A new map! It's a pretty easy start, followed by a hard middle, finishing off with an average ending.

What's this? Another map from moi?
What's that? Another set of ships!


Also, I'm extremely disappointed. There's only been 54 new maps (including this one) since April 11th? That's like a map every 2 days. Guys, we can do better, we can at least do 1 map a day... right? Right?!

My psychiatrist said I was too happy, carefree and confident about life. He said he could prescribe some depressants if I wished, or he suggested that I max all my credit cards and play the lottery so I could get into debt.

"If that doesn't work, and if you really need INTENSIVE therapy," he went on to say, "I suppose you could... no, that would be too brutal. - - - Although, it might be necessary to... to... I... I can't..."

At that point, he began weeping profusely and turned his head away from me to bury it in his right arm in an attempt to muffle his uncontrollable sobbing. His left arm was extended toward me behind his back, and in his hand was a piece of paper with a simple prescription:

"Play two Sorrontis maps and call me in the morning."

So I'll let you know if this therapy works.  :o
