Summary0021083: Fleet Experience Upgrade: Further Supply Range?
DescriptionRead something about how it is nigh impossible to do deep raids because of having to bring a slow and obvious Flagship with you to provide Supply.

Wonder if extending that would be a possibly useful Upgrade. So do some light raiding with this Fleet, and it gets properly better at it.

Definitely not -- the math for that gets ridiculously slow and would be a big rewrite. That's my 0000001 reason for saying no.

But also, frankly your deepstrikes should be done using transports in the first place, and the transports are... your flagships. People used to complain that transports (or the lack thereof) also made things impossible with deep strikes.

I'm more of the mind that flagships should maybe just be faster. Or maybe if all of their ships are being transported and they are in hold fire mode they get a speed boost? I dunno, that one seems obtuse. I don't think that just making the flagships faster in general would hurt anything.

Fair enough.

Have seen complaints that the Flagships are pretty slow, and was just thinking of making them faster. Maybe that Raider speedboost effect as well.

I have an ongoing game - will test those.
