# 1 Cross tier modular components?
06-15-2012, 01:27 AM
Is it possible in the game engine for the modular components of ships to be used on any type?
Say, Constitution nacelles on an Intrepid, or Luna science pod on a Galaxy?
The models exist...there are attachment points, I'm guessing, defined for each ship. What's preventing the ultimate mix and match starship creations?
Guess I'm tired of the same looking Oddys flying around.
I can understand a restriction for scaling purposes...imagine Defiant nacelles on a Sov...but if the relative sizes are in the same ballpark, why can't I pop Excelsior nacelles on a Sov? Or quad engines onto a Luna?
Just a curious real life kitbasher who'd like to do the same in game...
