One of the most important factors is the ratio between your ship's value and the total value of the ships you destroyed. This is probably like the main factor in determining your medal. Also hyperspacing seems to have a negative effect on medals as well, not just ejecting. Its not as bad as ejecting...

The thing is, you start as a Lieutenant because you are already leading a squadron. It doesn't make sense for an ensign to lead a squadron so that's why you start at a higher rank.

I really am not sure what I think of repair bots. I've been trying ships with and without them. I haven't reached a personal decision yet, so I haven't voted in my poll yet.

Repair bots

What are people's opinions on repair bots? Are they really useful or can the space be used for better things? They can be useful especially when they fix command centers, engines, and missile bays I guess, but they can't fix armor. Some people are of the opinion that maybe by the time your inner com...

i think that tiger would be the best wingmate
Yeah they do make really good wingmates. I once had one that survived over ten missions.

I'm going to go with the Eagle class because they pack a lot of firepower with 4 missile bays and plectrons and are also quite affordable. You can use them at early missions, which is nice. I almost went with the Phantoms because of their combinatin of firepower and good stealth, which is very usefu...

What is your favorite class of default ship?

Well, what are everyones' favorite default ships? I used the most advanced ship of each class to represent its whole ship family. Hmmmm, I don't know which is mine yet. I'll have to think about it. I couldn't fit all of the classes into the poll so if your favorite is not up there, then just post it.

But its a big part of the game. I get damaged and killed by friendlies just as much as by enemies. Anyway, the risk has to always be there. How would you program it out, make friendly missiles go through you? That would be too unrealistic I think.

I've been trying out plectrons a lot more since people seem to like them a lot and have gotten surprisingly good results. I've killed more ships than I ever had in a single missions using plectrons. They are a lot easier to use than I thought. Though I still do like yataris. Using a cloaked ship loa...

Hey n-drx

I downloaded your roll of honour reader and I have an obvious glitch. It says all of my commanders were Ryckurn, which is not true. Just thought you might want to know about this. It is a nice program.

And while we are on this topic, I have to ask, what is the criteria for being promoted? Successes? Medals? Number of missions flown? Kills? The number of successes seems to be the big facot, but other things seem to play some role in it too.

Questions about Medals

Hey does anyone know or think they have a good idea of what affects what medal you get? Its obvious that killing strong ships helps the most while destroying your own really hurts. The strength of your ship is another obvious factor. But there are lots of other factors that i'm not sure about. Does ...
