Ordnance Weapons

Ordnance-based ship weapons require ordnance to be able to function.

  • Ordnance weapons aren't blocked by shields (energy-based weapons are blocked by shields but typically do more damage than ordnance weapons when shields are down/not installed)
  • If a ship's ordnance supply runs out they can't function again until it's replenished (unlike energy-based weapons which never need to be replenished)
  • Missiles and torpedoes can damage multiple targets from a single strike due to the splash radius
  • Ordnance is generated by transferring limbalt into a ship's ordnance module where it is then stored ready for use
  • It's not possible to design a ship with ordnance weapons without including an ordnance module (which takes up additional space)
  • Are generally cheaper than energy-based weapons (which also require Ziryl in their construction)

Cannons (fixed mount)

  • Require a clear line of fire to a target (unable to fire at a target if another ship in the fleet is in - or moves into - the way)
  • Cannot move independently of the ship (unable to fire at a target not directly within its line of fire)

  • Require a clear line of fire to a target (unable to fire at a target if another ship in the fleet is in - or moves into - the way)
  • Can move independently of the ship to track and fire at a moving target (indicated by the AS angular speed property)

Rockets (missiles and torpedoes)

  • Do not require a clear line of fire to a target (can strike any target in a fleet even if other ships are in the way)
  • Other ships within the splash radius of the target may also take damage (ships positioned close to each other in a fleet are vulnerable)

Orbital bombers

Orbital bombers are ordnance-based ship weapons that are used to launch orbital strikes against a planet's surface to destroy buildings and colony population.

Minelayers are ordnance-based ship weapons that are used to deploy minefields to cause damage to non-friendly fleets.

  • Research: the technology that must be researched to unlock a weapon for use
  • Size: Small, Medium or Large (the ship slot size it can be attached to)
  • PC (Power Consumption): (In MWt required for Energy weapons or Shells per volley for Ballistic)
  • RPM (Rounds per min): number of rounds that can be fired per minute
  • DPR (Damage per round): the damage each round delivers
  • DPS (Damage per sec): average damage done per second based on RPM and DPR
  • Splash: splash radius in meters for rockets (all ships within this range are affected as if directly struck themselves - and as with all ordnance weapons, shields are no defense)
  • FT (Flight time): time to travel from launcher to target
  • AS (Angular speed): speed of turret rotation in degrees per second
  • Fa (Farsu): cost in farsu (added to ship total farsu cost)
  • Zi (Ziryl): cost in ziryl (added to ship total ziryl cost)
  • Credits: cost in credits (added to ship total credit cost)
