Now THAT's some feedback! But really, thanks Fractalite, these are all some solid points. When I built the ship, I wasn't really considering PvP much so having a fair amount of feedback in that regard is very helpful (especially as I don't yet have any experience with PvP combat in Empyrion). Originally it was meant more for attacking POIs or scouting in PvE. Used the Plasma/Railguns combo so you could attack from further out but still pack a significant punch. As for the way she handles, I kind of made it a point not to have it handle perfectly... honestly wanted something that moved a bit like she looked. That said, I'll most definitely be tweaking it until she's pitch perfect for the next published iteration, and keep the more dumbed-down version for myself. Thanks again for the great constructive criticism, and keep an eye to the sky for the inevitable Nightingale Mk-II!
