Project discovery: Future discoveries

I'm stocked to see you have expanded on the project discovery idea. I have a few suggestions on future project discovery themes you could consider.

1 Project Hephaisitos: the surch for extraterrestrial civilizations to far away for communications.

2 Project Foldit: Solving protein structures for science.

Oh, and one more thing. Could you please give the Navy Domi a buff so it can used in lv4 missions. That would be great!

There are two kinds of children that play in sandboxes. Those who build castles and those who kick them down. It's a symbiosis.

It's funny the Dominix used to be one of the go-to ship for level 4 missions, sitting close to the Raven in terms of popularity IIRC.
They received an overhaul making them even more drone centric, and made the Navy version a beefed up copy of the original.

If you don't follow the rules, neither will I.

I found it quite interesting that the announcement for Project Discovery's expansion came at the exact same day as when NASA announced the discovery of 7 earth-sized exoplanets in the Trappist-1 system. What made it even more interesting is the fact that only are those exoplanets likely all have water in some form (ice, vapor, liquid) but the system is located in the constellation Aquarius. LOL

How CANT you use a Dominix in L4's?!

I'm interested in these projects for sure, but I'm baffled at what's giving you trouble in the navy domi. Link your fit?

I don't like linking fits here because it attracts gankers, sorry. Not my fault. However...
I'm not a mission runner per se. I mainly do HQ incursions and explorations, but every now and then I like to relax and do some missions. Sometimes I use a Rattlesnake with t2 rapid heavys so I can get em frigates while my heavy drones go to work. The tank is nice. I also like the Barghest with t2 rapid heavys. The range is awesome (with scripts) and the light drones can work on the frigates while the missiles go to work. So both can take care of frigates and larger rats at the same time, while the former uses tank and the latter uses range as their flavor to stay alive.
Now, I love the domi hull. It's beautiful, but can it tank while providing dps? Can it pull range while providing dps? Are there other ways to avoid needing to warp of site while still having enough dps? I'm all ears

The Dominix Navy Issue is a very large Vexor and your fitting may be wrong.

Both the Vexor and Navy Dominix have a turret and drone damage bonus and for the sake of everything, none of them is a Curse.

This is the law of ship progression!

Those are some neat ideas you've got for expanding Project Discovery!

But is there really ANY battleship in this game that can't do level 4 missions?

I was hoping you'd figure it out on your own.

It's one of the best ships for that particular role. It doesn't have the best tank overall (not by a long shot), but it can really easily DPS while doing really anything else.

You could armor tank it and fit webs and painters in the mids, or shield tank it and put damage mods in the lows. Either way, you can stick large railguns up top and use both the guns and the drones to really nail those battleship NPCs to the proverbial wall. When you need to shoot something smaller, switch to a smaller set of drones. You don't need more than just the drones for the small ships. If you're struggling with a small ship, check your damage type and add a painter or web if need be (for instance against spider drones).

If you can't get a high rate of repair, try slapping on more buffer tank and use the high DPS to take out the hardest hitters before they become a problem. Also use EVE-Survival to make sure you aren't attacking the wrong ships.

You can run level four missions in a drake.

If you are having trouble running them in a navy battleship, then you are doing something very, very wrong.
