So the idea is that 2 ships which are the same ( 2 drakes , 2 avatars , 2 whatever ) fit this "Ship Link Bridge" module in a high/mid slot and now for the miracle. THEY COMBINE , haha not really

The module can only be activated if a same ship within ( let's say 10k) has it equipped and can run it.
So this beast activates and the 2 ships form a link between them, now be careful:

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN LINK IS ACTIVE:

Cap recharge rate is taken from the ship with a higher one and applied to the other
Shield/armor hp is taken from the one with higher hp and applied to the other one
They DO NOT SHARE ANY FORM OF DPS
Drone control range is taken from the ship with a longer one and applied to the other
The resists from the ship with better ones are taken and applied to the weaker one
Signature radius doubles of each of the ships
Sensor strength doubles of each of the ships
scan resolution stay the same on both of them duh
They cannot warp while link is activated ( this is not siege , nor triage)
They can be effected by ecm ( link should be really hard to break , but it should be doable)


So why this insanity you might ask?
An example:
You bring a brick tanked "tengu/drake whatever really" and I bring a full dps of the same ship , I can not tank anything but can kill stuff , you can do the opposite. When we link , you give me tank/cap racharge / wahtever and we are both happy :P

Before you comment just think how awesome this is :D


^^ All of that is now old and oblivious except for the active description. We have moved to Alpha and Omega , the beginning and the end as the sole receivers of this awesome link ... don't ask long story

p.s Thank god you can't downvote this post \o/ \o/ \o/
p.s.s Hate discussion , best discussion and oh that matter TEST ALLIANCE BEST ALLIANCE

1- Make your whole fleet in pair
2- half the pair is fully buffer fit (extender/plates only) half are resist fit (invuln/eanm/hardners only)
3- ???????
4- WTF is this BS???????

Oh I know then:

Scrap the module idea:

Now imagine two ships : Alpha + Omega ( cruisers or whatever)
That can only link to each other with a built in high mod
That you way, all you haters win , and so do I

:D muhahahahaha

Here is a legit reason why:

It is overpowered.

Ships are balanced so you have to choose between dps, tank, EWAR counter measures, and the like. This essentially allows your two ships to have twice as many "slots".

With your drake example: one drake focus's on Buffer and the other focus on resists creating crazy tanked monstrosities. This would not be good for the game.

Did you read the reply above you? I don't think so + EVE is lacking in directly complementing ships

You renamed it from ship linking to alpha and omega.... but didn't explain what "linking" meant. I assumed it meant the same stuff you posted in the Op.

And ships do complement each other. The just don't go all voltron to do it. You bring complementary EWAR so you and your fleet mates can put optimal damage on a target. You tank the same way to make the most out of logistics. You match fleet boosts (warfare links) with your gang type to optimize its performance. You assign drones to a drone bunny specifically fit to take advantage of the drones. You share cap transfers to improve the available cap of ships.

Some call this balance. You either fit gank, tank, or a mix that does neither too well.


Stats like cap regen are in place for some ships as well for a reason.


That and support ships exist for this very reason. Want more tank, boosters. Cap....boosters as well (the mods to reduce cap use on rep cycles) and natural boosts to hp levels and resist levels as well. Or cap transfer logi/whatever ship you want (ie. tinker setups).

I won't even dignify this thread with a response.




DAMN

CODE is just a bunch of pirates; smart, organized pirates. It doesn't help to rage at them because that is exactly what they want. Dust yourself off and get back on your feet, you don't even have to talk to them.

Someones been watching a little bit too much...
Well which show was it, Gurren Lagann? Or maybe Gunbuster.

Not gonna lie, as lulzy as fusing transforming ships would be, the sheer amount of rebalance time, and testing time to build the new system from scratch would be... kinda pointless.
