I have been working on designing a ship that is able to fight pirate NPCs. I have essentially made a somwhat large sphere-shaped starship with 3 decks with weapons and shields. The problem is it is sluggish to manuver so it's dificult to bring the weapons to bear and the shields can't take much punishment.
The ship is powered by an attempted 5x5x5 reactor from here: http://wiki.starmade.rtag.me/wiki/index.php?title=Power_Management
I would appreciate any suggestions.
