Are there any planes in it (when yes which and how much)
Looks a Bit like the acclamator class

For your second point I would like to refer you to the thread started by StormCommando, below.
I can’t remember where answers are for the first, but I do remember carrying capacity being discussed on one of the threads.

It can’t be classified as a frigate according to the Anaxes war college system. By its length it is classified as a heavy cruiser

You must be new here.

You may classify it however you like. I write game stats for a D6 forum, and if I end up really liking the finished product, I’ll likely end up classifying this ship as a Heavy Cruiser or Light Star Destroyer on that stat. That doesn’t require fractalsponge to alter his classification system to fit mine, and the fandom is more than big enough for both perspectives to exist with room to spare.

On top of that, the Anaxes System is crap. To quote a guy on the D6 forum (who is also a History Professor), the Anaxes System has little military value beyond impressing politicians and uninformed civilians. Form follows function, and size is a subset of form. A system that classifies vessels purely by size fails to take into account the far more important classification of mission.

Thanks for the statement

You’re welcome. If I might make a suggestion, simply telling the man he’s wrong on his own website might not get you the response you’re hoping for. A better alternative would be:

Hey, fractalsponge, I’ve noticed that your ship classification system doesn’t adhere to the Anaxes system. Why is that, and can you explain the system you do use and the reasoning behind it?

Hello there

Yeah I’m new here and too naive so thanks a lot for the suggestion.

Fantastic, have been looking forward to this since the first preview! It’s an instant favourite. The protruding hunchback bridge, the hull’s low angle, and broad sweeping wedge-shape gives it a real elegance. Going by the bridge I am guessing it’s between 750 and 850 metres long. Reactor draw… 2e24w?

I wonder why capital ships and smaller craft don’t use droid brains or computers to fire their weapons than actual people since droids can react a lot quicker than organic and shooting things don’t require a lot of experience for a droid

One the droids has less probability of improves and two it takes a lot less space and maintenance for person compared to Droid

In Star Wars, droids are often regarded as sub-sentient entities, with organics having better instincts and judgement than droids, even at the expense of faster reaction time. Although this can be build up with time, droids that don’t go through regular memory wipes will develop personalities away from the baseline (refer to Artoo’s attitude) and the last thing you need is a turret that feels like it doesn’t feel like shooting anymore or that the best solution to solve the conflict is to do friendly fire. And if you choose to endure less effective gunnery droids over that risk, periodic… Read more »

Totally unrelated to this ship, but what would happen if some engineering decided to combine the designs of a mon calamari ship and an imperial one? Like how effective would a ship with redunted mon calamari shields and have the firepower of an ssd with point defence be? (I know ssd don’t have point defence, I meant it as a part of the mon calamari ship)

EU has Mon Cal equipping their ships with three times as many shield generators as Imperial ships do. This mean more redundancy, more shield strength, and high shield recharge. Mon Cal ship could have one shield generator be active while the other two stand by. Then take the first offline to recharge and bring the second online. Repeat for third. This would be one way how they do it.

Acclimator III?

It’s supposed to be it’s predecessor

Nope Fractal said this ship is a fleet variant as in a warship while the Acclamator was a assault ship which mostly carried ground vehicles.

Well, it does look like an Acclamator plundered its bank account to buy beefed up armor and more weapons for itself, although the bridge looks more Venator-esque to me. What’s this baby gonna be called? Adiutor-class Star Frigate? Adiutor means literally “helper” or “Assistant” in latin and would be in line with the usual Republic name theme.

Acclamator for fleet combat? Sounds like an Acclamator II-class to me. Though given the armaments and thrusters I see, And I’d like to designate it a rapid response cruiser.

Is it still around 700m long ?

Well last time I check the Acclamator is 752 meters in length so this might be the same length.

Valoren

Yeah, but we all know the Empire has a strong tendancy to do everything bigger.

i normally prefer an even number of barrels on weapon systems but i just love that triple barrel TL battery design of yours

gorkmalork

Seconded WRT those triples (70 teraton?), though Fractal’s snazzy ball turrets take the top spot for me. I take it said trips are the heaviest energy weapon this Acc-gunboat has the juice to efficiently wield?

Chris Bradshaw

They seem like they might be the same guns as the axial battery on the ISD. Triples just look great in general, whether they’re on the Rodney, Iowa, or Imperator.

Hey fractal, what program do you use to make your models?

I think you are an awesome designer, and modeler, I would love to see your take on the TOR Thanatos Frigate aka updated Hammerhead….

Great Job

I have been hoping you would work on this and glad to see it, love the shape of the acclamator and it really can pack some firepower in a small package.

hangers is my guess, like the Imperial frigate

Ah, a fresh mental picture of the Comarre Meridian. This fills a much needed spot in the ORBAT, with an interesting hangar configuration.

Excellent. IT LIVES!!!! I’ve been hoping you’d get back to this one! Would it be possible to suggest a name for this things? Maybe it could be the Centax Heavy Frigate which is mentioned in the books but never depicted? Just a thought. Take it for what you will. I like the look of the thing already though!

Nice to see you brought back the heavy frigate Fractal but in the same detail as the Imperator redux that is just even better than I though.

Sweet, the Acclamator’s pricklier sibling takes a couple steps closer to launch-and with a familiar hangar layout from some now-Legendized Dark Horse material.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen this hull. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
