I've added a new theorectical tech called Minitaurization. Right now, it's only purpose is the Miniaturization mount.

but a thought occured to me that I'm hoping for some feedback on.
Would it be a good idea if advancement in Miniaturization had a (relatively minor) effect on the size of facilities? By minor, I'm thinking at max level (10) it would be a 10%-20% reduction in facility kt size.

To minimize a land area borrowed by a facility may be more suitable an Advanced building technology or similar.

Miniaturisation should be applied to all aspects where something is, well, you know, miniaturised. Smile

For example, in the default game and many mods I have seen you just get given the miniature version of something when ever you reach that specific tech level.

For me, this certainly takes away from the experience.

I am not left having to make 'difficult' decisions on if I should up another level on that gun or spend that money miniaturising it for my smaller vessels.

By smaller vessels I also mean Frigates and destroyers etc.

I would like to see that we have a weapon situation where a player has to make compromises and try and be more strategic.

I also think that miniaturisation should also have a general affect on ship tonnage costs.

Cheers,

Teddy Bär

I agree with you! How I have it now is that Mini tech gives you a mount that you can use on components if you want. But since you can't have mounts on facilities, I thought it would be good to have facilities reduce in size automatically based on Mini Tech. Kind of like developing better construction habits. Though the amount that facilities would not be huge. More like a nice extra benifit than a huge advantage. I also plan on having different sizes of facilities as well so that not everything is 1000 kt.
