First I'd like to Stardock for making this game I am enjoying it immensely.
I brought a carrier mercenary and the problematic Drengin who were fighting me to a standstill turned into an absolute pushover in fact I think i will literally be able to ROFLSTOMP the rest of the map with this ship. I've read that carriers were overpowered but since i hadn't encountered one before today I had no opinion. I don't think i will use them in future games unless the AI is using then because to me they feel overpowered.
What if carriers had to be supplied with fighters instead of endlessly refreshed drones. I admit i have no idea how hard this would be to program or if that is even feasible but I think this small change would make carriers much more balanced. Say a carrier can hold 9 fighters but can only send 3 active at a time or even make the carrier modules hold more fighters but unable to go on extended campaigns with out returning to friendly territory to restock it's fighters.
Thank you for reading this post.
