So, you DN_ guys out there, if you want to make Cattaro really unique - make its primary weapon deal damage to energy, and let it donate its energy to allies. That's part of why I wanted less reliance on shields. It would let Cattaro justify donating some of its power to other pilots, rather than going "NO, all mine!" in the middle of battle. It could be a fun direction for the ship!
I never thought of dealing damage to energy ... And when energy is gone ... Then it DPS's?
That is a very unique thought and plan, The main idea I had was, as you deal damage with the primary weapon, say half the damage you deal, heals the closest ship / ships.
I thought that would be very neat to see, now I am torn, Or a combo of both ... lol
Maybe when it deals damage to energy it heals allies close by? Or gives allies the energy it steals?
Or, you deal deal damage to allies it gifts it, like above to allies, then heals them when you deal damage to enemies when there is no energy to steal???
