I posted this on reddit, but was encouraged to post it here, as well..
The Laeosa Research Warbird
(rom) and the Naj'sov Research Vessel
(kdf) are the faction equivalent for the Sutherland Advanced Research Vessel (a.k.a. the T6 Nebula).
They all get the Console - Universal - Tachyon Particle Field Emitter
, but only the T6 Nebula can equip the Console - Universal - Tachyon Detection Grid
(TDG). Also because of that, they don't get the 2pc set bonus.
I'd like to see it allowed on all "Research Vessels", which includes the Laeosa and the Naj'sov and their fleet equivalents. Consequently, giving them the 2pc bonus, as well. To be clear, I'm not asking for the TDG to be unrestricted. I just want Nebula equivalents to get access to it.
For those concerned that the TDG is too OP to be equipped on ships that can cloak, I'd like to make a few points.
- The big buff given by the TDG is AoE and the caster (person flying the nebula) doesn't actually get the +15% StealthSight buff. They get a much smaller StealthSight buff.
- Since the TDG is AoE, there's no restriction on who can get that +15% StealthSight bonus. Meaning, even players that can cloak get the big buff.
- The buff the caster gets is equivalent to the Console - Universal - Tachyon Detection Field (TDF), which comes with the T3 Nebula. That console is unrestricted.
- The TDF is disabled while cloaked. You can only trigger it while uncloaked. I'd like the TDG to work the same. Perhaps even preventing the ship from cloaking while the TDG is active.
