Missile Hardpoints: 8
Hull: 7
Energy Cores: 5
Fuel: 4 (2,000 units)
Cargo Slots: 7

Ship Components Installed:
Engine: 10
5 Resistor Packs
Titanium Plating
Energy Module
Ascent MkII Wing System

Performance Ratings:
Mass: 80
Structural: 78
Energy: 73
Heat: 34
Firepower: 31
Agility Rating: 32

Share what you use/think is the best! Also don't be afraid what your preferred primary/secondary weapons are!

I don't know about best. Once I got a ship that was adequate for what I wanted to do. I just kept it. I'm in a raptor. My config is -

1 Crew
6 equipment hardpoints
4 Hull plating
3 fuel tanks
10 cargo bays

I'm unarmed so I don't need to put anything into weapons or energy cores.

Thanks for starting this thread Darklyte. Interesting to see stats on other peoples ships. As Satano says, "best" doesn't really exist. It just depends what role you need your ship for.

I'm presently configured for construction... so heavy defensive capabilities and minimal offensive.

Here's my current set-up:

Frame: Leviathon
Crew: 2
Equipment Slots: 9
Countermeasures: 2x25
Missile Hardpoints: 3
Armour Plating: 10
Energy Cores: 10
Fuel: 2 (1000 units)
Cargo slots: 10

Ship Components Installed:
Engine 10
5 resistor packs
Reactive hull plating
Thruster module
Aerovoch MkII wing system

Performance Ratings:
Mass level: 87
Structural: 91
Energy level: 79
Heat Factor: 50
Firepower: 48
Agility Rating: 26
Atmospheric: 14
Acceleration-deceleration: 36
Fuel efficiency: 10
Range: 20

I'd be interested to see how the performance ratings compare with you guys.

I really like how you laid that out Sinbad, so I copied you Razz I edited my original post with more information.

And I'm sorry I took ages to respond, I've been very busy IRL and sick as a dog (a very annoying combination)

Yeah we've all been pretty busy lately it seems. I've been meaning to post my specs too but on top of life making me adult and stuff, I ran into a technical issue with the game that I just resolved this morning. Hope you feel better, darklyt.

I hope you're feeling better darklyt750. Real life has been kicking me in the ass lately also. Hopefully I can jump on this weekend and post the more detailed specs to my ship.

Hope you're recovering Darklyt! Thanks for updating your post with your ship stats. A quick question for you, what's your main type of activity with this frame set-up?

It depends on my mood when I get on the game. Sometimes I feel like mining, then I might do combat or just explore a little bit. I have the extra crew slots for a Navigation Officer, Science Officer, and Weapons Officer, which I have yet to find any good ones.

I'm still not sure if I like the combat capabilities of my frame, I still have moments where I get insta-sploded against ships, but it could be my skills (or lack-there-of Razz)

If you want to boost the Centurion's combat capabilities, the first step is to add a little more maneuverability by replacing your reactive plating with composite plating, then you can add things into harpoints such as a cannnon relay system and cannon heatsinks to increase your fire rate and time. I fly a leviathan setup as an explorer/combat hybrid. I'll try hard to get on today and post my specs.

I'd be interested to see your specs Sanctus, as I fly a leviathan too. Your suggestion about replacing reactive plating, was that for Darklyte? just asking because he seems to be using titanium plating which I guess is something else (or is it the same?). I've got reactive plating. I use it because of it's extra defence against missile impacts. From your choice of composite plating, am I right to infer that you favour agility over amour when it comes to combat?

Oops, looks like I lied. I must have returned to the Centurion frame a while ago and forgot. I recall the Leviathan being a litte too heavy for my taste. Felt like driving a hovercraft, but the specs were pretty much the same with perhaps the only minor changes being more armor plating and missile hardpoints. Anyway, here are my current specs.

Frame: Centurion
Energy:10
Cargo Bay: 10
Fuel Tank: 1000
Crew: 3
Equipment: 10
1. Shield Battery X5
2. Mantis Jump Drive
3. Cannon Relay Sys
4. Cannon Heatsink
5. Repair Sys C3
6. Metal Mining Beam
7. Deploy Constructor
8. Build Constructor
9. Terrain Walker
10. Target Scanner
(Stored Alternate: Stealth Generator)  

CM: 1x25
Hardpoints: 2 (Leech)
Armor: 6

Mass Level: 64
Structural: 76
Energy Level: 72
Heat Factor: 92
Firepower: 92 (Custom Fusion Particle>83Y/180R/21C, Custom Fusion Laser>62Y/11C

Agility Rating: 34
Atmospheric: 25
Accel/Decel: 44
Fuel Efficiency: 14
Range: 20

Engines: Quantum Mk II
Resistor: 5 Packs
Plating: Composite
Modules: Thruster
Wing Sys: Aerovoch Mk II

I consider this build a Combat/Exploration hybrid. The Thruster module and Composite plating negate a little of the extra mass by adding maneuverability. I chose to make my custom cannons and beam weapons with high yields (though the particle cannons are so badass that I rarely use my beam weapons), then compensated the added energy consumption and heat output by equipping Cannon Heatsinks, and a Cannon Relay Sys. The Repair Sys C3 helps to repair damage done in multiple waypoint engagements in between battles, or if I got chewed up in deep space and can't get to a station quickly while critical systems are damaged.

If I'm intentionally taking the Centy into combat (Especially PvP), I store my TW and equip a Stealth Generator. I keep Leech missiles equipped, which knock out navigation and weapons for a short time. One of my preferred methods for taking a target out is to cloak with the Stealth Gen, fly within range of the target and match speed, then decloak, let loose a Leech to blind and cripple them, then unload with my high yield cannons, which can usually destroy a ship within a single energy bank cycle.

If done properly, the target never knows what hit them. One minute nothing's there, then you hear a VERY quick missile warning, and BAM, your HUD and weapons go dead, and all hell breaks loose. (I know, I've been on the receiving end of this terrifying technique, and survived to tell about it thanks to Ghost Fleet's superior station construction Wink
