But then a person could have a chain of bio beams and mechabeams to cause near invincibility.

This could be solved in a few ways:

1. Have "beam slots", effectively limiting the healing effect that ships can have
2. Create an energy depleting weapon, which causes a ship to lose energy constantly, causing a small amount of damage in the process (due to the conversion of energy into heat). This would eventually make it unfeasible to run such beams (presuming that they consume a large amount of energy)
3. Implement a process in which a ship can detect when it is combat. When combat is detected, beam devices would have its healing effect reduced drastically (Say, 10% of normal healing rate)

Just possible solutions to this theoretical abuse problem.

Or just have them take a lot of weapon slots.

2. Create an energy depleting weapon, which causes a ship to lose energy constantly, causing a small amount of damage in the process (due to the conversion of energy into heat). This would eventually make it unfeasible to run such beams (presuming that they consume a large amount of energy)

Yeah, much like a cloaking field, this could make it so that say, 70 percent of the energy of a dropship would be on the healbeam. It might be able to move, or hold up the shields, but not both. Then a Cruiser can shoot people, fight, and move, and heal. But it would have to take some weapons offline.

3. Implement a process in which a ship can detect when it is combat. When combat is detected, beam devices would have its healing effect reduced drastically (Say, 10% of normal healing rate)

I would have to play around with the balance, but 30 % seems about right to me. Also, a fleet can be in combat but a medic ship, if it hasn't shot at an unfriendly ship or been shot, it has full heal.

Just possible solutions to this theoretical abuse problem.

I like it.

What about gas mining? we'll need hydrogen for fusion reactors and nukes; oxygen for life support, changing hostile atmosphere, and fuel for missiles/explosives; and methane and propane for cooking and cheap generators.

NECRO
i wish it to be such that you can only develop in one area. such as: developing energy weapons, and similer things, you woulden't think of useing, say, missiles, because you already have a weapon. since you don't use gunpowder, you nver think of explosions, so you don't create explosions on the other's ship until they show you that it exists, and works

You´re supposed to label it with NECRO.

I never really figured out what exactly a necro is with all the exceptions and stuff.
Care to tell me accurately?

A necropost is a post in a thread that has been without new posts for a long time. The time required for it to be a necropost varies, but in general a few weeks is enough. They're annoying for a number of reasons. If your post is constructive, it's OK. If you're reviving a 7-month-old thread to say 'Oh yEah ive dun that' it's not. If a thread has been stickied, it's intended for long-term viewing and is thus exempt from normal necroposting rules. I'm sure someone else will come along and add something else, but this is a good working definition.

No, you're not. It's annoying and serves no practical purpose.
