Most ships (and buildings) have one or several special abilities. they are defined in the battle syntax.

play a bit with the Ship Constructor to find out more

here is a list of all possible modifiers a ship can have:

jamming

some ships have the ability to jam other ships. if a ship is jammed it cannot fight anymore, and the next ship of the other player has its turn, this means, the enemy ship is treated as if it had already shot and you have the initiative back

if a ship jams an enemy ship, it puts the shoot-counter one up, so the enemy ship counts as "has already shot" the only effect that could make this ship shoot would be the ...

This list is incomplete. Please add to it, if possible.

example:

100 EMP-fighter vs 100 destroyer i.g. all destroyers are jammed this way ( exception: the player with the destroyers shoots first, then in this battle one EMP-fighter would be destroyed)

cloning

the clone ship transforms into the cloned ship, until end of combat. it has exactly the same abilitys like the original.

reconstruction

a reconstructor-ship reanimates disabled ships (ships with 0 lifepoints). ships with less lifepoints than 0 are completely destroyed and cannot be reconstruted. examples: - a destroyer that was hit by a destroyer has 0 LP and can be reconstructed - a fighter hit by an eagle (2/10) cannot be reconstructed because it has -1 lifepoint


All Effects

mod

modify ships AP and/or LP in the battle

fight

this just means that the ships fires now with it's AP.

create

creates one or more other ships (like missiles, battle drones but could also create fighters or sth. like that) and these ships appear in the specified class immediately with all their abilities (depricated syntax: 'add')

shield

moves the targetcounter of the enemy to your next ship (if all your ships are shielded or destroyed your shielded ships will not reappear for the next classbattle)

destroy

destroys a ship and leaves it with 0 LP. (it is still reconstructable this way). weakest destruction effect, destroyed ships have 0 LP and can be reconstructed

kill

destroys a ship and leaves it with -5000 LP second weakest destruction effect, killed ships cannot be reconstructed, but some ships or buildings are kill-resistent

obliterate

destroys a ship and leaves it with -5000 LP (not reconstructable). most effective destruction effect, nearly no ship is immune against that

recycle

recycles the ship like back home in the shipyard. the target is removed from the battle (obliterate-effect) but nobody wins or looses points for it

repair

repairs your ship that is the actual target of your enemy in your fleet back to full lifepoints (AP stay like they are)

shuffle

this function shuffles the battleorder of the selected class in the selected fleet. note: this is only useful, if you have created ships and you want to change the battle order that way, that they do not shoot all in one row. or if this ship is modifying ships and you want to assure, that there is another ship modified every time and not only one ship all the time. for example the l-prom (modify 10 ships by +10 in class 2 from out of class 1) needs this because otherwise it would modify the same 10 first ships in class 2 again and again. with shuffle it will modify other ships each time

sd

selfdestruction. if this ship has its turn, it selfdestructs at the end of its turn

blast

destroys already damaged ships in the specified class and fleet (like the bounty hunter)

clone

clones the enemy ship that is the actual target

steal

steals the enemy ship that is the actual target

beserk

with this option the ship will continue shooting until it is destroyed. note: only very few ships have this effect, cause this modifier should be used with care, cause it can have unpredictable loop-effects

retreat

ends the actual class battle

disable

disables all abilities of the specified ships (for example a mine deployer does not deploy its mine anymore)

evolve

this only happens at the end of the whole battle. the ship becomes the new ship.

restart

all your ships that survived so far start for another shoot (your counter is set back to your first ship). note: this modifier should be used with care, cause it can have unpredictable loop-effects

select

an effect only occurs if the target ships has less/more/equal mp/lp/ap than a specific value. if the targeted ship has less/more/equal the selected value the rest of the modifier will not be executed.
