RJ_falcon
--------------------------------
Description:
--------------------------------

AAdds the Corellian Engineering Corporations YT-1300 Light Freighter (Millennium Falcon) from Star Wars to the game.

That's three hulls, a radar dish, and a quad laser turret.

Pirates may also spawn in this hull.

With Expanded Traders, this mod will also have traders spawn in the YT-1300 hull

--------------------------------
Detailed Description:
--------------------------------

This mod actually adds a couple of things to the game:

The YT-1300 hull
----------------

The YT-1300 is first and foremost a freighter, with a fairly high cargo capacity.
It's a hardy ship, with two 360 degree tier 2 energy turrets, and a slow moving energy
slot intended for the radar attachment (see below).
The high cargo capacity and armour rating comes at a cost of maneuverability.

Stats:

Structure Value: 4300
Armor Value: 6
Cargo Capacity: 600
Maneuverability: -40%

There is a Millennium Falcon variant with beefed stats and a missile slot, as well as a
variant with a clone wars era paint job (no stat change).


The Radar dish attatchment (takes up an energy weapon slot)
-----------------------------------------------------------

Technically a Tier 1 Energy weapon, this device acts to compliment the existing radar
array, increasing its range, targiting speed and targiting range. The cost is the fact
that it takes up an energy weapon slot.
This can be used an any hull that has an energy weapon slot.

Stats:

Radar Range: +15
Radar Targeting Range: +10
Radar Targeting Speed: +50
Energy Consumption: 1


Quad Laser Turret (Energy Tier 2)
-----------------------------------------------------------

Adds what is basically an updated version of the plasma cannon, firing Star Wars style energy bolts.


(Optional) Millenium Falcon themed avatar items
-----------------------------------------------------------

Adds avatar items to the game, so when you create your caracter, you are able to re-create
Han Solo, Lando Calarissian, or even Chewbacca.

Please note that this will also affect NPCs, and they may have these face-parts (or even be a Wookie!)
