The Ice Shard
"An ice-cold ship that will give everything a frosty time - Including the Pilot!"
Image
A new Christmas ship idea. I thought about having a frost-themed ship that has some unique stats and a unique weapon along with it. The weapon is transferable and can be used on any ship. It's a medium DPS low power use kinetic weapon, good for several scenarios in this game. Well, onward with the stats of this ship.

The stats:
It has a good base health and a good base armor but horrible shield capacity and regeneration. It is a health based ship that has the capability of being converted into a shield based ship. However, it won't benefit as much from the specials, as one special stat will give this ship a health regeneration.

Health: 7
Armor: 6
Shield: 1
Sh. R.: 1

Premanufactured:
It comes with a level 2 Hull and a level 1 Power as preinstalled upgrades.

The Specials:
+ 20% Kinetic damage
+ 15% Power Capacity
+0.5% Health regen/s

The weapon: Blizzard Cannon
Image
The blizzard cannon is a high rate of fire weapon with medium range and a medium DPS, similar to the Gatling gun. Additionally this weapon's projectiles can penetrate, good for taking out crowds of enemies. Overall a good amount of damage that can be dealt. Compared to the Gatling gun, this weapon has a higher spread and a shorter range.

Damage: 38 (Kinetic)
Fire rate: 32.0
Range: 250 pixels
Proj. Speed: 250 pixels/s
Power use: 4/s (with maxed out power)
Difficulty: Medium

Special:
- Piercing shots!

Upgrades:
Level 1: +24% Damage
Level 2: +10% Range, +18% rate of fire
Level 3: +35% Damage, +10% Projectile speed
Level 4: +22% Rate of fire, +38% Damage
Level 5: +15% Range, +10% Projectile speed
Level 6: +64% Damage, +30% Rate of Fire, -15% Power use

Elite Tech:
Up to +50% Direct damage.
Up to +35% Rate of Fire.
Up to +40% Increased Range.
Up to +25% Projectile speed.
Up to +10% Stacking Kinetic DoT over 4 seconds.

(Could look like this... or so.)

Pretty nice, the only thing I'm not a fan of is the stacking dot ET. Even though it'll be the only one of its kind if it gets implemented.

Also unsure about the stacking D.O.T. elite tech... but I love it otherwise! Maybe make the weapon have a higher spread/lower range? Like Acid Spray with range elite tech spread, but with fast projectiles, so it goes in front of your ship?

Show respect even to people who don't deserve it, not as a reflection of their character, but a reflection of yours :)
