What do you guys think of capital ships in an expansion pack for this game or galactic Battlegrounds 2?
Either Toy box units in scenario editor or added to airbases? I prefer adding to the airbases.
I would like to see them all in there.
Such as:
Empire:
Super Star Destroyers(Airbase or Toy box unit)
Star Destroyer Imperial Class I (Airbase or Toy box unit)
Star Destroyer imperial Class II (Airbase or Toy box unit)
Imperial Lamda Class Shuttles(Airbase)
Tie Advanced Fighter (Airbase)
Upgrade Airbase to allow the player to make Tie Fighters, Tie Interceptor, Tie Defender, Tie Bomber, and Imperial Lander at the same time without the upgrades.
NO MORE CRAPPY IMPERAIAL STAR DESTROYERS, DEATH STAR OR CORELLIAN CORVETTES AS CHEATS! JUST ADD THEM AS TOY BOX UNITS OR TO AIRBASES AND MAKE THEM MORE RESISTANT TO FIGHTERS AND ANTI-AIRCRAFT!

Rebels-
B-wings (Airbase)
V-wings (Airbase)
Millenium Falcon(Airbase)
Corellian Corvette (Airbase or Toy Box Unit)
Mon Calamari Star Cruiser (Airbase or Toy Box Unit)
Escort Frigate;e.g.Medical Frigate (Airbase or Toy Box Unit)

Others:
Trade Federation Battleship (Airbase or Toy Box Unit)
Republic Assualt Ship (Airbase or Toy box unit) BEFORE YOU ASK IT IS IN THE SCENARIO EDITOR BUT IT DOESN'T SHOOT OR FLY!
Queen's Ship (Airbase)
Royal Yacht (Airbase)
Royal Cruiser (Airbase)
Count dooku's ship (Airbase)

What do you guys think? I just don't like using some of those ships in the sceanrio editor. I prefer single player games.

Some of your ideas can be placed in normal maps but i should sugest that capital ships remain in space maps only.
But your ideas are good(at least from my point of view.):D

Thanks for replying! I am just trying to express my ideas on how to complete the galactic battlegrounds experience by having all of the star wars species, troopers, droids, vehicles, ships, aircraft, capital ships, and main and semi-main charcters into the game so people can at least make scenarios from them as toy box units. I know most of those won't be added into buildings to make on the single player modes, but it is worth a shot. Maybe a Lucasarts representative is reading a few of these threads and posts and getting ideas. I have always been a fan of the capital ships and I loved the space scenes in the original trilogy. That is why I concentrate on rebels and empire. I figure why not add all the units and characters from the 5 movies first before you add the expanded universe units. That way it is more realistic and you can make scenarios for each of the star wars movie.
I was disappointed charcters such as Admiral Piett(ROTJ) and Captain Piett(ESB), Admiral Ozzel, General Nadine, Captain Needa, Admiral Ackbar, Mon motha, Wedge by himself weren't added also. I am a huge fan of fleet battles with capital ships, fighters and bombers. Rebellion is just too old and I can't find it in stores any more. This is suppose to be a strategy game using air, ground and sea battles. They should add a space battle option or space battle mode. Space battles can be strategy games too.

I had the idea once that, since having capital ships built at air bases is hard to balance, that villies build them (they are fairly big). That way it is a decision between resources and power. They cost a boat load and take forever for even a handful of villies to build. Ive since dropped the idea (didnt like it for air vs. ground balance issues).

You could take all the ships, aircraft, vehicles from scenario editor that are toy box units and add them to there appriopate civilations. Add capital ships to each civilations airbase or create a second type of airbase used to make bigger ships. Increase the population to at least 350 or 400 units. Then you could add your favorite species and charcters from the 5 movies and the expanded universe. Like admiral thrawn, Prince Xizor, and any character from shadows of the empire or thrawn trilogy books.
That would be cool if they could add a few more buildings to each civilation. Maybe a 2nd trooper center that specializes in creating civilation specfic troops such as:
Empire-
Snowtroopers
Imperial Officers and Guards
Interrgator Droid
Scout Troopers and their bikes

Rebels
Rebel Hoth troopers
Rebel Endor Troopers

Maybe have republic and naboo have the ability to make artoo units.
Make the capital ships very powerful in terms of shielding, armor, durarmor, and multiple weapons and the ability to transport units (say 25-50 units per ship)

I would like to see space battle option or space battle mode.
Also I would like to add additional buildings for the star wars planets like tatonnie, geonosis, and add alderran, kamino, corellia, cloud city, and bespin to the star wars locale feature.

If Capital ships were to be added, then they shouldn't be built at the airbase. They are to large to operate in atmosphere. Capital ships should be allowed in only maps with space. Create a new building, that can only be placed in space terrain. THe Capital ships would then be like the naval ships currently in the game.

They would be able to fire on land ect.

This would also allow a navy ships in maps dominated by space.
