Description:

Adds the Corellian Engineering Corporations YT series Light Freighters from the Star Wars universe to the game.

That's three hulls (plus variations), a radar dish, and a quad laser turret and a dual laser turret.

Pirates may also spawn in these hulls.

With Expanded NPCs, this mod will also have traders & patrols spawn in these hulls

Detailed Description:

This mod adds the following things to the game:

The YT-1300 hull

Most famous example: Millenium Falcon

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 1 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: 2000
Armor Value: 2
Cargo Capacity: 400
Maneuverability: -20%

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), and a pirate paint job.

The YT-2000 hull

Most famous example: Otana - Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance

The YT-2000 is a heavier duty freighter, with a slightly lower cargo capacity.
It's a more armoured ship, with two 360 degree tier 2 energy turrets, and a slow moving energy slot intended for the radar attachment (see below).
Consider it the fighting man's light freighter.

Stats:
Structure Value: 3500
Armor Value: 15
Cargo Capacity: 300
Maneuverability: -20%

There is an "Otana" variant with beefed stats and additional slots, as well as a couple of colour variants.

The YT-2400 hull

Most famous example: Outrider - Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

The YT-2400 is a smaller and lighter freighter, with a slightly lower cargo capacity.
It's a cheaper and more accesable hull, but also has two 360 degree tier 2 energy turrets, and a slow moving energy slot intended for the radar attachment (see below).

Stats:
Structure Value: 1300
Armor Value: 0
Cargo Capacity: 300

There is an "Outrider" variant with beefed stats and a missile slots.

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

1D Servo - Dual Laser Turret (Energy Tier 1)

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

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

An enhanced version of the 1D servo, also fires Star Wars style energy bolts.
