How to Fight Against Capital Ships:
-----------------------------------
Written by intercorona

NPCs come in various forms and sizes, and some of those sizes are massive. 
Here's what to keep in mind when fighting them big buggers.

-=Introduction=-
This guide deals only with non-player capital ships. While there will be a lot of 
similarities and even completely identical mechanics, at this time, player capital 
ship mechanics are still not in place.

-=What are capital ships?=-
The big ones. Everything above a gunship class is considered a capital ship in Starpoint 
Gemini 3, which includes freighters and freightliners. Generally, cap ships are handled 
in the same manner as smaller crafts, with a few key differences / additions.

-=Weakpoints=-
Capital ships feature massive hull values (hitpoints if you wish). They are very 
resilient, and as they grow in size, so does the hull, of course. 
It's here that weakpoints come into play.

Weakpoints are actual locations on the ship and firing at them is done in the same 
way as shooting at anything else. Point and shoot. That's it. What you do get as an 
added bonus however is a hefty additional damage, especially when a weakpoint's hitpoints 
drops to zero. Destroying weakpoints is the fastest way to destroy a capital ship!

Another bonus for destroying weakpoints is that in some cases, this will trigger 
something else, a penalty for the capital ship. Knocking out a capital ship's Weapon 
systems weakpoint will temporarily disable the cap ship's turrets. Quite handy when 
you're being spammed by weapons fire. I encourage you to check out what else can happen 
when you destroy a weakpoint. The effects vary and can get quite interesting.

An important thing to mention here is that while you can definitely knock out any 
weakpoint, the crew of the capital ship will not stand idly. They will react and do 
their best to repair the structural damage and get the sub-system back to operational 
status as soon as they can. In other words, weakpoints are constantly (slowly though) 
repaired!

When you lock on a capital ship, you'll notice the weakpoints marked with red target 
indicators. If a weakpoint is currently exposed to your direct weapons fire, meaning 
if you have a clear shot at it, the name of the weakpoint will also appear. 
If the name is not visible, then the weakpoint is either partially or completely occluded.

-=Abilities=-
If weakpoints are marked as red, then what are those yellow bits? Those are abilities.
A capital ship usually has a built-in ability that gradually charges up and when it's 
full, you can bet something dangerous is going to happen. Much like weakpoints, there 
is a nice variety of abilities, so it is best to keep an eye out for the yellow indicators.

Attacking and hitting an ability point, reduces its charge-up state. This is a perfect
way to mess with the cap ship and prevent it from using its special ability. Naturally, 
you'll have to avoid weapons fire while doing so, but is should be worth it.
