I was bored this last weekend and haven't modded anything for over a month so decided to play with spreadsheets. The result is this mod which really is a capital ship diversification mod with mini-starbases (fortress class) as capital ships. It will quickly be retired but it was fun to make and it's main goal was to get me back into modding.

You will need to stack the (D) version over the (E) to run in diplomacy
The net result is this.
New Fortress Class (Mesh is a reduced scale version of the StarBase)
Vera Fortress - Tech

Marrasek Fortress - Vasari
The fortress class capital ships do not have planet bombardment capabilities.
Weapon damage is reduced by half from starbase equivalent
Abilities are based on starbase equivalent
Target counts per bank is currently limited to 1
Now start at second level health stats
