If i'm not mistaking, all ships have an energy reactor deep inside the ship, to supply the ship with power. I think this should be made into a hardpoint also, but one with lots of energy, and when this hardpoint is destroyed, the entire ship immediately blows up. When the reactor dies, the entire ship will explode. That's how Lando took out the DS2 in Episode VI. He destroyed the reactor, and the entire station blew up. I think this could be an interesting new thing to see in EaW.
This sound like a pretty good idea. I don't know how you would do this, but it sounds pretty cool nonetheless. --Alpha17
well instead of making the whole ship blow up, just make it so that the ship is very, very damaged. i know its possible, just balance wise you would have to make torpedos hit shields, and make that one hardpoint very strong. it is possible.
very true hawkeye but what if you destroy all the other ship systems, then what? you would have to destroy something completely unecessary and will take a long time to destroy one unit. that would be retarded. but a good idea nonetheless
Its possible to code the hardpoint itself. Im not so sure about the making the ship die/heavily damaged part after losing just one hardpoint....
swfan, i think your wrong, but i dont want to argue with a super coder. if you make the blast damage from it very high and in a small radius only affecting your team, it should blow it up, or make it have a self destruct only triggerable when that hardpoint blows up (im not sure these will work lol)

I think the blast radius thing could probably work, you just have to make it be able to effect your own ship, I think some mod team showed a video of that, so its possible..
The only thing about this is that the reactor is deep within the ship and regular attacks can't get to them. What you could do is make the hardpoint only vunerable to fighters, because they would be small enough to go into the ship or to have a great enough accuracy.
just have the ship shut down for good
The only bad part about that is that the only hardpoint people would fire on is that one and space would lose its strategy.
