Your ship’s officers are a critical part of Novus Aeterno; all officers are able to level up and progress by accomplishing various tasks. Changing and interaction with your officers will allow you to create your own fleet that will fit your needs and your vision for a personalized force of space fleets.
The hull class of each ship determines the amount of officer slots allocated to it. These slots can be filled with officers specialized in either weapons, engineering, navigation, communication, etc. Each officer brings improved skill to their assigned ships in their specialized fields. These increases can be anything from increased sensor visibility to faster hull repairs.
As the game progresses further your officers will level up and gain new skills and attributes to further improve certain aspects of the ships they are assigned to. The task an officers accomplishes will determine which skill will level up allowing officers to specialize in specific roles.
Officers are not bound to one ship and can be moved from one ship to another as the situations around the player changes. This will allow the player to take full advantage of their knowledge. Officers of the same specialization can even be “stacked” into the same ship.
If a player builds an academy on one of his or her owned planets, the officers can be sent there for training to further increase their skills.
The pinnacle of any officers career is to one day be assigned to your capital ship. Officer assigned to your capital ship will receive bonuses on top of the buff they normally would offer.
We will be adding more information about this Stretch Goal as we move towards it.
