I dunno, make up your own conjectures. If you're asking, however, in terms of raw numbers what makes ICC "Better at" something, I can tell you off the top of my head:

1) Shield Regeneration is much higher then armor regeneration
2) Shield Rotation compared to not being able to rotate armor
3) Ships have lower mass then their UGTO and K'luth counterparts
4) Cannons do not suffer falloff as bad as UGTO / K'luth versions do
5) ICC-Specific weapons are more energy efficient
6) Pulse Laser is ridiculously energy efficient and has an insane RoF for a beam weapon

In terms of less raw numbers and more beliefs:

1) Missile Dread is amazing (If we had more players I think Missile Dreads would put a stop to Station Spam)
2) Border Cruiser is one of _the_ best ships ever.
3) Pulse Wave is the best Faction Special (EMP Wave is horribly inefficient for Damage and Energy Usage, ELF Beam needs some tweaking IMO)
4) Shield Rotation is a ridiculously OP Mechanic on paper and I have no idea why ICC are not the most broken faction in the game being able to draw 4x as much HP to a single arc compared to other factions
5) Shield Regeneration is ridiculously high on paper (in beta, at least) and the only reason it's not brokenly OP is because you can't repair shields like you can repair armor.
6) ICC Ships look much cooler then UGTO Ships

Production = number of factories on a planet.
If there's a BOOM, multiply that by 2, if there's SMUGGLERS, divide it by 2.

Mining = amount mined per mining structure (5, 9, and 12 for tech 1, 2, and 3 respectively), multiplied by the technology excess over the structure requirement as a percentage.
If there's a MINING FIND, then multiply this by 4, if there's a STRIKE, divide it by 2.

Resource outpit is mining * production, plus 10 percent extra per level of allegiance.

Dear Fattie and Shig,

New Missle and Torp are in game for a while but the overall details of theirs technical information haven't been published here yet. Some pieces of the information can be found around the forum but it's better to reference in this specific topic.

Fattierob has splendid way to distribute overall details. Shigernafy has lively way to make complex technical information simpler. So I'm eager to hear from any of you or both!

I'll see about getting them up on the wiki at some point when I get my SVN up and running again.

Just wanted to mention i've been working on a way to get all of our numbers out without re-writing every single thing and in an easy to read format. Hopefully sometime soon (Two Weeks maybe?) it'll be released
