  1. My main ask for the campaign is historical template ships for the enemy and yourself, with the option of course of modifying your own templates. I love the ship customization in this game and I know the devs are working hard on the AI ship builder but honestly 90% of the cruisers and battleships look utterly ridiculous and would be an immersion breaker for me.
  2. It's an issue with any game engine, that's why many games rather than use an actual particle system use a 2d scrolling image to imitate particles in storms and such. Probably the most noticeable example of this is in Minecraft where while raining if you look up there's a box around you where no rain comes down. Older FPS games often use a series of 2d textures stacked on top of eachother for smoke grenade clouds and such. Particles are just a ton of work on any GPU.

You may want to explore a gaming laptop or a desktop with a graphics card. As for recommendations based on a budget I would suggest you head over to a computer tech forum.
  5. The biggest problem with later year secondaries is that more and more of them are placed into fully enclosed turrets and become very large and results in smaller caliber secondaries being selected. Otherwise I think people are expecting them to do much more than they were intended. Secondary guns are only really there to allow the capital ship to engage screening ships at the same time that they are firing their main guns at another capital ship, at best your secondaries are worth a light cruiser or maybe a heavy cruiser on a super battleship. Throwing those extra batteries on the side of
