Alright. I'm not super familiar with Nexerelin, so is there a chance they'll build a heavy industry at some point on their own?
Not very familiar with random sector tbh, but i do know nex allows ai to build industry's so i think when they have room, either through taking/making colonies or when the ones they own grow they might build one.

Ah I see, I'm using randomly-generated core worlds, is that the problem?
that could very well be it, that has the 3rd possibility of them not spawning with a heavy industry

Hi gang,

I've been playing a Nexerelin run as Anvil Industries. I've noticed that none of Anvil's fleets contain Anvil ship designs. Anvil ships are available to purchase in the markets of other factions, but our markets only have low-tech ships. Is this normal? I know that factions will use low-tech ships with D-mods if they're in a bad economic situation, but I'm surprised that not a single Anvil ship has shown up in Anvil territory so far.

Idk who the "gang" is, but things that generally cause that problem are the omni forge being disrupted and being unable to produce ships or crucible itself was invaded forcing them to import

I realize this is a giant dump of feedback, but its somewhat based on testing experiences trying to find a fleet that will work for the tournament.  These of course are my own opinions, and it wouldn't surprise me if others point out problems with my suggestions.

i read through your suggestions and made some changes based on them, but not 1 for 1 obviously.

as for the cudgel and axe, well the cudgels something i keep forgetting to remove, was supposed to go last update but well, forgot, its a bad ship that i dont feel deserves fixed as a phase ship doesnt really fit anvil much, and the axe is one of the next ships to get a complete overhual with new sprite to hopefully make it more of a viable ship.

new update changes

Just wanted to say thanks for the update again.

For reference for your patch notes, in 1.3.3, you decreased Lucerne base armor from 2300 to 2100, not 2200.  Before, it used to be 2300+230 (armored mounts) = 2530.  Now it is 2100+210=2310.

I admit, I'm kinda sad to see you can't get over 3000 armor value anymore with heavy armor.  Although to be fair, I'm not really sure what is a reasonable armor value given it is a rather unique ship and costs 65 DP to deploy.  Capitals without shields aren't likely to find a place in a player fleet late game given the types of outnumbered battles you sometimes have to take part in.  Certainly <Redacted> would have a field day against this type of ship.  I admit I don't know what place in the game you intended this for.  It does make for quite an interesting NPC opponent.

I've also been playing around with the Kingdom and Silkworm bombers, and can't help but notice they tend to finish they're bombing runs right in front of the target, or sometimes even over it.  It feels like they are having far more bomber losses when compared to Daggers for example.  Unfortunately, I think it might be due to their speed being 25% higher than, say, Dagger bombers.  I don't know how much the shorter weapon range (silkworm starburst)  and attack run range of 1000 matters compared to atropos (single) range of 1200, attack run setting of 2000 for the Dagger.  I vaguely remember its hard to modify the attack run behavior of fighters though.

yeah idk how i keep messing that up lol, my bad, hopefully everythings accurate now

honestly i made the lucerne when i wasnt quite satisfied with the bulk of an onslaught, im an aggressive player who likes being on the front lines and the onslaughts shields felt like a waste but without them it could only tank so many missiles, i wanted something thats just raw power and armor focus that i could personally fly late game. ai handles it well enough so i released it into the world.

ill have a look into that down the line, felt alright for me but ill doublecheck, fighter attack run behavior is indeed a lil tricky.

P.S: I actually feel embarassed asking this: are relic Ships like the karma and the Nirvana from this mod?

Yes they are.

Hello! I think Blast Gun needs another look into. For it's OP strikes me as an underperformer. Prior to it's change of stats and sprites it's been probably too strong option for 90x3*200% against armor, but now it's damage instead of burst turned into the tunneled flow of damage. Though my point of view is as subjective. Otherwise thanks for mod, always a part of my playthroughs from time you've shamelessly recommended it to some rookies on the discord. :^)

thanks!ill be sure to give it a look!

The needle PD laser is an absolute joke. A 4 second reload? 6 OP? And not particularly flux efficient for a frag laser either.
Heh ill have a few goes with it and look into a buff

But HMI debloat version haven't release yet.

It has in a beta stage on the discord

Vayra was last seen on this forum on March 13th, so I must say it's highly unlikely he will show up. Unless next starsector version comes around, I bet.
Shes taking a break from.modding to deal woth life stuff, will probably be back eventually

Great mod! (including the exalted)
Despite being more simple, the opposing ideological factions of industry, syndicalism, or tech cult (exalted) does add flavor as oppositions towards the counterpart in goals despite being more or less corporations. Along that, it doesn't diverge too far from being abnormal in comparison to other factions making this quite vanilla / lore friendly.

I do have a question though,
Why is the main Anvil Industry Headquarter (Haven) distant, in comparison, to the core worlds? (You would expect a industry center to be closer to the major populations.)

2 reasons!
1: lore wise its because they didnt want to set up shop on some barren world just because it was close, as they expanded they needed somewhere to call home for the longhaul, the haven system provided just that.
2: modding wise the area i wanted them to be near was quite crowded by other mods, so i decided  to make it a more distant system to avoid it being smothered.
