It's that time again! No new ships, sadly, thanks to a drive failure that put me on an unwelcome vacation. However you can snag the tasty new treats >HERE< or in the OP.

0.9.4c - Content, minor balance. Might break saves, your heart.
- Added 2OP single Slammer torpedo.

- Added E-Vulcan (upcoming content).
- Added Whistler Jetrifle, a fast, accurate 13OP mid-range HE weapon.
- Added Jongleur ESAD SRMs, 4/10OP (sm/med) HE missiles that like to come back for a second round from behind.

- Snow Goose shield efficiency reduced to 1.0, flux cap raised to 8400.
- Chasseur Multi-ASM reload time increased from 10 to 14.

I *am* hoping to push one more update, with some new ships, before 0.8, but if I don't make it, this should have all the stuff I think is really vital in.

DME is approaching content-complete; existing content will be balanced and rebalanced as-needed, but from here on out you will probably be looking at actual New Stuff only sparingly: it'll be what I have in my design doc + necessary accommodations to new vanilla features.

Any chance of a capital for these guys? I feel like a battlecruiser, light capital, or mobile fire support platform would be appropriate for them. I know it's a cruiser centric faction, so I wouldn't be surprised if you said no. Still, late game there's something satisfying about being able to trot a carefully kitted out capital onto the field.

Are you planning to add any new weapons?
I mean there are only 9 guns, and to me it seems pretty limited.

Any hints relating to this DME heavy ship that you care to share?

Am I the only one who finds things like one small mount on a Cruiser sized vessel kind of useless? Unless they're say a 260 degree + coverage mount?

The mod has a pretty good arsenal of weaponry. I recently completed a Nexerelin campaign with these guys, using only DME ships and weapons, and didn't find it lacking in any way.

Excellent, if it's as well thought out as the cruisers it'll be an instant classic of SS capitals.

A single small fixed mount, at a odd angle? Sure. A narrow sec rear facing turret? Incredibly useful. No mount is useless.

When Will DME Update: An Uplifting Educational Mini-FAQ.

Q: It's busted!
A: I know. Working on it.

Q: When will it be not busted?
A: As soon as I have some time to sit down and implement all the required changes plus new ships plus testing. Soon but not that soon.

Q: But I want it now!
A: Would you rather have garbage now, or the good stuff a little later?

Q: When will [exciting new stuff] using [exciting new mechanics] go in?
A: The spirit is willing, the flesh is only mortal.

Now see, I was being patient, I figured the new update turned a lot of things inside out.
So I also figured it'd take like two weeks to release a .8a friendly build is not a month even.

Now you just got me hyped now that you've mentioned new stuff.

Thanks alot.

Well, you know how it goes. Stuff breaks; right now I've got it to the point where only the campaign is broken, which I'm gonna call solid progress.
