Wow, just came across a certain bit of content in this that blew me away. Had to look it up when I came across it, and was surprised when I couldn't find anything -- turns out it's a part of a mod, and not the core game! The sprite art and overall quality of the whole thing had me fooled.

I'm in love with the Daemon as well, those things are great for hunting down fleeing AI. Very satisfying to finally see those pesky frigates not make their getaway with 5 hull remaining.

One thing I have noticed, and I'm not sure if this is just due to my fleet composition... The Tremor and Vanquish were really squishy, especially the former. I had them under AI control, but was having a lot of trouble keeping them alive. The Vanquish fared a bit better than the Tremor, but it still felt a bit fragile for its size. I also second the notion of the mines being a bit too pricey for what they do, looking forward to seeing how the changes there will play out.

Thanks for making this.

I have used Vanquish for a while as my flagship in my last campaign and it felt almost indestructible.
I used PD weapons heavily in small slots and shield only for heavy non missile shots (or there were too many torpedos at once).Tried to stick to low tech weapons so they do not use too much flux and it works just fine.
I will post screenshot  when i will the game later, but overall Vanquish is great.

What fleets even use the Vanquish? I have this mod installed but the Hegemony still only uses Legions and Onslaughts, but I have not seen a single Vanquish anywhere.

I'm not too sure where I got mine, lost it a few days ago. I'm keeping an eye out for more, though -- from reading the comment on low flux usage I'm wondering if I just over-armed it, now.

Quick hotfix to fix a crash-to-desktop that snuck through testing. Should be save-compatible with 1.5.2.

Is there a download of the 0.8.1 version available? I picked through the forums but couldn't find it. I'd really appreciate one for playing with older mods.

[EDIT] Disregard that, I'm blind and its on page 17.

Two things about 9th which i am not sure if it is a feature or a bug:
1st - all of their systems are fully explored from the beginning of the game so you can actually find their systems on the map immediately.
2nd - their fleets do not attack me in their system at all. I have set up a colony in their systems and it seems they just ignoring me, but when my battle station is up they go for it right away.

At the moment Ninth Battlegroup fleets only attack transponder-on players. In the future this will be changed as I make them slightly closer to a regular faction.

I have had a few games where it seems "promise" did not generate, also looked through Hybrasil for a certain ship but unless it can spawn in the outer reaches it wasn't there.

Was reworked in 1.5.2. Check the bar every once in a while, you'll dig something up eventually.

hi,

just wanted to bring to your attention that the Persean League seems bugged.

when i fight them in the middle of empty space, sometimes they get a starbase with them.
is it a bug or do they have "mobile" starbases?

either way its really hard to fight them early game when they have a base on there side.

here is a sc https://i.imgur.com/nazEj6F.jpg
its hard to see but its empty space

hope this helps

I'm fairly certain this is a vanilla bug that's been fixed for 0.9.1.
