Brief history of the Fringe (Lore)


The Fringe Worlds are burning in the flames of a war the Syndicate did not start. The Hegemony above all wants to have the control over more resources to build an even greater army.
Nobody knows what will be of the Syndicate, if they'll once more rise from the dust and succeed at defending their land or if they'll fall into the command of the enemy.

But that's a story for another time, nobody can tell the future, but the past is a whole other story...

A long time ago, when the Domain began exploring and colonizing the sector, they found a particular region filled with quite interesting planets. Most of them didn't need terraforming at all, and some had incredible materials and artifacts so rare they weren't found by the Domain anywhere else.
The highest ranks of the Domain quickly hid the existence of this area, using it to test new equipment and to conduct questionable research, the worst resulting in the extermination of life in the planet Sascillo. Resources were not the only thing coming from the gates, millions of "test subjects" were brought in secret to the Fringe over the years and everybody lived happily with their lives, as nobody knew experiments were being conducted on humans. The rest of the sector simply enjoyed their brand new terraformed planets...

One day, the unthinkable happened...
The gates suddenly closed, and nobody knew whether they would open ever again.
Scientists of the Domain of Man living in the Fringe had all sorts of ideas and theories, but they all had the hope the gates would reopen again, soon.
Time passed... The gates did not open again.
Despair of those waiting at the gates for a sign of the Domain caused them all to fall, all while the Fringe remained silent.

Without the Domain's watchful eye, some scientists went mad. Some ordered the armed forces under their command to annihilate entire populations for their amusement, some wandered off into the unknown with crazy schemes to find the Domain once more, and others disappeared without leaving a trace.
Many felt betrayed by the Domain and swore vengeance should the gates ever reopen again. They were the founders of the Empire, a group whose goal was the preparation to war with the Domain. To make their ultimate goal a reality, they increased their military power, designed new ships. They had blank production chips, a very valuable commodity after the Collapse, and combined them with the plentiful resources available throughout the Fringe to build a fleet capable of fulfilling this goal.
Some of the Fringe's secrets stopped being so after an accident. The population was not pleased and rebelled, trying to free themselves from the chains of the Empire, the "New Domain". It started a long war that wore both sides down, and all this time they remained oblivious to the rest of the sector...

... That is, until someone found them...

A rebel ship jumped to hyperspace in a desperate attempt to escape certain death, only to become stranded and drifting away as the ship had been severely damaged from the combat.
Eventually, the ship was found, by none other than the Hegemony. They salvaged the ship and interrogated its crew. Soon they found out about the existence of the Fringe Worlds and all the riches in it.
They quickly saw an opportunity to gather enough resources to build a military force so great it would finally allow them to take control over all of the sector.
All they had to do was get rid of the unknown remnants of the former Domain. This should be an easy task. After all, nobody knew of the existence of anything in that region, any attack could easily go unnoticed and nobody would suspect a thing.
And so it was. The Hegemony sent a massive fleet to conquer the Fringe, and they did manage to take one of their planets, devastating those who had little interest to the Hegemony.

The Empire held as best they could, but the fleets were weak and displaced by the war, they did not expect a foreign attack this soon, not by this enemy...
They had to give in to the situation and call for an emergency council with the rebels, offering them the chance to join forces in order to fend off the invaders.
The rebels reluctantly accepted but made some demands, one of them being the ceasing of all experiments being conducted in the population of the Fringe.

And so they formed the Fringe Defence Syndicate, having the single common goal of defending their land.

Cool, SW was a mod I'd always hoped to see for SS. Just one thing, I would focus on just one period. Either republic & clone wars or Galactic Empire vs Rebellion. I played many other SW mods for other games, nobody was mixing both periods for very good reasons.

Yeah, that is what I meant by setting the time location on the period that goes from the 4th to 6th episodes of the Star Wars saga (Galactic Empire vs Rebel Alliance).

However, I see no harm in including "some" ships from the clone wars like the Venator or Providence as salvaged ships from those past times, the Venator at the very least has been used after the clone wars for some time with the new Imperial colours instead of the red stripes from the Republic era.

People usually don't mix the periods when making Star Wars mods because it will cause confusion and it's weird to see the republic fighting the empire or the rebels fighting the separatists Tongue Plus, each period had it's technology and ships, so including them all would both be a pain due to the sheer number of ships to add and there would be no lore behind the mod, people usually kind of notice the lore even if they don't really care about it, if a player was piloting an Imperator class Star Destroyer while fighting early Republican Venators and knows the Star Wars story by just a bit he will know something is not right...

Oh, you should had then say "I'm setting the mod in times of the galactic empire" instead of "I'm adding 2 new factions: GE i RA" u know Wink

And of course, venators were used by early GE, so were other ships like Munificient Star Frigate which had been used by the rebel alliance even. The question is how to tastefully include them into the mod to not break the immersion but rather enhance it (for the nerds like me) by having a chance meeting with a ship from the previous era. That would be my biggest concern here. Smiley

I wanted to emphasize that this mod "adds" factions instead of replacing the existing ones like the original mod did Tongue

Yes, it's true. I am thinking about the Venator and other "outdated" ships as possible pirate boss ships or, if I want to make things more complicated, they could be "manufactured" in an old abandoned base if the player has enough crew, machinery and materials to build the ships at that location.

Another thing, and probably the only thing that bothers me as much as getting good sprites for the ships, is that all ships have a LOT of weapons. A Star Destroyer alone can have up to 100+ weapon mounts and by looking at what the previous mod creator did he actually put all those weapon mounts in the ships. I don't know if I should either do that or reduce the number to a more "logical" and balanced number. From a balance point of view having 100 turrets would require them to deal as much combined damage as a vanilla ship with only 10 weapon mounts, or they would be seriously overpowered Roll Eyes

So, I updated part of this mod to 0.8a, I'm still missing the campaign and faction code/configs so it will only load the ships into the game at the moment.
The hull mods seem to be failing to load into the ships though... Will look into that Angry

Going slow but steady.


And like I suspected, this needs some serious balancing xD

Nah, a total of 353 weapon mounts sounds reasonably balanced.

ikr Cheesy

To be honest when I checked the ships with the ship editor there didn't seem to be that many weapons, and even on the Star Wars wiki the ships did not have THAT many weapon mounts, I was really surprised when I saw over 300 weapon mounts in this one xD

Personally, i would go for more movie-accuracy than wookiepedia-accuracy - the number of weapons was limited to what made a sufficient number of pew pew lasers on the screen xD

As for balancing, don't balance it versus vanilla. Just set up some milestones on GE and RA sides and balance accordingly to them.

I'm sorry but how is that a good idea in any way? Unless it is a total conversion, you want you mod to fit the rest of the game. Otherwise the only thing you have to fight in the mod is the mod itself and everything else is just clutter and backdrop.

To be honest I don't think that SW can be balanced in to fit with vanilla without hurting the sw ships. So yeah, I rather thought that ultimate goal would be to create a total conversion in the end. But there's no point in striving to that without having the faction's done & balanced first right?

Well, in all Star Wars movies the space battles look a lot more like the vanilla Starsector battles in terms of weapons available on the ships than they do on any wiki. In the original triology there are less weapons in a Star Destroyer than there are in a normal destroyer in vanilla Starsector Tongue

As for balancing, don't balance it versus vanilla. Just set up some milestones on GE and RA sides and balance accordingly to them.
What do you mean? I will balance GE vs RA first and then I'll deal with the vanilla factions? It's not just the vanilla factions I would fight against, any mod that adds a faction would be underpowered when compared to the average cruiser available in this mod. A Star Destroyer could wipe an entire faction from the map and would leave the campaign without a single hull point lost.

The only way the ships could have all the weapon mounts they should have according to the wiki's ship info would be to first: make all weapons built-in like they are right now and second: make this a total conversion mod and wipe all the vanilla factions, they would be wiped anyways if they remain in the map xD But that was not really the direction I wanted to take Undecided

This is an issue that will either cripple this mod or cripple all other faction mods unless I make this a total conversion mod.

Do as you wish (I'm fine with either more movie vs wookipedia or canon vs legends approach [tho u are already taking from legends with the Alliegance-class haha]) honestly. As for what I mean, do you plan to include it the mod as new factions to vanilla or ultimately as total conversion - a lot of things will be hard to balance if not possible. By balancing ships only within the mod (so aiming for total conversion) you'll make it easier on yourself in many categories. Size-wise first (no need to scale ships down for vanila, so you can decide on how big imperial star destroyer will be and scale everything around it), then power wise as you'll have more freedom with how many weapon mounts to include on ships (nobody's asking for a perfect representation with every turbolaser accounted for i think?) down to how powerful each weapon should be.

That's what I meant, I hope it clarifies it?

This is an issue that will either cripple this mod or cripple all other faction mods unless I make this a total conversion mod.

I'm glad you also see & think like this then (:

Given the AI issues with large sprites, even a TC would require keeping the ships roughly in line with vanilla. Same with the weapon mounts for performance reasons.
