Would you consider making your mod Exerelin compatible? I'd love to see it plugged in to the stuff they're got going on.
I have done a release with Exerelin compatibility will need some play testing

Uthilian, I'm happy to help out if you want Smiley

You'll want to define your exerelin<type>Fleet's like the vanilla faction ones in the latest version of Exerelin. You will need only these fleets:
 - exerelinGenericFleet (full list of all variants you want available. This dictates AI fleet composition, ships available for sale and weapons lists. Set all to 0 minimum.)
 - exerelinInSystemSupplyConvoy (three freighter-equivalents)
 - exerelinInSystemStationAttackFleet (a valid superfreighter and valid troop transport or equivalent)
 - exerelinAsteroidMiningFleet (at least one mining drone wing and at least one other ship, preferably freighter)
 - exerelinGasMiningFleet (at least one mining drone wing and at least one other ship, preferably fuel transport)
 - exerelinEliteFleet (any unbalanced ships not for sale but still possible to spawn in AI fleets, or if none then just the most powerful ship/variant in faction)

Valid ships for superfreighter, troop transport and mining drones are stored in arrays at the top of data/scripts/world/ExerelinData.java. These dictate whether a specific fleet composition can perform the role of boarding or mining. If you have your own versions of these then we'll need to add them to those arrays so they count as valid ships.

We'll also need to add the following to ExerelinData.java - addModdedFactionsToList method:
Code:
        // Test for Hawken Fleet
        if(isFactionInstalled("hawkenfleet", "data.scripts.world.HawkenModPlugin"))
            possibleFactionList.add("hawkenfleet");

        // Test for Orthin Expansion
        if(isFactionInstalled("Orthin", "data.scripts.world.HawkenModPlugin"))
            possibleFactionList.add("Orthin");

(I really should write that down somewhere obvious so sorry for that)

Anyway feel free to PM me with any questions etc. Smiley

Thanks for colourful and interesting mod. I want to suggest to make instead of two different home systems one to a flock the conflict of two warring of fractions will develop. It will make system more interesting and eventful on the one hand, and with another will lower load of game a little. And that when you put many mods at once there is an unpleasant situation when and it is impossible to play with all of them technically, and to disconnect any of these remarkable mods it is a pity. And on me the look is much more interesting when in new system it is possible and will be bought from new allies and to do some fighting with the new opponent. You feel the participant of the conflict. Instead of that you arrive in system, and there only the station and fleet of allies reels up circles. And to go a campaign on completely hostile system to late stages of game not so it turns out. When in system some fractions it is much more interesting, always to eat than be engaged. Such as in original Corvus.
From the ships Blade-Class Shuttle especially was pleasant, it is my favourite transport. Smiley I suggest to add tugs for each fraction and any fast ship of the destroyer size capable to catch up opponent. Once again thanks for mod. I apologize for curve language it is machine translation.

It is added later: Possibly it and not a bug, but and reflected. I found here that Orinth are initially neutral to the player though apparently reflected as hostile. 
Also I found as it to correct:it is necessary to change in the OrthinSectorGen file one letter in the line

 Orthin.setRelationship ("Player",-2);     
 
there has to be

 Orthin.setRelationship ("player",-2);

and then the attitude towards the player works normally. Probably to someone it will be useful.

Actually, the mod is very NOT Exerelin compatible.  I have spent several hours just to get them working with Exerelin.

Issues found (so far....):
- Sprite sizes are massive, Id suggest 50% or 66% reduction
- Sound files are missing correct references, or just plain not there
- The wings, and variants are incorrectly named/referenced in the wings.csv, causing load-up failures and crashes, as well as 'single' unrefittable ships instead of full wings
- Hit boxes for many ships dont work, one ship (i think its the light carrier) cant even be hit in battle (when I finally fixed the previous issues)
- Wings clump together in-battle, but that may be due to my in-experience with modding

I have made them playable in Exerelin, but its far from fixed at this stage, Im going to try re-sizing, and hopefully that will remove the last two issues.

Since i Am a Minor critic, I will pick out the major flaws with this
Redo the names for most, you have put the text in the wrong place alongside with descriptions
Redo Hawkens Carrier, It is horrible to play with and fight because the solid lines only are around one place and you can shoot straight through the hull without doing anything
Make the home stars more full instead of them being empty (No units)
PLEASE LOWER THE UNITS OF HAWKEN AND OTHER IN CORVUS
I believe those are all the majors that need to be delt with so far
Sorry if I have told already delt with problems

I'm not sure if you're aware of how amazing the ravenger cannons are. I generally don't like burst weapons, but they fire rapidly enough to make up for it, and in pairs, and especially quadruple front mounted, they WRECK shields. They're particlarily well paired with big damage HE weapons of similar range - I don't tend to use the weapons that come with this faction, though. The sprites seem less well done, for some reason.
