Izanami is kinda strong, yo. If you eventually get to implementing Kassadar, it would be nice to make Izanami completely unique and accessible only after getting many favours enough to buy one.

All of the GH ships are amazing. I looooove them! They are extremely rare though as well. I think they're fine how they are. The Dominator GH is a brute and more my style but I love the izanami also but it requires higher levels of micro than i'm generally willing or able to do.

GH Castigator with Safety Overrides is the most ridiculous ship build I've tried yet. Two Assault Chainguns in the back mediums, one Heavy Machine Gun in the center medium hardpoint, two Overcharged Fusion Torch in the front two mediums.
Light Machine Gun in all the smalls.

Murders everything in seconds. The machine guns everywhere prevent/punish shield use, the Assault Chaingun X2 shreds through armor and hull extremely fast, and the Overcharged Fusion Torches finish off enemies with huge hull pools, like stations and battleships.

It's the combination of being able to point 5 Medium Ballistics at whatever is in front of it, while being fast and maneuverable (Good speed with SO +the perma 10% time dilation), and the time dilation gives an effective +10% DPS and flux advantage against all targets.

The ship system (Errant Drive) feels good too, allowing you to side-dash in any direction. I constantly use it to dodge Reapers or massed fire.

At the same time, I also find the Castigator (P) to be an excellent ship for AI-controlled officers: it has everything you want in an AI ship - excellent mobility system to let it backpedal and keep distance, a Large hardpoint to snipe with, two Medium ballistics for Hypervelocity Drivers (more sniping + EMP), lots of point defense on all sides, and 1500 armor. The combination of armor and mobility means you don't have to worry about it getting killed.
I like to kit them out with a Hellbore Cannon and two Hypervelocity Drivers. That lets them threaten any target from good range.

I'm a little confused by the GH content. Are they supposed to be just extra ships in markets or is there a secret system somewhere?

Currently their ships, weapons and fighters spawn in Independent fleets and markets.
Scavengers also use them.

GH content is going to be exploration thing in future (a system you have to find yourself or something)

FYI, the Prototype (ultra-rare BP mothership) doesn't construct- you just get crew, supplies, and machinery built, and progress on it loops back to 0.

Edit: For anyone who wants to fix their local copy before Nia puts out an update, the culprit was lack of an entry for it in "tahlan/data/world/factions/default_ship_roles.json"
To fix, update the carrierLarge section from:
Code
	"carrierLarge":{
"tahlan_Castella_standard":7,
"tahlan_Castella_elite":3,
"tahlan_legion_gh_knight":10,
"tahlan_Ingress_standard":10,
"tahlan_Timeless_standard":10,

to:

Code
	"carrierLarge":{
"tahlan_Castella_standard":7,
"tahlan_Castella_elite":3,
"tahlan_legion_gh_knight":10,
"tahlan_Ingress_standard":10,
"tahlan_Timeless_standard":10,
"tahlan_Timeless_retro_standard":10,

Noted for the next update. Not gonna rush this one, though, since the likelihood of someone running into this is laughably tiny

All ships dont need to be balanced...refer to several other mods here for truly imba ships.

Hello Nia.We met some problems during the process of translating your mod.We can't understand the word Kassadari.We know it must be a Japanese word,but don't know its meaning.It must be an important word,so we can't decide by ourselves.

Kassasar is the name is the home planet of the Great Houses. Their formal title being "The Great Houses of Kassadar". It's not Japanese. GH naming pulls from different languages as the houses all have different cultural origins.

You'll want to transliterate Kassadar since it's really just a made-up name.

no. They spawn the same way as before

I'm not sure if you care, but I spotted some errors in the ship descriptions. Here they are, if you want to see:

Spoiler
Bungalow, in the second sentence. It's missing "is" between "ship" and "essentially".
[close]

Spoiler
Kodai, in the second sentence. There's a superfluous "with".
[close]

Spoiler
Nessie, the word noticably is spelled wrong. Should be noticeably.
[close]

Thanks for this mod! The ships look really cool and I can't wait to try the weapons.
