CAELUS UNIVERSE MOD


A mod of epic proportions! By the end of this project, it will include over 300 new ships, at least 10 new factions, and a countless number of new weapons!

Included:

  • Take control of a Sidus Dim Strike Force attacking an Independent Convoy, or take them down with the Caelus Defense Force.
  • Helm a Ferrian, Sidus Dim, Caelus Defense Force, and countless other faction's ships, and outfit them with new weapons!
  • Countless new weapons, from the Odin Guided Munitions Launcher to the Tesla Destroyer, just to name a few.
  • New Music!

Now offically on steam! Come join us there for direct chat with the devs, images, more in-depth patch notes and much more! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/Caelus

We also have a offical IRC channel now! You can find it here: http://webchat.freenode.net/?uio=d4

You need some "lead" for this project. A *strong* lead. (NOT proposing myself)

I tell you by personal experience, flawlessly incorporate a lot of stuff in a single mod is hard. It gets harder and harder as you grow up. Ask Omega, I don't envy his situation :D (and I say this knowing he is a better scripter then me by a long shot).

The *lead* is me so far.  But again, craftomega is trying to incorporate several *different* mods whilst what I am trying to do here is build a complete mod from scratch.

I am no coder, but I can provide A LOT of backstories, backgrounds, ideas for weapons, factions, races, ships, etc.

So I would be interested in providing those, if this gets off the ground.

Good luck!!!

Oh, i see. You thought that i was trying to incorporate several mods like craftomega? Not exactly that easy ;)

Any chance you would sign up as a coder? (By coder I mean: make balanced hulls and variants) we need every man we can get :D

I'm available to proof the descriptions. Or if you're comfortable with it, I can write some as well. You can just send me either the descriptions or a few points on what you want me to write into them.

Well, for a start, we don't even have some solid ground to start on :D
But I'll ask you when I need descriptions ;)

I CALL THE WEAPONS MAKING!!!
I seriously do love doing that.  But anyways, I can balance ships pretty well, or the BalanceSuit will do it for us. ;D

Like I asked earlier, I can work on some of the core factions, etc. I already have an idea for the main "pirate" kind of faction in the system.

Gotta start somewhere, right?

Seems like this will be a good idea after all :D
@D0vahkiin tell me more about the core faction. I'd love to see the pirates :D

@TheSoldier. Yeah, you're free hands on weapons making. Just make Sure they'll look nice and be pretty balanced not op. Though don't balance them too much towards vanilla. This will be a huge mod ;)
