I believe he means the independent ships should not be as similar.

They should be quite different in appearance because they're NOT one group.  They're different from a normal fleet because they're independent.

That means they should have varied appearances because the ships would come from different places and thus not have a unified appearance.

I'm guessing he's thinking more of a Mercenary type force that recruits random ships into service instead of one faction of ships built in one vein.

The independent ships will be which the warhawks use, since....


I'm still not Sure on this point, it'd require a lot of work to it, but I guess....

I'm still uncertain :/

well at this point there is one station of independent engineers and merchants that have specialized into designing ships for independent use.
the independent buy these ships cause they are universal and mend for smaller fleets and because the independent do not want to have faction build  ships to maintain there independancy (<- maybe not a real word)

Perhaps there should be a Mercenary group then, that hodgepodges ships from every faction? 

Maybe they acquired ships through piracy, salvage, or trade?

How about HappyFace's on account of them actually being intended for you to use?

Indeed. Right, it seems it's a 2v1 situation, so i'll just go ahead and make them for the independents.

Mind you, I'll NOT change the IDs, but just change the faction belongings ;)

Which ships are HappyFace's?

Well, I guess I could just say "Not Davidoff's" because I really like those pizza slices of doom and want to see an entire faction rolling around with fleets of them.

Is there anything that needs making so I can work with it this weekend when I have no internet? Maybe more planets?
Edit: Not sure of how much time I will have to do it.

How come you won't have any interweb this weekend? (yeah, i know it's spelled internet, but not in the CAELUS universe ;D)
Well, if you want work, you could always come up with some awesomely epic planet sprites and post them here :)

Also, could you make a prototype low-tech ship so that TheHappyface has something to work on for the new Ferrus ships? :D
