Most pirate fleets are designed to be weak, with only a destroyer and that cutter, usually. On random occasions, an huge pirate fleet spawns alongside with a cruiser aswell, but the general idea is that once you get a large enough fleet, you're suppose to hint either CDF or warhawk fleets, and then move up to Sidus Dim. :D

I did think that, but there should be more of a progression to that stage in my opinion, i currently have a destroyer and 3 really deadly frigates.(Btw, Awesome lockdown emp!, Makes for a great broadside weapon and then follow up with missile frigats, which i do) But i still cant seem to take on their huge ass fleets :P

Well, they aren't exactly supposed to be taken down in the early game. :D

Also, are the ships more fairly priced now? :D

Well I can nearly afford a War hawks frigate after about 5 battles.. So the prices are getting there.. It's only really a problem in the early game.

As far as suitable themed music for the campaign stuff I was thinking something a long the lines of what Endless Space has.

Oh and I can't wait till the Tholians get integrated because then the mod will probably best looking ships of any TC. No offence to other mods but I really love some of the designs in this TC so far.

The TD really reminds me of a mercenary faction.  Not really like the independents, but more...mercenary.  Never trust a merc.  You might find one or two of their ships in any other fleet, so it give you that feeling they're everywhere, and you should never trust them.  One time they might be with an ally, another with the enemy.

Well, let's just say they'll truly live up to their "Technocracy" name ;)

Also, yeah, i'll try to hunt for such music, but it's damn difficult when you don't have a own music artist :)

Heh, if I had a decent set of programs... and a bit more talent I'd happily compose music for free.

In fact I quite liked the music done for the source mod NeoTokyo a few years ago. But that was done by a professional composer and was weirdly never used in the game..

Well, you could try Logic Pro 8, i've heard it's a good program with alot of good stuff in it :D

I believe the learning curve was quite steep unless you've gotten hang of it already :D

EDIT: Seems to be apple only, crikey. Hang on while i'll try and find for something hopefully cross-platform or atleast for windows :D

EDIT2: This one seems to be good for windows:  http://magix-music-maker.en.softonic.com/

It's 469 60 dollars though. I *could* find you a free copy, but i wouldn't post it here, though. I'd keep it to PM, but just tell me if you need one :D

Aye the software ain't exactly cheap and I doubt I could make good use of it really. Might be worth giving it a shot I guess.

Sure, give me a couple days to get to grips with it and I'll see what I can do. Better to find out than never know right?

Well, I decided to rebalance the pirate ships and removed all shields, because they could easily take down a high tech destroyer with shields, which was quite OP, but now they feel more like they should. :D

Also, the Tholian Directive is the next faction on the list to enter the fray, they'll have a small planet, isolated from the other planets, but they'll mostly have trading fleets :D
can the independed fleets be added?
now the only independed ships added to the demo is the ship you get at the start :P
and I kinda still want a independed station (the bar where they hang out and) where the independeds buy there ships.

I'm adding in the independent station now and just had a thought - should I merge that with the neutral faction I already made? After talking with Upgradecap it seems like they will use the same ships and have the same relationships... I was going to put the station around Divari B. What do people think?

Well, sure. That'll leave us with less factions, and we didn't have any lore at all made for the Neutrals. :D

Also, can you fix the selling issue at the abandoned station? :D


Also, again, i'll send you my CAELUS folder so you can continue working on it from there, i made some fixes in it :D
