I'll have to do some editing due to what will fit and what will not fit into the campaign description windows. With the fighters for example, they don't show up in the Codex and only have a small window that you can't scroll through, it just cuts off the description. So, I have trim some of these descriptions to fit without losing the essence of it.

I noticed the Radar special ability isn't in the Codex. The ability that's featured on the Nebula.

How do you want me to get you a copy of this file when I'm done?

Ah yeah, that was what i was about to suggest. :)


The fighters do show up in the codex, though. however, you need to filter them out amongst the other ships. The buttons at the end of the codex are very handy indeed for this. :)

ya, not sure how I missed that. I didn't cut out much anyway.

have you considered adding some ships with that hi-tech (tri-tachyon)-ish look?

This is what I had in mind:

My first sprite, as you will see my influences are the hi-tech tri-tech.

Heh, well, we do have a set rule that no kitbashes are indeed allowed. This is mainly there to make the distinction between the two universes. Oh, and also, the TT don't exist here, but are rather portrayed nicely by the CDF and Tholian Directive. :)

Okay then, i've got about 60% of the current ships and weapons description-sorted, now for the remaining 40. :)

I've been playing this mod for a little while a I realized that the Griffon-Class Frigate is an absolute beast! I've been wiping the floor entire (read 4 rows of triangles) fleets with it and it only!
Actually, I think that the problem is more about the Spark Plug Laser. I mean, 188 sustained DPS for 31 FPS is ridiculous. I mean, yeah, you could say that the range makes it a poor choice a primary weaponry but the griffon's very high speed makes this a viable option. and if you actually add two ion cannons then it's game over for any and everything that crosses its path. The instant the shields go down, even for a second, and the targeted vessel gets shut down! after that, it's only a matter of time until I see the carcass of... well whatever I was fighting!
Anyways, I Just wanted to address that point. opinions anyone?

Hmmm this looks pretty interesting... might give it a go... The first post seems pretty old but do you guys still need "Mod testers". Dont really know anything about modding so testing might be the only thing i could do. xD

Hmm, yeah, i'll need to rebalance it a bit. Luckily, i have just enough time, so i'll dedicate some of it for rebalancing. I am most likely going to increase the flux of the pulse laser to about 100 FPS, being the light weapon it is, and it does have a short range.

Well, mod testers are quite abundant right now, sorry! Albeit we do need every player who wants to download it to download it! If you want to provide feedback, feel free to do so! We're always in the need of feedback, such as the example above. :)

I was wondering if the most recent build prone to some bud related to the purchaseable mods? I bought the Recon pack as a Tholian Directorate member, and I've not seen the "recon Mod" in my refit screen at all. I've held onto it for 3 tiers of vessels now and not seen it. Even sold it and rebought it a couple times. Still no dice.

Also, is the Caedus supposed to be so outnumbered? They struggle to field any constant force.

As for the recon packs, they're hullmods, which only enable you to equip them onto ships, meaning that they won't show up in your inventory, only will be available to be mounted on any ship, as long as you got the package.


As for the CDF, that is a bug. They're also supposed to have big fleets, but somehow, the code got jammed. Need to fix that ASAP, sorry for all of you CDF hunters out there ;)

I believe I've the alpha one installed, I notice Tholian Directive can't seem to equip the recon pack, I.E I purchase it but the mod isn't made available on a particular ship

Hmm, that would be a bug then.

What ship are you trying to equip it on? And is it that ship local, or does the recon package work with no other ships?
