He lives in Sweden, so he is sleeping. I do agree, this does need more organization. I would like to team up with someone who can code and I will create ideas and sprites (maybe not as many or as good as SOMEONE *cough medikohl cough*), if they will code and criticize my ideas and sprites.

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.

Same here, if you need anyone else to proofread or write.

Yes, we need organization.

We need a main thread, a factions and lore thread with system design included, and a ships and weapons thread, for all submissions.

Holy CRAP, isint this popular. I've just slept for about 8 hours and we already have three new pages.

Guys, what we currently need is some sort of lowtech faction ships (going to be atleast two factions that are lowtech) three Midline factions, and two hightech factions.

We currently need any and all spriters possible, ao any contribution is welcomed, even a slow contribution, like yours, mendonca :)

Also, thecornerbro, those sprites will be looking good for a hightech faction I've had in mind ;)

Oh, and glad you're tempted, medikohl. Care to join? We will be needing a lot of sprites :)

ORGANIZATION! we need it. Lead on leader. I'm all for multiple threads to handle the huge amounts of submission we will be getting. I guess this one can remain a discussion thread but I don't think anyone wants to scroll through all of these pages.

Take a look at the corvette I made, and tell me if it's decent enough. I only just started spriting recently, so if it will do, I can work on some of the low tech Pirate ships, mostly fighters, frigates and small cargo ships.

Right, I'll get to work on a few threads.

I liked that Corvette. Gives me a sense of speed while at the same time remaining pirate-y. That would suit the pirate lowtech faction.

Aye, it's supposed to look like it was welded together from 4 different ships, just crude metal plates welded on the front and sides, salvaged from completely burnt wrecks.

Here is what I think should happen for an organization scheme:

Step 1: Separate Factions

Each faction needs to have its own thread with the name being as follows Faction Name-Caelus Project.

Step 2: Create Submission Rules

We need to end the jacka** spriters who make everyone feel miserable about themselves by throwing their super awesome ships around randomly.

So at the top of each Faction thread, this needs to be posted.

Submission posts always start with Submission in bold followed by the date.

Next line is Submission name.

Following lines are submission descriptions.

Final line is link to download of submission which is zipped or rar'ed and the file is labeled FactionName_SubmissionName_Username

Step 3: Establish Request Rules

A new thread is made for requests for ASSISTANCE in making new submissions ONLY. No requests for new content or re-balancing.

Step 4: Establish Idea Thread

This thread is for suggestions and ideas only. Not for complaints or bugfixes.

Step 5: Lore Thread

This thread is for both submissions of lore and for requests for creating or proofreading lore.

Step 6: Establish Balancing and Bugs Thread

This thread is for requesting rebalancing of ships or reporting problems while using the mod.


Its a bit large and audacious, but I really think that some serious organization is needed for this project.

We can't let each faction have their own thread, if we do, there will be too many threads(6+ for the factions alone).

Rest of the guidelines sound good, though.
