Should we make a campaign demo now so that people may get an taste for what's coming? :D

EDIT: If we are, i'll need a second scripter with me, so that i'm not forever alone ;D
Meh, I'll try.  Gimmi a few planets and the layout, and I'll give it a shot. ;D
We'll need to find out fleet composition next.

Try with TheMessiah, he's our offical planet maker! :D

Also, we need to have a way of quick contact. Have skype? :)

(Since we're going for heavier stuff now, you know ;))

Just lemme post his review here :)


Well, I've looked at the mod and fiddled with the weapons and ships for a half an hour or so.  So, first impressions.

From what I've seen, the ships look mostly fine.  But the weapons are absolutely batshit insane.  I don't know where to start, these things are ridiculous.  I could go on for hours, but from what I've seen the only ones that are fine at all are the heavy ballistic ones, which I didn't test very much.  The strike chaingun is ridiculous, the metal storm is bonkers, the other weapons are far too efficient... the Thunder MIRVs are just all around Too Good, even though it's an appealing concept.

By the way, have you tried making use of keptin's Balance Suite thing?  It's certainly done a great deal of good for Uomoz's mod, but I'm not sure it has a function for weapons (though it ought to.)

I was also disappointed at the lack of campaign integration, as I'm far more interested in campaign stuff than missions (since it's your own fleet that you build up and have experiences with.)

The ships are kinda uninteresting to me, but that's just me.  I like the Warhawk ones though.

Sorry that my feedback isn't as shimmering as it was with other mods.  I'd like you to keep in mind that this mostly comes up to personal taste (except for the weapon balances.)  Comprehensive balance feedback is much easier to do in the context of a campaign as well, since you're making choices on what to put in your fleet, and so it's much more natural to pick apart what's good at what and how.  I'll be playing around with the mod more, and I'll give a more thorough analysis on the ships and experiences in the missions.




thank you ^ ^
i made the warhawk ships :D

i guess after this feedback we should make some more ships that resemble to the vanilla ships.
the warhawks/independed ships look a lot more like the standart ships than the others.
i also kinda agree with him ,although this is stricktly my opinion.
the other ships are nice and all( they look really good and detailed) but i dont really like the art-style :/
but as i allready said this is purely my opinion.

I CAN'T DO THIS MAP ANYMORE!!!
 :-\
This is killing me.  WAYY too much work for just me to do, and that's just the map of the sector, not even getting into the fleets.  I'm sorry, but my mind just can't handle the epicness of the system.  I can still do weapons, thankfully.

I want to but currently I'm experiencing glitches due to my own updates so I can't right now.

I have looked throe the files and have to say that I'm underwhelmed in terms of ship count, I had expected more of them.

There are also ships that look rather fuzzy, I had not expected such ships to be included, unless those are just placeholders.

Ships that look fuzzy are not to be integrated. Those are just remains from pre-release and i forgot to remove them, that's all ;D
