We are far from the sacred places
of our grandfathers and from the
bones of our people. But perhaps
there is one powerful being who
will embrace this good crew and
give them what they seek.
- Trader Cnut Bognar


War is the father of us all, Mother
of us all. Some it makes gods, some
it makes men, some it makes slaves,
some free.
- Asgarda Grima


To desire nothing beyond what
you have is surely happiness. Only
aboard a ship, it is frequently
possible to achieve just that.
- Stygg Ottar


MY BROTHERS. WE WERE FORGED IN VICTORY.
A VICTORY THAT ENDED THE GREAT WAR AND BROUGHT
FORTH THE REIGN OF THULE.

BORN FROM THE DEPTH OF THE CHILLING GROUNDS.
ROOTED IN THE FROZEN RIVERS OF OUR HOMELAND,
OUR CITIES EMERGED OUT OF THE CHAOS. AS THEY
GREW, SO TOO DID THE MIGHT OF OUR HIGH COMMAND.

WE CREATED A WORLD OF PROGRESS, A WORLD OF PROSPERITY.
A WORLD THAT LIVES IN THE LIGHT AND MIGHT OF OUR LEGACY.

A LEGACY THAT HAS COME TO BE THE ABSOLUTE MEASURE
OF STRENGTH AND POWER.

NOW, ON THIS DAY, THAT POWER IS TO BE TESTED.
THE HEGEMONY SEEKS TO DESTROY ALL THAT
WE HAVE WROUGHT.

WE WILL STAND TOGETHER.
WE WILL WIPE OUT THIS PLAGUE!
THULE LEGACY WILL PREVAIL!




SHIPS

DEV Version 0.1.6a


**General
+Removed custom music and backgrounds, as well as the „floating cosmonaut“. Removed custom loading bar.

**Sounds
+Added a sound for the Kometdrive.

**Shipsystems
+ Added the Kometdrive, a slightly modified version of the Burn Drive


Thule Changelog
DEV Version 0.1.6


** Weapons
+ Removed the brvulcan as placeholder, the „Light Hunker“ is now the standard PD weapon.
+ Added 2 new animated Decorative Weapons. 1. the Heimdahl Generator, 2. the Heimdahl Pulsator


**Sounds
+ The „Heimdahl Generator“ got a new terrifying sound. Deep and scary and more visual effects.
+ There's a new sound now when the system has used up all it's charges.
+ Started making custom explosion sounds for every TL weapon, for now the Barbarossa and the hunker have custom
   sounds.


**Ships
+ Modified the old Berserker sprite.
+ Added a new Heavy Destroyer „Barghest“. The Barghest is essentially a streamlined Berserker, a little more
   sophisticated then the Berserker.

**Variants
+ Added a HC Variant for the „Barghest“ class destroyer.


**Missions


**Shipsystems
+ The Oberon has a not yet balanced teleporting system. Endercore modified his original Fleet Wing Teleporter in such
   a way that the new system would teleport all deployed ships once. Removed the shipsystem for now due to not
   looking pretty enough
+ Added the „Heimdahl Generator“ to the Herzog class. It's a gravity shockwave generating device with a rather long
   chargeup, a long cooldown and max 3 uses.
+ Added the little cousin of the Heimdahl Generator, the Heimdahl Pulsator, has almost no chargeup, a significantly  
   reduced range but can be activated in quick succession for up to about 10 times. Ai doen't quite work as inteded. Will
  get fixed later
+ Thanks to LazyWizard the R.U.N.E system is now a hull modification only available to TL ships. All variants
   updated accordingly. For custom stocked TL ships it's highly recommended that every custom refitted TL ship has the
   hull mod installed.
+ For now the Viking frigates have a emp shipsystem, this will change later.

**General
+ Tweaked the stats of the 2 frigates and the 2 Destroyers again. Feedback would be appreciated.

+ Modified the Heyva Slugger, incresed DPS and Flux/second ratio, reduced range to 900
+ Added a new large Weapon, the Humbolt Cannon, supposed to be a very slow reloading shieldbreaker, with
   significant oneshot damage. (inspiration taken from Caelus mod – Raildriver )

**Sounds
+ Modified the Thule Meteor sound, the Hunker and Barbarossa sound.


**Ships
+ Removed the visible engineparts of the Berserker due to the later converstion to ringengines.


**Variants


**Missions

Wilkommen to our forums, kamerad.  Wink What an intriguing mod you've begun.

In order to avoid trouble later, please understand that no Nazi imagery of any kind is allowed on this forum. This includes items such as picures of their leaders, swastikas, "SS" lightning-bolt rune logos, and so forth. Send me a Private Message if there's something you'd like to use, but are not 100% sure about. Thanks.

The Balkenkreuz you've used as hull insignia on your ships is okay.

I like the retro styling of the stainless-steel flying saucer hulls. And the Donar-class is a strong exception to the round-hull trend; very mysterious. Everything looks very evocative of "yesterday's future," you know? Would you like to tell us what hull sizes each individual class is meant to be?

I know i'm gonna get mullered but why can they not use these symbols, especially the swastika , before the Nazis stole it it was a symbol of peace and many of old symbols are used now e.g. the roman eagle, the romans were the first dictatorship but "thats ok" I am by no means a pro nazi in fact a lot of my family died fighting them so I at least should be allowed a answer instead of the bog standard "this is not allowed because its the rules" answer.

But anyway the mod looks awesome and i will periodically look in on it, it reminds me of a steampunk/iron sky style... also why don't you look at the Das 4. Riech mod they might help you...

Same thing as always, most people are quick to jump to conclusions and if they see swastikas on Alex's forum > it must mean that Alex is a nazi. It's just bad PR.

Plus the public showing of a swastika is illegal in Germany.

Quote
As a matter of public law, the post-war German law codes prohibit the display of a swastika in any form or fashion, even if used satirically or as part of an anti-Nazi political statement.

It is just a touchy subject, best left unaddressed. Unless the topic would be a swastika debate, of course.

As for the mod. Those are some of the best kitbashes I've seen to date! I also like the dark gritty metallic appearance of the ships.

There's definitely not going to be any Nazi-centric debates on this website. You can rely upon that, gentlemen.

Thule dare to challenge IDF? Challenge Accepted. I actually always wanted somebody to make good opposite side to IDF. And we already have ISA and RSF.

Thanks for all the compliments for the ships, i tried my best Wink

As to state this clear, i WILL NOT promote Nazism or any other kind of real fascistic worldviews.
This Mod, the ship designs, the lore, in fact all of it is to be considered fictional, and fictional only. I would kindly ask anyone to avoid political discussions in this thread of any kind. Thank you kind Sirs and Ladys.

My goal is to create a faction with a grim, gritty and militaristic look and feel.
I used all inspiration i could find.
To name a few:
  • Jin Roh
  • Hell Boy
  • Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
  • Wolfenstein
  • Captain America, the first Avenger
  • German military History
  • Hardkor 44
  • Haunebu
  • IRON SKY

BTW, i made a small update in the OP
