I think now that Alex nerfed Atropos and Sabot the Shrike is starting to feel like a way too good of a deal. Huge range, huge speed, tracking, EMP,kinetic damage and you get 3 shots for only 5 OP.

I guess the actual damage and missile HP are not high so I might not be right on this.

Also just as a heads up, this will break saves.

The pirate themed ships are great, and a good addition to normal pirate fleets. Makes me want to see more pirate versions of modded ships.

Skadi is possibly the prettiest ship in all of existence.

*Drooling slightly*

I want that Skadi blown-up with a sweet background as a wallpaper. Now.  ;D

"What is good about SRA?"
"Well, Skadi is a big plus"
Jokes aside, it looks a bit like asari ships, but, like... Better. I also like that new paintjob blends a bit better with vanilla Starsector, and that it's scheme makes phase cruiser (I can't remember names of any ships from mods...) look like it's flying backwards. Space Archer, anyone?

Fixed it for myself, simply opened the ShipCSV in the same folder as the morningstarCiv (Data/Hulls ) and added the morningstar with the same stats as the two above ones, started just fine after that.

Personally Shadowyards became a lot more attractive as a mod now. I like the new colors better, plus a persean leauge refit instead of civil one is a really nice change. Now the "non shadowyards military" versions are actually valid and interesting choices.

It's especially true on Seski (I always loved Seski and Robberfly from BR)!

In short I like the changes - good job!

i have the same problem with the crash.

have tried deleting the mod and doing a new install. this allowed the game to start. but if i try to load a save using the mod it wont load instead telling me it relies on data from a mod not in use.

ultimately had to go back to the old version of the mod to continue my game.

Aheh, yeah this break saves, sorry; Starsectors save system remembers hull ids and the like; some significant changes to the internal file structure of the mod occurred, and so your save will fail to find parts of the save and give you a crash.

E:  And glad people seem to really like the updated look.  Woo!  Thanks all!

am i missing some special effect of the Polarizer weapon series? because they seem waaay underpowered compared to the vanilla Ion Weapons.

the small Polarizer does only twice as much EMP damage per shot as the Ion Cannon -- but Polarizer fires only 7.2 times per minute, while IC fires 120 times per minute, giving the latter over 15 times the EMP dps. and as if that wasn't enough for a weapon meant primarily to do EMP damage, Polarizer also requires twice the flux per sec, and doesn't have a real energy damage advantage either (6 times as much energy damage per shot, but only a third of the overall energy dps).

the only advantage of the Polarizer i can see is that is has 600 range compared to IC's 500, but that hardly seems worth such a massive discrepancy in effectiveness.

The polarizers have an on hit effect which spawns secondary EMP strikes, 2 for the smaller and 6 for the larger, delivering 15% of the base EMP damage each strike (and an additional 20% of the base damage).  That being said, I'll take a look at their stats; they haven't been updated in a while, and it should probably be doing considerably more than twice as much emp damage per shot.

okay. :]

another piece of balance feedback: i think Raksashas are too strong with their 2 Tusks, compared to Tridents with 2 of the much less damaging Atropos. 1 Tusk per fighter would probably be enough, or giving them a fighter-specific version that doesn't spawn as many warheads per torpedo.

Hmmm, I'll give it a looksee.  It is probably a little too close to the Trident right now anyway.

I think that's more the tridents and daggers being a bit underwhelming, 28OP seems alright for the Rakshasas considering they have to be fairly close to their target to deploy their torpedoes, giving them a fairly long round-trip time to rearm and re-attack compared to their atropos weilding vanilla friends and 10OP anni swarm Kopeshes.
