Foxer,

I have to say I love the mod! It is really fun for Exerelin so TY for the time you have put in. I like the art style, very stealthy looking.

If there is one thing I would like more of it's Capital ships! Otherwise great fun. Good job!

Haha, thanks entropy! I hope you enjoy future content as well. There will be some capitals coming up, but they are WIP.

Hum for your new ships, do you plan to add them just like that or is it only the shape? Coz' that's kinda... Weird?

Played a bit more of Citadels, i think they could be considered as overpowered. The supply cost is negligible, same with the CR cost. Would they have extremely bad ships i could understand, but they are actually close to high-tech levels, especially the weapons.

Are you using Codex 20? That mod is always handy for balancing. I would be surprised if it rate them as balanced right now though (i don't know if Codex can rate the weapons, that could explain everything actually).

Another thing, but that's more a personal point of view here. Why the Citadel system is so far? To get there from Corvus you have to fly like 1 or 2 minute. Personaly i hate waiting stuffs like that, that's why i usually change the positioning of modded systems like the Zorgs, Nomads and Citadels to be closer to Corvus.

Then again i repeat, it's a personal opinion and if there's some lore explanation for the distance, it's fine for me. It's just that i find boring to have your system on the edge of the map as the player won't often go there.

Thanks for the input, Helmut!

Of course, they are only the outlines. I would be crazy to put them in like that.

Thanks for the tip on OP. I planned to redo the logistical stats for all of my stuff anyways. They should have midline stats in my opinion. It's just fitting for the lore, for they are low tech\high tech mashups. You can remove all armor plates for any ship, and rreplace them in an instant, but the engines would take longer than that.

The lore implies that Citadel is a relatively remote system, kinda like PACK. That was necessary to have an isolated startup.

Did you even read the lore? Just wondering...

I did, quickly. Well, very quickly i have to admit. I just remembered that they were basically mercenaries...

Then again, after reading more thoroughly the lore, i don't see why they should be so far from anyone. After the collapse, most of the sector map would have needed to be redone and because of the lack of Citadel space presence, they ended up unnoticed, which explain the lack of visitors like the Hegemony and the Tri-Tachyons. They don't need to be far away to be unnoticed, space is big enough for this.  And the comparison with PACK worlds is weird as Canis isn't really that far from Corvus (in USs that is, don't remember in vanilla).

I just noticed, all your fighters wings have a CR cost of 25% so they barely have any ship replacement. For comparison the Talon have a 4% CR cost. Also, the Wayfarer is named as a frigate but the game consider it as a Destroyer (it can have 20 OP in flux).

I played more of the campaign until i encountered a very annoying bug. I don't know if it come from your mod though. Basically your flagship engines suddenly stop working in the battle, i can turn, strafe and go backward but not forward. The only way to fix it is to enable the autopilot but sometimes it goes autopilot enabled and autopilot disabled at the same time, preventing the AI to take control of it. The problem still persist when i switch flagship during battle.

I played with the Exigency mod and the Altari, so it could come from there, as MesoTroniK use a gazillion scripts for his mod and some bugs may still be here. I don't know for etherealblade though.

Helmut I doubt that error came from my mod, I've never seen anything like that even with very long campaign plays. Its true my mod is scripted like crazy, but even if they contained bugs they should not do anything like you described.

My mod doesn't use any scripts at all, and MesoTroniK's doesn't play with the controls... I don't know what I can do about it!

Hoo boy, there is a LOT of stuff being changed in the dev version. Also, I would in debt to the person who reports/reveiws the ship strengths. I am really frustrated with the balance Codex, its been pooping all over my computer, complaining about harpoon mrm projectiles when I haven't even touched them!

Ah, well, time to start working on the Crusader destroyer I guess. It's about time I fill in the gap of destroyers. Speaking of which, I am going to make the dwarf class frigate bigger, cause it is really tiny for a frigate. There is a civilian freighter planned, which will replace the current buffaloes as a dedicated logistics ship.

Until next time...
