:)

I have very fond memories of the Pike and the Perentie.

Good luck getting up to speed with everything, hope it is not too traumatic - and look forward to seeing this updated.

Well, with the latest release, I've decided to attempt updating my mod -  a number of things will be changed/updated though.

Heeey, welcome back :)

Event so unexpected that Alex himself decided to speak! I remember that I've looked on this mod much time ago and decided to wait until it's updated (I played on 0.54 back then, I think?). I guess I waited long enough. :)

Amazing. Just amazing.

I never expected this to live again. 0.5.4 feels like a millennium ago.

You have some really awesome-looking ships! I'm excited to see this updated.
Might want to wait on 81a though, that way you don't have to update everything twice.

How big of a change would 0.81a be? I would assume nowhere near as big as 0.8a (And if 0.81a is only a few months away, it might not even be done in time, what with graphics & factions that need to be redone.)

Well apparently one of the big issues most modders have right now is the inability to use modules for their ships. Although that's really a better question for Alex anyway.

Pressure's on now :D

Edit: re 0.8.1a, doing my best not to break mods with it, and hoping to keep it save-compatible as well. It's mostly a giant pile of bugfixes, minor polish, and balance tweaks.

Cool, thats good to hear (Re: compatibility)

I guess I'll avoid touching modules for now.

So current plan:
0: Get old computer working (Done)
1: Get latest (unreleased) files off of it (edit: this is not going so well, the files so far appear nowhere to be found, but I'm still trying more checks with a brute-force python script)
2: Start working on porting the ships & weapons over
3: Rebuild factions from the ground up
4: Redo/Polish ships, add more ships
5: Release

Well it seems that latest version had disappeared - cant find it on any computer.. I might as well take the opportunity to just do things from the ground up! (might as well, what with all the updated sprites in the base game)

The factions described in the OP will be pretty similar:

The Ceredia Imperium will still be very low-tech, using primarily their own pre-autofactory designs (with updated graphics, may have some renames, etc). They have a large well-populated capital world with only limited autofactory production - most of their current production is using more conventional means with the sheer population and resources they have at their disposal.

The Directorate will still be very high-tech, with fancy high-end bleeding-edge designs of their own creation and heavily automated (but non-sentient) ships. Their capital world is a somewhat populated cold planet where the primary industry is agriculture, and they largely rely on their dealings with the both legitimate traders (for food) and the Green Sun Pirates (for tech) to obtain blank master chips and raw materials.

The Green Sun Pirates will be all over the board, using everything from converted freighters to what the Directorate deems its 'old obsolete designs'. GSP are headquartered in an old partially-constructed astroarcology and the planet it orbits. While they still call themselves Pirates, they are technically Privateers and the Directorate treats them as an 'autonomous extended military' as well as a means of resource acquisition and getting dirty work done. GSP as a result leaves a few factions alone who are valuable trading partners of the Directorate.

The Isoran Republic will have mid and high-tech designs, including a small number of older Directorate designs. They are made up of a number of moderately populous worlds and some smaller stations.

Also had an idea for a 5th faction, but they aren't quite fleshed out yet.

If you are interested in up to date variants of Mantha and Titan i can send them to you. I port them to each new version for own use. The Titan looks really great with some weapons from the old Firestorm Federation mod.

I also always port both impulse assault point defense line and Thor and Rift cannons. They look great when used with the Gekelonian mod (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=4320.msg67048#msg67048) fleet that i have nearly ported to .8 with permission to release from it's author. If you want we can combine work on this faction in your mod, as without those 4 guns the Gekeloninan fleet in it's current state will just be incomplete.
