I meant ballistic ammunition. Sorry, I didn't convey that well  :-\.

To get back on topic, are all the ballistae sizes going to regenerate at the same rate?

No; that would be ludicrous.  The small version will come in at barely a trickle while the large version will be relatively quick.

Version 1.7:

- Siege event added

Would it be possible to make it so that sieges, if left alone long enough, would start decreasing the population of a planet until it became a dead planet? It just seems like it could be an interesting way to make warring factions actually gain/lose ground against each other.

While that's possible, the game isn't really set up for that in a way that would make such a mechanic desirable.

So how long are sieges supposed to last? I've had one on Jangala for a long time, and it doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon.

EDIT: nvm, it just ended.

Awesome mod! One of the best i think. Though this ship-sized missile sprites looks a bit out of place.

Good news, my existing save loaded up and kept rolling along fine, so I can keep missing trade opportunities while I yearn for a Nevermore to reappear on market. ;D

Hey, just wanted to drop in and say that while I haven't interacted with this faction much, it feels really nice to fight. Well balanced, good variety. I like the fighters a whole lot too, heavy fighters seem under used far too often.

Hey man, i would like to see some improvements to the "Jupiter-class Defense Platform". I can't tell if you have already change some stuff in the new 65.2a version because i wait for all the mods to be updated but from my previous 50+ hours of gameplay with your faction i wanted to make some comments.

I really tried to use them but they have too much disadvantages for their costs. Yes their role is to annihilate massive amounts of fighter wings and to give supportive destruction power when an enemy shield is down. But all this doesn't work really well. The in-build cannon of the jupiter has explosive damage type so its very uneffective vs the most time in fight against shields etc. , its super unmanuverable so it can't follow little fighter to shoot down, its weapon range is great "on paper" but still not enough range to really support from way behind, that also brings in some new problems. Most of the times the jupiter can't even shoot because this little friendly fighter or this frigate or that destroyer or this cruiser is in his way because they fight in the front against multiple enemies. The poor jupiter never catches up because its something like stationary and because of its steadily try to shoot at something. But it can't because most of the time there is something in its way or the enemy is too fast or the enemy is a strong ship with still enabled shield so it can't make a big difference with its beam explosive weapon.

Jupiter is mainly intended for AI fleets, also it does fragmentation damage.  The Jupiter's purpose is actually to push capital ships away.  Isolate an enemy capital ship and the Jupiter can keep it pushed out a few thousand units forever.  I'll buff up its turn stats and weapon force to facilitate this.
