Hello Everyone, So this is my first mod ever....
With that I mean that I haven't made any mod in my life so this is all new to me.
Second thing is I am not experienced with coding and spriting..... don't expect much from this mod...(All ship sprites are 80% Vanilla taken from the core game, I just put them together and put some details on it)
I'm not a native English speaker either so prepare for some cringe worthy grammar or sentence building style thingy.

Anyway here is the: Download v1.15
Compatible with: Nexerelin

WARNING! Delete the older version, instead of copying over it. This will avoid problems with the mod

What this mod currently adds:
    +Ships
    +Missions
    +Custom Weapons
    +A faction hullmod
    +Some custom shipsystems
    +Campaign integration

Infected ship/weapon pros/cons
+Low maintenance costs
+High amount of turret and hardpoints

*Varying quality of ships
*They mostly use vanilla weapons
*faction specific weapons often have high/unlimited "ammo" but low range.

-ugly
-Mostly non-symmetric ships with odd/awkward turret and hardpoint placements.
-Ships often have trouble maintaining low flux levels.

Ships (also WIP) :
(skin) Infected Kite


(skin) Infected Hound


(skin) Infected Cerberus


(skin) Infected Wolf


(skin) Infected Brawler


(skin) Infected Lasher


(skin) Infected Tempest


(skin) Infected Vigilance


(fighter) Necro Bug (interceptor)


(fighter) Necro Hornet (Fighter)


(fighter) Necro Spitter (Bomber)


(ship) Necro Raider (Frigate)


(ship) Necro Gunner (Gunship)


(ship) Necro Array (Frigate)


(ship) Necro Scab (Frigate)


(ship) Necro Spearhead (Frigate)


(ship) Necro Hauler (Micro Hauler)


(ship) Necro Skinner (Destroyer)


(ship) Necro Ghoul (Destroyer)


(ship) Necro Tarantula (Carrier)


(ship) Necro Reaper (Heavy Cruiser)


(ship) Necro Mover (Mega Hauler)


(ship) Necro Mother (Capital Hivemind)


What I still want to do with the mod is:
  • Campaign Integration Done! Can still use some work though since it is still very early.
  • (more) Custom Weapons
  • More balancing/Tweaking
  • Better sprites? (have "improved" and overhauled all sprites, Still can be vastly improved though)
  • More ships
  • etc.

Programs used:
  • Gimp 2 for the sprites
  • Trylobot's ship editor (Without it this mod wouldn't exist)
  • Notepad / Sublime Text
  • IntelliJ IDEA Community
  • Starsector (Well duh)
  • This forum and you guys! (Again without you guys this mod wouldn't exist!
  • Got some textures from here.

So thats it... Critisism is always appreciated (Just be gentle Smiley )
Be it on grammar/Lore/Graphics or the mod itself, Also please report any crashes that is caused by the mod (or if you think the mod has caused it)

Download is on the top of the page.

As always ENJOY!

Well some WIP mods (such as mine), and many-many discontinued WIP mods somehow posts in the modding section. I don't know if thats the right thing to do but i guess its okay for now.

EDIT : Haven't tried it yet but that's a nice lasher kitbash right there.

 This mod reminds me of The Scourge and The Abomination, aka other attempts to give SS ships cancer.

 Looking better is a matter of practice, I have seen modders start from ,,meh,, and reach ,,OMFG,, with practice, tutorials and patience.
 Im sure you will get better in time.

 That being said, the Necro Raider reminds me of SPAZ zombie ships, all glued together by flesh, as a matter of fact you could have different stages of disease: mere vines growing on singular ships---ships/ship parts cobbled together---large indistinguishable lumps of flesh and metal etc ( what you already probably did as I cant play right now).
 One advice thou: tear the ships apart,make them look damaged, the Necro for example, putting three frigates on top of one another isnt very impressive.

Lets hope so

The SPAZ zombie ships have indeed been an inspiration. I had that idea too of having different stages (The skin ships are most likely early infected and the hybrids are ships where most systems didnt work anymore so they (the infected) just put them together and improvised). About the big lumps of fleshpart, I initially had the idea to make the bigger ships (destroyers / cruisers / capitals) have more actual flesh then hull, then I remembered that I suck at spriting. However this may come in the future (most likely actually)

One advice thou: tear the ships apart,make them look damaged, the Necro for example, putting three frigates on top of one another isnt very impressive.

I have some ships that are not whole anymore and are just half put on another half which sorta makes them look damaged... But i get what you mean
Im also gonna put all the sprites in the post because I dont wanna be a secrecy douchebag. (Edit: Its done)

Anyway thanks for the feedback Cheesy

The Ghoul's two-face design is delightful.

  Nailed it with the ghoul, really seamless blending, the gunner isn't bad as well. What program are you using?  Part of a good sprite is a good program and the vines look like they were done in paint.
Again, for reference look up The Abomination made by Tsony, some of the best cancer ships you'll ever see.
As for the rest, tutorials ( there are some on the forums made by good modders) and practice.

Peace.
