Faction description:


The New Galactic Order is a dictatorship with heavy nationalistic influences and is build upon an old terran ideology. The main idea behind the NGO is to
establish an ideology to change the nature of the whole sector into a peaceful environment without corruption, decadence, false religions and financial slavery. When the
 need arises even by force!

The message of the first sight of an NGO invasion fleet spread very fast around the sector and the big factions got nervous to see such impressive military
 fleet coming out of nowhere. The knowledge about the NGO infused confusion among the established factions and scattered the most bizarre rumors around.
 Some people believe that the NGO is the final liberation from all the despair and corruption that is currently present in the whole sector, other malicious
 tongues believe that the NGO is just another terrorist organization financed by old fanatic ideologists. Only one fact is true, that the closed file Exploration
 841 got opened up again and that the intelligence agencies of the head faction are in steady exchange of data. People of the sector are right now divided into
 two groups, hate or love for the New Galactic Order.

Some politicians suspect the Interstellar Imperium to be one of the main financial supporters of the New Galactic Order and that there exists an extensive
exchange of information between those two factions, in political, economical, scientific and military aspects. Even positive relations to the Independents can
 not be excluded. It's still unknown how long those relationships are been there but the fact that the NGO possesses an terra-formed planet and that no
agencies of the head factions knew about the NGO speak volumes and only raises the already present paranoia, especially those of the Hegemony who closed
the secret file ages ago.

The leadership of the NGO convicted the established factions to be responsible for the growing decadence and the downfall of human values since the
 collapse. Their only way to secure the future of the human species lies in peace through war, in eradicating the corruption and to sow the seed of an most
perfect ideology into the hearts and minds of all people in the sector.


 
                                                                                

                                                      "And the phoenix arises out of his ashes to take vengeance on his foes."

                                                       Gudrun:
                                                           Commander of the battlecruiser "Awakening"



                                                       "Our sun shines, bright, the darkness falls, for now and forever."

                                                       Hausser:
                                                           Leader of the NGO Invasion Fleet and commander of the battleship "Event Horizon"



                                                       "We watched the decadence growing, we saw the lies and the hate.
                                                         Now we are ready to perish those madness, to liberate all people from their false ideologies
                                                         and religions.
"

                                                       Glude:

                                                       "The end and the beginning, we bring it both."

                                                       Sigurd:
                                                           Commander of the battlecruiser "Revelation"

Yes you are right tartiflette, the general art he used is from "Stars in Shadow" game but outdated. Also he didn't changed anything of the available art content. I will use the art and modify them to my pleasing.

My only grip is that all ships are very similar. Not that much of a problem when you go from the battleship to the cruiser (also, aren't the ships a bit small compared to vanilla?) but the two destroyers confused me at first. Same "bumpers" on the sides, same torpedo tubes, roughly the same shape... Any more ships like those and battles could get quite confusing.

Anyway, good luck with the coding.

Thank you all for the warmth welcome,

@Helmut, yes the two destroyer look very similar, but it is intended cuz the heavy destroyer is just an overloaded/fitted normal destroyer. Ofcourse i could look to change the front of the normal destroyer a bit to create more differences between them

*for now im completely focused on the art and ship design, i hope the coding etc will not be impossible for a beginner, we will see

I just noticed your portraits. I really love the comical feeling of 'em. They look reliable and beautifully made. I'm looking forward to see them when you resized them to proper starsector size.

Your superfreighter looks more like a brawler to me, just saying. She looks gorgeous. The bright-looking parts with the red light thingy, are those flight decks?

hey Ryxsen1421,

yes you are right, those are flightdecks. Yeah the shape is more  rounded off cuz it's very slow moving and more of a platform, a rounder shape is better to defend the whole large ship with less weapons, maybe i change something here and there. The Battlefreighter is a mixture of a superfreigher/carrier/cruiser. Slow, much cargo and some good weapon mounts for a freighter. Also two flightdecks to give the NGO fleet some crucial wing support.

The flight deck feels unnatural to me, the large white rectangle thingy made it look kinda silly imo. I'd recommend trying darker grey for the base color.

I have a critic concerning the sprites. They are grey, very grey. And it doesn't looks very good.

In vanilla SS, there's almost no hint of grey in David's sprites. Even the "grey-est" modded factions (Templars, P9, Valkyrians...) aren't as "grey" as your ships. It's especially obvious your ships as they have lines that beg to be colored.

Here i tried to add some random colors.



Your version only have the windows colored and a very slight yellow on the engines. Even if the color scheme of your faction is close to grey, an absolute, pure grey looks out of place. It's always better to add a very faint color on it to avoid this.

I don't know what color scheme you'll use for your faction but this thread might help you.
