 The Exalted are ex-Tri-Tachyon Corporation members who have grown to strongly dislike them over the years. Shortly after the Second AI War began, the forerunners of the Exalted took advantage of the chaos to flee the Core Worlds with a massive amount of ships, personnel and supplies. Long after the war ended, Tri-Tachyon Corporation was primarily occupied with rebuilding itself and assumed the mass amount of company property lost during their conflict with the Church and Hegemony was destroyed in the war, ensuring the Exalted's freedom and anonymity, allowing them to pursue their own goals.

The Exalted believe that advanced technology is the only hope to survive in the current political climate they find themselves in and have come to the conclusion that Tri-Tachyon's abuse of technology, the Galactic Church's ignorance and the Terran Hegemony's stubborn clingyness to a dead empire will be the end of humanity. Instead, these people choose to campaign against such beliefs. Within their short time in power, they have earned a reputation for being cruel and ruthless to any military officer unfortunate enough to be captured, but merciful to any innocents caught in between the crossfire of most battles.

Future Plans:
somehow fix the open-market tanker spam
add a Fury (EX)
overhaul the mordare

The Exalted don't have a Nexerelin diplomacy profile in my game, this probably means they don't have diplomacy traits or stuff like that. If it's the case, you should consider adding those.

I'll reinstall and keep trying and see if i messed something up or something.

EDIT:
Ok, so, for reasons unknown to me it is now working as intended, now it has a diplomacy profile and and everything as it should. So i guess nevermind what i said before, i screwed up somewhere, somehow. :o

Sorry for the inconvinience!

Looking forward to seeing this developed dude.

I hope it is easy to make it compatible with the majority of mods for Starsector.

I've got a good computer so I like to pile it on. The more factions fighting each other the better!

Glad to hear it! At the moment im kinda taking a break from modding as i burned myself out a little bit (gonna get back to it in the future) trying to work on 2 mods and potentially a 3rd, but i do have some more plans id like to implement down the line including more custom relations between modded factions.

I was trying to figure out why my game slowed to a crawl, then approached a system containing your faction. I can't say for sure that was the issue but good lord look at all that! There were just as many patrolling outside of the system, it was crazy!

Ah yeah, you have varyas sector installed? I think the raiding function does that, ill remove compatibility next update so this doesn't happen, at least till varya updates.

Speaking of which the new lich sprite is nearing completion so after that a few minor changes and the next exalted update will be out

Post by: connortron7 on January 31, 2021, 03:03:40 PM
still not dead! the new lich sprite is mostly done, gotta smooth alota stuff and mess with shading.
bouncing around the idea of a green secondary color as having one color can be bland. but not 100% sure yet
(https://i.imgur.com/yusI3FT.png)

once this is done all thats left is to make a new apparition sprite then a few bug fixes and its ready to roll out, lifes been slowin this down, i used to be able to shoot these updates out monthly but oh well, better late then never

I am! Just slow atm, working on a another mod atm (more information on the now dead Anvil Industries forum page) and trying to get it into a playable state.
Exalted will probably get updated around the release of the other mod tbh, just dont know when that is.

As for the next updates changes:
Adding a tanker phylactery
Replacing the omen (ex) with a new frigate
Removing the priest HVB
Hopefully adding some custom sounds for the weapons
Replacing the werewolf with the ceilo from anvil (rip)
And maybe a new urn sprite? No promises on that yet.

yeah sorry. it and the old omen sprite where the last of the original pure grey sprites and well, pure grey sprites are bad, the sprite in general did not age well tbh and didn't fit with all the newer ones in terms of quality, and im not in the market to be making a decent capital ship sized sprite to replace it as thats always alota toruble.

Oof. Yeah, it was rough. I had to revert to the old version. At least until I can properly offload stuff. Any chance I can bribe you for a MK.IV that's a 700 cargo hauler? ;)

Hello, i was wondering how does one get acess to faction ships early in the game without nexaralin. Do you have to get comminsioned by the faction in order to gain acess to their ships. Sorry for dumb question, i guess its in general for other faction mods too. So I am starting a fresh 0.95a run,was just wandering how do procure custom factions ships in vanillaish setting.

Starting up a new game with Exalt, Roider, and Tahlan shipyards.

When Underworld updates I really want to run a game with Exalt, Cabal, and Tritach.

I also had luck with the black market's in the Mausoleum sector. I assume that the hotfix also means that the ship pool should be more balanced. Because I was having to use blackmarkets exclusively to get the other variants of the Phylactery. Particularly the I and II ones.

Yes the mausoleum black market thats what i said, tomb is in the mausoleum star system, also yeah ove always been having difficulties with freighter spawning, the faction as a whole spams tankers in the open market so much that the only place to get the cargo and crew phylacterys is the military and black market idk what the issue is

Ah, I misread that. I thought you had meant the Catacombs one. That blackmarket and normal market both seem to be more balanced ship wise. Though the blackmarket definitely has the higher tier vessels.

Are the Phalactry Tanker MKIII's supposed to have ground support package? It seems to make the Troop Carriers nearly redundant, looked like an oversight.

Also I am absolutely digging the faction, and everything.

I am at 100% rep with The Exalted.

In my current playthrough I have only seen some of the higher end Exalted weapons populate once in their markets. I have been waiting a few months and still not seeing any of the high rep weapons for sale.

Edit: I bought out all the inventories and it seemed to help refresh it, maybe. I was looking for the Siege Cannon, which is hilarious. As far as balance is concerned it is OK vs shields, Good against Armor, and Fantastic against Hull, Flux efficient, and is neither too fast or slow.

Just a heads up, the Aire Burst Laser, the Fuego Cannon, the Tierra Burst Cannon, and the Agua Blaster are a lot louder than other weapon systems to the point where it drowns out sounds.

yeah the mordare is a high rarity weapon like the tach lance, the main factor in higher grade exalted weapons is the fact that they only have 1 military market to spawn in so pickings are thin compared to vanilla weapons aswell ( i might look into doing something about that, maybe exalted weapons can be rarely found in independent markets or somethin idk)

E: Also could just say "suffers from rapid CR degradation", or at least take out the its  ;D


EE: Aaaaaalso, according to the tech skill that improves phase ships, neither the geist nor the witch count as combat phase ships (says efficiency at x supply of combat phase, currently 0 with both in fleet).

thanks for the typo callouts  ;D

also i the prob there is i (like an idiot) want my spin on the phase cloak and made my own that doesnt count, that was in the early stages of exalted and ill replace em with the reg phase cloak.

I like the changes, especially the super ship start. My issue with the Ex Odd is that without the plasma burn it really loses that maneuverability that allowed it to brawl.

Did you delete the old version before adding this one?

Others have had the "problem" and it was because they overwrote the old one instead of deleting it

Hey! Having a great time with the mod so far. One thing I noticed is that There are no phylactery Mk.I's in the mausosleum system. There are 15 Mk.III's, and 6 MkII's across the markets on Tomb. Is this intentional? I didn't see anyone else asking this question so perhaps it's just something on my end. Thanks for your response and this awesome mod!

Thsts a known problem with the exalted thati cant for the life of me figure put, they just want to spam tankers in general and refuse to spawn freighters, im most likely gonna remove all of the phylacterys and add 1 that's just an all purpose cargo/tanker/transport ship. Hopefully that'll help but who knows.

I'd definitely put my vote in for a combined vessel, even if it meant making it a bit more expensive to compensate. It'd definitely help with fleet bloat when trying to do trading runs, heh.

I'm afraid the Exhalted got bullied out of existence early in my first use of the mod, but they still are listed in the faction list even though they have had no markets for 10 cycles.
AFAIK, usually they get removed.
