Domain Historical Society

An eclectic mix of highly accomplished adventurer historians, domain romantics, pre-collapse administrators and admirals pulled from cryosleep and board members of some of the sector's larger salvaging companies, all part of a single faction that (outwardly, at least) is dedicated to the preservation not only of Domain Law, but of Domain Culture. Using a mix of low tech and midline ships, backed up by an impressive collection of techmined blueprints, the DHS provides modest support to the Hegemony, while retaining most of their forces for exploration into the sector, to discover and protect any domain ruins from the grasp of independent salvagers or, indeed, anyone but themselves.

Ships:

The Techmined ships that make up the majority of DHS forces originate primarily from the late mastery epoch and thus possess solid armour and a mostly ballistic oriented loadout. They also tend towards slightly higher speed and agility than more standard mastery era craft, although at the cost of rather uncompromising internals, making it difficult to outfit them with more advanced weaponry.

Major Contributors:

Amazingh:
For all the actual implementation that my caveman brain really struggles with, as well as a decent bit of polish.

Vayra:
Adding more complex scripts that to me, are effectively magic.

Other Contributors:

Nia, Yendorc, A mysterious stranger whom I love and HELMUTT for spriting advice, without which would have lead to a rather more ugly mod.

Astarat & Puretilt, Techpriest & Belkie, for getting their own mods done and FOMOing me into finally completing something myself.

Szylva, without which, the mod wouldn't exist, since it originated from me pilfering the design cues from a frigate they did and building a whole faction out of it before redoing every single sprite from scratch.

And everyone else who lurked in the modding section of the starsector discord, shitposting. You're all awful.

When I read techmined ships I think HMI and when I think HMI I think quality.

I like the faction concept and that they're a smaller faction that works with the Hegemony. And I really like the color palette on the ships.

Full release is nearing completion, its mostly polish at the moment, filling out missing descriptions and the like. I've also been working on a set of portraits for release, shown below.

Top right guy gave me 40k Mechanicus vibes, then I saw the alpha core embedded in his chest. Gives me even bigger Mechanicus vibes now, what with them existing alongside the Imperium but doing heretical stuff (and this faction apparently helps Hegemony but does stuff with AI).

The ship sprites are lovely as well, I dig the color scheme.
