Instead of completely scrapping the old Allistair, just make it a different ship or modification. Have two battlecruisers.
This^ Please!

In short:

No

In long:

Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Well damn... OK

... Why? The old sprite is to say... Not Good, and Gwyvern knows this but the new art is quite good! Also the new one is virtually the same ship, just a better visual design, different shape (but still broadly similar overall), and similar weapons package though actually upgraded a bit.

Having two battlecruisers for this faction just doesn't make sense for mechanical reasons, balance reasons, workload reasons, and even lore reasons.

Ok..but why? There's nothing wrong with the old ship design.

Except that I can do better, and did do better, and now the old one looks awful compared to the new one, and keeping both would only serve to create jarring visual inconsistency within the mod.

What is the Exodus Initiative? I can't find it on page 1, or page 8... sorry if this is a silly question but I've never heard of it before or seen it in game? is it an alternate name for arkgneisis?

This right here. The redesign has upped the visual quality massively and the old design just doesn't live up to that standard even remotely.

You are right, that is a silly question, but I believe in answering questions regardless of their sillyness.



Exodus Initiative has been the name for the "Tech Level" of every Ship, Wing, and Weapon in this mod since v1.0, barring the Champion and associated armaments.

I think trashman is just saying the old design had a certain appeal to him. It was a reliable ship with nice proportions, and probably got him through some tight spots  :)

Thanks for the awesome mod!

While I preferred the overall angular silhouettes of the originals, these sprites look awesome and more fitting to the rest of SS at that. Looking forwards to seeing the rest!

LEGACY OF ARKGNEISIS v1.4.2 EXISTS AS OF 5 SECONDS AGO

This update is really just some minor things that have cropped up over the past few months, the sprite rework is still a long ways out unfortunately.

- The market script governing much of the custom behavior of ARS markets has been updated, in addition to plugging a leak, and generally optimizing the script's performance, the part that removed ARS hulls from ARS civilian markets and replaced them with SG variants has been REMOVED ENTIRELY, you can now buy ARS standard hulls at these markets.

- The rarities of various weapons in the ARS lineup has been adjusted, Incendiary launchers and blasters have been made *slightly* rarer so that they inundate various faction markets a little less, and the rarities of Pellet weapons have been fixed so that they are less...non-existent in ARS markets.

- Earl Strike Fighters have had their behavior improved, they will now no longer wave off early when doing a bombing run, wasting much of the damage potential of their beam.

- Ace Heavy Interceptors have had their primary weapons adjusted, they do much less damage but fire much more often, they still essentially play the same role as they did before, though should be less efficient at cracking heavy warship armor.

The new artwork looks much better but the silhouette shape seems like a step back to me, now it's just another big triangle like so many other ships.

I'm sorry you feel that way.

As you all know, progress on this mod has been a bit slow since I've been helping DR with his works, but that progress is non zero, as of today, all cruisers and capital ship sprites have been re-worked, which means I am at least 50% done with the new ship sprites, if not more. Though I have yet to start on the reworked weapon sprites, but I don't expect that to be much work compared to re-doing the ships.



Progress can only accelerate at this point, as the ships get smaller and the material to bash from gets bigger!

Nice work!  Especially the biggest one at the far right, there.
