    Requires LazyLib and MagicLib


    Works great with:
    LazyWizard's Version Checker
    Histidine's Nexerelin

    This mod will be expanded slowly, will add Hyperion Systems (ie. Hegemony) and Confederacy missions.

    REMINDER: All the ships are "imperfectly" kitbashed, and "slightly" unbalanced.

    Your experience with this mod will be different with others, as this mod is procedurally-generating industries, planets, planetary conditions, and spawning of this mod's faction on selected star systems.




    History of Hyperion Systems:

    Hyperion Systems, or Hyperion as it was called back at the Human Domain-era is one of the largest ship and weapons manufacturer that competed against the Tri-Tachyon Corporation. They originally designed and patented the first Phase-class ships and technologies that the Domain Fleet usually use. Hyperion Systems was founded on Mars at the later stages of the Sol System being fully colonized, recruited and commissioned by Earth's Space Expeditionary Force to build new and high-tech equipment, systems, and later ships and weapons for the rapid expansion of the Human race in the universe.

    It was then at commented and written by Ayomide Callisto at the days of the Hyperspace Expansion-era that FTL technology was developed "originally" by the Tri-Tachyon Corporation, but what they did not realized that Hyperion Systems was the first corporation that developed in the cover of secrecy the phase-class ships commissioned by Earth's Space Expeditionary Force to send as scouts in other sectors. These scout ships were the Cassiopeia-class and Eridani-class ships.

    Later, as the Human Domain-era collapsed and the gates were abandoned and deactivated, many of the ships and blueprints of these ships were transferred to the Persean Sector by the Hegemony and the Tri-Tachyon Corporation, but then subsequently "lost" due to the internal Persean Sector conflicts that happened after. As the sector slowly had its peace and silence, the knowledge and blueprints of this ships were found again by some Hegemony soldiers at a hidden, underground military base in the planet Jangala.

    Now, Hyperion Systems is no longer an active corporation, but a shell of its former existence running covertly in Hegemony-controlled territory, all their ships are now on the hold of the Hegemony.



    History of Hyperion Confederacy, faction of Hyperion Systems

    Year C+87, the First AI War is occuring in the Persean Sector, Hyperion Systems was already an established corporation working in the shadows and wealth of the Hegemony. While war is happening in the sector, three high ranking officials of the company decided to leave the company and the Hegemony to seek better lives and to create their own government, same as the Persean League's goals.

    It was there at one of Jangala's hangars where they set out on their journey. While on the hangars, they decided to grab three ships docked in the hangar, a Naos-class Battlecruiser, a Alycone-class Cruiser, and a Orionis-class Battlecruiser. They hated the way the Hegemony treated, and taxed the people after the collapse. They went and went, fought some Hegemony patrols, and alot of pirates along the way.

    They ended up first at Penelope's Star, they remembered the planet Ithaca, which was on the way of being terraformed, when they got there, they saw that it was in chaos, and the terraforming was halted because of the war. So they left the system and almost gotten defeated by a large remnant fleet. Luckly, they found an unknown star system that the remnant never tried to colonize. But when they entered the star system, they found out a moon of a gas giant was a pirate's city. Sneakily, they got past of some pirate freighter fleet. There they realized the three planets, all habitable, and untouched by any people, nor the pirates landed into the planets. (Though they know it is there.) They thought their ships were empty of people inside, but unbeknownst to the three, they brought a sizeable population from the ships. There they started their quest to start a new lives, and to forge a new government that is free, and open for everyone.

    Now, they are a mighty and well established splinter group of the Hegemony and the Hyperion Systems Corporation, and also defended their position in the sector. (Though they left the pirate moon city on their star system.)

    Ships and Wings:
    Spoiler
    Naos-class Battlecruiser
    The Naos-class Supercruiser was one of the original capital-class ships designed by Hyperion Systems back at the Human Domain-era. It was one of the original ships that was sent as a seedship to colonize other planets via the multi-generational ship. Though, through the years it was slowly redesigned as a Capital-class battleship.

    Orionis-class Phased Battlecruiser
    This ship is one of the original phase-based ships to be designed back at the Human Domain-era. It was originally designed as an experiment, a X-class ship dedicated for studiying phase technology. It was almost lost when the collapse happened, but it was then jump gated by the commander of the ship to the Persean System as a way to escape the problems in the Sol System. It ended up into Hyperion Systems' Persean Sector's orbital laboratories and was re-designed as a phased battleship and manufactured.

    Perseus-class Supercarrier
    The original capital carriers designed by Hyperion Systems for the Human Domain Space Forces. It has six hangar bays designed to carry advanced space-based combat, and to drop a large army to a planet.

    Scuti-class Combat Phased Superfreighter
    It is one of the original freighter ship designed by Hyperion Systems' rivals Arcjet Corporation. This was one of the primary freight used by the Human Domain's primary military freight service, but then quickly lost when the collapse happened.

    Arcturus-class Combat Phased Supertanker
    A re-design or a refit of the venerable Prometheus-class heavy tanker, it was conceived by some of the Hegemony's Freight Union to increase the delivery of fuel across the Persean Sector against the original Prometheus. With additional defences of course.

    Izar-class Combat Phased Troopcarrier
    The successor of the Carinae-class Troop Transport, it is a re-design of the Starliner-class Civilian Transport, redesigned for military troop transport and deployment to planets. Hyperion Systems was chosen to re-design the Starliner-class to a military variant by the Hegemony.

    Alycone-class Cruiser
    An old cruiser design, originally designed back at the middle of the Human Domain-era. It was originally manufactured by Hyperion Systems Earth Branch, but the blueprints were quickly shipped to other branches before the collapse happened.

    Becrux-class Phased Cruiser
    This phased cruiser was idealized by the Hyperion Systems Persean Sector Jangala Branch back just after the collapse of the Human Domain occurred. This ship was the primary defence of the Hyperion Systems Persean Sector for defending it's trade secrets to the growing problem of anarchy in the system.

    Carinae-class Destroyer
    Originally designed as a light-to-medium freighter back at the Human Domain-era, it was one of Hyperion Systems' original ships and it was converted into a crew transport just before the collapse. Now it is redesigned as a destroyer of some kind.

    Sirius-class Phased Destroyer
    The Sirius-class phase destroyer was originally a non-phased destroyer designed by the Tri-Tachyon Corporation in the middle of the Human Domain-era. It was then shelved but when the collapse happened the original blueprints were lost in one of the systems near the Persean Sector. It was recovered by Hyperion Systems in one of Persean Sector's gates in an old, abandoned, and damaged Betelgeuse-class Superfreighter originally owned by the 113th Militarized Freight Group that was killed-in-action by swarms of pirates and looters at the Persean Sector as the try to re-activate a gate to another system.

    Eridani-class Frigate
    A late Human Domain-era frigate that was originally deployed as a way to counter the defeat in the Battle for Earth. It was then quickly re-manufactured by Hyperion Systems right after the collapse for additional protection of interests.

    Cassiopeia-class Phased Frigate
    This ship is one of the original frigates of the Human Domain Planet Bombardment Fleet, one of this ship is originally used for destroying one large area of a planet from its large, dish-like weapon that was replaced internally with a Autopulse Cannon.

    Achernar-class Phased Bomber
    An old, but dependable, and highly capable bomber. Using its dual Sagittarius MRMs and Point Defense Lasers that is capable of damaging even the most highly armored, and hull amount. Designed by Hyperion Systems for the Naos-class Battlecruiser as a heavy offensive fighter.

    Mintaka-class Phased Interceptor
    A fast and nimble interceptor designed to wipe all enemy bombers, fighters, interceptors, and assault wings. It can also be used to destroy light-to-medium armored targets with its heavy autocannons. Designed to defend any fleet, station, or planet.
    [close]

    Weapons:
    Spoiler
    Cygnus Autocannon
    This point defence system is designed as a middle-point successor to the venerable Dual Light Machine Guns and the Dual Light Autocannons, it is designed as both a point defence system and a faster firing autocannon that can both obliterate incoming missiles and fighters, as well as smaller ships and their shields.

    Mini Minotaur Cannon
    A smaller caliber, faster firing version of the Minotaur Cannon that can still shred shields and lighter armor and hulls of ships. It might be a less powerful version of the Minotaur Cannon, but it still packs a punch.

    Minotaur Cannon
    A later Hyperion Systems weapon system design for punching through shields, armor, and hulls, it was designed as a orbital defence weapon system to defend planetary systems from pirates and possibly other invaders.

    Polaris Projector
    A mass-produced, reversed engineered, less powerful, but cheaper version of the Reality Disruptor from a [REDACTED] found to be drifting near a [REDACTED] in an old Domain-era system. When the Hyperion Systems [REDACTED], they saw the potential of such weapons to be used in the fight against piracy and the Luddic Path, and the potential for trade ships to defend themselves against smaller pirate crafts.

    Sagittarius MRM
    Built from the designs of the Harpoon missile after the collapse, this was designed to be the successor of the Harpoon MRM with the capability to deal EMP damage to knock shields out faster.

    Thank you to Harmful Mechanic, for me learning how to code a Starsector .jar file with his Dassault-Mikoyan Engineering source code. I referenced and quadruple-checked my codes from his codes. His source code is very helpful especially the amount of descriptions and comments in the code.

    You should really try blending the kitbashed parts for your sprites rather than just layering on top of each other. As it stands, all the sprites look very thrown together.

    I kitbashed it via photoshop, I still have the .PSD files, I should have blended it correctly. Most of the designs came from the space station parts. I just bashed it without blending, I will reblend it.

    Though the "circular" shaped parts, I really decided it to look like its something that is physically higher than the rest of the ship. And some parts of ships are in the sense, higher or lower (in 3D space). I will leave some of the "thrown together" parts. As the lore of the mod centers around as these are "old" Human Domain-era ships centuries ago. So they look like "weird" "ugly" ships "oudated" looking but still capable.

    It was actually kitbashed via photoshop. with a little sprinkle of blending options. Most of the parts came from Starsector's Space Station parts.

    The phase battle cruiser seems to phase, but never un-phase. My battle lasted like a half an hour with it dancing around completely invincible. :/ Did I do something wrong?

    That should have never happened. This mod does not have any .java or .jar or any programming into it. Manually control/set a waypoint for the phased battlecruiser in the combat view. Maybe the phase battlecruiser cannot find a safe place to unphase in that battle.

    Remember, the Orionis-class Phased Supercruiser is physically bigger and longer than the Doom-class Phase Cruiser. You will need to make a large space for it to unphase.

    v0.8

    - Confederacy will appear or not appear on Penelope's Star, and two of Dassault-Mikoyan's star systems: Kostroma and Nikolaev.

    Just a note; I had no idea about any of this, I wasn't asked, and all complaints about it should be directed to NinjaSiren. I'm not going to either hinder or accommodate stuff like this... unless someone else's failure to support it means I need to block it on my end to save myself the headache.

    Do not worry, there will be no bugs regarding it. I only used your empty planets. Marie-Galante and Odessa. You can openly check my source code, any bugs arises it will be blamed to me.

    I could just drop the probability of my faction to appear on your star systems.

    These are the current percentage probabilities that my faction will appear on star systems and planets:
    75% chance - Penelope's Star

    These percentages will only occur if you got DME installed:
    25% chance - Both Marie-Galante and Odessa
    25% chance - Only Marie-Galante
    25% chance - Only Odessa
    25% chance - No Dassault-Mikoyan star systems will have my faction in it.

    The percentage will only occur when you enabled this mod and start a new game with it.

    Nice, i always want to make Domain 2 : Electric Boogalo, overall i like this mod, but the ship design shoul be more bulkier and a lot of edge, just like Domain Drone, the design of Domain Ship is they're look like so cube? and mostly design unlike any other ships in persean sector today, when i see domain ship/drone i always thinking like "yeah. those ship sure belong to the domain."
