The Ships (not all)
Spoiler
[close]

The Weapons (not all)
Spoiler
[close]

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.

Not sure why, they show up on my end just fine. Thats odd.

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

Re: [0.9.1a] The Exalted (V1.1) not dead! new update out in a month or so.
« Reply #12 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


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

Hey man are you still working on the mod?
I know it might not be very rewarding but you are actively providing people some enjoyment in this trying times.
