...  ???

Uh.... does this replace the normal Diktat, is it entirely new "faction", or is it a sub-faction of the Diktat?

Unfortunately this mod overrides the regular Diktat. Consider it Andrada deciding to try out this whole "Banana Republic" thing out instead of just a regular Military Dictatorship.

Or I guess "Lobster Republic in this case.

... this is amazing. I love how the silhouette teaser you posted has a watermark of Andrada in sunglasses.

There are no work camps on Cruor.

A quick update which includes new art for the Notos NS-15000 and the Crius CR-1500 and the Antimatter Beam Blaster Array and the Antimatter Destabilizer. Thanks Nia!
Get the update here!
Update should be save compatible with v1.7.

Spoiler
- Updated Hardpoints on ships to ensure they all have a point 5 arc.
- Updated sprites for the Crius CR-1500 and Notos NS-15000 and the Antimatter Beam Blaster Array and the Antimatter Destabilizer (Thanks Nia!)
- Due to updated sprites, there are 2 less mounts for the Crius CR-1500 and 1 less mount of the Notos NS-15000. Current ships should still be compatible but will be phased out for the next major update.

I just wanted to say that I absolutely adore this mod. The Diktat has always been the neglected child of Starsector, lacking charm, identity and any kind of presence in the universe, as the devs never seemed quite sure how to push this whole "banana republic" angle. Which is where this mod comes into the picture.

Even with all its wackiness and memes, Sindrian Fuel has more personality than the Diktat ever had, and is of such high quality that I have no problems using it in an otherwise serious playthrough. It also helps that aside from the insanity of using tankers as combat ships, the faction doesn't actually feels that out-of-place in this universe. When it comes down to it, aside from their general goofiness and their weird obsession with antimatter fuel, Andrada and his gang are not that different from Tri-Tachyon. They also don't seem to like playing god quite as much (at least until they decide to strap thrusters on Sindria itself and take the entire planet for a ride).
