Makes me wanna play Bastard Sword of the Stars mod! 

I really like the "mid-game" intent for this mod...it's almost as a "dynamic player vs. environment" sort of addition to the sector!

Will def be in my next playthrough.

v0.35 released today - Save game compatible but some changes require a new game start - see changelog on OP or game files for details

I also added detailed instructions on how to make the faction playable on the forum OP

Enjoy!

Starting a new playthrough and giving this a shot. While I love my space dolphins first and foremost, shooting the hell out of Hivers is always very satisfying.

this mod is by far the one im most exited to see getting updated.
i get a rush of dopamine whenever i see patch notes for it.
this mod has the potential to become a game changer. where as you normally just slowly build up your wealth and fleet over time. with this mod you have a ticking timebomb. the longer you take making your fleet, the stronger the Hyver Swarm becomes.

That is so nice to hear. I wasn't sure what the reception would be when I mashed it together and it is so gratifyingly to hear other players enjoy the content. My current progress, a sneak peek if you will, is to add more Hiver graphics but I am not sure how to change the bar interactions and such. I am also working on Hiver specific stations but again, having an issue figuring that one out. At this stage that is just high concept so no promises :)

As always if you or anyone else has an idea or comment about the mod, I am open to suggestions.

"Space Dolphins"? Could you elaborate?

He is referring to the Liir which are a race of psionically gifted aquatic mammals in sword of the stars. They resemble Terran dolphins when younger then increasingly large whales afterwards.

Great idea for the mod, i always wanted something like this. They can work as an endgame crisis or a mid level threat.

Regarding the design of the ships, i have some fixed thoughts. The ships that resemble bugs but that are not actual bugs look great. But the ship that look exactly like bugs break immersion for me.
Like i can imagine a hive making bug like ships floating space arround but like bugs actually being the size of ship and looking like beetle doesn't fit.
