Any rumors of Lion's Guard operations to destabilize other markets to make way for a Sindrian Fuel franchise are completely unsubstantiated, and clearly they come from jealous rivals intending to tarnish the company's pristine public image.

Phillip Andrada Gas Station Manager: Now with more planet descriptions and Nexerelin compatibility with conquered worlds.

Was a pleasure to proofread for this work of art

Your friendly local Hegemony naval officer and the Persean Sector's #1 gunrunner to the Luddic Path!

Working here and there on a mod that adds a faction known as the Hegemony Privateer Corps -- a disparate faction of Hegemony-aligned privateers and pirates that actively raid other factions as hostilities break out. It's not going to be particularly good at first and it's not going to come out anytime soon, but I will get it out at some point!

Any and all Antimatter Fuel production facilities that are currently not under the oversight of the Sindrian Fuel Company™ are simply waiting to be bought out in the future.

Oh yeah, we're still doing this. Still ruining the Diktat with deep fried antimatter fuel and lobster memes. Now at v1.3!

Dependable. Tough. Reliable. Built to last. The Dram D-150 is the pinnacle of the hard work the Sindrian Fuel Company has put into providing the best for its fuel fleet. With more torque, more power, and a damper field capable of withstanding anything some opportunistic outlaw might throw your way, this Dram is a tough nut to crack. Whether you’re an entrepreneurial captain looking to supply the core worlds with Sindrian brand Antimatter fuel or out solar diving in the outer reaches of the sector, it’ll get you where you need to go. The Dram D-150. It can handle anything. Get yours at your local Sindrian Fuel Company Franchise Station today.

Oh it'll be all fine! After all, this is not the Sindrian Diktat. This is the Sindrian Fuel Company! Totally different things. Promise!

But speaking of things, there may in fact be some things on the docket for the 2nd wave of Sindrian Fuel military tankers. Something with a nice big gun to go with it.

Haha!

Though the mod essentially is a faction overhaul of sorts.  Not a split like Hegemony + Iron Shell

Looking forward to what's coming next

So there's definitely gonna be more ships coming soon. How soon? Not too sure. But have a nice sneak peek at what's coming. But I do gotta say, I have to thank GMan from the Discord server for really helping me out to assemble these. Really good on them! But is this all the ships? Maybe. Though I do hopefully will have at least one more ship added to this group before I plan on releasing v1.5.

"As much as all the lobster you can eat is delicious, I could really go for something else. You can only eat so much lobster before you start getting mildly sick of it. Of course, don't tell Balashi, or he might end up having a heart attack. Or maybe you should. Would at least shut him up for a day or two." - Head Researcher Yunris Kween on Volturnian Lobsters.

After a long time of waiting, of figuring things out and trying to understand how this mod spiraled out of control, I bring you... v1.5 of PAGSM! We've got a JAR now, and thus the sky is the limit!

Unfortunately, this means now that PAGSM is NO LONGER SAVE GAME COMPATIBLE. Please start a new save to experience the new update in its fullest.

Thank you again, everyone, who has been following this. I really question just how far this mod has come. Thanks for all your continued support!
