The new Locust feels like a weird fusion of the Lasher and the Wolf. I like it for what it is now, but is there any chance there will be a ship with the old Spark Drive. It was pretty cool, and nice for dodging enemy projectiles/missiles (if a bit annoying to fight against).

Not sure if your mod of SS+ but whenever I take a commission with Blackrock I keep getting yelled at for not being hostile to "Knights of Ludd". I'm hostile to both displayed Ludd factions (church and path) so I'm not sure where I'm going wrong here.  Will post in SS+ as well.
It is a bug with Nexe. Look there for help

Don't have Nexe installed, will check to see if fix still relevant.

I see something about commenting out lines of code, but as I don't have Nexerline installed I'm not sure how that'll help. I have BRDY, Interstellar Imperium, LazyLib, MusicLib, Neutrion, ShaderLib, and SS+ installed.

Hmm yeah, the Eschaton wasn't supposed to have such a high burnspeed. Going to fix that in the next update, and do some more combat testing.
:]
Hehe, was wondering if some people would find it jarring compared to the softer old sfx (which has been in there since 2013 after all)
i like the new ones, but i think i still liked the old ones more.

do you have the latest (3rd) vanilla hotfix installed? i think there was something about the Knights of Ludd in the notes.

While you're changing things, Corvus mode compatibility for Nexerelin (see the thread OP for mod plugin details) would be nice.

cant tell which mod is causing it if any but BDY patrols keep chasing me saying i dont have my transponder on when i do

Hey Cycerin- do I still have your permission to post my edit of your mod here? (It now includes one kitbash of your old Stormcrow sprite into a new ship that looks like this:







)

I just wanted to check, as I don't know if you would consider that sprite up to your stringent quality control standards. I would not want to publish a derivative work without your permission.

For those interested in some old sprites, two of these sprites are old ones Cycerin never used, and one is a kitbash:

I might downsize it as well, seems to have a few artifacts on the edges that I don't particularly like.

in the same post where you're posting it, after posting about this several times prior, rather than PMing me first. Strikes me as a kind of pointless gesture

You can't just turning off and then turning back on transponders right under their eyes. Of course they would tell you to turn on transponders at all times.

when using commision from BDY i keep losing points for not being hostile with knights of ludd is this because BDY still has them on their list even tho their not in the game anymore? or because the base game still has it in the code even if they dont exist? cant keep them capped out at 100 because of this

That is very strange, I love every aspect of this faction, but there is only one thing why I really play as member of it in Nexerelin.... its music...

Spoiler
offtopick: BRDY - have no idea why it reminded me, but if you like anime, watch Birdy the Mighty

Blackrock has my favorite music of any of the mods I've used. At least if it hasn't changed since the 0.65 version.

That's not exactly what I meant, I intended to get your permission to post the actual ship with the others in a playable format.

Next time I will PM you first with the sprite.

You can go ahead and post it, I just don't see the point in being unsure about it when I already told you I was fine with the whole thing last time.

when using commision from BDY i keep losing points for not being hostile with knights of ludd is this because BDY still has them on their list even tho their not in the game anymore? or because the base game still has it in the code even if they dont exist? cant keep them capped out at 100 because of this

This is a bug with the core game. I believe SS+ fixes it.

Ahh, thanks. That means a lot to me.

On a different note, anyone tried the Morpheus yet?

I had to cheat it in (removed 400k from my bank while I did it to be a little fair) because I couldn't find one and really wanted to try it out. Upgraded from a Desdinova.

Well, what can I say, the ship delivers. Bounties that I had a lot of trouble with the Desd are now much, much easier. Reminds me of the earlier days of the Imaginos. It is also surprisingly tough, I got in situations that I was sure I was going to end up dead but they didn't even take half the hull, I guess the Nano armor really is doing wonders.

I'm running it with SO too, not sure if it is wise but it is how I'm running pretty much every ship that isn't a cruiser. The slots are used up by two AM Blasters on the front and two missile mounts on the far sides (Harpoons at the moment, but will upgrade to Clarents since I'm running Templars).

I don't use the laser a lot though. I mean, it's good, but the homing lasers are so effective that I can take targets from a distance without risking myself (though the 50% resistance is very helpful). I even installed that prism system to increase the range of the beam but I still use it sparingly.

I also got it at a high level already (~40) so I'm unsure how it fares at lower levels, but then again it will always take some good time to find this ship.

Overall the ship delivers in what I've come to expect from BRDY: a fun and different playstyle.
