: )

It's not a super exciting update, but it should take care of some stuff that was rushed out when I was getting all the 0.8 update stuff out last year.

I have been working on some new ships and weapons when I can find the time to do so. Release when? Depends on some s t u f f, but things mainly need to be playtested and polished, which ironically is what takes the longest time to do. Just letting you know the mod is more undead than strictly dead. :V

Hmm, the first one has a Scalaron Flux Core, meaning it's likely to have some ability related to it. It's also considerably bulkier than a Desdinova, and very squat, so it'd be moderately surprising if it's a fast attack ship, taking in note that I think I have spotted some manoeuvring thrusters.

The 2nd one is far more built to take damage it seems, from the looks of it. In fact, thinking about it now, this looks like a new Cruiser/Capital developed for defensive roles or to bolster fleets. The other thing to note are the lack of carrier ports, meaning these are dedicated combat ships.

Still loves purple. Still not skilled enough to make a mod that doesn't get that one damn error.

This mod is as polished and content rich as it gets, I don't know what you might add to it. Granted there was that thing you talked about years ago but it seemed a lot of hassle to actually do.

As for the ships, the second one looks like a Dominator had sex with a Knight, I reckon it will be a hold the line brick.

One's a brick, as in, a true, dedicated heavy cruiser brick, but with a few nasty surprises. The other is a light destroyer that has some fancy tech, but tones it down a little compared to the other exotic ships. I'm still workin out the details anyway.

Throwing in some new modular weapons as well, a new small ballistic and large energy.

Sprites:





Imagine Rudy and Kreiger from the show Archer both giving their best "thank you" in chorus.  A few here and there is okay, but half of a random pirate fleet being Robberflies is more obnoxious than Templar gank fleets, at least I can run from Templars.

Honestly it's kind of impressive what a giant pain in the ass Robberflies are. Got to the point where I'd have a dedicated bugzapper ship with lasers to get them to *** off in the early game.

yay new content! the first looks a bit too freaky for my taste, but i love the brick! :]

and i agree on Robberflies.. compared to other shieldless ships, they are amazing as staying alive and being a pain. ^^

At least they stay true to the "fly" bit of their name~  ;)

Can't wait for the new update!!  ;D

Any plans to add a salvage / tug vessel at all?

& drones for those of us that don't like to lose crew!?  ;)

& a mod-dreadnaught for IBB!!??  ;D

Have seen 1 or 2 cool dreadnaught vessel's out there ( http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=13532.0 ), Blackrock's answer would surely be godly!!1  ;D

Are the Stenos' Neutrocyte drones supposed to be manned? Seems a bit weird, with them being flagged as drones and all.

Updating for "barebones compatibility" is not a priority right now. I'd rather wait for the issues with getting mod content to interact with all the systems in 0.9 to be ironed out first, as well as finish the new content I have been tinkering with while waiting for 0.9.

Nice catch! Fixed it.

Do we have an ETA for this excellent mod? I am actually holding back playing 0.9 alot since this is probably my best faction  ;)
