Are there more recent links to pictures of the Blackrock ships?  All the images have been blocked by Photobucket talking about 3rd party posting.  Even visiting the links directly don't show the ship, but instead the same image complaining about 3rd party posting.
you can always just download the mod, and look at the actual sprites in the \Blackrock Drive Yards\graphics\BR\ships. i imagine Cycerin will update the OP with new links once we sees they're down.

Just putting it out there, that kind of defeats the purpose of the forum thread, who's ultimate goal should surely be to lure players in and convince them to try the mod. The images are an advertisement. (Also there are people like me who don't download every mod they see, but still enjoy looking at mod threads and gawking at beautiful sprites *cough cough SHADOWYARDS cough* ...)

I haven't downloaded lots of mods.  :-[ Doesn't mean I don't plan to use them in future. But at present I've been spending most of my Starsector time making mod content rather than playing mod content. Working full time (among other things) doesn't leave a lot of time for both sadly...

right, i didn't mean there shouldn't be proper pics in the thread. just that since the ones that are there seem to be currently broken, you can check them in the files if you're interested (and you don't even need to install the mod to look at its sprites), until Cycerin gets around to fixing it.

cycerin's computer set up died, so it'll take a while before he can do modding stuff.

I hoped it would be clear, but apparently not enough.
I was joking, by presenting attention-focus on anything else than whole subject of sprites ;-) =P

Remember that periods to...its cyclical for creative persons with passion - but its important to recognize when making mod or even gaming transfers from fun in itself to tedious task and kinda "another work". Burn-up or slow-down can appear or dissapear in an instant depending on inspiration gauge, that every one need to recharge from time to time.

What i mean is...making food might fill your appetite...but it won't fill your belly.
Or...just go and blow some *** up! =P

Hehe, that's alright @OzarMidrashim, I had a feeling you were joking. ;) Just wanted to make my position clear.

I definitely don't want to be burning out on Starsector just yet, so working is actually beneficial because (in my workplace at least) I have a decent amount of time to think about stuff and come up with random new concepts.

It's because he was hosting the master version file in a public folder on Dropbox, but they dropped support for those folders a few months ago. He'll have to move the file to another site like GitHub or Bitbucket.

If/when you fix this, Cyc, you may also want to add this line to your .version file to allow opening the update thread from within Starsector:

I'm not sure what the problem is, but my AI-controlled Knight cruisers seem to refuse to use the Rage SRM Pod. All it'll do is cycle between the two missile pods without firing them while plinking away with its guns, even against overloaded or shieldless ships. I don't have this problem if I give it any other missile for its medium slot, and changing pilot AI doesn't seem to help either.

Heh, didn't notice it last time I was playing with this mod but 'Expensive to field' should also probably be amongst the descriptors for this faction.
Many of the frigates, while good, cost as-much-as or more-than a destroyer to deploy in battle. Weevils & silverfish, 20 supplies/deployment with repairs taking 4 days. Mantis is !30! & 5 days. For comparison most frigates are 5-15, destroyers 15-25, cruisers 60-80, and rarely does it take more than 3 days to recover.
These frigs are great in combat so you'll be inclined to use them, but man do they chomp down on the winnings if you do.


Also how come it's gotten so quiet in here?

you're confusing the Combat Readiness deployment cost with the supply deployment cost. the CR DP cost reduces the ship's current CR by the shown percentage, so a higher cost means the ship can fight fewer battles before running into malfunction issues. how many supplies it costs to recover that percentage of CR is an independent value, even though a related one.

that said, many of BRDY's ships are still on the expensive side in supply costs as well, just not by a large amount -- aside from Desdinova, Imaginos, and Morpheus. these 3 are much more expensive because they are also much more powerful than most ships of their size class, similar to vanilla Hyperion.


as for why there isn't much talk going on in this thread lately, i imagine it's because 1) the mod hasn't had any updates or news in a while, and 2) most people who feel like chatting about custom ship loadouts, balance, etc do so in the discord chat, where they usually get a quick response to whatever they wanna share or ask.

Well that's the thing- they have the slightly-higher CR DP costs but they ALSO have low CR/day recovery speeds. So the supply/day recovery cost runs twice as long & expense-wise puts them a tier-higher.

Huh, that might just be a discord I actually use, thanks for pointing it out!
