I remade all the imperials weapons and made some proper broadside variants. While it isn't perfect, it's still much better than the old ones.






And here, the Emperor, Retribution and Mars class pretty much done. On the right, a Retribution fitted with weapons, much better no?



Obviously still a lot work to do but at (long) least a step in the right direction!

However silent, you want the launch bays to be weapons? I'm not sure to understand.

Yeah, its a easy way to have fighters in the battle without having them as independent wings, but as "weapons" instead.

Great job on the weapons btw, i feel the ships are a little blurry on some parts but alot better compared to the default ones.

Might take sometime before it gets a release, as for Exelerin, its not vanilla balanced and a total conversion, making it almost impossible for it.

Finally finished (most of) the cruiser family!

Spoiler
[close]

From right to left:

Mars, Overlord, Lunar, Tyrant, Dominator, Gothic, Dictator.

Surprisingly i'm having some trouble doing destroyers and frigates. The original Gothic ship is the only source of kitbash i have and it's not ideal for doing small ships. I'll try to see what can i do. Don't be surprised though is they'll feel somewhat... Different.

For the total conversion, i said it before and i say it again, i'm not very fond of this idea. Players rarely plays total conversion mods and if they do, the first they are going to ask will be to make it Exerelin compatible or something like that.

So if you want it to be a total conversion in the end, okay. But at least, make the ships stats similar to Starsector Vanilla, for the people who will want to use it with other mods.

1 - Look awesome, send me the files over dropbox if possible
2 - I am thinking of making a 'Factions mod' and a 'TC Mod', pretty much one were the whole game is changed, the other the ships and factions can be implemented seperatly...maybe even complete faction mods? (Imperium Of Man vs everything else in Excerlein or Tyranids ect)???

Thoughts?

Seems like it can be very difficult to balance into vanilla standards tho and the amount of faction besides the Imperium of Men, it should be fine if its only the Imperium, but once the other factions come out, it will need to be  set as 2 different mods.

Yes something like that. An alternate download link for a Vanilla compatible Imperium faction and the other for the BFG total conversion. Shouldn't be that difficult to do with other races. They are relatively similar to the IN in some way.

BTW, i managed to finish the smaller ships.

Technically there are more imperial ships to do. However ships like the Oberon or the Vengeance are a rare sight in the Imperium and are usually only present in some specifics battlefleets. So yeah, they are "minor" ships, and i'm not even talking about civilians ones. I'll make them of course! But for now, only the standard Imperial Navy ships are there and they should be enough to get the faction started.

Pro tip: you really need to put a roster of some sort on your original post, and use one spoiler tag at most. I don't think I've seen but a fraction of your sprites, and for me the decision to sit down and play a mod is based on the contents of the mod's first page. It's probably the same for a lot of folks.

That said, I really like these from your most recent batches. Keep 'em comin'.

EDIT: This Paragon hack-job is amazing work, it's like a completely different beast:

Pelhamds will properly update the OP when he'll release a playable version. For now everything is still a work in progress and even the download link is for a very early WIP not even updated for 0.61, that's why we didn't bothered much with the presentation.

So yeah, everything will be much nicer in the near (i hope) future.

And thanks for the Paragon (that was the only capital ship i had under my hands at the moment, no free advertising i swear!).
