Wow Haree, I found my soul mate
As far as I can see almost anyone plays as tec or advent, only stubborn me favors the vasari


I don't even know what you guys are talking about, but that flying egg looks more like it should be a carrier and not a cap ship.

I just looooove the mobility of the Vasari, them phase gates rock.


Yup, Vasari are not only mobile but also quite powerful in fights against other races. I personally like Advent the most but even with thier superrior figthers and bombers it's real hard to withstand Vasari- especially in prolonged fights. It may be just my being noob at SoSE, but each time I attack Vasari fleet without using almost twice the amount of the ships they have, I end up loosing half my fleet and barely escaping with the capitals.

It's not that we are noobs per se but the AI makes better use of abilities than us....even when I design for a more balanced brute force / support fleet I end up with more brute force. I'll play with the abilities more and learn to trust the auto cast.
Hope that clarifies the issue a bit, Shark

@Kalthaniell,

It would be practical. So I had Kalthaniell's Shipyards and Diverse Worlds in the same folder and could switch easily. I am not in a hurry but as soon as your ship sets, etc. are complete, it would cool to have them together.

OOoh, you mean that it's all in one folder with each file in an appropriate subfolder. As in a mod folder. So if you unpack it in your Customization folder it will function as a new mod. I always thought of my uploads as a separate addons rather than a complete mod Amin. I might do a mod latter on, with races pics matching appropriate shipsets and races and biases txt files, but only if I will have a complete set of 19 races. There is another problem with this idea - the planets ,weapons and pirate addons replace the original DW files ( not sth everybody want a mod to do in this game). I will certainly include everything in one upload when I have a complete mod, but for now I'll leave it as it is.
Thx for the idea though.

Just out of interest, is your ship mod still ongoing or did you abandon the project?

The ships look sensational, but I am somehow reluctant to install them "incomplete", with only part of the races having
the new designs and part the old ones.

For the last weeks my attention shifted to a different projects, but I still am planning on making new ships for this thread. I do not know when exactly will that be, but probably some time after the new expansion is out. It is not a complete mod, but I think it would work best when mixed with other custom stuff.

My first post on the forum, firstly great work on these ships they look awesome!

A question though, how do I install and use them and can I use them all i.e. different ships for different races?

Secondly I've only just been through the tutorials and not even played the game yet, should I play the game with default ships first or jump straight in with this mod?

Hi Bleek and welcome to the forum, each mod has instructions in the first post. Basically, you just need to copy the content in the customization folder and then choose the theme when you enter in the game (you'll know when). Yes, you can use different ships with different races
As for the last question it's up to you but even if this mod is awesome I would still recomend trying the game as it is at first to see it as Elliot designed it....at least for a short while

Just saw your second post, it's indeed a shame the game does not have more coverage but you're not late by any means....the best is yet to come so have tons of fun.

The instructions are that simple I completely missed them!

Agreed with playing the game 'vanilla' first, I'm doing so now.

The new expansion sounds interesting and will hopefully refine the game even more than the previous release.

Just a small bump for delivering the sensational weapons mod.
Looks so much better than stock!

LOL

I like these much better then stock myself. Actually, I am already working in secret on making a whole new set of weapons effects to replace the legend's vanillia as soon as I get it. I only wish I had a better idea about how the beam weapons work. It's probably going to use a simple graphic of a vertical line that will be stretched from ship one to shib two. Similar method is already used for the planet destroyer laser sprite.

Superb stuff, i'm looking forwards to trying these out. Are they designed to replace the existing 'familysets' or can they be added in so i'll have more than just the 11 sets of ship images that vanilla uses?

Dude love your stuff, everyone one of the modders who have added their own custom work are leaps and bounds beyond stuff I have done. I just wish I had the time to follow suit between a family and 6 classes.

Yeah, you are a bit busy...
I am happy to combine forces with your to make an SW mod... but I take a little of this and a little of that for my stuff...
