From: Ol' Blighty
The mod started off as a replacer for Zenox ships. If you look at the original Zenox shipset it seems like perhaps the work wasn't originally finished or something, those odd low detail starfish things. Then after that it became the idea to give one shipset per race, because in the original there were only 11 shipsets between the 22 races and only 9 between the 20 playable races. Then I just carried on and started to replace everything because I enjoyed working on the ships.
I used the original artwork to make all the new ships I was making. which meant it was fine for Matrix to use them because no non-Matrix resources were used. The download count of the mod itself, before it was removed from the site hosting it, was almost caught up with the "Buy Return of the Shakturi" redirect count on the forum! Some new things were added for the Legends release which were not included in the original mod such as the minor shipsets, another entirely new Zenox and Dhayut set to replace the ones in the mod, the Shakturi and Ancient Guardians sets, the Legendary Pirates.
Although it was originally agreed, I would like to point out that in the end no money actually changed hands and I'm fine with that! Happy just to help and be included, cheers!
