Thanks Sirian! That will save me a lot of work. Now I don't want to bite off more than i can chew to begin with. So atm, the plan is to have 4 factions per race.
Amarr: Khanid, Ni-Kunni, True Amarr, and Blood Raiders
Caldari: Achura, Civier, Deteis, and Guristas
Gallente: Jin-Mei, Mannar, Ethnic Gallente, and Serpentis
Minmatar: Brutor, Sebiestor, Vherokior, and Angel Cartel
Now the reason I want to make the pirate factions from eve an empire, is because I want to play them as an empire myself, and I want to make the Capsuleers as the Pirates of Distant Worlds. I was planning on getting a list of the corps and alliances in eve and putting them in as the pirates in the mod. Now nothing is set in stone atm, and I'll add more factions later, but atm this is my plan.
Any feedback or other ideas would be appreciated.
