This SDK has a lot of documentation on how to mod Drox Operative, a few example mods, and a few tools (font/model related).
Drox Operative is a starship action RPG with warring alien races, fierce space battles, a dynamic, evolving galaxy, and co-op multiplayer.
Eons ago the Drox ruled the galaxy through their mighty Operatives. These elite starship captains were trained to accomplish the impossible at whatever cost necessary. Whether employing stealth or brute force, they were always deadly. Using these Operatives, the Drox built a starlane system for quick travel amongst the stars, colonized and conquered millions of planets, and ruled the galaxy with an iron grip for over 100,000 years. Eventually realizing their Operatives were a threat, they attempted to assassinate all of them. They failed. The following Galactic Civil War was devastating.
Thousands of years later, the Drox are extinct, but the secretive Drox Operative guild lives on. They have learned their lesson though: loyalty to any one race is foolish. They now work for whoever can pay. And pay they do! Empires might span hundreds of planets and thousands of ships, but when a critical task arises, they still turn to an Operative.
In the new space race, the major races are scouting, colonizing, and expanding, trying to take over the galaxy by diplomacy, technology, war, or any other means their scheming minds can contemplate.As a Drox Operative it's NOT your job to manage all of those annoying people, build thousands of buildings, play nice with your enemies, or balance the budget. It IS your job to pick the winning side and maybe even help them conquer the galaxy if you're being nice, more importantly though is to rake in as many credits as possible, well that and build the coolest, deadliest ship in the known universe. Not many screw with an Operative captaining a Dreadnaught!
We have released the 1.011 patch for Drox Operative. Since the last official patch, the patch patch balances things better and fixes a bunch of smaller things.
Here's all of the changes for patch 1.011.

When playing hardcore Drox Operative, having an attack fleet destroy your escape pod, computers, and thrusters is very, very bad. :)

I've lost 2 hardcore ships in a row at level 18: the first to Acanth mines and the 2nd to the boss Obliterate (who is aptly named).

@RyanFox Releasing actual numbers is always a gamble to how other companies will respond (deals lost or gained).

Every quarter I update our per game revenue stats. Would knowing the order of our games revenue be interesting to anyone?
