I can help out a bit, too, after I finish coding that Flak Batteries ability SotP wants.

You know, you have forums now to start putting up posts about these sorts of things. ;)

There was that BFG mod for Entrenchment that managed to get a mostly-complete Imperial Navy done. They've all disappeared though.

Best of luck getting this off the ground. I hope you can find proper models for your planned ship list, which is always the toughest part of a mod.

I hope so since I love the gameplay additions of Project Nevada like bullet time, sprint, and mobile reticle. I don't know about the PN modules but with this setting I won't need PN's Cybernetics module to get augs. I definitely asked for this. :P

The same. Soase-maelstrom is shooting for a full lineup of capital ships, so probably.

A Pitbull is a two-person jeep with minimal armor plating. A Mammoth has a crew of two gunners minimum (one for missiles, one for main cannons), a driver, and a commander (most likely set up), backed by massive amounts of armor plating and the engine to carry all that weight. If you can't fit the two gunners, commander, armor, weapons, and autoloaders for the weapon systems into the turret, you need to make it bigger.

It is very easy to make a new race in Sins. All you need to do is give them their own Player<Race>.entity file and they're their own race. Just copy/paste the TEC one you're using, re-name it to PlayerDMO.entity and you've got your own separate race.

From all the bugs I'm getting on start up, it looks like you didn't even try to run your mod with Rebellion's developer .exe file. I'm not going to bother posting any more bug reports until you do so.

I ran your mod through Rebellion's developer .exe file and it looks like your StarBasePirate.entity file is broken, leading to crashes on mod load.

Yes, definitely. Sins of a Galactic Empire shrunk everything down to fit their supercapitals (Titans) in properly and it works out very well, especially since there's far less crowding when ships attempt to phase jump.

Since I can't edit, this would be a great heavy tank with a powerful long-ranged Gauss cannon and an array of short-ranged missiles.

I don't think you can actually remove buffs from ships. You can add additional buffs but you can't actually remove them using another ability. What I would do is have weapons fire on ships do temporary, stacking debuffs to ship stats but have them go away after a while to represent the crews re-routing systems around damaged sections of the vessel and effecting temporary repairs to damaged systems.

I prefer the armor plating idea, but you'll have to be careful with naming since UI information is global, so unless you're doing a total conversion the Vasari, Advent, and TEC will all start using C-bills and armor instead of credits and shields if you don't take care with modifying English.str.

You misspelled the "New Syrtis" class of carrier.

Aside from that nitpick, this mod looks like it is progressing well. Good luck!

SpardaSon21 Jul 21 2012, 11:46pm replied:

You're welcome.

You're still going to have to decide what to do about inter-star phase jumps since DropShips definitely can't do that, and that's controlled by a research boolean, so either it isn't researched and no ships can jump or it is researched and all ships can jump. There's no middle ground. First thing that came to my mind is a completely ******** research about tiny K-F engines hotloaded from fusion reactors that allow DropShips to do K-F jumps, but like I said that's a ******** research with no grounding in BT science so you probably want something better.

SpardaSon21 Jul 21 2012, 10:13pm says:

One thing you guys might want to think about with regards to K-F jumps and scale is that most Sins maps only take place in a single solar system. It may be an extremely crowded solar system, but all the celestial objects in your average Sins map are in the orbit of the same, single star, and your average DropShip doesn't have issues with interplanetary transits.

Oh, and I'm definitely tracking this.

You should consider moving to Rebellion when it is finally released since Rebellion bumped the weapon limit for ships and structures from three to five, plus there are some additional WeaponClassTypes added such as Flak, Railgun, PointDefenseLaser, PulseWave, and PhaseCannon that you can re-name to get the desired effect. Having an extra two weapons per ship would give you a little more leeway when it comes to proper loadouts, especially since fighters can now have two primaries and three secondaries.

SpardaSon21 Apr 23 2012, 8:51pm says:

A little word of warning: shielding grants an always-active damage reduction, over 60% when focus-fired upon by a fleet and 15% when under light fire, so ships without shields need a ton of armor and HP in order to have equivalent survivability when under heavy fire.

Also, since the DMO appears to have a lot of special buffs, you're going to have to write a lot of abilities, and you may run into the 5-ability-per-ship limit a few times.

Best of luck with this mod, and I hope you get everything working.

Have you changed the particle and sound effects for weapons so they're no longer using effects suited for the standard weapons in Sins, but instead are suited for the weapons found in Mass Effect?

Blue, like all the other tesla weaponry in fiction. Green tesla weapons look too much like standard Necron gauss weapons.

Vader111, there was a recent re-release of Blue Planet 2 with optimized ships. You should probably check that out, especially since Blue Planet is a greatly superior mod to Dawn of Sol.

Also, there's no way fleets in this mod should be a large as fleets in stock Sins (if fleets have 25 Deimos corvettes and 40 Fenris and Leviathan cruisers in them something is wrong), so you can get away with higher poly counts than if you were using standard Sins-sized fleets.
