Can you add a visual encyclopedia in the game where we can see the ships more closely and hear and read about them(Something like the ME codex and yes I know there is a wiki for DOV)

once we have $500,000 to license the engine, yes. in the meantime the unit descriptions on the build screen have both a brief description and their armaments (where the old "good against strike craft etc" crap went) and the rest will be in the manual.

edit: also you can see the ships more closely by using the scroll wheel

That's interesting. All the ships represented have been seen ingame, minus the Odessa-Class and the Yeremenko-Class.

Is this the full ship list or will there be others, like carriers, Dreadnoughts and other types of destroyer?

It's not the final shiplist. There's a few others we won't announce till we got balancing and such down.

The quality of an image is not only decided by the tool used, but also by the artist using them.

That aside, It's true that some other mods could take a page or two out ouf DoVs book when it comes to menu art. I'm a Star Trek fan, but I can't look at most of the Trek themed mods here since many of them seem to think using the ugly computer overlays from Star Trek everywhere possible automatically makes their mod better T_T.

I'm a big fan of Star Trek and this pains me too. Too many mods just try to shove as much **** from the show without trying to make it actually function well. What looks nice on camera is very different from what functions well as a UI.

Haha, I do agree that someone will try to copy this. However, I think you may have gone a bit far in insulting a large portion of the sins modding community for not being as fortunate as yourself (in response to the Photoshop comment) I am usually a huge fan of you and Swiss Knights sarcasm, but I just feel that this was uncalled for. I use GIMP, and it can be every bit as effective as Photoshop with the right tools, plugins, and an experienced user.

Sorry, Hydrocarbon's brother got a hold of his account and posted that mean comment.

Having gone through the same thing recently I'm sure you can understand.

SwissKnight: Wow, here I am being completely polite and legit, yet you can only reply like an 12 year old butthurt child. Very mature.

hydrocarbon: I might have confused how much Photoshop costs. I thought it was like $200, oops.

Love the Light Shipyard icon. ;)

I can't wait for the Odessa to be revealed, and then the Rodina. How much bigger, roughly, is the Rodina going to be than the Odessa, given the Odessa is, very roughly, three times bigger than the Retivvy?

Judging from the "Soviet Big 7" Image, the Retivvy is about 1 km long. From what I see, the Odessa is about 2.5 km long.

Well, I did say "very roughly", but I was asking for a Rodina to Odessa comparison. Which pretty much only the devs could give an answer to.

Description

When you click on units these things show up.

The astute among you will notice the little ratings next to each ship outline. These represent how well the unit or station preforms in combat against other ships and stations. Just another example of how clever everybody over here is.

Also no, this is not ingame, I couldn’t figure out how to combine a bunch of screenshots of these things properly without it looking like shit. So I instead did a cunning gradient showing how it looks ingame on the bottom, and some other examples up top.

I feel like I’m coming across as kinda crass or defensive. I dunno, I’ve been sick these past couple days and I never know what the hell to write for these things. Not that anything I could ever say would prevent people from asking when you’re gonna see a German ship.

Do you know what it’s like working on these things? It’s like running a literal shipyard, we have these digital hulks slowly being completed, my hard drive is indistinguishable from Norfolk right now. Honest to god we are currently literally going through the process of installing engines on a ship that will remain nameless.

I should start a blog.
