HW2 models bring back a lot of memories

but the faction seems overpowered compared to the rest.

also, are the capital ships supposed to engage enemies like strikecraft and corvettes?

Replicator Rebel testing results

1. For some reason, the game Minidumped after a couple hours even when I changed to recommended settings so this is kinda short.
2. The Aesir beams are blue instead of purple. I'd recommend double checking the Dagur Corvette as well.
3. Pirate Fighters don't register when their host is destroyed (i.e. "Has No Host!")
4. Are starting Frigate factories supposed to have a higher scrap value?

That's all I have for now. I may attempt another game but it seems things are in order for that faction. Good luck with the next release.

Love the Mod. Couple things, when I play Norlamin, the game always ends up crashing, replicator and trade alliance work fine. sometimes it takes 30 minutes, sometimes an hour or two, but even if I save often, it will just crash again at the same spot if I reload.

Also, some of the new titans have the exact same abilities as older ones, like the trade alliance loyalist being the same as the TEC rebels. Is that something that will change in future mods?

Have you ever thought of revamping the TEC, Advent and Vasari in your own image and putting it in your mod?

Hey Soase-Maelstrom! It's been a long time since last update. I have been wondering if you have a TBE on R9... Can you please give us a tentative update for R9? Thanks!

Norlamin Rebel Results

Two very serious bugs:
1. Jelmi's amplify Energy ability doesn't upgrade correctly. First it doesn't do it, then you look up 15 minutes later to see that it's done it.

2. When an enemy retreats it gives you the Another Victory! effects to range and damage even when that tech isn't researched.

3. On that note, Wrath also appears to be malfunctioning. Make sure the buff researches are properly aligned.

Lesser bugs/suggestions
4. Did you add module repair to the Skylark two? I don't remember that.
5. Defense platforms shouldn't have Zone of Force, it disrupts defense ability.
6. Another Victory! could use a different Icon.
7. Your version of the Black Hole disables abilities even though it doesn't say it.

The error with the research kinda slapped in the face on that one. The Jelmi was pretty strange too since I hadn't run into that issue on the last build. All in all the faction is performing nicely. It may be a couple weeks before I can finish with the Replicator Rebels.

I have a request if possible, so far i think this is the best mod for Rebellion, Sins of a galactic empire is also very good but its a total conversion so i cant place them in the same basket.

The Vasari loyal Titan, the one that can devourer entire fleets with its MAW ability, my requests are about this ship and this ship only.

1, when this ship bombard a planet, there is a vasari capital ship that has an ability to drain the planet, is it possible to give the draining animation to the titan instead of the regular laser? This would give a "Unicron feel" like the ship is devouring planets.

Second request would be to give it the ability to colonize planets, to keep in the devourer of worlds idea, you "drain the planet", then colonize it to strip it to the core.

I dont know if your even willing to do so but if other members of the community would like this, maybe just do a small "patch" to add this into the game.

Let me know what the team think about this idea.
