I remember when you first started on this mod. Its been a long time, and quite a leap in quality since that time. Great to see you still working on it. :)

All is well here in Oz ...

Yes, I have been working for some time on the mod ... recently slowing down. I want to finish it with a reasonable high quality (PS: I consider the Maelstrom mod for Diplomacy, Entrenchment and Original Sins finished). Anticipating another 2 release of Maelstrom to bring it up to 'spec'.

It could be worse ... but I don't now how!
Fortunately, relative to the EU and US, the economy is not too bad ... irrespective of the complaints of some.

Hey, love the mod!! Is it just me or is the Pirate faction buggy? Its showing the same tooltips for the Norlamin race:)

The Pirate race is a preview ... with most of the art work done, and with 'hooks' for the rest

Ah alright!:) I just kinda ran headlong into the mod without reading much!:) Its friggin awesome:) I played a full game with the Replicator Rebels and it was pretty good:) If i may ask?
Is the lack of incoming ship sensing research for the Replicator Rebels by design? Or am i just being thickheaded and cant find it:P

The Replicators have a lot of 'good stuff' ... they can't have everything ... yes I intentionally left out the "phase space sensing"

My reasoning behind this is "oh look, more meat for the grinder" *starts multiplying*

Me and my friends keep trying to play together but when we start the game we get desynced and it comes up saying there is a tick error between us. How do I fix this?

General things to try
1. make sure all players have sins patched to the latest release
2. make sure all players have the same version of maelstrom
3. make sure all players are playing at x1 speed
4. I have heard autosave can cause problems

I have not tested MP for this release and but will test it on the next release. The last problem I had with MP was a bug in the checksum calculations ... i.e bug with the game and not the mod ... so MP bugs can be subtle and time consuming to trace.
