The reapers have returned from dark space. With Earth under attack and the mass relays in a state of chaos from refugees and the councils fleet engaging reaper forces the galaxy is a mess. The outcome is unknown, the warfare is devastating. The galaxy will never be the same.

A simple update regarding The Dawn of the Reapers mod.

Posted by on

It has been almost a month since the inception of this mod. I started with nothing but a good idea, and some experience modeling. Since then though this mod has blown up, you guys seem to love Mass Effect. Its a good thing, keeps me motivated and moving. That brings me to my main point, for the sake of focusing i have worked tirelessly on the Citadel Council. I want to get an alpha out as soon as possible to reward you folks for your constant support, but to my work. The pictures below are of the Citadel Council Fleet and its Stations.

Citadel Council Fleet
The Citadel Council Fleet

Comprised of ships that are seen in Biowares Mass Effect 1 & 2, and Ships based off of Concept art released by Bioware, and also a few i came up with myself.

Citadel Council Stations
The Citadel Council Stations

Stations within The Citadel Council are from all races within in it. Salarian research as well as Asari civilian research. Turian shipyards and Systems Alliance Starbases. All of which come together quite nicely.

You have done a job well done considering you only started a month ago i think that i speak for all of the mass effect fans who have been following this mod when i say "keep this mod going"

You're right with that assumption. Keep it going!

You've done fantastic work in such a short space, can't wait to see what comes next.

the Cerberus station is part of the Council stations?

Its not specifically a Cerberus starbase, with almost every sci fi universe races have carbon copy starbase designs, just look at star trek.

That is true about star trek take for example "Spacedock" that appears in the Search for Spock or "Regula One" in the Wraith of Khan both of these space station or starbases get used in one form or another during the tv series.

I asked this in one of the images, but it's probably more appropriate here.

Have you given a thought to ship roles yet?

At a minimum you will need to designate which ships performs the Scout and colonizer roles. The scout is required or the AI never leaves it's homeworld. The colonizer is required to make sure the AI does a sufficient job at expanding.

I'm also still of the opinion the Normandy SR-2 and SR-3 should be capital ships. Not so much that they are large vessels, but they should be more unique and not spammed. While this would take a capital ship slot the fleet supply could be less than the larger capital ships (which might become Titan class with Rebellion).

This would round out your capital ship selection and leave you filling the frigate/cruiser roles.

Which leads to the next question, What is your counters system you plan on implementing with this mod? This will drive how roles and damage modifiers are affected to a large degree... Another way to put this is how do you envision the space battles playing out?...

I agree about having Normandy SR-2 and SR-3 as unique capital ships but i am slightly confused about the fleet supply issue

Capital ships in vanilla sins take up 1 capital command point and 50 fleet supply points. The fleet supply is configurable while the capital command point is not.

So you would like it set to a different amount of supply point for both Normandy's say for example 20 fleet supply points?

Pretty, much in concept. If the SR2 or SR3 would be considered a "hero" or capital ship type unit, then I couldn't really see it taking up the same amount of fleet supply compared to the Destiny. It would just be another way to balance the game.

In comparison Vanilla Sins has all capital ships taking 50 fleet supply...
