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.

Report article RSS Feed Frequently Asked Questions

After seeing people ask the same question over and over again, it became apparent that there was a need for an FAQ post.

Posted by Yanxa on Mar 27th, 2012

"Are the batarians still going to be the third faction?"
No. The factions are Citadel, Reaper and Cerberus. Batarians are out; time-depending, they may feature as planetary militia.

"What about the quarians?"
Quarians will come under Citadel.

"And the geth?"
...come under Reapers.

"But what about the geth that aren't heretics?"
If we were to include the geth as part of the Citadel too, it would get far too confusing, as well as fill up valuable ship slots; would you really rather see geth cruisers multiple times, or would you rather see additional asari, salarian, and other Citadel race ships? Yeah, that's what we thought.

"Ok then, so what about the Normandy?"
The SR1 will be a Citadel frigate.

"And the SR2?"
The SR2 will be a starter unit for the Citadel, but won't be constructable, so keep it safe! Cerberus will be able to build SR2's, but only after the necessary research has been completed.

"What about my favourite ship? Will it be in this role?"
The ship's and their roles are still in flux - there isn't a definitive ships/roles list just yet, so if you haven't seen your favourite ship yet, don't fear - it doesn't automatically mean that it's not going to be in the mod.

"How about the Mass Relays - how will they work?"
We intend to use the mass relays to replace wormholes.

"Why was the release date pushed back?"
The release of ME3 meant a need to change large parts of both of the Reaper and Citadel fleets, as well as forcing a change of third faction. In order to make sure that everything is as good as it can be, extra time is needed. Just hang on in there.

"What game will it be for?"
Diplomacy and Rebellion

WOOO! Keep it up team, your doing amazing!
I have never seen the release date. If it doesn't bother you if I ask, but what was the old release date and what is the new one that has replaced it (if there is one)? I'm not a frequent person that repeatedly asks the same questions, this was my first time asking this.

I assume the Citadel SR2 will be buffed out of its mind?

You are correct I do want the Geth featured in the Citadel fleet, because, you know, they are kind of majorly not big fans of the reapers. A fraction of the Geth joined Soveriegn and the Geth only asked for reaper aid in ME3 because they feared for their own existence. The Geth deserve to be on the side they actually chose when given the opportunity. I always saw the Citadel faction as the diverse one, access to all free races which oppose the reapers. Cerberus are the narrow but advanced, but most of all well connected and internally stable. The Reapers are like no other relying on hyper advanced tech, indoctrination and overwhelming force, not tied down by the logistical limitations of the other two factions.

Just my opinion of course but it'd be nice to hear how similar our perspectives are.

Still love the mod, but do legion justice ( totally not guilt tripping)

Exactly. Legion sacrificed himself to give Geth a new better life, and to stop Reapers.

I would personally like to see a citadel ship be scrapped for the hopes that we could do a diplomacy research (diplo tech tree) to make peace with the quarians and the geth and unlock some sort of geth ship that might function as a support cruiser, maybe even add a slot so it wouldn't even be constructed by AI players

The Alliance isn't a faction in this mod, but it is part of the Citadel faction. It looks like the Alliance, Asari, Salarians, Turians, and Quarians make up the Citadel faction.

I'm not very aware of ALL the content in this mod, but i still would ask, who are the pirates going to be? though i think they should be the batarian faction because batarians are kinda like pirates?:) and i hope the volus are part of it in any way whatsoever, i love those guys
