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.
"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
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Dawn of the Reapers. We love games like Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
