Basically, the SVN is still down so I've hosted my working copy of the beta elsewhere. While it's of course primarily intended for the beta testers, as it's not entirely finished yet, though I figure there's no harm posting the download links here as well. It's been broken up into a few modules, so you don't have to load all of the mod's assets when playing, to save on RAM usage. Make sure the CORE module is at the bottom of your mod list in EnabledMods.txt, like so.
Also, soon after uploading I noticed a small bug regarding artifacts. Once you have downloaded all of the mods' folders, please extract this patch, overwriting when prompted.
The Vong haven't been uploaded as I'm not ready to release 'em for testing just yet. They do work fine, but they haven't gotten the AI overhaul the others have. There have been a lot of changes, such as: entirely redoing frigate build and supply costs (most frigates cost <1 supply; still need to update the strings to reflect this), making the Trafed II FG have antiveryheavy damage (makes it much more useful), removal of the MC80 SFRS (Liberator has been buffed up, has full squadrons), fixed up the MC80 Diplo capital, added the Dauntless capital ship (uses a filler model atm, costs need to be balanced), removal of the Torpedo Sphere capital and creation of the Torpedo Sphere cruiser, among many others.
