Yes they did, during this time

Kuat and Dac had a partnership, they shared engineering plans and technology since the New Republic owned Kuat. Remember, this is the New Jedi Order, the Imperials were only a small faction at Bastion and Yaga Minor

They really never built original Mon Cal ships... KDY built only Star Destroyers and new ships from New Class Modernization Program.

It is debatable, some sources say yes, others don't say at all.

If anything, you can imagine the liberty class cruisers undergoing repair while the isd's were being built ;)

Honestly the mod has already taken liberties with the lore in some areas. Where the is nothing, we create. Thats why the chiss faction is composed of (largely) completely original ship designs, as there are very few canon images of chiss ships. Some ships for other factions are even ported from eve online. Considering this i think its acceptable to take some liberties with the lore.

Think about this though. The NR was ship strapped and probably took what could be built fastest?

The entire galaxy was caught off guard by the invasion. Everyone had just finished about 60 straight years of continual warfare from the Clone wars to Palpatine to Thrawn and all through all the warlords, Yeveetha and Ssi-Ruuvi. Resources were exhausted, navies were in repair, the entire Galaxy was just starting to settle down and come to peace when suddenly it started all over again...

The NJO series of books is a fascinating read. Dark and severe at times, it really depicts a galaxy in trouble that is suddenly caught off guard and nearly obliterated. The authors wrote a progressive story line, always in motion, always progressing as the war eats away at everything known. Many backstories and histories of non-prominent races were ignored as the story only focused on the "here and now". This makes for a great read, but for a lousy game if followed exactly as written. To create a complete game, these holes must be filled in. To do so, we are taking liberties and developing our own psuedo-lore thanks to artistic license to create a game without holes for your enjoyment.

The Hutt's had a fleet that supposedly held off the Vong for 2 years, but there is no mention of what this fleet is?

Mandalorians also had a fleet to secure its world until the later days of the war.

Bothans splintered away from the New Republic with a fleet of their own.

The Chiss amassed a fleet to battle the Kilks and very little is known about either of these forces.

We are attempting our best to deliver a game that displays a believable answer to all of these questions, while still being balanced and fun and not stretching too far into the imaginary or totally unbelievable.

Apparently the Empire had tried using Dac facilities to build Imperial ships during their post-CW/pre-Yavin occupation of the planet. This didn't work out as the technologies of the two different species proved to be not compatible enough.

Though I don't see how KDY couldn't manage to give support and maintenance, at least loading for Mon Cal ships (or any, for that matter) indeed.

Freeworlds: Tides of War mod (great mod :) lists the Deponn shipyards to be the Mon Calamari facilities on the ring structure .

I am not sure where they cited this from, but just merely adding to the friendly conversation :)

Ten Bucks says many Mon Cals traveled from Moncalamari to Kuat for this.

Pls answer, is the ring supposed to be fragmented canonically or is it game limitations?

It is supposed to be fragmented, but has never mentioned how much. This is my interpretation of it. Wookipedia describes the ring as a series of separate factories and construction yards that "nearly completes" a full ring. In this cannonical image: Img1.wikia.nocookie.net it can clearly be seen that there is separations between all the different segments. There is no further accurate depiction of the ring. A multi-tiered revolving ring seemed most logical to me, for this way, goods manufactured on one side of the ring could more easily be delivered to the far side of the planet in less time.

In SWTOR it seems to be a "fixed" ring, where girders connect the segments, and SWTOR's depiction is the most canonical to date I think.

Yes that image is probably the most up to date in real time. However, The Old Republic is old. I believe something like 3700 BBY because it is 300 years after KotOR which was set in 4000 BBY. This means that that depiction of Kuat is 3725 years old by the Vong War. So it is reasonable to that there were some alterations between the Old Republic's Kuat and the Modern Kuat.

I personally question TOR as a legitimate canonical source--especially since, in that image, the starships look to be much larger than the shipyards.

Ahem... PERSPECTIVE and DEPTH of FIELD? If they are close by relative to the observer then they will appear much larger than the shipyards lol?
