If there is one thing that I would play this for, it would be those god damn amazing particle effects. They have to be some of the nicest lasers i have ever seen.

Good job TR team.

The whole picture is really awesome. With the color scheme of the ships' textures and the round designs, it looks like it could fit in with the Amarr from EVE.

How will these mini factions work? Will they be like other factions in every way except weaker and not playable by humans (still have to add them in like players) or will they somehow add themselves or take the place of pirates etc? :D

Functionally they're just like the playable factions in every way, except they aren't pickable and have smaller unit lists.

Currently the way it works is there are certain maps where, if the last slot is filled in the player selection, that AI will become the Hapans/Ssi-Ruu. So, you can choose to disable them or enable them. It also means if you were to play that map in multiplayer and you have more people than the map was "intended" for, the last person gets to lose. And also play as an NPF.

It'll be explained better ingame, but if it ends up being too confusing we may end up just putting them as selectable so people can have as many of them, wherever they want, just with the caveat that we're not balancing or filling them the same way as we are for the others so if they choose to play as them they're gonna have a harder time.
