So after the shit that happend on steam with my other mods i decided to stop doing it for Stellaris and focus more on making new ship models.

Hi,

for starters i am not good at this stuff writing :). After the shit that happend on steam and the fact that PDX is not really eager to support modders for Stellaris, yeah the game is great for modding the support on the other hand sucks.

I stopped with further modding my shippacks and the other mods and started looking for a game that is quite good/ easy to mod and the support for modders is nice too. After some search i found Starpoint Gemini Warlords, the Devs are quite activ on steam, it has a good amount of tutorials/ documentation for modding and the engine can handle the stuff you throw at it (what i have seen so far).

So i looked up the tutorials and started to prep my Fractal Victory SD. The time for it takes more time then in Stellaris but the final ship do looks nice ingame.

First 3 meshes are the LOD meshes, the middle one is the main mesh, the pink ones are Collision mesh and Collision Hit mesh (weapons), the last one on the right is the derelict mesh that spawns after the destrution.

The Material Editor is pretty awesome, the option´s that let you control you´r texture maps, particle´s and other stuff is quite good.

The time spent to get it into the game was around 2 days roughly, but the final ship ingame is it worth to spend.

Ingame 2

Ingame 3

Ingame 4

For now i will concentrate on bringing in first my weapon models for the ships, then my other 2 ships and start making more of Fractals ships or i will retexture the ships i have from Jeroenimo but i am not sure on that :). About the Mod itself it will be for now only adding new ships but i think when i get the hang of it, i will expand to other areas from the game too.

Thanks for reading and bearing my English!

You are a good artist! I hope you keep at it and make many ships for warlords. Maybe even a star wars conversion? :)

Hello Elratie, I'm a major fan of your work and I wanted to say its sad to see you leave the Stellaris modding community. Your mods were very well loved in stellaris, and their is going to be a big hole around where you left. I also had some questions to ask if you dont mind.

Q1: will the star wars mods be updated for DLC? or will you just upate on patches until the next DLC.
Q2: Will you pass this mod down to anybody who would like to continue with the mod development? Like ate you willing to speak with the stellaris modding community about continued support/updates/addons? Not to be insulting, i know modders love their work. This is just a question
Q3: is their a possibility for your return into the stellaris commumity in the future?
Q4: is Starport Gemni good?

Sorry for the trouble ive caused, its just I had a lot of questions that i wanted to ask and had no idea if it qould cause trouble/upset you. I will also bw posting this on the GCW mod page for stellaris as I dont know where you will answer from. Thanks again
