So here's a little heads up on what's coming soon. I haven't had a lot of time to commit to the mod recently but I have managed to a little bit of work. As such a small update will be coming soon which will contain several new ships for the Colonial side. One is the Sleipnir class which I have shown previously on the page.
The others will be the armoured Jupiter class.
And the wartime Galactica, also known as the "Overkillstar"
I cannot give you an exact date for the update as the Galactica model has not yet been finished but when it has it will be a powerful opponent to face. The "Overkillstar" has more heavy turrets than a Mercury class (no heavy forward battery though) and with heavy armour and more flak turrets she will be a potent centrepiece for a fleet. My current plan is to introduce a tech upgrade called 'Wartime Footing' which will unlock armoured and overkill Jupiter class ships.
Please note that these ships do not mean that I have managed to find a VFX artist. Instead I commissioned these ships from the modder Jeroenimo who is a very talented guy, you should check out his awesome mod: Moddb.com
This of course means that you cannot expect future ships from this source as it is not a sustainable method of getting new models, rather just me adding a ship I really wanted to see into the mod from my own pocket.
Eventually I plan to introduce new heroes based on these ships but I have not yet fully thought through this yet so I will comment more when it happens.
Thanks for reading!
