First i just want to say: Thank you for this great mod, it really adds alot of fun stuff to the game.
Then to the rude, ungratefull brats with foul mouths: if you dont like it, make your own or shut the fuck up. Give mature feedback or nothing at all.
A few suggestions/ideas/observations:Seems like some ship names and descriptions are somewhat halfway done. A little more work there would be nice imho. Besides a good name the ships should have a descroption free from "strong shield. strong laser. strong missiles" imo. just make a general descroptin like: The xxx has been the workhorse of xxx since the beginning. It boosts massive missile banks and a rail cannon which can make short work of smaller vessels FOR INSTANCE. now this sucked and im sure you can do much better, but just take a little time to clot down some good descriptions. would be very nice. This helps with making the ships come alive in my oppinion.
The starbase is HUGE. It could definitly be toned down atleast 50%, take into consideration that the titan is pretty much as strong as it and he also need to have room for engines so it shouldent be much bigger than the titan unless it serves some other function than a battlestation/orbital defence station. The size also makes it hard to place it and maneuver around it. Also maybe it would be an idea to give the tec starbase shields, beeing that size it would be only logical eh?
Sure there are some issues like weapons firing through your textures, but im sure youll get to that in time. I dont find the agressiveness of the independents too hard, i play on hard and use from 1-3 opponents usually so i doubt anyone else have it that much harder than me, im a gimp player too so if i can do it nobody else should have a problem, just need to change the way you play.
I like your models alot, ive always pictured the TEC with ships mounting huge cannons like you portrayed them, so hmm i dont know what else to say. Im VERY HAPPY with the mod, keep up the good work. Oh yeah and when can we expect the next version?
