Quick question, are you intending to take on all aspects of the mod by yourself? That is, ships, effects, level design, etc. ?

Initially. I'm not so sure anymore. That said, I've never gotten a good outcome from trying to start a team. I would love help but I don't bring much to the table to make it worth anyone's while. At least not with how little I know now. Asking for said help with nothing to offer is so intimidating to me.

My point with this was more, you really should accept more people on deck rather than try to tackle a megaproject on your own. Especially with the scope of what I suspect you're trying to go for, I seriously doubt a single person can pull it off, and this community is helpful and open so you shouldn't shy from asking for help. There's bound to be someone willing to give assistance.

[EatThePath] do your missiles do anything absurd?

indeed, pulling off something like that usually is something very few modders manage...

Pulling off a fully realized open world with a lot of content and new art would take a big team. A bare bones proof of concept of the mechanics and code that leans on systems instead of content might not though.
Name your damn turrets and sounds! Numbers alone aren't helpful!
