I'd like some more Shivan missions in multi, and with more ships than the Mara to select, too.
And also some Shivan participation in Gauntlets, which would require some sort of balancing, of course.
This would, thus, involve some kind of mod. And as I personally want my stats saved when I play FSNet, it'd have to be something validated.
Would that be posible?
I already made a small Shivan-Mod years ago... I just recently looked into it, and it even already has Dogfight-versions of the Shivan primaries, one of the few things that could be used for balancing.
Seeing that Shivan ships aren't too advantageous in retail (it seems to me - please correct me if I'm wrong) , I have slightly increased those dogfight-versions' stats...
Seeing that the Kayser is said to be reverse- engineered Shivan tech, I'd think it'd be legitimate to add it to the Shivan ships loadouts, too.
I'm not sure what missions I made for it - propably only the gauntlets and a few dogfights, not sure... So I - or someone else - would likely have to do a bit FREDing for this.
Well, I'm just posting this to see how many interest there is, and how the chances for validation are...
Another point would be to include it into Squadwar, once that starts again - I don't think I would have too much time for that, but the idea of playing with a Shivan squad would be quite nice...

So - how's it? Chance of validation, interest, balancing ideas, anything?
