Thats right. Man I haven't touched that game in too long. And now I'm curious as to what groundbreaking thing it was I thought the BSG guys did. Great.  In any case, Excellent work so far. I look forward to the release.

Nice Rhea-bomber! Cyclops inclusive!

Are you going to have the various factions team-coulourable in the slightest? Or is that going to be restricted to their exhaust trails?

I'm still not sure about. What I do know is that team-colored trails are hardcoded, and that if I choose to make the ships themselves team-colorable, it won't be more than a few stripes here and there.

That was why I was asking. If you had said "No Team colors," then I would have immediately gone hunting for the color combination that produced the greatest visual representation of Apoc Drive trails. But since that might end up being pink on  green or something like that, I'll wait till you make a decision one way or another.

At least with the Karuna you'll have an easy time of deciding were to but the colored strips. Just replace the current blue ones above and below the nameplate with team-colored ones.

The narayana also looks pretty with different colored bits on the current blue regions, the stripes and the panels.

The UEF as a whole seems like it would be fairly easy to team color., except for maybe the Solaris and some of the utility vessels. Team color-able fighters wouldn't really be necessary, as the Drive trails would be more than enough to identify them by, unless you plan on making the trails nonexistent.

The GTVA would be a bit more difficult. The newer-generation capships could probably just have random stripes added to them without making them look too wrong, but the Orion is a whole other story. And I have no idea how you would handle Vasudans, assuming they show up anytime soon.

It's Serkr Team. Steele's war dogs, the ones who took Artemis. Alpha wing, clear our blast zone. You've done all you can.






For those interested, your average Serkr team oneshots a Nara, but barely.

Yes please.

 
Is Serkr going to come as a unit when purchased? Or will you have to build each individual ship? I'm assuming that either way,  you'll be capable of commanding them individually.

And I continue to be in awe of your work. Those are some of the best screenshots I've ever seen come out of Homeworld.

Individually, definitely. The only way to build em in group would be using squadrons, and you can't have different unit types in a squadron.

Yep. Forgot about that particular limit. Well, at least you aren't restricting them to starting fleets :)
