Caclian news lines:Asteroid field discovered near deep space station,estimated to drift to it in about 235 years.

Info:
Spoiler: show
The caclians are local to the planet corceal and only use the best of ores for ships,along with mainly being secretive in mining.They operate as a democracy and only resort to attacking planets directly as a counter attack.They have kept themself secret for 30 years until recently being spotted by a probe,they then confessed themselves and started being less secretive,to the disliking of many citizens



Ship info:


Spoiler: show
Theyre ships are mainly built for taking hits rather than attacking,though they still have good weaponry package,theyre fleet is very small,consisting of only 6,500 military ships and 845 shipping ships.




Backstory:(Too small for large text and spoiler)They are made up of a bunch of former members of certain factions


SHIPS


Spoiler: show
Frigates:

Image
This simple missile frigate has 2 beams and 2 light missiles mounted onto a turret drove by a old re-used railgun mount

Image
Bimmor class escort frigate
Small ship,only known caclian vessel meant to be used by sending in large amounts.Meant to escort miners and scout in large groups

Destroyers:
Image
Heracolon class assault destroyer:It mainly fires with its 5 red assault lasers


Image
Zenonon class artirrley destroyer,A low production destroyer only seen in patrols and scouting troops to back up the cruisers from afar,sofar only 82 where made
Cruisers:
Image
Coracono Fleet cruiser

The second most produced caclian warship(The first being the heracolon)
It combines speed and firepower in a good mix but with a low turnrate.

Battleships:X

Freighters:X
Carries:X
Mining:
Image
Gimbock class mining ship
This ships only armament is its mining beams,used to mine the ores used for armour and ship hulls

Other:
Image
Sentrite experimental ship.Unkown class
A very odd ship,ever since they became known of,they have been worried of being attacked,so they decided to build a ship that was meant for military,and this ship was born,with 3 powerful railguns and other good weapons,they decided it might work.It however has never seen combat and has been known to have glitchy systems.The only known ship of its kind is the C.S.S. Longsaber

Eh, some room for improvement I guess. Maybe make them look more mining oriented? But whatever. I'm gonna do a large balance test (finally) in the next few days. So if you want to submit a download I'd be sure to give you feedback in that department.

Im planning on uploading the download file as soon as i finish this list:
2 destroyers:Check
Atleast one battleship:X
A mining ship:X

Only some of there ships are mining though,theyre not like collectors,they just like to keep things private and only use the best ores.

You have your shiny sprite directories incorrect. They should all be under Kae_shn.
That being said, your balance is pretty good. And by "pretty good" I mean, they're quite weak. The Kriken and Ashtic completely raped your forces, and they're low-end. Now, this isn't a bad thing, as you could just make yourself a zerg faction. If I were you I wouldn't change it, as it's all too easy to overpower your ships.

Taking a small break from a break to answer:a main reason could be the lower section count,i didn't want to post the download because i was still working out the stats of them,when i get back im going to increase the health a bit to make up for low section and maybe ramp the guns up a tad bit.Besides,i wanted to get the weak expendable ship out first before the strong ones,the next batch of ships will be stronger i can guarantee

You might want to upload the custom sprites you used. And put them in the correct subfolders, as, judging by the missing sprites, your custom sprites folder doesn't follow the standard organisation. There shouldn't be a folder named "Kae_shn 257-384", for example.

Also, make yourself a color scheme or something. They should be recognisable. When people see them, they should be like "This ship is Caclian", not "What faction is that ship from?"

Also, those ships are pretty underpowered, but that's not necessarily bad.

I strongly agree with this, especially as they don't have any faction unique features.

Hello everybody,im not really "back" yet,but im working on new stuff,also im planing on editing the ships to make them recognisable like you two suggested.Also,are sheild devices allowed?Because one of my new ships uses one.And about the ships being underpowered,when i meant high quality in the app,i meant good technology,and as i said in the app,they aren't military oriented and one of the new ships i made is better in combat.

Hey welcome back and i see what you did with the OP. Take your time since activity in the forums is kind of well you know slow.

Some of your ships look unfinished by the way like the zenonon and bimmor, both at the back part of their hull.
plus if i remember correctly, doogie never allowed shields due certain balancing issues so you might as well replace it with a teleportation device or something.

I hope you aren't using the bubbleshield module, and that it is actually a section.
