Hydrovian Collective of the High Desert

Backstory

The Hydrovians are a humanoid race of pragmatic survivors currently in search of hospitable desert worlds to colonize. Their past is violent and scorched with the radioactive inferno of a thermonuclear conflict lasting generations. What remains is a high desert, littered with the wreckage of mechanized armies and the ruins of cities.

Physical Traits

Hydrovians are quite similar to humans, though over the centuries since the Great Nuclear War ended, they have adapted to the harsh life of the desert in which they reside. They are well adapted to radiation, rapid temperature changes and lack of water. The main aesthetic differences between Hydrovians and humans are their lighter skin and faintly glowing eyes.

Politics

Hydrovians tend toward peaceful negotiation than war, but they will not hesitate to fight if they feel their livelihood is being threatened.

Tech

Hydrovian technology is patchy at best. While they were able to save some research from before the War, much scientific progress was lost. Their main strengths are in the areas of indoor climate control, particle physics, metallurgy and the brewing of alcoholic beverages.

Homeworld

The Hydrovian homeworld of Orovad is a roughly earth-sized planet, mostly covered by an irradiated, mountainous high desert. It is windy, invariably dry, and temperatures range from 145°F (62.7°C) during the day to -20°F (-28.8°C) at night. It orbits the extreme inner rim of its star's habitable zone, having been knocked from its original orbit by several large nuclear blasts. It has two medium-sized moons and a set of brown-grey rings of debris thrown up during the War.

Locale

The HCHD can be found in the Invio system among two other planets, roughly here-ish (if that is ok with everyone). They have their sights set on a neighboring binary system consisting of a white dwarf and a neutron star, as well as several dense asteroid belts. The second system is known as Ferrionis.

Ships

Hydrovian ships are generally small, fast, and not too terribly good at turning, with an all-or-nothing armor scheme. Most are based on a common base hull in order to ease production and repair. They are armed with red lasers and short-ranged, wide-dispersion particle accelerators. They typically have little in the way of point defense. They are generally painted a sandy color.

I must say I'm impressed. From this to this in just a bit under two weeks.



EDIT: Hey, looking at the map, your faction is quite near mine. :P There's just CIT standing in the way.

Hehe, thanks. All it took really was some motivation. I've been playing this game off-and-on since 2008.

In that case I'm confused. It seems like a sudden change.

Basically I'm usually not motivated to make anything noteworthy. A few tips and tricks I learned once I started posting don't hurt either.

If you added a download I could balance test those two.

/\ balance testing as you go would be very beneficial, otherwise you might end up like me; having to go through my whole fleet several times picking out and tweeking individual weapons stats for hours (then only to be told you have to do it a again) :P

I could run some tests tommorow if you like.

Yes, I will upload them here in a sec. I'd do the testing myself, but this computer has the graphical ability of a bowl of mashed potatoes and it would be fiscally irresponsible of me to buy a new card at the moment.

Necron, as I said before I was planning on doin some balance tests for you this weekend.

I always test on the run. First time the ship is always horribly broken, but over time it shifts into something just fine.

The Hydro, I'll still let you know if I find something off with your ships.

Tip: Put them all in a zip and upload them as one file.
