there are alot more finished areas which i wont post pics of them yet. I might make an entirely new forum page once this map is fully done since the first page mostly shows really old stuff that has been completely revamped since. On top of that the map is in actual playable state now and there's a back story so i would prefer if that was the first thing people saw instead of stupid old crap

oh also, xterminator will make a showcase video so that will also be perfect for a new map forum front page!

Hello fellow Starsector-player. :mrgreen:

I can't find some of the pics in the FF Spotlight. Yet there I see a "crashed" Odyssey and the remains of an Onslaught.
Hell Tyrador Safeguard Coalition is definitly a mod in there :D

Looks really really plausible. Very well done!

My greates respect for that work!

I have explored this scenario using a train as much as I can.

This is a fantastic creation!

Much appreciation to you, the Creator.

I didnt actually make an odyssey on the map since it would have been probably off scale so just pretend it crashed in the lake xD

also about tyrador, essentially you can find a planet called nauvis in that mod and it says the planet has native insectoid aliens living on it so i figured i should make this map also connect factorio to the starsector universe... think i did a pretty good job lol

I need every bit of self control to wait for the complete version and not starting it immediately :D

oh its complete, just figured i would wait a bit and see if its balanced by playing it myself

now that ive played a good bit i would say dont play with bobs or angles at first. Start with mods that add stuff and doesnt make you require non vanilla ressources. Once you get a decent base then you could play with bobs.

I "might" make a combat scenario which will be small but it will show the last stand in the city hall and the goal is to survive as long as possible with some limited ressources and infinite ammo. I will probably do that once i have a decent base going on my own map lol

I have been killed by massed biters, flaming biters, biter acid, and of course by Train. Now a new one, drowning. There I was on Nauvis, mining the large bridge approaches for reinforced concrete when the section I was standing on was taken by my personal bot -- splash!

There was only water beneath.
I salute you "Maelstrom" for your magnificent scenario, you tricky bastard.
I curse you with the “want to do the next one larger and better”.
Multiple player anyone?

made a public server thats running with mods but i will be honest, I like cheating in early game so be warned for really stupid random infinite chests lol

I still build alot of stuff but if it gets boring i like to play semi-creative :3

you can always join if you want, already have a bunch of stuff setup but since we are using bobs mod the map is a bit unplayable without cheating so yeah... expect a weird starter base lol
