| The Scy Nation literally emerged from the ashes of the “Science Colony of Yggdrasil”. Before the Collapse, the S.C.o.Y. was a nomadic colony built inside an asteroid to travel the stars and study the universe one system at a time. When the Great Collapse occurred and the gate system shutdown the colony became trapped in the Sector, its inhabitants found themselves at the unfortunate center of attention of the Tri-Tachyon Corporation, the Hegemony and the Luddic Church, all eager to get their hands on Yggdrasill’s mini-autofactory and its intact pre-collapse UAC library. Using the gigantic ship as a Cryo-arch, two thirds of the population would escape the crossfire while the rest were put to the stake by Ludd fanatics for worshiping the “demonic autofactory”.|
They tried to rebuild their life in a remote system, away from the core worlds Collapse, but circumstances always seems to pull them back, always forcing them to take further extremes measures to ensure their survival.
|You can dive deeper into the story of the Scy Nation with these documents:|
Skirmisher to the core, Scyan ships have a deep flux pool to make the most out of an hit-run, and slightly better speed to manage to disengage. On the other hand they have slightly more fragile hulls, narrow shields, terrible flux dissipation (relying on venting instead) and fewer weapon mounts. They have to rely on wolf pack tactics to kill isolated targets while the bigger enemies are tied up pursuing smaller prey. Their weapons usually have worse range than vanilla one but superior damage, making even the smallest ship a potential threat if left completely unchecked. When pursued however, they can fold very quickly due to their exposed sides and low staying power.
This faction mixes all techs in a melting pot of advanced engineering craziness, producing ships and weapons unlike any others. It features ships with modular armor, teleporting guns, phase missiles, laser torpedoes, all sorts of miniguns and more.
Additionally if you would enjoy playing with a custom paintjob, I also take commissions for a reasonable rate. PM me for more details.

Cool stuff you’ve done so far, love your designs and animations.
I am not really good with coding and tbh I don’t have time to help anybody out because I am busy with my own mod but I simply wanted to give a warm welcome to a new modder!
If you like give me a PM and I’ll invite you to the modder’s skype chat, it’s very useful if you need help or want to share your ideas and thoughts.
I am very impressed by your animations, I’ve been animating stuff as well for my bioships to make them look alive, if you’ve got any spare time I might actually need some help with an animation I wanted to do for weeks now but it’s so hard.
Keep up the good work, I am looking forward to see those ships of yours ingame!
Unfortunately I can’t help you either, but for the reason that I wouldn’t be able to java my way out of a paper bag.
The story’s well written and explained, very original and stuff!!
First, I’ll try to get a precise idea of what need to be done in the coding side, and what I can take care of, before starting PMing for help.
Bonus track: some other animations, but with older sprites.
I am too really happy to see someone go overboard on the lore aspect (and especially the presentation of the lore) – and then to do so without even having a playable mod!
… and the animation teaser so far looks fantastic – could really take your sprites from great (which they are) to something else indeed.
Good luck and godspeed! Can’t wait to play with them!
About the logo, thats the Owl or Happy librarian lady ?
But seriously, you have an *amazing* mod here, and I think I can say that it far outclasses the lore of any mod on the forum right now. It also has some beastly animations, all of which are incredibly cool! Man, I am humbled by your presence!
