Foundation Of Borken
-*Welcome to Cthulasus Borken*-

For 0.9a



No one understood the rise of ApproLight which was so abrupt and unexpected. But Borken does— They are ApproLight’s shareholder, supporter and “enemy” that rivals and instigates them via proxy behind the scenes.

Great Old Gods dominated all that was, then Cthulasus Borken was born. Their birth into reality brought with them into the world beauty, peace and then chaos. After the death of the Old Gods’, they carried on and into the infinite void of space. Eventually finding themselves in an unfamiliar place, the Persean Sector at the expanse of their precious treasure, Time.

If you meet them in your travels, fear not. Though their tentacles and alien appearance are unsettling Borken, as alien as they are you can trust are peace loving and shrewd traders.

The ships of the foundation are unlike those built by humans, employing short-lived phase cloaks and regenerative armor plating for defense.


Gameplay examples

Private Crystal Rift

A unique storage service offered by the Foundation, assuming you stay on their good side, allowing you to establish a network of connected transport facilities, giving you access to your Rift storage from across the sector at a fee.

0.2.0a Translated

Great spritework, but I’m not sure I understand what’s going on in the screenshots. Are they are regular faction or something you find while exploring?
I’ll try this mod soon.

Very sleek ship design, nice work.

Very nice work to the team! I was very much looking forward to add them to my mod list.

they have found each other…

heh, it’s really like a face

neat, looking forward to trying these. :]

I keep reading “Borken” as “broken”…

Also, quoth Alex on twitter: “I keep being amazed at what people are able to do with the game!” – so definite bonus points for getting that response.

YES HELL YES. Been waiting for this badboy ever since I saw it on one of the tournament streams. Great spritework.

Ok you have my attention

Hmm, maybe the Borken are remnants of the alien enemies of Domain of Man that people in sector know only from legends?

Nope, they are a peaceful race and only interested in trade.

Nexerelin support coming sometime later?

This reply also marks the 13th reply on this post, so I guess i’m unlucky.

After so long I come back to the game to find this =D I had to admit, seeing this new mod, makes me wish ApproLight was a Total Conversion! I am so happy =D
