Syrk: The Unification Wars

Humanity has risen.
Originated on the third planet of the Sol system and having greater dreams about their future, they’ve colonized Sol.
But their fragile peace had shattered in no time and a civil war started… and the conflict’s outcome will surely determine humanity’s fate…
Even though every single Terran is sure about this, none of them can expect that they’ll meet their nemesis on the other side of an unstable jump node…


Yes, we're mod that is going to show in large campaign our vision of Unification War. The story that happened before FreeSpace: No shields, no advanced systems. Only pure fight for your survival.

You're going to meet four diffrent factions in game. Here're their quick descriptions:

STA (Solar Terran Alliance)
When humanity colonized Sol, they’ve allied under the name of Solar Terran Alliance and everything seemed to be all right. Buti t wasn’t. All the tension and hatred against the political system has escalated when radical, capitalist men offered that they’ll buy the whole Pluto for a considerable sum. Since this would have been a violation of the STA’s Mercury Convention, they’ve declined the offer. And by that decision, all hell has broken loose…

TC (Terran Confederacy)
The Terran Confederacy consists of those people who originally tried to buy Pluto, and - since they’re leaders of giant corporations – their followers and consumers. They demanded personal fleets and colonization companies. This would be equivalent of a Paramilitary Corporation and STA won’t tolerate this at all.

HE (Human Empire)
They’re the dissidents and rebels, fragments and splinter groups without a home and a place to run to. They’re the „nomads” of Sol, with hijacked capships and stolen fighters. Anarchists with a dream of separating Sol from planet to planet…

USS (United Space Stations)
No connection with America, though, these are those people who were former opposition of the STA’s government and their followers. Their policy is simply no more than to overthrow us and to pour a lot of money into system-to-system jumps. Which is untested.
It is rumoured though – and it appears to be true on some occasions – that this faction has the most advanced technology with such things that humanity never seen at all…

Expect more updates soon including screenshots, gameplay clips, movies and trailers!

Do you already have a vague idea how big this mod will become?

How many missions and how much content?

40-50 missions and a lot of terran mods. (for instance, an installation what is much smaller than an Arcadia)

50 missions and a lot of mods.


That will never be done. I think you should aim a lot lower than that, at least to begin with. Maybe 10-15 missions, use a few already made mods, etc. There is no way you'll get 50 missions done. Not for a while anyway. It's taken ED half a year and we've done barely 5-6. Making a good mission isn't an easy process.

You know, I am worse than a politician... if I say 40-50, it might just be 10...
It will only depend on the storyline and on how deep the storyline is. We'll see. Shiv will get a few TVWP mods, and the Angel already exists along with the Apollo (so some mods will surely be taken from Cardinal Spear), so even this number is not sure yet. As I said earlier, we'll see. We only just begun.

Well, good luck then.

I really hope it turns out good.
