Today we are opening the submission phase for new NPC Faction candiates! For the first round, we only require a few things for a succesfull application as a NPC Faction candiadate A. Mandatory elements for the application: 1. NPC Faction needs to have a name that is not too crazy (needs to fit the sci fi game and Empyrion) 2. Give a brief description of your NPC factions global orientation in the galaxy (Are they warriors, isolationists, religious, traders etc pp; what are they up to etc.) 3. NPC Faction requires at least* - one Combat-Ready CV (for use as Patrol Vessel on Orbits) - one POI that can serve as a Headquarter (for Base Attacks) - one Orbital POI / station *(these three CAN be in production or concept phase. They do NOT need to actually exist yet, but need to be ready IF your faction is added to the game!) Screenshots and pictures are strongly recommended Most important: your faction POI and vessels need to be RECOGNIZABLE from its visuals and designs! If a player runs into a POI or ship, they should know "this is faction XY". This is mainly decided by the visuals of the design (shape) and the color schemes ( Logos do not matter at this point in time, as they might need to be chosen/changed when the faction is officially added ) B. Optional additions to the applicaton - Define the relationship with Zirax, Polaris and Talon - Define the type of the NPCs (f.e.x human, reptiloid, insectoid, mollusk...) - Define the preferred playfield types ( temperate, ocean, lava..) - Define the name of their Homeworld - etc pp. Note: You CAN go as crazy and detailed as you want ( A good example what to think about can be found here: https://empyriononline.com/threads/faction-creation-template.92251/) BUT for the application this is NOT required! C. How to submit an application? 1. Write a comment to this post with the mandatory info (A) or all the Info (A+B+...). 2. Only one comment per NPC Faction 3. You can submit more than one NPC Faction 4. If your faction already has blueprints available, send me a PN with either the bp files or a link to the workshop (you do NOT need to post this public if you do not want to!): https://empyriononline.com/members/hummel-o-war.366/ > OPEN new conversation. Use your proposed faction name as SUBJECT For all the others: This is a SUBMISSION thread, so we will not allow any comments other than submissions. Applications ONLY! If there are any QUESTIONS, feel free to ask. I will delete your comment and add the answer to the 2nd comment of this post. Off we go!
