September was a very busy month for everybody (you know, summer is finished, back to work/school)
This was also reflected in the number/quality of the mods released in September.
I was very busy too (I still am), however I think we deserve to celebrate those new mods.

Here's the list of September and October. Please comment the mods in this thread, why you like them, etc...

Comments/poll/voting will close October 31st !
There is still time to upload you mod and enter competition!

I really enjoyed Shrike's Mod (Mining Charges) because it provides a clever alternative to the mining laser, which I find to be somewhat a pain (at least for me.) It makes mining a hell of alot easier. I am going to cast my vote for this mod. :D

Hi, Digdug! Xenesis has been deleted from Xelerus for an overhaul with the "ship" model, so pls delete from the current list for voting. Thx! :D

Id definitely love to see one of SiaFu's mods be nominated. Have the SFSpaceStations already been nominated at any time?

Is it cheating if I vote for my mining charges?

I'll be fair vote for Prophet's mining rewrite as it made me feel like a kid in a candy store when blasting through the asteroid fields with my Maelstrom.

I vote for the mining rewrite too :) Mining has been a very hot topic recently and the mining rewrite has solutions to asteroid mining that are brand new.
In particular I really like the auto ore collector and the fact that all asteroids have ore.

Hi all.

Thanks for considering the mining rewrite, but it's not officially released yet. It should not be in the running until it's complete and it will hopefully be a collaboration with the new mining weapons from other authors at that time.

I'll cast my vote for SiaFu's StelliFer laboratories.
Coming soon: The Syrtian War adventure mod!
A Turret defense genre mod exploring the worst era in Earth's history.
Can you defend the Earth from the Syrtian invaders?
Stay tuned for updates!

Hasn't SiaFu said that is also incomplete?

Oh, yeah, please remove the SM&M Teaser. It's not a full mod and SM&M is still very much a WIP.

(Not that anyone's gonna be voting for it anyway :D )

When I made the thread I left all the unfinished mods because they contain interesting code and graphics.

so, removing the unfinished mods/proof of concept mods means removing 4 mods:

# StelliFer Laboratories 1 SiaFu
# Mining rewrite 1 Prophet
# SM&M Teaser 0 Shrike
# Alphastrike test mod 0 digdug

Is that fine ?

Gee, it's freezing in here :? ... Why has the voting gone cold?

Assuming all the WIP mods are removed from the list of candidates, I vote for Sdw195's The Weapon!
