Well... it has been a year or more since I didn't visit this forum. Actually I often visit this forums to see Transcendence development, but I'm bit too anxious since I didn't brings any mods update nor playing this game since then. Yet this pandemic got me into worse boredom and I'm stuck at the place far from home. So then, I wrote some plan for my mods and post it here for later after situation getting better.Hello everyone! Guess who is back! ＼(^o^)／
I haven't been into modding stuff for a quite long time, so I kinda confused with what I've done to Semesta mod and what I should do to improve it. I decided to reboot this mod to a new one: SEMESTA 2.0 REBOOT. Yeah, everything in this mod is a rip off from SEMESTA I.G.C. Some will be saved; much will be added; several will be changed; and rest will be removed. The Semesta itself is also no longer corporate-style faction. It now is an empire (I might write some narrative history later). I'll try update this thread occasionally.
ABOUT SEMESTA EMPIRE
Semesta formerly is a small corporation founded by Raden Jaya in 2360. It quickly reaches its great time with its sentinels, but also quickly fall during Corporate Hierarchy tension event. Semesta then went out from the hierarchy. Then in Nusantara system where as Semesta base located, Raden cought several Iocrym vessel passing by. He and his team followed their trails and it end at mystical Malacca system. The system has strange green star. There is no sight of Iocrym however. They only found an abandoned Iocrym outpost with several Iocrym ship's wrecks. There also a broken stargate not far from outpost.
After several research on abandoned Iocrym outpost, Raden found a hope. He discovers Padamium, an exotic elements produced only from Malacca's star emission. New Semesta armors such as Rompi, Lamina, and Zirah designed with Padamium coats. He also got very much cash after selling looted Iocrym equipments to the black market. Raden make use of them to raise up his corporation.
However, Raden's successes cause suspicion from Commonwealth official. They send spies to the Semesta and found out about Malacca system. They then demanded Raden to cease his corporate activity and hand over the Malacca for more potential research prospect. Raden refused. He doesn't want loose a system that gave him prosperity. He then ordered his men to capture Commonwealth mining colony in Nusantara system as a warning.
Commonwealth considered this action as rebellion act. They boycotted Semesta products and started arming their militia. At same time, Raden start transmitted his black campaign on many faction to gain his strength, especially to Malayan race. Many Malayan people supports him. They usually from low class labor such as miner. Over ten thousand peoples migrated to Semesta and joined them. Despite Semesta is building its strength quickly, Commonwealth still confident to put their rebellion to end. They set their position at Banda system. Semesta do the same.
However, a day before war happens, Commonwealth spy found out over 25 Semesta reinforcement from Malacca are arrived at Nusantara. The reinforcement ships armed with Hancur cannon; a thermonuclear weapon. This is a terrible news. Commonwealth Fleet already strugling fighting with Ares and they can't just call their fleet back to aid their battle to Semesta.
They then opened negotiation with Raden Jaya in 2375. They offered several benefited cooperation, but Raden wanted more than it. He want his dominance in Overseas Dominion and they recognized Semesta's sovereignty. While there is disagreement between Commonwealth officials, but they finally agreed and proceed to make Palapa treaty.
Semesta Empire was born.
