In other news.
1) All GRM mods are up to date and released. PHEW
2) Work will continue on producing more Mercs. So many more Mercs... so damned. Many.
3) Working on a redux of the RN shipset (B5 Narn). I won't be removing this shipset, but a new version will come out for use with the Regime of Tothk. The new shipset will use several of the hull elements of the RN set, but be unique, have turrets and weapon mounts that are more in line with GRM ship design philosophy. While I have "gimicky" races like the crystals, the races I'm serious about get turrets The new set will also utilize some of the new MERCS parts.
4) I've also figured out how to replace the models for the strategic resource mines (its too bad this isn't race specific). I've already produced a awesome new mining model complete with rotating mining lasers lol. This will require MERCS as well.
In general if your a fan of GRM stuff and hope to continue utilizing my content in the future, go get Mercs! I plan to avoid making a lot of stuff that rely on the smaller DLC but the expansions will become essential to keep GRM up to date. For example, I've designed a new Terran Sovereignty freighter that uses a few MERCS parts.
