Unread post My Game Edit: Serenity Firefly.
I'm working on a game edit based on the movie/show Serenity/Firefly. Included are some of the changes that I've implemented in the game.

Ferrangi name changed to "The Reavers" They act and operate the same as the Ferrangi.
The Reavers operate in 4 different ships.
-Retrofitted Firefly (Cargo ship)
-Retrofitted Battleship-
-Retrofitted Interdictor Cruiser
-Retrofitted Scout Marauder

The Reaver ships are as seen in the show/movie.
Reavers operate in zero containment (No shields) therefor Reaver ships max shields are set to zero.
Reavers hold 30-80% more fighters than the standard ship.
Reaver ships don't have any wiz bangs or gizmos.
-No scanners
-No atomic detonators
-No Genesis Torpedoes
-No Limpet
-No Mines
-No Transwarp drives
Basically if your a blood thirsty cannibal you aren't worrying about all the fancy stuff, but rather loading up as many fighters as you can to ambush and eat someone.

The Blue Sun
I created a 2nd aggressive alien class, they are the complete opposite as the Reavers, they are a positive alignment aggressive alien class who holds -20% fighters as a standard ship while being able to hold a huge bonus in shield compacity.

The Blue sun
The Blue Sun has all the fancy items while being limited on an offensive side. They are more Defensive while having Scanners, Transwarp drives, Genesis Torpedoes, Mines, and scanners.
Blue Sun has 4 ships they operate with.
-Modified Firefly (cargo ship)
-Modified Battleship
-Modified Interdictor Cruisers
-Modified Scout Marauder

-
I've included a small number of neutral planets set up with level 2 citadels, a small amount of cash in the citadel, and a small supply of settlers and supplies.
These planets represent planets that are in the show/movie. An example of these planets are as follows.
-Triumph
-Higgin's Moon
-Haven
-Whitefall

These planets are added as a boost for players who actually go scouting the universe. These planets are in random sectors in standard ship lanes.

There are a good deal of other edits that I've implemented in the game which will be left to traders to discover on their own.

First run will probably be 20k sectors and 20k turns. I'll post more later as I'm about to head off to work.

Farley, I was messaged by a fellow player/sysop who offered to host the file on their server while I work on acquiring another computer to set up as a server (as my old server was stolen when someone broke into my house a couple months ago.) I probably won't have the file hosted on their server for another 5-7 days as there are some finishing touches left for me to work on.

If you wish to put your settings in your post, try proGameInfo5 - it will also create ANSI for your ships/planets. It will also create an html file and a file for the forums as found in (viewtopic.php?f=39&t=28624&hilit=progameinfo)

I would backup the .twa before running the script just in case...

Warning: I haven't tried it with the new TWGS - too much in flux for me to rewrite it at this time.

I had a good idea of modifying the alien names per faction. I implemented 15 negative alien names and 14 positive alien names.

-Negative.
Dr.horrible (one of Joss Whedon's other pieces of work)
Mingo
Fanty
Mr.Universe
Saffron
Badger
Shepherd Book
Rance Burgess
Bester
Stitch Hessian
Magistrate Higgins
Monty
Nandi
Adelei niska
Ott

-Positive
Captain Hammer (From Dr.Horrible)
Joss Whedon
Tim Minear
Sheriff Bourne
Dr.Caron
Lawrence Dobson
Jubal Early
Sir Warwick harrow
Fess Higgins
Dr. Mathias
Lenore
Petience
Tracey Smith
Atherton Wing

If anyone can think of any other minor characters from the show or movie that I can add that would be great.

I sent the .TWA file to a sysop who is going to host it for the time being while I work on getting my server back up. I will post info on the rebang once it's done.

Sorry for the delay. We rolled out 32 workstation this weekend, and I have had about 8 hours of sleep in the past 5 days. It's been a blast. Things are settling down now though, and I will be able to load the TWA tonight.

Thanks Micro for your help, I should have my internet set up on the 24th (tomorrow) in which I'm going to try to set up a server on one of my spare machines that I pieced together. I'll check your server later and have my father connect to it to play the game once it's up.
