This Is A Capital Ship Only Mod Due To Some Limitations And Lets Face It Everyone Loves Capitals Vs Capitals
NOTE: THIS MOD ONLY WORKS WITH REBELLION 1.82 Versions, The Unexpected NEW DLC From Stardock Is Well Unexpected And Sadly Isint Compatible With The Mod. So This Only Works On Games Without The New DLC. There Is No Guarantee That The Mod Will Be Updated For The Latest DLC Since Its Too Much Work And Am Only One Guy And This Was An Old Mod And Well I No Longer Have Enough Spare Time To Spend On This Project. For All Intent And Purpose Consider The Mod As Final Version And Done.

Note -
1) It Is Strongly Suggested To Use "LARGE ADDRESS AWARE Enabled Exe [LAA]", As It Is Known To Avoid Mini Dumps Caused Due To Excess Ram Usage. Its Not For Everyone.. But When It Works Its Very Handy. Personally I Never Had A Problem While Using It. It Can Be Found In The Forums. 
2) If U Find It Hard/Unfair To Play On Normal Maps, Use The Maps That Are Provided Along.

Known Bugs -
- Game Crashes On Exit While Using Some Maps And Crashes On Exit When Using The Ragnarov Titan (Dont Know Why, And Dont Know How To Fix It Lol)
- Pirates Sometimes Loves To Run Out Of Gravity Well And Fight (Dont Know Why And Dont Know How To Fix It Lol Again)

- Game May Crash If Ur Have "Random Opponent" And "Flagship Victory" On Cause Of The Pirate Faction Bug Present In Maelstrom (Dont Know Why, But Can Be Fixed)
Other Than Them Non.
