About this mod

SVE adds multiple new ships to all factions. The ships are made with the vanilla artstyle in mind and are used by AI factions or can be found as derelicts.

Permissions and credits
SVE started as a project to add battleships to other factions than the Xenon by using the existing supplyship models.
I later decided to make some more variations by kitbashing and editing the models of other ships.
All ships are added to shipyards of their respective factions and require permits depending on their classification in order to be bought.
Some of the vessels have different variants available.
All ships support paintjobs.

The ships should be spawned instantly in a new game and the AI will also build them over time in existing saves.
All ships require adequate licences to obtain or can be captured from the various AI factions while going about their business. A few models can also be found as derelicts in various sectors.
