Now that Pallas Athene has convertelated the Ares sprites to .pngs I felt like someone needed to put some into Nova. So after an afternoon of hard work, I've made about a dozen ships and weapons from Ares available in Nova. You can download this little plug here. It adds the Ishiman Cruiser, Heavy Cruiser, Fighter, the Cantharan Gunship, Gaitori Fighter, Cruiser, Gunship, and Destroyer along with all their relevant weapons. There are also a number of unused weapons rlëDs in there. I also used the right sounds.
I did my best to make the ships behave like they do in Ares, but I'm basing it all off of three year old memories so please don't shoot me if it's not exactly right. Keep in mind that these ships aren't balanced for Nova, so good luck using them effectively. This is more like a technical demo anyway.
Again, you can download the plug here.
