Well, this whole thing made actually finally join the community, after I long used your assets.

Sad to not be able to use the additional ships of the DSUCP though...
Do you have any plans on adding some of these later on? Some of the craft were pretty outdated.

EDIT: Also, I wish I could help you more, but I am a Journalist. The only thing I could do, was show your work to the world in some way...

Honestly, we don't know yet.
Our first priority right now is to move ahead with the XWAU and implement some much needed improvements. Whenever that is all done there is talk about offering up an additional crafts pack that would include crafts of the DSCUP. Though this is all still in the very early planning stages and we have no idea what crafts would be included or if it's even sensible to do this from the XWAU. We will certainly not update any of those crafts anytime soon. There's still plenty left to do for the 'vanilla' XWA models. And looking at some of the older models in the XWAU it would make more sense to upgrade those again as well.

Hi guys just returning after a long hiatus when my old PC died around 3 years ago and just wanted to say you've got my support! I missed what happened with Darksaber, sorry to ask this but is there a thread I can read to catch up on the details? Thanks and all the best
Most of what happened did so team-internally and will not be made public. The official post about the issue is here:

Oh I see in that case I apologie for asking and I won't ask again and let's keep going on with the project. AD ASTRA! Thanks for answering and I hope DS is ok.

Pity. I always liked Darksaber, but I did have a problem with his seeming inability to take constructive criticism, which always made me wonder if he was dealing with personal stuff.

oh no I am using @Justagai's XWA MP that's based on @Darksaber's DSUCP and I definitely preferred their branch. Now both of them seem to be disappeared. Sad to read :(

When I created my Battle of Yavin shipset, he got pissed because he thought my campaign didn't work with any of HIS mods. It was a mistake on my part, as I realized after, it would work but some slots would have to be overwritten if using the DSUCP. I had no idea what the issue was. I'm like "really dude?" It just sounded like a sense of entitlement.

I've been here since 2002, I've never had an issue with him until that point, but I made sure to avoid any issues with him. I don't get it.

I missed being the PR guy, but I feel it did help me prepare for my bowling media career, and that has taught me a few things I hope I can bring back to my own X-Wing/SWS group. Great to see this survived me not being around. And if there's any way I can assist, please LMK. 😎

I was watching some gameplay footage of Squadrons today, which I can't run on my computer, so I thought I'd check to see if there was a new update to the DSUCP, which led me here.

Darksaber always rubbed me the wrong way. I felt like I couldn't even ask a simple question here without him trying to belittle and condescend me, which is the main reason I've never been very active in this community. But for him to purposefully sabotage his own mods as a huge middle finger to an entire community of gamers really takes the cake, and speaks volumes about his depravity. Luckily I still have the files for the TIE Royal Guard Interceptor (my most favorite ship) backed up.

Anyway, apparently it's been 4 months since this all went down, and all those ships are still unavailable to download. I can't begin to understand why, but I've lurked here long enough to know not to ask about it, or Darksaber will threaten to ban me. Oh wait...
