fantastic work on the mod, i especially like red loki.

*there is a typo in your changelog; you have red loki listed twice*

What can I say, simply fabulous mods. I've DLed and tried them out but I'm in the middle of a lecture so not a very thorough experience. I can only say the sprites are great as usual.

I'll add more once I fully tested this.

EDIT:
Further comments...
GS: I'm satisfied, not much to say.
RL: Same as above. (The robot is awesome.)
LB: The Revanent is much more useful, with the movable gun and armor plate. It now fits the walking-tank title well. The devil's fork is also a very cool weapon to wield, feels very good too. The zombie summoning staff is great as it is. I would suggest that make the 'Bone' weapon a gib for some of the LB actors/weapons. That way, others can salvage whatever is left of their former comrade as a last ditch weapon. I was quite surprised that you actually gave the Revenant such a wide firing arc now, though.
SA: Great sprites, good feeling using them too. I would say the vanilla blaster visual effect is pathetic. It would be nice if you can spice it up a bit. Not make it all glowy and sparky, but just add some minor touches to make it look less like a plain white line.

Genius! I've never thought of that.

I've received that suggestion countless times during testing, and I've played with a variety of ways to improve it. The issue is that it's so hard to make an effect match when the particle speeds away at 500 ppf (pixels per frame). Even the smaller effects get left behind. I will keep trying, though, and some sort of additional effect will be added before the pack is finished.

I have plans to make the Shadow Aspect the largest pack of all four of them, and then bring the rest up to speed with a standard count of actors, weapons, tools, bombs, bunker modules, and craft that will be used for all future packs. This will be easier done than said, as I have plenty of ideas in store.
I will begin a weekly update schedule - every Friday starting this week, the pack will be updated. No pack will be untouched.
After the Shadow Aspect pack is completed, the Techion pack begins, to be followed by the Dummies, simply because I feel they are the most difficult to expand upon. The Dummies, being factory robots, are all about efficiency, and that is exactly what they have - one gun that perfectly fills each role. While the Ronin have dozens of handguns (none of which are used), the Dummies have the Nail Pistol or the Rail Pistol, each with their own distinct use. To improve or add to that would be very difficult - which is why I may have to go lighter on the weapons in favor of a more actor-, craft-, or module-heavy expansion.

Although you need to fix the Heavy Shotgun offsets. They look horrible.

This is a major boost for current CC.
As I said before, installing this pack makes CC feel complete.
Keep the epicness up, and I hope to see more innovative bunker modules in here.

This is amazing as usual.
I would suggest that the rotary laser have a longer reload time for balance sake, what with its already godly fire rate and accuracy.
Also, please change the "\" to "/" in AS.ini, DS.ini, and MGT.ini.
"\" doesn't work with Macs (or Linux I have heard) and they are becoming a pain to change every update.

good new faction. It's a little uninteresting in comparison to the other factions though, but the clean, sterile aesthetic of trade star makes that kind of unavoidable. I would suggest that you make the lasers have a bit of glow to the shots, make them a light blue or something, though I know you made them white because the vanilla lasers are white.Perhaps some sort of glowing part on the weapon itself, or as the expelled cartridge. The pistol and carbine are rather flat and uninteresting in their sprites in general. Play wise I like it, but the machine gun and shotgun seem a little out of place with the other, more high tech weapons.

The necrostaff is cool, but the problem I have is that the summoned zombies always attack me, making it a bit hard to recommend to my helpless soldiers. I like how the devil's fork functions now, but I still think it needs a bit more visual flair, rather then simple, colorless particles; some flame would be fitting for the devil's fork. The undead brigadier is still very weak; during my play testing he gibbed violently by being bopped lightly on the head by a falling bomb or bumped into by another actor.

Nice additions, but you still have orange, yellow, indigo, and violet factions to do! Just kidding, but these things are awesome, I especially like the White faction.

I am trying to use this on a mac, it's B24, but it doesn't work, each of the factions closes CC while it's loading up. Am I missing something here?
