Mod Information
Mod Version 4.0
Creator Finalizer
Number of ships 31

U-Series is a modded version of Team Mode developed by Finalizer. The U-Series is an entire ship tree based off of the Vanilla mode Tier 5 U-Sniper ship model. Currently the most popular mod in Modding Space, U-Series gameplay is incredibly fast-paced, strategic, and intense, with rounds lasting an average of 30 minutes. The maps in this game mode are handpicked by Finalizer, with most being high density, leaving just a handful of sparse maps.

In most games, there are three major play styles:

  • Mining

These ships are typically tanky, with large ram damage and shield regen. While terrific at mining, don't discount their ability in a fight, or their base attack skills due to the all-around cannons.

  • Hit-and-Run

These ships fire medium to large damage pulses from the front, typically have high energy and shield regen, and employ the use of back firing lasers. When using these ships, never get in a prolonged close quarters fight unless the opponent is low on shield. These ships are adequate miners, though not as good as those in the miner branch.

  • Assault

These are the end-game ships and attackers. Capable of dealing large DPS and burst damage, when starting out they have low agility and are terrible miners, but become more capable as upgraded. They typically have either low shield or low shield regen compared to other ships, but make up for it in sheer burst damage.

Note: These are from my personal experience, and I realize that the info above may not fit all ships in this mod. I wrote it the way I did as they apply to the vast majority. Tier 7 ships are exempt from these descriptions, as are Tiers 1 and 2 as people mainly skip these without upgrading

Game Mechanics[edit | edit source]

Healing Lasers- This is a new mechanic added to team mode that changed the way many people played the game! This update made more people think more tactically. This update leads to many players helping teammates by healing them. To heal you need to go to the station depot and click on the option where it says "Healing" when this is done your lasers turn into much more of a fun and laser which shows "+" when you heal a player. The amount the player gets healed by is determined by your ship and its stats. The game mechanic allows players to act more as a group and stops the problem with people flying solo and killing the whole team. Healing gives points in team mode thanks to the october 2019 update. Also the best healer is recognized in a team. The best miner and the best killer will also be recognized.

Gem-Transfer- This is a new mechanic added to team mode that allows players to drop gems for other teammates! This update furthermore allowed players to think as one and to play as one as there is no "I" in TEAM! This mechanic is done by holding "V" which allows you to drop gems by the amount you need to upgrade each stat such as a t3 can only drop 15 gems at a time while a t6 can drop 30 gems! This is a very good strategy in team mode as you can help teammates that need gems so they can upgrade, get gems and help your team get ready for danger and be prepared for opponents. This mechanic added more thought into the games and more fun things to do. Note: Gem transferring does not give points, and you may have to deal with the lazy ass gem stealers in every game. If you want to give to a specific ship, its good to first press Y>F>E. (you, follow, me). This tells them to follow you. lead them to a place with few ships, then give the gems.

Ship Rescues- This was a mechanic added to team mode just before the first Alpha Centauri Wars as a way for players to return to the game on the same team after disconnecting or leaving. If the player leaves the game while in a gem depot they will not lose their ship, credits, secondaries or points. If done outside of a depot, the player still keeps their ship upon their return(Assuming the player had extra lives), but it counts as a death.

Gem-Stealing Countermeasure-This was a mechanic added to team mode to help prevent gem stealing when mining. Before this was added, when an asteroid was destroyed anyone could come and immediately pick up the gems, leading to teammates fighting over gems from asteroids and taking gems from an asteroid they didn't mine themselves. With this mechanic only the person who dealt the most damage to an asteroid can pick up the gems immediately; other players will need to wait 2 seconds until the game allows them to pick the gems up themselves. While it drastically reduced cases of teammates gem-stealing, it is still possible to occasionally gem-steal if you are a heavier ship and you knock your teammate away from the gems they just mined.

Ships[edit | edit source]

There are 31 ships in U-Series, according to the scheme of 1-2-4-5-6-8-5. As all ships are based off the U-Sniper, they are all capable of dealing insane amounts of damage but lack shields, making even low tier ships capable of destroying some high tier ships quickly. There are a considerable amount of ships in this mod that use back-firing lasers to propel themselves at insane speeds.
