This thread is designed to be a one stop shop for links and quick information on mod projects. It is my hope that this can be turned into a sticky so that new people can find projects quickly.

Title: Project Hiver
Mod Version: N\A
Game Version: N\A
Release Date: N\A
Type: Large scale alteration of many game assets in the vein of a limited total conversion mod.
Link: N\A
Summary: Project Hiver is my massive experimental project which pushes the limits of what mods can do within SOTS2.
Status as of 31\03\2017: Limited Alpha available within the modding picture of the day thread. Is still being worked on but RL issues are slowing it down.
Title: Loa Gate Restriction Removal
Mod Version: V1 (Release)
Game Version: Compatible with all versions.
Release Date: Sun Jan 06, 2013 7:07 am
Type: Gameplay
Link: Removal of Loa Gate Restrictions
Summary: A very quick mod which makes the Loa gate max cube limit much higher, or outright removes it.
Status as of 31\03\2017: Folded into Project Hiver.
Title: 32 Million Color Ship mod
Mod Version: V3 (Release)
Game Version: Compatible with all versions.
Release Date: Tuesday July 10, 2013 3:21 am
Type: Graphics\Gameplay
Link: 32 Million Color Ship Mod
Summary: Changes the ships to only use the color from the Ship Color, allowing you to use the entire range of colors including black, white and so on while still being able to see them on the UI. V3 allows you to remove shine and reflections as well as the soon to be uploaded Extra Pack which contains different skins.
Status as of 31\03\2017: V4 is under construction however is folded into Project Hiver so is not a seperate download.
Title: Star System Generation Mod
Mod Version: V1 (Public Beta)
Game Version: Compatible with all versions.
Release Date: My memory ain't that good.
Type: Gameplay
Link: Star System Generation Mod
Summary: When you pick a map, unless the systems are defined manually they are always done by a random generator. This is why you can sometimes play the same map twice yet have a totally different set of planets and star sizes. This mod gives you three (soon to be four) preset versions to try, as well as teaching you how to do such yourself.
Status as of 31\03\2017: Unchanged as its still stable and fully usable.
Title: The Inflated Guide to modding Ships and Weapons
Mod Version: N\A
Game Version: N\A
Release Date: My memory ain't that good.
Type: Guide
Link: The inflated guide to modding ships and weapon files
Summary: A somewhat extensive (and as usual, incomplete...) guide to what almost every single line means within the ship, turret and weapon files actually mean. If you plan on modding, I highly suggest at least reading this.
Status as of 31\03\2017: Sometimes I get lazy and forget to finish things. This one of them.
Title: How to modify factions using Material.xml~ files
Mod Version: N\A
Game Version: N\A
Release Date: My memory ain't that good.
Type: Guide
Link: How to modify factions using Material.xml~ files
Summary: Details how you can attempt to change the colors of your ships, such as changing its reflective properties, the color of glass and giving ships a neon glow and more.
Status as of 31\03\2017: Nothing more to add to this.

Title: Sots2qkeys
Mod Version: Release 35b
Game Version: 2.0.24917.3 (semi independent of game version)
Release Date: Release 1 ~2012/04/14. Release 35b 2013/03/11. (beta) Release 36i 2013/06/13. (alpha) Release 37d 2013/12/17.
Type: Gameplay
Link: sots2qkeys... (hotkeys for sots2)
Summary: Originally started before there were hotkeys in sots2, now has evolved to handle various automation such as filling BR carriers in a fleet, quick save via one key press which includes current turn number, or allowing for building several ships in a run. There are still some non-configurable hotkeys like tying ESC and Enter to various dialog Cancel/OK but most are use configurable with built in utility. Works best in full screen windowed mode, should remain functional in windowed mode but can be slow in full screen mode due to quirks in how windows Vista+ handles that. Does NOT hook sots2 in any way. Under fairly constant development with minimal release testing (virtually no testing to ensure all features work on systems other than my own) but by it's nature the worst result is some feature or another doesn't work.
