theres so many mods, many are outdated, obsolete etc. i just need help picking out mods that add new ships, new systems, and something that other NPC empires use them selves as well, something to make the universe more alive and more challanging.

anyone able to give me any suggestions?

CWIR answer to most of your criterias, and adds many more things as well. (ships, challenge, wars, NPC expansions, xenon rampage, destructible stations, etc.)
I suggest looking up the wiki page of the mod and the mod's thread on this forum before you get started.

As for new ships/systems, you might want to check NZ-Wanderer's list. A personal suggestion (compatible with CWIR if you get the right files) would be "Lost Sectors". (New ships, sectors, factions, weapons & equipment, etc.)

New ships in both CWIR and Lost Sector are used actively by NPC factions.

Plus, "Silence you all", for sanity's sake.

That's up to you.

If you want to try CWIR, it is not compatible with the campaign. It can be installed once the campaign is finished, however. In DeVries, you won't get the special URV forge and the post campaign NPC stations, but you will still get the extra NPC shipyard, along with other more useful NPC stations.

I know there are mods that allow you to get the URV forge added to the canteran' CV build list, but I'm pretty sure it will end up conflicting with CWIR, where the canteran's builder is already altered. I don't know for sure, though. Someone with actual modding skills might give you an exact answer. I'm just speculating.

(However, you could always start a fresh game with the URV-forge mod, build the station, then switch mods. It should work, I think.)

As for the mods that will build the other DV stations, I think they are actually gamestarts. I don't think any extra stations will get built otherwise. Here's the list of what you would miss.
With CWIR, You still get the extra shipyard, and in most games I've played a few OL and AL factions have built a few stations near the jumpgates to their respective systems. RoC itself will get a construction ship along with a few metal workyards and crystal suppliers.

Simoom's Lantern has an option for adding in all the Canteran Plot Stations.

With CWIR installed, the factions are very active with building new stations, so it's not really necessary. The sectors where the plot stations are normally located usually get taken over by Xenon if those stations aren't there.
