Awesome, I thought everything Mod-Related would be Dead by Now

Suggestions:
- I Think reducing the Missile Damage isn't really needed, It should have been Increased because when Fleets fight Fleets there needs to be some Bang Bang with high DMG going on, But thats just my Opinion

Another Info:

Go ahead. So long as credits are given I am perfectly fine with people using this mod.

Note that while I did reduce missile damage I also enormously increased missile capacity. Basically I improved missile ships endurance in combat while reducing their burst potential, which I felt was too much as they could far too easily oneshot ships. So far the results from testing are fairly good. AI missile ships are even better since they are no longer useless after the first 2-3 seconds of missile exchanges.

However the remote repair change was too much of a buff. I will probably nerf them to values in between. So far 2/4/8/16 are working out fairly well.

MAKE SURE YOU BACK UP YOUR ORIGINAL FILES BEFORE INSTALLING THIS MOD

New version. No huge overhauls, just some bugfixes. I noticed that the original developers made an error with their random number generator script, I could fix it, but it might result in additional problems popping up, so I left it alone for now. However the random number generator for the mod's loot tables have been fixed.

Balance was tweaked some more. The original numbers were too extreme, so I decided to reduce them a bit. Overall, the idea is that you want to use lasers against unshielded targets, but cannons against shielded targets.

I planned on doing some other changes, but a major bug with the Inoco bigship spawn script has prompted me to release this a bit early.

Patch notes:
- Fixed bug preventing end of table items from spawning
- Nerfed remote repair modules to 2/4/8/20 hp/sec
- Buffed individual repair modules to 2/4/8/16 hp/sec
- Expanded Pirate Corvette Loadouts
- Reduced Pulse Laser Cannon prevalence among Pirates
- Reduced missile storage capacity from 300% to 200%
- Increased missile damage from 50% to 75%
- Reduced projectile speed for all kinetic weapons from 200% to 150%
- Fixed bug with Inoco capital ship spawns

Good Hunting.

Awesome !

I Will try your Mod as soon as I Can

- Suggestions -
- Is it Possible to Create some kind of Robbing system?, Like Pirates will first try to Get some Money off of you and When they Don't get what they want, They will Simply Kill the Player, Is that Possible?

it would be an very Nice Features to Add.

Aside from That:
- How about some Rebels?, We hear it all the time... Hell, even the Game's name is "Star Wolves 3: Civil War", So... Where are the Rebels?, I know they are in Some lone System I've forgotten the name of, but there should be More Rebels just roaming around.

Last Suggestions:
- How about Huger Fleets?, Like some InoCo Convoy recovering Artifacts from the Border-Sectors Guarded by several Smaller Fleets or even Battleships. This would Really be Nice.

- Strike Squads!: You can see several HighTech Strike-Squad like Bomber-Wings with Cloak and Deadly Missiles roaming by on Story-Missions, So my Suggestion would be to Add them, So they can Also Roam-around in some Pirates Controlled sectors or maybe even in Enemy Territories, The NAVY seems to have Lots of 'Em, heh.

Some Questions: (Little off-topic)
Is there an Way to Increase the max merc Cap from 24 to something Higher?
Is there an functioning Way to add more than 6 Ships in an Wing without them like Breaking the AI?

Keep it Up.

This is already in the vanilla game. There is a random event where Pirates will approach you, demand money, and if you refuse then they will attack. They only attack in a single squad so usually they are only a threat to the player early game. Unfortunately buffing them up is probably not a good idea because there is no limit to how early they can spawn, infact they can technically spawn when a player has just left Hephestus with Ternie and the Hero in a broken down Mastiff.

The Civil War is between the NESF (New Empire) and the MSF (Old Empire). The New Empire is ruled by Astra whom is a pretender to the throne which is currently held by Emperor Asov.

Quote:

InoCo lacks any battleship designs, the only faction with any battleships at all are the MSF and NESF. Both use the Stalingrad design which appears in the randomcontacts script. The MSF also recently developed the Lion series, Lion MK1, Lion MK2, and Lion MK3. Lion MK1 is mainly seen with MSF Admirals like Trump and Heder and is probably the most common Lion out there. Lion MK2 is a possible player ship if they side with Alex or Admiral Trump, and can also be piloted by an NPC Admiral Trump depending on which storyline you go on. Lion MK3 is only found with the player if they side with Viper.

None of the Lions appear in the randomcontacts script, because they are extremely rare and limited production ships. Infact, a top secret MSF Project to win the war against the New Empire consisted of 9 Lion MK2s and MK3s.

As for your suggestion. There are two kinds of spawns, there are the sector spawns that are specific to each sector, and then there are the randomcontact spawns which can be found in every sector that calls them and consist of single fleets that spawn from portals, wander around a bit, then return to a portal. What you are asking for sounds like a sector spawn.

They exist. Just that, without plot power behind them they are far less deadly.

I believe I experimented with this once upon a time but I am not sure what came of it.

No.

Good Points.

Thanks for taking your Time and Answering to my Suggestions ;)

for my first Suggestion:
And yeah... Being robbed as soon you left Hephestus is pretty Shitty, I Admit that.

for my third Suggestion:
Yes I was talking about an Sector Spawn, I just had this Idea because InoCo really puts alot into Research in General, Seeing them Recovering some Stuff from somewhere would really make sense to me, And yeah You're right, InoCo doesn't really have their own Battleships, oops... The standard Equipment of InoCo fighters are probably enough of Defence for an Convoy :D.

What is going on in your screenshot? I noticed you have more than 6 pilots listed in your game, I remember Goblin Wizard doing research on having more than 6 pilots and got absolutly nowhere.

To update on whats going on with my mod: I did a full playthrough, there seems to be no other major issues. There was a minor issue with Triada convoys/fleets being far too easy to dispatch, so I solved it by doubling the number of potential squads that can be escorting a Triada ship.

I also decided to nerf the blast radius of the T3 Torpedo by 25%, as it was far too large, both making it overpowered against Active ECM and very dangerous for friendlies. I found that Hrimthurs with T3 torpedoes were far more likely to kill itself and other friendlies than enemies unfortunately.

The Result ended up me Dying of laughter, because this is pretty damn funny to have 19 Lion's just flying around and being able to command them is even Better.

I did actually saw that the AI can actually handle up to 7 Ships in an Squad without Breaking, Pretty interesting.

-Good to hear that your Mod does work, Can't say that to my Mod unfortunately. (Unofficial) ;|

-Oh and yeah, Good thing that you nerfed the Torps, in the Lategame I mostly decided to Try out Typical Squads from Factions and that, My favourite always was the Navy's Bomber Squad (3 Hrimthurs, 1 Trident) But... the only Problem to that was the High Suicide rate that my Pilots have gone through because of the Torpedos ^^.

If I remember correctly, the problem that Goblin had was that he was unable to make the pilot skill allocation screen display more than 6 pilots.

The Invincible is a pretty lousy ship. It has an insane amount of HP and Shields, mainly because it appears as a boss battle for MSF Players, but it has no GK Cannons which means its ability to deal out damage is nonexistant. It lost pretty badly to my MSF Supply Ship which only has a single GK Gun slot. But I buffed the Invincible's loadout enormously that hopefully you need more than your mothership to take it down.
