Can be safely added and removed from existing saves.

This mini-mod only changes Pilums. They have their old high speed, but turn and accelerate slowly making them very easy to dodge. They won't create huge deathballs like vanilla Pilums, but they are reasonably effective.

Credit goes to Zibywan for coming up with these stats. His original post can be found here: Linky

Don't worry, I'm still making progress on the Roider Union. I'm just really slow at making sprites so that bogs it down.

Edit: I found one bug from this mini-mod that might crop up if you apply it to an existing game, though this may be because I had the old version of the mod with a different ID enabled and saved with the game. The bug is that pirate Fire Support Condors have no weapons. I expect this bug extends to other variants with Pilums, and I also expect it to sort itself out as the existing ships get replaced by freshly spawned ships.

Following that Zibywan said you added more speed while reducing turn rate? That's awesome to me Cheesy
I've always been using pilums due to having no ammo, but always felt underwelming to use them unless spammed by multiple ships because of them being so slow that a single PD laser could bring them down at ease...

You should speak to a moderator about posting your mod under the Mod Index, it would be a lot easier for people to notice it Smiley

Could i request the download somewhere else please? Github or bitbucket or dropbox or puush or google drive are all free with less ads and cruft than megaupload, since its a mod.  Sadly mega doesnt seem to work for me

Request granted! Cheesy

I've made bitbucket the main download and left mediafire as a mirror. I haven't used bitbucket before so hopefully that will be all good.

Very few problems can't be solved with gratuitous violence and epic explosions.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Eagles and Falcons on fire off the L5 of Sindria. I watched Tachyon beams glitter in the dark near the Perseus Nebula...

I love minimods and I especially love this one. If you're on the discord channel you could post this in the mod updates subchannel there to spread the good news, or if not I could post it for you with your permission Smiley

Nice hit with the new stats.

Some time ago i modded small (1 tube) and large (5 tube) Pilums to complement the medium one. It is not best in terms of balance with stock pilums, but with your stats even small launchers are fairly usable, without becoming overpowered.

If you want i can publish link to your mod with small and large launchers added.

BTW: I also had versions with different color markings housing shrapnel warhead, salvo of 3 emp bomblets or single swarmer SRM. Stopped updating them somewhere around 6.3, as various mods offered more interesting alternatives.

Thanks. Smiley

I think a mod like that would deserve its own thread. Even with Zibywan's stats, though, I worry that a small LRM weapon with anything like the Pilum's damage will always be too powerful simply due to how common small missile mounts are across a fleet.
