So, are we gonna need to make a special Dark.Revenant sub-dir for all of this?  Great job!

Seriously though, cool to see this stuff broken out a bit, code-wise; surely this will make overall maintenance less of a hassle (at least, until Alex breaks the core again, hah).  At least you didn't go down the Vacuum road and have to rebuild from scratch every year or so, lol!

I'd probably have de-coupled the smart Variant randomizer entirely btw; that by itself is pretty much worth having around even if the rest of this gets borked tomorrow.  But I haven't read the code for this so I have no idea whether it's pretty explicitly laid out as a series of libraries or not.

The rest of the features pretty much exist to support the variant randomizer, frankly.  Splitting it out is possible but ultimately pointless.

Smal. issue on this Threat :

The link to "Underworld" links to Tiandong Heavy Industries.

Splitting SS+ into multiple smaller parts is a good idea.
SS+ must be a mess, since you added hell a lot of stuff

My hopes are the integration of Metelson Industries,

That just made me grin ear to ear, heh.

Otherwise, Can't wait to try it out.

@ Mr. K

Neutrino is a good candidate now that the implications of SS+ aren't as exclusive.

Metelson needs to stabilize a bit first, but I could see it being added in at some point.

Also, how do I get the unofficial update for Tiandong, or is it better to wait?

Page 8 of its thread, and the unofficial update works well enough to hold folks over until I finish the real one.

Ok, thanks for replying! My post will be deleted once you see this.

Ok, I had used the one on the first page of the thread, and it worked fine (was that the unofficial one as well?)

Also, good luck and take your time modding! They're all lovely ships.

Another question. In this Dynasector, does it have changes to the player's skill?

I tested out this with mods and by itself, but I'm unable to pin point the exact error. It said Cargo Expansion missing.

So not even the skill changes are being kept? Tis a sad day indeed for carrier fleets.  Cry

Really though, awesome work. We all appreciate the amount of effort you put into all of your mods Dark. Don't kill yourself working on 'em ya hear?

Should I assume that like SS+, the standalone Target Leading Pip mod should be deactivated?
