Note about DynaSector
DynaSector is necessary for debris/salvage adjustments to certain Imperium campaign features.  Without certain features added by DynaSector, significantly more gear is possible to salvage than is actually intended, which can negatively impact balance and your enjoyment of the game.  If you don't like certain changes introduced by DynaSector, (nearly) all of them can be turned off in DYNASECTOR_OPTIONS.ini.


Contents
Underworld seeks to flesh out the pirates and criminal elements in Starsector.  Included are numerous new ships, the Starlight Cabal faction, Cabal skins, an IBB battle featuring a unique Astral, a new star system, and numerous campaign features.

Starlight Cabal

HELMUT and MesoTroniK

The Starlight Cabal is an exclusive cult of like-minded entrepreneurs and inheritors with deep ties to the Tri-Tachyon Corporation. Believing that the future of mankind lay in complete technological synthesis, the Cabal ostensibly seeks to bring a subset of humanity to a higher, euphoric state of being. However, to attain ascension, the price is steep. In fact, the cost is literal; tremendous periodic payments are paid directly to the Cabal hedge fund for the privilege of membership. This has led skeptics to mock the Cabal as an elaborate scam, even though many such skeptics have abruptly vanished after voicing their opinion.

The Starlight Cabal enforces a doctrine of theft and aggression, broadly engaging in acts of piracy and terrorism. Targets are generally chosen by direct command from the Starlight Council for reasons unknown.


The Cabal are the high-tech counterparts of pirates.  While they tend to have a different attitude and accept payment to leave you alone, they definitely pose a threat to the unwary.  Cabal fleets are particularly difficult to fight due to their variety of powerful ships and weapons (especially when enabled with DynaSector), and their unique upgraded ships.

It is possible to get in good with the Cabal, gaining access to high-end markets located on some large non-military Tri-Tachyon worlds.  Be prepared to pay the fee to see their wares, however...

Oh yes. Yes please. I need more Cabal.
In fact, since before you split SSP and Cabal your work with the high-end alternative to pirates has made me wish the Luddic Path and Pirates were worked a bit more like the Cabal-- the Luddic Path in that you could (through console if nothing else) become a part of them and Pirates to make them attempt to extort you if they're just on the underside of being able to take you but you're carrying valuable cargo inside of non-dedicated (which would be out of a fight and therefor not risk being lost if one or two ships get tanked in an otherwise won fight) so as to give them a bit more wiggle room to interact with and threaten you besides chasing you down if you're weaker and running away if you're stronger-- and giving you more reason to run them down when you have the opportunity to make pirates see you as being more of a threat and less likely to harass you for extortion money

I like the new pirate ships but prefer to play without the Cabal. Has anyone had success setting "starlightCabal":false--are they supposed to still appear in the Factions screen when off?

They don't spawn.  I didn't implement anything that would remove them from the faction screen.

The Cabal Encounter music is a good bit louder than other music

eg. I was cruising along, hunting some Cabal, when suddenly SPACE DISCO MUSIC!
Oh man, please reduce the volume to vanilla music levels

I maybe speaking out of turn here but I think the Cabal music is meant to be loud and annoying. Kind of snobbish if you will.

I could have sworn DR mentioned it was supposed to be a bit over the top somewhere. I just don't remember where.

It seems appropriate in my opinion.  Imagine your fleet is flying around and minding their own business when some rich jerk in a purple Medusa flies up and wants you to fund his next ship purchase, with Space Disco blasting in the background of the comm channel while he makes his request.

Which said, he still does that even when i'm in my Conquest. With the full fleet. On my way to invade some poor faction's station

It says in OP that this is Nexerelin supported but it is not showing as an option to start in the faction. I have also not come across any if the ships, weapons etc.. but I really haven't explored much yet. Is this not a playable faction?

Try starting as a pirate. The mod is designed to be an extension to the Pirate faction. Oh,and if you want the Cabal to be friendly to you, try starting as a tritach. or... if you want to keep your faction (and save) you can hunt pirates or cabals and hope that the ship you want is captureable. and make sure you have enough marines.

So has anyone actually been able to use the cabal markets?

I have them at (81/100) cooperative and their markets still say "requires clandestine approach"

That usually means transponder off, if I'm not mistaken
