Just finished last IBB mission. Wow, what a ride. In my case the hardest bounty was not the last one though, it was El Psi. Had to hit and retreat with Odysseys until most of his fleet was gone, then finished him off. And Hot Potato was ridiculously fun!

I have this mod basically just for the Victory class

I love this damned ship. Just melts shields with a bunch of HVDs, then transition to the autocannons to melt ships.

El Psi is widely accepted as the hardest bounty (to do without major losses) due to the ability of the ship to melt your captitals in seconds. The final bounty by contrast is just "regular" (though stronger) capitals.

El Psi sporeship have giant Gungir-like cannons. If your ship cant handle flux and shields, they're doomed.

Bigger battlesize is easier as:
1. IBB unique ships spawn over the regular deployment limits.
2. It's easier to focus firepower with more ships.

Hi, I love this mod. I have a bug to report. Under some circumstances, Walls get extreme range.

https://youtu.be/906-BiTx620

As you can see from the video, the Wall's HVD has about 3000 range in the first test. I brought in a Conquest to compare, its HVDs are the normal 1600 with ITU. (Or slightly more with officer)

Then in the second test (1:30), I started with the Conquest and brought in the Wall as reinforcement. The Wall's range appears to be normal. It seems the Wall starting combat on the field gives it extreme range, but if it comes in from the bottom of the screen it has normal range. The same thing occurs if I join an ongoing battle (it gets extreme range) vs start a battle (normal range).

@Sinosauropteryx: Sorry about the trouble. The extreme ranges in the spore fight are something I need to fix. Ruthless sector doubles the range of all domain drones in a way that is only intended for fights against their faction, and causes the spore bounty fight to be far more difficult than it should be. The range increase can be changed by editing rangeMultForAutomatedDefenses in RUTHLESS_SECTOR_OPTIONS.ini. A far better solution is in the works, so I'll be removing the range bonus soon.

Gonna make a drive-by post here. Out of all ships in the IBB rewards, the only one I kept throughout the entire game for its absolutely stellar performance, reliability and flat-out superior design to anything else, without question, is the Fang. What a brilliant ship. Thanks so much for this. I named mine after a friend that doesn't even play Starsector, and even they cheer it on when I send it into some wacky six invasion fleet fight.

How do I start the IBB missions?  I installed this mod part way through a play through as I forgot it when I started.

Also what exactly does Extreme Modification do?  Does it increase malfunction chance at low CR?  Or does it mean I have malfunction chance at any CR?  As when I'm running simulations after the refit I'm not seeing any malfunctions happen so I don't know what it actually does.

You can find IBB mission encounters in most bars. Look for a person with bodyguards.
Extreme Modification cause non-critical malfunctions at any time, randomly. IIRC it's something like 2% chance every second, but I'm not sure. It can be useful, if you really need that extra OP, but it comes at a price.
