to be harsher, yes? Hey Alex the consensus seems to be the storms need to be harsher, could you add hyperspace hurricanes and hyperspace tsunami to the next update?

also make crossing the event horizon instantly lethal and/or there's another starmap inside the event horizon and/or you can go into red space where you meet a bunch of peaceful probes that are also simultaneously murderous.

thanks.

to be fair nobody crosses the event horizon, or even enters a star, they just go around the star in 3d space, which on the 2d display looks like ur in (over) them

Any chance of making hyperstorms moddable? I know most people like them the way they are, but there's some of us who would like to modify how harsh they are.

A quick note: they're 100% moddable. Just requires more than editing a text file.

Demons and space monsters attacks please; I also modded infernum back; it does sounds more unique than generic fuel.

"generic fuel" in Starsector is still made of anti-matter. Tongue

Hell, I'm still onboard for some proper aliens (not just AI War stuff) and/or some hyperspace horrors with bio weapons or somthing!

A tiny thing that popped to my mind: will the heavy and light autocannons get new sprites at some point? There's nothing wrong with them per se, but if you compare them to the machine gun family, it's a little bit funny when you notice that the barrels are either very similar in size (light versions), or larger on the machine gun (heavy versions).

Removed "destroyed weapon mounts" hullmod; was more confusing than clarifying the matter

Does this mean that it is, or is not clear when a d-mod has removed or downsized weapon mounts?

I don't know all the base mounts off by heart, but I have found some ships to be missing the normal hard points (eg, I think one of the wolf variants is missing the medium energy).

I think the gist of it is; it is not as immediately clear (you have to examine each hull for mounts rather than quick inspection of D-Mods) BUT this removes a lot of confusion with the procedural [D] ships being fundamentally different than the non-procedural old-[D] ships.

Non-procedural inferior ships, with non-cleanable downsides, now get independent signifiers e.g. [P] for [P]irate.

Slight lack in immediate clarity, at a cost to much greater overall clarity and less chance of confusion as the game mechanics play out.

Are planetside operations planned? Ruined/worlds and decivilized planets seem like that, the lore also points to it. Might give marines something to do.

Ahhh, right; I think I get you. Now, as long as it's a [D] ship it's possible to restore it back to full operations. [P] and other variants are essentially different hulls and cannot always be brought up to the standard variant spec.

Thanks!

There's still a [D] Sunder that that has 3 medium energy instead of 2 medium & 1 large. But I think that's the only remaining exception.

Restoring the Sunder gives its large mount back.

Hammerhead (D) with 85 OP does not upgrade normal Hammerhead with 95 OP, but remains itself with 85 OP and without the (D) mods.  This was reported a while back (and probably fixed for later).
