So, downloaded the latest version but when I try to start it up it I get this error



I've checked and the xlu_manganate.ship file is in the hulls folder, so I don't know what the source of the issue is.

Edit: Okay so, after deleting and reinstalling the mod, I think the issue is that it is still expecting the manganate to be there? the one I saw was from a previous installation and with the mod reinstalled it isn't there, but it's still throwing up an error for it not being there.

Edit2: I deleted and reinstalled it a second time... and it worked this time. No idea why.

A little late and apologies for that minor shipyard bug. Hopefully it's gone this time.

Really enjoy this mod!  The ships can punch above their weight but with their flux stats being so terrible I feel their deployment points are justified.  As even their super caps don't stack up flux wise to other heavy ships.  The only one that does is the prototype battlecruiser but that's an exception to the majority of the fleet as a whole that's quite fun.  Love the missile spam that can be done :D

The Manganate was actually the first capital ever made into the XLU and yeah, it's pretty dated with the intended goals in mind on how it functions as a battleship. There's been thoughts of its removal since the design isn't fully established after the faction settled, but it does get a replacement that probably keeps what the Manganate made boasting (unintentionally) for.

The Hyvel Twin Driver claims to be an area point defense when it's a Gauss Cannon sidegrade. It also costs far too much flux for what it does.

Fixed in this update. Probably with promises... ?  :-[

Probably with less bugs this time.

Honestly a bit sad to see the Manganate being removed.  It was pretty neat as a special really rare ship that only would show up now and then.  As it is nice when factions have rare semi one off ships :P  Maybe change it a bit and add it back in as an IBB ship?  As that could be a nifty way to do it.  Have it be a remnant from the start of the faction that you could pick up after fighting it as a one off ship?

Yes, it’s strange that they removed Manganate, a rather harmless ship much weaker than overslaut. I think the more battleships the better (yes I am a fan of battleships, not frigates) and I really hope that Manganate will return, 3 time bigger, consisting of many parts, and with 20 large gun slots (or this one will be another ship, not so important).

Also the warfrieght has a weird issue.  Even if i prioritize it in my doctrine it almost never gets used as a freighter even though it's the only prioritized freighter.  instead random non selected freighters gets used.

Automated ship production is in a pretty odd state to me as well. I don't see odd coding to why the priority behaves this way despite the ship is assigned accordingly and, comparatively to Vanilla, is in the appropriate spot in the ship roles file.

I was pretty conflicted to decide whether to keep the Manganate or remove it since it pertains the typical oversize design it holds. But after realizing that it functions too bizarrely for an Oversized Conquest with a center built-in gun, I just had to remove it.

Probably reconsidering it back but not sure when but I'll get back to it.

More Dakka, no problems.

Just wanted to report a possible error with the planets in the Phosmon star system.  None of the planets have an established population.  I have to use console controls to give them population conditions.

Also the Terran world in Nemvis star system should probably come with the regional_capital condition as this seems to make sense that this is the XLU's main homeworld.

Hello

Sorry for my talk, I'm French.  ::)

I encountered a problem with the Anthracite. when I try to go into test battle, the games crash. Which is bizzard because I think I had to fight this ship a bit before producing it. Do you know if there is a problem with this ship? I have a lot of other mods too. Do you know if certain its in conflict with yours?

Otherwise, thank you very much for this work! He is great !

I do believe it's more on the issues regarding modular ships, which is still pretty wonky in the current vanilla of the game. I'll see to it if there are fixes for them when they improve.

Done... ish. I'll be looking into it as the new script for Nemvis is implemented, this regards to the faction exclusives for Blue's industries.

The zip file may give some allowance for extracting the files.

This will break saves. Though, it fixes the campaign entirely if you do start it again, since the capital was missing its appropriate spot.

Something about the XLU starfortress has broken down. The one over vargan is constantly in a "being repaired" state even though it is operational in the colony info.

Done. You should be able to get the station visually running again with the new download and startup. I'm sorry about the mishap.  :'(

Not sure if it actually does breaks saves as I've updated the mod and the save works fine so far, but gonna restart since the Nemvis system seems to be missing, no biggie methinks.

Also is reusing the same Seed fine? if you find a good system to colonize and use etc etc

Edit: If the save isn't broken from this update, Should I keep on playing the same save with the current progress or should I start a new game if the system really is missing and itd be better in the long term?
