[0.9.1a] Boardable Unboardables.
« on: June 16, 2019, 12:03:15 AM »

Hello! Back again with another utility mod.

This one is called Boardable Unboardables. This bonehead simple utility mod simply overrides the UNBOARDABLE tag on the vanilla ships that have it by removing it. This means that, pending your ability to beat them down in combat and your luck with RNGesus, you too may wind up flying with various [REDACTED] in your fleet.

How are you actually commanding these ships? How does your character have the expertise to salvage them? That's up to you! For my money, I just say that either their stock flight controller was rewritten by an Alpha Core friendly to me that I'm carrying with me, or, if I assign an officer, we vacuum-seal them into a skintight spacesuit full of nanites and liquid breathing medium which we seal into a pod on the [REDACTED] somewhere and they operate the ship Shadowrun Rigger-style.

Anyway, this mod is surely to slightly abrade a lore purist's sense of purism since I have implemented absolutely nothing in the way of required extra skills or resources to salvage and repurpose these ships, and it'll probably not do great things for a balance purist's sense of balance. If you're fine with that and just want to plug yourself into a [REDACTED] flight-deck cruiser and go blow ships up... This mod may be for you.

Hello,

this mod looks very nice. Getting some of those sweet REDACTED or even some of the older droneships would be great. Will try out your mod today. Thank you for making this.

Hey, I was just wondering, how does this mod interact with ships with Vast Bulk (ships with multiple parts that can each break, such as stations or one of that huge derelict ship)? I would imagine maybe your officers can, but you can't? If you can that'd be sick. ;D
