Requires Latest LazyLib Utility Mod Active to run. Download LazyLib here.
Requires Latest ShaderLib Utility Mod Active to run. Download ShaderLib here.
Requires Modified vmparams file to load any game.
Open your Stasector directory, edit the vmparams file notepad, inside it replace -Xms512m -Xmx512m with -Xms512m -Xmx1024m.
For Mac users, the file to change is Contents/MacOS/starsector_mac.sh.
Also helps to put jre 64bit in the main Starsector folder, instead of the vanilla 32bit version if you have a 64bit OS http://java.com/en/download/manual.jsp.


Collection of the best (imho) Mods, in both quality and lore, in a single Mod. All the Factions are perfectly integrated and have relations with each other.
I tried not disrupting the vanilla Starsector feel, enhancing some aspect of it for greater difficulty and achievement feel.
The selection of Mods is based on overall balance, sprite quality and lore quality, compared to vanilla.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Features

The selected factions and mods, placed in a vanilla Sector (vanilla systems + modded systems) .
Choose your Journey, be independent, join a faction, be an overlord with your own followers.
Solid (and expandable) bounty system for all factions.
Abstraction system, allowing an unprecedented number of fleets to fly around the sector with minimal performance loss.
Complex and rewarding Craft System with a lot of new and interesting resources, like Blueprints.
Completely reworked Loot System.
Completely reworked Spawn System with an infinite amount of new variants for every ships, thanks to my variant randomizer, and very new and variegated fleets.
All fleets now have Levels and skill points, like players and generally move around a lot more from system to system.
Stations are now Dynamic through production and trade.
New amazing graphic effects thanks to Dark Revenant!

Notes

Most of the mod's features need to be referenced in internal lists so any other added mods sadly won't be able to use em.
When submitting feedback, please remember to post U'sS version and game version (also please provide .log and\or savefile if needed).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
General Suggestions for Mod Integration

Use this folder structure: [graphics\modname\ships... & sounds\modname\fx...] instead of [graphics\ships... & sounds\fx...]
Name your hulls\".ship" files like: "modname_shipname.ship", "not shipname.ship"
Name your missions\"mission" folders like: "modname_mission", not "mission"
Set a "shipNameSources" in the world\factions\".faction" file: "shipNameSources":{"GREEK":1},

Would you be so kind to add my mod in there ;D? Unless It's too troublesome for that.

I don't want to be rude, but right now TimCORP don't quite satisfy the requirements to get into this compilation. The main reason is the lack of a "faction" feel to the set of TimCORP ships, that are in several different styles. If the mod manage to get this thing right I'll surely consider putting it in!

Nonetheless you did a good job on your mod.

- Uomoz out ;)

Thanks :), well it is having many different art styles because... I wanted to do something unique, just to symbolise how different the design divisons think, and yet how they use all of them. But there will be a following art style from here on, ;).  (Main  reason for the differing artstyles is that the newest ones are not done by the same artist as before).

This should be quite useful to a lot of people wanting an enhanced gameplay experience that does not mess with the game's balance - nice idea and good luck with it! Maybe my Positron faction will be able to sneak in here some day? I guess that's up to me, too. :P

I'd like to consider every faction eligible to enter the mod. The only real requirements to them is have "character", balance and a proper artstyle. The purpose of this mod is to seamlessly integrate all this interesting (not lore-breaking) factions together, adjusting the spawn rate (because the vanilla spawn rates make the system a little bit messy when there are 10 different spawn points).

Corsairs of Corvus is not quite yet on the standard of the currently added factions (both lore wise and balance wise), but I will surely consider putting them in when the Mod is more solid! Nontheless kudos to medikohl and DeathSG for their work on those ships!

Thank you! Feel free to comment or suggest any improvement!

Wait, when you said in the qualification that a mod has to have "character", did you mean character like in, having specific fleets, ships or artstyle?

I'd assume a mod with "character" is a mod that fits in well with the core game from both art and gameplay perspectives.

Oo, that sounds awesome. Can't wait.

I've been tweaking the balance for a while, just about ready on that aspect.
if anyone wants to make some lore that would be fine.
