Removed skills changes


This might be a stupid question but, are we talking about the SS+ skill bonuses?

Both the change to XP rate/skill points that was in previous versions, and the new skills and skill balance changes.  All skill changes are gone.

Just had to drop in to say thanks so much!! for your continued efforts!! it's so v.much appreciated, takes Starsector as a great game to an epic one with quality of your mods!

Hope you'll get chance to update your other mods so i can have a fleet of Starlight cabal & maybe see IG Eagle's in the future too?

Cheers again! :)

d-mods only reduce maintenance costs if you have the Field Repairs skill at rank 3. that's a vanilla thing.

as someone who never quite followed this mod: what is the "overhauled" bounty system like?

I don't remember if it was Ship/weapon pack that did it, but there are "Famous Bounties" which you accept like a mission. They pay quite a bit, and they involve special "mod-hulls" which are alternate versions of ships (Both vanilla and modded). They start as beginning destroyer fleet level, and (with mods) can go to the borderline impossible without losing a third of your fleet.

Youtuber Nemonaemo is good to watch to see just how hard some of these can get. I believe it was his Corvus mode playthrough or season 7.

If this has been asked and answered I apologize as I must have missed it. Anywho, I tried to download and use the latest java 64 bit to take advantage of changing RAM amount, and the message I get shows that starsector will not work with anything but java 7. Is this something in SS+ or in the backbone of the game itself? Anyone else have this issue?

It's a known issue, and not mod-related. Starsector doesn't like Java 8. At all. It works for some people, but more often than not if you try to run Starsector with Java 8 it'll throw a tantrum.

Gotcha. thank you for the quick reply. Quick question then, do I need to still change the vramps folder to make mods work with the new version? Will SS+ run multiple mods or does it need Nex to be updated prior to running multiple mods again?

Not sure. XD My level of technical support is basically nil - I only knew about the Java 8 issue because it's gone around the forums a few times already.  ;) Anyway, someone more informed than me will probably be along shortly with the answer.

You will need to use an updated memory allotment and 64 bit java 7 with Starsector eventually, but I doubt that you will need it until .8.1 drops as that update is holding several mods back. Also, it will come with 64 bit java 7 instead of 32
Another thing: You don't need certain mods to use more than one mod. You only need mods like Lazy and GraphicsLibs to run mods, but those are required even if you run a single mod that needs them
