I'm not quite sure how the game handles blueprints added mid-game, but I guess there's a chance? I've never personally tested it, however.

Alright so I loaded up the mod midgame, and as it currently stands, I am able to--
1. Load the game without any issues, so it seems save compatible and
2. Certain blueprints I've already held onto (midline ones) has a few ships introduced by this mod. I haven't continued exploring yet so I can't say whether or not do yuri blueprints have any drop chance, will give an update after further testing.

update: so I haven't found any yuri blueprints yet since I haven't explored planets-- however, some vanilla factions are making use of yuri-related ships + occasional shipwrecks that are told by storytellers from the local bar include yuri ships.

When playing Nexerlin with Yuri XP, I noticed that ships with D-mods barely have a purchase price reduction, like roughly 100 credits per D-mod for a 50k ship.  Also, the variety of ships available for purchase was very limited, there's like 15 combat freighters and a handful of frigates.  But almost entirely freighters.  Furthermore, there are 3 missile launchers for sale, 2 fighters, and that's it, no other weapons.  So I couldn't really try it out...

It's funny when a pirate base puts in an urgent request for J-POP CDs, though!

Oh, that's interesting to hear! In that case, it's quite likely that the blueprints themselves could also be generated randomly. Note however that there are two blueprints for the full YRXP catalogue, and one is markedly rarer than the other. Though I suppose there is no other way but to put your faith in the RNG.

The D-mods and their effects are handled by the Starsector engine and I have made no (conscious) input on how they work with YRXP. The same goes with the spawning of ships, though I guessed some time ago that they might have been tied to a planet's size and output of ship hulls. In which case with some patience, you might find your luck, because in the recent versions of YRXP, I added an event that fires, I think a year or so into a game, which upgrades the Yuri home system pretty much across the board. If my guess was right, it should help with spawning the higher-level ships, weapons and mods at greater frequency.

Can anyone tell me how to beat a full stack of Caparice?

I can even approach them due to the sheer amount of missiles and other stuff they throw from across the field

1. Lots of PD with no travel time like burst PD,
2. lots of PD AI hullmod
3. Most yuri ships take extra damage from frag
4. Ablative interceptor and fighters
5. If you have Nex, send an invasion fleet in front and wait for them to kill everyone, don't get involved.
6. Depending on your mods, get weapons like the kladeoscope that have no concept of turn speed and can shoot 5 things at once, or other similar weapons.
7. Royal Azalea has prism weapons, the smalls and mediums are really really good PD.

Yuri ships don't stack up well against high-tech fleets, especially shield-tanking Paragons. Just... don't send one in alone or it'll get swarmed. High-intensity lasers will be very useful.

Also to expand on the post above, in general, during battles, Yuri > Aria > Royal Azalea > Yuri. Or, at least, that's was the general rule I was going for when designing the latter factions' rosters.

I only have low tech ships :(. It is impossible to beat them. They spam those long range missiles non stop from all sides so if you don't have full shield cover you're screwed :/

Edit: There is an issue when Caparice ships retreat the leave their drones scattered all over the map, the battle can't end until all drones are destroyed. Is it possible to make the drone auto destruct when their parent ship leaves the map?

Found an issue where if you enter a certain, uninhabited system with the hullmod interstellar mall the game crashes. Easily managed to bypass this by removing the given hullmod, just letting you know incase you'd prefer to have it fixed.

Heya! I've just recently started a run with this mod, and so far its been fun. However, I'm having a bit of an issue with the void warfare doctrine mod. It says that it'll double the amount of missile ammo if you've got the commissioned crew mod installed and only use the mod's missiles on the ship but this doesn't seem to activate for me? Are there any other conditions that need to be met?

Since i have fallen into the Hololive Hole, this mod has become one of my favorites as of late.

I wish someone made a Hololive Portraits Pack, or the portraits of Hololive are added to this mod, it would make a lot of sense.

Been really liking the mod, one thing that feels kinda off, is the sprite for the Last Smile ICBM (pretty much my favorite weapon i've got my hands on) and checking the files i can see that it's basically just the aurora missile but scaled up to twice the size.
The only other thing i'd like to see in the mod is some sort of medium and/or large kinetic missile pod, I do get that you might have not added such a weapon for balance reasons, but it could be a nice addition.


I'm having a bit of an issue with the void warfare doctrine mod. It says that it'll double the amount of missile ammo if you've got the commissioned crew mod installed and only use the mod's missiles on the ship but this doesn't seem to activate for me? Are there any other conditions that need to be met?

I don't have commissioned crews installed (so i just have the core-mod version of the missile rack hullmod) but: I've found that the hullmod sometimes stops giving the bonus missile ammo if *any* non-yuri weapon is mounted on the ship, not just missiles. Which might be a bug?

I'm fairly certain that's not it. Whenever I do a playthrough I tend to focus on the content form one faction mod, so I wasn't using any non-Yuri weapons at all, and I'm fairly certain it doesn't care about ship-mods, right?

Overall, I'm really enjoying the mod. I'm stil not entirely certain if its ridiculously OP or just differently balanced. There was a period in my playthrough where my fairly light fleet would cut through enemy fleets like a hot knife through butter, but that might just have been an artifact of the long-range and missile focus allowing for very effective focus-fire in the same way carrier-spam works, and by now I've found challenges that will do something similar to me, cutting through my fleet in fairly little time, with my  fleet only knocking out a couple of light frigates.
