Just a note that if you enable Prism Freeport (or use Console Commands to run the code to spawn it; don't have it on hand, had to Google it last time), the head bureaucrat of the station in the comms menu will trade blueprints with you. You can turn in blueprints and blueprint packages for points and it has a rolling selection of blueprints to buy with points.

A separate question; is there a config that determines likelihood of saturation bombardments? This current game I'm playing is about 5 cycles in and there's been maybe two locations captured and six or seven stations bombarded into uselessness, mostly by the Imperium. I'd kinda like to disable them to keep the sector from going dark since I'm not one of those nutters that takes over the whole place myself.

It is law that any specific ship you want will not be available. If it is available, it will be gone by the time you're capable of buying it.

Thanks for the tip, but I know :P Unfortunately they only seem to have like 10 for trade at a time, at least last time I swung by the station. Also, since I'm playing with a decent number of faction mods, the odds of the couple of blueprints I want from the faction I'm allied with showing up there seem to be pretty low. Plus I'm not sure how often that list of blueprints for trade refreshes, or if you trade in more blueprints you get a bigger list of trades to choose from.

Prism Freeport's blueprint exchange program is useful, but has yet to offer any of the blueprints I'm looking for from this specific faction.

I know the independent faction isn't really unified, I do like the idea of them going out and doing *** together like if a faction is bullying them too much.

Is it possible to have the indies make colonies and launch invasion fleets?

In Nexerelin/data/config/exerelinFactionConfig/independent.json:

Invasions: Set playableFaction to true*
Colonies: Add a line "colonyExpeditionChance":1 (can change the number to change the chance of them getting picked to found a new colony)

*This should make independents generally behave like other factions, but they're hardcoded in some parts of Nex so no guarantees that everything will work the same.

Is it possible to change the legality of things in invaded markets?
For example, change Recreational Drugs to legal/illegal?

Also wondering about changing player faction alignment.

can i have a small question or more like a suggestion about the respawning factions ? From what i noticed its all nice and dandy but i never actualy saw them take the base back..... would it be posible to make it so they dont actualy suicide into heavily protected star system, and instead go for some empty planet ? and start a new ? also when they fail and trust me they do a lot do they ever try it again or thats it for the whole faction ? the only way for me to actually bring somebody back is to go find decent planet build it up and then give it to the dead faction, at least that's what i saw in my playthrough. If im wrong and simply had back luck with the system in place tell me. next are the aliances i have curently a decent empire with 7 members but some random events keep damaging the reputation between them is there anything i can do to prevent that ? or is it just random ? Thank you
other then that i love the mod, also sorry for the english, its not my native language

If the market is yours, you have the free port setting. Other than that, there's no way to determine which goods are legal.
Markets taken by an NPC faction will use that faction's illegal goods settings.

Alignment: You can change it in the player.json config file in faction config folder. There's no ingame setting for this, though (nor any particular reason for it, since the player faction isn't checked for alignments when forming an alliance).

Actually four other mods have already exceeded that:



Still feels good though! ;D

Yeah, faction respawn may not work very reliably at present. Although founding a new colony may not work any better, with such a weak planet they'd probably just get re-stomped.
I'll probably review this in the future (could tie it to the rebellion mechanic when that comes back).
Thanks for the feedback!

next are the aliances i have curently a decent empire with 7 members but some random events keep damaging the reputation between them is there anything i can do to prevent that ? or is it just random ? Thank you
It's largely random, but you can make positive events more likely by doing some things to improve relations between the factions involved.
(see the diplomacy profiles in intel tab for details)

Although an alliance that big will likely have a huge dominance score, which leads to increased likelihood of negative events between them and promoting shedding of alliance members. This is by design.

There's an option in exerelin_config.json to disable the random diplomacy events between player and other factions, but this won't help with interactions between two NPC factions.

yeah no problem :) about the new olony i do have the console comands mod so what i usualy do is build it up using that and set marketsize to something like 7 or 8 so its not puny little colony you can even edit the planet itself which could help to give them decent start up location and after some testing they actualy go from there nicely, even had the new colony event when they send a colonization exepedition so if there could be a scrip that does all this gives them new planet and builds it up instantly to decent size, that could work betther then the fleets

Not sure if it has been covered in the 187 pages of this thread, but is there a way to tweak the starting settings for the random sector start?

I've spawned a dozen sectors and every time my starting system has 3-4 other factions (always including pirates and often including path). I've tried setting the inhabited worlds to 20, stations to 6, and inhabited systems to 26. 4 other factions spawned with me. And nearly every system around me has at least 3 factions 2 of which are hostile to each other. Buying/selling/doing a mission for anyone makes me KoS for the next planet over...

Is there a setting i missed to make each system be mostly the same faction or to make only 1-2 inhabited planets/stations per system at the start?

Hello, hope this post finds you well, I recently bought  Starsector and have been enjoying it quite a bit, I already have well over 100 hours into the base game and about 60 into modded.
I have done a search for what I am about to ask but for the life of me I can not figure it, my big brain hurts and no matter what I can doesn't yield the result I want and more then often just makes the game crash or unplayable.

So I am resorting to asking it here because I tier of hitting the cycle random ships button for what feels like hours on end to get the ships I want with this mod, basically what I want to be able to pick the ships I want or have a start with them, all I want is a Colossus and 2 shepherds.

if anyone could direct me on how to do this I'd be most grateful.

Thank you for your response, it is possible to do, people can reprovingly do it in non-modded star-sector, so I was hoping it was possible to do it in mods as well, as for the console command... well... you see... I have no self control and I would use it for more then just getting the ships, I know I can uninstall it but seems like a lot of work every time I restart, because I tend to restart a lot as I play on Ironman Mode and.... well autopilot into blackholes.... anyways, I guess I will just have to suffer for now until it becomes a thing.

It's probably easiest to edit Nexerelin/data/config/exerelinFactionConfig/player.json with the starting ship set you want.

Hmm, it already tries to spread out the starting homeworlds, then put markets for each faction close to its homeworld where possible. But there are ways it can break.

What's your game seed + modlist? I could try to debug it.
In the meantime, try the "Maximum inhabited planets per system" and "Maximum inhabited planets + stations per system" sliders if you haven't already.

I'm sure this has already been asked; sorry for the frustration, BUT:

Do the blueprints you sell to pirates using the mod get used? I sold a ton to them and nothing has happened for like a good year and a half. I was hoping to do a playthrough in which I befriend the pirates and upgrade them continuously, but it seems that isn't working.

I did it using Console Commands while experimenting to see if it would work, and I had a few utility mods like space station construction, Starship Legends, and Gates Awakened active. Anyone know what the deal is?
