How does the prismBlueprintPriceMult work?

I saw that Prism has for sale the Blueprints for the Pelagornis from Missing Ships, but its insanely expensive like 60k+ points.

How do i reduce the cost the buying blueprints, or increase the amount of blueprint points you get?

Is the difficulty increasing when I add more factions to the game? Like will there be more faction attacking my colonies?

Point value of blueprints is based on their $ credit price (with a bonus for package BPs). The price of single-item BPs, in turn, is based on the credit value of the ship/weapon/wing.
You can override the point value of specific BPs using the file data/config/prism/prism_blueprints_values.csv.

If you end up at war with more factions that'll increase the number of invasions/raids you'll have to face. Although if there are more factions around they're generally just as likely to go to war with each other as with you.

A little Suggestion born from the Frustration of not getting a Paragon Blueprint after 4 Cycles, and not having enough Points when it was on sale:

Add Empty Blueprints for Purchase in Independent Military Markets (aka Reputation locked) which are expensive and have the sole purpose of trading them in for Points at Prism Freeport.
Maybe add an option to also find them rarely on Black Markets, or even Pirate Military Markets

For Example:
  • Favorable: Nothing yet
  • Welcoming: 200.000 Credits for a small 100 Points Blueprint
  • Friendly: 2.000.000 Credits for a 1.000 Points Blueprint
  • Cooperative: 1.000.000 Credits for a 1.000 Points "Deluxe" Blueprint (basically just a Discount)

Don't know if the random sector mode is even being developed but is it possible to add a config in a file or better a slider in the new game dialog to adjust the bounds of the random core worlds? It seems to be hardcoded right now and I'm pretty sure its much larger than vanilla core worlds.

Dunno about a setting/slider, but I'll look at making the systems spawn closer together.

  • Cooperative: 1.000.000 Credits for a 1.000 Points "Deluxe" Blueprint (basically just a Discount)
If I did something like that, I may as well cut out the middleman and allow credit purchases of blueprints directly. Which I don't plan to implement, as I don't want a general "convert credits to blueprints" method.

Works for me

I encountered a very specific and strange issue, I'll explain:

So there was this system that i gave autonomy to, with donated admins and everything. Some time later and due to reasons i ended up handing this system to another faction and it was his system for a time. Due to another set of reasons, i ended up having to take that system back by force, but after everything was said and done i realized that the planets in this system could no longer be made autonomous, it just doesn't have the option (i talked to all the staff on each planet). All the regular options are there, except "grant autonomy".

Is being able to scavenge ships from battles between other factions going to be addressed? It's easy to just wait for some invasion to happen and just gather stuff when they're fighting. Saves tons of effort to get the better ships.
There should be reputation penalty for taking "their" stuff or outright being stopped from doing so if there is a free faction fleet around.

Would it be possible to talk an alpha core governor into temporarily relocating when a hegemony inspection is coming their way?

Hmm, couldn't easily reproduce. If you have a save (hopefully without too many mods) I can look at the affected planets directly and see what's going wrong with them.

As it happens, I'm experimenting in dev with having independent scavengers also try to collect the salvage and potentially fight the player for it.
I could also try rep penalties with the faction that drops the ships, but they sound potentially annoying ("I get docked for recovering a derelict ship, when if I leave it alone the owner makes no attempt whatsoever to pick it up?")

Not sure I can change the removal dialog, but I might try to make the inspection not find the alpha core.

Now that's damn cool. Make the scavs get attracted to large battles and systems before invasions and we get pretty lively game.

Hello, thank you for creating this fantastic mod. I'm not sure if this has been asked already, but after having searched, no one seems to have asked this, so I'd like to inquire: what options are available within the option Special Functions? I get the feeling that I'm missing out on something after having established a faction (something along the lines of engaging in diplomacy with other factions), though I can't put my finger on it.
