Edited changelogs with a note that got left out:
  • Invasion disruption time reduced if defender's damage that round exceeds attacker's

I think your balance may need some changes. I have one size 4 colony and just got wardecc'd by the Sindria/Persean alliance and invaded. They sent across 5 fleets:

9 Conquests
6 Victories
4 Chronos
7 Triumph's

Plus assorted cruisers and others(including enough venture's to blot out the sun) I'm in the process of trying to beat it the main issue being CR and insufficient ships for me to fly of sufficient firepower to keep them from gutting my star fortress. But this is a bit overkill for a faction with only one size 4 colony to its name.
That sounds like it shouldn't be happening, except from two invasion events at once (and even then not for a size 4, except under certain circumstances). Is that's what's occurred?
(Generating an invasion fleet from Kazeron to Jangala (a size 6) with a new level 16 character gets me 9 Conquests (and 7 Atlases))

If you like, I can look at your save and see what factors (intended or otherwise) are resulting in those fleets.
In the meantime I'll change the opportunistic war declaration a bit so some "nicer" factions require worse relations to do it. That won't help with Diktat, but I might also change the alliance vote logic so Perseans won't get also pulled in if they like you enough.

It was 5 Persean grand invasion fleets. What really screwed me over was I also got hit the with bug that limits me to 200 deployment points so I couldn't even deploy my big ships. The link below should get you my save. I've never needed to use Googledrive before so hopefully I got it right.

Though to be honest I doubt it's a mod conflict given that it was the vanilla factions that decided I wasn't allowed to have that planet. But again I'm no modder. Thanks for taking the time to look at this.

What is your battle size set to? If it is set to 500, then you getting 200 DP is not a bug since it sounds like you were super outnumbered. And in SS, the side with more ships gets more DP out of the battle size pool, up to 60% of it. Now if you had a battlestation as an ally, that can take up a large portion of your DP

It is set to 500 however given the enemy was fielding a half dozen capital ships plus a ton of cruisers and smaller that seems a little absurd that I would get LESS deployment points. Think about it, you are fighting more enemies so we're going to make the battle HARDER? that doesn't make sense to me. If it's not the bug I'd read about with the default battle size limit then it's still something that needs changed if that's the logic it's working off of.

It also doesn't make sense to me to be honest. The side that has less ships should have more DP.

It's default vanilla behaviour, not a bug. The larger fleet has up to a 3:2 advantage, depending on total FP.

If you're outnumbered, you should feel outnumbered. The enemy being able to throw wave after wave of units at you wouldn't matter if you could destroy the waves as they appear.

edit: sorry to take part in this derail, since this isn't relevant to this mod the discussion should take place in a suggestion or discussion topic.

I'm sorry but having a arbitrary limit is unrealistic and stupid. If I have the ships to deploy I should BE ABLE TO DEPLOY THEM.

I just had it happen again in my new game. Neutrino declares war on me. Shows up with something like 6 invasion fleets with something like close to 20 Hildofr's between them and can have 4 of them plus a Jackhammer on the field at once. There's no way to fight that and it's not fun.

You want to bring this up with Alex in a fresh thread then, if you dislike the fact that outnumbered means outnumbered. It's not Nex's fault, it's how the vanilla game goes.

As far as I'm aware the invasion fleet is very much a Nexerelin thing. Vanilla Starsector doesn't have invasion fleets that I know. I've been primarily talking about the issue with Nexerelin trying to treat me like Vegeta and stomp me in the *** and mentioned that the deployment cap wasn't helping in that regard. I then had people tell me that it arbitrarily limiting the ships I can deploy when the enemy fleet was under no such restriction was it working as intended. So the deployment cap comment was picked up by others when that was not the primary issue I was having.

Apologies Dreamyr. My comment was aimed at anyone complaining about the deployment issues, not at the Nex invasion fleet discussion.

That said, if you want to be able to deploy every single ship you have? Knock the battlesize up waaaay higher. You can crank that thing in settings.json.

Would it be possible to order the construction of a fleet to follow you for <X> days, in a similar way of putting in orders for base strikes and invasions?

Most thinking it'd be nice to order a custom sized fleet to have the set orders of following you around for a time (say, 60 days, or something that you assign with a slider?) if you want to go crack some REDACTED heads on the fringes of the galaxy.

E: As well as having the "Follow me!" command.

Got around to looking at the save (thanks for uploading it!)

Seems the fleets are so big mainly because of the Star Fortress with alpha core. It's generating 189 FP of combat ships (before doctrine modifiers) to match the patrols from a size 4 High Command... and 870 for the station. Also, it turns out that contrary to my previous belief, alpha cored HT Star Fortress does not actually kill infinite ships.

I'm reducing the strength estimate multiplier for stations in the next version, by about 30%.

I then had people tell me that it arbitrarily limiting the ships I can deploy when the enemy fleet was under no such restriction was it working as intended.
Enemy obeys the fleet cap in the same way that player does.
You can increase the limit in settings as Axle suggests, if your CPU can handle it.

I could do something like that somewhere along the way, yeah. (I'd need to find a way to get the AI to follow the player reliably though, the Follow Me implementation is a bit of a mess)

Neat. If nothing else the longer period of following might help smooth off the edges.

I probably shouldn't be able to turn a market over to the 9th Battlegroup.

That one is intentional by the mod that adds them.
