There's an oddity with NPC colonization forces.

I attacked a TT colonization force right next to the colony, defeated it, and, since all it had left was a really miniscule transport and a couple frigates, I decided not to pursue them. Here's the thing, they still managed to colonize the planet, even though there is absolutely no possible way that the remaining ships could haul 1k crew and the other resources.

[close]

Is it possible for this mod to increase the limits of items per batch of player construction, for example more than 50, 20, or 10 weapons per month? Is there a way I can edit the mod files to increase this limit myself? It would save so much micromanaging in the game.
This isn't moddable, as far as I know. Someone could make a suggestion forum thread to raise or remove the cap.

Are there any plans on setting it so that you can choose your faction's alignments for diplomacy?
You can change it by changing the player faction's Nex config (data/config/exerelinFactionConfig/player.json). (This affects all ongoing games)
Although you shouldn't need to change it, the main effect it has is alliance restrictions and not having any alignments means the faction isn't affected by those. (The alliance intel config used to lie about alliance compatibilities, it's fixed now)

Hmm, if it takes enough losses the colony expedition is supposed to be aborted. I might have to look into this.

I have a question, can a function allow me to automatic pay the money to stop other factions' invade? It's too frequent since I open the brawl mode, extremely disturb me especially when I have a large number autonomy colonies ::)

Another thing. I suggest removing the crew looting from defeated enemies. It brings tedium if you're already at full crew.

You have a battle, get the looting screen, select "take all", and, usually, if you are over cargo capacity, you can throw some metals right back out before exiting the looting screen. With crew, if it is over capacity, you cannot throw them out right away. You have to close the looting screen, then open the inventory once again just to send the crew you don't need into space.

I think the cons on this outweigh the pros, so, at least in my nex, I edited the crew looted to be 0.

Also. Upon invading Eventide, afterwards in the comm links, there's still this guy tagged "High Hegemon". A bit of an oddity to see a High Hegemon working on Eventide after it gets stuffed to the brim with AI cores.

is it normal that once you make a colony indipendent they will do absolutly nothing? since i can't build for them , i can't give them money , and they don't seems to build or try to do nothing , it mean i should make them indipendend after building them up ?  is it something wanted or i'm missunderstanding something?

Yeah I think that's how it works right now. Personally I think all the autonomous colonies should be like their own faction almost, with 20% of their income going to the player of course. So like you make a new colony autonomous when you have several more, and the other autonomous colonies will support it and automatically build industries and buildings and crap. So that you can don't have to make a maxed out colony every time you want to make one autonomous.

Is there any way to become an Governor of another factions colony that is larger then size 4 ?

And is it possible to found colonies for a faction that is not your own?

Autonomous colonies (and ordinary NPC colonies) will build stuff (usually, they have a chance to roll not to build anything) when they grow in size, or if their controlling faction changes. Although if their growth rate is negative, this is not going to work; paying for growth incentives first can help.

Anyway, it's intended that the player spends money to build their initial farm/mine for them (rather than dumping 1,000 people on some random planet with no economic activity).

You also already get a 20% share of autonomous colony income.

- No
- You can found a colony, then transfer it to the desired faction (needs undock+redock to get the admin to appear in comm board)

oh... so its just that i should have spend money when i founded them , well, since i went out of my way to remove indipendence , build up things and give them indipendence again , i guess it will work out somehow ... good to know , its better to make them indipendent mid-way , more than when you already did evrything .

I probably am not the first one asking, but could the Stormhawk republic be a bit more constrained by the limits of sanity?

Their bases seem to just appear randomly in the system they are raiding making their actual discovery a diceroll, their fleet composition is really, really limited and it can lead to absolutely disgusting results. 12 Astral, 7 Condor 5 Drover kind of disgusting.

The fact I apparently can not even wipe their faction out makes it even worse. I do not have issues dealing with them when it comes to actually winning but the battles are just an absolute chore. I've litterally had to re-engage one of their fleets three times after they retreated due to losses to finally win and have them run.

Soren, pls fix Stormhawks

They're from Vayra's Sector mod, so you should post there. (And/or disable them in VAYRA_SETTINGS.ini)

Oh snap. I'm sorry xD

Thank you for the heads up! I might just copy paste it in that thread...

Edit: Deleting them from the mod might be a tad extreme, I just wish they actually sort of limited their capital spam. Granted that massive 12 capital carrier fleet was a revenge one but it mad more than double the total FP than any other ones. It's not fun in the slightest, especially when combined with enemy reinforcements coming in after you kill one and IMMEDIATELY curbstomping any flanking ship of yours doing its job from across the map.

Some more quick questions:

1) How come other factions can commit saturation bombardments without getting Hegemony, Luddic Church, Persean League and Independents all the way up their ***, but if I do saturation bombardments, then it means war with all of them?

This is a tad annoying since, in some of my games, some factions (I'm looking your way, Imperium, put down that Titan!) liked to bomb some other colonies to the point of decivilization

2) Do the [REDACTED] show up in randomly generated sector with the event - Derelict Empire?

3) The Derelicts seem to be giving missions, such as survey and exploration - is this intentional? What is the benefit to getting rep with them?

The Sector is unfair that way <shrugging emoji>
(cf. various past topics on this subject)

However, the asymmetry here is the main reason why there's an allowNPCSatBomb config in exerelin_config.json, so you can remove this source of unequal treatment.
(This doesn't remove the territorial sat bomb though, I never did get around to replacing that with an invasion or something)

2) Do the [REDACTED] show up in randomly generated sector with the event - Derelict Empire?
They won't appear in the "core" systems, but should spawn as normal in the areas beyond those.

3) The Derelicts seem to be giving missions, such as survey and exploration - is this intentional? What is the benefit to getting rep with them?
Not intentional, but preventing this involved more messing with the guts of the base game's code than I wanted to do.
You still can't trade with them if you somehow manage to get enough rep with them to stop being hostile, but they won't attack you at least.
