Always DELETE the old version before extracting the new one
Requires LazyLib (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=5444.0) and MagicLib (http://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=13718.0)


 A small-ish collection of ships wings and weapons focusing on seamless integration next to the vanilla game. This isn't the flashiest or the deadliest of the content mods around, but it should hopefully provide some interesting variations and combinations to the vanilla factions fleets.

 Non exhaustive sample of the things you'll encounter

(https://i.imgur.com/XNZoJCD.png)
     




Niagara-class Battle Wall

 Ever thought "Damn, I wish I could rip the Conquest's arms off and use them both to fire at an enemy at the same time"?

(https://i.imgur.com/nss9I7Y.png)
     





Attrition-class Artillery Cruiser

 Sometimes dubbed the "Space Urchin" due to the myriad of small stingy thingies this ship is covered with.

(https://i.imgur.com/t6IxSlK.png)
     




Foray-class Converted Cruiser

 The premium choice for station demolition when you have no money to afford a proper warship.

(https://i.imgur.com/wUNgpzL.png)
     


Bully-class Destroyer

 Likes to beat up smaller ships with its superior reach and harder punches, does not like to take a beating in return.

(https://i.imgur.com/PbmHfMZ.png)
     


Challenger-class Frigate

 It's a workhorse, it won't win races, it won't win beauty pageants, but you can depend on it to do the job reliably.

(https://i.imgur.com/9AHmsYQ.png)
     









Herald-class battle-carrier

 The Heron wasn't annoying enough.




(https://i.imgur.com/C8BXWPV.png)
     





Hightide-class Converted Cruiser

  The NON premium choice for station demolition when you have no money to afford a proper warship. But at least this one can hit the side of an capital ship provided it does not move too much.

(https://i.imgur.com/cs7oBuf.png)
     




Bonnethead-class Assault Cruiser

  The hyperactive cousin of the Eagle-class cruiser. Will often stick its nose where it shouldn't, but has a thick enough hide to survive it.

(https://i.imgur.com/ssIzq8A.png)
     







Owl-class Recon Cruiser

   It is an Eagle, but it is also a Hammerhead, and it is shaped like an arrowhead.

(https://i.imgur.com/py2tkeI.png)
     





Crane-class Demilitarized Cruiser

  A fast hybrid freighter that will fit emerging scavenger fleets really nicely.

(https://i.imgur.com/tJNA5Nk.png)
     




Scalper-class escort destroyer

 It will look after you when you are way too focused on your enemy's flux bar.


(https://i.imgur.com/B5lJKkv.png)
     


Pest-class Frigate

  Small and barebone, but cheap and economical. Best deployed by the dozen.

(https://i.imgur.com/1vkaBxx.png)
     


Cassicus-class destroyer

 Small winged bug with a huge stinger.


(https://i.imgur.com/jWASFYa.png)
     





Whirlwind-class Heavy Cruiser

  It has three large mounts. THREE. LARGE. MOUNTS!?

Can you use Seeker and this together?

Also I'm surprised the Tumbleweed didn't make this Vanilla friendly pack.

Post by: Tartiflette on February 02, 2020, 02:06:04 PM
You'll have to update Seeker to make it compatible.

The Tumbleweed isn't a vanilla kitbash, and it has a very special rare variant that will be tied to a quest in Seeker thus it stayed there. The Owl almost made it into TADA, but in the end I kept it there too for the same reason.

All Niagara models are duplicated if used together with Seeker.

(maybe others as well, I just noticed the Niagara)

Post by: Tartiflette on February 03, 2020, 10:14:17 AM
Almost all ships are duplicated if used in conjunction with Seeker: the 0.3 update only de-listed them to not break saves. That means factions won't use or sell the Seeker version of TADA's ships anymore but keep their existing ones, and those ships won't show up at all in a new game.

yes. Yes! YES!

I love the crazy and weird stuff in Seeker (and eagerly await its official release) but I thought it would be neat if I could use only the more conventional ship-hulls for a vanilla-like playthrough.
This is great! Thank you for making this! ;D

The "download link" line leads one to a version of the mod that gives the same Luddic Church-related error as CrimsonPhalanx experienced, whereas clicking on the "Download T.A.D.A." image leads one to a version of the mod that, well, actually works.

You did an excellent job with the Pest-class Frigate. The illusion of depth is really unique, and something you don't see very often in ship sprites. Looking forward to seeing how this mod develops!

At first i thought that the Niagara was stupid, i'll admit it. Then i got the chance to use a (P) one and i fell in love.
Shield Bypass/Heavy Armor/ITU + 4 Hypervelocity Drivers + 4 Heavy Maulers + PD + Escort wing will bully ANY capital really hard, even without a captain.
Keep up the good work!

I'll just copy what Histine replied in the other thread since I'm not savvy enough with these terms
''A ship jammed in production queue sounds like the bug where a ship with no variants in default_ship_roles.json can't be built and just consumes money forever.''

So it appears there's a bug with the normal Niagara where if you try to build it, it just loops around and never finishes.

Hi there, I'm almost done with this mod's translation work.

BUT I found something wrong with Owl- class cruiser:

And I checked the ship_data.csv and compared with description.csv and you guessed it:

(https://i.imgur.com/HWY4qVo.png)this is what in ship_data.csv

OK so I do have a little problem on this and hope it will be fixed ASAP, that's all.

BTW I will change id in description to fix this problem temporarily but if  your future update changed this I will do the same.

Bug report:  It looks like the Pinnace Gunship (fighter I'd assume) doesn't suffer the increased OP cost on ships with converted hangar?  Looks like it costs only 11 OP to add to such ships, as well as only 11 OP to add to a standard carrier.  I'm guessing that is unintentional.

There's something funky going on with the Herald. Even with ample armaments, it would straight up refuse to engage other ships, even small cruisers or destroyers.

Maybe I should try a more aggressive officer, but even without an officer the legion doesn't exhibit this kind of behavior.

I'm not the author. Try the premade loadout in the combat sim just as an experiment. I've heard that certain weapons can cause behavior changes. Possibly even weapon groups.

The Herald is for now a pure carrier in the eye of the AI because of the suicidal tendencies combat carriers suffer from (unless they can take it like the Mora or the Legion). But that issue will be solved in 0.95, so then I'll be able to make the Herald slightly more aggressive. In the meantime, an Aggressive officer should help.

Update time, with a trio of guns and fighter wing to toy with:

 The Triple Mortar is a "premium" variant of the humble Light Mortar small ballistic weapon everyone is always overlooking. While one slow, puny explosive shell might be overlooked, three of them launched at once from a single mount will pose a much greater threat to lightly armored frigates and destroyers.

 The Dioscuri Recoilles Rifle is a large accurate mid-range ballistic weapon that fills the gap between the heavy hitter Hellbore, and the rather underwhelming Hephaestus. It is a bit less flux-efficient than either of those, but compensate by being usable against both small and large targets.

 The Firespitter defender wing is a large low-tech escort fighter offering a all-in-one PD solution on the cheap. It is however unsuited to deal with anything but fighters and missiles. Ideal to fit on those lone flight decks modders love to put on their cruisers.

This update is save-compatible.
ALWAYS DELETE THE PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF A MOD BEFORE EXTRACTING THE NEW ONE.

BALANCING:
 - Removed the stat debuff of the Pather and Pirate variants of the Bonnethead-class cruiser.

 Now that I had time to play a bit with the update, here is something a smidgen more polished to play with. It includes a few mild nerfs but also some mild to significant buffs. A few ships have seen their systems changed to better fit with the new Vanilla content, or to finally make them worth using, notably the Owl:

Bonnethead (LP) needs a buff? Seriously, I can't find a reason to use LP version over a normal one with SO even when restored. (no assault chainguns, 25 vs 23 DP, 25 less OP with SO, very limited missile supply, same ship system... or maybe I'm just missing something very obvious hidden in plain sight)

Great mod btw, Bonnethead is super cool and fun to fly.

The balance seems a little off vs. vanilla... the mining pike in particular is just absolute murder against anything unlucky enough to have its shields down. The excellent range, ROF, damage, and projectile speed means anything Destroyer-sized or smaller (not to mention low-end Cruisers) dies within seconds, the damage output quickly overcoming the fragmentation penalty vs. armor. It's also available early and fairly common. Definitely something to either get a good nerf or could potentially get bumped to Large size and have an interesting niche as a capital-ship weapon designed to quickly dispatch enemy escorts.

I don't find LP ships that enjoyable to fight in general, and I don't think they should be competitive with non LP variants. Also Pathers barely use any midline combat ships (I think the Brawler is the only one?) so I'm actually closer to remove that ship rather than buff it.

Definitely something to either get a good nerf or could potentially get bumped to Large size and have an interesting niche as a capital-ship weapon designed to quickly dispatch enemy escorts.
I don't know, I never felt the Mining pike was that off in term of balance. Yes it can accurately hit small targets, but the charge won't stick if they have a high enough acceleration, and shields block the explosion too. Overall, I always seen it as a very good early game weapon to poke holes into pirate ships, but its efficiency quickly falls off compared to other 10 OP weapons when you start facing stronger ships with better armor and shields.

If other concur with your opinion though, I could see bumping the OP cost up a little, and the flux efficiency down.

I have been observing an issue with the Niagara-class though I am not sure if this mod is directly responsible. For some reason, large Luddic Church fleets (such as invasion fleets in Nex) have almost nothing but Niagaras as capital ships. Other capitals are made extinct by this (for example LC capitals added by the Luddic Enhancement mod). With TADA disabled other captials are back to being found in LC fleets.

To @Tartifette

I don't think Luddic Path needs to have purposefully gimped versions of ships. The fact Path has a really limited set of weapons to fit into ships which usually come with a plethora of D-mods and most notably Ill Advised Modifications are more than enough to make them perform worse than most if not all factions in the base game.

I fully agree on Path not having access to almost no Midline ships tough, I think the only two these Ludd For Brains Fanatics use in Vanilla are the Brawler and (maybe) the Overridden Hammerhead?
Removing the reskin of the ship would be a waste in my opinion, I would instead overhaul it to be radically different than the original instead; a brief and poorly thought out example:

DP increase stays, the ship gets the same OP as the original, the weapon mount modifications stay the same and the ship gets a different, more low tech oriented ship system like Damper Field.

I will admit I have not tried refitting the LP variant of the Bonnethead yet, but it really looks too gimped for its own good when taking furl's feedback to heart. I'll try it as soon as I can either produce it or recover it from a Luddic Path armada unfortunate enough to meet me on a bad day  ;)

Edit: Now, I know I said Path should not have access to more Midline ships, but the Owl really screams "Override me and give me Assault Chainguns and Heavy Machineguns" every time I see it buzzing around in the battlefield.

Keeping with the "DowngradeHaul" you could apply even further to the LP Bonnethead, this theoretical Owl (LP) would be 3 DP more expensive than the normal one, possibly slightly worse base flux stats and shield ratio, Integrated Safety Overrides (and maybe Ill Advised Modifications, despite the Dmod more or less butchering ship performance) and some changes to the ship fighter bays and ship system:
I would increase the number of fighter bays from 2 to 3 but I would also give it the same integrated hullmod nerfing them as the Colossus Mk3 (what was sit called, malformed fighter Autoforge or something?) and I would also change the current ship ability to Burn Drive, especially now that Alex confirmed it's going to go back to being cancellable again in his most recent blog post.

It could alternatively get Integrated Unstable Injector instead of Safety Overrides (and maybe no ill Advised Modifications) to give both Path and Player a more varied set of choices to refit it. This would take a page from the Luddic Path variant of the Tyrant Battlecruiser from Vayra's ship pack, altough that one still gets Ill Advised Modifications.

Thoughts? I love the mod by the way, I got two Heralds in my current fleet and they're amazing  :)

Edit 2: Is the 12 Ordinance Points "Broadsword Mk.II" from this mod by the way? I've got a feeling that only making a Broadsword 4OP more expensive despite getting two Swarmer SRMs per fighter is a bit too little. Having it cost something like 13 or even 14 OP would be a lot more in line with the massive power spike of the fighter craft that now has both an anti fighter weapon and a source of HE damage to melt enemy ship armor with.

On the other hand it's slow and vulnerable compared to other High Tech ships, so a strong system felt needed.

Agree. It having all these active flares gives it a special feel and makes its defensive nature very clear.
It also helps make it one of the very few destroyers in the game that can succesfully act as a dedicated PD escort. Destroyers are usually unable to perform in that role as the low range boost from DD-grade ITU and lack of turreted large non-missile mounts results in inadequate range on most PD options, and PD range is what you need when covering allies.
The Cassicus on the other hand can take advantage of its large energy turret mount to mount a Paladin boosted by Advanced Optics' flat range increase. Combined with the rains of active flares, I've found it to be the only high-tech ship below cruiser size that bests the Omen as an AI escort to larger ships.

Hello. I have a question or two.

I was wondering if this mod and your other mod "Seeker" were compatible? I saw that on an older post it said something about them being a little wonky if used together. I was unsure what that all meant and to how significant of an incompatibility it is. I was also curious if that is still the case or if they work completely fine together now. And if they were incompatible, would their be anything I would have to do to make them work together as normally as possible?

One more question.

I am new to Starsector modding. I was curious if mods like "Seeker" would be compatible with other mods that add ships such as "Tahlan Shipworks"? I was just curious if there was some rule of thumb for which mods might not work together. For instance I know that mods that alter the same files will not work together (in a lot of mods, Fallout, Sins of a Solar Empire, Stellaris, etc.), so I was curious if there is something like that to follow as a basic measure. From what I can tell, these two mods mainly add ships and ones like "Seeker" add in quest chains, so I didn't know if there would be any major reason why the various ship mods might not work?

Sorry for the long text. Thank you for reading all of it if you have.

Yes and yes. I use all of these - and many more - together with no issues.

The only "problem" can be redundancy, really: when you add mods like this one, Seeker, Tahlan's, HTE, Vayra's etc together, you begin to have A LOT of ships around in the sector or anyway available. Many of which might be filling the same niche or role, as these are all mods meant to either fill some holes in the vanilla lineup or offer some "white whales", rare ships for your own personal fleet. I'm a sucker for the latter, thus I'm happy to have a plethora of uniques to choose from, but it can get objectively unwieldly. Add on top a few faction mods that might also have some HVBs or other non faction exclusive exploration content, and you might feel a bit overwhelmed.

Depend on your tastes and where you want it to stop, really.

I hope Hightide will use Pilums (D), with the description saying how Hightide's autofactory is damaged and makes missiles without a warhead, so people just shove random explosives there and call it a day.

I intend to do something slightly different and just call those missiles a different name altogether. Maybe also tweak them a bit now that I'm no longer constrained by the original one.

A weirdness. I'm not sure if it was a bug, because it sounds just plausible, and if it was a bug, I'm not sure I want it fixed.

I picked up a Pest (P) as combat salvage, intending to drag it home to the emergency ship stash/museum of stuff I've killed. Don't worry, those d-mods give it character!  It sat at the back of the fleet awhile. Occasionally, Hull Restoration would fix a d-mod; I was on a marathon exploration/salvaging run through the north of the sector and stayed out for months at a time. The last one was Unreliable Subsystems. When it got fixed...my Pest (P) turned into a regular midline Pest.

Yes, you can restore Pests to their pristine condition, that's intended.

That's actually a really neat feature, and thank you for adding it.
