Title: [0.95a] Low Maintenance 1.1
Post by: Zym on May 19, 2021, 05:00:46 PM
Download 1.1 (https://github.com/Zymoz/Low-Maintenance/releases/download/1.1/LowMaintenance.zip)
Can be added during a campaign.
Can not be removed from a campaign once saved.



What the mod does

Adds a hullmod called Low Maintenance that reduces supply maintenance by 50% and applies it to the following ships:



Why those ships?

Two reasons:

Also, as you can see on the following table, even when you apply such a drastic decrease in maintenance, their overall costs for flying around are still higher than their high tech counterpart. The ships with "(LM)" next to them are the same ships but with the Low Maintenance hullmod applied to their overall costs. The final cost calculations assumes base costs for the supplies, crew and fuel.

Would you consider a whitelist feature so that we can add low tech ships added from mods to get a reduction in maintenance cost? Thank you

I fully second this idea. I've already got Luddic Church versions of Onslaught, Legion and Dominator thanks to the "Luddic Expansion" mod and it would be a shame for them to not recieve this mod goodness!

Suggestion for tooltip text: "This type of mass produced ship has spare parts available in the entire sector, and has been built to both last, and be easily maintained, reducing maintenance cost by 50%."

A bit more flovery than just stating the obvious.

It's short and to the point, just like the high maintenance hullmod.

Zym adds that hullmod to ships by replacing .ship files. He would have to create a script to dynamically add that hullmod to all ships designated low-tech or something else.

Going to add +1 that this is a fantastic mod and really helps make the lowtech caps feel balanced. It also makes finding them early feel pretty good! (Your concern at that point is all the fuel they love to guzzle...)

Huh. I never really put it into a spreadsheet, so I had no idea running a paragon was cheaper than an Onslaught. That doesn't make a whole lot of sense aside from simply being able to field more Onslaughts per fight. I mostly use high tech/phase ships anyway. Pretty neat mod, though. Maybe It'll feel more worth it to carry around a couple low tech ships.
