Try redownloading the mod. The download corrupts the file from time to time.

General Discussion / Re: Changing the Automated ship skill

Far as I'm aware, no way to actually edit/remove the limitations of this skill without using a mod that override it. Truly Automated Ships changes how the automated ship points work, so maybe that's the mod you were referring to? Quality Captain also changes a bunch of skills/how they're unlocked, but I haven't tested myself and don't know if it actually affects penalties related to AI ships and their officers.

Edit: just gave the second mod's page a quick read, seems to do what you're looking for. Just gotta give it a try, I guess!

I honestly don't know what you've been doing for having such an experience, especially for hours. The ship's sytems let you teleport, reduce incoming damages and regen your hull/armor while also working like a temporal shell. With all that, you don't need to outrun the missiles: you just dodge them. Same for the fleet as a whole, really. Compared to something like Transparence, I find this one's mechanics much easier to manage. So while I do agree that it's not a walk in the park either, I don't get how you can have so much trouble for so long.

Pick and choose your targets, force them to split up, teleport in their backs when possible, do enough damage to make the bigger threats retreat instead of outright destroying them, then back out to regen and go at it again. I managed to win with this strategy while mostly playing vanilla and doing minimal changes to the ship's base loadout/hullmods. That's why imo it's one of the easiest supership missions here: your ship has the ability to take a beating so long as you're not too reckless with it, and the only timer you really get is your CR decreasing as the battle goes on.

It's one of the easiest missions in my experience. Personally, I've been doing good enough by kitting the enemy fleet and using the regen ability between each fight. It's a supership, but that doesn't mean it's supposed to be OP by itself. Just need to build the skills required for it.

Edit: if you really want to get a ship you're not yet capable of piloting right and probably be disappointed with it down the line, then game's folder > Save folder > open "mission_score.json" with a text editor > look for the mission's ID. Then simply change whatever score you had there to 100, and you're set.

Yes. Just change the version the mod's asking for and you're set.

Could just be that, since most if not all ships come from blueprints (post-collapse era tech), and the only instances of actual, professional bp modifications were extremely expensive which required specialized knowledge that most of the sector simply lacks nowadays, then it's simply not worth it to do it for an entire line of battlegroup ships.

There's also the fact that we seem to lack the proper knowledge on how such modifications were done to begin with, and the few examples that survived both the 50 years journey and the subsequent 2 AI wars are just too precious to be torn apart for study.

Finally, the Hegemony seems to be doing well enough with mostly regular lowtech fleets, so why bother with slightly better versions of those, really.

General Discussion / Re: Ignore Slipstreams
« on: May 25, 2024, 07:15:03 AM »
So, the answer here is "Not really, no"

Slipstreams are meant to be an integral part of hyperspace travels, but... that's not quite what the blogpost says. You can unlock an ability that lets you go in the opposite direction of a given slipstream provided you scan enough planets/black holes and other stuffs like it.
There's also the ability to generate slipsurges, which launch you in a direction of your choice. The distance varies according to the star type you're using to create it, but can otherwise count as a possible way to "ignore" some of the slipstreams you'd find by traveling normally.

Redownload the mod and do a clean reinstall. That message typically happens when your file gets corrupted during the download phase.

Mods are a thing. They got end game content. And they're right here, ready to be added to your game.

But anyway, I'm getting the feeling I'm just repeating myself. Been 4 years without vanilla end game content, sure. Might be 4 more for all you know, and if it is, you can't really change that.

One last thing though: a surprise only really counts as such if you don't know what/how/when it's going to happen. You're trying to get the exact opposite here.

Think I already told this to you, but the fact that he's keeping some secrecy around upcoming content doesn't necessarily mean it's supposed to be ominous, or that anything he'll add will make you "cry like a baby". It's just the dev trying to not spoil stuff. Cuz once again, if he adds super-end-game-dorito-horror-that'll-definitely-scare-the-living-hell-out-of-you... The simple fact that you know it's coming can dramatically lessen the impact of it.

Let's be real, even the sprites have aged poorly.

Or Captain's Log, which does pretty much the same thing.

Known bug, a couple people have reported it already. Dunno when a fix will be posted though.

The hulls from the hegemony AI fleet aren't separate ship designs though. Just one-off modifications that came after their production. There's also the idea that being able to reliably produce those ships like any other regular ones (without d-mods to top it off) would feel (and probably be) like a kind of cheat-y thing in the long run. Consequences for AI ship use would be kind of nice though, on that we agree.
