Although, 'a priori' is usually used in a technical philosophical sense, and it's unclear whether it fits in this case. The domain of a priori knowledge is generally restricted merely to logical inference, whereas things like scientific knowledge are most often considered a posteriori in nature.

Mathematics are also a priori though, so maybe that's what it was referring to.

If you're feeling particularly adventurous, you could actually edit the variant files by hand to set whatever weapons you like (the full list of weapons is in "data/weapons/weapon_data.csv").

Good thing, too; how else was I going to stick 22 HILs on a Conquest?

Ohh, that is pretty cool, I'll have to give it a try.  Btw, is there a file in there with a list of the proper file level names for all the ships?  i.e. astral_Elite and conquest_Elite, clearly it wouldn't like it if I just guessed at the exact names, etc, ha ha.  :)  Forgive me if the answer is obvious, I don't poke around in the guts of this game much at all.  :)

Not a file exactly, but "C:\Program Files (x86)\Fractal Softworks\Starfarer\starfarer-core\data\variants" has all the names in it. They're all case-sensitive, I've found.

There might be a better way, I'm not sure. This is all just trial-and-error on my part.

so...why does the enemy get a random carrier and i dont...i dont get it isnt random suppose to be....random....but for some odd reason a carrier is restricted...

If you navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Fractal Softworks\Starfarer\starfarer-core\data\missions\randombattle1 and open MissionDefinition.java in notepad you can see the the various probability factors; just change "astral_Elite" to something other than 0 and you should be fine. Also, in this section:
Code
	}
if (makeFlagship) {
api.addToFleet(side, "conquest_Elite", FleetMemberType.SHIP, true);
makeFlagship = false;
}
you can change your flagship to something other than the Conquest. I had it set to the Astral for a while, and it made for totally different experience in the random battle. Just make sure to back up any files before you edit them.

I don't see any reason for concern; the game we have right now is easily worth the ten dollars I paid for it, independently of promises of future releases etc.
