Might be intended and not really a balance issue either since remnant fighters pale in comparison to the "new" fighters and also not impossible lore-wise too but kinda felt weird so posting it anyway.

Modding / For people who use Windows and Libreoffice to mod starsector
« on: October 26, 2020, 08:25:26 PM »
Each time you open up a CSV with Libreoffice, it asks you what kind of format it should use to open the file. If you only use LibreOffice Calc to edit CSVs for starsector then it becomes annoying after a while. Apparently there is no way to suppress that dialog within the software itself. So instead we make Windows pass on parameters to Libreoffice when double clicking a CSV file from the file explorer which gets rid of the dialog and makes Libreoffice use a formatting suitable for starsector CSVs.
This was tested only on Windows 10, and may not work in older versions of windows.
Also this may not work if you have anything other than English as your system default language.
How to do it
Paste these commands into a command window with admin privileges. (Powershell will not work)
Code
assoc .csv=LibreOffice.Csv
ftype LibreOffice.Csv="%PROGRAMFILES%\LibreOffice\program\scalc.exe" "--infilter='Text - txt - csv (StarCalc)':44,34,0,1,,,false" "%1"
This assumes you have installed Libreoffice in the typical install location. You must change the path to scalc.exe if you installed Libreoffice calc elsewhere.
If the dialog shows up even after this, you must set the default app for .csv files to "LibreOffice Calc"(green icon) instead of "LibreOffice"(gray icon) either through right clicking or from the Settings app.
If you want to save this to a batch file for future use, you must add an additional % character to the "%1" and make it "%%1"

How to revert to default behavior
Paste these commands into a command window with admin privileges.(Powershell will not work)
Code
assoc .csv=
ftype LibreOffice.Csv=
This will remove the file associations for .csv and LibreOffice should handle CSV files in its default behavior.

How to get rid of splash screen
This affects all LibreOffice components.

with a text editor and change the line

Hound (P)
Ship system changed to Maneuvering Jets.

Cerberus (P)
Ship system changed to Accelerated Ammo Feeder.

Gremlin (P)
Small missile slots changed to energy.

Kite (P)
Small ballistic slot changed to energy.

Enforcer (P)
Ship system changed to Accelerated Ammo Feeder.

Enforcer (XIV)
Ship system changed to Damper Field.

Bug Reports & Support / Forum IP bug or not
« on: August 17, 2020, 04:18:35 PM »
The new IP thing on this new forum currently shows a Cloudflare IP instead of my public IP. I kinda felt like this isn't how its supposed to be so just gonna post this here. Its not about the game, but hey, I think it's related enough.

Apparently starsector didn't like it. However the ships look fine for some reason. Start-up times significantly increased probably because the program I used applies slow but high compression ratio methods.
Just posting because this was an interesting result. and I didn't want my time to go to complete waste...

Modding / [0.9.1a] Disable Action Hullmods
« on: April 25, 2020, 07:58:40 AM »
This mod adds hullmods which disables certain actions for AI-controlled ships. The code was stolen and modified pirate-style from the ShieldAlwaysOn.java file within starfarer.api.zip.
Mostly intended to be used on AI-controlled ships(No, not that kind of AI-controlled) so they will not send their support fighters to some other ship or to disable a ship system which isn't AI-friendly.

A note on bombers with regroup order
Bombers with guided missiles will still attack if you get close enough. However bombers with unguided missiles/bombs will not attack.
