Bug Reports & Support (modded) / EmpArcEntity owner
« on: April 18, 2022, 05:38:51 AM »
I found that if the enemy paragon use tachyon lance to directly hit my hull, in DamageTakenModifier, the param is the EmpArcEntity that the owner equals to 0. But It should be the enemy number 1 logically.

Bug Reports & Support (modded) / Wrong code in BaseLogisticsHullMod?
« on: August 23, 2020, 06:43:50 AM »
Code: java
public String getUnapplicableReason(ShipAPI ship) {
boolean has = spec != null && ship.getVariant().hasHullMod(spec.getId());
int num = getNumLogisticsMods(ship);
if (has) num--;
int max = getMax(ship);
if (num >= max) {
String text = "many";
if (max == 1) text = "one";
else if (max == 2) text = "two";
else if (max == 3) text = "three";
else if (max == 4) text = "four";
text = "" + MAX_MODS;
return "Maximum of " + text + " non-built-in \"Logistics\" hullmods per hull";
return super.getUnapplicableReason(ship);

So why text is always MAX_MODS.
I modify the max number, and the tool tip always give me  "Maximum of 2 Logistics hullmods per hull"

Modding / Asking help for ApproLight translation
« on: October 10, 2019, 06:50:21 AM »
I found that players here may have outdated opinions on ApproLight, it's a super OP mod in the past, but after my long time update, it has been tweaked well.
Because of the freaking large description, I think I need some help here for a translation.
To be serious, ApproLight updated very frequently. It has 1500+ lines of changelog from the beginning.
So it may be hard work to keep on update.

Mods / [0.95.1a] Unofficial New Game Plus 2.1.0 (2022/8/28)
« on: September 20, 2019, 08:18:37 AM »


How To Use?
Press Left Control + P

New game cycle!

1.This mod to some extent makes up for the position of the previous old mod, SaveTransfer. When a player reaches the max level, he/she can record a saving point through the UNGP menu (there is only one saving point in all saves, which could be overwritten). The saving point will save your current credits, blueprints (other than the factory), and the current game cycle number (the new save's game cycle number will be "1").
2.After that, you can start a new game. If you open the UNGP menu within 1 day, you can inherit the saving point, basing on the background you choose, inherit 0~100% of the credits and blueprints , and get extra bonus like skills, skill points and story points.

Specialist Mode!

1. From the second gamecycle, players can choose to enter the Specialist Mode.
2. The specialist mode is divided into 4 levels: Gamma, Beta, Alpha, Omega.
3. The selection rules have a maximum number of rules, which increases with the specialist difficulty level.
4. Specialist mode offers two types of rules: positive rules and negative rules.
Positive rules: consume Cost points and provide you with different benefits for the rest of the game.
Negative rules: providing Cost points to add heavy obstacles to your game
Specialist mode can only be enabled if the total number of Cost points is greater than or equal to 0 and the number of rules is greater than the specified value.
5. Specialist mode can change rules once a year, once in the beginning by default. However, the specialist level could not be changed during the game.

Dulicate the "saves/common" folder to the new SS root to get the old save points!

Mods / [0.95a] Celestial Mount Circle 1.4 (2021/11/25)
« on: December 22, 2018, 06:04:39 AM »

A somewhat lonely faction.
A simple and not showy mod.
-Designed as a learner mod-

version 1.4


Required  - Lazylib -

Celestial Mount Circle, although a derivative of the luddic church, is not a fundamentalist luddite group, who believes that people should give themselves back to nature, and in the same way, everything has a destination. The ultimate goal of the Circle is to "mix the elements and unify them", but they are confused in the process of expanding their territory, wondering why human being could not have an actual END. Not knowing what to do next they lived their primitive lives huddled in a small star system provided by the luddic church.

  • All have funnels.(built-in UAV)
  • No medium mounts.
  • Reduce ship performance when funnels are destroyed.
  • High shield keepup when shield is not unfolded completely.
  • Specific shield generator which will influence fire rate.

  • Serveral ships.
  • Serveral weapons
  • ...Okay there is nothing special.

Capital Ship




  • Originem, I mean myself, heh.
  • BZone, some sprites improvement.
  • Jaghaimo, version immigration help.

-Compatible with 0.95a
-Home-For-Spirits System has a threshold of 30% on the performance reduction.

-Added Peach Garden Guardians, like XIV, special skins.
-Nerfed Clarity-Aphrodite Gun.

-Added Helan-class Super Battle Cruiser
-Added Kaishan-class Destroyer
-Fixed wrong descriptions of planets.

-Added BaXia-class Heavy Cruiser
-Fixed Tianchi-class can't produced.
-Nex Compatible.

Modding / TooltipMakerAPI's Basics in Hullmod or Other things
« on: December 09, 2018, 01:38:28 AM »
Some simple application of TooltipMakerAPI in hullmod coding.
And please modders who learn from this could move the string into strings.json, which could help translation.

    public boolean shouldAddDescriptionToTooltip(ShipAPI.HullSize hullSize, ShipAPI ship, boolean isForModSpec) {
        return !isForModSpec;

    public void addPostDescriptionSection(TooltipMakerAPI tooltip, ShipAPI.HullSize hullSize, ShipAPI ship, float width, boolean isForModSpec) {
        float pad = 10f;
        tooltip.addSectionHeading("Testing Grid", Alignment.MID, pad);
        int col = 3;
        Color valueColor = new Color(0, 255, 100);
        tooltip.beginGrid((width - pad * 2f) / (col * col), col);
        tooltip.addToGrid(0, 0, "X0", "Y0", valueColor);
        tooltip.addToGrid(1, 0, "X1", "Y0", valueColor);
        tooltip.addToGrid(2, 0, "X2", "Y0", valueColor);
        tooltip.addToGrid(0, 1, "X0", "Y1", valueColor);
        tooltip.addToGrid(1, 1, "X1", "Y1", valueColor);
        tooltip.addToGrid(2, 1, "X2", "Y1", valueColor);
        tooltip.addToGrid(0, 2, "X0", "Y2", valueColor);
        tooltip.addToGrid(1, 2, "X1", "Y2", valueColor);
        tooltip.addToGrid(2, 2, "X2", "Y2", valueColor);

        TooltipMakerAPI text = tooltip.beginImageWithText(Global.getSettings().getCommoditySpec(Commodities.ALPHA_CORE).getIconName(), 36);
        text.addPara("I think it's fu*king COOL!", 0);

        text = tooltip.beginImageWithText(Global.getSettings().getCommoditySpec(Commodities.BETA_CORE).getIconName(), 36);
        text.addPara("I think so.", 0);

        text = tooltip.beginImageWithText(Global.getSettings().getCommoditySpec(Commodities.GAMMA_CORE).getIconName(), 36);
        text.addPara("NO I HAVE THE OPPOSITE OPINION!!!", 0);

        tooltip.addSectionHeading("Then Gamma core turns into...", Alignment.MID, pad);

        CargoAPI debris = Global.getFactory().createCargo(true);
        debris.addCommodity(Commodities.METALS, 40f);
        debris.addCommodity(Commodities.RARE_METALS, 20f);
        debris.addCommodity(Commodities.ORE, 10f);
        debris.addCommodity(Commodities.RARE_ORE, 5f);
        debris.addCommodity(Commodities.HEAVY_MACHINERY, 5f);

        tooltip.showCargo(debris, 6, true, pad);

        tooltip.addPara("...Poor Gamma Core.", pad);

Suggestions / Personal Suggestions about 0.9
« on: November 27, 2018, 06:23:22 PM »
Playing 0.9 for these days, and I feel there should be more improvements.
"Player" is so strong that the factions become invisiable and unimportant which is totally different from the previous version. They are only signs of specific blueprints.
And the ship production only needs credits, it's too "automatic". I think if it needs more materials like metals(manual in the early game because of lack of resources,  automatic by industries in the later game), it could be more fun and gameplay plus.
Also, the focus of game turns into colony, not "ship battle" anymore. The bounties become so weak and couldn't match the income. I think the difficultity should be higher and the reward should be something different, like mod spec, blueprints.
I just feel 0.9 is somewhat too easy when  the colonies begin to operate.
bounties grow so fast, but if I put all efforts on colonies...The bounty becomes optional.
I really don't think a player can be a threat to an entire faction.
Look at it this way, these factions are too weak.

No one understood the rise of ApproLight which was so abrupt and unexpected. But Borken does--- They are ApproLight's shareholder, supporter and "enemy" that rivals and instigates them via proxy behind the scenes.

Great Old Gods dominated all that was, then Cthulasus Borken was born. Their birth into reality brought with them into the world beauty, peace and then chaos. After the death of the Old Gods', they carried on and into the infinite void of space. Eventually finding themselves in an unfamiliar place, the Persean Sector at the expanse of their precious treasure, Time.

If you meet them in your travels, fear not. Though their tentacles and alien appearance are unsettling Borken, as alien as they are you can trust are peace loving and shrewd traders.

The ships of the foundation are unlike those built by humans, employing short-lived phase cloaks and regenerative armor plating for defense.

Suggestions / Save and Load

Each time I save I prey, this time please don't break down. And It works most of the time but not always.
And I noticed, if i play for a long time, the jvm warns that the heap is in trouble, and then i have no way but to restart the game.
Is this the problem of my frequent save and load? It's like the xml resources don't release.
And the saving xml file, why not use an optimized library? Or it's inconvenient.
