Slight necro from OP, but since there has been multiple requests:

Everything I've done here is completely free to use, all I ask is a nod to the original mod. Go wild!

Same goes for any other mods I've published in the past -- all for the good of the community, I think.

You'll want proj hitpoints in weapon_data csv, column AE if you're on excel.

the speed of missiles are in weapons.csv, but if you want to change maneuverability stats (acceleration, turn rate) you'd have to go into weapons/proj/whatevermissileitis and change each individually.

Diplomacy and intelligent faction decision making are the solution to the annoyance  everyone is expressing...

Nobody should bother attacking the colony unless they have like a 75% chance of winning. They should just harass fleets instead. Would you mount a giant attack that you're probably going to lose? No. Why should the AI? Because fun? Well, obviously it isn't fun for anyone.

I agree.

Unfortunately, Alex seems to be stuck in the thought process of more-explosions == more fun (See suicidal pirates who will attack you right after you wipe out a fleet twice its size without breaking a sweat). While to an extent that is true, I feel like the game currently offers too much of a good thing in that regard.

Battles are good, but one can only wipe out the same pirate junker fleet so many times before it gets boring.

Will we also be seeing versions of these portraits overhauled for Sindrian, Persean, Tri-tach, and other factions?

I'm pretty sure ships are right now hardcapped to 600 speed. I seem to remember trying a mod to that effect and found that

Oh man, I remember playing these missions in computer class in high school.

I am now a law student and might be a lawyer by the time 1.0 comes out...

This might be the game I have followed for the longest time...

I regret nothing

Ah don't be so unsure of yourself, your sprites are great. The providence, especially, looks like a really interesting design. I for one look forward to seeing the rest of the mod :)

because a lot of people like it

   "maxShipsInFleet":30, in the same file

Can confirm you're on the right track, increase those by a factor of 10 and enjoy :)

Suggestions / Re: Reasons to (temporally) use a small fleet
« on: June 10, 2018, 09:19:04 PM »
I bring back this as another idea that can incentivize a smaller fleet.

It's the main reason I conceived of the system, really. Growth is a fundamental part of the progression of this game, but growth does not necessarily mean more/bigger ships. What if instead we can focus on building a small but elite taskforce?

Probably too intensive to implement at this stage of development, but I do hope some form of this makes it into the game.

I doubt it'll be out until November at the earliest

Frequently, I see my fleet of something like 2 destroyers and 2 frigates being attacked by 3 (D) frigates.

Huh, really? That shouldn't happen; could be a bug that I've since fixed. Just gave it a quick test and a pair of (D) frigates runs away from my fleet of 1 frigate and 1 destroyer. Possibly mod-related?

In any case, totally agree that that's not a good thing and forcing the player to have trivial fights like that is not a good idea.

I'll admit my memory might exaggerate and I haven't played in a while, but I just picked up my old save and had this happen:

This is for a delivery quest, so it's entirely possible the problem is exclusive to that, but cmon, that's not a remotely fair fight, is it?
