It's at or around line 201 in the file.
Official value is 2.0. Try setting it to something like 6.0 for a grander, more panoramic view of the battlespace.

Firstly, make sure you are using a high-quality code-friendly text editor - I strongly suggest Notepad++ (yes, two pluses).

As above, open the file called settings.json.....

Approximately at or around line number 567, you should find these two:

Change the values to ones that you prefer.
Save the file.
Restart the game.
Enjoy.   8)

Indeed it is.

I see no mention of a Dun Scaith in the vanilla game's Codex.  ???

If this is modded content you're referring to, it's likely best to post your query on the Modding forum in the thread dedicated to whatever mod it belongs to. That way, others playing the same mod who look in the correct thread will find your query and the resulting info will be located centrally with all other conversations about that mod.

For missiles specifically, pretty certain the only missiles that regain ammo during a fight are pilums, in vanilla at least.

...and Salamanders.

For that matter, it always struck me as very odd that expanded magazines applied to energy weapons as opposed to ballistics. Lots of room there.

It did formerly apply to both, back when ballistic guns had a finite ammo limit. That was numerous game-versions ago, and isn't coming back.

Why do you run bulkheads over something like hardened shields? (on the SO hyperion and scarab)

While on the game's ship-refit screen, read the tooltip for the Reinforced Bulkheads refit. It tells you that if a ship equipped with R.B. is disabled in combat, the hull will not break apart and is almost always recoverable after the battle. When you have ships whose hulls are uncommon or rare and thus, hard to acquire in quantity -- Scarabs & Hyperions are superb examples of this! -- then the installation of R.B. is a wise move to safeguard your investment in hulls which you cannot otherwise replace quickly, or cannot replace at all.

Such bonuses would not only be an appropriate (and interesting) mechanical synergy on their own merits, but they would also extend player immersion as well. I like your idea.

I've made a personal mod to test minor vanilla tweaks, including making the Thumper a more multipurpose PD-capable weapon (though it'll prioritize ships when they're in range).
Intriguing. I'd very much like to play a mod which uses your Thumper values; care to share?

a lot of the appeal of sandbox games is in being able to putter around and do things at your own pace (and fine-tune your own difficulty by being more or less prepared), so I think that's important to keep.

My $0.02:
I'm glad as well as relieved to read that statement. Sandbox gameplay flexibility (along a time axis as well as a space axis) is a large part of why I'm here in this particular game. If that aspect were not adequately retained, I would have to seriously re-evaluate my interest in Starfarersector despite otherwise being well-disposed toward most of the game.

<-snip-> stop making us wait so long!

" long?", you say?  ::)


I've been calmly waiting ten little years -- no lie; since December of 2010 -- for this fascinating and immersive game to one day be feature-complete and polished to a final shine.

It was this now-nostalgic *third* entry ever in the official blog (be sure to watch that video linked therein...) -- written exactly a decade ago, TODAY, and which I stumbled upon about a week later -- which first sold me on the concept of Starfarersector. This forum itself didn't even exist yet!

Regarding 0.95, we can afford to be patient.

Others must follow same path. To me you are like little baby, padawan. ;D  Your eagerness is gratifying but you must be like mountain rock, ignoring the lash of wind and rain as the passage of seasons blurs together.

Another hour? After Christmas? Next year? Post-COVID19? After the Smartphone Uprising? The questions are meaningless, for time is elastic. Excellence will not be rushed by crying of mortals, singing ancient and honorable hymn of Shut Up And Take My Money. Instead, become one with the Tao of dev-timeTM, and you will have achieved true Nirvana-like patience with the blessed Alex (glory unto his name). The path to fulfillment beckons. Fear God! Honor the King! Smash the [REDACTED]! So sayeth Drunken Master.

(Is my bottle of sake empty already? Dang, son. :D )

P.S. I did buy my own key a week after I used Sseth's but havent been able to use my key even after uninstalling and reinstalling the game.

If you haven't done so yet, I recommend that you post about that problem in a new thread on the Bug Reports & Support sub-forum.

Argh, I might as well just add more groups! That UI would benefit from an overhaul, anyway.

Thank you, Alex! This is wonderfully beneficial  ;D
