The new mechs are fn AWESOME! And I love this new pseudo-progression system that came from the wingcom suite hullmod. It gives you a new way of acquiring officers in a way that feels so organic. Like you can win battles and build up rep with other pilots in your wing until they gain enough experience to lead their own squad of mechs. Super cool!

A critique I have right now is that the powerfist for the leynos feels pretty underpowered. I may just be bad at piloting it, but more often than not, the fist projectile gets destroyed after a few uses, and doesn't have enough mobility to return in time to achieve optimal DPS. Considering it's a shield popper, this kinda ruins the weapon. The railgun is a much more reliable if weaker option, but at least that one isn't liable to miss you on the return flight and meander off into space. Even with ECCM, sometimes the powerfist AI just bugs out and turns in a huge circle until it dies.

Edit: I got missile spec and got gud. The powerfist is pretty powerful, actually. But it does appear to be directionally challenged sometimes.

I have the same issue as DeclanFrost. I build the Irradicator on a Irradiated world. However upon completion I cannot instal the Irradicator core in the terraforming infrastructure.



If you have console commands, I've found the fastbuild command works for terraforming structures as well. It finishes the program even without an item. If you wanted to, you could use the command to have all the appropriate effects from terraforming, then just release the irradicator core out into space as a workaround.

Does this work with kingdom of terra's segmented ships? They don't seem to appear on the segments

I'm having issues with irradicators not giving me the option to install the respective core. I've tried having it in storage, in my inventory, etc and still no option to install the irradicator core. I got tired of it and tried just changing the planet through console commands, which works, but doesn't change the planet type. So I'd still much rather do it the legit way, but I can't.

Edit: and now the planet spawned two stellar shades in orbit after completing terraforming.

I'm so excited for the strikecraft dedicated hullmod and the new mech/s. I've been using nothing but ships from this mod as my flagships for the past month

Just fixed it. I broke something in the shaxx file so I just deleted it.

How do I add custom chatter characters? I tried downloading Arcalane's and tweaking them but it didn't let me add the characters to my officers (ID not found). I added the character filenames to the characters.csv but it just made me crash upon loading my game.

I feel one of your most significant points isn't being addressed here. That point being the tiny UI. I haven't found a way to make the UI easier to read, but you can just use Combat Alarms like one person said and use the little ship Sprite in the bottom left to see where you're damaged. In vanilla, there's an audio cue when your weapons or engines are disabled, so just listen for that.
