Found a oversight.

When you save a loadout with the Commission hull mod, then use the loadout on another ship, the Commission hull mod doesn't show up, so you have to manually add it.
1.21 September 29th, 2019
  • The Commissioned Specialist Hullmod will now do a ship-wide check on your fleet instead of doing the ship it has the hullmod on individually.
Save-game compatible.

1.2 September 28th, 2019
  • Hegemonic Plating's Armor Bonus increased from 35/40/45/50 to 35/50/65/80.
  • Blessing of Ludd reworked; now grants +25% Missile HP and +10% Missile Damage.
  • Sindrian Endurance renamed to Lion Training; now offers a scaling bonus of defensive/offensive abilities varying on the personality of the officer (timid <-> reckless)
  • Tri-Tech Assistant reworked; now reduces the decay of CR by -20%.
  • The Path's Speed Bonus increased from 15/15/15/5 to 15/15/15/10.

There's no bugfixes or anything since everyone is relatively stable. Only a balance tweak! Version 1.1 or 1.2 will work fine!

2) Differing Faction Commission rewards and effects

Different factions should give you different bonuses for their commission (if they have one)
You mean this?

This is really cool, I'm going to have to think about how I might want to integrate it.

(It would be really fun to balance a faction around below-average stats without a commission that raise to above-average with one. 'Proprietary Maintenance Standards').
That sounds good just make sure the users download this mod!

This is a really neat idea.  As others have noted, balance is off a bit - some of these are definitely more valuable than others - but it's still a really neat idea.  Kudos.

My assessments:
Hegemonic Plating: Simple and to the point.  Not a really significant bonus, but nothing to sneer at either.
League Leadership: This one's pretty powerful; at least personally, I rarely have the OP available to put expanded deck crews on my carriers, so I'd be getting the full bonus more often than not.  On the flip side, the Persean League is pretty boring as a faction, so giving them an exciting and potent crew bonus is, imo, actually, a good idea.
Sindrian Endurance: An interesting idea, but... not actually that useful, at least for my playstyle.  I'd probably combine this with something like a 10% reduction to ship maintenance supply cost.
Blessing of Ludd: This one is, um... weird?  The effect seems fairly reasonable, but the flavor-text could use a re-write.  Something like "Eschewing automated tracking systems, each missile is individually remote-guided by Luddic gunnery crews."
Tri-Tech Assistant: 100% useless bonus.  There are several sources for auto-aim accuracy bonuses (High CR, gunnery implants skill), and they already add up to more than actually has any effect.  That said, I'm not sure what would be a good replacement here.  Maybe a 5% reduction to shield / phase cloak maintenance flux costs?
The Path: One of the more powerful options.  On the other hand... you've got a commission from the Luddic Path.  That probably balances out.
Pirate Handiworks: Powerful but situational.  Though, again, if you're allied this closely with the pirates... well, not only does that mean you're more likely to be in a situation where this matters, it also means you do need all the help you can get.

Hm.  Yeah, okay, so that's just Sindrian Endurance and Tri-Tech Assistant that I think need work.

Question: Do these bonuses apply to ships from the given faction, or just player ships when commissioned?
Edit: It's been pointed out to me that the above question is unclear.  What I meant to ask is if this gets applied to fleets controlled by the given faction, or just the player's fleets.
MesoTroniK makes a good point, but no your player faction fleets don't get the bonus since most of the time they are fighting with fleet points in auto-resolve battles. There's no point in giving player faction hull mods since it is rare you want to join a fight with them. I'll take a look at Sindrian Endurance and Tri-Tech Assistant for next update.

It's a good idea, making late-game com interesting.  :)
Thank you!

What I mean by replacement script is changing the code that adds the faction hullmod to remove the generic hullmod at the same time.
It already does that tho? I'll have to recheck.

Is this an accurate checklist of what a faction mod author needs to do?

1. In `data/hullmods/hull_mods.csv`,
    - [ ] Under `id`, change `chm_200iq` to whatever hull mod id you want.
    - [ ] Under `script`, change `data.scripts.hullmods.chm_200iq` to use your hull mod id instead.
    - [ ] If desired, change any other values, like the `desc`.

1. In `data/scripts/hullmods`,
    - [ ] Rename `` to `<your hull mod id>.java`.
    - [ ] Inside that file, replace `class chm_200iq` with `class <your hull mod id>`.
    - [ ] Inside that file, replace `almighty_dollar` with your faction id.

1. In `data/config/TechpriestCommission.csv`,
    - [ ] Change `almighty_dollar` to your faction id.
    - [ ] Change `chm_200iq` to your hull mod id.
Yup, that should be it. I think.

My god.

The pirate commission is SO worth it. Sensor skill + Pirate commission would be insane.

Is it possible to make it so that the more reputation you have in a commission, the higher the bonus? Like, it'd start at 5% when you first commissioned, then goes up to 30% or something or whatever you choose when you become Cooperative.
It is an idea, I've been tinkering with.
This is a brilliant way to do faction crews, great job!

Very unbalanced atm, but there are others who can better help you with that.

I think you can remove hullmods from the list of ones the player knows. If so, I suggest reorganizing things so faction crew hullmods are available directly while commissioned and the generic Commissioned Specialists hullmod is shown (but blocked) while not commissioned. This would allow multiple options at once and be cleaner in some ways. It would also let you have pirate and pather crews available simply at high rep with their factions.

If you don't want to do that, I would suggest at least doing a replacement script so you only show one hullmod on the ship. Click the general hullmod in the list, get the specific hullmod on the ship.
There is a replacement script to show one hullmod from this mod already? Or I'm not understanding correctly?

Just a heads up, you can have the hullmod cost 0 points. It still works fine, and doesn't require any to install.
New update it is then within the hour. Not sure if it's save-game compatible tho.

Edit: Version 1.1 released, but not save-game compatible, unfortunately. The game should be stable though!

Mods / [0.95.1a] Commissioned Crews 1.999999ggg
« on: September 20, 2019, 01:22:51 AM »

A solution to the mid-game problem of not needing commissions and enhancing your lore immersion by granting special characteristics depending on what faction you're commissioned by. Perhaps it is also an encouragement for you to try out new faction starts...

Commissioned Crews is a mod designed to make commissions more worthwhile to hold onto even in the mid-game and late-game by granting ship bonuses that are only unique to the faction you are commissioned to. However, if you get decommissioned by whatever means, you'll lose that bonus! This mod should be compatible with everything including your saves! It's also not as performance-intensive as a faction mod at all.

How does it work?
Dock at a Market. That's all you need to do. Unless there's a special circumstance that prevents this check from happening (apparently starting ships aren't being checked for odd reasons) A certain hull mod checks if there's a commission and gets replaced by a commissioned crew bonus to a ship you put the hull mod in. It does a fleet-wide check so you only need to do it once if you're not adding any new ships!

Disclaimer: This fleet-check may not work properly when you first begin the game. You may have to use the hullmod as a backup fleet check. This is because ships that are given to the player aren't "exactly" alive until they encounter their first combat, change weapons, or anything to make them alive!
What if there are some ships I JUST DON'T WANT THE BONUS
I got you covered. Just apply this bonus and the ship won't be tagged for any future commissioned bonus hullmod.

I'm convinced, what bonuses do I get from commissioning with the factions?
For the Vanilla 5 Factions that you can actually commission with
Persean League
Luddic Church
Sindrian Diktat
For those who like Nexerelin... you get access to 2 more factions bonus and a unique mechanic...

For you who enjoy more than 1 of these bonuses...
Your voice has been heard! If you have Nexerelin and have allied with several factions. You will now receive their Commissioned Crew bonus when you take up the United We Stand Hullmod!

For modders: Wait, but what about MODDED factions?  :-X
To users, you may have to wait for your favorite mod author to make support. Support is very easy to support for modders. You can download this example code to see how Hegemony gets its hullmod.. You just need to remember to put something in the TechpriestCommission.csv to align with the corresponding faction string and hullmod string while making sure your hull mod has code (in the example) to remove itself when the player is no longer commissioned to the faction. The hullmod should somewhat encourage players for receiving a commission with them (straight debuffs are ? but buffs for a debuff is fine). Support is extremely stable at the moment.

Once you have support, there should little need to maintain support aside from balancing out the commissioned hull mods. If you want some ideas, you may check a look into what the supported modded faction have as their bonuses. For mine, all of the vanilla factions are open-sourced, so you may take a peek to see how I made the code work.

1. In `data/hullmods/hull_mods.csv`,
    - [ ] Under `id`, change `CHM_hegemony` to whatever hull mod id you want.
    - [ ] Under `script`, change `data.scripts.hullmods.CHM_hegemony` to use your hull mod id instead.
    - [ ] If desired, change any other values, like the `desc`.

2. In `data/scripts/hullmods`,
    - [ ] Rename `` to `<your hull mod id>.java`.
    - [ ] Inside that file, replace `class CHM_hegemony` with `class <your hull mod id>`.
    - [ ] Inside that file, replace `hegemony` with your faction id.

3. In `data/config/CommissionBonus/TechpriestCommission.csv`,
    - [ ] Change `hegemony` to your faction id.
    - [ ] Change `CHM_hegemony` to your hull mod id.
4. Optionally you may want to add a tip, hullmod font colors, but that's only if users have this mod so they may get confused if they take a commission and they don't get anything.

    • released
    • Q: Can you make me a Commissioned Crew bonus?
      A: No, it is your choice as a player or mod author to make one for yourself.
    • Q:Does this apply to AI-controlled fleets?
      A: There is no intent or desire to do so. It would just power creep the game and create modded faction support more difficult to accomplish. As mod authors are limited by what they should give to their AI-controlled fleets when CC is enabled. Nonetheless, I don't stop them from applying it to AI-controlled fleets. :)
    • Q: How come when I get a commission with this {modded_faction}, I don't get anything with your mod?
      A: More likely the author of the {modded_faction} has not supported this mod yet or has refused to do so. I cannot personally release one for a {modded_faction} without their explicit permission.
    • Q: What about bonuses for us independents?
      A: Not if you receive commissions, you won't find any here.
    • Q: What about my player faction?
      A: No.
      Q: but...
      A: No, I mean there are some ways but idk... mhmm dark ways.

    Have you guys ever installed too many portraits (pack) mods into your Starsector and you notice some of the portraits are missing? Just wondering if it's just me or some others have noticed it. I had to limit myself to a single portrait pack because of it.
