I have a stupid question, as this might be a mod conflict.

But the last few games I started, all ORA ships I can acquire come with a "Xeno Warfare Design" hull-mod that makes Energy weapons 3OP more expensive when installed into ships with it. Which, well, isn't the most synergetic hull-mod for ships that pretty much only allow energy weapons and missiles. ;)

I tried googling this, but came up dry. Does anybody have an idea where this might come from and if there's a way to disable it?

It makes, specifically, beam weapons more expensive; there are plenty of non-beam energy weapons, including all of the faction-specific guns.

As I recall, it was added to ORA ships due to play-testing showing that all-beam setups over-performed, and has been there since either the first release of ORA or at least very nearly so.

So, no, not a mod conflict; that's just a feature of those hulls.

Wyvern is 100% correct about the math.

Oh... Oh no. I've been mis-reading that hull-mod so baldy all this time, then! o_o

Thank you for making me aware of that distinction!

Mea culpa for being unable to read properly...

To be extra clear, it only bring bring beam loadouts on par with energy projectile loadouts. It does NOT make them worse. Without that hullmod there would be 0 reason to use anything but beams.

   This update FINALLY solves the long standing scarcity of ORA's weapons in their markets! I also mildly nerfed the Sanctuary-class destroyer that after rounds and rounds of buffs trying to find a good niche for it ended up making the ship a bit too good at everything. On the other hand, I mildly buffed the Harmony-class cruiser and shuffled their weapon mounts around. The multiple new Synergy turrets open up a whole new world of devious weapon loadouts.

   And because it's been a while since I added any weapon to ORA, they now can count on the Incantation Horn artillery piece in their armory. It is a beefed up Plasma Cannon that gets stronger more ranged shots at the cost of... Well everything else.

This update should not break saves.


Changelog:
0.91

NEW CONTENT:
 - Added Incantation Horn large artillery:
   . 900 range energy weapon that packs a massive punch,
   . Abysmal fire-rate,
   . Laughable projectile speed,

 - Sanctuary-class destroyer:
   . Flux capacity reduced to 6000 from 6500,
   . Flux dissipation reduced to 300 from 350,
   . Supplies/month - supplies/deploy raised to 11 from 10.
 - Litany Thrower flux efficiency improved to 1.0 f/dmg from 1.2.
 - Harmony-class destroyer:
   . Mount types shuffled around,
   . OPs raised to 110 from 100.

BUGFIXES/IMPROVEMENTS:
 - FINALLY fixed the weapon availability issue in ORA markets.
 - Valis' binary star now properly show up in the planet list.
 - Fixed Bliss-class frigate miss-aligned mounts.
 - Fixed Discernment-class carrier weapon render order.

I now have updated all the skin packs with the new Incantation Horn weapon. They are available at the usual place.

With every additional skin pack, isn't your work becoming exponential?

Yes, but that's also why I'm making skin packs only to mods that are mostly stable. I hardly add anything new to ORA, Diable or Scy anymore. That last one should get some skin packs too some day.

Barebone update for Starsector 0.95a. It doesn't leverage any of the new features yet, but should work fine nonetheless.

Earliest save compatible version: 0.92
