Excuse me, when a click on the bounty for "Flight Into The Unknown" using the magic bounty system, nothing happens. What I just see is text saying "Flight Into The Unknown" and the bounty does not start. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? Thank you!

Using MagicLib 0.42.1rc3 I can't replicate either of these issues, as far as I can tell they work as they should [1] [2]. Do you have any further information?

With FITU MagicLib parses the bounty and says it's correct (278499 [Thread-3] INFO  data.scripts.bounty.MagicBountyCoordinator  - prv_gremlin_rb_rare_hybrid : VALID). I have no idea what could be causing an error like this for a valid bounty.

What's not working with the SIPD? In testing it shoots an "interrupted" beam, only drawing the tail end if it hits something, and does the burst explosion effect at the correct rate.

Well i dont knew that sipd is now a interrupted beam and thought it is broken. Though Linjar PK is still not loading shells to magazine. about FITU i have 0.42.1rc3 also and it is not loading. it is also valid in my list , it's just not starting. I can send you my mod list which is now running , mayby something from other mod is stopping it. I can also send you picture.

The LPK is due for a large overhaul really, probably an entirely custom projectile behavior. Right now it's really just left in as a curiosity.

I don't know what to do about the bounty, since it validates I feel like it's either an error in the MagicLib parser or core logic.

OK, I figured it out: FITU is set to require a system with the Agni theme, and if your sector doesn't have any MagicBounty will still spawn the quest, but it can't be accepted.

You should be able to fix this locally by commenting out line 253 ("location_themes": ["theme_prv_agni_presence",],) from \data\config\modFiles\magicBounty_data.json . May require spawning the bounty again in some new location.

DOWNLOAD prv Starworks v24.1 - Always delete the old version before installing a new one.

v24.1

Agni Down Spinneret is now correctly tagged as a small weapon, not large.
Temporarily removed the theming requirement for the Flight Into The Unknown bounty.

RELEASE NOTE: This update is not neccessary if you always have the Agni enabled.

Hello,

Created a user simply to say that if your mod includes [REDACTED]-overwriting space bugs that are immune to most regular weapons, it'd be very nice if you listed that on the first page along with the other mod content so that you don't have to discover it once you're already well into a game.

Thanks

And spoil the surprise?

Agni do not overwrite any Remnant systems, they are spawned after the Remnant theme is fully assigned.

Added a little teaser to post 1. Heed the warning b-acon.

I came here to see if there was a way to disable the Agni, and find that clearly I'm not the first person to get absolutely *** sideways by stumbling across them by mistake.

prav your response makes me think that you have an opinion that discovering the Agni is some kind of fun, wacky surprise that will make users of your mod giggle or chuckle or derive some kind of enjoyment from what they see.

It's not.

It's frustrating, it's disheartening, it's crushing to watch 5 frigates and 3 destroyers completely obliterate a 25+ ship combat fleet that has so far been trouncing its way through the stars - not by unique moves or really good use of flux/damage/armor/shield capabilities, but simply because those enemy ships are absolutely immune to (my estimate here) 85% of weapons (at least the weapons on my fleet). Shot after shot after shot after missile after missile after missile I watch impact on these things and do nothing. No flux damage, no armor damage, no hull damage, just... nothing at all.

That's not fun, that's bad design. But hey, your mod do what you want with it.

Not sure how long these things have been in your mod, I know I'd used prv Starworks a long time ago and never saw them but I guess I'm removing this mod from my list and starting a new campaign after finding these things.

You can disable them in prvSettings.json

If you're shooting at an Agni and it's not taking damage it's likely because you're hitting a Cocoon, the frigate and female cruiser ship system, which absorbs a fair bit of damage before the charges run out - you should see some light grey damage text tallying up your impact. They recharge pretty slowly, so wearing them down is both viable and expected.

In testing Agni fleets tend to end up with close-fought wins against regular faction fleets of the same size, with around half the Agni retreating with heavy damage by the time the dust settles.

A known issue is that they're a little underconned, report as a little too easy, when they should probably be a little overconned instead. Not entirely trivial to fix since I have to adjust both ship FP and fleet spawn sizes without wrecking anything I'm otherwise happy with.

I'd offer to send you my save file but I already did a sweep of mods and started a new campaign, deleted the old save.

Perhaps I just had a really bad fleet set up. I don't claim to be ANY good at fleet design and weapon choices, but if my over a dozen frigates and half dozen each of destroyers/cruisers can take on the same size or even larger enemy forces and win in various (mostly pirate admittedly) combat engagements, I figure I'm doing okay. Suddenly I'm seeing a fleet less than half my size completely shatter my fleet and kick my teeth in with virtually zero losses.

What is the refresh rate on the use of the cocoon? Because there were several points where suddenly I'm doing damage again, get hopeful that maybe it was just a game glitch causing no damage then it seems like only a few seconds later my hopes are dashed and they're immune to all damage again.

FWIW I have around a hundred mods. It's a very real possibility my gameplay experience is completely saturated with sub-optimal ships/weapons/builds such that it whacks out my gameplay versus what these things were tailored against during testing. At the same time, they shouldn't be tailored against perfectly optimized builds because I would think that most players are mixing and matching like I do with all the weapons and ships and crap.
