What do I change the values to so I essentially remove these thresholds, same for what isn't listed?

Is it possible to add support for adjusting the peak bonus as well as the threshold point?  I generally don't care much for the threshold systems at all, but completely removing them from certain skills with no other changes would have... interesting implications.  (Auxiliary Support)

Seconding this - my reaction to Auxiliary Support is that this skill would function and balance much, MUCH better if it was balanced on a per-ship basis, perhaps with the multipliers tweaked down a bit. However, being able to adjust both the DP scaling cap and the multipliers to prevent very stupid things happening with Ventures and the like would be a good runner-up and probably a vastly simpler code hack

okay so lemme get this straight,

in the base game some skills loose effectiveness as the total DP value of your fleet goes up

so I'm GUESSING that by setting thoses impossibly high the skills never lose effectiveness ?

or am I supposed to do the opposite ?

Yes, it's pretty straightforward: if you want to always benefit from the full extent of the skills, just set the DP threshold here to a value your fleet won't ever reach (a few thousands will be more than enough even if you were to run with dozens of capitals). Just be aware that's gonna be EXTREMELY OP though, as most of these skills are very powerful and the more ships they apply to at full efficacy the more your fleet will curbstomp everything (or cost much less logistics than expected), but that's pretty much the idea we're here for, so have fun  ;)

As for me, I just raised the values to about 2/3x compared to vanilla, so that they work at 100% as long as I'm still running with a reasonable fleet with nothing bigger than cruisers, and the decay begins when I progressively put capitals in the mix too: feels like a more balanced - and interesting - tradeoff to me.

I just want to echo the previous requests to allow tweaks to all threshold values in the skills branch.

I have a pull request to add Bulk Transport threshold, but here it is in the meantime.

Version 1.1.0
Download

Changelog:
- Added support for Bulk Transport (pull req by cman0014)
- Updated default values (thanks to Satirical)

I have a pull request to add Bulk Transport threshold, but here it is in the meantime.

Saw the pull request, realized it's been like 7 months since the last release :-[. Thanks, merged those changes.

This is almost exactly what I was looking for. Any chance there is a means of tweaking the "Special Modifications" skill to change the number of "Built-In" Hullmods permitted?
hey, could this have a version for the supply consumption treshold for makeshift equipment please?

I'll have a look at all these requests in this thread and put out another release with a bunch of the other params.

Hey, thanks so much for this mod! Finally I can have the skills fall off only in the late game, not in mid game already.

Can you add an option for the treshold of fuel consumption from containment procedures too please?

@stormbringer951
This mod needs to be revised for 0.95.1a-RC5
Code
{
  "carrier_group_fighter_uplink_fighter_bay_threshold": 8,
  "crew_training_flux_regulation_op_threshold": 240,
>  "weapon_drills_op_threshold": 120, < Using an old value, current is 240
  "containment_procedures_field_repairs_op_threshold": 60,
>>  "auxiliary_support_op_threshold":5, << No longer a skill
>  "phase_corps_op_threshold": 30, < Using an old value, current is 40
>  "automated_ships_op_threshold": 30, < Using an old value, current is 120
  "bulk_transport_cargo_threshold": 2000,
  "bulk_transport_fuel_threshold": 2000,
  "bulk_transport_personnel_threshold": 5000
}
Field Repairs was added, threshold is 240
Containment Procedures has an added threshold of 240
On a side note, players would probably like to change the Derelict Operations 6% to their liking.

I downloaded the .zip, but it decompresses it in a .cpgz file

Did you download it via the button on the first page? Which extraction software did you use? I get a normal extracted mod when I used WinRAR and downloaded it through the front page download button

Version 1.2.0
Download

Changelog:
- Updated skills compatibility and default starting numbers for 0.95.1a, and added support for configuring Derelict Operations DP discount % (pull req by cmp831)

Will probably get around to refactoring the mod and letting you edit all the numbers in a day or two.

Thank you for this mod. I'll wait the full release so player can edit everything
