Haven't run into much of the AI stuff from here yet.  But Exegetes is incredibly annoying in similar ways.

It has the speed and maneuverability of a Hound, the tankiness of a Lasher, and the firepower of a small destroyer.  It outruns anything without Safety Overrides while also outlasting them - and anything WITH Safety Overrides will start screaming about combat malfunctions right around the time they finally catch up to it.  It is ridiculous and stupid and, especially, extremely annoying to play against.  Either you swarm it with fighters or you just wait - and wait, and wait - until its CR runs out.  Often the first option ends up turning into the second.  Of the two dozen or so times I've done the Persean weapons test mission, I think I've gotten an in-combat kill on this thing exactly once, and only because I had overwhelming force; every other time it either gets away clear or is killed in pursuit by my second. 

At the very least, cut the peak performance time down to about 90 seconds.

Is it necessary to score on the "In search of the Ark" mission before starting a new game? Or are those changes dynamic.

What is the EMP Charges? Is that something I can deploy?

Nevermind...It belonged to the PD Arc Emitter

Bug solved.

Love the mod and most of the ships. But damn that one redacted destroyer seems to have the flux stats of a battleship with the speed of a frigate. Killed so many of my cruisers by itself :P
Surprised me more than the dorito boys the first time I fought it cause it was so inconspicuous.
Applied a nerf to the Lustre, it's working as designed, but i think it was slightly overtuned.

I've reduced some of its stats, so it should be a bit less annoying to deal with.

The ships are spawned when the game generates the sector, so yes you have to get a high-score in the mission before starting a new game to get the better salvage.

Lustre is definitely overtuned :D   i've been using it as my test ship since it happens to come up on the first panel of the ship select, but goddamn is that thing tough.

Just wanted to say, though, love the mod!

The Spawn weights for some of your High Tech ships (Invigilator, Velox, Peluda) are quite high and drown out other high tech ships in Tri-Tach fleets especially.

Has anybody actually beaten Pocketful of Rainbows legitimately?  Because for me, every attempt gets ended by a cruiser burning in off screen, getting pummeled by a million sprockets, or being stuck in an endless loop of fighting off fighter waves.

That's the Transparence destroyer, right?  As I wrote earlier, I did, not too much trouble once I knew about shift-click to aim the ship, and also refitting at start to have a front shield conversion rather than omni (less to worry about in the heat of battle).  Also I cheesed with the map edges a fair bit.  If you get right up on the edge and the AI ships are not in close combat with you, they will back off at their best speed.  Then you can move in a bit, find the fastest/nearest one, and burn it down.  Repeat.  Also, while you're sitting on the edge and the AI ships are all backing away from you, that means they're spreading out, so you can pick out wherever the carrier is and zoom in and take it out once you've cleared the field a bit.

The main thing is to pick out a ship, move in on it, use the ship system to zoom in the last little bit and blast away at it with your turret (manual, but fires homing weapons) until it dies, then back off, vent flux, let your ship system recharge, repeat.  I think also right at the start there's a tendency for one of the cruisers to try zooming right at you at top speed and if you handle things right you can burn it down very quickly, even before any of the frigates - when it's zooming at you its shields are down, so you can do a lot of damage then.  If you take it out fast, that helps clear the field a bit.

They shouldn't have been, as they had lower rates than comparable vanilla ships, but i've tweaked them down a bit from there.

Are there any ways that I could get the Auditor's bp?

@GreyEisenwolf the thing that often worked for me was using console commands and typing: addspecial ship_bp shipname

afaik it doesn't work with all ships but its worth a try..

That was what I did (Because I deadbutt forgot about doing the bounty to get 2 auditors and 1 revi to the point it expired)
but I want to acquire the blueprints as in my recent run, I really don't want to cheat as much)
