Thanks for the mod and opportunity to start modding, I modified the code for personal use to destroy any debris\derelict wrecks that fly over the map to prevent bottomfeeding from faction wars. So getting a capital is only posssible if it was actually fought.
Further modification I'm dreaming to use is an ability to disable "survey missions" or make them a bar event and only when commissioned.

I've had this mod on for a couple playthroughs and have been enjoying the rustbucket fleet and stingy markets (good work on that! I like the mod even if I'm about to get a little annoyed), and initially liked the idea of stingy recoveries until I realised I'd gotten to the midgame and completely failed to find a single incident of unopened sleeper pods or other similar special salvage events.

... and so I checked Github to discover that the mod runs a constant script that purges all special salvage data from salvagable entities (and debris fields) in the player's current location, not just the ship-is-recoverable salvage data.

I feel this should be pretty clearly signposted if it's an intentional difficulty change because it's not mentioned anywhere and I went in with the assumption it would only touch the vanilla "ship is recoverable" salvage special. It also probably should be changed because it appears fairly aggressive and could easily break mods or even vanilla (I haven't checked but iirc there's an issue on Github about it breaking the Hamatsu interaction)

Dang! I was just about to pick this up and run a new game with it too. Too afraid of having things irreparably break = (

I like this mod.

I want to mention that during mid-lategame I have many frigates from shops, and few capitals from derelicts, but almost none of cruisers

So I need to buy them from those bar TriPod traders or wait till I get heavy industry at colonies.

This way gameplay is much more interesting, because you need to have colonies now so you could fight high level fleets of Hegemony/Remnants and bounties (or you losing too much frigates, even capitals)

Cheers

Love the mod. In particular, I like stingy recoveries ("Remove all ships from salvageable debris fields and always require a story point to recover a ship...").

Suggestion: also include an option to remove all capitals floating in the middle of nowhere ready to be taken, including XIV legions. I know, I'm sick.
