[0.95.1a] Special Hullmod Upgrades v1.2 - New Update!
« on: October 02, 2022, 06:37:43 AM »


Download here!



Requires a new save!

Mod Requirements:
LazyLib | MagicLib

Recommended mod:
Gacha-Smods



Mod Feature:
This mod enables you to utilize AI cores and colony items by installing them into your ships for various benefits. It gives more usability for these items and options for those who don't play the colony game.

Gameplay:
There are two types of hullmods that you can install on your ship. One uses AI cores called Armament Support System, and the second is Special Upgrades that use colony items. You can only install one AI core hullmod and one Special Upgrade hullmod at the same time. However, they are mutually exclusive in their own category.

They cost 0 OP but please keep in mind that if a ship with these hullmods gets destroyed in combat, the respective item from the hullmod is lost forever.

You may find yourself thinking why most of these give you that much of benefits while having minor detrimental effects. Well, my reasoning behind it is that finding an AI core or even a colony item isn't easy unless you have mods that provide you with effortless access, and no, I will never balance it around mods. I tried to scale the hullmod effects with their monetary value, colony usefulness, and rarity.

How to obtain:
Simply reach level 9 or above and visit Port Tse Franchise Station located at Mayasura star system. Bring at least 100,000 credits then look for a troubled man drinking in the bar.

If you are using Nexerelin's random sector mode. He will actively look for you in Tri-Tachyon owned markets if you reached level 9. Just visit the bar.

Certain hullmods will extend to the ship modules if installed on a modular ship like SWP's Cathedral or UAF's Supercapitals. The installation should be done on the main module.

High-Throttled Weapon Torque
Nanite Swarm Cluster

Custom Stats Mode:
If you ever felt that the bonuses are lacking or it's too much then this is a feature for you. This option allows the player to edit the stats of each hullmods. It can be enabled in the sphmu_options configuration file located inside the mod folder. This is disabled by default. I highly recommend that you use notepad++ for this.

The config file.

Potentially Asked Questions:
Spoiler

Q: Is this mod balanced?
A: It tried but it will not pretend to be that balanced.

Q: Is there a way for end users to change the stats of the hullmods? I want to apply my own balance.
A: There is! You can edit it in the configuration file sphmu_options located inside the mod folder. You need to enable the Custom Stats Mode in order for you to make changes. Take note that not everything can be edited. However, I assure you that you have the freedom in doing so.

Q: I want to disable a specific hullmod because I feel that it overlaps with another modded hullmod.
A: You can disable it via configuration file sphmu_options.

Q: Can I disable hullmod penalties?
A: Yes. Same from above.

Q: Can this mod be installed mid-game?
A: Yes.

Q: I installed it in mid-game but the Port-Tse station is gone, what now?
A: If that's the case then you can use the console command to specifically unlock all SHU hullmods. Open the console command and input SHUAllHullmods.

Q: Is this compatible with Nexerelin's random sector?
A: Yes.

Q: Is this safe to remove mid-game?
A: No.

Q: Losing the ships in combat with those precious colony items and AI cores are appalling. Will you remove that feature?
A: (lol)
[close]

Extra Feature:
This mod has a support feature for Gacha S-Mods to further your gambling addiction. There are intentionally hidden hullmods that can only be obtained through rolling the Gacha of S-modding. These Gacha hullmods give strong bonuses or just outright broken (SSR) if you are lucky.
Spoiler

Your Gacha-SMod settings should be like this, in order to roll the hidden hullmods.

 "GachaSMods_onlyKnownHullmods": false,
 "GachaSMods_onlyNotHiddenHullmods": false,

Port Tse Franchise Station
That shade of blue really doesn't work with dark mode.

Glad to see you back in the saddle.
Thanks! There, I changed it. I forgot that this forum has dark mode. :^)

Ignoring balance considerations for a moment, given the rarity of the Pristine Nanoforge and how common Corrupted Nanoforges can be, it feels like the difference between the Pristine and Corrupted hullmods should be more significant.

I don't know if it would be better to make the Corrupted hullmod worse, or the Pristine hullmod better; perhaps the former, given the relative ease of collecting a few Corrupted Nanoforges.

Finally, perhaps something for a future release, but it would be neat to be able to toggle specific hullmods via a configuration file, to let users disable hullmods that they feel are less balanced.

Should be able to add the hullmods with console commands for mid game save correct?

Also I can't seem to edit the src rar at all to make edits to the hullmods.

Finally, an actual use for all those spare items that I have lying around in storage! This'll be a welcome addition to my next run.

One question - would you be willing to add a config option in the settings.json that allows for more than one special item/AI core hullmod to be installed on a single hull, and perhaps one that removes mutual exclusivity with vanilla hullmods as well for those that have them?

would there not be a way to learn these in a in progress game? Maybe spawning them with console commands?

Whoa this is very nice, looking forward to trying it out for my next playthrough

Some of the upgrades are gonna be overlapping with Extra Systems Reloaded Augmentations though, wonder if we can disable some of them

Finally, perhaps something for a future release, but it would be neat to be able to toggle specific hullmods via a configuration file, to let users disable hullmods that they feel are less balanced.

For the Nanoforge hullmods, I'll make some adjustments and probably tone down the corrupted version. I might as well throw an additional minor quirk for the pristine knowing how rare the item is.

As for the toggle option, that's not a bad idea. For now, it's duly noted.

One question - would you be willing to add a config option in the settings.json that allows for more than one special item/AI core hullmod to be installed on a single hull, and perhaps one that removes mutual exclusivity with vanilla hullmods as well for those that have them?

Sadly no, I will not add such options. The mutual exclusivity and incompatibilities will remain as it is.

Should be able to add the hullmods with console commands for mid game save correct?

would there not be a way to learn these in a in progress game? Maybe spawning them with console commands?

I will eventually change the way of obtaining the hullmods; I'll make it more convenient for those who will add the mod mid-save.

Thank you. Unfortunately, I don't play ESR, rather I use Exotica Technologies so I can't help you with that. Though the suggestion of having a toggle on/off option for each upgrade in settings.json is a welcomed idea.

With all the mods I have to integrate AI cores into my ship, it's a real good thing that the Hegemony only sends AI inspections to planets.

Oh yeah I'm still using ESR because of my current save but I'm pretty sure Exotica has their own Exotics in line with ESR's Augmentations though

Would you consider the option of enabling (maybe via a config option) the option to use some of these hullmods on modular ships? for example, the different sections on a Cathedral-class. Or have the effects of the hullmod installed in the central module affect the entire ship.

And what mods are these? I'm always looking for more ways to power up my ships.

Also totally going to add this mod for my next run.
