- An alternative to colonies.
- New exploration content across the sector.
- A bunch of new skills and AI cores with their own set of unique aspects.
- New Ships and Weapons

I really like the idea of the Improved Misc. feature, as stars with absolutely nothing, no planets or rings or asteroid belts at all seem kind of weird given our current understanding of star system formation.

On the other hand, some players might not want to make the game easier by adding significantly more loot; perhaps in some future release, there could be an Improved Misc. option that would enhance system generation without adding much extra loot.

Excellent mod, though; really appreciate how easy it is to tweak sector size without having to go edit configuration files, as well as the Improved Misc. feature.

I wanna keep the amount of settings to a minimum, so probably not gonna add options to further modify how much it modifies the misc systems.
Generating the starsystems planets is also done in an entirely different part of procedual generation than the Improved Misc, and im not quite sure if i wanna modify those or not, but i may look in to adding stuff for it in the future.

Updated the mod to 1.1.0

This version brings lots of improvements to the chiral system, from nerfing the ships gotten from it just a bit, to making it easier to find, and also adding content for people that do not have the Automated Ships skill in their playthrough. Many issues/improvements were reported/suggested by Avanitia so thanks to them.

This version also now requires Combat Activators as a library mod, get it here: https://fractalsoftworks.com/forum/index.php?topic=26410.0
This mod also requires Lunalib 1.5.6 or above, so make sure to update that.

Quote
Changelog v1.1.0
-> Integrated "Combat Activators" mod.
-> Added a new bit of exploration content for the chiral system.
-> Added a bar event that gives you the chiral systems location.

-> Outposts now generate after remnants and ruins, to ensure that they will never take any space reserved to them.
-> All chiral ships have have front-shields instead of omni shields, and have slightly reduced speeds.
-> Fixed some wrong ship data for chiral ships.
-> Fixed a station in the chiral system not being hostile
-> Fixed a mistake in the chiral hull hullmod description.
-> Might have Fixed a rare crash during the chiral system generation.
-> Fixed some planets generating twice in the chiral system.

Why do the best mods have such unassuming names or are just downright hidden?
This is now a must have on my modlist.
Thanks a lot

Well i did ask the moderators to put this in to the "Content Expansion" section on the mod index since it adds its own content, but they put it under utility for some reason.
I do have to admit that i am quite bad at names though haha, but i wanted to keep it general since in the end this mod is being a place for me to put whatever i am experimenting on in to.

Thanks for the mod! The hyperspace clouds setting is especially appreciated  :D

One problem I'm having though is that the settings don't seem to stick. I've tried tweaking them via F2 but they revert to their original values as soon as I reopen the settings page. Do they only apply to brand new playthroughs?

Just to make sure, you are pressing the save button before leaving? They should never revert after leaving otherwise.

I'm an idiot *facepalm*. Yeah I wasn't saving. It's my first time using the interface and I didn't realize there was a save button and the upper left hand corner. Sorry for the trouble and thanks again for the fantastic mod!

Thank you for making this mod. The Procedual Generation Config and Parallel Construction are very useful. Could I get your permission to translate this mod and your LunaLib, and share them on the chinese forum? I shall credit you and give the original link, when I finished, I will link back here.

Feel free to translate Lunalib, it isnt complete but it has some of the strings externalised now, though not all of it yet. If you need anything to make translating it easier feel free to message me on the Unofficial Starsector Discord at Lukas04#0856.

I dont think i would want anyone to translate RAT at the moment, none of the strings are externalised and i update it rather frequently.

Thanks for your permission and kind offer.  Currently there are no translated mods in chinese forum require LunaLib. I guess I will learn to translate the scripts while waiting until RAT gets a somewaht stable version  :)

I tried starting up a new game, and selected Chiral Sector theme to be on. But the game crashed before I could load up into the campaign layer. Checking the starsector.log pointed to something in the Chiral theme, so I loaded the game up and tried turning Chiral theme off. And the game loaded up fine.

Unfortunately, loading up successfully has overwritten the log showing the error.
And when I tried a new game for the 3rd time, with the Chiral Theme active, I didn't get the crash. Also, of note, I was doing the same Nex start each time, which was a start with a player-owned colony. Not sure if that might be an issue.

Dang, I wish I copied that crash log.

EDIT: ooh, new version posted to discord. v1.2.0.  I'll have to grab it.
