                                                    FAQ:
                                                          - "How do I start the questline?"
                                                             - Talk to Jack Lapua on Asteria in Arcadia system, requires 20+ rep with Kesteven
                                                          - "Kesteven only has one market?"
                                                             - Their main planet is Asteria in the Arcadia star system
                                                          - "What do I do with Artifact Electronics?"
                                                             - You can trade them in at Asteria for Prototype ships and weapons after staring the second quest, or just sell them for cash.
                                                          - "Does this mod work mid save?"
                                                               - Yes, everything will automatically generate as if you started a new save.                 



                                                    Fair Warning:
                                                          - The difficulty is tuned higher than vanilla
                                                          - If you are not a Starsector veteran it is RECOMMENDED to turn on Easy mode / otherwise adjust the Settings file for your first playthrough
                                                          - This can be accessed by enabling LunaLib, and without it by editing the LOST_SECTOR_OPTIONS.ini file
                                                          - There's also TRUE STARFARER mode for all the challenge enjoyers, not recommended for the faint of heart

Lovely mod!
There is one problem that´s making it unusuable for me though:
Spoiler
Sometimes the ship that can get invulnerable for a few seconds permanently stays yellow and is untargetable for the rest of the fight.
I´m not sure what causes it, might have to do something with using the speedup mod? Happens pretty often when staying in the "strategy-screen" and letting the fight play out at x2, x3 or x6 speed. Also: most of my ships use beam weapons and fighters, maybe one of those might be triggering it too.

Oh yea it's SpeedUp, I'd highly advise against using more than 2-3x speed in combat. You were skipping 10 or more frames in a single tick which caused the system to skip it's turn-off check entirely, this transletes to 6fps or less real-time - which is real bad for your simulational accuracy and might cause other issues too.
Thanks for reporting though, I fixed the issues on my end, it should no longer happen so go re-download.

Hello !

Just a small comment to tell you that I'm having lots of fun building the Kestevan ships. Not only does their design tick all the boxes I like, but I'm a huge fan of the whole "Augmented weapons/systems" hullmods and the ship systems themselves are very refreshing (the Mercenary might be my new favorite destroyer). The Dragontail and Kingstork might be a bit too powerful (their base stats are impressive even for 8/6 DR frigates) though. On the other hand, the Malediction and Verity feel very balanced while filling a good niche.

I also like the lore of Kesteven a lot. They really feel part of the Starsector lore as a smaller corporation-type faction !

The new threats are frankly terrifying and even their hostile encounter music sounds threatening. They are sufficiently rare (at least in my current playthrough) that each encounter feel unique (the "have a nice day" took me by surprise). Again, great job !

The only thing I dislike is the sound of the Blackbird destroyer when it kills an ennemy. The visual cue is nice, but the sound is very loud/annoying. Do you know if it's possible to tune it down or remove it ?

Thanks for all the feedback.
Hmm, the Kesteven frigates could use some slight adjustments - I'll think about it.
Huh, that's the first complaint I've heard about the takedown sound, I'll make slightly quieter I guess. For now you can adjust it yourself by going to data->config->sounds.json and editing the volume of "nskr_takedown".

Huh, that's the first complaint I've heard about the takedown sound, I'll make slightly quieter I guess. For now you can adjust it yourself by going to data->config->sounds.json and editing the volume of "nskr_takedown".

Thanks a lot for this tip !

I'm thoroughly enjoying your mod. It's a very well-crafted mod combining quests / (some) new mechanics and a limited and well-thought number of new ships and weapons making it, in my mind, mandatory from now on for my next playthroughs.

I'm currently being demolished by the ennemy fleet during the 3rd mission, the ennemy cruiser is an absolute beast !

Hi. A couple of remarks :

- Pirate ships from the Underworld mod appears in Kesteven military market when, realistically, they shouldn't. Perhaps it has something to do with how Kesteven markets are configured ? (no idea) ;

- Bounties and derelict (probes, ships, etc) can spawn inside Kesteven outpost system ;

- Kesteven is almost never at odds with anyone with Nexrellin. After taking a look inside the files, it probably is that way because Kesteven only starter disposition is with the Hegemony (despite their alignements). While covering other authors' mods is not realistic, I think it could add more flavor to the faction by slightly adjusting its preferences towards vanilla factions. From what I've read, I think it would makes sense for Kesteven to not be well-liked by the Luddic Church (its still a corporation developping technology even though it is not as extreme as TT) and TT (it's a direct competitor) and more or less neutral towards everyone else (except of course pirates and the Luddic Path). It would make sense (I think) to cap Kesteven max relationship with TT (something like along the lines of 0.7) and the Luddic Church (something along the lines of 0.5), to give it slightly higher chances of having negative diplomatic events with them and slightly higher chances of having positives events with the Hegemony.

Adding on to this, Kesteven's outpost can also spawn alongside other things - in my current game, it's in the same system as Sentinel. Dunno if that's a thing you'd want or not, it's certainly made Scythe of Orion easier when I get around to doing it.

"Maybe eventually" I do have plans for a special cap encounter, but that is very far away.

Thanks for the feedback and nice words.
Kesteven just copies the Indie known ships so I guess UW adds their ships to that pool.
Good call on the Nex dispositions I'll mess around with them.

Outpost just picks a random nearby proc-gen system. Going to stop it from spawning in Sentinel system, and stop spawning random bounties, other stuff I don't really care to mess with.
