Thank you for the mod, it's nice to see that the OG Hyperion will live on.
However it seems that the ability is still the new one with no teleport allowed if the flux is higher than 0.

I tried to fiddle with the phaseteleporter.system that both Hyperions use but it doesn't seem to work sadly. Any idea on how to modify it ? Maybe create a new ship system but the zero flux condition seems built-in the game.

Oops! I can't believe I forgot to check for this bit. Fixed that now, thanks.

Gonna try this out just to see how well the old hyperion can perform against the new one.

What's your grudge with the new one? It is better in player hands and much less annoying in enemy hands.

We must be reading different threads because i dont see anyone saying they have a grudge against it.

Lemme rephrase that.
Why do you think there is a need for a retired, less balanced version of the Hyperion?

Okay. How do I need to play it in order to be fun that cannot be done with the new one?

Bro no one is forcing you to download the mod, just let the people have fun the way they want.

One way to advance this conversation would be to describe a build and tactic that I could think of and is not reproducible on the current Hyperion.
If you don't have anything constructive to add, please let someone else answer as we already established that others can have fun with the mod.

heh, that's too bad for me. I prefer the new ship system (though it's hard to use), but want to keep the old chassis in my game.
