This was one of the most well polished faction mods for Starsector. I hope to see an update eventually. No rush, just was one of my favs for the game

The code in this mod is quite nightmarish to understand, let alone update, it's highly unlikely that anybody except the author and/or 2-3 skilled modders on this forum can update the mod.

I have recently managed to make myself a patchwork version of Blackrock for 0.95 that, for the time that I played with it so far, seems to be working fine.
If Cycerin would be alright with it I would upload it somewhere and put the link to it in the replies here.

Since this question keeps coming up and since I still can't work on the mod, I took some time to think about it today. I'm ok with independent compatibility patches, provided:

- Any such update should be made available with the understanding that I do not explicitly endorse it beforehand, and without the expectation of me vetting it before or after it gets uploaded
- It should have its own version number for clarity in case of any future, fork-induced, bug reporting complexity

Hope that makes sense. I don't want this to become an excuse to force the mod out of hiatus (eg. requiring my direct involvement and oversight) which is why I am taking this hands-off approach. There might be an official stopgap update at some point in the future too, but again, nothing has been locked in that this point, so this is what I'll do for now.

This is nice to hear and I think a sensible approach.
Well, for anyone that wants to play with Blackrock in 0.95.1a I'll put the link to my patched version here:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vGXPTcAC1sFiwphizRN9TE-8hNU7h1wK/view?usp=sharing
It basically plays and functions the same as in 0.9.1a, just that it now works for 0.95.1a
I gave it its own, somewhat arbitrary version number, so that should cause no trouble.
It also needs GraphicsLib, MagicLib and LazyLib just like before.

I'm also maintaining a copy that I ported and posted to the Discord earlier today. https://www.mediafire.com/file/m4eofbd569nzb6e/Blackrock_Drive_Yards_95b2.zip/file
It's a straight update from the most recent official version with a weapon and ship tag fix as well as some colony changes to prevent decivilization due to industry penalties. In the unexpected event anything breaks, lemme know.

Super nice to hear that there's a working version out there now! Just noticed that both these are missing a fix to a known bug where some BDRY weapons don't spawn in markets.

In \mods\Blackrock Drive Yards\data\world\factions\blackrock_driveyards.faction you need to add the brdy_wep_bp tag:

Code
"knownWeapons":{
"tags":["brdy_com_bp", "brdy_mil_bp", "brdy_rare", "brdy_wep_bp"],
"weapons":[
],

Thanks for the heads up, should be fixed now.

Good call, thanks. Tart is working on Nebulous stuff for the time being so I've posted my copy to the Discord's mod_updates channel. If you're coming from there with a bug report, please direct it to me. I'm not messing with any balance so feedback should still go here.

I don't know what it was but the version post by Dal doesn't conflict with Adjusted Sector while Sebaa's does.

Updated with some campaign fixes for my copy. https://www.mediafire.com/file/m4eofbd569nzb6e/Blackrock_Drive_Yards_95b2.zip/file

= 0.9.5b2 =
- Added an unofficial_changelog document to mod folder.
- To prevent premature decivilization because of too many industries:
   * The colonies Lydia and Preclusion have been upsized from 10^3 to 10^4.
   * Vigil station has lost its military base. It retains its patrol HQ.
   * Limbo has been upsized to 10^4 and had its military base exchanged for a patrol HQ.
   * Thalm Listening Post remains 10^3 but has lost its light industry.
   * Bharata no longer has a Heavy Industry facility.
   - Seeing these changes requires a new game this once. Sorry!
- Changed the 0-Series Nevermore from BRDY-Rare to BRDY_Rare. It may now spawn.

The mediafire link I've posted works with Starsector 0.95.1a-RC6. :)
