Re: [0.6.2a] Blackrock Drive Yards v0.6.6

I've heard SO much about this mod at this point (lots of "noooooo! how will I live without my <x>!!!!" type posts, etc) that I'm starting to get super curious.  It sounds like there's a goodly bit of added content, is it more in the "lots of additional flavors of existing things and SUPER MEGA KILL KILL SHIPS" camp or more like "really interesting mechanics with great balance"?  Intriguing!

BDY ships are very nimble. Burst Jets kept me using a (Blackrock) Nevermore in my most recent Exerelin playthrough a few months ago, even though the bulk of my fleet was Valkyrians -- despite having higher-OP options available, it was just too agile to give up0.

So how does someone with no experience whatsoever in Starsector modding help fix it?  :P

if thing.dependency < 6.5:
     thing.newerversion(6.5)

?

You would have to help Cycerin rewrite fleet generation lists and rules to account for trade, defense, patrol, bounty, and attack fleets; and help construct an economy for the Blackrock home system. Those are two things, at any rate.

I'm just gonna go ahead and leave this one to the professionals, really.

yeah the .65 patch broke everything, then essentially salted the earth so that the old code could never take seed again.  Mod-makers are essentially having to rewrite things mods scratch, thus is why the mod races to play went from 20+ to.....7?

Actually, not very much had to be rewritten.  The difficulty is just wrapping your head around it and creating new artwork for market conditions, stations, etc.

This ... sounds oddly like something I'd enjoy.  Except the artwork - my grandmother was an oil painter and my little sister inherited every bit of it, dammit.

I started laughing really hard at that description. I have no idea why, but that's just really awesome.
So did I. :)

Speaking of which, Valk, any chance we'll get to fly glorious red and white triangles of death ere the 0.65 cycle is up, or are you in "wait and see" mode?
