Hi - welcome! The Modding forum, or this thread if it's a shorter question.

Hey!
There's no information (or I didn't find any) about replacing Vanilla classes.

Hey!
There's no information (or I didn't find any) about replacing Vanilla classes.
Some vanilla classes, like industries, abilities and contact missions, are specified in their CSVs, so you just change the classname specified there.

For other things (pirate base generation is one), the class instance is generated by the game's "lifecycle plugin". You have to either replace that plugin (not recommended for compatibility reasons), or else run code that removes the existing script and adds your own.

For detailed help, I'd suggest a new thread in Modding, or the Misc modding questions thread.

I have a question. I was trying to make a fighter that acted in combat as a sensor drone with a wider-than-typical sight radius compared to other fighters. The idea is it would reveal more of the map while out attacking the enemy than other fighters would. I know sight range can be adjusted on frigates and above, but trying the same trick on a fighter returns an error with the script. Is this possible? If it is, do I need to do this in another way?

This is also my first post here. Been lurking for a bit, mostly checking the mod index for more toys to play with. Nice to meet you all. :)

EDIT: So I figured out the problem wasn't my script, but user error. I had entered the wrong name for the hullmod in my hull_mods.csv, both for ID and path. Oops.

On top of that though, I can confirm fighter sight range can be modified via hullmods! So that's neat.
