I go full armor on the best, i also have a hull mod that further increase armor at the price of the shield, wait i think its vanilla, anyway, they barelly ever make it through my armor and i can shoot really often. Sure once in a while if i want to sajuuk the hell out of a ship i have to hold fire a few second for the flux to quickly fall down. Max dissipation, full armor, weapons that are low flux, with the amount of mounts you dont want high OP weapon but lots of smaller one will easily compensate. main gun on main target and everything else on auto-fire and it deletes almost everything really fast.

Holding fire will make the ship come closer to you wich prevent them from skirting your max range and flee. Let them come close then open up and see the firework. I also have the hull mod that make zero flux boost active at any point as long you are not firing, ever saw a 121 speed sajuuk-khar coming in right nexdt to you gun slient then unleash hell? well i love doing that.

Gak cannot attach imiage because it goes past 192kb... can we get into 2022 already? 192 is the size of an icon these days...

Or just use weapons that interfere with opfor movement:) Or just max out your ranged mods.

Download the bombasticmori 0.95a version, change the mod_info file in the mod folder to the current game version of '0.95.1a-RC6'.

That's it really.

Commissioned Crews is actually pretty easy to support; you can implement it yourself if you want, all the instructions are in the thread, and there's a template.

It took me about an evening; you might need longer, but it's simple enough once you grasp the basics.
Sadly it's just not clicking with me. I've never programmed so...

Well, double post not withstanding I've managed to cobble together a 'Commissioned Crews' bonus for the Hiigarans thanks to a lot of help from Timid (original author of 'Commissioned Crews').
I want to thank them again for their patience regarding my clueless self.

Let me know if the link doesn't work, make sure to read the instructions as it needs to be merged with the main mod.

For me it doesnt seem to work as they always skirt at max range and bigguer ship can tank just enough to leave when facing big wall of them. That way i can chase them and just not care about being shot. I still hate reapers tho, dang i hate them.

Let me know if it works.

By the way, I was poking around Nexus Mods and saw something called "Hiigaran's resurgence" which seemed to have been forked off of an older 0.9.1a build... and still used for 0.9.1a.
Looks pretty dead though, anybody ever play around with that one?

So I was having an odd issue. My Hiigaran bombers were acting weird. Not doing bombing runs and just hanging out at their carrier. I looked into the files and found they had been set to SUPPORT rather than BOMBER. Changing it to BOMBER solved the issue of them not going out to attack. Was this something that was changed recently? Is it possible another mod changed the file?

Edit: Ah I see the mod is effectively without someone working on it. How would I push or suggest the update that fixes the previously noted issue? I would adopt the mod but I have barely any idea how to mod things in StarSector so that would likely be a bad idea.

Sadly, unless the original author picks it up again or it gets adopted by someone it'll stay pretty much "as is".

That's life I guess.

It's easy to fix that yourself. Go to "Hiigaran Descendants\data\hulls" and open "hii_saari.ship"
You can just paste
Code
"builtInMods": ["ground_support"],
in the line before "builtInWings": [], So it'll look like:
Code
...
    144.5,
    10
  ],
  "builtInMods": ["ground_support"],
  "builtInWings": [],
  "center": [
    81,
    149
  ],
  "collisionRadius": 182,
...
Personally I would use "advanced_ground_support" since the Saari can hold 950 crew. Advanced ground support goes up to 200 extra strength instead of only 100.

Hello! Where I can find Hiigarian Dreadnought in the game? It's my 3rd playtrought with this mode and I couldn't find it even in Prism Port. I'm not interested in spawning it  but I need a hint where to look!Is it on a distant systems far from the core world or is it a blueprint find in ruins? Has anyone manage to find it?

???
Do you need approval?

I mean, it's still good to ask but he did write "This mod has been abandoned by its main author for now. If you want to update/remake it, feel free" into the  first post.
I'm pretty sure that means you're in the clear unless he decides to change it later or it gets officially adopted.  :-\

PS: Did you remember to give the Troop Ships ground support and check the bomber AI?
