Well this is awesome, I finally figured out how to run it and it's very cool, so thanks to all parties. I would definitely recommend someone compiling a "plug and play" download, where all the required things are already in, all or at least the best integrated factions are already in, so all's one has to do is unzip the file into mod and press "play starsector." You can put a disclaimer "if your computer is garbage toaster, don't download this." I just say this because having to download seven different things to play a single mod is very autistic and kind of an unintentional barrier to entry to people that are not usually digging through their c drives to modify things. Just my two cents

Putting together a "plug and play" download means you have to keep track of updates of multiple mods, do work to maintain it when the updates happen, you have to obtain permission from every mod author (because you're redisitributing their work), you have to host it which can start costing significant amounts if your download gets popular. Is downloading and unpacking a few .zip files really difficult enough to justify all that?

And... autistic? Seriously?

Thank god two cents isn't a lot of money, so even if you see it lying on the ground you don't really have to go out of your way to pick it up.

A general mod manager/download tool would be nice, but you know what they say about wishes and horses.

Stuff about being too lazy to click on 5 links
And maybe mod authors want to keep control on how their mod is distributed, knowing how many people are playing it, having the liberty to take it down if they feel so... And even more importantly, not forcing Dark.Revenant to play the bug report call-center for other people's mods (and have to upload a new version every-time any mod have a new version available).

Guffah!  get a grip, man.  7 files?  wow, ever add mods to skyrim or fallout 3/NV?  this is way easier to install, both in number of files to download (7!!!) and simplicity.  all you have to do is dump it all into a folder.  the only way i wish this was easier would be if windows would let me select multiple zip files and let me extract all of them to the same location in one go.  Unless im doing it wrong, i can highlight them all and then it just extracts the first one i highlighted.  slightly annoying, but only because literally everything else about this modding process is super easy.

My method for installing mods: Open one tab with the mods forum in it. CTRL+Click on the threads for each mod I want to download. Seek to each that I know has special requirements like Scy's TwigLib. Download LazyLib and shader lib from the links from any of the threads, again ctrl clicking. Now, I have tabs open for each mod I want to download. One by one, I download each and x out the windows they generate, and narrow it down.

That is my process for updating mods on SS.

And if you are using Version Checker, you only have to do this ONCE per Starsector Update. :o

I did not bother with version checker because I am so used to the landscape of Minecraft mods, where people never follow conventions. I just assumed mod-makers don't actually register with the version checker.

Well mayorate doesn't seem to work with it, but otherwise its relatively useful as a modlist.

Could this be related to me using unsanctioned mods (Shadowyards, Mayorate, Citadel, Junk Pirates, Neutrino & Diable) or it's just some generic random bug? I mean, is there any chance that a new game might avoid it, or my current set up of mods is doomed? :)
