i just played with this mod for the first time and i have to say... imbalanced... I am sorry to say but some of the ships are simply without a counter, or atleast one that i can figure out.

I mean they swarm, coolio that should mean their carriers are vulnerable, but nope. Well atleast they don't have omni shields... ah wait they do that aswell (seriously? a pirate faction with omni shields? some hegemony and neutral ships have that but most of the time the remnants and tri tachyon are the posterfactions for this kit). So at least they don't have a long sustain? ah wait they do that aswell... because they don't have balistics (how is that a weakness, btw?) what about flux capacity? Finally an opening but wait: They vent like there is no tomorrow. (the part about abysmal venting rate in the description of the mod is a lie, plain and simple) 

Seriously this mod is a walking cheat. Maybe list in the description that it is completely impossible to beat some of the most basic cruisers with any weapons in the game upto date..... sorry but this mod is simply not for me.

[0.95a] Red (0.9) Mod
« Reply #288 on: May 02, 2021, 05:15:10 AM »

This is a major update, so better keep your run as is until you're finish.
So, start a new round if you're playing the mod for the new patch.
Or the game crashes.


Edit: Before anyone asks for 0.9 Red. Yeah, there iswas a crash where if you don't have Blue the procedural generation would try to call something that doesn't exist for relations. It's gone and fixed. You can download again.

Red: Download RAR / ZIP

There isn't really a way to convince you otherwise, nor this mod will ever intend to get anywhere near being balanced in such a way. It's not really my intention nor the original author's goal anyway.

I kinda just wanted to make cheap ships that zoom around fast while still being too weak unshielded to stand around for over a few seconds. And watch how many fighters could fill an entire screen without actually look too broken or how far would some builds like a Frigate with a very big gun can still compete against the more complicated ones. Fun fact: The Gretly, that same frigate, just dies when it rams once to an Atlas test dummy.

Thanks for at least trying out the mod, some criticism really helps set a boundary that tells me if I go too far with these ships. Or at least if I could ever see it. .m.

any chance of making another version without the anime portraits or is there a way to remove them manually. Personally i'm just not a fan of having this dark, gritty universe then proceeding to have a blood red hatsune miku obliterate my fleet. Other than that though I really like the mod :D

Sure, I'll post a faceless variant, with only the Oculian bot as the actual portrait.

Though the lore kinda writes it in that the Armada has this animesqe physique was more of a marketing purpose to sell their cookies. Additionally the idea of the cookies itself, the faction's premise, is fairly a dead giveaway where the faction already went to.

Perhaps since their lore is (from what i've gathered) kinda rogue ai'ish i'd defnitely be down to see some glitched versions of the current portraits kinda like what the [REDACTED] admirals look like

Well handing Excel the altered file does work... but why don't I take a sec to teach the man to fish?  ;)
From the start I'm gonna assume you know how to reach the Starsector game folder. Since putting mods in the game folder is the only way for them to work and you are.. well.. here. The mod site.
First go to the mod, "Oculian Armada" in this case, you want to edit in your "Mods" folder.
Open the "data" folder. -> Then the "world" folder. -> Then finally the "factions" folder. This is where who gets what portrait is decided along with some other things.
Your gonna need a program like Notepad++ in order to edit the files here. Its a free program and is literally just a buffed up notepad. Highly recommend it. If you don't have or don't want a program like that I'm afraid things end here. Otherwise on to the next step: Editing!
Left click on "ocua.faction" and "player.faction" and open them in your Notepad++ or similar program.
What your looking for is the list of "Portraits" near the bottom of the Ocua file. Its a short list it wont be hard to find. The player list has nothing but that list on it.
Now you have options; like just deleting the ones you don't want. They do need a portrait for both male and female tho so be sure to leave 1. It can even be the same 1 just copy it to both gender listings.
To actually SEE the portraits and determine the keepers go back to your mod file and look into "graphics" -> "Oculian Armada" -> "portraits"
In this case the 2 male portraits both work for not getting curb stomped by a red headed Miku. So you could just copy those 2 lines and replace the female listings with it.
"graphics/Oculian Armada/portraits/ocua_m1.png",
"graphics/Oculian Armada/portraits/ocua_7.png",
You can do the same for the "Player.faction" side. Or you can simply delete that file if you don't want those portraits yourself.
Another option you have is to copy a portrait list from the base game. You can reach those the same way you reached the mod lists. Just look into "Starsector-core."
Lets use Hegemony has an example. Just pull up their faction file and copy everything from the ""portraits":{" line all the way down to the "]," line and replace the same section on the mod file list. Now the Ai driven nutcases of the Oculian will all charade has upstanding hegemony officers in order to blend in with the rest of the gynocidal sector!  8)
Finally you could skip text editing altogether and simply Replace the portraits you don't want from the graphics/portraits folder with ones you do like from elsewhere. Just copy the name of the portrait your replacing onto its replacement and swap them out. Just make sure the 2 portraits are the same gender or in game descriptions could get weird lol.

« Reply #295 on: May 23, 2021, 11:22:47 PM »

This update comes with new script changes and an altered ship.
So, there's a possibility it will crash save.


Also, this is the return of the long awaited removed elite units, expect a bit of a spike when fighting some fleets.

Ah. I forgot to compile them with it. It's still unchanged, at least.

Edit: Done, it's added again.

Want to give an honest opinion about the mod, I kind of don't like the design/shading. Initially looked decent in the preview but after putting them inside the game, i feel like there is something lacking with this design, it doesn't match the game's aesthetics.

I like this faction, its the closest I can get to playing as a rampant AI.
Is there a way to get the big mobile station capital without using cheats/commands?
