combined Infinite space and Captain's edition (lots of bugs)

Postby NonPlayableYoshi » Thu Feb 13, 2014 5:06 pm

EDIT:after some testing i found it has too many bugs.
the main thing is that the enemies are not as hard as enemies in infinite space
and i don't think there is ever a empty beacon

Yea the subject speaks for itself.
Step 1: Use the Slipstream Mod Manager
Step 2:Download the New Captain edition and infinite space
Step 3:Make sure Infinite space installs AFTER captains
Step 3.5: IF they don't it will say captain's edition on the title and not infinite space. if that happens then rename infinite space to have the letter Z in front of it like so: ZInfinite_Space.ftl

the captain editions events still work so do infinite space
not sure about all of them. but for the most part its like playing the games combined

I wouldn't descrihe what you would get from CE as working though. IS will override most of its stuff.

Can the devs of these mods pop in and let us know what possible conflicts we might run into using this method? and thanks for posting this method, a lot of people were looking for something like this.

Cant be sure but I can offer some speculations:
A lot of CE events will indeed be overwritten and never appear. Weapons and gear might appear, depending on which lists IS changes . Not sure if contextual augments will work. The CE events that actually appear will probably still call their own ship events, using regular enemies. Enemies from these events will quickly fall behind as the player progress, because enemies do not automatically scale in IS.

Loading the mods together is not at all a new idea by the way, people did indeed do this before. I thought that this is the usual thing friends of these mods try out sooner or later. :roll:

ok well people have done it before. but this is the first time it worked out this way for me thats why i posted it. i play tested it like i said. and ill have to replay to test it and see how hard the enemys are.
but for the most part it works great and yes the contextual augments will work. i'm not sure if they work with everything

What you did to combine CE and IS only works because SMM installs one mod after the other.
So IS overwrites some changes from CE and this makes it working ;)
This method works with every Mod :mrgreen:
But yes good idea :P
