Love the work. Super fun mod. I have 2 bugs to report though.
1. Game crashes consistently any time option to "gamble again" is chosen on gambler ship
2. Regenerative teleport tele upgrade is non functional (At least on bishop C -- Teleporter was not level 4).

Glad you're enjoying the mod!
Luckily, both of those bugs have already been fixed in the upcomming update, which should hopefully be out soon. Thanks for the report.

Hello guys, thanks for the amazing mod as always! I hope my following suggestion would make the mod even better than now. :D

I like the variety of options that some of the augments provide. For example the Emergency Manual gives you an option to do crazy things like cutting down your enemies’ reactor (at a huge cost). But if you don’t want to do that, you can always get a free scrap.

Now the problem is that a lot of those “freebies” (like free scrap) require you to do a bunch of clicks, and it can get a bit tiring after a while. I mean, everyone likes to have free stuff, but I personally prefer a bit more streamlined experience. Perhaps it would be best to automate or even get rid of those small freebies options? Just a thought.

Another augments that fall into a similar category are the ones that produce free resource on empty beacon, as well as the salvage mission option. Again, I feel they’re uninteresting ways of getting free stuff that doesn’t add much to user experience.

BTW, thank you for changing up the empty beacon menu from several updates ago. I think that’s a great change. :mrgreen:

Thanks for making and updating the mod. It's great!

Question, though: is the mod no longer compatible with the FTL Profile Editor? Every time I try to launch it I just get an error popup that says 'Error parsing FTL resources' and I swear it used to work some versions ago.

Does the challenge difficulty affect the vanilla ingame difficulty!? Or is it a combination of both!?

It's a combination, both difficulties have different effects. Normal FTL difficulty select effects things like enemy scaling, enemy AI, scrap/resource gain, and the final flagship. The start menu difficulties impact other event related things instead.

Postby Mositron » Sun Dec 27, 2020 5:37 pm

Ok thx, lots of changes this time, looking forward to it :)

Edit: Just started a run before, selected HARD and the second highest setting for your difficulty, where the fleet gets a head start with 1 jump (CHALLENGE if i remember correctly?)
So i just finished sector 3 and in none of them there was a fleet catching up!? Is this on all of your difficulty settings!? Because then i´m going back to version 4.3 ...
