I've inquired about special tech several times, but I've never gotten the bomb weapon on the left, nor have I ever seen it in CE 1.23's internal files. What is it?

That was the reverse Ion bomb that only had one use: Recharging your Zoltan shield. That mechanic did not work anymore in CE I think... or did it allow to overcharge supershields beyond five bars? I don't remember, but I didn't work nicely. Should probably get removed from that image.

Nope, nothing beyond opening up the system upgrade pannel borders at the top, which has been done.

Or is it too much work for too little gain, especially if there is a warning in place?

You can do this by unpacking the mod, opening "blueprints.xml.append" in /data and searching for the "artillery" blueprint. Change its rarity value to 0. Repack the mod and patch it in. This will prevent artillery from appearing in shops.

Nevill wrote:Speaking of the warning, can it be rephrased in a way that would fit the text box? I know that with the amount of stuff the mod adds and with the text box being on the smallish side it is inevitable that some of it won't fit, but I still think it should be avoided when possible.

Agreed. I'll rephrase the warning once more so that it fits.

Nevill wrote:Are the changes that came with the AE in relation to resourses/weapons gained in events being visually shown rather than described hard-coded? I feel like they are the biggest offender when it comes to the text exceeding the window boundaries.

Its kind of hard to predict how much space these info windows will take, as that largely depends on how much loot you get and if a weapon is included. If the weapon has a long name it will make the window even bigger. But remember that you can always change the font size ingame yourself. I don't remember the hotkeys but they should be mentioned in the game options. Even just decreasing font size by one level below the default should make pretty much any CE texts fit the text window.

"EVENTUALLY".......... :roll:

I think artillery would perhaps be worthy of being an add-on to CE a this point... I've seen enough people buy the system and lose their save games, despite the warning, and it makes me sad. And it's utterly worthless in Infinite. I feel like it's my fault because I was the first one to start making artillery for the different ships, but hey... who could've known. :cry:

Artillery could work fine if all of the ships started out with the system. "One day" I will make a mod that adjusts all of the player ships to start with the artillery system and maybe substitute out another system or lower other stats to balance that.

Anyway, it doesn't seem like the OP clearly explains the problem with artillery and save games. Quite a few people have come on here and asked to fix the artillery problem, not understanding that it is simply beyond your control. Maybe you should add a little more about that issue? Perhaps in the modding limitations section, or whatever it's called.

Yo sleepy, I found a Zoltan Interceptor in the first sector with lv1 Shields. I mean, I know there are some ships with Zoltan Shield (like that one) and no Shields System, but lv1 Shields System is pointless. Plus, they'd send an Engi there to be on standby, despite the fact he'd not be manning anything. Slowie says it's your fault.

Have you been playing on easy? Cause that seems to remove augments from enemies (at last in early sectors?). On normal, this enemy will have Zoltan shields but no normal shields in early sectors. That requires a shield system present just like with Zoltan B, so its not pointless. As an Interceptor, the ships evasion will make up for its lack of shield defense. On easy the ship will be even more vulnerable, but it will start with decent engines, even in sector one.

I recommend you read through the troubleshooting section at the beginning of this thread.

There is no real option to save ingame, but you can exit the game and back up your continue.sav. Searching "How to save in FTL" will probably yield results that tell you how to do this.

Do you have any idea why Captains Edition is now cutting off the names of sectors? I'm seeing a lot of Industrial Secto and Hazard Secto, but then sometimes I see longer names just fine... :?

Also, I saw a crash on a recent video that occurred when somebody tried to jump to a store in an Engi Sector. Home Volume 512.

And finally, do you currently have any more plans for Captain's Edition? Or is it finally nearing its completion? There hasn't been an update for a while, but I myself don't know what you could add.

The sector names being cut of has been there for a while, but it only happens on the map screen and for certain name combinations. Nothing that can be done about that but radically shortening all names. IMO this is an acceptable glitch, sacrificing some clarity on the map screen for overall greater name variations.

:D I saw that crash vid too. I looked into that store glitch but I have no idea what caused it. I'm also not sure which version was used in that run, so it might have been fixed already. :?:

I keep pushing the next release cause I hope to integrate a full set of greeble graphics for all ships, we are almost done with that, just the crystal ships are missing and I'm working on them now.

There will also be a few new drones, most of which are crystal based. And I reworked endless loot a little, adding many new ship prefixes and reworked how they are applied to make them less random and more specific for certain factions and ship types (There is a new wiki page for the ship prefixes by the way.) A few selected weapon prefixes will slightly affect rarity and get marked as "rare" or "epic". The "epic" prefixes are all completely new and will appear very rarely.

The troubleshooting didnt help me or i didnt see it :D
I have the resource pack installed and I patched it all in the right order. Still texture bugs. A lot of them.
