You probably updated Slipstream while you had Strange New Galaxy loaded. So every time you added or removed a mod, it would default back to "Vanilla" which would be, Strange New Galaxy.

At first i have to say that this is a very nice mod.

I have two questions:

1. we have the new enemys treel, Uz'ran....
but why are there no new races like human, engi, rock, zoltan.
for example:

Treel
- give's manned systems one extra Level (like zoltan give power but now for System Level)
- 60 hp
- 50% repair speed

Uz'ran
- have selv regeneration (like engi med bot)
- do half combat dmg

Bronan

- have ability to stealth (with button like crystal lockdown power)

Quasaty

- Need dobble oxygen (so you need min oxygen level 2)
- double movment speed
- double repair rate

Celiak

- will lose hp if room has oxygen
- learn skills 20% slower
- have a 3th Level of skills

Antarien ships should only make holograhpik copys of crewman and than get a reward for leaving them at next planet.



2. is there any way to patch this mod together with the captain's Edition and it's add ons?

The reason for this is because it is not possible to add new races with the current modding tools. You can only replace the sprite sheet for each race, effectively making it a reskin. Also, it is not possible to add new abilities (say, healing crewmembers in the room).

This could be done by making the Antarien ships start with a dummy augment that can trigger the reward as an event. There is no other way to do this.

Yes, there is, but Metzelmax would have to modify parts of the mod in order to prevent CE's content from interferring with everything else. It would be a huge task, so it doesn't seem likely that Metzelmax would update it.

But is it balanced? Does this mod keep the game difficult and keep the balance of risk/reward?

This mod is fucking awesome. Seriously.

I so very much love how each different 'race' remains consistent with their traits. Whenever I see an Anterian (or if I'm in Anterian space) I know that they're going to be quite hard to take down unless I can keep their drones at bay (heh), for example. The ships that you can play are so well thought out, too! Most of the ships seem to have their own challenge, instead of it just being 'this ship is cool 'cause it has special gun' like most ship mods. Even if it was just a great big ship mod, I would still play it, but it's so much more and that makes me very happy indeed.

Seriously, people need to give this mod a lot more attention.
