When i try to play Endless CE it works perfectly fine but when i choose to jump to a new sector it doesnt give me the option to continue traveling through space or going closer to the federation base. So did Sleeper just remove the options in an update or i just messed up installing CE

Infinite hasn't changed for ages, chances are some mod you are loading after infinite is overwriting your exit events. Check your load order, maybe post it if the problem persists.

thank you for the responses Sleeper, on the topic of beam I understand you want to use it for different reasons functionally, however on a 'logical' point of view the mining / industrial beams are not directly made for combat but instead simply to mine and/or for industrial purposes. But in a way functions similar hence why I said a darker red/ brown instead of saying something like Green.

On some events I thought about for the science lab maybe in terms of quests could possible be the one with federation teraformers (you take samples of the [moss?] and show it has valid scientific existence then to destroy it while terraforming, Being a more peaceful option then attacking them while not being bribed or doing the bribes.) and also you get the moss samples as an augment possibly.

I can't think of more at this point however now I will keep a look out for them.




Also yea, that federation part makes sense, However I wish there was a possibility that some ships survived and not a complete and utter annihilation. Who knows, maybe a federation scout or fighter was still around or a single cruiser that gave you ASB aid in the end or a crew member of the bomber or what ever that is still around wants to join your crew because it has nothing else to do. However the current ending is okay, only problem is it can be repetitive... I had that event once 3 times in 1 run and having the most identical results possible (hell all 3 times was a heavy scatter laser as a reward, which I am not complaining but not sure if RNG forgot what R meant or if it was the only weapon).

If you want to salvage the run you could decide not to go to the crystal sector I guess. I'll look into it some more, but as far as I can tell the sector works... Infinite music compatibility patch should not cause problems though.



Removed Sector Names; FTL won't load at all now. Downloaded a Profile/savegame editor (FTL Editor V25) to see if I could find anything that could be tweaked to let me resume playing where I left off and still get the Crystal_Home beacon working. No dice yet.

This was in the Generic Sector Names patch regarding the Crystal Homeworld:

sector_data.xml.append

<mod:findName type="sectorDescription" name="CRYSTAL_HOME">
<mod-overwrite:nameList>
<name>Hidden Crystal Worlds</name>
</mod-overwrite:nameList>
</mod:findName>

EDIT2: Never mind all of that, silly me forgot Steam had been running in the tray when I hibernated (I think?) Closed and restarted Steam, launched FTL, and with the Generic Sector Names mod removed, I was able to jump to the Crystal Sector successfully. Thanks!! :D

Ok thanks for reporting back, that was really helpfull. The new version of the sector name patch should work with the crystal sector.

Am I allowed to make more questions or shall I simply move to PM's?
I just like to have insight on peoples designs choices and such and what was going through their head.

I wanted to have more insight on weapons now!

Scatter/ swarm weapons.

From what I can see, it's basicly similar to a normal counterpart. but does less/ half system damage with minor trade off's. I was wondering what inspired yo uto do weapons like that- considering you got them nearly everywhere in CE...
Light, normal, heavy scatter laser... flak scatter lasers, swarm missiles, flak swarm missiles, etc. and where did it start.

And for mines, I assume it was something to do with magnets and it exploding near the surface. However I am slightly surprised by the lack of Mines, especially due to the fact it's less then there are vanilla missiles and in this mod there is a whole lotta' missiles added in CE (makes me want to make the things I think there should be... I was originally gonna release the Mantis minelayer as a player ship before it got side tracked for some reason, could make it go with that mod quite easily)

your PSD events and such. I know I could check and try to pull it apart to see how it works but I would like to know how it works in the perspective of possibly having it as a weapon? I am on a spree of making weapon packs recently (with the ballistic mod being at a satisfactory 1.2 version atm, there is still more to come but the bulk of it is done. I will start doing laser and beam weapons now for my next pack) and in the near future I wanted to do spotter equipment. Things like TAG lasers (Target Acquisition Gun) and Narc missile beacon and other spotter 'weapons' in a mod I will make eventually and after seeing some of your weapons such as the PSD beam and laser(? idk, seems high velocity, I only see the explosion part after the part saying "lock on... 1000k.... 900k... etc). I was wondering how easy is that to change that up and have it as a 'weapon' for a player? I do realise that it's just 'advanced' animated bombs and such but still... Also wondering if I can pinch some assets.


Lastly: when FTL: overdrive, in a distant future, ever comes out, or what ever -remake of FTL that is more modder friendly. would you come back and start doing more modding for FTL? I am familiar that you are making your own game now and find CE basicly complete. But that still doesn't dismiss my question.

Also there are rumors that a possible another major update (well major in our terms.) for FTL coming, speculating it to come around summer along with Android OS support. This is based on the fact they were doing android OS stuff after the iPad and also apparently Ben prunty got back to work for FTL again... and if he's making more sounds for FTL, there must be something coming (new sectors?). that's more of the line of theory... Ben prunty did tease us and there is the vague hints on the AE release and such that says there may be some additional stuff- even if it's minor it may open up more FTL opportunities...

Well, I'm back. Last time I was here, it was January and I couldn't get this mod to work at all. And, well, yeah... same issues as before. Sort of. I had a fresh install of FTL and installed just Captain's Edition and it's resource pack. It worked perfectly for a few hours. I only stopped because I had to go to work. Upon returning, I'm plagued with constant freezing. The game loads up, I can do whatever I want, but after about a minute of actually playing in the game (not the menu) it just freezes up. I can be in battle, sat doing nothing at a node, it doesn't matter.

Fresh install of the game, just CE Resources and Captain's Edition installed, with that load order. Worked at first, but doesn't after returning to after a few hours. Any tips, or shall I just ditch this all again and try in another half a year, see if it wants to work for me then?

Can't say much judging by your vague (and log-less) description, but it seems your operating enviromnent (system) may be really messed up.

Okay then, where might I find the logs then? If you're talking about the crashlogs in the FTL folders, it hasn't generated any, much to my own annoyance.

EDIT:
Well, finally got windows to display the dialogue box when a program stops responding. The error message I've gotten from that is AppHangB1. Seems to be a recurring problem across a few Steam games, though I find it odd that it's only a problem when I install this specific mod into FTL. Either way, I'm open to any tips, but I'll be trying some solutions I come across through searching that.

Anything odd in SMM itself when patching in the mods? It also gives a fairly lengthy log.
