There might be a really small chance that it won't work, but I have checked several times and so far it has worked every time.

Only if stargateprovider asks for it to be moved. Just because something is functional or available for download doesn't mean it has to be in Working Mods.


Who should I ask when I want to move the thread?

A moderator, like Kieve or Sleeper Service, since they are usually around here.

I feel like I haven't seen UltraMantis for some time.

Done. It's rare that you'll need to PM me - I usually just skim "unread posts," since it's more reliable than the mod control panel.
I SEE EVERYTHING :shock:

And yeah, Mantis has been conspicuously absent these days. :? I hope those slave-trading psychic pseudopods didn't get him.

Soooooo... how's the progress on this mod doing? I still see it being a WIP but it's in the working mods section now :)

I've been on and off lately.

Nice mod!
But I think the end game is a little bit lackluster. After 45 jumps the Rebels just come and murder you. Granted you can battle flagship, but it doesnt win you the game. Maybe it should just pop a "you win" screen and then blow your ship up.

You maybe could use the secret sector to simulate the "Beat flagship" phase, where you get another 45 jumps until the rebels come again.

When I thought about a mod as this I figured that maybe you need a "lvl-Augment" so to speak. Something that determents how good your enemies will be. Could also be done by shield/weapon level.
Here is the Stuff I made:

And stuff is always better than no stuff, right?

I thought it already did. Or was that the pre-release version? Why was that removed?

And then it can be used again! Holy crap! Instead of facing the Flagship at the end, you face a "Boss" upon defeating allows the station to move. Thus creating:

Stations Job Endless! Do it! Do it! Do it!

I think the enemies got tougher over time regardless. Or at least that's what I thought kept happening as I'd get some systems built in to face 1-layer shield ships only to face 2 layers... so I prepare some more and 3-layer ships appear...

The "boss" would always be the Rebel Flagship. It can't be changed, because when the fleet arrives, it always triggers the Rebel and Flagship events.
How about a special choice for the end? It means you'll get to continue in freeplay mode after beating the Flagship if You want to.

Exactly. And then you're warped to a Crystal Sector (labelled as another Federation sector) to continue the game.

But why make it "You've defeated the boss, want to try freeplay?"
Maybe it should be "You've defeated the boss. Want to try again with the current ship?"

Then you get sent to another sector and have to prepare for another 45 jumps. Just like an old arcade game - you keep the ship and the battle... doesn't really ramp up in difficulty. :)

Thought I would report a bug... I tried to allow my crew to fix a passing engi ship after it said it was an empty beacon. Then my game crashed! :lol:
