[MOD][AE] Custom Repeated Fleet Delay [Game Balance]

Postby earlyraven » Fri Jul 17, 2015 2:18 pm

Greetings FTL players and mod-seekers!

This is my first FTL mod, so please go easy on me.

Summary:
This is a very simple mod that will repeatedly cause the rebel fleet to be delayed by a choosable amount once at the start and again for jumps to other sectors. Alternately, if you wish for a slightly more challenging experience, you may also speed up the rebel fleet.

At every sector's start you may:
    Speed up the rebel fleet (1-4 turns).
    Image
    Slow down the rebel fleet (1-14, 20, 50, 1,000, or 10,000 turns).
    Image

It also includes an option to give yourself lots of supplies and scrap.

History/Inspiration:
I know there's already several Disable Rebel Fleet mods posted by others, but I didn't want to completely disable it, I just wanted a small delay. I tried just changing the numbers on one of the available DIsable Rebel Fleet mods, but noticed it was only working in civilian sectors. So, I decided to make one that works in all sectors. As I was working on it, I thought it would be nice to be able to choose the delay amount, and so I did. Basically, I liked the idea of the rebel fleet pursueing me, pushing me forward, but I felt I was being a little too rushed. This mod lets me choose how much time I can spend in each sector.

I created this mod mostly for myself, but I figure I might as well share it with the FTL community.... so here it is.

Somewhat compatible with:...Mods that add new sectors.
