FTL: Impossible Mode

Ok so I've been inactive a while working on various stuff, and one of those things is FTL:Impossible Mode. Basically it makes the game a lot harder by restricting available systems to oxygen, engines, shields, piloting, doors, sensors, weapons, cloaking, and drones, and a bunch of other stuff. Unfortunately I've been busy and haven't been able to put all the ships into one file... so for now you have to download a mod for each ship and the base mod. If this goes well I'll put them all together

Features:
-All beacons on the map look the same
-Each ship has its own challenge
-Starting beacon is a sun hazard
-Limited Systems
-15 starting hull
-no airlocks
-fuel, missiles, and drone parts a lot more expensive
-all ships only have 3 weapon slots and 2 drone slots

Two additional addons:
-Boss Impossibilizor: Replaces Boss Laser with another Boss Missile, and gives it a lot more health
-Item Adjustments: Alters rarity and costs of various weapons, drones, augments, and crew
-Sector Unidentifiier (comming soon): all sectors are labeled as hostile and called "sector"

Download (might break a little bit of UI for updated games... sorry my FTL won't update. Only minor problem):

Ok small update: basically now the base game and the two addons (items and boss impossibilizor) now have metadata.xml files in them, and I changed a lot of UI features to make the game have a more custom feel.

Could you try packing all the ship files into a single .ftl file? It works, but it's a hassle to download all those ships...

Yeah I know, I hate having to do it myself. I just didn't want to go through all the work if no one was going to comment on the mod. Now that you have I'll get to that

Enjoying this so far. The lack of crew healing and doors leads to some interesting tactics-- dodging missiles and bombs by sending crew out of the room, turning off O2 to put out fires, etc. ASB at the start is also a nice touch to keeps players from restart scumming. Overall FTL feels like a different game when you're expected to lose almost all runs.

The boarding ships puzzle me though: what's the intended strategy? Are we just supposed to run from fights until we get a medbay/clonebay? On the "Bad Boarding Team" my pilot has 15 health left after jumping away from the start beacon. Maybe there's some boarding strategy to kill an enemy crew without taking a single hit, but it's surely not in my toolbox.

Also what's with L3/L4 shields being only 10/20 scrap?

I honestly have no clue about the shields...
As for the boarding I'm going to add a level 1 medbay to those ships but you can't upgrade it.
I'm actually working on this mod, but I encountered some problems with the type C ships when I mashed all the ships together since I just managed to update FTL and now everything is all screwed up, plus I have like 2 other mod projects I'm working on two so I've been super busy. I'm probably just going to recreate all the ships anyways
I will update and fix this at some point, and thanks for the feedback.
If you somehow beat the game let me know, cause I can't get past sector 2 :?
