Now with all ships, CE and CE Infinite support, minor bugfixes
I can now easily create custom versions of this mod. If you want me to create a a version compatible with your mod, feel free to msg me.
Inspired by /u/Ymir_from_Saturn in this reddit thread, I've created a mod that lets you customize your ships equipment and crew on the first beacon. It's a very early beta build, so expect some bugs and crashes.
As of now, you can start with a stripped down version of any ship with no weapons or augs, only one crew and 350 scraps. On the first beacon, you can buy every vanilla/AE Weapon,Drone,Augment or Crew you want for the a balanced price.
You jump to a new starting beacon after each purchase, but no matter how many purchases you make, you still start in sector 1. This is done as a workaround for a problem with infinite dialogue loops.
For technical reasons, you have no sector choice on the first jump.
Download Vanilla AE:
BYOS unlimited scrap v1.0
BYOS CE v1.0
BYOS CE unlimited scrap v1.0
Captains Edition with Infinite Addon:
BYOS CE Infinite Addon v1.0
BYOS CE Infinite Addon unlimited scrap v1.0
Install it with a mod manager like Slipstream Mod Manager v1.4
Customizing Systems is not in the mod yet, because I haven't found a way to add them via sector events. If any modder here has an idea on how to do that, please let me know.
If you want to help me with this mod, you can: Help me balance the equipment costs. You can download my list of all items with their costs here. Modify the costs the way you see fit and send the file back to me.
