Out of curiosity, were there any plans to incorporate more trading elements into Captain's Edition?

Nope, no plans. I feel like everything that is possible in that regard has been pretty much done. More trade goods could still be added, but I think the mod is already well saturated with goods. Also modifying the trade system in general is pretty complicated and prone to error, so I try to not touch it.

First things first: Thank you for making this mod.

Finally got around to be able to run this mod. It's rather heavy on system recourses, had to resort to Lubuntu for the mod. The mod runs fine on my computer but during playtime there is one drone that messes up my screen by creating a white box and producing an earshattering static noise. I'm able to deduce from terminal output that this is most likely drone DE_DRONE_BEAM_2_ENEMY as it told me that the blueprint was incorrect. Any ideas/ways to fix this?

Well, I had an idea that, at the moment, I was thinking of just applying to the Lanius, but its actually rather apparent in all sectors.

Essentially, in peaceful encounters, you could offer to trade with another party that is present. Aside from twists that could apply to unique sectors (like Slugs ripping you off or something) it would essentially open up opportunities of selling excess materials (fuel, missiles, and drones) for scrap or other materials. It would not be limited to just one option as it currently is in such encounters already in-game and would be entirely at your discretion (meaning that you could commit piracy or acquit goods instead of trading). There could also be another option for a randomized special deal, like an augment or weapon at a (possibly) cheaper price than you would find a store.

As far as I can tell, this change would simply be many new events and choices implemented into existing ones.

I feel this would make the trader path much more feasible and I wanted to know what you think of it.

I don't know if this is a bug, or what happened exactly, but the beacon to the left on my current location (how can I post the "continue.sav"?) crashes the game whenever I try to go to it.
I don't know if I can describe it much better than that, I've moved to all beacons around it, tried approaching it from all angles, it crashes the game every time. it does the FTL jump animation sounds an all, then it zooms out, and stops before its supposed to cut to the next beacon.

The mods I have installed are
FTL Equal Opportunity Employment 1.0.ftl
Engi Scrap Advantage 1.1.ftl
Beginning Scrap Advantage 1.1.ftl
Better Planets and Backgrounds_v1.3.1.ftl
CE Resource Pack 1.27.ftl
FTL Captains Edition 1.279.ftl
CE BPaB Compatibility Patch 1.0.ftl
CE Infinite Addon 1.267.ftl
EL Texture Pack 1.27.ftl
CE Endless Loot Addon for CE Infinite 1.275.ftl
Extended Pursuit Indicator x24 with numbers v.1.0.ftl

I'm able to run it fine and all, since I've gotten it working this is the first problem I've encountered, aside from getting really lucky on runs, and then dying because 3 sectors in a row I get no shops.

CE Update 1.28d
- Fixed a few bad name tags
- Fixed a bad "req" tag in the Rock Ramship ship event
- Added a missing enemy variant for Beam Drone II
- Pulled some more spell checking from github

I'm still not sure what is causing those occasional crashes, but we are fixing things that might be causing them. Posting the continue save wont help though, as I have no way to determine the event id from that. You can probably just avoid that beacon and continue your run.

I made a separate mod that allows selling consumables some time ago, but its not compatible with CE so far.

That drone was indeed missing, thanks for reporting. Should be fixed now.

Is there a way to mod ftl in a way, that you will have 100% the rock home world in a run to get to the Crystal sector?

Technically yes, but it's a complicated way to do what this mod does already... Also this has nothing to do with CE. :roll:

Hey there,

Quick issue that may or may not be due to CE :
I had a game crash when my entire crew boarded an enemy ship and my teleporter got taken out.
The crash occurred when the message that your crew took a shuttle to get back on the ship should've popped up.
Was using the Arwing mod from Gencool at the time so the problem could've been on his end as well. Posted it on his thread as well.
Was also using version 1.28d of CE.

EDIT : Apparently this is due to the fact that the ship I was playing with was an AI ship. Still not sure, but would rule out CE.

Yeah, I don't think this is CE related. I didn't even touch that event.
