DLC rebalance mod

To use:
Right click Stars in shadow shortcut
Open file location
Open Mods directory
Place entire DLCMod112817 folder inside with all contents
This will work without issue with other mods (so long as there is no overlap)

Full weapon rework, some systems tweaked, tech tree tweaks, race tweaks, hardpoint rebalance, ship tweaks/reworks, planet defense buff, race leader tweaks, rebalance on orbitals to make them a bit better, and to standardize their costs, native race tweaks.

Credit to Akkamaddi for useful viscids idea and baseline stats.

I'll merge my mod into this and give it a whirl. It looks like you've put a lot of work into this. :)

I am curious on your thoughts about the changes to the minor races. With the Algorians, the friendly + capricious mix makes them like a bipolar friend. They are nice, but react to stressors "poorly". The Scavengers are even more unruly, as their problem solving techniques seem to start with "Take a deep breath... burn it all down... loot the ashes... assess your feelings...".

The Lummox are a bit bland, but I rather like the character of the other two.

My personal opinion, and I know everyone can do as they like, would be to keep the Algorians and Scavengers with their current stats. If you want to make the Scavengers mobile, tweak migration rules so that "unruly" no longer disqualifies a race for transport. If you want to keep the Gaiad on Gaia, make them sessile. It would not be difficult to imagine an uplifted race on a highly terraformed world being bound to that ecosystem. Or, let the Gaiad wander and make their environment compatibility for non-lush environments rather low. (Make them unhappy in Hive worlds.)

I think the idea of mobile scavengers, who are hard workers but a powder keg, could be an interesting challenge.

Kudos on all the tweaking you've done. :D

Some tweaks to minor races, a few ship tweaks as well. Should work with prior version.

Doubles kills crew value for both standard weapons and (lethal) mod weapons (x2 and x 4 respectively). Fully compatible with games from previous mod version.

Tiny worlds will no longer spawn in galaxy creation. Works with previous game versions, but effect will only occur in a new one.

Updated for latest game version.
Space derelicts , derelict colonies, and splinter colonies changed a bit. Earthquakes no longer occur. Space harpies (and proteans) a bit more dangerous. Difficulty rebalance. Easy unchanged, Average about 20% more difficult then old ver, Hard about 10% less then old ver, brutal about 10 % more difficult then old ver. Rebalance makes the jump from average to hard less steep, and makes brutal a real exercise in survival. A fresh game will be needed for this to work properly.
