Yes, with the new longer range for heavy mounts, as well as the revised beam mitigation, it was unneeded. Between rapid fire and armor piercing mods hellbore are now very viable without it.

Adds bombs (alternate missiles type, heavier warhead though slower, usable on fighters), low/mid/high tech (torpedo tree)
Tech tree tweaks.
Ashdar heavy cruiser improved slightly.

Its mostly to update to the beta version. if you want to try out the modifications, use the prior released version, and then copy the contents of this link into the dlc folder (do not leave it in the folder it comes in).
~Technology.lua , race.lua and weapon.lua will all need be overwritten.

Hey Chasm,
Thanks for all your modding work! I was playing with your latest 010518DLC mod - a lot of fun!

Curious about enabling ships for other races. I play tinkers a lot and find they seem to be missing a mid-level escort-type craft. I tried adding tinkers to the list of races in the TECHNOLOGY.lua which enabled me to research the ships, but not build them.

Any idea what I'm missing?

Each ship class has a linked design (for example HawkCA is a heavy cruiser ship template) . In order to add a class, you would have to make a full new ship template (including graphics) and tie it in properly. And unfortunately this is far beyond what I know how to do. I experimented trying to set up ship variants but could never get those to work. Sorry

Thanks! After reading your post I started going through the ship drawer folder and reading the various LUA... totally get it. I was hoping to bootstrap an existing design and simply let another race "borrow" the template, but doesn't look that simple (to your point).
Appreciate the quick response, and your work on the mod

### Re: DLC rebalance mod

I have downloaded your modpack and am running version r21558 but nothing seems to be working. I started a new game to see if anything would change but no. The things you mentioned like flak cannon and bomb tech are not present in the tech tree, small worlds still exist. In the start menu it says all mods are detected.

What could be the problem?

Small worlds will still be there, I edited out tiny worlds. Flak cannon, and bombs are both discovered with other weapon types (torpedoes and bombs share the same research types, as do flak cannon and heavy coilgun). Are you getting a hard crash?

No hardcrash but evey turn im getting errors that look like this.

Code: Select all

Mods\Encounters\trigger_generic_events.lua:21: EventCard is missing required field: event_name -> harpy_tenderMods\Encounters\trigger_generic_events.lua:21:trigger_generic_events: Lua state\Orders\end_year.lua:162:  Lua state\Orders\end_year.lua:243:   Lua state\Orders\end_year.lua:289:end_year:    Lua state\GUI\~GalaxyMap\@NextTurn.lua:144

Or like this

Code: Select all

Please try this version, and let me know if you get a hard crash. If you do not then copy the contents of this next link into the dlc folder (do not leave it in the folder it comes in).

### Re: DLC rebalance mod

Hi, I replaced all files with the older version of the DLC pack, no hard crash. I then proceeded to replace those 3 files you mentioned last including adding in HawkCA which was all in the link you gave me.

I am still getting this error turn 1

Code: Select all

Mods\Encounters\trigger_generic_events.lua:21: EventCard is missing required field: event_name -> harpy_tenderMods\Encounters\trigger_generic_events.lua:21:trigger_generic_events: Lua state\Orders\end_year.lua:162:  Lua state\Orders\end_year.lua:243:   Lua state\Orders\end_year.lua:289:end_year:    Lua state\GUI\~GalaxyMap\@NextTurn.lua:144

And the same errors persisting subsequent turns.

Fresh game , right ? The mod will crash any saved game that isn't from it.
