Description
ATTENTION! I am no longer able to maintain or update my mods going into Patch 2.0. My PC has crashed and I don't know when I will be able to replace the broken parts. Furthermore, my personal life is in the middle of an important crossroads and I'm going to be focusing on reality. This means NONE of my mods will be updated further. They will remain as they are for Patch 1.9.

DISCLAIMER: If anyone wishes to maintain/update/continue this mod, they have my permission to do so with the understanding that credit must be given in the description of your updated mod to the original author. Always give credit where credit is due.

Original description follows:

Terminology:

NSC = New Ship Classes, and refers to that mod, either Main & Streamlined.
ISB = Improved Ship Battles, and refers to ISB Balance for this particular patch.



This mod is a compatibility patch for New Ship Classes & More (or New Ship Classes & More: Streamlined) and Improved Space Battles Balance, allowing you to use both mods together properly.

You MUST have an appropriate combo of the required mods on the right side of this page in order for this patch to function properly. If you don't have all of them, that's alright, and you can ignore the warning when you subscribe IF you follow these rules:

1. You MUST have one of the NSC mods listed: either NSC Main or NSC Streamlined. You cannot use both simultaneously, but both can be subscribed if only one is active.
2. You MUST have ISB Balance whether or not you have ISB Doomsday. This patch is meant specifically for those who use ISB Balance OR ISB Balance + ISB Doomsday, but ISB Balance is absolutely required.

If you do not have the mods listed on the right side of this page in accordance with the rules laid out above, do NOT subscribe to this patch.

Guidelines for those confused by Balance/Doomsday patch split: you need only ONE of the patches, based on this:

ISB Balance Only: Use Balance Patch
ISB Doomsday Only: Use Doomsday Patch
ISB Balance & Doomsday: Use Balance Patch

For those of you using just ISB Doomsday, you need the other patch, which you can find here.



This patch edits the following to ensure compatibility between New Ship Classes & More (also "Streamlined" version) and the Improved Space Battles Balance:

1. Combined country_types files.

This file combination allows the AI to use both New Ship Classes & More ship classes and Improved Space Battle classes at the same time. Without this merger, one mod would overwrite the other, and the AI would only use one mod's ship classes. This way, the AI can use both: using NSC classes but also unlocking the ISB end-game ships later on.

2. Balances NSC & ISB ship classes via technology.

Basically, this patch changes the requirements of most of the ISB ship classes (Titan, Leviathan, Erebus, & Avatar) so that the player (and AI) must get the NSC Superdreadnought technology before the final ISB ship techs can be unlocked. This is done for balancing purposes, as the ISB ships are much more powerful than (most) of the NSC ship classes, because they are meant as end-game ships. This makes sure that you get ISB ships when needed (last, towards the end of your game) but you get to enjoy all NSC ship classes before you unlock the ISB ships. You can still get all other required technologies for the ISB ships without hinderance, however, until you get the NSC Superdreadnought, all ISB "final" ship techs will not be available.

The one ISB ship class not unlocked after the NSC Superdreadnought is the ISB Ragnarok, and this is because it's the "equivalent" to the NSC's Flagship, and while the NSC Flagship is more powerful than every other ISB ship class, the Ragnarok is the exception, and like the NSC Flagship, you can only get one. Therefore, unlike the other ISB ship classes, the Ragnarok is unlocked after the NSC Flagship.

To be perfectly clear, this is how you can unlock the top-tier NSC ship classes and the ISB ships:

NSC Dreadnought -> NSC Superdreadnought -> All ISB ships but Ragnarok are now available -> NSC Flagship - > ISB Ragnarok.

3. Updates NSC XL Weaponry to match ISB Balance's Overhaul.

In ISB Balance, the XL Weaponry was given a significant upgrade, thus making NSC's 3rd level XL weaponry useless unless patched and updated. This patch does this, making sure NSC's 3rd level weaponry is a natural progression of Balance's changes. It also adds NSC Ship Classes to the XL weaponry's target weights along with ISB's.

4. Combined Guardian Event File.

With NSC V7, NSC overwrites the Guardian Event file to fix many issues in the file has and help support Playable Guardians, however, ISB Balance also overwrites this file to introduce it's Guardian boosts to certain Guardians. These changes have been combined. This part shouldn't effect NSC Streamlined drastically.

5. Fixes Strike Craft & Ship Size File conflicts between NSC & ISB.

ISB Balance's ship class bonuses are no longer required and both Strike Craft "fixes" are combined.

This patch is broken. It causes my civs to be forced to migrate, none of my resources work, and power is bugged.

It's not being maintained anymore by the author so.... probably not.

Will you continue to update this patch if ISB and NSC have a reasonable state of play?

@Crusader Vanguard, ok

@mutaco - If you would like to take my localisation files and incorporate them into a translation or make a translation for me to use, please feel free.

However, I am slightly confused as to what you want to do. This mod has NO localisation for you to translate. Do you mean another one of my mods? Or do you want the original New Ship Classes & Improved Space Battles Balance localisation files? Either way, there is nothing here for you to translate. Some of my other ship class patch mods do though.

Either way, I don't need to give you the files myself for any mod. You can go to:

Steam/Steamapps/workshop/content/281990/[mod id] (the mod id can be found at the end of any URL link for any mod) and find the zip file for this mod, take the files out yourself and translate. You just need to reupload something for me to take if you want your translation in this mod.

Hello my friend, first of all I would like to thank you for the excellent work.
I would love to be able to translate your mod to PT-BR, you could send me the files so I can translate, then I would send it back and the next update you would release together.
Awaiting :).
