@A Space Phoenix - GarGhuul is correct. The 1080p mod is highly recommended, not *required*. The only part it is truly required for is for the Flagship in the Ship Designer. Without the 1080p mod, the 5 sections of the Flagship are "smushed" together, making it rather difficult to see everything and to make personalized changes to the loadout. Other than this minor inconvience, there is no reason NSC cannot run without the 1080p mod.

@A Space Phoenix: I believe that while highly reccomended, the 1080 mod is not entirely required. It only helps in displaying the Flagship in the Design interface. I think.

ApSciLiara - We would be open to bringing additional coders onto the team that can dedicate the time needed to make new features, however we've had an issue in the past with this because we're very particular about the direction that we want the mod to go, and we've had problems with devs rage quitting and bailing out because we didn't do things the way they wanted.

I would definitely be open to talking with people who were interested in joining the team however, and anyone can message me on our Discord at any time to ask about this. It may take me some time to respond, since I'm a truck driver and can't always answer immediately. But if someone is interested in joining the NSC team to help us with future features, we'd be happy to talk with them.

is there a way to get the mod to work without the 1080p overhaul mod, because my monitor is only 768p and the overhaul mod causes all the boxes to go off screen to where I cant select anything.

Zateel - The Destroyer is actually smaller than than the Cruiser and comes first in the tech chain. It should be larger than the Frigate but smaller than both the Cruiser and Strike Cruiser. The Strike Cruiser should be larger than a Destroyer but smaller than a Cruiser, because it's meant to be a stripped down version of the Cruiser that is fast and can intercept enemy vessels.

The ships should range in size like this, from smallest to largest:

Strike Cruiser
Light Carrier

How come the more powerful versions of the Frigate and Cruiser (ie "Destroyer" and "Strike cruiser") that house more modules and are researched after their prior versions have smaller models than those that came before them?? It's a little bit immersion breaking for me but otherwise I love the mod!

@Gilgamesh - You mean the pirate fleets around you are 20K strong? That happens due to spaceport upgrades or some such, last time I checked. NSC removed the extra spaceport levels that caused this because of the pirate glitch and some other coding issues. I don't think NSC is causing your issue, but I could be mistaken. Please check any mods you have that alter spaceports in some fashion, turn those off, and see what happens.

I always get pirate with 20k(flagship) in early game... How can i resolve this problem?

@Nicky - You need to open up the mod's zip file and go to common/defines and open up the lua file you find there. Mess with those values until you find what you would like.

@Hangfish - In order to get the building chain, you first have to find the "Integrated Research Paradigm" tech in the Society branch. It's a level 2 tech so you need to research a few things to unlock it, but it's low weight/cost. After that, you need to research the Research buildings at each level (1, 2, then 3) in order to continue unlocking the building chain at the same time. So you would need after the Paradigm tech to get the level 1 Physics, Society, and Engineering research buildings to get the next building, and so on.
