  • 2 new Point Defense: Mercy and Emperor
  • 2 new Flak: Flak Array and Flak Barrier

    Each new tier improves the weapons base damage by 20%
    Some weapons already have new graphical firing effects,
    others are still being developed

All modules have their own technologies. Some are rare. Tier 6 to Tier 10 modules come after their vanilla variants and techs, so these are very much late game technologies.

[s]The AI, Fallen Empires and Crisis events will make great use of these new and extra level modules. So expect a harder game! Modules are fairly balanced. [/s] Temporarilly disabled this feature for balance and compatibility reasons with patch 1.3.0+ of the game.

** Some modules do not correctly apply their stats to the ship builder UI. This is an issue with the game and ui that I cannot fix myself.
** Auto-upgrade doesnt work with my modules, presumibly this is somewhat weirdly hardcoded
** Auto-complete will not always give the best module layout.

For other modders:
All my techs are prefixed with tech_c_techname
All my other files are prefixed with C_modulename/componant

Please dont forget to rate my mod and have fun! :)

Question regarding Crew (not about the UI display)

Cool mod, but I think I've noticed a slight bug. The Deep Space Science modules don't seem to be working properly. The shield strength and regen modifiers are applied properly, but the anomaly discovery, failure rate, and speed modifiers do not seem to be. When I look at a ship and see the Ship Modifiers window those ones don't come up, and the failure rate of anomalies didn't go down when I equipped my vessel with a tier 3 module. Not a huge issue, but it does seem to really nerf the usefulness of that module, especially since I imagine those are what it was primarily designed for.

@TauShasla they are pretty powerful yeah, but easily counters by the new tier weapons. I'll keep an eye on balance as always though :)

@Anton Donovan, thanks for letting me know! My mistake on saving the tech icon, it's supposed to be "IV" instead of "VI", I selected the wrong numbering when saving the icon. Will be fixed in the next update.

@Clone crew stuff: Clone crew can be unlocked by every ethos except individualists and spiritualists. I restricted those as it seems a bit weird that a highly individualist or spiritualist society would be ok with cloning people. The clone crews have a pre-required "clone crew" tech, once thats researched you can start researching clone 1, 2 and 3 techs to unlock the crew modules. It's possible RNG (due to the way tech weighting works) makes you wait a long time for it to show up. It happens.

jsut got tier 5 hull regen tissue, equipping this on 2 slots on 1 ship makes my ships nearly invincible, you should rebalance those ;) great mod anyways

Why is Mercy Point Defense labeled as a tier 6 module when there isn't a tier 4?
legion248 Dec 26, 2016 @ 8:30pm 
@chrisgaming70 the techs are weighted in accordance with other similar techs if i recall correctly. So for example someone with psi tech has a greater chance at the psi crew. Genetic engineering techs weight for clone crews, ect. It's still luck of the draw even so. It is possible through no fault of your own not see a given tech for a long time. There is a reason the vanilla tree is pretty small. This mod increses total techs by about 30-40%.

There may be other factors in the tech weights in this mod that i am unware of though. Only the author can say for sure.

@legion248 what tech would i need to research to get i know some crews tech is ethos related what do i have to speciflly do to get clone crew? i have built a clone army to see if that would work but no luck am doing somthing wrong?
