I think very heavily fortified xenon core sectors is an excellent idea, look forward to seeing the next update as and when.

Should certainly keep up a bit of shipyard business if the other factions still try to invade the xenon from time to time.

When I apply FOCW V3.3 The jump gate between Hatikvah's choice 1 and Tharka's Cascade XV stops working.

I have no other mods activated and when I disable V3.3 it starts working again.

I was wondering why it was really quiet in that area.
Tharka's Cascade XV now has a massive fleet so when they can get through it will be interesting...

Sorry please ignore my last post. I notice the gate has been moved to Morning star.
Love the Mod!

It should work fine for 2.6. I will need to eventually work on balancing things once I am ready to actually play myself. I just haven't had the desire to play since I am waiting for 3.0 plus split

I was wondering what your plans are for this mod? I'm still waiting for a mod pack or full conversion. Something along the lines of XRM. I know people are still just starting to import ships and writing simple quality of life mods...... but I miss my large, hostile universe that I could play freelancer in. Glad to see your development into X4. I'll be watching and testing. That's a million buckzoids

Hello

It's been a while since I've checked up on this mod. Just wondering is it compatible with 3.0 beta that was released recently? Also, does this mod need a full new game restart also?

Does the current version work with the 2.5 Betas?
Yes. It should always work with any new version.

I am considering lowering significantly the number of normal faction ships and increasing number of xenon ships. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
I think you should increase the number of Xenon instead of the individual strength of ships if that is possible. If Xenon can overwhelm Argon with more fighters then it will be perfect. There is always a lack of fighters whenever I see Xenon. Also they fight everyone so they always seem to get hit the worst. Xenon should be able to hold their own against all the other races combined?

It is difficult to decide on a focus for the mod exactly because of all the constant changes. The game has changed drastically, especially with 3.0. I guess for now, I will just play around with the numbers of ships and increase the maximum limits and such of ships which are built normally for now. Xenon will get many more fighters and an increase in ships that focus only on defense. I have only looked a little into all of the new faction code and I am not sure if I have the time to really delve into it.

If I did though, I would want to look into doing the following:

1) New factions which develop (like trade companies or pirate factions) and compete with the player.

2) look into more ship variants (same ships but different variants which have more or less turrets, different speeds, shields, hulls, etc.)

3) Rebalance of ships in general for specific roles. Limit the types of turrets that certain ships can use or add in new turret variants for different ships (like more powerful M turrets or more long distance firing turrets for L and XL size military ships)

These are the things I would look into anyway, but not sure if I will do it or I will change my mind or have the time.

New mini factions to compete against would be such a fresh experience, I think it would be a much needed, must-have mod!
Especially if you found a way to impact relations when the player steps on their turf with competing business.
We'd have to weight the benefit of expanding into a new area with the cost of pushing another faction out.

I think touching ship balance right now is a tricky investment of time, so much might be changed by the next patch.

Looking forward to whatever you come up with. Thank continuing to work on it

Was just thinking of the following, when I have time maybe I will look into it.

My idea to start is to turn scale plate pact into a real faction (pirate)

1) Give them a shipyard to produce both large and small/medium ships. Put these in a sector that has no owner.
2) All their ships will be built like other factions
3) I plan to remove the existing ships they use, like behemoths.
4) They will use repurposed freighters. I was thinking of changing some of the argon freighters, only the longer ones like the sonra. Remove some of their cargo capacity, give them additional hull and maybe additional shielding. Increase number of turrets and maybe give them an L size turret.
5) Scale plate will use these repurposed freighters for their L ships, and use teladi s and m size ships maybe.

Sounds killer. I could definitely see Sonras and Shuyakus being turned into boarding rams, decent speed and large crew contingent.

Gimbaled Vultures would also look cool.

Could Manorinas be re-purposed as defence drone carriers? No one would see that coming! :P

With your mod it is good to start a new game - all stations are created differently!!! :)

But different races stop using new mod ships :(

There was talk about the possibility of making different campaigns competing with the player - It would be a huge breakthrough!

Some L miners can look good as combat ships

Amazing! Also re-purposed XL non-combat ships like supply ships as dangerous battleships!
