I do intend to work on it soon, although some real life stuff has taken precedent.

In the meantime, just use a low-ish MaxMultiplier. Anything greater than 1 will make enemies stronger than vanilla, so you should be able to find a happy medium value. My guess is somewhere in the 3-10 range should be good, but you will have to experiment to be sure.

Keeping it at 2 for now, as to keep the number of fighters somewhat in check (50-ish), awaiting your enhancements and wishing you the best in those real life endeavors.

Update

Combat Tricks OBS

Version 3 Highlights:
  • Further reduced generation of fighters above BigShipsOnlyThreshold (default is Fight Rank 7). (Tom5Cat)
  • Lowered the default MaxMultiplier, to make things a bit easier for some players.
  • Allow generation of M7M's.


Thanks to Tom5Cat for patient and thorough reporting, I was able to greatly reduce the number of fighters generated at high fight ranks.



@Tom5Cat: This worked great at my current fight rank of 19. Try it in your game, experiment with the settings a little, and let me know how it works for you. Thanks for the help.

The very next day after my last post... BAM... life unexpectedly threw a whole heap of work in my lap, so I humble apoligize for not having been able to get back sooner. I do realise it must have seemed unrespectful, first asking about the update and then disappearing for a while, but I assure you, no disrespect was intended!

On a brighter note... witness the joy of a 44 year old turning 13 again, as he logged on and found the updated OBS had arrived in the mean time. Santa DOES exist! Wink

Atten-tion! Officer on deck! Back to business... Got me some pirates to kill, check out the brand new OBS enhancement doing so...

Will get back to you in a short time, reporting findings... O goodie Wink

No problems, Tom5Cat. It's a game... and most of us have real lives to deal with.

Ok, my report...

Since my former report I've progressed another level in combat skill, so I'm at level 28 now. I adjusted the settings to (respectively) 2/4/3/3/1, since this was doable playing with version 2, apart from the many fighters that brought. Now, I get a nice spread of different cap ships, mostly something like 3 k's, 5 j's, 3 Q's and 1 P, and about 20 fighters. Taking care of 7 waves of these makes for a very nice, challenging and entertaining combat streak.

So, after a few hours of gameplay with version 3, trying out lots of different (combat) missions, ... well, there's no beating around the bush... it's just perfect! Very Happy Absolutly great job DrB!!! Thank you!

The first mirror in the opening post works fine for me. Trying deactivating any NoScript addons in your browser, in case the download doesn't start automatically.
