[MOD] BlackRain Rebalance Release update for X3 v1.3 12.25.2005

Post by BlackRain » Tue, 13. Dec 05, 22:14

Okay, this mod has been updated for v1.3 and does far less then what the original did, but I still made some changes that I use myself!

I have not touched Tlasers at all and since now the enemies have been increased, no need for that! What I did do was:

-- Increased speeds of ships but not dramatically, for instance:
Nova Raiders used to fly at 145, now they fly at 245-- Each ships speed has been increased accordingly, and as I said, not dramatically, but enough that I think it is much more interesting. Also for example, Carriers now range from 100-170 or so depending on which carrier, and destroyers range from I believe 90-120 or so depending.
-- Also increased turning rate of capital ships, but NOT significantly, just a little, for example from .6 to .9. You may not think it makes a difference, but it does.
-- Increased turning rates of ALL M6's moderately to make them much more useful. I don't see why they should have the turning capabilities of a Destroyer or Carrier when they are only a quarter of the size, if that much. They are also somewhat faster.
-- I have also modified Tmissiles to make the missiles somewhat faster, but not significantly.
-- I have NOT modified any of the speeds of the lasers, and I have NOT modified any of the laser recharge rates.

There will be three Versions, one normal,one with DECREASED Asteroids, and one with DECREASED asteroids and DECREASED enemy activity.

The No Asteroids aspect works correctly now and they will be lessened greatly

Great mod. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds great. I have been waiting for someone to make only the transport and capital ship cockpits available. The new spawn rates sound good, and the weapons seem to have been changed to what they are designed to do. I am using the regualr version so I will let you know what the Xenon do, and how quickly. I could be in for some interesting battles as I have other scripts that make races protect there property by sending more fleets. Bring on the super battles :twisted: I'll let you know what I think when I have tried it.

Okay, Galaxy uploaded the new version, so please feel free to download v1.1. It will take sometime for whoever is trying this out to get any feedback to me, but please feel free to let me know what you think, thanks.

Cool. Careful though, 1.3 will modify TShips.

Yeah, I am aware that 1.3 will be changing Tships, but it wont be difficult to make an update that will take that into account it will just be annoying hehe.

Im really not keen on starting again. Im just getting setup now.

you don't need to restart your game, but certain values are set at game creation or when a ship is created (often these coincide). thus your game will be wonky if you don't start a new one. Not unstable or anything like that, but you will have ships with the same name but very different stats.

If you do start a second game, pick a different objective. For instance, if you were a peaceful trader, try being an out and out pirate...

Its more the increased pirate activity im intrested in.

I dont mind the combat at the moment. I think ships move fast enough as it is.

I could send you a file which would be for just the pirates, send me a pm if thats what you want. You should at least try the ships with the increased speed, you might find it interesting and yes you can use it with your current save but all of the existing ships in the universe will be set with the old values and it will also take a little time for all of the extra ships added in the mod to spawn, any new ships you buy or new ships spawned will have the new changes though.

i feel that Capital ships are far too manouverable with this installed (i managed to turn a carrier on a dime at 150m/s) - I feel that capital ships should stay slow and as manouverable as a brick.

the M6 > M3 speed increases are fine, but M2 and M1 ships need to be slow turners as they are behemoths and can take a real beating, speed also could be lowered.

Other than that - I LOVE THIS :D

HEhe, thanks Britich for the input. Well I wanted the capital ships to be faster and more fun in combat, which is why I made them more maneuverable. I will definitely look into balancing the maneuverability of the M1 and M2. Yes, I made the M6 around the same relative speed as the M3 because as a anti fighter ship I felt it should be at least as fast as the M3. Also what version are you using Britich? Lite or Regular? If you are using the Regular version how is it running on your PC with all the extra activity? Also how are the pirates? Let me know how the economy in your game is going as well if you dont mind.

I don't really want to update the mod until I have more things to change/add at least until after the 1.3 patch.
