Main point of contact, latest news, helpdesk and community is on Discord

Installation:

FULLY DELETE PREVIOUS MOD VERSION FOLDER – OTHERWISE MOD WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY

In case it fails do download from Nexus - here is the link to google drive 

It is recommended to set "Desaturated" colors in your graphics option for more SW-like picture.

This mod changes the game in many ways, so other mods may not work great with it,
especially those that add ships, weapons or change their stats. Some minor QoL
mods may work fine though.

 
NOTE: vanilla plots will most probably not work, except for initial research station, that one should be fine.

0.46 features:
Major additions:
 
·        Full replacement of vanilla ships, full rewrite of “jobs” for all factions.
·        All factions are renamed to SW lore.
·        A lot of new ships, check the list below.
·        Rework of wares system, now some equipment and weapons are widely available as civilian-grade, military
grades are faction specific
·        Numerous new weapons fully replacing vanilla ones, including faction specific weapons, quad and dual
turbolasers, heavy ion cannons etc. ( approx. 90 new entries)
·        Full replacements of vanilla shields, engines etc.  civilian-grade and faction specific
·        Full combat, hull/shield and speeds rebalance to make combat and fleet battles feel much more SW-like
·        New dynamic start for people who want straight action that plays like sandbox-light with higher challange (initial version). Details are in README inside download.
·        Xenons and their weapons changed to better suit new balance.
·        Full (almost) music replacement.
·        Map was updated to better suit SW and new travel mode – highways removed, sectors are doubled in size (new
game only)
·        Economy slightly rebalanced,gap in material cost and credit cost between ships and weapons increased.
·        Numerous bug fixes and smaller improvements
-New custom game starts
 
Other additions:
·        X4 Fire and Smoke mod integrated, no need to install separately
·        X4 Expended Sectors integrated(+ no more highways)
·        Encounters were disabled
·        Long Range Sensor range increased to compensate larger sectors
·        Faction shipyards and wharfs plans updated to have more storage
·        L storage station module boosted to store more materials for ships
 
DISCLAIMER
This is the early  release of 0.46 version, to make it possible some things were left to be
completed with later iterative patches. So you can expect for some lore texts,
icons to remain vanilla and to be patched later.

 
KNOWN ISSUES that team is working on:
-         Some ships miss wreck models
-         Most turrets impossible to destroy
-         Equipment, ships and weapons icons missing
-         Equipment, ships and weapons may have placeholder description texts
 

0.46 is save compatible with 0.41 mod saves (though new game is strongly advised), BUT consider this:
·        Before upgrading:
o  Fly far from any assets into the void
o  Undock all ships from ISDs andMC80
o  Sell ISDs and MC80s, they willnot have upgraded engines and dock mechanics, so will be crippled.
o  Save and install the mod(removing old mod folder completely)
o  Delete VRO patch if used before (but not VRO itself or save would not load, it will not do anything anyway)
 
·        After upgrading keep in mind:
o  Sector sizes will not be changed comparing to new start
o  ALL vanilla military ships will vanish.
o  Vanilla economy ships will keep running but new ones will be built from SW roster
o  ISDs from empire will de-spawn and new will be built.
o  ALL of your ships will require refit at shipyards, as vanilla engines, shields etc will not be in line with SW
balance.
o Stations will not have SW weapons

0.46 is save compatible with vanilla saves (new game is recommended though), BUT consider this:
- Vanilla Military ships will de-spawn with time, factions will need to rebuild their military
- Stations will not have SW weapons
- Sector size will not change
 - If you were using VRO mod before and want to continue the save – delete compatibility
patch. If you start the new game with SW mod its recommended to remove VRO
altogether, they have slight non-critical conflicts.
