i dont know if this is relevent but sj did you know there is a function
Code:
Empire_Has_Home_Planet_Type("Rock")

I dont know if it works if your homeworld is destroyed but you can use it to cut out your natives racial traits.

That should work in theory.
My racial traits for that come from the dark mists of ancient history and I haven't even thought about it in ages.

http://imagemodserver.mine.nu/other/MM/SE5/Mods/GrittyGalaxy171.rar

Updated for SE5 v1.71

Changes & Features:
NEW - Adjusted size chances. Small planets are now more common, and huge ones are rare and valuable. Facility space doubles with each step up in size. Small end planets have more space than they did before.
NEW - Stackable Housing! The natural population cap is low; 5M or 100M depending on breathability. Various city facilities can be built to increase the capacity of the planet.
NEW - Pollution Scheme! Dirty industry and high energy value will drive the conditions value down, while climate control, organics value and farms will improve conditions.
NEW - Deadly Deadly conditions! When conditions are really bad, some people will die off. Random weather each turn affects the casualty rate a little. If a planet is unbreathable, casualties are tripled.
NEW - Dome facilities. Makes N million people immune to bad conditions.
NEW - Planetary Conditions Report. Add the tag [cond] (or any tag starting with "cond", including "conditions" if you like) to your planet's name. On your next turn, you will get a detailed report of the current conditions, the projected future conditions, and a tally of domed housing usage.

Note: The tag system may eventually be used to operate stargates/hyperdrives and thus allow you to teleport ships across the galaxy at will

Oh, you left the housing in even after finding the 1kT = 1M bug? Or did you just set population to that size? Wink

All it really means is that you can't haul people in transports to completely max out your population. Migration and reproduction are not affected.

It will get fixed and it isn't a big impact on gameplay, so I left it.

PS:
Azacool; I got your suggestion in and it works like a charm!

Any chance of seeing a change here?

I see the logic behind it but for pure gameplay and ease of use it feels like unneeded complexity.

Oh, yeah, might wanna nag Aaron about that population bug if you want to see it fixed, SJ Wink

Glad to see I'm not the only one who is annoyed by the crew system in GGmod Razz

It helps the gameplay, but ease of use is definitely low.

I am slowly coming to accept that there will never be a combat damage system in SE5 that is as nice as CBmod's, and I probably won't even be able to achieve a system under which it is good to spread your fire out.


My current leaning is to a system with:
- No components without direct and proportional effects.
IE: engines, supply/ammo, weapons, armor, cargo. Optionally colony modules, sensors and other one-offs with special abilities. One bridge as the control node, but no lifesupport, crew quarters and junk which doesn't hurt you until the last one is gone.
- Leaky armor, not directional. Scaled to hull size, with options to pay more tonnage for better protection. Note: due to the above, every hit will damage a component, and every component lost will reduce your ship's abilities. Shields will be weaker armor that do not suffer combat damage.
- Weapons might be made zero size or otherwise tiny... price and ammo use would be the limiting factors.
- Individualized repair perhaps... repair ability would be changed to an AI tag, and applied via scripts. A ship's damage control teams would be able to fix its own systems at full rate, but repairing other ships would be difficult. The idea here being that you cannot concentrate 99 repair points in a hex all onto one ship.

My fav part of this mod is prob the crew. I love the fact that having guns "forces" you to use different crew.
About the repair thing. Are crew going to help repair the ship. Also why not add a "repair parts" tag to ships or components and using scripts decrease them by the amount of repaired points. That might be possible by using an AI tag. To restock them you might script an event were if they had full supplys that turn they are reset to max. Don't know if its possible to ask if it had full supplys that turn. I don't know when events are called in sim games and might be called when conditions are met.

The only problem would be a lack of crew manipulation ability.
The best I can think of would be a damage event that hits only-crew for negative damage.

Having crew provide a small repair bonus to only the ship they're on is a good one, but I was thinking explicit damage control centers which would themselves require crew.

BlueTemplar came up with a possibility for semi-random damage that I will have to try out. It does severely restrict the number of available slots, so crew components will have to be drastically reduced.

It will be quite a different branch of GGmod.

If you are a gun crew, you man the guns, if you are a bridge crew you are in control of the ship. Damage Control parties, and Damage Control central are responsible for fixing the ship. The DCP are crew that have no other active combat function.

if left over crew were places in damage control you could design ships with 2 decks full of crew support and only use top deck for non-crew components. this would make it easy to design ships for thous that hate the crew system. But my thinking was along the same path as gritty economy and its drone repair. I'm thinking that decreasing an ability through events is not possible as you were talking about crew.

Have you thought of using the regeneration ability for repair. As it is, it only repairs the ship it is on and then only the components that have the ability regardless of if it has 0 as its amount.. The problem would be combat repair. But could put in a very small amount and have it be accelerated during an event. You could also have the repair system your thinking of as a tack-on. haven't tested if regeneration work over a turn yet sorry.

Having the ship regen completely after every combat would be a very big downside.

That would be realistic, though, if repairs took place at a rate that was noticeable during combat... Razz

Hmm, IMHO the only repairs you can do during a combat is damage control - prevent that your ship condition doesn't deteriorate even more by itself!

That seems likely... the mod probably needs to be updated!

Yeah, you should be able to copy over those entries from the stock 1.79 MainStrings.txt and put them into the GG MainStrings.txt, and then it might work...
