Hello!

Below is presented the current status and ideas of my Mod for stars 2.6jrc4 (Wammalammadingdong mod Razz).

Main initial focus was to reduce power of CA. Limit JoaT penscanning. Provide earlier penscanners. Reduce power of Fuel Mizer (and limit gating to balance).

As well as balance, I wanted to consider potential changes for reducing MM and would like your comments.


Status

1. Done
2. Done
3. Done (except 1% limit on offensive - to be investigated)
4. Done
5. Done
6. Undecided (can be done)
7. Undecided (can be done)
8. For future consideration
9. To be investigated.
A. To be considered.
B. To be investigated.
C. To be investigated.


1. Fuel mizer

Make only warp 3 free.

w3: 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

0 25 50 125 450 700 800 1080


2. CAs

Eliminate Instaform

3. OAs

Heavier and more expensive

286kt gives: QJ5 + MM + OA = 300 gateable
Also consider limiting hostile terraforming rate to 1% per year.


4. JoaT

Joat pen-scanning range now: ( Max(7,Elec) - 1 ) * 8

3 4 5 6 7
16 24 32 40 48


5. NAS

Give early penetrating planetary scanner
Give early penetrating ship scanner
makes NAS give 1.5 range boost factor instead of 2x
makes penscanners read penscan range from table instead of hard-coded
makes non-AR NAS planet scanners 1.5 range
leave AR NAS planet scanners 1.4 range
modify current scanners for changes (ideally add more scanners rather than limit to current number. need to investigate if possible.)


6. Starbases?

Change starting starbase to contain some torps?


7. AR

Change starter colonies to be lightly armed?


8. New race

[to replace SD]


9. Overgating

Make overgating more dangerous. Gating >200% of weight/distance limit impossible.

Change replace unlimited IT gates (weight and range) with limits (but larger limits).

A. Pop growth

Alter cap/exponential growth model. Could some MM be eliminated or at least reduce advantage of MM?

B. Expand number of items

Need to investigate extent of changs required to add new items (e.g. scanners to split out NAS from non-NAS scanners).

C. Encryption scheme

Minor modification should be simple. But need to investigate how much effort required for more substantial changes.
