i got sick enough of only being able to upgrade spaceship cargo to the large cargo upgrade of 25 slots, that i made my first mod! as you may know, holding a planet’s worth of flora and fauna takes up 18 slots, and spice of each color brings it up to 24, leaving only one slot for rares. i want more slots but the only existing mods i found give you more slots for free, which felt like cheating. there’s room for more cargo upgrades, so why not create them in a mod?
this mod continues the cargo upgrade sequence by adding a level 4 (Extreme) and level 5 (Uber) upgrade. their requirements continue in the line of cargo upgrades, so extreme requires large cargo and either collector 4 or merchant 5. uber requires extreme cargo and collector 5 (since there's no merchant 6, you have to get it from the collector badge). i took the existing cargo icons and replaced the numbers with the ones from the interstellar drive icons, so hopefully they look reasonable. extreme cargo base cost is 700,000 and uber is 1,000,000 which seemed like a reasonable continuation of the existing prices to me.
i tried it out with an existing space game and the extreme cargo was available for purchase right away. i bought it and got 5 more cargo slots and didn't have any problems. i don’t currently have a game with the collector 5 badge so couldn’t buy the uber cargo. if somebody could try that out for me i’d like to know if it works!
attached is a screenshot example of the spaceship abilities list and the mod itself.
