Interstellar Industries

Unread postby Ravnodaus » Mon Feb 12, 2018 1:23 am

Introduction

This is officially an open release, it has had thorough testing, but if you come across a problem post here and I'll fix it. A HUGE thanks to my partner in crime Jaycemonde who provided the creative edge to this mod. Most of the new in-game item descriptions are theirs.

So, what is this mod?

Interstellar Industries, the mod that removes spice and adds science-y trade goods in their place. But we don't just replace your 6 spices for 6 trade goods, we give you 40! That is right. 40 trade goods! I'll post the full list below. New icons too... and more than a few reused ones. A UI tweak or two.

Be aware... this mod makes early space stage far more challenging. Because there are 40 types of goods, the odds that a merchant wants that Fertilizer you got in your cargo hold is a lot lower. But that was the point, wasn't it? No longer will your space stage be just flying around until you find/colonize a purple/pink system and essentially win space-stage. Naw, with Interstellar Industries, you really gotta work at it, and there is always more to be done!

"OMG Rav, that sounds great but with 40 spices trade goods, how will we even tell them apart?" You guys ask good questions. Well, they are color coded of course. But, see... some trade goods do share a color, intentionally. Example: your Diamond world has the same color as the Diamond Battery world, but the "finished/higher quality good" worlds are a little rarer and have higher priced goods. So, you would need to start producing goods before you can know for sure whether or not that is a regular Bio-Slurry world, or if you got lucky and found a Rare Livestock one.

But it can still get just a little tricky with a few of them, I did my best! There are so many trade goods here, some are bound to be a little similar! I'm looking at you Titanium, shining so bright you look like a gem.

Instructions and Warnings!

- So if you don't have a spice mod of any kind, go right on ahead and install, you'll have no problems. This mod will replace all normal spices (red, yellow, green, blue, pink, and purple) and they will be converted into their equivalent Interstellar Industries versions.

-- For the people with moar-spice type mods, there might be conflicts. If you have a conflict and wanna use this mod, I recommend uninstalling the moar-spice mod and resetting your galaxy... or just wait for a real fix. My next project will be a work-around to make them compatible. No promises though.

--- So you have no conflicting mods, and you're ready to go? Download link below! I'd recommend using the Spore ModApi Easy Installer, of course.

InterstellarIndustries_v0_3.package


TLDR;

PS. Some stuff is super freakin rare. Don't freak out if you don't accidentally stumble over a Dark Matter world right away. I promise they are out there! Theoretically...

I want to try this out one day, but the only worry i have is that if i chose to uninstall it then my save is "corrupted." i remember you said on the server that the planets will only spawn null items, but i hope that this wont mean frequent crashes and forever broken planets..

I think you need to make a new galaxy for spice mods to work. (A galaxy I made when I had this mod installed still has the custom resources instead of spices on older solar systems. Don't ask me why, I have no idea.)

BetterSpore is an old and broken mod. I don't recommend using it.

version 1.5.1 works pretty good for me. Didn't see any problems. And it's the only balanced and modular mod that makes the game a bit harder and less casual. No alternatives out there (only messy mods that don't fit in the game in my opinion)
