Hi fans!

after more than 4 months I am proud to present the next update of "Crazy"!
I know that it has been a long time, but I hope that you take into account that solving private problems was more important. Nevertheless I managed to update the mod, fix many errors and to create new features. I'll give you detailed information, first the visible features, secondly the "background" features. Comment for feedback and suggestions!

Features

  • Every single error is fixed, more information is in the "behind the scenes"-section
  • 100% compatible with the DLCs
  • The ingame-map designer has been modified: New random star type "Non Black Hole"; The planet types are sorted by alphabet; first random groups, second colonizable planets, third uncolonizable planets
  • The new "planets" are modified: Some values of the new effects are changed, the antimatter fountain got a new ability
  • Black Hole Star: Three-piece ability - Orbit range: Hyperspace chargeuprate/speed reduced; abilities and regeneration disabled - 60.000 range: Ships are attracted, they're able to escape; antimatter and shields are drained 50/s - 25.000 range: Ships are NOT able to escape; 500/s damage
  • Almost every "Crazy"-ability has an own research; some can be improved
  • Rebuilt Advent military research-tree for better overview
  • Rebalanced Kortul Devastator (Power Surge was too overpowered)
  • Rebalanced Kodiak Heavy Cruiser (same thing with Gauss Blast)
  • Flagships have now their own ability files, for example the Kortul Flaghip has a stronger Power Surge than the normal capital ship
  • Many new string files, some of them tell a small story!
  • New research-skin for "Crazy"-exclusive researches
  • Ship Graveyard is still available to people which don't own the DLC
  • Modified RandomEvents --> The effects are staying longer
  • Somehow the game is lagging a bit less. I have an idea how I did this.

Behind the scenes...

... I've done the most of the work:

  • I've sorted all files in the entity.manifest ~6 hours of work
  • I've sorted the researches in the Player.entity files ~ 4 hours of work
  • I've serached for the bugs; IWeaponAssert.cpp and i => 0 ~ 4 hours of work
  • IWeaponAssert.cpp was an Invalid value at the Occupation Starbase's weapon system
  • i => 0 was an invalid value at the GasGiant researches --> the planet type can not be "Invalid" - not my mistake ;)
  • Rebuilding the mod ~ 2 hours
  • Testing with friend - well, that is not work, but: 12 hours :D

I hope that you'll enjoy the mod!

Greetings!

hi. liking the 2.98 version a lot. well all except this item

"Swamp planet cannot colonize due to strong bombardment radiation" wtf? how does that happen even at the beginning of the game before any Nova cannons even can be activated?

Oh and thanks so much for actually putting something in those "Space shipyard" planets or whatever they are called for us to actually salvage !!!

This is a planet ability. For 360 seconds it isn't colonisable (storm season). For other 360 seconds it's normally colonisable (Calm Season). That's the reason for that ;)

Do you have any ideas when SGU mod will be released, you mentioned on the SGU page that SGU would come out a few weeks after one of the updates for Crazy, i take great pleasure and fun testing new and improved mods.

I'm working on it, but the main problems are the models: We don't have all of them.
The first upload will contain the Novus race (which are extremely modified TEC's) and modified SGI features. Maybe I'll add the Drones and the Nakai, but I can't promise that many models are ready ;)

Goodness. It was quite a shock going from 2.98 to 2.981. Losing the range increases with weapon upgrades and the overall decrease in research levels, as well as loss of logistic upgrades and research speed increases for everyone is noticeable. Yet, at the same time, having them taken away does help lower the almost DBZ level of power 2.98 had and helps make things a bit more balanced.

Great work on this. Though, if I am going to be honest, I probably will still play 2.98 a lot. >_> TEC Loyalists with 7 Starbases ftw!

Yes, but especially the Advent were extremely inbalanced, and the researches were just unrealistic. Please play 2.982 (which releases in a few hours), I've worked over 10 hours on rebalancing "Crazy".
Also, 2.982 will have the old balancing of 2.95 (which was nearly perfect)and many modifications,bugfixes and I reworked the abilities which had not my modifications even in 2.981.

You aren't hating my mod when you critize it ;). But of course you're right in some way. But the Loyalists are really running from the danger, while the Rebels are allying with the other races. And they're not running. I speculate a bit, but I think, finally the Vasari Rebels will rescue their race and the galaxy ;)
