Tryptic's Mod Version 1.6

Given the amount of time before the Fleet Ops team releases their shiny new NX version, it seemed like it was time to start a balance mod of my own, trying to continue in the spirit of 3.2.x. Tryptic's Mod may bear my name, but it's meant to be for the whole community and I will try to listen to every bit of feedback I get.

Once again, the goal of this mod is to improve and diversify the ships that aren't used very often, allow for new strategies, and to try out some fun new ideas along the way. Development is ongoing, and will be as long as I have time and people have interest in it. I will be running ideas and suggestions in another thread, so please come and give me your thoughts as much as possible.

What I've changed

In standard Fleet Ops, most ships require more Dilithium than Tritanium. If a player is mining out of 2 Dilithium, 2 Tritanium moons they will slowly build up extra Tritanium which can be spent on upgrades and special abilities. One side effect of this is that most players can get away with 2 Dilithium 1 Tritanium, or 3 Di/2 Tri most of the time and not worry about upgrades, which are pretty weak compared to other RTS games. I've tried to make Tritanium more relevant by increasing the Tri cost of certain ships that fill a specific role in the fleet, such as dominion Bugs and Romulan Serkas, and increasing the effectiveness of support ships like the Canaveral and the C-11. Be aware that many strategies will require equal numbers of Tritanium moons and some ships are just not spammable anymore.

I've also tried to make later game ships easier to reach for all races, resource-wise. I've tried to keep the times the same so that late-game rushes aren't impossible to deal with. Certain ships and abilities are more focused on taking out single ships, so that if your opponent does rush to something big you have a chance to snipe it before he builds up.

I'm currently working on Version 2, which will be based on feedback from Version 1.6 with a few new ideas. I'm also working on a Cardassian race mod with a few other members of the community, which I will be posting about shortly. We are planning to build it together with Tryptic's Mod and make our development builds available to anyone who wants to help test them. This will take up a lot of my time, which is the other reason why Version 2 will take a while.


Version 1.6 Download link:
http://ge.tt/5o9nahS1/v/0?c

You can either download it from there, or it is on the TS server, in the Up- & Download folder. To install the mod, simply go to your Fleet Operations folder /Data/Mods and paste the folder in there. If you have a clean install you will have to create the Mods folder. Then you can start Fleet Ops and go to Options->Mod Options and select it for launch or create a shortcut.

Note that when you go to play online, if you use the Tunngle option, Tunngle will switch over to the Armada II channel instead of Fleet Operations. You can either use the LAN multiplayer option or simply navigate back to Fleet Operations in Tunngle when this happens.
