Mods 'R' Us

I put up another Mod for Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space.

This one is the 2.1 version of my Drives 'R' Us Mod.

Changes from the 1.11 version (which I'd made almost 2 years ago) include:
  • Recalibrated prices on everything. I did extensive testing and number-crunching to arrive at more-accurate values for almost every item in the game.
  • Technology items are now split into Civilian Tech and Military Tech. The Military mission focuses on military tech, and the Science mission gives a little bit of emphasis on civilian tech.
  • Changed the starting equipment for all Terran ships, and what spawns on Hope.
  • Over 30 new items!
    • 9 New Weapons
    • 3 New Drives
    • 2 New Sensors
    • 1 New ECM
    • 4 New Combat Computers
    • 5 New Repair Systems
    • 5 New Thrusters
    • 2 New Shields
  • Miscellaneous tweaks to various systems and weapons.
  • Added a couple new ship variants. Should mix up the fights a bit.
  • Bloodfang is very different from the main game, and better balanced than he was in version 2.0.
  • Removed all the Superweapon KEYS. The sheer quantity of items in this mod makes it unlikely you'll get a large stockpile of so-called superweapons.
  • Tweaked the Civil War event. It's now a little more unpredictable (there's two versions), and no longer claims to be a supernova after the fact. I'm much happier with it now.
If you're thinking I jumped from 1.11 to 2.1, I didn't. There was a 2.0 version that I forget to link to from here, but it was only up for 3 days before I found some minor issues that I fixed in todays version.

Have fun!

I also updated Tech Transparency 2.1 to v2.1.1.
It's just a small fix concerning the text on the repair units.
