No Man’s Science for 1.7 (Chemistry Fixes)

Does the plethora of chemical inaccuracies in No Man’s Sky bug the hell out of you? If you’ve taken basic chemistry class and even paid the least bit of attention, it probably bugs you that you can’t just lap some hydrogen and nitrogen together to get ammonia, or the fact dioxite is notated as CO2, yet it’s a different “element” and you can’t react some oxygen with carbon to get some of that sweet blue drank.

Well, do I have the mod for you? (The answer is yes, yes I do.)

If you liked my previous mod Chemically Correct, then you’ll be happy to know this is that mod but on gorilla steroids.

All elements that should be compounds or diatomic elements and such have been totally redesigned in a vanilla look so you can actually tell what the hell you’re looking at.

No longer will you have to search the wiki for how the hell to make oxygen through convoluted metal combinations!
Away are the days you have to wonder “how the hell did I turn pure phosphorus into a plant?”

Do you know the chemical equation to make pyrite?
Great! Go grab some iron and sulfur (sulphurine in-game) and make yourself some rocket fuel!

If you’d like to extract some ammonia from some fungus, just slap that plant in a refiner and add a catalyst (the reward varies on the strength)

If this mod seems unbalanced, or you have any suggestions or bugs PLEASE message me about what the issue is so I can fix it ASAP.
This mod is my baby and I intend to care for it.

Contact me preferably through Reddit (u/PetrikM) or discord (@petrik#0940).

This mod was nearly impossible, but with the help of the new modding tool AMUMSS (nexusmods.com/nomanssky/mods/957) it was possible.

I’d like to personally thank and credit AMUMSS devWberto a hell of a lot for all of the help he gave me in making this mod possible, as it took many many hours to find and delete all 167 trash recipes from the game and add about 50 new ones. Without AMUMSS this process would have been very difficult to locate every recipe and delete them correctly along with adding the new recipes, without compiling errors. By coding loops in Lua, we were able to efficiently and effectively delete all of these recipes whilst avoiding file errors. With his help, I was able to successfully make this mod reality, so I can finally use refiners without getting super pissed. If you are a modder I HIGHLY recommend this tool, as it makes editing EXML files a hell of a lot easier, especially for large scale projects such as this one.

NOTE: THIS MOD EDITS THE FILE DEFAULTREALITY.MBIN, ANY OTHER FILE DOING SO WILL CAUSE NMS TO VOMIT AND DIE
To combine this mod with another that edits DEFAULTREALITY.MBIN it must be coded with AMUMSS.

Freighter Warp Reactor / Hyperdrive Upgrade recipes (NEXT)

This Mod will give you the chance to collect Freighter Hyperdrive Upgrade recipes.

As I did not found any valid comment on how to earn Freighter Hyperdrive Upgrade recipes in NMS NEXT and because I believe that this is a must have if you can warp with your Freighter, I had decided to create a Mod which will give you the opportunity to find these technology recipes by looting crashed Freighters.

All you need to do is fixing freight containers at Freighter crash sites.

In total there are three recipes to earn (level A, B and C). The reward system will randomly give you a recipe after fixing a broken container (depending on the chance you have choosen). 

Update:
As it turns out not to be possible to change the chance of finding recipes I made two new Versions.
The first version will give you a 6.25% chance of finding one of the recipe by fixing a container. This results from the possible loot which might be in them (15 possible items/money and 1 recipe list = 16). 

The second version will give you a 100% chance of finding the recipes. For this to work I had to disable all other possible items. So you should only use it for learning these recipes and delete the mod after that!

The mod takes no influence on the order of the rewarded recipe! This will be random (e.g. you may will earn level A before C)!

You can also unlock all recipes and delete this mod as it may not work with other mods which are using the REWARDTABLE file!

Please report any Bugs or Problems you may encounter with this mod.

As the upload function did not recognize my zip file, I copied it to Google Drive. Will try to upload again on this site as well.
