Faster AI Trader Ships

This mod is now under management of modder Lo2K on Nexusmods:


Tired of those slow and unexciting AI ships on planets, hovering by like a bunch of tourists? Make ’em FAST! Enjoy fast and thrilling AI flybys when you least expect it.

You will see the maximum travel speed for AI trader ships on planets increased from a crawling 80u/s to a whopping 250u/s at cruise speed, and an atom-splitting 350u/s for boost. You won’t know what happened ’til you see ’em blazing over the horizon!


 48 cargo slots in every ship purchased.
 48 Technology slots in in every ship purchased.
 24 Technology slots in every MultiTool
Well, there’s even 48 slots in every Exocraft
First mod that gives 48 Tech slots in ships
Does not alter Vanilla Classes or prices (prices higher because of slot #
I just wanted 48-48-24 and can’t do it in a save editor.
Biostar Ten-ExhaustBearing
Made with and Thanks to:
Neat little program that does it all by itself, OR you can load a blank mbin and do it by “reading and editing” a Lua file
Just as neat, extracts all the files for you, but doesn’t make them.
nice way to compare Exml’s
Mbin decompiler, check often for updates

Some textures from:

Horizontal Wings for Exotic Ships

From the second I saw the new Exotic Ships, I thought of the Swordfish from Cowboy Bebop. 

I was sad to see that the wings folded completely under the ship instead of staying extended Horizontaly.

This minor tweak makes all Type A wings for Exotic Ships extend out Horizontally instead of collapsing vertically. 



I’m not a pro modder at this game, so if future updates break this mod, I can’t guarantee that I can fix it.

Fewer AI Starships (Work in Progress)

Simple mod which reduces the number of starships you’ll see flying about on your adventures. 

Work in progress, I’m still tinkering with the numbers to see the difference it makes. 

Affects ships you’ll see in space (freighters warping in, floating in space; and the trader ships similar to your own ship).

Affects ships you’ll see on planet (overhead flybys of AI ships) – reduced numbers and increased the distance at which they spawn, so hopefully you should see less (seems that way from my small amount of testing)

Shout out to Deckydoodles’ Busier Space, which helped me find the file to tweak for this mod! ? 

I haven’t altered the pirate spawns in this mod. 

Any mod which changes the number of spaceships will conflict with this, and either not work or override it.  (i.e. the file: EXPERIENCESPAWNTABLE.MBIN)



-About this mod:

This mod allows you to change the appearance of all the ships, including your actual ship, to any of the four available player ship classes.

It does not require a new game, and it does not modify the real ship classes that are stored in your savegame files, or the ones in the game files, it only changes the look in game.

It is Strictly an esthetic mod.

-How to use:

Once the mod is installed, load your game and you are good to go! Your ship will already have its appearance changed, including the starting ship if you are still using it!

When visiting the space stations (the best place), or trade posts; any place where ships land, all the ships will have the chosen class’s general appearance; with random ship parts of that class.

Important: Every system has a random maximum ammount of ships that can spawn in it (from 2-3 up to who knows; maybe 6 or more), so to spawn new ones; go to the next system and ships with new random parts will appear.
