Fixes for RetreatUE. 8/14/20

Fixed the Enton not using stealth as posted elsewhere.

Fixed a few gravity weapon races that didn't build troop transports. Apparently the tractor beam isn't considered a weapon, and you need a weapon or the game won't auto design a transport template.

Extended the long range laser, impact blaster, and maxos blaster research lines by one and connected them to the super beam.

Not enough races using Ion weapons. Added AI Ion capability to these races (randomly chosen from races with one weapon): Abbidon, Core, Ortain, Lemeresh, Lipid, Quameno, and Teekan.

Fixed Y'lta help file.

10/24/20

These are things I changed for my personal RetreatUE. All changes are optional or you can modify to taste. Please back up. Design templates and race files are recommended at least or ceratain AI races will not build troop transports and such.

Added Cubite 1/2 super luxury (2x as many 1/2 as useful). Just for fun. Easy to remove though it has a help file associated with it.

Removed paths from Talassos and Duecalios shields to shield recharging. There's another way.

Added small shield recharger component to Cordivan shield line. Branches to long range or high density shield recharger and then to system shield recharger. Cordivan line useful again.

Changed area shield recharging to system. Longer ranges, power, and size. Meant for bases or large ships.

Added optimized gerax drive as a prerequisite for refined hyperjump theory. Gerax line useful again.

Improved Riktoh racial hyperdenial component and extended by one tech.

Moved hyperjump disruption from tech 5 to 4 and extended the line by one tech. I wanted earlier hyperjump denial since I have bacon mods gravwell off (pathing issues).

Added small energy to fuel converter to tech 2. Size is still 250 but output is 10 (later tech is 50). I wanted to play around with this earlier.

Moved all planetary governance down one tech and removed officer training facility from line. Didn't make sense.

Moved officer training to space command line and lowered tech 4 to 3.

Added open trade network as a prerequisite for the trade guild wonder.

Changed colonization module pops to 50M, 150M, 300M, cloning 600M, cyrogenic 700M, and Galactic 600M.

Structured research building has prerequisites now as do the rusan, danuta, and casidor wonders.

Added spy facility to ship scanning tech 3 from steath tech 6.

removed ship scanning prerequisite from unified scanning theory.

Moved terraforming from tech 4 to tech 3.

Added caslon/hydrogen mini reactors to tech 4 (1/3 size). Just a min/max mechanic for fun.

Moved ion cannon to tech 4 from 5 and added two prerequisites.

Added repair component to all damage control. starts at 60 seconds.

All of these fixes are optional.

Unsure if you can overwrite while in a save game so I would just wait. The changes aren't critical anyways.

Files include prievious fixes. Overwrite in the appropriate spot. This will most likely be it for changes as DW2 is around the corner.

FIXED image missing

Hi, I have a question about this mod and citizen happiness.

Overall I really like this mod's extended research tree!


I currently have XHuman capital with the following: 70% tax rate, a bunch of wonder including the following:
The Holographic Network
The Holographic Universe
Distant Worlds 2 wonder
XHumans -higher happiness +5%
Our colony has very high level of dev (+37)
Yarass Marble (+5)
Wonders provide +100% happiness bonus (+1)
Empire leader provides +3% happiness bonus (0)
Resource shortages (-1)
Current tax rate is too high (-44)
-----

Colony happiness is at -1
Tax 70% with 82% compliance

Is this normal?

I am used to playing Extended AI improvement 1.05 in which (with less wonders available) once I have the two happiness wonders set up like that I can usually run 90% tax rate with XHuman and they are still happy.

The easy answer: Tax is too high.

The lame answer: Idk.

The guess: Happiness modifiers weren't changed much if at all. I'm sure you know these but I'll list anyways: Tax rate, facility bonuses, development, raids, new conquest, shortages, and unhappy alien pop.

On a side note check your empire screen and run the numbers. You may be surprised to see you're collecting less than 70% anyways.

There are much smarter people on these forums than me and hopefully they'll give better advice.

It was never built from scratch. It's built from Mordachai's UEII. When Mordachai disappeared I took over. The best way I've played is by using the DasRetreatBacon combination.

Will it require a new game, or is it safe to 'patch' and continue?

I'm currently >30 hours in to a large game with BaconUE.

Original post updated. Non critical update. I wouldn't use it until a fresh game (because I don't know).

Got it fixed, something was off in that game, so I just purged the game folder, did a steam reinstall, placed the mod and then the patch into Customization, and loaded saved game, and all things are now as expected. Just won my game.

Amazing mod! The extended tech tree really diversifies things!

Where's the cubite image file though?

Changing themes to this version seems to throw out an error message telling me I'm missing resource image 44, so I checked the data and indeed there's no image 44 for cubite in the attachement. There is a nice help file for it showing the intended image file but the actual image file is not included ... am I missing something or is nobody else getting this error?

Hello Retreat, using your updated version of the Retreat UE mod with the base retreatUE , any time i install your update file in first post, i get an unhandled exception at the ship design screen.

This does not occur unless i install the Retreat UE fix over the original Retreat UE.

I am using Bacon mod only, but have tried it with dasbaconretreat as well, Which works great before the Retreat UE fix as soon as I get the updated retreatUE files installed its a no go :(

Any direction on this?
