First thing, bare with me, i'm italian and my english sucks...
This is my first post so i'd like to thank Blind Mind Studios for the game (it's awesome, i've been waiting for a game like that since the good old space empire 5
), and i must say they did a great job here, also helping the comunity create their mods and listening to suggestions for updates. Most developers just give some tools and say "good luck people!"
Now to the point. I've been reading the forums for a few hours now and i saw many people asking for more spaces on their hulls, some people tried to make their own mods, but i still can't see anything released yet.
My idea is very simple, the hull space will increase with your tech level, so the more you spend on research, the more subsystems you'll be able to fit in your ships/stations.
I might also modify that little mod in future to make it more realistic, feel free to suggest any change.
Standard Hull has 15.00 spaces at Ship Construction lvl 1, and will increase by 0.50 each level.
So if you want 16 spaces you need lvl 3 in Ship Construction, and so on.
The mod will increase this way
Light Hull +0.25 per level
Standard Hull +0.5 per level
Heavy Hull +0.75 per level
Station Hull +1.5 per level
Fighter Hull +0.125 per level
Stealth Hull +0.125 every 2 level
That way you can't possibly have 400 spaces even using a very large scaled ship, to have 400 spaces you'd need an heavy hull with lvl 500+ in Ship Construction, that should keep the gameplay balanced enough.
Again, sorry for my english, hope you'll enjoy =)EDIT: September 11, 2012
As reported by cbale2000 (and thanks for your help!) the mod didn't seem to work with the latest patches.
Fixed it right now, not much to do actually.
Also removed the inverted mod (heavier hulls equal to less spaces), because it didn't have as many downloads as the main one.
Last thing, i kept the old version (for those player who still didn't update or don't plan to update at all).
