This mod increases the number of crew points gained per level from 5 to 8. It can easily be edited to change the number of crew points you gain per level to whatever you'd like.

ModCrewPointsPerLevel overrides GameSystem
{
AttributePointsPerLevel 8 //Default 5
}

To use, simply download the attached .zip file to your assets folder.

Yeah I agree that 5 is a little bit too little per level, when even around level 45 some gear starts needing 90+ No way you'd be able to get that without horribly gimping yourself somewhere. heh.

I kinda wish command wasn't a stat and just every 5 levels or so you can upgrade your ship. Its actually my highest stat at 45 with 71 in it. Would be nice if command actually did something other than a better ship, like maybe every point is 0.1-0.2% bonus to everything or something. so i'd have like 7.1-14.2% more energy regen, shield, structure, damage etc etc. I hate putting points into command because I feel they are sort-of wasted. On a side note I found this really sweet crew member that gives 8-12 to all 4 stats.

I took a quick look, and I think what you'd want would have to be hardcoded. The best someone would be able to do is modify each hull so you get an additional upgrade for each new ship you unlock. And even then, I don't know if you'd be able to modify any stats that aren't currently listed under each hull (e.g. weight, structure, defense). In fact I just tried adding attack with no effect.

Agreed. I've suggested a Mod to keep what strength of Command Power & Ship Bonuses/Weight that entails, but let ya freely choose the Ship Model ya get to use outta the ones that are unlocked. :D Dunno if this can even be done though...

For the Topic: If ya Install this Mod for a Ship that's not lvl 1, will ya get the extra Crew Points per level up only for Level Ups ya can still get? My Ship is lvl 68 as of the time of this Post...

Edit: Oh, & if ya DL & Install any Mod for this game, do people ya Multiplayer with have to have the same Mod Installed to Multiplayer with ya?

It does not work retroactively. It will only work with your next level up.

To correct this for your current ships, you could calculate how many crew points you've missed out on (for level 68 that would come to 204), use that number (+8) in this mod, then on your next level you'll get all the crew points you would have had you been using this mod from the start. Then simply change the mod back to 8. before your next level up.

And I don't know about multiplayer at all.

Keep the mods coming man!

How about one for XP?

Maybe 10-15% more XP?

I've put this Mod to use & done the thing to get me the 3 extra points from prior level ups so it's now as if I had been getting 8 Crew Points per Level Up the whole game... I LOVE IT!!! The game actually feels balanced now, I can actually build a proper Ship, yet I don't feel OP!!! ♥

8 Crew Points per Level should become Vanilla! 5 really is too few to work with, 10+ would be OP from what i'm seeing in my Game, but 8 is just right! :D

With 8 points per Level Up, ya can have proper Command & other Stats at the same time! I'm gonna try out going up to the Medium Titan, then put the rest of my Points elsewhere, & see how it goes! ^_^

Many thanks for this Mod!!! :)

Oh really? Hmm I might have to do this on my lv 54 ship, because I am running into issues not being able to equip anything my level because I just do not have the stats.

Update: I'm about lvl 75ish now, & have max Base Tactical, the Medium Titan, some Helm & Some Engineering, & am now working on raising Structure from it's prior FIVE to Base 50, then I'm pondering on how many of the remaining Level Up Points to do in Engineering, & how many to do in Helm. :)

I LOVE my Med Titan... I'm neglecting Computers completely & my Weapon Loadout, is currently a Fighter Bay giving me Lvl 100 Advanced Drones, a Pulsar Generator, Bombs, & a Hellfire... I actually feel like a proper Ship now, vs before with 5 Crew Points per level when I felt gimp & was wondering how I was supposed to feel like a Drox Operative, instead of some schmoe trying to make ends meet in Space, Firefly Style. :D I LOVE being a Drox Operative... ♥

I did it retroactively and I still feel pretty gimy. I'm only Level 37 tho. I can't seem to get any new weapons anywhere. :(

Good sources of Loot are Dimensional Pockets that don't decide to be Teleporter Dens, blowing up Enemy Race Planets, & blowing up Boss Monsters. ;)

Hope this helps. :)

Oh, I've tweaked the loot tables to get more drops, but for some reason I'm not getting very many weapons, and they always seem to be ballistic weapons. I'm trying to get a decent beam weapon. :(

This seems to be a nuisance at the beginning of the game, till ya get to higher levels... Might have to do with Level Requirements before other Weapon Types are willing to start dropping. :(

Thanks for this MOD, it really improves the progression to get bigger ships and keeping up with modules requirements without feeling overpowered.

I find myself lacking Power Load to fill up slots with bigger / more powerfull weapons and mods but I guess that should improve with leveling. I'm less than level 20 with a light Drakk Battlecruiser atm as I can keep up with thrust quite nicely but can't equip as much high end weapons as I'd like yet but still has beam, missile, mine and interceptors (race slot).

Really enjoying the game !

I make do with just 3 Weapons on my Drakk. ;)

Yeah, there seems to be no such thing as getting away with low Engineering no matter what... but what can ya do?

How do I use this mod? Putting it in the assets folder doesn`t do anything.

You aren't going to notice a difference until you level up. If you've leveled up and still only get 5 crew points, then the issue lies with the installation.

Don't un-zip the file, just leave it as a compressed file. And make absolutely sure you've put the file in the correct folder. The path should look something like this:
C:\ ... \Drox Operative\Assets\Mod_CrewPointsPerLevel.zip
