(-(CP: New Ship Classes – Improved Ship Battles Balance )-) Mod

NSC = New Ship Classes, and refers to that mod, either Main & Streamlined.
ISB = Improved Ship Battles, and refers to ISB Balance for this particular patch.

This mod is a compatibility patch for New Ship Classes & More (or New Ship Classes & More: Streamlined) and Improved Space Battles Balance, allowing you to use both mods together properly.

You MUST have an appropriate combo of the required mods on the right side of this page in order for this patch to function properly. If you don’t have all of them, that’s alright, and you can ignore the warning when you subscribe IF you follow these rules:
1. You MUST have one of the NSC mods listed: either NSC Main or NSC Streamlined. You cannot use both simultaneously, but both can be subscribed if only one is active.
2. You MUST have ISB Balance whether or not you have ISB Doomsday. This patch is meant specifically for those who use ISB Balance OR ISB Balance + ISB Doomsday, but ISB Balance is absolutely required.

If you do not have the mods listed on the right side of this page in accordance with the rules laid out above, do NOT subscribe to this patch.

For those of you using just ISB Doomsday, you need the other patch, which you can find here.

This patch edits the following to ensure compatibility between New Ship Classes & More (also “Streamlined” version) and the Improved Space Battles Balance:

1. Combined country_types files.
This file combination allows the AI to use both New Ship Classes & More ship classes and Improved Space Battle classes at the same time. Without this merger, one mod would overwrite the other, and the AI would only use one mod’s ship classes. This way, the AI can use both: using NSC classes but also unlocking the ISB end-game ships later on.

2. Balances NSC & ISB ship classes via technology.
Updated 6/11/17!
Basically, this patch changes the requirements of most of the ISB ship classes (Titan, Leviathan, Erebus, & Avatar) so that the player (and AI) must get the NSC Superdreadnought technology before the final ISB ship techs can be unlocked. This is done for balancing purposes, as the ISB ships are much more powerful than (most) of the NSC ship classes, because they are meant as end-game ships. This makes sure that you get ISB ships when needed (last, towards the end of your game) but you get to enjoy all NSC ship classes before you unlock the ISB ships. You can still get all other required technologies for the ISB ships without hinderance, however, until you get the NSC Superdreadnought, all ISB “final” ship techs will not be available.

The one ISB ship class not unlocked after the NSC Superdreadnought is the ISB Ragnarok, and this is because it’s the “equivalent” to the NSC’s Flagship, and while the NSC Flagship is more powerful than every other ISB ship class, the Ragnarok is the exception, and like the NSC Flagship, you can only get one. Therefore, unlike the other ISB ship classes, the Ragnarok is unlocked after the NSC Flagship.

To be perfectly clear, this is how you can unlock the top-tier NSC ship classes and the ISB ships:

NSC Dreadnought -> NSC Superdreadnought -> All ISB ships but Ragnarok are now available -> NSC Flagship – > ISB Ragnarok.

3. Updates NSC XL Weaponry to match ISB Balance’s Overhaul.
In ISB Balance, the XL Weaponry was given a significant upgrade, thus making NSC’s 3rd level XL weaponry useless unless patched and updated. This patch does this, making sure NSC’s 3rd level weaponry is a natural progression of Balance’s changes. It also adds NSC Ship Classes to the XL weaponry’s target weights along with ISB’s.

4. Combined Guardian Event File.
With NSC 6.0, NSC overwrites the Guardian Event file to fix many issues in the file has and help support Playable Guardians, however, ISB Balance also overwrites this file to introduce it’s Guardian boosts to certain Guardians. These changes have been combined. This part shouldn’t effect NSC Streamlined drastically.

5. Fixes Strike Craft & Ship Size File conflicts between NSC & ISB.
ISB Balance’s ship class bonuses are no longer required and both Strike Craft “fixes” are combined.

Initial Upload – 7/21/17:
Separated out to better support ISB Balance. ISB Doomsday patch is different and a link above is provided for those using it and not ISB Balance with NSC.
