I think that's on purpose. it's less a cruiser and more a cruise liner.

yes, I believe inside the sM Polish Kit viewtopic.php?t=17187 there is a module that reverts the flagship to its Vanilla form. I'm not entirely certain if this is compatible with CE but sounds like it is, especially since it can be used with CR (essentially same events as CE).

I can forgive it for all of the many other, non-gameplay problems I've found, but I don't know if I can mentally handle yet another game doing this, when the fix is so simple as removing one part of a mod.

the CE flagship is brutal, but its challenge over vanilla is what brings me back every single time. The central artilleries are connected to the rest of the ship like on hard, removing the cheese that is leaving the laser dude alive. Its Beam and Laser Artilleries are upgraded, the Beam essentially turning into a Flail from a Halberd, and the Laser doing twice as much damage. I'm not sure if you got to phase 3, but something there makes it even harder than phase 3 already is.

all these changes make for quite the challenge, but for some quite possibly too much so, with the regular flagship already being enough challenge.

Someone PLEASE help me fix what I'm doing wrong. I have SMM, latest version of Java runtime and whenever I download the files for captain's edition, instead of getting a .ftl file to extract into the mods folder I get a bunch of other files like audio, data, fonts, etc. and I don't know what to do with these. How do I actually activate the mod with SMM, or am I doing something entirely wrong?

the download file is a .ftl file, which you just place into the mods folder of SMM. it sounds like your browser or whatever is extracting the download file (.ftl files are compressed zip folders in disguise).

if you can see file extensions, select all those folders and send them to a compressed zipped folder, and rename this newly zipped folder to have a .ftl extension instead of .zip. place this into the mods folder of SMM. Alternatively, you can do the step below if you want, but it isn't necessary (can be helpful though!).

if you can't see file extensions, select all those folders and send them to a compressed zipped folder. place this newly zipped folder into the mods folder of SMM. when you boot up SMM, go to File -> Preferences, and checkmark "allow_zip". if you wanna be able to see file extensions that's a separate matter you can find how to do online.

have a look at an official tutorial of how to use SMM here, https://subsetgames.com/ftl_mods.html . they use Shiny! UI Overhaul and Graphics as their example.

----

as an ending note, make sure you have both the CE Resource Pack and the FTL: Captain's Edition mods. running the data without the resources will make everything look weird, and CE won't run without the data.

I'll look into that.


I actually found the problem behind this, there are two versions of "C_SHIP_PIRATE_CRUISER_QUEST_LORD" in "events_ships.xml.append", the one on Line 5559 should be the one that adds the event after destroying/crew-culling the Purple Tentacles Flagship, however the version on Line 5679 overwrites this ship tag, and doesn't have the aftermath quest events added on it, all you need to do is remove the duplicate.


Ah, cool - thanks!

I know this post is really old, but I did that event and it didn't give me the fed cruiser... the fed cruiser which I was *trying* to unlock...

I just went through the process of getting SMM, and some of the CE mods for FTL. I started up the game after patching the mods but after the loading screen, it crashed, and said Microsoft Visual C + + Runtime Library This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information. I tried reinstalling SMM and the all the CE mods I had with it, but the same thing would happen. My mod order is this:

Better Planets and Backgrounds v 1.3.1
CE Resource Pack v 1.301
FTL Captain's Edition v 1.301
CE BPaP Compatibility Patch v 1.0
CE Additional Music Addon v 1.301
CE Infinite Addon v 1.301b
CE Additional Music Infinite Compatibility Patch v 1.0

Maybe my slow laptop just can't handle it, but it's nonetheless frustrating :x

I have this issue too, I'll try it again when I have access to my desktop which is much more powerful.

I think I ran into a bug, my backup battery got locked somewhere in a '[] I'M TOO SMART FOR YOU' sector and it won't come back.

I guess there's a locking event somewehere but no unlock after so it sticks.

It fixed itself after a while on some event.
