[MOD] Simplified Endgame (Quality of Life) (0.99H1)
« on: September 30, 2017, 09:20:38 pm »
Note: this Mod will make the game easier, and may not appeal to Hardcore players.  We also realize that it deviates from the campaign design as envisioned by Dioxine.

If you are an avid PirateZ player, you may have run into times where you get to a point in the campaign that you face this huge grind just to end the game.  Massive amounts of fuel cells needed for the Conqueror, needs for many suits of endgame armor.  You may have just put your campaign on the shelf at that point and just started fresh again to try out all the new stuff that had been updated since you started. 

This mod aims to reduce the level of grind required and put the final mission within reach a bit easier.

What this mod does:
1.  The requirements for the Conqueror have been reduced by about 80%.  This should make it significantly faster to complete.



2.  A new manufacturing tech allows you to get multiple Annihilator suits quicker.



This mod has not been tested in a campaign yet, but if you do use it, please give me some feedback.

Version compatibility: 0.99H1
