Greetings everyone,
I'm part of the team working on the Unnecessary Overhaul mod, which at the first release will hopefully contain the following changes:
  • The player ships become lighter and gain cargo space.
  • The player ships become faster (reduced Something Awaits You time to trigger to balance out).
  • Reworked the Full Power option; Now a different mechanic, conserves Fuel at the cost of decreased speed.
  • AI Ships have more tools in their arsenal and will use them more often.
  • AI Ships become faster.
  • Some monsters gain additional abilities.
  • Monsters' abilities are used more often (eg. ramming, singing)
  • Ramming made faster and more aggressive
  • Monsters' ranged abilities lose some cooldown and range.
  • Monsters hide and seek better and they do so faster
  • Hull Repair changed for more Hull repaired for a longer wait interval
  • At least 2 new ships
  • At least 3 new weapons
Please state any questions, comments and suggestions you might have, your experience and feedback are needed.
Will keep this thread updated and will provide download and install instructions once a stable version is approved. You can also follow this project on github https://github.com/Foxman8472/Zz_UnnecessaryOverhaul/

Enjoy and please provide feedback. It's needed for bug fixing and to provide a better 1.0 release.

When you're done, and you're ready to provide download and install instructions, please include directions for installing it on a Mac as well as on a PC. It would be greatly appreciated by us Mac users.

Actually, can you help me with that, please? I don't know any Mac users that could help me write install specs for Mac.
Here's a link to 0.3.7 Alpha release:
http://www.filedropper.com/zzunnecessaryoverhaul

Somewhere in your computer, there is a Failbetter Games folder. In that folder, there is a Sunless Sea folder that contains an empty addon folder.
On PC, the path is usually:
C:\Users\*USERNAME*\AppData\LocalLow\Failbetter Games\Sunless Sea\addon

Unpack the archive there. Then you simply run the game.

Yeah I'll be able to help you with that once I get a new Mac, because I may or may not have spilled fizzy drink on my old one.

I think the install location (both on PC and Mac) is different if you have it on Steam as well?

No, the save is done on a different location from the main folder. That's where the addon folder is.

On my Mac, the files for the non-Steam version at the very least are under ~/library/Applicaton Support/unity.failbetter.sunlesssea/ though the name for the last folder is not exact since I don't have my computer at the moment.
