After Playing a few games, which i enjoyed, i realised I didn't like the amount of space aboard ships. The fighter held 16 space while the huge ships had only 80. I also noticed that even at the end of my game the small ships took only a few less weeks to build than the huge hulls. I wanted huge battleships full of stuff, and fighters that could be built quick.
I made this mod which spaces out the hull sizes, making the tiny and small hulls even smaller, and the large and huge hulls... huger. The medium hulls were tweaked a bit but stayed about the same. I also tweaked the costs and speeds and HP.
I also noticed that the ship hulls did not have to be identical. I made a standard hull, then a more sacious hull and a more robust hull (HP) for each size. I also renamed the hulls.
This mod will make most of the pre-made ships not work, but you can still make your own as normal. I may increase the mod to add back in pre-made ships.
Just one file to this mod. place it in the GalCiv2\Mods\Default\Data folder.
I play tested it through a whole game, and it functions as it should; let me know if you have a problem.
Smaller Fighters, Larger Battleships
