Got a couple things there might be answers for here among the community.
First: I modded a new mini-race for my amusement and found a little quirk - I gave them a few new turrets, and after a battle, an attempt to reach the Stats screen made GSB crash with an error message indicating lack of turret mapping [federation]. So I added the new turret mapping to federation.txt, and everything works fine. The question is, is there something I can do that doesn’t involve editing the federation.txt file?
Second thing: I vaguely recall reading somewhere here in the Modding forum the phrase “limit on the number of mods you can have active” (not sure where I read it). Is there such a limit, and if so, what is it? I ask because I’m planning to install some of the more well-known mods around the forum, and I’d like to know if I need to pace myself.
