Is there a reason my modules are locking themselves?


#1

Hi,

I recently purchased Gratuitous Space Battles. Even before I started, I noticed that there were quite a few modules that came without needing to spend honor on them.

And now they are slowly requiring unlocking in Fleet HQ and this should not happen.

I wasn’t going to complain about it, but suddenly Frigate Tractor Beams locked themselves this morning, and that kind of cripples my fleet design. If anyone can please explain why this is happening, that would really be appreciated.

looks like the new patch 1.42 or 1.41 made this… so it isn’t at random but on purpose balance changes

Well, I for one strongly disapprove because that completely wrecked all of my designs and now how will I shoot fighters? An anti-fighter CRUISER?

…I guess I need to do some experimentation.

or you can earn some honors and unlock them…

I punched your fleet so hard that it locked the modules you used <_<

You can also edit a file in the mygames folder and give yourself loads of honor

An AF cruiser is possible, if not exactly the best idea.

Spam is the key with that.

You can edit the file My Documents\My Games\GratuitousSpaceBattles\unl.dat with notepad. A fully unlocked example is below. Just remove the line(s) for any module(s) that should still be locked. Also change the number on the last line to whatever your honor should be.

or just change the honor 2 like 10 million and unlock everything :slight_smile:


#10

the honor actually goes into the negatives if it goes too high. like if you get 300 Million honor somehow it will automatically turn into something like this:

-263826478
