I have a Plug-in idea but no idea how to do it

My idea is simply to make it so that i can try and dominate planets with a lower combat rating then deadly, but I have no idea how to go about it. Can anyone help me with this?

I don't think that's possible without changing the engine. Sorry. The only thing I can think of that would create a similar effect is to make a system full of unarmed, weak ships with large crews and strength ratings, and letting the player kill 'em all off, increasing his/her rating.

The char resource allows you to set the pilot's starting combat rating.

Thanks for the help people, editing the starting combat level of a player would work well enough instead.

Wasn't there a way to change the kills needed to reach a certain level ? Like, now you need 12600 kills to be considered "deadly". i think i found something to edit that number, and all the other. Am i right or wrong, because i don't have my nova data at hand reach right now.

I don't think there's a way to edit those numbers. However, you can change the names that go with them.

What's the point? If one isn't good enough to get deadly, they aren't good enough to conquer a planet :blink:

Are you insinuating that I the great and amazingly ultra powerful LegoWaffles am not good enough to get the frightning combat rating without cheating? I must say sir (or madam) that I am shocked 😮 ! I will have you know that i conquered Earth and many other systems in my vell-os arrow with 0 escorts before I ever got registered (not that thats so amazing im guessing most everyone on these boards make me look like a hopeless noob at this game). I just don't like spending the time to get deadly/frightning combat ratings as I am a hopelessly lazy person.

Please note that the implied anger and shock in this post is all fake, the thing about me conquering Earth and being lazy though is completly true.

Also please note that i fixed the problem by making a plugin that edits the char resource instead of changing the combat level necessary to try and conquer a planet 😛 .
