This mod is a continuation of the original, created by The Dadinator, and now updated and maintained following his expression to discontinue support.

This mod may be removed if he returns to the modding community and wishes it taken down to consolidate effort.

Original Mod
Original Description (links culled to avoid misdirection):
Do you wish your defense platforms would regenerate with your starbase after battle? This mod makes all military stations (defense platforms, ion cannons, and anything modded in the same class) behave like starbases. No more micro mangement replacing destroyed defense platforms.

  • 10x Repeatable Tech Defense Platform limit(+4)/build speed(15%) // You will be able to disable this feature in the Edict. (Already researched ones dont get removed!)
  • Military stations will now go disabled if they loose all health as opposed to blowing up
  • Military stations will now start healing approximately 30 days after combat completes, just like starbases
  • Added an edict to access the options for the mod. You can now set a restart delay for the platforms, a penalty modifier that lasts for a period of time, and a percentage chance that the platform will explode on restart. You can setup none, some, or all of the options. Please give the game at least a day for the option to show up under Edicts.

Note – military stations are a class of ship that are built in the starbase defense tab. This includes defense platform, ion cannons, and should work with any modded item that is built in the same way. Please do not ask if it works with <Insert your Mod here> because I likely won’t know.

On the plus side, if you don’t lose your starbase, your defense platform investment is safe. On the negative side, if you do lose your starbase, you will likely have to fight the full might of your original starbase to regain control. It is all about balance.

Save Game Compatibility

By default, this mod only works on newly created military stations (defense platforms, etc.). For existing games, you can open the game console[] and run

event eac_aw_dpl_actions.1000

and that should enable the functionality on all existing military stations.

You can post comments here or in the Discord channel for the mods[]. I take all constructive feedback and suggestions seriously.
