... And much more!
Three new resources have been added to the game:
Biters have evolved a passive defense mechanism that drastically slows down other life-forms attempting to attack their hives. This Biter Creep is gross, but will prove useful in your quest to vanquish the territorial bugs from this world.
While the material must initially be harvested by hand, further research into the species may yield a method of growing it in an automated fashion.
Combat has been completely overhauled. Bullets are now physical objects that have speed, wind resistance, and various AoE effects. Bullets have to travel through space to their target, and can be blocked by solid objects.
Auto-aim is disabled by default, requiring the player to skillfully choose what to aim at. This does not play nice with multiplayer latency, so an option to re-enable auto-aim is included in the mod's startup settings.
Science progression has been majorly overhauled. Instead of science packs, you produce tech cards that are inserted into research computers. There are three tiers of tech card, each of which require their own laboratories.
Early-game tech cards will be phased out as the game progresses, allowing you to redirect resources to other parts of your factory.
Higher tier equipment has been added, allowing for even greater quality of life during the end-game. Almost all vehicles now have equipment grids.
Your path may lead you to discoveries that, perhaps, should remain purely science fiction.
Krastorio 2 and Space Exploration have native compatibility. Simply load both mods and it will "just work". The K2/SE compatibility code is maintained by Trex on the Space Exploration discord server. Please reach out to him for any balance issues or bugs.
Krastorio 2 has compatibility with Angel's mods. This compatibility has not been tested or maintained for several years, so there may be rough edges. Please reach out if you run into any issues.
Krastorio 2 is not compatible with Bob's mods, with the exception of Bob's adjustable inserters.
Krastorio 2 has compatibility with Industrial Revolution 2. However, it is not compatible with IR3, and never will be. Because IR2 has been deprecated, support for it will be removed in the near future.
The following mods are recommended by the Krastorio team to improve your experience:
raiguard: Programmer & general maintainer
Krastor: The namesake of the mod, created all of the graphics and designed the mod's progression and overall concepts
Linver: Programmer & SFX, implemented all of the mod's original code and sound effects.
