Ever wish the game would go by quicker while you’re flying your lumbering Paragon up to the line of battle?  Ever wanted to push “fast forward” while your fleet mopped up the remnants of an enemy fleet?  Ever wanted to speed through a trivial Derelicts fight?  This mod is for you!

Hold the middle mouse button and the game becomes 2x faster.  You can also press the caps lock key to toggle fast mode at your leisure.  The B button toggles the slow-down effect of phase systems.  Control-capslock toggles the game to run in as-fast-as-possible mode.

Controls are fully customizable.  You can even set custom time scaling factors on separate inputs, if you like.

You deserve a cookie for this  :)

Thank you so much. There are so many battles where the enemy is ever so slowly retreating/getting mopped up and I am so far from the action that I have no way to end combat so this will make the game so much more enjoyable to me.

If only you could make similar for global speed.

With a thank you, I’d like to point out that there is no effect if player is not present on battlefield.
Can’t say if it applies to retreat, though.

Bump.  Can I get a move to the main forum + mention in the index?

Done, thanks again for another one.  :)

This is the part where, Although you created another of the GREAT utility mods, like Combat radar or Autosave, I still have to make requests/Ask questions

Does this override the game setting’s combat speed modifier? If it make the game default to +50% speed, does this make it so that nothing happens when you activate it, and drop down to the original 100% speed, or does it stack?
Can you change the bonus, to 200%?
Does this cause frame skipping when used? High speed projectiles phasing through shields?

Irregardless, a new mod that is a MUST have.

It’s multiplicative with the game’s existing combat speed multiplier.

You can change the bonuses to anything you want and mix/match key settings.  I’ll release an update with some bug fixes within a week or so, relating to some more complicated key binding schemes.

Yes, it can cause frame skipping.  I would strongly recommend increasing the FPS cap if you’re going to push this mod over the default setting of 2x speed.  There will be artifacts and glitches if you make the multiplier too high.

Where is the FPS cap? Haven’t seen that. would have been useful to know about. (Although I suspect increasing it might melt my computer)


Updated for 0.9a, plus some other stuff I had in the pipe!

Can we get a link for the 0.8.1 version pretty please? Or will the new version work there as well.

[EDIT] Nevermind, you can get to the repo by opening the download in a new tab and shortening to the downloads folder. Sorry.

When starting starsector, there is the mods list. There is a brief discription of each mod. Maybe you want to mention the default controls in there. So that people who try this mod for the first time, have it easier to find the controls.
As I am the worst possible user sometimes, I could not find theese keys for some days. 😉

forgive me, i am old and for the life of me i cannot figure out how to get one of the keys to toggle rather than holding it down…can someone please give me a simple step by step on how it works…please and thank you…
