I love the game. However I tend to mod the game to start my game and my ship with some very late game weapons. Previously I was writing directly to the game files as text edits.
I was doing this same thing for another excellent Stardock game > Galactic Civilaztions III. I discovered I can simply copy the files into a mod folder, do my edits and the mod changes work AND they stay thru various updates and patches.
Does Star Control have the same type of modding?
