Hated the Erchius Mining Facility quest gating your space exploration? Wanting to skip that part while still progressing through the rest of the main storyline?
This mod is for you.
This mod aims to remove the hassle of doing introductory Erchius Horror quest without affecting the rest of the main storyline (so you still have to do racial scans and defeat the Ruin). These are the features:
The Erchius quest has been made as a side-quest, which means you can progress through the main story without ever touching that quest!
- Start with repaired ship right off the bat
(you can travel to other systems immediately as long as you have fuel);
- Teleport directly to Outpost after booting up your ship;
- No longer need to collect 20 Core Fragments to repair the Ancient Gate;
- Shops in the Outpost (including mechs!) are unlocked right off the bat as if you have completed the Erchius Facility quest;
- No longer need to do the Outpost scanning, just talk right to Esther;
- Truly optional Erchius Mining Facility quest! Jump straight to artifacts collection quests.
You need to play with new character.
Compatible with Frackin' Universe (FU)?
YES! Right off the bat!
This mod will not only makes the Erchius quest optional, but also make the Vinalisj introduction quest in FU (the one where you have to make crafting tables) COMPLETELY OPTIONAL!
You can tell that white alien guy to shut up and go straight to the cavern!
