Before you start modding your game, you may try using your crew to mount passing components, which alleviates the crew points scarcity.

What is mean is this:

The components that you mount on your ship are of two types - passive and active.

Active components, like weapons, temporary overcloakers, and stealth cloaks require that you have the required stats when you activate them, which means that you cannot get much use of them if you do not have the stats.

Passive components, like armor, frequency tuners, and batteries function just fine even if your stats drop below their requirements. This means that you can bring your crew on watch, complete the installation of a passive component, and then remove the crew members and replace them with light components.

If you look at the ship below, you will notice that it is mounting the highest quality components for every category, but only has the stats for its weapons and cloaking device.




This other ship does not take advantage of passive components in the way outlined above, and still made it to level 100 (disclosure: and died promptly at sector level 116) As you can see, if you choose not to use passive components without stats, your ship will be significantly weaker.

1.) Create a character that will always start in easy dungeons (-3 levels or more) and collect every component with bonus to find magic items (modded stuff or something).

2.) make runs with this character and put best components into shared inventory. The more +tweaked bonus you get equipped, the more components with +tweaked mod you will find, so this will snowball really fast

3.) periodically log into your main toon and re-equip them with better enhanced components selling previous stuff

4.) At some point you will have enough ultra-enhanced stuff to outfit every toon you make with the best stuff, as when you treasure hunter toon reaches the top level, you will be able to play anywhere to get anything within any level range for any new character.

I've noticed that at maximum (was it like +1400% chance to find enhanced?) I dropped more uncommon and rare than anything lower.

Makes any next run with any other character a breeze even at high difficulty.

Works for other Soldak games too
