Post Wed Jul 11, 2007 5:21 am

well,i did the same thing.but i want to make them use a custom ship.
for this,i found a tutorial,and i found out that i also have to edit loadouts.ini and npcships.ini.

in npcships.ini,i added this:

[NPCShipArch
nickname = ac_n_ac_elite_d22
level = d22
loadout = ac_elite_loadout01
ship_archetype = ac_elite
state_graph = FIGHTER
pilot = pilot_military_ace
npc_class = lawful, elite_fighter, d22

NOTE: ship name: ac_elite(custom falcon,i only copied the .cmp and .sur),faction name: ac_n_grp

in loadouts.ini i added this: (new engine and weapons)

[Loadout
nickname = ac_elite_loadout01
archetype = ac_elite
equip = ge_ac_engine_01
equip = shield01_mark10_hf, HpShield01
equip = infinite_power
equip = ge_s_scanner_01
equip = ge_s_tractor_01
equip = ge_s_thruster_01, HpThruster01
equip = ac_gun01_mark01, HpWeapon01
equip = ac_gun01_mark01, HpWeapon02
equip = ac_gun01_mark01, HpWeapon03
equip = ac_gun01_mark01, HpWeapon04
equip = ac_gun01_mark01, HpWeapon05
equip = ge_s_cm_01, HpCM01
cargo = ge_s_cm_01_ammo, 50
equip = LargeWhiteSpecial, HpHeadlight

so,is there anything else that needs to be edited?

Post Thu Jul 12, 2007 12:31 am

contact me at micro472999@yahoo.com.au i want to give you something that will show you that the factions work

Post Thu Jul 12, 2007 10:55 pm

I don't think you can make new ones. If you want some additional keys though, check out the Extended Key Set by Aegir here.

Post Thu Jul 19, 2007 9:02 pm

how can i make a weapon fire multiple shots? (i wanna try to make a gattling laser...just like in SL.and yes,i read the tutorial,but there is nothing about guns,only missiles)

EDIT: i found another tutorial and solved the problem

ehh... can some1 say how to add gunboat??? :p

Post Fri Jul 20, 2007 9:03 am

there must be a tutorial somewhere...

Post Fri Jul 20, 2007 9:25 pm

another question

i found some 'new' thruster effects (they aren't used in the game - bretonia,liberty,rheinland and kusari,the ones used in-game are the civilian ones).so,how can i make them work,i mean which files need to be edited? (i edited st_good and st_equip so far,is there anything else?)

Post Fri Jul 20, 2007 11:56 pm

and another question

when in turret view mode,flying a kusari gunboat,something wrong is with the camera,because the ship is very far,at...around 500m.how can i fix this?

Post Sat Jul 21, 2007 12:23 pm

here are some pictures of my mod so far...hope you like them

sry for asking noob questions...but...ehmm...i created a death zone for a planet but i still don't nlow up...any ideas?

Ogu

Post Tue Jul 24, 2007 10:27 am

Is the zone bigger than the planet? You can tell how big a planet is by the name of it's CMP file from it's [Solar entry in SolarArch.ini. If it's called planet_med_2000, then it's probably 2000m in radius. So you'd want to have a death zone of about 2250.

Post Tue Jul 24, 2007 11:52 am

In the particular universe/system folder where you'll find your planet listed.
If for instance your planet size is 4000, make sure the atmosphere is larger and also "planet_death" about the same size as the atmosphere.
example:

[Object
nickname = St04_01_Base
ids_name = 196842
pos = -589, 0, -2712
<span style="text-decoration: underline">Archetype = planet_icemntcld_4000</span>
ids_info = 65809
spin = 0, 0, 0
<span style="text-decoration: underline">atmosphere_range = 5000</span>
burn_color = 255, 222, 160
Base = St04_01_Base
reputation = fc_or_grp


[zone
nickname = Zone_St04_order_planet_death
pos = -589, 0, -2712
shape = SPHERE
<span style="text-decoration: underline">size = 5000</span>
<span style="text-decoration: underline">damage = 120000</span>


================================

Also, make sure the "damage" is set high enough to hurt a ship.
The default damage is something like only 2,000 which is not enough.
So, you simply manually edit the damage portion to a larger number.
