How To Change Fog And Dust Particles Of Your Current Galaxy

1. Generate a galaxy with the level of fog you want, and whether or not you want space dust particles. For this example, let's assume you picked the average level, and named your galaxy 'fog_preset2'.
2. Go into the 'mayhem_galaxies\fog_preset2\addon\types' folder.
3. Copy the file 'TBackgrounds.txt' and paste it to 'mayhem_galaxies\YOUR_GALAXY\addon\types', assuming 'YOUR_GALAXY' is the name of the galaxy you want your new fog in.
4. Launch YOUR_GALAXY from the Galaxy Generator. Note that the Fog slider and the Use space particles checkbox will not be updated.

You can change fog preset values by editing the file 'mayhem_data\fog_presets.json':
  • minFog and maxFog are a percentage of the final fog amount defined randomly between these two values for each sector.
  • fadeOutStopFactor is a factor that defines the visual distance at which objects disappear when your View Distance setting is set to Medium (in-game setting). The formula is: (fadeOutStopFactor - fogAmount) * 1000, in meters.
  • fadeOutMinusFactor is the difference between the distance at which objects start to disappear and the distance at which objects are completely faded out. The higher this value is, the shorter the distance difference is (it's a division).
  • particles is a percentage of space dust particles. 80 by default.

3.8 Missiles Overhaul
The AI has been improved to fire missiles in the most efficient way possible, and also to keep good game performance and balanced gameplay. Therefore, the AI does not use missiles when out of sector. The AI will also fire a missile only if the target has low shields, or none at all. Finally, the AI uses M8, but it doesn't use M7M. Each M8 has all CCDS built-in and can protect nearby allies.

If I read this correctly, missiles are never fired out of sector, so for ships which rely heavily or exclusively on missiles (M8's), they are essentially totally useless under all conditions if used out of sector.
What am I missing here?
Take your stinking paws off me you dam dirty ape! :S

Mayhem 3.9 released

You need to download the Graphics Pack v2, after the update. Take a look at the new file structure, as engine trails have been reactivated by default. You should remove 13.cat/.dat, which is the old no laser no engine trails (engine trails have been reactivated by default).
For previous savegames, please launch the game through the Galaxy Generator once to update fog and background files.
Thank you for xour great and continuous work !!

Was just watching an Argon M2 flying around my sector and he spontaneously combusted... Does the AI get rid of ships it doesn't need or something or was that a bug?

You should remove 13.cat/.dat,
the one in addon folder or in main folder?

When you put a commodity on the logistics > traders > blacklist, will the players outposts continue to trade that resource among themselves?

Hey big Panda,
nice, that you're still here and support us with your mod!
I just got back to x3 after some years and just wanted to say, that i hope that your mayhem 3 will bring me as much fun as your mayhem 1 did (yes, my break was a little long :D). Keep up with that good work! (Some positive reinforcement should'nt be bad :P )

Hey everyone,
unexpectedly, i got some questions:
  • 1. What are abnormal signals? Is it good or bad to have them?
    2. What was changed with research? Do i really need to scan every ship x times to be able to build them or can e.g. a research station do that job for me?
    3.Credits seem to be a rare ressource now. How is it possible to still gain them, when you are at war with everyone (=endgame)?
    4. Are there any tips for beginners with mayhem, e.g. what to take care of before starting your own empire, what you should looking for with sectors you want to start in, how many ships you should have,... ?

Hi, I'm still on 3.8, do I need to do 3.10 + Graphics v2 ?
Or only 3.10 ?
