Installation Notes:

Not compatible with any other rebalance or ship mods.
List of files used at the bottom of this post. If a mod changes any of them it's definitely incompatible.



Version Info

v0.5.4
  • Fixed TLaser/script issue. Oddly it worked on my PC when it shouldn't have!!!
  • Updated warelist

v0.5.3
  • Repacked and moved director folder out of CAT/DAT. This needs to be placed in install directory
  • SPK for scripts now included instead of non-existent!

v0.5.2
  • Fixed non-equipping Drones and Space Suits, both should equip weapons and/or repair lasers properly now
  • Fixed Drone's Cargo Sizes
  • Changes stats on Argon/Boron M6 Light Ion weapon to prevent FPS slowdown

v0.5.1
  • Fixed Shields issue with Harriers and a few others not having any shields (thanks h2o.AvA for pointing that out)
  • Script updates for the Hakata Salvage and Repair Ship
  • Replaced SSC's with Flak effects
  • Included MARS file for MARS users Very Happy
  • Warelist file now included and updated to suit new weapons

v0.5
  • New Salvage and Repair Ship
  • New weapons for all races (except Kha'ak) 53 in total Very Happy
  • All weapons are built in current fab's
  • Fully integrated Algoran Trail Mod (for testing with pretty colours!)
  • Did I mention an entirely new weapon system!!!
  • Terran's have new textures too (almost forgot!!!)

v0.4 - INTERNAL RELEASE ONLY
  • Fixed lots of typo's in TShips
  • Fixed TS's having TL level shields and hull
  • Added text descriptions for Shields
  • Lots of other miscellaneous fixes

v0.3
  • Fixed TShields Values to prevent Shield Degeneration
  • Fixed Ships using 4GJ to 2GJ and the 32GJ to 10GJ

v0.2
  • Fixed Mammoth Spawning from rogue jobs.

v0.1
  • Alpha Test - expect the odd Bug Very Happy


Known Glitches/Bugs:
  • Most weapons share common fx until Patch 0.6
  • All weapon fabs due to be renamed correctly for Patch 0.6
  • Hiroshima currently M6 class but M7 size. Change due for 0.6
  • Some fabs will produce mobile drilling systems instead of weapons (too many fabs!!!)
  • Just found out the Ware number for Repair Laser has altered, so the Spacesuit currently doesn't have it. Will hotfix 2mo!! Gives a chance to use the new Salvage and Repair ship though Very Happy



Synopsis:
The idea behind this mod was initially to expand upon Naval Shuffle's speed increases. Three months later I had ended up rebalancing nearly all the ships and a lot of their stat's in the game. It also grew in scope a lot, so instead of just being a little speed mod, it's going through at least 3 phases. Phase 1 is to get the Base balancing done utilising current X3:TC assets as well as the best the community has to offer too. This mod has a new balance to how fast ships are and how they interact. Seeing as it's new there are a few things that need alterations, but that's why it's released now, to get feedback and make it into something truly worthy of the X3 Engine Very Happy

Features:
  • Rebalanced nearly all ships (some SRM ships resized/reallocated to better suit balance)
  • Rebalanced all weapons
  • Rebalanced all shields
  • Ship speeds increased on a different scale to normal X3TC.
  • Weapons, shields and hulls rebalanced to give longer battles with capitals, and less (read almost zero) single shot kills.
  • Gave multiple classes to M6/7 ships, though they don't show up ingame as yet
  • More to come as remembered...

To Do List:
  • Rebalanced missiles
  • New Descriptions to match changes (coming with Beta)
  • Add support for PSCO1's Cockpit mod...
  • + lots more for phase 1...




Technical info:
A list of the files contained in this mod excluding SRM and CMOD files. Any files those two mods edit are to be considered in this list for compatibility reason.

  • dds\fx_gatewhirl.dds
  • t\7777-L044.xml
  • types\TBullets.txt
  • types\TCockpits.txt
  • types\TDocksWrecks.txt
  • types\TFactoriesWrecks.pck
  • types\TLaser.txt
  • types\TShields.txt
  • types\TShips.txt
  • types\Jobs.txt
  • types\Jobwings.txt
  • CUSTOM COMMAND 756 - Used for special ship command

Hold on, so do you need SRM installed as a base to this mod? Or did you include the base files?

Everything needed is included in the base files. You don't need to download SRM or install it separately Smile

I've given Trixx permission to include the SRM in his mod. (albeit in a highly modified form!)

I do believe you need to install the CMOD4 though as the effects in the CMOD are owned by the XTM team and they don't give permission for people to use their stuff.

If that's the case then just install CMOD 4.x between the two downloads above Smile

Should have a working jobs in a couple of hours. Currently at about 90% complete, just need to go through a little more testing Very Happy

I feel bad for not showing something I made earlier now Razz But I had the same idea, and wrote a real simple (read: poorly written) haskell progy to modify entire TShips files for this very reason. If You want, I can pass over the source. It's very simple and easy to play around with, which is why it doesn't support command line parameters Embarassed. It does however compile fast enough for me to not care. If you don't feel like messing with the haskell compiler, I might rework it to use some command line strings, so you can enter a list of ops and stuff to perform. It also can be very easily modifed using the stat indexes listed at xwiki to work on other files, like bullets and missiles.

Wow, if that worked it would have saved me the 22 hours it took to rewrite about 50% of each ships stats...


Alpha v0.2 released with updated jobs so no more mammoths.

Working on a rewrite at school while waiting for classes. Bit slow, specially since it's probably a good idea to have some error handling compared to my usual methods of doing this :V Well, that, and implementing it in a way that isn't awful. Right now, I'm just extracting a ship, shoving it into an array, then returning a new array made from the old one to write, due to immutable data types. I think I have an idea on how to not only avoid editing whole lines, but also make it easier to look up specific ships+stats.

Working on 0.4. Noticed a couple of errors with Yaw/Pitch/Roll stats as well as acceleration of the bigger ships. Also will come with edited starts so all ships have the correct weapons and shields.
