is that a there is no chance that this will work with 1.5 or
my game is at 1.4 and won't be going to 1.5 so i have no idea if this will work with 1.5

had a quick try on a 1.5 super box game and it seems to work if you start a new game
and as a plus it makes the shift +(no. key 1 to 4) to assign a monitor work again
oh yeh forgot to say
thanks

Mod works only with 1.4 game version, because into the patch 1.5 are x2story.obj file (not remember, maybe also x2galedit.obj file).
Patch 1.5 replace obj file and add Uplink possibility into the game, therefore not compatible with this mod.

x2 docking mod/ added ships to x2

Post by cheetahhawk » Thu, 10. Nov 11, 18:14

i have been looking for some x2 mods it would be nice to put some of the x3 ships into x2 also, but so far i have not found any compatible. is it possible to make the script compatible with x2 version 1.5 also? steam automatically updated my version of x2 to 1.5 so far i have tried to import ships into x2 and the game freezes on loading the saved games, so i have not been able to use any of Cycrows mods for x2 so far, at least those that i have found. im still looking for, any suggestions?

The changes from 1.4 to 1.5 are minimal. In order to use a mod like this, if it doesn't work properly as a false patch, you'd have to copy it into your mods folder, and use it like a regular mod. All you'd lose is the online stats ability of 1.5.

Of course, doing that, you couldn't use other mods, without knowing how to merge mods together.

@ cheetahhawk
I can suggest to try this variant - before doing something - beckup game files, before delete/change something:
You can try to delete last CAT and DAT files from the game folder - 05. cat and 05.dat files, because 1.4 game version have latest 04.cat and 04.dat files.
After that install this mod as False patch - rename mod files to that numbers - 05. cat and 05.dat (rename to the latest numbers).
About add X3 ships into the X2:
All X3 ships have too many polygons count, therefore you will need to decrease polygons to each ship model, that will take alot of time.
X2 can handle about +/-20 K polygons for one ship model.

Actually, there's no problem running a mod for version 1.4 under X2 version 1.5 (at least, I haven't encountered any). Of course you loose the upload functionality.

Mod install as False patch.
Copy NN.CAT and NN.DAT files from the folder into the X2 game directory, then rename it to the next highest availiable number:
If into the your X2 game folder are latest 04.cat and 04.dat files, then rename NN.CAT and NN.DAT files to the 05.cat and 05.dat files.

Xlnt cheers.
Would it be possible to expand this to increase the hanger capacity fot M6s, allow say 4-6 M3s to dock.
Also to allow M6 to dock with M2. That makes sense.

5 ships (M3, M4, M5) can docked to the M6 class ships and 5 ships (M3, M4, M5, TS, TP) can docked to the M2 class ship, but then you need to edit M6, M2 ship scene files (add more external ships docking markers) and into the Tship file add more docked ships count.

That can do only if edit "x2story.obj" and "x2galedit.obj" files, I don't have that kind of knowledge, therefore I can't do that.

I hope it's not too rude dredging up a thread this old, but I'm curious if anyone knows if this mod has ever been updated to work with 1.5, or of another similar one will work with 1.5.

Thanks

This mod is not compatible with 1.5 game version - Mod is only for 1.4 game version.
It's impossible to update mod for 1.5 game version, because mod was made with OBJ PATCH15 software, who not supported 1.5 game version (software developer author was lost in space long long time ago).
