Community Extended Mod Pack {EMP} v1.4 & 2.01

Post by AalaarDB » Mon, 9. Jan 06, 10:08

This is a community developed mod - it is not endorsed by Egosoft.

------
edit LV

When using the vanilla egosoft dat files only a hanful of free ware/equipment slots were available for us to use, (10 iirc) the EMP adds a plethora of extra free slots to the game which most scripts are now using if they involve purchasing items (Fight Command Software, Trading Computer ect). It would be prudent to install this mod by following the simple instructions below so that your not wondering why the script you just installed has added a readtext error to your command console.

All scripts that use the EMP should inform you of this in their first post.

---


Remember, whenever Egosoft releases a new patch, come here and see if there is an update!
Download the latest version here (works with X3 v1.4):
Extended Mod Pack 10kb
Extended Mod Pack Mirror Rar file : hosted by LV

X3 V2.01+ (Bala Gi) [Created by Cycrow]:
:arrow: SPK Download 1 - Rar Download 1
:arrow: SPK Download 2 - Rar Download 2
:arrow: SPK Download 3 - Rar Download 3

:?: SPK versions require the Plugin Manager to Install
:?: Rar versions require you to rename the file manually to fit in your game

TO INSTALL:
Default Installation:
Unzip the file to your main X3 directory. Be careful not to overwrite any files. If you are asked to overwrite any files, extract the zip to a temp folder. Then check in your Main X3 directory for files called 04.dat .. 05.dat and find the highest number. Rename the new files to the highest number + 1, and place them back into the main directory. This is the default method because it allows you to select another mod to run on your games.

Installing Egosoft Patches:
Install the patch like normal - this may overwrite the mod. Then follow the default instructions.

Alternative Installation:
It is also possible - but not recommended - to install this the 'normal' way. Rename the files to EMP.dat and .cat, then place inside the mods directory. When starting a game, select this mod package. This is not recommended because it excluded other mods from running, but can be helpful (see faq).

FAQ:
What is this?
This is a mod that adds command wares for other scripts to use.

Do I / Why do I need this?
If you have been linked here by another thread then yes you need this; but if you are just browsing then this mod will do nothing for you. You need this to enable certain scripts and or mods.

Why was this made?
There weren't enough command wares for scripters. Adding some meant using a mod. If all scripters and all users use this mod then there are no mod incompatibilities.

Will this mod interfere with my other mod(s)?
Probably not. Only the other mod's author can tell you. However, this mod acts as a 'false patch'. You can still run a second mod the 'usual' way.

Will this mess up my game?
Probably not. During Egosoft patches, if a certain file is changed then there may be problems, but it is unlikely that said file will change.

Will this alter my game?
Yes. Like all scripts and mods, this will make your game ***modified***. There's probably nothing wrong with this except for one thing you should be aware of. A game that does not have the script editor enabled will still be ***modified*** with this mod installed (unlike for most other mods). This can cause AL plugins and other scripts to run on savegames you didn't expect them to. Most users will not encounter this, but for those of you who want to keep one game modified and another not, this will modify the unmodified game.

Why aren't the command wares installed as equipment any more?
The fact that they ever were was a bug. There were some changes in patch 1.4 that makes this mod unable to use the wares as equipment.

What is this other file that isn't a *.cat or *.dat?
This is the plain text version of this mod. It is useful for other scripters, but can be deleted.

I just wanted to say a Thank You, to all you guys who release scripts and mods. I was hoping to see something like this come along, as it shows focus of more of a community involvement, than only seeing towards one person's own personal wishes for the game. Even though X3 (and so far the X series) are a single player game, I see a lot of enhancement to the game, done by the scripting/modding community. Even people that I see asking questions, and not crediting themselves as much of a scripter, I've seen release some decent to good scripts, that have been helpful.

Even though I am merely a user, I very much appreciate the many things you guys do. Even for scripts and such that I choose not to use in my own game, I still appreciate them being there and the functions that they provide. I know making some of these scripts can take a while, especially ironing out bugs, or even when you have your own vision of something rather complex that you want to undertake to add a certain functionality within your own game.

I can only speak for myself here, but in my opinion, X3 wouldn't be near as enjoyable if it wasn't for the many scripts that have already been released. So this is just me, wanting to say thank you. I look forward to seeing what future things are to come.

Used Ware numbers:

86 SS_WARE_SW_CUSTOM6_1 - DeadlyDa
94 SS_WARE_SW_CUSTOM14_1 - DeadlyDa

These were already in my TwareT, along with AalaarDB's 80 & 81 (since I use his Salvage Mod).

I am replacing my custom TwareT with this one...suggest others do the same.

Deadly, are you sure you want this?

Code: Select all

28;0;0;0;0;82;10063;0;17;1;1;0;17;-100000;0;0;SS_WARE_SW_CUSTOM2_1;
28;0;0;0;0;83;10073;0;14;1;1;0;14;-100000;0;0;SS_WARE_SW_CUSTOM3_1;
The prices for groups _1 - _16 are the same as the other wares. The prices for groups _17 and _18 can be found by multiplying the number by 28.

Er...no. I just provided the sequential slot numbers I had been using, without actually thinking it through.

Actulally, I need 86 and 94.

I updated my post above to reflect the correct slots.

Thanx for catching that one :roll:

It's more than just slots. Once released (and it is) it's hard to constantly update; so we decided not to. So you also get the price, notoriety and t id. Are you sure you want those too?

Ok, the thread has been stickied. Good luck! :) (It's a good idea)
I've also added a description to the index sticky. Let me know if there's anything else you think I need to add.

EDIT2: New Question/Troubleshooting

I unzipped the 06.dat and .cat files to the main X3 directory (and didnt overwrite anything as there was no other 06's). As said it acts as a false patch so it can work with other Mods.
I went and proceeded with creating a script using one of the new TwareT commands (#96 or 10203). Which worked fine when i hadnt a Mod running.

But for some reason the ware in question never appeared when using the DeadlyDa preview Mod. I dont have any other mods so i cant test it but im wondering is that the preview Mod specific or is it all mod's in general?

Any help is appreciated

I think that's specific to Deadly's mod, as his replaces the TWares files, with negates the EMP mod altogether since a selected mod has priority over any 'patch'

Nuke is correct. The Preview Release was put up before I started using the "community" version of TWareT.

If the released version of the mod, I use the TWareT file from the EMP.
