Installation:
    1. Extract files to your X3TC game root folder, the files should go where they are supposed to.
    2. Start game or load an existing save.
    3. change your pilot name to activatemus Sectors get changed about 10 seconds after that.
    4. to reset/reload any changes you have made after loading it the first time, change your pilot name to resetmus and repeat step 3.
    Note: If you're already using the 1.0 version just overide the MD file.



Localisation:
    44 English
    49 Deutsch
    39 Italiano
    33 Français



Compatibility:
    This file is compatible with all X3TC 2.1 save games and all mods that did not change the sector layout



Changelog:
  • v.1.0 - Release (03-07-2009)
  • v.1.1 - added reset fuction (04-07-2009)



Credits:
    - ES for the Game and the MD
    - X2-Illuminatus for testing

that's cool... thanks Ketraar
I'm italian, to let it work need I to copy/paste the english t file and rename it to 39 and change the language id to 39?
(and obviously to translate the names into that file)

can it change other sector's names too? (with a bit of reverse engineering and modifies on my part)

Sure, no problem. Heck you can change all the names of all sectors if you feel like. Just remember that any change will only work in a saved game PRIOR to the one you loaded that file the first time.

Thinking of it I may add a reset function to it. Thinking

Does the MD have no functionality like "setup scripts", that run at every game load?

The SE also has an instruction "last load time", keeping the playtime of the last time the game was loaded.

are sector names not settable by the script engine?

how much control does the script engine have over sectors (sligtly off topic)

regardless: i like this... tis useful... no more 'which unknown sector does it mean' thoughts.

No such thing in MD. MD is event driven.

MD != SE, stop comparing it. Its not like there is a competition or something. *sigh* Shocked

No idea. Use the [Discussion] Generic X3TC S&M questions for the SE questions.
But there are other ways to change the names of sectors, loading a new t-file which overrides the names should do it too. Different roads lead often to the same destination.

I'm not comparing, only pointing out that there might be a MD instruction with a similiar effect.
Anyway, the game being loaded is a pretty important event for X3. =)

I downloaded the file a couple of times but the file name and extention that I recieved are different than the description on the file dowmload link. The description shows a .RAR file, and I recieved a .EFW which I cannot open.
This is what I recieved (MarkingUnknownSectors v1.1.1.3A1400.efw)

Just checked, works as it should.

Click on Downlod in OP which will take you to the "main" Topic at AD, there download the attached file by clicking on it.

That's what I did and still get the same result. The description of the file type in the Download Save/Open dialog box identifies the file as an UMXattatchment File, 2.70kb.

Name: MarkingUnknownSectors_1.1.1.3A1400.efw
Type : UMXAttatchmentFile, 2.70kb
From: After-Domination.net

This is very strange. I'm in the USA and Downloading to Windows XP.

Have you tried to rename the file to MarkingUnknownSectors_v1.1.rar and open it then ?
Sometimes firewalls rename suspicious files.
