I'm open to persuasion on the engine colours and trails, if you would like to bring it up in the merge mod thread. Very Happy


Got a bit confused with all these threads on the merge mod/superbox lol.

Well its errr... cool Very Happy It can be easily made to fit in with any other mods that you include (the final tships for example can be easily changed). And it will be included with my X2 callback mod anyway.

At the moment it involves changing 1 value of each ship in tships, editing particles3 and adding 1 tex/true texture and a few dds textures.

Some of which will be in the x2 mod you have depending on what version you are using.

Ah. Since I will be extracting only the X2 ships from the mod, all the vanilla ships will be unaffected.

I'm not intending to make changes to vanilla ships, as we have 2 patches still to come we know about, and there is a 50/50 chance one of them will change tships again.

If the X2 ships have them, that at least gets them into the game.

Depends if you don't mind a change to tships that egosoft will not change.

But yes the X2 ships have them.

Edit :: later version of my Mod (and the current one) also make changes to the vanilla ship scene files. The full blown mod could be added to the superbox as a separate mod if ego want.

Thats the problem. We cant guarentee Egosoft wont change the vanilla ships. Even if they just make the odd small changes, its too hard to identify them and manually make the same changes in the mod. If egosoft change their file, its easiest to cut and paste their new file into the mod one. So anything changed on vanilla ships would be lost.

Ok.

Its just my thinking that egosoft will not change the particle trail value from 1 in any of there patches, if they did it would make my mod changes to tships useless anyway.

As my edit in my above post suggest it may just be easier to add this mod as a separate one.

It doesnt matter what they change, thats the problem. If they issue a new patch, it will overwrite existing vanilla completely.

Besides, even if they are rejected from the superbox, a full merge mod will be released here anyway. It will simply mean 2 versions.


Ah ok. I thought its only for the superbox. Wink

So you have it in writing here apricot. You (apricotslice ;p ) have full permission to do with the Thanatos and Lusca as you please.
Ships are 100% my design and no one else's material was used (Other than ego textures ofc).

Thanks a lot Smile

Copyright is an issue being followed up by Cycrow


What does this mean exactly? He's trying to figure out if its possible to use copyrighted ships or not?
If that's the case, then I really think it should contain magrathean monkey's ships.

Thanks Axeface Smile

Gammel, it means he was following up with authors as to origin of models. If the models are not public domain, or do not have the permission of the author or breach copyright in any way, they cant be included in the superbox.

What are "magrathean monkey's ships" ?

I never suggested them in the first place, because I didn't think copyrighted stuff would be accepted.

XXL Factories and Orbital Weapon Platforms - v2.0 by Mutant Dwarf.

in theory it is not 2.1 compatible, but no issues reported so far. (imho is easy to check and add compatibility)

Mutant Dwarf looks disapperared, but this mod would be really really cool to add to the box. Very Happy

I'm in 2 minds about that one.

I'll have to look at the scripting and determine how much change is needed. That kind of addition will require another change as well to accomodate which also means changing a few things already done. Could be a lot of work.

Personally, I tried the XXL factories in X3, and then abandonned them. I found them h*ll to get started production. As much as I dislike having so many stations, egosofts implementation of stations I actually agree is the best way.

Edit : The scripts look like they need no work at all, CC is already merged, so merging the factories files would just impact 1 of my scripts I think. I've pm'd for permission to use the mod.

In the meantime, v2.00 is uploading now at just under 100mb zipped. I'll update the OP when its ready for downloading.
