I am using the "all plots complete" mod which uses a folder called "director" and already has a "modified.txt" document.
The other file in the t folder is not named the same as any othe file in the game's t folder,so I guess it's ok.

I just can't get the "unknown sector" to change name.
Plus I do not know how to manually change the sector name.

Any help will be welcome.
I am on TC version 3.1

The modified.txt basically just makes the game *modified* so it loads the contents of the director folder in an otherwise unmodified game.

The reason the sector name isn't changing is because in this MD file the second cue contains this condition:
Code:
<check_value value="{value@HUB Set 1 Unlocked}" exact="1"/>

Which is the value set at the end of the ore stage of the hub plot, as 'All Plots Completed' just completes the plot this value never gets set.
You can delete it (or comment it out) and the hub should rename to the chosen name as intended.

I have been running a modified game for ages and the modified.txt file is irrelevant from my experience.

Yes, but I expect your running more mods and scripts than a single MD script. Some scripts run automatically, some require you to activate the script editor, and some require you to run them to start them.

If you're using a simple (possibly single) MD script maybe just to fix a plot or something then just putting in the director folder isn't enough, it needs the modified.txt to work.

Thanks.
I will check this out tonight.
What do I use to modify the .txt file?

I use visual basic - but only because it's what I use for MD coding.

Notepad that comes with windows is capable of editing these files.

If you change the sector name in pageid 7 to:
Code:
<t id="9000001">{9,519}{9,519}{9,503}</t>

Then Betty will announce it as 'Entering System TTD' when you jump in... Razz

I include the modified.txt in all my MD scripts, its just safer than having to explain every time that you need to make your save modified, save and re-load the save again.

Is your game already modified then the txt is redundant, but does no harm either.

Yes,I finally succumbed to Modified.
Only because I did not want to do all the plots again.
But now that I have taken that route,I am looking at performance mods etc too.
I have use the "non-modifier" mods before and looked at others too.
So I have a good idea of what I am looking for.
But I always feel like Headbang when does not do what I think it should. Laughing

Thanks for advice.

The only time I have known the script editor to actually need to be activated is if a script needs to be actually manually run. I think most of the "enable script editor" stuff and inclusion of the modified.txt is probably un-necessary. The game seems to load all MD scripts and appropriately named MCSI scripts automatically regardless.

Right, I send out files just for the heck of it. Rolling Eyes
MD files not packed in cats and properly listed in the mdfiles.txt (which would constitute a modified on its own), are NOT! loaded. You need a already modified game for them to get loaded from the director folder. That's fact, no arguing, no like/dislike, that's just how it is.

Hence providing a file that will make the game immediately modified, does save the trouble of load/save/re-load.

The link to this file appears to be down - can anyone re-upload it, or point to another mod that does the same thing? I've been away from X3 scripting too long to remember how to do this myself:/
