ATF Outpost

This plot was originally conceived by Frostynso, and posted on the L3+ Ideas forum.

A while back I wrote the MD code for this plot, and, due to the limitations of L3+ it sat on my computer ever since.

But times change... As it now fairly evident that Egosoft won't be releasing new content for X3TC, I have been in touch with Frostynso (as the original author) and Xenon_Slayer at Egosoft, and both have given permission for me to release this plot publically.


Starting Requirements:

Aldrin Expansion Plot completed, Terran Rank 10 (Hero of Sol), the Plot will start around an hour after reaching the start requirements.


Installation:


There are two versions, one which is true to the original outline, and the 'Capital' version, which adds the ATF Capitals.

I have uploaded two options for each version:
1: ATF_Outpost_CAT_1.1.zip / ATF_Outpost_Capital_Edition_CAT_1.1.zip - extract to the main TC directory, this puts a CAT/DAT pair in the 'mods' folder in the main TC directory - it will then be selectable from the mods section on the start screen.
Or you can renumber them to the next highest pair and move to the main TC directory, and use as a false patch.

2: ATF_Outpost_1.1.zip / ATF_Outpost_Capital_Edition_1.1.zip - simply extract to the main TC directory - where everything should be put in the relevant folders in the TC directory.


Download available from:

I have moved all my downloads to NexusMods, in an effort to ensure they are still available to anybody that still wants to use them:

Dillpickle's Mission Director Collection for Terran Conflict


Modifications:
director / DPL2M07 ATF Outpost.xml
director / mdfiles.txt

cutscenes / DPL2M07 A5 C1.xml

t / conversations.xml


Fixes:

26/08/2011 - Fixed Upgrades not being available on ATF Outpost.
26/08/2011 - mdfiles.txt corrected for Balance of Power Plot.


Credits:

Frostynso - for the original idea, and a well written outline for a plot.

Xenon_Slayer at Egosoft for allowing this to come off the L3+ Ideas forum.

If you really want more information and spoilers, then click away. Very Happy

Although how much of Frostynso's idea remains the same with the new version can only be answered by dillpickle.

Of course it doesn't exist, if you don't have access (in this case L3), any and all topics from L3 that are linked into L1 will give a "Topic doesn't exist". The same would hold true for L5 and higher topics AFAIK.

So.. a little fuzzy on this;

We must load both CAT/DAT and put the scripts files in .. combining them?

or use one or the other to make it work?

Because if it means loading both then why waere they seperate in dling?

You only need one of them, the CAT/DAT contains exactly the same files as the plain zip file - just a different way of installing it.

Some people prefer using false patches - easy to remove at a later date if you decide you don't want the mod.
Some prefer the files sitting in folders in the directory - certainly makes life easier whilst developing, but if you have a lot of different ones installed, then decide to remove one, can be tricky to sort out what belongs to a particular mod in folder 'x'.

This is great dillpickle Very Happy
Always fun to see more missions released.

Now I just got to merge it with some other mission changes. Gotta go through conversations and the mdfiles texts. Hmm, maybe give roger or cycrow the idea to make a add-on to easy check for these changes and merge them...

EDIT - And it will be a while until I can test it as I am the lowest Teladi the Terran ever witnessed. And with Litcubes mission changes it will take awhile until I can reach the necessary rank Razz
END EDIT
EDIT AGAIN - Hmm, maybe I don't have to check the conversations, seems I have not installed the mission that affect those files...
END

Cheers and thanks!

If you ever need to compare files
Compareit is a good tool for that but you have only 30 days trial.

Or you could use
Winmerge which is open source software.

Thanks Argonaught. I will check out the winmerge one.

Experimenting with reducing the cat/dats in my folder and removing anything that is not needed to make the game run.

Hmm, I am still only a lowly ambassador, or some such. Will I ever reach the rank of Hero of Sol, this is so exciting Laughing

I'll probably get back to you in six months or so Dillpickle, and tell you how I feel about the mission (yeah yeah, I can cheat - I don't wanna Razz )

Cheers!

Best plot I've played out of any X game.

I saw a repeat line of text in a coversation, and the equipment at the ATF Outpost can't be purchased, but aside from those small details Thumb up
