Map changes will mark your game as *modified*.

Maybe it doesn't...

I have the Trix XUniverseHUD and it doesn't because it's only a graphical replacer; according to Trix anyway - I haven't tested it

... so maybe ?

But does this mod change the map..?
or does it only replace some graphical resources?

Mine doesn't mark it as modded as it's a texture override via the dds folder. It doesn't affect the gameplay or alter any ingame sectors or anything.

IEX literally alters the map which is pretty fundamental to the gameplay, so yes it's modded. TBH I don't think I've ever played the game un-modded.

Ok I get it
Thanks guys
I didn't realise IEX changes the map

The reason I like to play vanilla is odd I guess...
When I played X2 I used the Uplink and enjoyed tracking and recording my progress that way
But X2 only had a few hundred games on its database
whereas TC has a few thousand
and the way the player ranking database is set up I dont think it is practical to track one's progress for TC
You have to click through the pages one at a time to find your record
That was manageable in X2; but I cannot see it being possible in TC
So playing vanilla may not make any sense in TC

Thank you X2-Illuminatus :)
I never realised I could access the data that way
Definitely will play vanilla now

Hello!

I've been looking for a list of the sectors sun intensities that this mod changes, (can't seem to find one). Im about to do an export import with LU and add IEX (im not currently using it) but am worried that if I have stations in sectors with solar intensities that change this might cause some problems?

Can anyone confirm that this will be a problem or not?


Thanks, Tom

EDIT; sorry for the triple post. I remembered how to read and found the tsuns file in the top post.

Will this work with LUI? It only mentions the XRMi and IEX. I'm assuming it will but as there is a saying about mothers and problems relating to assumptions so I'd rather be sure....

Thanks again.

The change to (some) stellar intensities derives from the "TSuns.txt" file and so I would imagine that the game will use whatever it finds there when it fires up with whatever save game it has? LUVi has been about for sometime now and no one to my knowledge has posted an issue with this particularl feature...

If you have any existing Saturn Complex Hubs before the export they will not be affected by the different sector sun intensities of the galaxy you are importing them in. The SCH will get recreated and will produce goods at the same rate as the sector sun intensity allowed at the time when the SCH was originally created. However, deploying new SCHs in a galaxy with different sun intensities will of course obey the new sun intensities.

Oh, I don't know regular factories and complexes behave when the sun intensity of their sector changes across an E/I... :)
