[MOD] ButterMissions v1.4 (20 May. 2014)

Post by TheRealBix » Wed, 23. Apr 14, 02:35

Hi there !



I've said it on Steam, so here we are : ButterMissions !
For the moment only combat missions have been enhanced, but who knows, maybe I could continue ? :p


So missions now have more waves, more targets, bigger targets, more types of difficulties (eg : now Escorts have Very Easy mode) and a new mission has been added : Destroy Fleet ! (yes i had no imagination for the name :cry: )

As i'm not a SuperMan of scripting, this new one is basically the same mission as Defend Station, but modified for end game challenge.
The goal is the same, protect station, and there's only one wave of ships. It also doesn't have easy or medium difficulty but... It has an "Impossible" difficulty ! Good luck with it ! :p

Ships can also spawn in squads now, in groups of 5 (except for XL capships) so it gives more challenge than scattered ones. If it works well I could also add in the future swarm-like spawns.


For this mod you must install my other mod ButterRewards. It's not absolutely required but if you don't, you'll be disappointed :wink:

I also suggest you to install Rebalance Test mod from Egosoft for more challenge

for those who want challenge

Impossible mission difficulty :

In this case, Canterans ennemies are easy.
You can add a mod for Targon Tracers on Balors, but Sucellus are nice pets. They don't fire, like Berserk Knight said in MCE 0.16

What was malfunctionning .. I don't really know, because I didn't tested. Some files of the mod should not be applied correctly so the mod wasn't really working (as a lot of files have been updated).

For exemple, I've seen that some essential parts of the file dictating how missions of assassinations work have been rewritten. So I had to modify some lines in my own file to not overwrite those changes. Otherwise it could have been some strange things :wink:

Hi Bix,

I've experienced an issue in a multiply-modded game relating to mission fighters being stuck inside the model of a station they are attacking.

It was a Argon Secret Service, defend station mission so I suspect it could be a vanilla issue rather than mod-related. Mentioning here though since I mentioned your mod in the report:

Regards,
Sparks

Does the mod increase the availability of these missions?

(if yes, may its possible to increase the trade missions too?)

every station shows up to 3 kill missions but only a few stations offer trade missions

UPDATE NEEDED! Does NOT work well with 2.5 - some missions spawn nothing.

Now that we have fleets we can use, this mod is THE "end-game" X:R has.

YARR!! Still broken! Omicron missions spawn ships with "none" in the command and cartel-boss missions spawn no ships at all.

Is this still being updated?
