Extensions Manual Anyone?

Post by 150147 » Mon, 21. Sep 15, 10:57

I have used scripts and mods in X3 for some time but XR is different!

Can anyone please point me to a manual or guide for how to use the in game extensions menu?

Thanks in anticipation of your help.

For Mod Users or for Mod Creators? The latter is a bit more extensive
if not stated otherwise everything i post is licensed under WTFPL

Ich mache keine S&M-Auftragsarbeiten, aber wenn es fragen gibt wie man etwas umsetzen kann helfe ich gerne weiter ;)

I wont do Script&Mod Request work, but if there are questions how to do something i will GLaDly help ;)

Thanks Sparky.
I seem to be getting the hang of this now.
One last question - what is the purpose/meaning of the "Steam Workload Downloads YES/NO" option in the extensions menu ?

Good question! I'm not sure as I've not used those options yet :)

I guess we could use it to retain subscriptions on Steam, to avoid losing track of them, and use the game setting to turn them off for mod bug-testing or new games without a mod (s).

Workshop support was introduced in Rebirth v1.30 so I just checked the Rebirth v2.0 Manual. There's a brief mention of this Extension menu on page 19. It looks like it is indeed for uninstalling am extention that we're still subscribed to on the Steam Workshop.

Edit: Although as you may know, if a save has used an extension at some point in the past (or a save game edit), the save still counts as modified for the purposes of bug reporting and technical support.
