I mean the cases where the NPC cannot be hired, or they dont like you enough to provide guidance.
In these cases the UI just closes, but i was thinking someone might miss some feedback from the game. The disabled speech iirc is something like 'No!', or 'Im not an information store' and things like that.
I keep them disabled in case i get no feedback.
Playing vanilla at the moment so maybe it is a bit outside of scope but when looking for SmallTalking NPCs to hire as Trade Agents, if a hirable NPC speaks first, I use the reply of "No!" to tell me that the NPC can be a Trade Agent.

It's not a critical issue since if playing modded, there are mods to make small-talking and Trade Agent acquisition easier. Just mentioning for info really.

Thanks for the info!
So you mean the No! answer could be useful?

As far as i saw in each context the only possible outcome where the UI closes automatically are these refuse cases. So the UI autoclosing even without speech can only mean one thing in each situation - does this hold?
So for ex - if i did not miss anything - when the manager finishes the conversation, it means that he/she is not for hire without doubt.

Even if it is so, im not sure if the player might need a stronger message from the game, not just closing the window/selection menu.

I use some mods, and rarely ever smalltalk so there might be cases i missed.

Yes, but only in the specific case of hunting for Trade Agents AFAIK.

I'm not sure. In the general case of a randomly-spawned NPC saying "No!" to the hiring question, I think that yes, the UI will always close. However, IIRC, some specific mission-related NPCs can also have a convo UI that flashes open briefly and closed. Or maybe I am remembering wrong and it never opens (sorry, I can't be more specific from memory).

I think that could be a bit ambiguous so I would say:

- If a SmallTalking Manager/DO/etc will open the crew hiring menu when asked, they will not offer to be a Trade Agent.
- If a SmallTalking Manager/DO/etc says "No!" when asked about being hired as crew, they can be a Trade Agent.

It could be stronger, yeah. The only thing about the vanilla scenario is that I think I am not using the UI as intended. I don't think Egosoft meant "No!" to mean that they could be Trade Agents, but that is just a guess.

More or less what i was thinking, and i think we have a different pov regarding the game so that just makes it stronger.. probably a candidate for next update.

I think the No! answer means that they are not for hire, it is just a coincidence that in that case they can be trade agents.

Thanks for your thoughts!

And i figured a modding question too - is there a way to influence load order?
Probably mine should be run before anything that adds content, not sure if there is a way to achieve this?

not something I am familiar with, but Rebirth v3.53 has the following change log item:

Aww that means the 'big' mods should be dependent on mine, not something that could ever happen.
Thanks anyway.

Enabled that line, plus the one where rep is too low to start the conversation.

Not absolutely sure, but I remember when was trying to figure this out several months back: if no dependencies specified, mod load order was by alphabetical folder name, loose files first. That was before 3.0, though, so things might have changed since then.

Also there are optional dependencies since 4.0 - this dependency is not required but if present it will be loaded before this mod.
defining top-priority mods is AFAIK not possible and also not necessary imo. This Mod is unlikely to be broken by other mods anyway (except they make major changes to the conversations) and if it were the game itself wouldn't break
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 guys!

I saw now there is a silent flag to supress no match errors too - probably thats the way to go, as my mod wont influence anything much.

It seems under 3.61 the HUD Detail Monitor option has to be turned On, otherwise the skill and build related windows will not open without the associated voiceovers being played back.

Baridor, you could try to elaborate on this to get closer to any kind of solution.

But before that make sure that 'Menus' under game settings is set to HUD, or the mod will not work properly.
