regardng galaxy recall mod: no need to diff it, just do it the same way as ego changed the Files ;) in fact i already did that, feel ree to use too ;) (i am planning to go in a diffrent direction with this, not restoring the Non-VR Universe, but to have both VR and Non-VR Universe simultaneously)

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 ;)

Hi UniTrader, you son of a gun! :D

Good of you to join the party and thanks for sharing your code.

I tried to diff it, but was unable to make it work in its own different directory in order to keep it clean and be safe just in case Ego added a number 2 cat to the ego_vr.

No matter trying with the double extension method, also tried <add>, <remove> and <replace>; at some point it worked but was so slow in loading up that I just kept it as I did before.

I think though that they nailed it with the new highway loops which are a little less like rollercoasters.

I'm very curious about your merging of both universes.

So just as a heads up: This one didn't work:

Code: Select all

...and this one did at some point but was very slow in loading the game, and strangely also stopped working:

So I stopped trying and went with the initial method similar as to what you propose, which works just fine.

Ah on another note, it's a shame that your Rahanas Hybrid no longer works as intended, because it's a damn fine mod as well. She no longer comes with a shield when coming out of dock - and when going from sector to sector, the boost engines fire up, but she doesn't seem to pick up speed.

EDIT:

There is something very strange going on with both your code and the diff version of mine.

Leaving the Oculus on the side/away from the sensor and starting up the game, both your code and my diff code version works. Menu loads up on fine on 2D monitor, starting a game, still on 2D, the game loads. If I pick up the Oculus and switch to 3D all is well and the game works...

Now... trying to do the same and starting the game in VR, planet loads up in the background in VR, and then crashes to desktop before the menu is loaded - every single time. Code is identical... just can't figure out what is causing this.

Of course this is modded so no support there from Ego for this.

Only the code I used initially (the MOD2/ version) allows me to launch the game up fine both in 2D and with the VR headset on without CTD. I'm very intrigued as to why this is happening.

the one i posted is supposed to be put into its own mod directory, not the ego_vr Extension ;) and i think i know why yours fails: if a non-diff-file is present in a mod directoy it is merged with the respective Vanilla file (as if everything in the root node were in a<add sel="/*">) and this results in many double entries confusing the Game if messed with via diff assuming a non-merged file. My approach works because the last entry there wins (so basically the VR Universe, or my mod because its loads after the VR Mod thanks to content.xml)

in VR Edition? i will check it when i am back to XR, currently taking a Cities Skylines break. i think they might have removed the Engine and Shield Definitions in favour of other ones (or moved them in the compnent/macro hierarchy)

Ah ok, it loads fine in its separate directory, both on 2D and 3D - will put this one out instead of mine since it's cleaner and resides in its own directory.

...but both files up there are diff files, which resided in the extensions directory... Now I'm confused... This one below is a non diff and worked as expected next to cat_01 in the ego_vr directory and as you say had the last word in the matter since being cat_02.

The diff versions above worked neither as cat_02's nor in their own directory as cat_01's.

Here is mine that resided in the same directory as ego_vr and which worked fine...before you made it obsolete today :)

Ah good to hear that she has not been canned :) IIRC, it was also not working correctly on the X-R Vanilla version a little while ago and just for shits and giggles, I tested her out about 3 days ago on VR version and was showing the identical problem as well.

I will put up two X-R vanilla Galaxy Recall mods based on your code to replace mine, since it's cleaner as a solution in its own directory:

One with vanilla highways and one with new the new VR layout highways. -

Again, thanks for sharing :)

I started over tonight with deleting the old vanilla galaxy recall mod and open doors, like you stated in the first post.

I added the following mods of your collection afterwards:

ego_vr
Recall_CockpitMk1 - (dertien)
Recall_GamestartHoL - (dertien)
Recall_GamestartsVanilla - (dertien)
Recall_GamestartTO - (dertien)
Recall_OpenDoors - (eMYNOCK)

All seemed to went well, after starting a new game (since old savegames aren't compatible) the gamestarts are there as the cockpit is. But now the VR part of the game crashes from time to time, but always while docked on stations. The picture in the HMD freezes, the Touchcontrollers are inoperatible.
First i thought the game just crashes, but when taking off the HMD i realize that the game just paused like it does normally when taking off the HMD. I can resume the game on screen and save it, restart and play forth from the point the VR part crashed.

I never had this behavior before, so it seems to be something with the new files you added.

Any ideas?

Since others are reporting this bug too it seems to have nothing to do with your files - but strange enough that i never had this issue before.

Yesterday i was able to play again without any freeze. Strange. Will report in the other thread.

What i realized was that some random missions that expect me to talk to someone on a station are not working correctly. Maybe this is correlating with the open doors mod and the spawn behavior of NPCs at stations. The mission target sends me to the given dockpoint and tells me to dock there (to speak to an NPC) and after docking the NPC isn't there and the mission target tells me to return to ship. After returning to ship it tells me again do dock and so on ...

Could you take a look at that?

This should be already confirmed by the Devs, anyways i assume missions like Treasure Hunt, Ancient Relics, Healthy Enthusiast and those "colect stuff from drifting crates" are affected, hm?

if so you can look for your mission giving NPC via the station overview and simply talk to him/her via com... you should be able to hand in your goods with this method.

It is possible that some things might break, it is also very early to judge as to what is causing it, since ego is struggling with bugs on their own as well, and the game is still in early access.

Reducing the amount of mods and trying to isolate the issue by elimination should be a logical path if bugs are encountered.

I was planning on testing the 'old ' campaign and see how far it takes me with the mods we have so far activated.

Bringing Yisha back to the seat (so you can choose and mod your copilot) is one of the few things I think belongs on the Recall list - but a less straightforward affair than the ones already there at least in comparison to the ones I put back.

So I'm tempted to test the collection of Vanillla and XRVR gamestarts we have at the moment to see how well they all fare.

not in the mood to do any testing currently but regarding Yisha here two approached which might be worth a shot:

1) File assets/interiors/rooms/interors_rooms/playership_back.xml

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<diff>
  <remove sel="/components/component/connections/connection[@name='Connection_yisha']"/>
</diff>
make sure the related mod loads after the ego_vr mod. Also this will only work with a New Game.

(my theory is that the Copilot is preferably added to the back room, because she is technically required for any Menu..)



2) other idea which might work is this script line when the Player is in the CP:
<add_actor_to_room actor="player.copilot" room="player.room"/>
might require docking and undocking to update though..

Thanks for the tip Uni. Appreciated!

I saw that line as well last week, but didn't think it was going to be that obvious. - It wasn't - I just tested it :) . She was indeed quite surgically removed - not just using xml comment lines; and I am not familiar enough as to where all Yisha's ins and outs are hidden within the xml-files and its XRVR structure.

Furthermore, Yisha and Ren's seat-swivel animation was also removed from the original code, not just Yisha. I like the fact that the pilot seat 3D model stays put and does not swivel. The player's seat position can be overridden by xml and put a few feet backwards to solve the 'neck ache' problem we have currently when looking at the slideout monitor; which would in turn bring an extra mod to the collection.

As a Yisha recall mod we could use the 'Shady Slater' mod as a backbone and drop him in the copilot seat. His appearance can be changed pretty easily.

And as you say, UniTrader, leaving Yisha where she is but putting someone else in the copilot seat would suffice meaning that line of code from option 2) might come in handy, thanks for the tip!

i do not know if there are plans for the unused Gate in Silent Night...

I really appreciate all the work you're putting in this. Its fun to see how it all evolves. Since i have no coding experience i cannot help in this way but if i can help with testing anything in game i would gladly do if needed.

they are already linked, but only for the Player since i still have to teach the AI how to change Universe - guess why the both Torides are so close to each other ;) :D

PS @Boeng yeah, testing everything thouroughly will be required later, but first the ai must handle the anomaly travel properly, because npc travel between the universes is broken atm..
