Can i submit another forum for 'Links to external sites that deal with scripting and modding '

After domination

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.after-domination.net/phpbb3/index.php]After Domination modding forums[/url]
You may also want to remove the XFP link as that forum has now closed, or redirect it to the After domination forums, where the database is stored.

very 1st page wrote:The Script Editor

If you are certain that you want to use this unsupported feature, you may activate the script editor the following way in your game:
  • enter the menu to change your pilot's name
    type Thereshallbewings (note the capital T) and press enter
    the menu will close, your player name will NOT have been changed, and a confirmation beep will sound on correct activation
    you will now find the "Script Editor" menu item in the command console

-----
Troubleshooting if you can't open the SE
1. Have you changed your pilotname, not your ship name
2. Make sure you are not docked
3. have you used a capital T
-----
Hope that helped.

This is a month old and still no one added it to the list, I wonder why? :gruebel:
Please do so, thank you.

Could you please expand upon the following line in the intructions for activating the script editor:

"enter the menu to change your pilot's name".

I had to read through several pages of postings before I found out exactly what menu I had to go to to change the pilot name, and how to get there, and under what conditions it would work.

Thanks.

Is there anyway that we could get an updated list of tutorials and resources? I'm looking for information on doing ship modifications and I keep running into dead links. The last update of the original post was almost 3 years ago. :)

Specifically, I want to know how to move turrets and add turrets/guns to existing ships to create a new variant.

As a Starfleet Battles gamer, I see a few holes in the vanilla X3 game that I thought I could fill for myself.

Actually, that's only the last date that the original author changed the post. It doesn't record when someone else (moderators) edit that post. It definitely has been changed more recently than three years ago. :)

What links are you having trouble with? The ones I've tried which seem relevant all work for me.

Good to know that the moderators are updating it. :) I found X2 on Gametap and enjoyed it so much that I bought X2 and X3:Reunion, in the last couple weeks. So I'm a big noob at all of this.

Northstar's PDF Modding guide for beginners, for example, links to the thread talking about this guide, but the link in the thread goes to nothing.

I still don’t understand how I activate the ingame script editor so I can run user scripts. Everywhere I look everyone say go to "change name menu" and change your player name to "Thereshallbewings", but no one say how. This is begining to be frustrating. Where can I find this menu and what must I do to change the player name? Is it a hotkey, must I pray to god or must I buy a code? :)


Thanks for help

Tore
