When using Alternatives to Death with the Star Wars Interworlds mod, you need to be aware that this will mess up Xenon faction relations.
SWI introduces a couple new factions and AtD replaces the Xenon faction relations, ignoring any new factions as well as terran and pioneers, split and free families, so it should even have an effect in Vanilla, as it will make Xenon ignore terrans and pioneers ships. Same goes for Khaak.
Might want to take a look and see if it wouldn't be better to use a more strict replace in factions.xml so it doesn't mess up with new factions and to properly work with CoH and Split DLC.

Code: Select all

	<replace sel="/factions/faction[@id='xenon']/relations">
		<relations>
			<relation faction="alliance" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="antigone" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="argon" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="buccaneers" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="civilian" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="criminal" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="hatikvah" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="holyorder" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="holyorderfanatic" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="khaak" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="ministry" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="paranid" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="player" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="scaleplate" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="smuggler" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="teladi" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="trinity" relation="-1" />
			<relation faction="visitor" relation="-1" />
		</relations>
	</replace>
This will leave Xenon at peace with terran, pioneers and any other new not listed faction (for SWI, it affects Galactic Empire, The Order, Sienar Council and the Mandalorian factions (ex Split, Free Families).
I know on the Nexus page it specifically says "for 4.0 of Base Game", but as there are several Split related code parts in there, I guess this faction relation issue is probably not intended? So people might not be aware that this puts several factions on a one-sided war with the Xenons.

Thank you!
I've trimmed the factions definitions for this mod to address this. It should be in ATD's next release.
The purpose of having Khaak and Xenon definitions is only to unlock them for the Assimilation feature. But I now unlock them in the code.
What's weird is that I've seen the Xenon attack the Split with the previous factions definitions. Never mind.

Thanks for looking into it. I noticed the issue with Terran fighters attacking the shipyard in Savage Spur. First I was like „how did 4 fighters even get there through all those Xenon sectors?“ but then I also noticed that neither the shipyard nor any Xenon fighters would retaliate.
What works however is, when Xenons have a specific order to attack these targets.
So maybe that is why you were seeing Split fighting the Xenons.
I play with a stripped down version of Dynamic Wars, basically just the UI parts to display faction strength and relations, without the dynamic relation changing events.
That helps a lot in finding relation issues and also helps to find dying factions before it is too late for any help or balancing interventions. :)

I figured out why the factions definitions in the currently released version worked for me.

Even if my mod doesn't specifically set Split as enemies of the Xenon and Khaak, the Split DLC would have set the Xenon and Khaak as enemies of the Split.
And because of that, the game would have set the Xenon and Khaak AIs to consider the Split as enemies.
I noticed the Xenon and Split fighting (i.e. invading their opponent spaces) when I first joined the Argon war - so pretty early on in my game.
But I suppose the Xenon would have reacted at the beginning times of a game.
The relationships in the faction definitions are only for initialising them - a fact that I missed when I first replied to your comment.

Anyway, I've removed the Xenon and Khaak definitions from the mod's factions.xml.
I'm releasing updates, including for Alternatives To Death with this change, tomorrow.

Alternatives to death: https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/551 v2.0.6, 29 May 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-New feature: Clone alternative can now de-prioritised, which allows it to be chosen randomly like the other alternatives. Clones are first exhausted before the other alternatives are used unless it is de-prioritised. By default the clone alternative has priority. Change this in the Extensions Options.
-Bug-fix: Licences weren't getting removed/updated after "death".
-Bug-fix: The destruction countdown is now paused at 3 seconds if the Map menu or the Transporter Room menu is open, which allows you to spend as much time choosing your teleport destination. Previously, the countdown wasn't paused - which was the bug. (Note that when my other mod, Teleport from Rransporter Room, is used, you can only teleport by using the Transporter Room panel.)
-Tweak: Damage-per-second (DPS) monitor.
-Tweak: Removed the now unnecessary Khaak and Xenon definitions from factions.xml. They were there to unlock them for the Assimilation feature to work. Unlocking them now work at the code level.
Crime has consequences: https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/566 v2.0.7, 29 May 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-New feature: Disable crime accumulation with pirates. By default this is enabled. Disable this in the Extensions Options. Pirates are factions with their relationship to the player locked at a negative value. I think the base game has the Scale Plate locked at -5, so they are pirates. But Duke Buccaneers are locked at +10, so they are not pirates. (Pirate faction detection is not straightforward. And I only found the method described just recently.)
-New feature: Add Fines and Forfeiture Offices to stations tagged as a pirate base.
-New feature: Ships scans in your territory (zone and/or sector) are no longer illegal.
Friendly fire tweaks: https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/708 v1.0.1, 29 May 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Bug-fix: The targeted victim condition was broken. Previously, when enabled, which was by default, attacks on targeted friendlies would always be ignored.
-Tweak: Low shields condition is now off by default. Note that this only affects when the mod is newly installed. Those who are updating the mod can disable this in the Extensions Options.
-Tweak: Removed the requirement for Mod Support APIs. It was unnecessary code that I left over.
Modification parts trader: https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/721 v1.0.1, 29 May 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Bug-fix:Finding wares tagged with "eqiupmentmodpart". Previously, only wares tagged with "primarymodpart" was getting added to the barter system.
NPC reactions: https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/497 v2.1.5, 29 May 2021:

-Tweak: Better selection of bridge crew. Better prioritsing of NPCs already on the bridge. Better method of making them stay on the bridge.
-Tweak: Rumours now stick on the Conversation Menu until you select it or it expires.
-Tweak: Bar Patrons now move around the bar. Previously, they were stuck in their starting positions.
-Bug-fix: Data vault and anomaly rumours were broken. They would be presented as rumours in the Conversation Menu but their missions weren't getting created.
-Bug-fix: Various bugs when the mod, Extended Conversation Menu, is installed.
Reputations and professions: https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/636 v1.1.5, 29 May 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Bug-fix: Piracy points accumulation was broken in some cases.
-Bug-fix: Crafting activities were broken.
-Tweak: Builders guild mission reward level lowered (again) to 3. Previously it was at level 5.
-Tweak: Guild missions: expand search for neutral mission ships/stations (used in mission creation) to 3, 4 then 5 gates away if none found. Previously, this stopped at 2 gates away.
Surface element targeting: https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/710 v1.0.4, 29 May 2021:

-Tweak: Removed requirement for Mod Support APIs.

Just a heads up, 4.10 beta is out and UI Extensions breaks the mission overview panel.
As is, I can't see my current missions with it loaded.

Re: [mods] kuertee's (gameplay, QOL, UI): Updates 15 Jun: 4.1beta1 compatibility updates, new features to various mods

Post by kuertee » Mon, 14. Jun 21, 22:07

I've released update to mods that required changes to work with the v4.1beta1 of the game.
Mods that are not updated are compatible with v.4.1beta1 of the game.





Alternatives to death (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/551): v2.0.7, 15 Jun 2021:
Crime has consequences (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/566): v2.0.8, 15 Jun 2021:
High-security rooms are locked (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/540): v2.0.3, 15 Jun 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Compatibility: Station seed property used in creating rooms for 4.1beta1.
Friendly fire tweaks (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/708): v1.0.2, 15 Jun 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Bug-fix: The game has a bug that executes the change target event with a null target when the mission pings WITHOUT removing the actual lock on the target. This bug prevents this mod's targeted vicitim condition from working when your target is also the mission target. This update works around this quirk by ignoring the null target specified in the change target event and querying the game's internal code for the target.
Modification parts trader (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/721): v1.0.2, 15 Jun 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Compatibility: Station seed property used in creating rooms for 4.1beta1.
-New features: Trade your mod parts for credits. But note that the traders are interested in mod parts and not in credits. You can barter mod parts with them or sell mod parts to them. You can't buy mod parts from them.
-Bug-fix: The trader doesn't have inventory in new games that are less than 1 hour old.
More generic missions (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/622): v1.0.2, 15 Jun 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Tweak: The number of missions that the mod tries to generate is either 2 x the number of stations in the sector or 25, whichever is fewer. Previously, this was either the number of stations or 25.
-New feature: When a mission is accepted or the offer is expired, new missions are generated. Previously, no replacements are generated at these events. Instead replacements are generated only when Egosoft's 10-minute looping timer expires (or when the player enters a new sector). These two events are still active. This version adds the acceptance and expiration events to trigger the regeneration.
NPC reactions (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/497): v2.1.7, 15 Jun 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Compatibility 4.1beta1: Station seed property used in creating rooms.
-Compatibility 4.1beta1: NPC State Machine for AI pilots in player ships.
-Bug-fix: Bridge crew getting disabled intermittently while in flight - requiring the player to get up and then re-take the controls.
-Bug-fix: Bridge crew: handle when crew changes - e.g. when their post is changed by the player.
Reputations and professions (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/636): v1.1.6, 15 Jun 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Compatibility 4.1beta1: Station seed property used in creating rooms.
-New feature: Kill counter by reputation (e.g. Defender, Vigilante, etc.) and by faction.
-New feature: Mission counters: completed / failed. Tours of duties counter: completed / failed.
-New feautre: Tour of duties are story missions and war subscription missions.
-New feautre: New Reputation menu to show the counters above.
-New feature: Builder and Shipwright guilds missions are limited to 1. Disable this in the Extensions Options.
-Tweak: Better detection of mission targets. Previously, some mission targets were not getting attributed to the mission - resulting in Vigilante poiints.
Surface element targeting (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/710): v1.0.5, 6 Jun 2021:
Spoiler
Show
-Bug-fix: The last update prevented the mod from working on new games.
UI Extensions and HUD (https://www.nexusmods.com/x4foundations/mods/552: v2.2.0, 15 Jun 2021:

I had releases lined up already. Then when I jumped back into the game to give it one last test before release, I got errors.
The game updated in the short time I had a break between my last edits and my planned pre-release play test.
After fixing the errors, I managed to get about an hour of play before doing my release routine (which actually takes several hours itself). :D

Unfortunately, no. I noted on both the mod's description pages and their file tabs the updates that are not compatible with the old v4.0 of the game.

I'm very curious about new Reputations and professions features - this mod unexpectedly has become very important for my playstyle. I'm loving it.
But propably will jump into 4.1 on next beta iteration - can't "afford" early beta currently.

i had a quick look at the diff just now.
it's likely that all but one of my new updates will work with v4.0 so long as you use UI Extensions v2.1.1 - the last version of UIX for v4.0.
I'm resetting the game back to 4.0 and then play-test the game for about an hour or two.

the only one that may log an error is NPC Reactions: Bridge Crew.
NPC: BC will still work, however.
but if the ai pilot is a bridge crew member, they will move about the ship.

Does the new very cool counters menu require UI Extensions and HUD v 2.2.0?
Just started playing with Reputations and professions version 1.1.6 + UI Extensions and HUD v2.1.1 on X4 v4.0 - and there is no new menu.
I am absolutely disgusted and expect a quick explanation!

hahaha!
unfortunately, yes. Reputations and professions (RAP) v1.1.6 require UI Extensions (UIX) v2.2.0 which only works in v4.1beta1.
but I've reverted my game back to v4.0 to re-release my recent updates for v4.0.

they were working in v4.0, anyway - before my game auto-updated to v4.1beta1 a couple of days ago.
i only released updates for v4.1beta1 so that those on it can keep using my mods - with the understanding that their reliability may/will lessen at each new beta/hot-fix that Egosoft release.
and now that my mods have some playability in v4.1beta1, I've reverted my game (and development) back to v4.0.

expect releases for v4.0 in about 12 hours.





Notes:
1. the Tours of Duties list in the new RAP UI will be empty because previous versions of RAP didn't count them.
2. Kills, however, will have data - but their Reputations classifications (e.g. Defender, etc.) will be a little off due to the bugs that were present in previous versions.
(i embedded a kill counter several versions back (and have been monitoring it in my game) - with the thought that i'd release a new UI for them.)
3. the Missions will also have data but they will show objectives completed against each mission - because that's how pre-v1.1.6 versions of RAP counted them.
from v1.1.6, missions are counted WHEN they are completed - not when an objective is completed.
(but objective completions still count to your Reputations/Professions points as in previous versions of RAP.)
4. RAP v1.1.6 (v4.1beta1) and the upcoming v1.1.7 (v4.0 AND v4.1beta1) count these events better and will report more accurate data.
5. this new UI is my compromise to my Medals and Ribbons add-on idea for RAP.

EDIT: Also, This v4.1beta1 release kind-of delayed my work on the Galactic Council mod. :(
I want to return to it but cannot until this weekend.

i only released updates for v4.1beta1 so that those on it can keep using my mods - with the understanding that their reliability may/will lessen at each new beta/hot-fix that Egosoft release.
and now that my mods have some playability in v4.1beta1, I've reverted my game (and development) back to v4.0.
expect releases for v4.0 in about 12 hours.
Great, thanks for a heads-up and teasing new releases.
I always feel like a little kid getting a new toy when an update comes out, even if it contains just fixes :)

Notes:
1. the Tours of Duties list in the new RAP UI will be empty because previous versions of RAP didn't count them.
2. Kills, however, will have data - but their Reputations classifications (e.g. Defender, etc.) will be a little off due to the bugs that were present in previous versions.
(i embedded a kill counter several versions back (and have been monitoring it in my game) - with the thought that i'd release a new UI for them.)
3. the Missions will also have data but they will show objectives completed against each mission - because that's how pre-v1.1.6 versions of RAP counted them.
from v1.1.6, missions are counted WHEN they are completed - not when an objective is completed.
(but objective completions still count to your Reputations/Professions points as in previous versions of RAP.)
4. RAP v1.1.6 (v4.1beta1) and the upcoming v1.1.7 (v4.0 AND v4.1beta1) count these events better and will report more accurate data.
5. this new UI is my compromise to my Medals and Ribbons add-on idea for RAP.
Understood, would expect some "calibration" with new RaP mechanisms.
Also I don't exclude making a clean save to track my progress from ground.
