[MOD] FLXRM - X3 Rebalance Mod for Farnham's Legacy(1.1) Initial release 1.0 (7/6/2021)

FLXRM - X Rebalance mod for Farnham's Legacy v 1.1

After i've released a small shippack mod i've decided for the partial port of the XRM to FL so here's the result:

Notices and updates:

*FLXRM 1.0 is built on FL 1.1 version, so make sure you dont update / opt in to beta
*FLXRM 1.1 will be updated after the official release of 1.2 patch (non beta)
*Play FLXRM in offline mode to avoid updating to 1.2 Beta release

Current FLXRM 1.0:
  • Currently ported features and changes:

    * New Weapons (XRM + CPP)
    * Rebalanced Missiles (XRM)
    * Some XTC ships/ XRM/ Cadius ships that were already in the XRM TC/AP
    * Semi rationalized loadouts ( since this is FL there's no need to rational restrictions )
    * Added some entries to the JOBS files
    * Edited 000044.xml file for custom voices
    * Custom X3Universe.xml/ WareTemplate.xml files
    * Some of the scripted events/ features of the XRM werent ported over because FL already has same/ similar or more advanced features
  • Missile and weapon changes:

    * All missiles are twice as fast, but some heavy damage ones deal half the damage but they have increased AOE explosion effect
    * Missiles in FLXRM unlike in XRM are extremely deadly so Missile Defence and good turret mods like Smart are a must have
    * All weapons are rebalanced, bullet speeds are fast but rate of fire is slower, the battles should last longer
    * Weapon hit effects shouldnt cause lagss

    Ship Changes:

    * Ported XRM engine effects for capital ships
    * Capital ships have slightly increased speeds, but also heavily increased shielding and hull
    *** Unlike XRM AP, this customized version for FLXRM makes Xenon way more lethal, ergo harder to clear the sectors because of their loadouts and ship variety ( M7M/M8 added including Strike-Frigate QX (previously named C in XRMAP))

This is initial release, some of the features may or may not be fully ported later on and current rebalance may change in future updates


Installation:
  • Download:

    XRM PART 3

    Backup your 00044.pck, 00144.dat and 00244.dat found in addon2/mov folder then delete 000044.pck
    Extract 00144.dat, 00244.dat from XRM_Part3 mov folder to the addon2/mov folder

    It should look like this:

    Image

    Do not install soundtrack part from the XRM_Part 3 archive, the soundtrack and sectors that use them arent yet ported over

    After you've done with XRM_part3 download:

    FLXRM

    Extract the archive from FLXRM.rar to your addon2 folder

    Fire up Plugin Manager, eneble modified mode, exit and play

    Note that you need to create a new game for the changes to take effect.

Technical stuff:

t file used - 9950

S folder is in cat/dat
The 00144/00244.dat files from XRM_part3 should go into addon2/mov folder just make sure to backup those and 00044.pck then all those 3 files you should move to your backup folder, then install 00144.dat/00244.dat
When you install FLXRM it should look like this:

Since youre installing it for FL all files should go to addon2 folder

Precaution cause we dont have yet no steam fl, and you will most likely install other mods that require this too :)

Without this it will also mark your game modified but i strongly suggest you run the plugin manager
