4.10 beta 4

Code: Select all

[=ERROR=] 0.00 Cannot match path '//library[@name='CheckObject']/actions/do_if/do_if/do_if[@value='md.$AllowMultiMissions or not @$HasMission']/do_all/do_elseif[@value='$Object.isclass.station and $Object.hasstorage']/do_else[do_all[@exact='$Sequences.count']]' in patch file 'extensions\simooms_lantern\md\upkeep_management.xml'. Skipping node.

I wanted to try to make a Russian translation, but I did not succeed.
Add the whole menu text in the language file. Otherwise, do the normal translation of the text is not possible.

Substitutional text is not correct.

Wondering

Is this mod still being maintained/updated? tried downloading from Nexus (I got the HoL Complete edition on GoG) mines version 4.10 I can download your mod with NMM but I don't have an option to switch it on in my extensions its just locked to off (Sidebar seems to be the same way but he apparently has a 4.10 update here I'm trying to figure out how to install) just hoped to find that this one will get an update for the new version as it looks to be an awesome mod.

Manually download from nexus. Place in extensions folder. You have to run your interface in legacy mode. Not working with sidebar extensions from my testing.

Re: [Mod] "Simoom's Lantern" - Ultimate Cheat Menu

Post by mrcoffee911 » Sun, 13. Jun 21, 18:39

first, thanks to all you modders who've made xr even more playable and enjoyable since i stopped playing several years ago. am a player, not a modder, so hope someone might be able to help. playing some extra systems (by john colman, must haves imho) mods that work best with new game but so far along in current game don't want to start new yet. problem is stations in these systems are spawned with no management or cargolifters, thusly no trade offers, so no economy, and my yat traders just stop. had been using simooms lantern to claim stations, bump crew up, install cargolifters, and return ownership to original faction, and it worked, the sectors economies started coming to life. slight problem tho....ran across new factions from mods that aren't in simooms faction menu. in tinkering, was able to add a new "faction page" in simooms Target_Manipulation.xml file in change faction section with new factions, and it actually works. HOWEVER....the legacy "menu option buttons", which show the faction names, show the faction names of the page i copied, inserted between 2 other pages, then modified "choiceparam=" with faction "id" found in my save. see code line below:

Code: Select all

<add_player_choice_sub     text="{20203,1101}"  position="top_left"      section="SimoomsLantern_target_faction_set"  choiceparam="[faction.fijiargnu]"          comment="Fiji Argnu"/>
in the example above, i'm assuming the string "text="{20203,1101}"" refers to faction name id's in vanilla text pages, since only vanilla factions are available to choose? i've looked in the mods .cat files and can't find any reference like this for new factions to save my life. all i want to do is add the new factions in john colmans system mods and also krychokes lost sectors mod to the faction list and think this text file reference is it.
again, i'm no modder and smoke starts pouring out my ears when trying to read up on modding topics, so hopefully all this makes sense and also hopefully what i want is do-able. thanks to anyone giving this post a look.

Hello,

I don't know if John Colman has also integrated new factions into his mods. In any case, I have not found any in a hurry. But Lost Sectors has added some.

The PageID of Lost Sectors is 40404

The factions text:

Code: Select all

    <t id="410">Searchlight Industries</t>
   
    <t id="420">Goner</t>
   
    <t id="430">Argon colonists</t>
  
    <t id="440">Hayen</t>
   
    <t id="450">Kha'ak</t>
   
    <t id="460">Rootless</t>
  
    <t id="463">Terran Colonial Command</t>
  
    <t id="466">Dark Space</t>
    
    <t id="478">Yohanis Corporation</t>
Greetings
SirFrancisDrake

Thank you. You should also take a look on my Vacana Ship Mod Add On for Herschel's Gift. :)

You can find the factions in faction.xml in the libraries folder.

You can find the texts in the t-files. In the t folder.
There is the PageID and further down the factions.

Here is an example from the Lost Sectors t-file 0001.xml:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!--author KrYcHokE-->
<language >
    <page id="40404" voice="no">
    <t id="1">Trade Station</t>
And further down the factions:

Code: Select all

<t id="410">Searchlight Industries</t>
    <t id="411">Searchlight Industries acts as a contractor appointed by the government to meet all official industrial needs and needs of the Source of Darkness sectors. In other words, during the last ten years, Cerchlight Industries has been a mining corporation, as well as others in the Source of Darkness during the isolation period.</t>
    <t id="412">SI</t>
    <t id="420">Goner</t>
    <t id="421">These researchers and scholars were once seen as ordinary sectarians who believe in ancient legends about the planet Earth and about the ancient battles with terraformers. The studies of the Goner's were forced to rewrite history textbooks and opened the way for new scientific discoveries - jumping engines and transportation devices that allowed us to begin exploration of the distant space.</t>
    <t id="422">GO</t>
	<t id="430">Argon colonists</t>
    <t id="431">After the connection with the Argon Federation was lost, the Council of Argon Colonies became the governing body in the Source of Darkness.</t>
	<t id="432">ARC</t>
So if you want to add the Searchlight Industries faction for example, you should change the code to:

<add_player_choice_sub text="{40404,410}" position="top_left" section="SimoomsLantern_target_faction_set" choiceparam="[faction.searchlight]" comment="Searchlight Industries"/>


You can find the faction ID in the factions.xml
Example Searchlight Industries:

Code: Select all

 <faction id="searchlight" name="{40404,410}" description="{40404,411}" shortname="{40404,412}" primaryrace="argon" behaviourset="default" known="1" tags="protective watchdoguser">
      <icon active="faction_searchlight" inactive="faction_searchlight" />
      <licences>
        <licence type="hazardousmaterials" factions="argon_colony" />
        <licence type="intoxicants" factions="argon_colony" />
        <licence type="military" factions="argon_colony" />
        <licence type="pharmaceuticals" factions="argon_colony" />
        <licence type="protectedspecies" factions="argon_colony" />
      </licences>
      <relations>
        <relation faction="atlas" relation="-0.5" />
        <relation faction="hayen" relation="-0.5" />
        <relation faction="criminal" relation="-0.5" />
        <relation faction="enemy" relation="-0.5" />
        <relation faction="friend" relation="0.5" />
        <relation faction="hereticvanguards" relation="-0.5" />
        <relation faction="khaak" relation="-0.5" />
        <relation faction="reivers" relation="-0.32" />
        <relation faction="smuggler" relation="-0.06" />
        <relation faction="sovereignsyndicate" relation="-0.5" />
        <relation faction="xenon" relation="-0.5" />
		<relation faction="ls_dark_space" relation="-0.5" />
		<relation faction="mlspirate" relation="-0.5" />
      </relations>
    </faction>

@sirfrancisdrake, thanks again for the education. john colman steered me in the right direction for his factions and now all factions in my game (that i care about) are displayed on the legacy menu buttons. suggested he may want to visit the thread where unused pages/ids used by modders are being documented.
now, with the utmost respect to simoom, it's time to figure out how to remove the gut-wrenching alarms and annoying ren/yisha comments, which were cute at first but those 2 quickly get old :D
