Re: The strange i_cl1270.tga image file crash

I ***think*** its 1366. But I was using the right size without knowing it was right... 0.o EDIT: Oook, I just found out what happened! When I edited the image using irfanview it told me it was a 270x225x24bpp, inducing me into error, making me believe it was a 24bit bitmap, so I saved it as a tga 24...

The strange i_cl1270.tga image file crash

Thunder, could you throw some light into this? I changed some of the ship models for all races and when Im close to finishing the ship selection process for my mod I stumbled with something unexpected: When I go to the shipbuilding screen and pass the mouse over the list, while the images change I s...

Re: An interesting finding

Thunderchero, I was just looking at the trim palette button and occurred to me that the limit of palettes is a signaled char. Cant one of the coders here try to change it to an int variable with the hex editor? That would definitely solve the palette limitation issue, allowing to have up tp 65535 pa...

Re: An interesting finding

And that would allow me to add ship models from the armada I & II?

What would be this new code for trek.exe?

What if every single ship have a unique size?

An interesting finding

I was messing with the color palette again and had one idea: I would extract all the gifs to a folder and then change one ship by importing another model and then extract all the gifs again and see what happens. I was hoping to find why the palette goes up each time one imports a new ship even if it...

Re: Upgrade Ships

Hellows. Yes, I knew the progression was wrong anyway but then it was an idea. Following a reduction of 50% each new upgrade means that at an upgrade from lvl x to lvl x+4 will make the crew XP be so much reduced its almost easier to make a new ship. So you need a good discount in the upgrade prices...

Re: Upgrade Ships

Yes, bring the ships back to a free shipyard for upgrading. Now about crew XP it should be a reduction to a fraction of the actual value based on the difference in levels from the actual level to the target level, since the player can have a ship from the beginning parked somewhere till the endgame....

Re: HOW TO: Reduce the number of Palettes

Hellows. First of all I want to thank thunderchero for his ideas on textures's palette reduction, which I based myself and improved, and Zweistein000 for his GIMP hint. I tried GIMP and besides it having the color converting tools I had a bad time with its selection tool, which I found to be counter...

Re: Cant post a pic

Yes, and I noticed it limits me to only 3 pics. I want to post a small guide I made and I need to post 11 images. Do I have to use a online repository? If yes, which one you suggest?

Re: On terraforming gas giants

I checked UM5 and I didnt like the way the moons are displayed. I think it would be nicer if you could see them actually orbiting the planet. I think it can be done. And I noticed he changed the planet letter from blue to red so it can be terraformed. How can this trick be done?

Re: On upgrading a building

Now just occurred me to ask this: Are there any hex editting that should be done alongside the patching? If yes, where I can find them? Is there a list of that info? It would be nice to have them all listed in one place. And thunderchero, what is this hex editting for? You cite it at your post at th...
