Re: Which Mods Support MP?

Ok. I edited trek.exe to add tech levels past 10. The next step is supposed to be adding entries for the new tech levels to stbof.res. However, I cant find a way to add entries. I can only editt the existing entries.

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

I figured it out! I was using Google Drive to pass the files. Apparently it cached the original (unedited) MMM trek.exe and stbof.res files I had put up there first. I was deleting them and uploading my edited files, but Google Drive would just use the first files it had cached instead of actually u...

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

I just opened the stbof.res file on my friends computer. I had created a copy of some ships and edited them. However, the new ships are not showing up when I open stbof.res in UE on my friends computer.

I feel like there are more files I should be passing.

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

If I can actually get this thing edited and working in MP for my friends and I, I will send Dafedz a PM and see what happens. Those last set of links and changes look a little scary. Ok, very scary! Is there a tutorial somewhere on QD's patcher and what it does? I haven't done anything with it yet.....

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

Quick question...is there an upper limit on ship cost? I tried jacking up costs on a new ship type (and tried requiring tech past 10) and it didnt go so well. Industry build cost is listing as a negative number.

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

Ok...I made the change to the scout range and shared...and I ran into sync error. Are there any files besides trek.exe and stbof.res that need to be shared with my friends? I also dove into modding wholesale and tweaked some things to balance it a little for MP and add a few surprises for my friends...

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

How hard is it to tweak the starting pops of the empire home systems? Running into some balance issues for MP. Any chance there is a nifty topic on this one?

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

Success! Everything looks good so far. Need to evaluate some maps to see if map generation is truely functioning properly. Two quick things: 1) Map density seems pretty sparse. Its like the same resources as a normal large map scattered across this vast area. I think I can just adjust the number of ...

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

The more I play Mirror Mirror Mod, the more I want to change the map size for the large map to 60x45 and the medium map to 40x30. It seems to me I have to open trek.exe with UE and change the Galaxy Generation settings for Map Size to my desired values. Then I have to change the other settings appro...

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

I might try to edit trek.exe if I cant find a large map mod I like. I hope the learning curve isnt too steep. I did get Mirror-Mirror working on MP. I was using the same computer, but I was testing with a different second machine. I did the installs the same on all three comps, so somewhere on the o...

Re: Which Mods Support MP?

Yes, All Ages Mod was installed with the All In One. I am only using the All In One installer at this time (and thank you SO much for that!). I am going to play a little bit with my installs and make sure I am testing things correctly on my end. Mirror Mirror is definately the mod I am targetting, a...

Re: Why should AFC remain online?

This site is an amazing resource. I would hate to see it disappear. I have only recently discovered this place, but I've been a stbotf fanatic since its release. I imagine I will find many interesting and like-minded individuals here. I certainly am hoping to get some input from the members to help ...

Starting with a question and then i...
