UDM - No purchase warning window

Post by Smallyoda » Sat Apr 19, 2014 10:29 pm

Hey Guys

Can anyone tell me why there is no purchase warning window like in vanilla? If I am considering buying a ship or some other production I like the warning window to come up and say "it is going to cost this much" and allow me to press purchase or cancel. in UDM it just buys it without letting me see the cost..

Is this something I can fix? An option somewhere?

Cheers

Yes it can be edited, It was disabled by request.

first download "QD patcher" from here

viewtopic.php?f=126&t=2515

unzip file then run "bof_patcher.exe" browse for the UDM install folder and select the trek.exe. (this will need to be done twice once for UDM and once for UDML)

in the bof_patcher look for "Disable the "Buy" confirmation dialog" (should be green to show the patch is installed) select line and click remove then click apply.

i wonder if we could poll players and see if disable should be an option as opposed to default. I do believe there is great value in this button for die hard micromanager...:)

I would vote to have it back to default if a choice were given.

Wow, really? I love not having to click that stupid confirm purchase button anymore! Of all the patches QD has come out with over the last couple years, that one's maybe my favorite (even if it's among the least important). ;)

This die hard micromanager(with a touch of "CDO") still welcomes the disabled warning; for the rare occasion when i want to see how much it costs, once i bought the ship/building/upgrade, clicking on it in the build list will tell me how much.
But that is just one opinion.

yeap, i will be honest here.. My life changed after the warning message button was disable. I became more mindless in spending money, witch is very important in this hard economic times, i started to hate my job, i lost weight.. overall.. is not the same. So please forgive me dear button, i did not defend you when i suppose to, i was just thinking "eh, big deal.. life goes on.. who cares", but i was so wrong. I miss you so very much, i wake up in the middle of the night crying.. i daydream a lot.. my life is pointless without you. I will just take it as a lesson from life. Sometimes small things make a huge difference. Miss you my friend, i hope i will see you back soon.

I am perfectly happy knowing I can enjoy the mod with the choice. I'm fine with using QD's patcher and re-enabling the option... but I don't see it.

I won't ask for this to be changed in the next version of this mod... that is the choice of the creator and I enjoy the mod either way.

But if I could get a nudge in the direction of what I am missing... old patch folder for QD's patcher perhaps?

Edit:
That was it, old batch in patch folder.
