Hi Axis,

do you plan on creating any new fnt files? since I have not updated my monitor to 4k It is not easy for me to see how text will display on your images.

I am also sure it will also depend on your display size. :wink:

but I am not sure if you have seen this list or if I have even posted it before. while I was working on 1080 project I created I think a complete list of all code locations that uses the ******.fnt files. some are labeled other just labeled by subsection of ida database

I did post it here

Hi, thunderchero

Well, I don't know, yet anyway, though the thought has crossed my mind.

If you are updating your monitor to 4K, I recommend at least 40 inch monitor. For botf (for example), you can see everything clearly from 40 inch watching from arms length, though you have to turn your head sometimes for corner details, the experience is close to a movie theater experience.

I begun modifying the small pictures (those 30x30 and 60x50) to 50 x 50 and 100 x 100, but haven't tested them yet.

Structures screen 4K so far.

These are placed mostly on the 1920x1080 patch positions, just to give the picture, sort them out later.

I'll put here so I don't forget.

I've modified so far (for this mod) :

1. 9 planets per system.
2. Panterran-class planet.
3. No building upgrade.
4. Earth named to Terra and Sol to Sol Invictus
5. Federation font colors and images.
6. Map sizes, ship ranges, etc.
7. Main menu images.
8. Romulan font colors.
9. Planet animations, width increased to 200 pixels, also on the terraforming images.

Btw, the smallest map can be seen totally in large map view in these (you don't have to click yourself around the map, it's all seen at the same time).

Correction, they can all be seen entirely in the large map view.

I wonder how I can change the planet animations back to what they were in the Sol system, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars and Pluto animations were replaced by animations of a same planet type when I changed Sol's name.

I know I can always add the original animations by a different name and use them, it works too, but I thought could there be another way?

Another question is the problem with adding ships to the game. (I use UE).
How is it possible to add them without causing the battle screen to crash?

I have never edited plant names of sol, but I know there is a list of them in trek.exe. problem changing names would be hex space is very limited.

UE should not cause crash when adding new ship models. so it really depends on if you have any crash logs to help with problem.

and since you stated crash was in combat there are a few images in combat screen, if you changed image size this might be reason if they are missing or incorrect name.
