Sounds great I will test everything u do ur great thank u for ur time and effort i love star trek as much as this game and u will help keep this game alive forever at this rate thank u so much so I tested ur saved game editor and only bug I've seen so far is moving ingame things colonies and ships outpost and starbases work better then in the past everything else works so far no corrupt saves which is amazing even though u warn it can happen but adding task forces and everything works pretty good I added the wrong outpost to a wrong ppls colony by accident and the game crashed but then fixed it and was fine can u change the wormhole stuff it doesn't seem to work connecting wormholes doesn't seem to work in game or idk maybe it takes a turn to work but the save says it's good and I mean new wormholes not old already set wormholes

Oh something I did which was never able to b done even though in game u can steal ships from other races u could never add a borg sphere and have the federation use it but now u can add any ship of any race and change owner to the federation in my case and now u have a borg sphere as the federation lol thank u for ur work idk what else a saved game editor would need in a game like this even if it was only a saved game editor and nothing else it would b better than any other I've ever seen please keep going omg the things I'm thinking of doing and mods I want to do like a ultimate dominion mod mod where u start wit a save game that's at a wormhole and u have a Starbase ds9 owned by u and can't be re built and I'm sorry I'm thinking too much but I have ideas and ideas and ideas for save game mods not just mods

Question how different is Java and c++ cuz I learned Java and basic about 10 years ago I know a lot has changed but justa asking I know zero about anything else but old Java and basic is it possible I know enough to learn a little and b able to help and does anyone have the programs required to make models from scratch like creator if that's still needed cuz I want to do work on the stargate mod now that things r so advanced but I no long have creator or whatever it was but I know 3d modeling so whatever works now and I understand the phaser slots and everything so no need for a tutorial just a program

I'm sorry for late response, but I got sick on weekend and still don't feel good. Only this evening I managed to check back on your posts.
I will look into connecting wormholes when I'm getting better again, they have been working before.

not sure what other issues you found, but when you find some, I need reproduction steps
uploading a savegame might help as well

I remember there once was an attempt to create a more canon map for UDM3
It would be cool to have some scenario maps indeed, however with each mod change, the savegame compatibiliy might break again.
With UE I tried to support at least all the main mods by today. And if there is need, could look into upgrading existing savegames.

At the basics Java and C++ are pretty similar. But mastering C++ with all it's latest std library extensions, is a whole different thing. But with the framework project I plan to add some samples so when you know some programming basics you should be able to make use of it and then learn by doing. ;)

As long as the old engine isn't properly replaced, creator is still needed for creating new ship models. You might ask tunderchero on details. He also created some nice tutorials. ;)

I always loved to watch Stargate, would be cool if we'd have a more advanced mod for it. But in case you plan to base changes on any existing mod, best ask for permission of the mod creators first. If they can't be reached, ask TC what to do.

Trying to run the latest version and I'm getting this when I click FIle, Open - java.lang.NullPointerException

I checked the settings area and the language is set to English, even clicking the browse button in there for the trek.exe or stbof.res file shows the same error.

I redownloaded the binary and extracted the contents, but it still doesn't work.

Any advice Thunder?

Flocke would be better person to answer,
there is a couple versions out there, (where did you get files giving null error?)
but it would help if you compiled UE, give him branch you downloaded.

currently when I download latest branch I get "no action available" in gradle tasks with Eclipse
and can't get anywhere on Visual Studio Code.

I'm using the latest binary from - https://gitlab.com/stbotf/ultimate-editor/-/releases
So UE_0.9.0dev3.zip
It's odd, I know it was working a few months ago, as I've already edited the stbof file for the UDM mod.
I just reinstalled the latest java runtime just to be sure, but it still doesn't work.
Ah I just downloaded 0.8.0 and that one works ok, yay!

were you able to compile latest Branch? (improve_shipgfx_export)

I was able to compile, but Flocke will probably disapprove of how I was able to.

in build.gradle file I removed lines 117 - 125
then I was able to compile.
But I am not sure what code issue is with those lines.

The dirty commit version...
Well, I looked into adding a JAVA application manifest file. But it caused more troubles then what it's worth for, so I might just remove the manifest version anyhow. If it helps, removing the commit version is a reasonable fix for now.

I'm feeling better again and hope I find time to look into issues upcoming weekend. :cool:
