Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

Okay, this DOES help - but it also raises more questions for me! So I hope you can oblige... First off, is that CE actually does - minimally perhaps, but still does - change some of the Vanilla weapons; for example, some are just renamed (like Burst Laser I/II/III/IV), but that's still a change - ye...

By "my editor," do you just mean Notepad or Akelpad or whatever? I guess I'll have to figure out how to do that. :/

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

Hi, guys, So previously I had wanted to edit CE just to make a few balance changes and such to weapons (too strong or too weak types), but didn't have the right text editor. Now I do - but I've looked through the various files (including "Blueprints") and cannot seem to find the right fil...

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

Right - so I have 7Zip, and I opened the .ftl file, but I couldn't find the weapons' list anywhere - just ships. :/ Should be in one of the files with blueprints in their name, like blueprints.xml, dlcBlueprints.xml, and.. dlcBlueprintsOverwrite.xml? Ctrl+f in them to look for the weapon values. Ok...

Re: [AE][Alpha] New tool to change hidden game values in the executable

Would be fun to create a race with this that has a stationary function - like, say...the Piranha Plant...has a movement of 1 with a crapload of hit points and damage...it mans a system and can fight, but it can't really heal, and if it dies with a Cloning Bay it'll be too much of a nuisance to repos...

I'll tackle the responses in reverse order. :) Re: Q3 - Aha, thanks karto, that's what I thought - too bad! Guess my ideas for a Federation BattleCruiser and a Federation Carrier just won't work, then. :( I realize that one can have a massive Weapons array of 6 slots, but it just doesn't work right ...

Re: Questions here: an inquiry thread! [Updated Sep 15th, 2014]

Hi, there - so I just have a tiny project I'd like to do, and would like some guidance, as none of the modding tutorials I've looked at exactly cover this. Rather than making my own mod, I'd like to edit an existing one, namely CE. I'm just concentrating on adjusting some of the clearly too strong/t...
