Ok ive got another question how exacly do you make a weapon?

Ill take any info I can get on modding!

Post Thu Sep 07, 2006 6:20 am

-1 = anybody can buy
0 = atleast neutral to buy
1 = very friendly to buy

Make sure that your neutral or worse with the base your trying to buy the ship on so you can test it, as a small note all vanilla ships are -1.

Look at that for making new weapons.

I am aware of the reps values however the code I posted did not limit me from buying the ship. Why wouldn't that code work? Changing the value had no effect even though my rep is at about -.250

Chess, make sure you are on the correct base. If you edit the rep you need for one base, it won't affect the others. Only thing I can think of...

i made a base using the instructions on this forum
i changed the name and info (works)

you can land at it, visit all the rooms without problems
but the problem is:
i cant take off anymore
i used the rooms of manhattan with the exeption of the cityscape
i used li01_15_deck.ini

how can i fix this?

lol, i see your problem...or at least i think i do! Because your using everything BUT the planetscape for the base, you wont have the launch pad area on it. besicly u need to get another base template, such as Buffalo or West point to implement into your base. i think there is also a way of changing the ini file of your base in the BASES folder of that particular system, heres mine

The location of it (this applies to other bases aswell )

The data within that file

nickname = LI06_01_Base
start_room = Deck

nickname = Bar
file = Universe\Systems\LI06\Bases\Rooms\LI06_01_bar.ini

nickname = Deck
file = Universe\Systems\LI06\Bases\Rooms\LI06_01_deck.ini

nickname = Deck2
file = Universe\Systems\LI06\Bases\Rooms\LI06_01_deck2.ini

Note the last line, that room is the room from which you take off in - in my case atleast

Hope this helps!

(yes i was stabing in the dark completly, but at least its sumat aye? )

Allternitavly, you could post your base code on here and see what everone makes of it

but how do you increase the speed of trade lanes?

Post Tue Dec 26, 2006 1:47 am

Hey guys.

I have a quick question:

I made my own system with FLE, but how do I set the bases to offer
random missions?
I think i have to place a mission target over a patrol but...

When I have activated the mod (and OpenSp lite), and start the game...
New Game-> I'm on the base that i wanted Launch->CTD!
What causes this?
If someone could give a explanation on how, for example,
make the Liberty Navy give Missions against Lane Hackers (all in a new system)

Post Wed Dec 27, 2006 5:00 pm

@sabreman, you have to edit the EXE file for FL, look in this thread for what you have to do

i got a jumpgate and a base in there at the moment

now i want some tradelanes
i looked trough the forum multiple times and even used the forum search but i could find anything about making a tradelane

after a few attempts i placed the tradelanes on the right places and even the names appear correct but i wont stop when i pass the last tradelane
i expect it has something to do with this (look below) but i dont understand this

i havent placed this in my system file because i didnt undestood this
this i just a copy from a tradelane from New York
