Hi korsss.

This guide can help you with some points in how to use the modular mod system. Can you tell us what you've tried to do so far?

EDIT: My Drone Strike Package features an AWACS-style aircraft. That can help as well!

Thx Max for the quick advice ))) (I`m a poet ???))

But:

1) your advices are not working ( things like open office or libre office are breaking the files, I have lost 2 days to understand it), I cant understand where is the problem may be in international codding ? I must do this job in the Note++

2) may you give me one working drone, which can be BUYed in the start of the game ? (I am affraid to edit reserches untill I can`be shure in another files).

3) about your guide thx a lot, ofcourse I will try to understand it, but my english is really terrible. another better way is to do job step by step )

with best wishes Sergey Korsss

1)

?

My guide does not advise using OpenOffice or LibreOffice. I have never advised you to use either. Where have I written that? And my guide can only help you with non-spreadsheet XML. I haven't written any advice for using XML-Spreadsheet files.

2) I can re-write the AWACS aircraft you originally wanted re-written for the modular mod system. But not now. Right now, after I have written this post, I am going to bed.

3) I do not advise using google translate to translate my guide from english into your language. The guide is written using english phrases which do not translate well.

A quick point on this - there's currently no way by which you can have items available for purchase. The only exceptions are aircraft (and even then you can only mod existing aircraft entries to be purchaseable; adding entirely new ones doesn't allow this). Although, it's something I might try and rectify in XCE if it's within my capabilities.

Wouldn't work - you'd have to make it a manufacturing project (though there's no reason, if you wanted it to be quick, that you couldn't give it a short manufacturing time).

It's not the mod system; it's just the way the game is coded. For whatever reason, the game is hard-coded such that the only aircraft that can be made buyable are those listed in the vanilla aircraft.xml file. Add a new entry and setting it to buyable doesn't work. You can work around this by converting an existing entry to the one you want to mod and make buyable, then creating a new entry for the original aircraft you just replaced. But it's a lot of messing.

yes, i am understanding it ))) but the mod system must change the starting data in the vanila aircraft.xml to (imho).

"You can work around this by converting an existing entry to the one you want to mod and make buyable, then creating a new entry for the original aircraft you just replaced. But it's a lot of messing."

:D russians call`s it the "shamanic dances with a tambourine"

PS we will go on another way(big price - low 'unit days'), and the legend in xenopedia (your workers are not producing it but only checking the new aircraft)

PPS How can i join to "RadicalTactics Modding Community" ?

Honestly, I think this needs to be the explanation for manufacturing any aircraft. The notion of 30 guys building an entirely new aircraft design from scratch in a week is hilariously absurd. Although the same applies to basically all R&D activity in the game.

It's not active any more to the best of my knowledge so probably not worthwhile in any case.

I'm 95% certain that it's the 'a' I've highlighted in red there. If you remove it I suspect it should work.

Yeah, it's more or less impossible at the moment. I'm not even sure you could add a new dropship onto the maps; certainly the different UFO types are hardcoded such that you can't add in new UFO submaps to maps.

Without a unique art both dropship and UI graphics, i dont think it will fit the game.. 3 is enough anyway.. i thought to update the 2. one to carry one more vehicle.. but not worth it..

Still can't be done at the moment - the drop-site would still need to be a separate submap (even if you used the same format as the Valkyrie) and even then I don't think there's any way you could add it to the maps due to the spawn-site list in the map editor being hard-coded.

And you think that there are no any chance to outwit the game and to feed it the new dropship in Valkyrie format ?

cause now all is working before landing, and how can i try to use Valkyrie dropzones? no ideas ?

thx

Nope. All you can do at the moment is re-purpose the Valkyrie. Remove the Valkyrie from where it is in the tech tree, rename it in strings, etc. etc. You would have to make it look externally (i.e. to the player) like it was a different dropship, but internally (i.e. to the game) like it was the original valkyrie. You still only have 3 dropships, maximum.

"You still only have 3 dropships, maximum." really ? and impossible to add more ? It is the game limit ?

I am upset (((

the idea was to add 2 dropships (light and heavy), and edit the range of dropships flight (make it shorter). more bases- more soldiers.
