There should be something on TSP, DB and in the old archives about this...

I can't remember who but someone made quite a nice tut about it somewhere... Let me see if I can dig it up! :)

Just remember SP modding you have to deal with the storyline if you plan on having the storyline in it. Depending on what you mod that is.

Make a liast of what you want to do and we will try and help you find the tutorial or help you mod that area.

Well i was thinking of changing the story line at some point, but for now i just want to repair the errors as i am being told about them. I have a player playing through it and reporting errors as he finds them.

At the moment i know there is a problem with baxter research station.

Ah... I thought you meant creating whole new storyline and not just correctiing errors/mistakes and make additions...

But in this case there's always the Quickfix patches made by Louva... They correct alot of things, BUT they are far from error free and those patches are "outdated" as they were made years ago and we have alot more knowledge about the game now...

So if Louva approves it maybe a new patch could be made using his as a template!?

to fix all errors of FL might take some time
sometimes I have the feeling that FL has more bugs than features

I second that OP...

The best way I've found to "correct" errors is to make total conversions... lol

But then... That requires a great bit of knowledge and help from others along with TIME to do it!

The UnderVerse has over vanilla 1700 fixes beyond Quickfix. And that doesn't count the tens of thousands of syntax corrections I have now completed for the next release or the removal of whitespace (also completed).

I understand that Argh's Toolkit was a massive project to 'fix' vanilla but it fixed too much and made vanilla users coming into the server crash because of incompatibilities. Simple solution, force them to use a mod!

Anyway, why build off of vanilla anymore? Been done to death. Too many boring, empty and irradiated systems. ;)

Hey no empty systems on my mod, i like filling empty spaces with things that fit into the story :D

Just take a look at the top half of Tohoku for example, i modded the giants causeway there with a rock base called skellig and a custom made base known as Druids Rocks. Has a nice high profit cargo run going there "druid fluid" but its no easy task flying almost blind through a minefield complete with asteroids and of course radiation oh and not to forget scanner efficiency reduced :D

Exactly why I stopped concentrating on vanilla and went for something I wanted to do in the first place... Make a TC based on two old games: Haegemonia: Legions of Iron and Haegemonia: The Solon Heritage!

Those two and FL are my favourite games of all times... So why not combine them!? Hehe... :D

Just google them if you don't know them... Better yet, buy them if you can find them!

Ive started working on a singleplayer storyline long time ago... but never finished it due to more important projects. The idea was to link the already story telling elements of my mod (quests) with a storyline that guides the play right through the game.

SP story editing is not that hard... but you always have to do the stuff step by step and dont leave the story path. In the end its just about logical causality. I hope that I find enough time to finish the story mode of my mod so I can release an update just for the singleplayers out there.

"druid fluid" that sounds familiar....

Could Nexus be a old Druid I know a while back???
