Making race specific modules NOT race specific?


#1

Is it possible to make the race specific modules available to all races with a simple .dll edit?

If so, can anyone provide some direction on how to do this?


#2

just go to the module .txt files and take out the restricted = alliance line or restricted = federation etc. line.


#3

Just a quick warning for removing the race specific restriction on the “Fusion Torpedo Launcher” for the Alliance.
If you wish to use this weapon for the Empire or the Rebels you will have make a small modification. You can do this 2 ways:

A) Turret Mapping by Module
In “data\modules\cruiser_alliance_fusiontorpedo.txt” change the line
turret_sprite = “turret_plasma_v4”
to
turret_sprite = “turret_plasma_v3”

OR

B) Turret Mapping by Race
in “data\races\rebel.txt” about half way down you will see the line
turret_plasma_v3 = plasma_turret_v3.dds,turrets_rebel.dds,26
Copy and pase that line and change it to
turret_plasma_v4 = plasma_turret_v3.dds,turrets_rebel.dds,26

you will have to do the same for the “data\races\empire.txt”
