Crash because of aircraft type
« on: January 06, 2012, 03:00:59 pm »
I added some weapons and made changes to hte game and everything worked fine. However, I then decided to add a newaircraft. I did thing before in the older UFO versions.

This time however, whenever I clock on their aircraft tab (in buy/sell) the game crashes stating that inter_starfire is not a known type.
tehy tpsye is set to interceptor tough.

I made the necessarsy meshes and placed them in appropriate folders, added hte craft to the research.ufo, models.ufo and aircraftmanagment.ufo.


Here:

What the hell could be causing this weird error?

you would have to modify code to make this work (scripts.c, humanAircraftType_t, V_AIRCRAFTTYPE)

WUT?

You hard-coded aircraft now?
WHY??
I had no problem adding my own aircraft in 2.3.
And the only type listed in any file is "craft" or "interceptor....


I'm confused...is it possible to add a new interceptor or not?

another question: Is there any way to set the ratio of male-to-female recruits?

currently you have to modify the code to add new interceptors or aircraft. this is due to the fact that we have to be able to identify the craft for various in-game structs. i hope this will get removed anytime soon - but not for 2.4

Ah...that sucks >:(

I wasn't aware this change was introduced. I made the model for nothing....


That said - any way to adjust the ratio of male to female soldiers, or is this also hard-coded?

Can it be externalized?

I'm trying to make Let's PLays or create specific teams, and re-starting the game 50 times is not fun. And editing the campaing to start with 50 people reduces difficulty.

Yes, it will be nice to select soldiers appearance. I do not like woman soldiers, and hate black ones.

I just want to set the ratios to something more sensible (let's face it - soldiers are mostly male. Especially the elite.)

But being able to select the apperance..or being able to create your own soldier (either by point distribution or re-rolling) ould be great. A lot of poeple are Roleplayers.

geever has talked about a possible save game editor, intended to cover same game transitions. But it might be possible to extend it to allow you to edit your soldier info for roleplaying situations. You'd have to dive into some code though, probably.
