Mod affect savegames?
« on: August 28, 2012, 07:34:52 pm »
After unpacking the 0ufoz.pk3 some of the file have warning that changing them can break savegames and some do not. But do they take effect when you load a save? I recently made changes to the research file to lower the amount of alien material needed to build advance aircraft but I don't see the changes in game. Did I miss another file that also needs to be changed or changes to the research file will not take effect unless you start a new game? Thanks.

This is what I changed in research.ufo

tech rs_craft_drop_herakles
      tech rs_craft_inter_stingray
   }

   require_for_production
   {
       item alienmaterials 1200      item   craft_alien_propulsion   4
      item   craft_alien_astrogation   1
      item   craft_alien_detection   1
   }

   provides   craft_drop_raptor
   time   13000
   producetime   320




I did the same on the Dragon, Starchaser and Stingray. Reduce the alien material cost and production time. Should this changes be reflected when loading a savegame or will only affect new game?

Thanks.

This changes should not have any effects for the savegame compatibility and should be reflected instantly.

For new productions, not sure if it instantly changes for productions in progress..
