Vanilla addon - variants mod V2.1 (0.54.1a)
« on: October 24, 2012, 02:22:26 PM »

First of all most important thing: this mod wouldn't be possible if there wasn't master coder LAAAAAAAAZYYYYYY WIIIIZAAAAAAARD (LazyWizard). All i have was idea and this dude make my idea reality :) So he did all new code and i did all variants :)





This mod adds 296+ (new variants in vanilla game. Only variants of vanilla ships. There is no new ships in this mod. None :)
This mod randomize all vanilla variants in all vanilla fleets. It do NOT CHANGE vanilla fleets composition. So , this is mod for all those people who love to play pure vanilla game it will not introduce any new weapon, nothing. All variants are in vanilla OP boundaries.
So, to sum it. You will face same vanilla fleets with same ships BUT all ships will have different variants every time new fleet is spawn. Well i hope you like it :)

Update 2.1:
Added new "elite", variants for Paragon (Alex's Paragon ;D, he choose it), Onslaught, Dominator, Odyssey, Medusa, Hammerhead and Enforcer. This variants have 50% more OP so they can simulate AI captains with Technology skill on max :)

Version 2.0
So, what did I do in this version?

Pirates - have own set of variants.
Independents - have own set of variants.
Hegemony - have own set of variants.
Tri - have own set of variants.

This means that all faction will have variants that will only appears in that fraction fleets.


Compatible with other mods that use vanilla fleets compositions.

UOMOZ CORVUS COMPATIBILITY EXPLANATION:

Ok people with LW guidance i manage to make UC compatible with vanilla addon mod. So this is what you must do:

1. Change Corvus.java located in Uomoz Corvus\data\scripts\world\corvus    with this one: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?hacihaq6cj929po

OR

2. In Locate Corvus.java in Uomoz Corvus\data\scripts\world\corvus  open Corvus.java and find this:
Code
                SectorEntityToken token = system.createToken(0, 15000);
HegemonySDFSpawnPoint sdfSpawn = new HegemonySDFSpawnPoint(sector, system, 30, 1, token, hegemonyStation);
spawnSDF(sector, system, hegemonyStation);
         
Now, change last line so it go like this:
Code
                SectorEntityToken token = system.createToken(0, 15000);
HegemonySDFSpawnPoint sdfSpawn = new HegemonySDFSpawnPoint(sector, system, 30, 1, token, hegemonyStation);
  sdfSpawn.spawnFleet();          

Both methods do same thing :)
That is it. Now UC is compatibile with Vanilla addon, but remember if you want to play UC without vanilla addon you must get back that line or entire Corvus.java.

Nice, it's much better not to know exactly what to expect from an enemy. Will stay installed :)


Another thing, do you know if there are any up-to-date  mission packs with vanilla ships?

I wonder if it might be possible to make use of stations... Hint hint.

A tri tach seige on the heg station would be pretty damn cool.

The main problem would be the station, might it be possible to use a bouy?

a station assault is basically impossible at this moment.... unless you make a ship that's basically a station (which would mean it's no longer vanilla), even then you're gonna have to either let it move or it's gonna have trouble deploying...

Yup it would be nice to have ability to deploy station in center of map, but that is for some other mod, this one is simple one :)

Well you could have it deploy and then have it circle a planet for its behavior (I know trylobot for example had fleets of ships orbit another in his nomads mod). In combat you could probaly alter it stats to do what you want (ie really low acceleration)

But you would have to figure out how to let someone access the real station with the other one floating about

In combat you start off screen and if station have very low speed and acc then it will remain off screen for a long time. Now, we could make special burn drive system and with it station could get close to middle of map. Just put one use or recharge time of 30 min so station can use it only once during combat. Now that could work BUT i rather put drone system on station...

If you don't mind, would you kindly upload the mod to some site other than RapidShare? I can access the home page and the download page fine, but I can't actually download it, and when I tried to make an account thinking it will fix the problem I couldn't authenticate it.
