View Full Version : Shiplist numbering?

Anyone know what those numbers are in Shiplist.txt? I imagine they control some variables, but what? Below is an example of what I mean:

!SPECIES_1!Xwing,Fighter,Flyable,Known,Skirmish, 6 ,9 ,13 ,20 ,4 ,13 ,32 ,43

What do the 6 ,9 ,13 ,20 ,4 ,13 ,32 ,43 represent?

The reason I'm asking is I want to see if I can modify ships speed, shields, and weapons. If there is an easier way other than editing those numbers (if that's how it's done in the first place), what is it?

I was thinking or fusing shields and firepower of an SSD with an X-W. Can it be done?

no. that part in the TXT is mainly for how the craft is used, and where the OPT is. We dont know what the codes are for (yet)

To modify the ship stats you need a EXE editor, like BinHexED, or MXvTED

Oh. Ok!

Are they somewhat user friendly, or overly complex?

whatever you do, do NOT edit his ships (that includes the stats, he gets very very very upset about it
