Sorry for double posting, but it is a new question.

I see that the vanilla dlcEventsOverwrite.xml has an OVERRIDE_ITEMS event list. However, I can't find anywhere that calls this event list. There are no references to this event list anywhere else in the XMLs.

When do these events happen in game?

there is a list called "ITEMS". OVERRIDE_ITEMS is a version for AE. So, I think that if you add an event to list ITEMS, it will be used when you disable AE content. But if you add an event to OVERRIDE_ITEMS, it will be used when you enable AE content. I could be wrong though.

I need help again. I added this event to my mod. It's a modified version of FUEL_FOR_DRONES from SleeperService's CE. The first <choice> tag is the one I'm having trouble with. When I find this event, it doesn't load BP_RANDOM_WEAPON (which is another event I added, and it works fine when called by every other event I tested). The fuel is removed, but there's no "Continue..." and the augment that BP_RANDOM_WEAPON was supposed to give does not appear.

I've looked at other events that work in a similar way, I've ran it through SMM's validator, I've read FTL-log.txt and modman-log.txt, and I could find nothing wrong.

Code: Select all

<event name ="FUEL_FOR_BLUEPRINT">
   <text>You arrive in the sector and are greeted by a science vessel waiting by the beacon. They hail you, "We find ourselves low on fuel and have a proposition. DEBUG THIS IS FUEL_FOR_BLUEPRINT"</text>

You need to add new enemy ships to blueprintList located in dlcBlueprintsOverwrite.xml

Go to your mod folder, locate dlcBlueprintsOverwrite.xml.append, and add code like that there. Replace the name of the list, and ship names with yours.

Code: Select all

<mod:findName type="blueprintList" name="OVERRIDE_SHIPS_AUTO">
   <mod-append:name>MY_SHIP_0</mod-append:name>
   <mod-append:name>MY_SHIP_1</mod-append:name>
</mod:findName>

Is there a mod that puts extra crewmembers that you get (above 8) into the cargo hold, and make them sellable? I'd like to play with the 8 crew limit but I hate to see extra crew that you get through events wasted.

I'm new to modding, and I'm trying to make a weapon that can pop shield bubbles to allow other projectiles through, but doesn't do any hull damage. Is this possible? I have tried setting the normal damage to 0.5, as well as setting normal damage to 0 with system damage at 1, but neither of these worked. Is there another tag/set of values I can use to accomplish this? Thanks in advance.

So,I'm new here on the forums but I've been playing CE:Infinite and CE:Infinite Endless Loot together for QUITE a while,and I'm afraid the game just can't load certain weapon reskins/textures,as it just freezes RIGHT BEFORE loading them.
Be aware that I'm talking about Endless Loot weapon reskins specificly,and ONLY them.
So,I jumped to a node where I'm in an AI construction hangar,an uncommon sight,but nothing too much to handle...
OH BUT WAIT,when the dialogue screen pops up,it presents me with only ONE option,which is to continue. As soon as I click "Continue",the game freezes solid and crashes every time. I have backed up the save so at the very least I can keep reloading it EVEN IF it isl ost during a crash.
Heres what it looks like: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1919949921
If ANYONE knows how to fix this issue,PLEASE respond! I'm positive the issue is with CE: Infinite Endless Loot,but I have no idea what to do and I'm desperate =(
