I'm currently on a break from my own modding, so I'm looking at something else. Don't expect it anytime soon, as I seem to have a lot to go through and I don't seem to look at it very often. I'm only posting this because I did some OVERRIDE_ tests today and learned that it doesn't work everywhere. It seems it only works on the tags that vanilla uses it for. A single event in an eventList is a workaround for it not working directly on events. :geek:

Code: Select all

<eventList name="OVERRIDE_INF_START_CREW">
   <event>
      <text>Select a new crew member from the list below.</text>
      <choice hidden="true">
         <text>Human</text>
         <event>
            <crewMember amount="1" class="human"/>
         </event>
      </choice>
      <choice hidden="true">
         <text>Zoltan</text>
         <event>
            <crewMember amount="1" class="energy"/>
         </event>
      </choice>
      <choice hidden="true">
         <text>Engi</text>
         <event>
            <crewMember amount="1" class="engi"/>
         </event>
      </choice>
      <choice hidden="true">
         <text>Mantis</text>
         <event>
            <crewMember amount="1" class="mantis"/>
         </event>
      </choice>
      <choice hidden="true">
         <text>Rock</text>
         <event>
            <crewMember amount="1" class="rock"/>
         </event>
      </choice>
      <choice hidden="true">
         <text>Slug</text>
         <event>
            <crewMember amount="1" class="slug"/>
         </event>
      </choice>
      <choice hidden="true">
         <text>Lanius</text>
         <event>
            <crewMember amount="1" class="anaerobic"/>
         </event>
      </choice>
   </event>
</eventList>

OVERRIDE_FOO causes the thing with the name FOO to be overwritten when AE is on, correct? I didn't realize it worked as a generic option you could stick on to various things (even if it's not everything.) I always figured each OVERRIDE_ was hardcoded or something.

:roll: every day I'm always recolouring ships.

Which I don't mind at all! off course, It makes me feel appreciated and doing this helps a lot of people. Not just 1 person. :D

I will do bomber and kestrel in the black and red pirate colour as well as fed cruiser in white and purple colours if you wish

Well I already nearly finished the bomber.

Here's a tip with it though, darken the outline (colour select it then put black over it) because the normal outline is to light and will blend or is lighter then some shades the fed cruiser type c has, as we noticed. the fed c in game has darker outlines as well.

You're welcome, I would have done the kestrel and fed cruiser by now but as you said you wanted to do it yourself, so I'll just sit here and wait for your results
