Mod Tools

Recommended Posts

All right i got it but the AMO file from baidu keep failing halfway. Is there another link i can get?

 

Ok finally managed to download it.

 

I opened the mod tool and played around with it a little. So far i can more or less understand it except for 1 thing. What does the set default button on the effects tab (and others) do?

 

I made a few changes and then tried compiling. Everything seems fine so about 5% in i went to sleep. But come this morning, there is nothing on the screen. No error message, no new mdm file and the mod tool is closed. So what could be the problem here? Is my computer unable to compile it or did i make a illegal change?

Your computer is probably not powerful enough to compile it.

 

On another note, I notice that the Mod Tools had no icons of its own, and it bothered me so much that I made one with much effort!

Is there any chance of the source code of year 1 to be released at some point?

 

I'm sure there are some players like me, who want to fiddle around with the code, looking at how stuff works.

It would make modding much easier, knowing how everything is calculated and such.

 

Most of the development effort by the team is now going to year 2, so it's likely that some stuff will never be fixed in Y1, which would be a shame, moreso because the new year expands on what happened in the first year. I'm thinking of performance fixes, bug fixes, AI improvement, and perhaps even feature additions.

Will we get the updated Mod Tool with the final Mod Base release?

 

Oh and I just realised that the last mod base we got is already over 11 month old so if you want to keep around the same time of the last 2 releases the next Mod Base probably should come out with the next DLC.

Any chance someone can re-upload the AMO to another host? My connection's a bit unstable and even with retrying a bit I can't expect it to stay up longer than 3 hours straight or so without a short download-breaking outage.

The baidu.com link is the only one I found in this thread that isn't dead, but its download speed is too slow for me to realistically get the file.

Well if your connection drops out occasionally maybe you should install a download manager. I remember using one of those back when I used a connection with a maximum download pr month (which they enforced by cutting the connection every few seconds for some reason). It should allow you to retain progress each time your connection drops and pick up where you left off at least as long as the connection comes back within a few seconds. Worth considering if you aren't going to get a better connection.

 

Anyway I downloaded it and reuploaded it to another site, not sure how long it stays up though (I think they delete them if it takes too long before next download).

 

Here: AMO.rar

Pretty much none of the links work except for the one CremePudding posted. Here is said link. The white button in the middle of the screen is the download button, and if you get another prompt go with whatever button is the least decorative and catchy - I suspect the second prompt is a Premium account something-or-another whatever, but I can't confirm that.

 

And if you need a link to the DLC15 .amm mod base, this one still works.

 

Also an FYI: Unless you still have Windows XP, there's a bug with the mod tools where it won't allow you to make any changes within the "Main Text" tab, so you won't be able to add/change adventures or events properly.

Couple of questions. I think some of them have been said before but I getting confused.

#1 I remember reading about a new mod tool. We will have access to it eventually?

#2 Will DLC 16 need a new mod base?

#3 How about 17? (if it's known)

As far as I know:

 

#1: Yes, it should be released after Y2 is released

#2: Yes if you wish to change/look at anything that DLC 16 added, otherwise no

#3: Yes, same story as above.

1) The new mod tool we will get for year 2 will probably only work for year 2.

2 and 3) Not sure when we get a new Mod Base because for all 15 DLC so fare we only got 4 updates in the Mod Base and the last one was for DLC 15. So fare we only can't look at the things added and changed in CP 3.

Been a while since I've been back here. Seeing that publishing takes some time, would it be best to use all the original files for the very first version of the game as a base to create and publish a mod? Or would it be best to wait for the mod tool release?

What mod tool release are you talking about? To my knowledge the mod tool of year 1 we got is at it is and there wont be any changes or updates because of licence issues.

That's a shame. I was hoping that we would get something that would allow us to publish faster or even publish at all. The old ones ( the ones we get ) doesn't seem to make any progress publishing the mod, or it's taking a huge chunk of time to go even 1%.
