Feature Request - Level options
« on: April 13, 2018, 04:36:05 PM »
My apologies if this has been asked for previously:
This for all games but primarily for From the Ground Up.
1. Option to limit the tech levels of yourself and each faction.
2. Option to exclude Ships
Its to make it a bit more diverse and challenging for me playing primarily.
3. As well if possible for Player 1 to randomize each new game to start at a different location.
If its easier by editing a few XML files just point me in the right direction (Limiting Tech Levels). Disclaimer: I'm not a programmer nor developer but rather a lazy admin.
Thank you Corey, development team, and those on this forum that i have learned a lot from.
All typed while waiting for the download of 2.2 to finish.....
And now for DreamCrusher to earn his name :)

Please ensure this gets moved to EaW Discussion!

While not impossible, this would be exceedingly complicated.

2. Option to exclude Ships

This can't be done, especially for factions beyond the IR, NR and EotH. You can do it for those three, but that involves putting in a different button for every ship and then if you click it it gets locked. That would be a huge mess. If you want to not have certain ships, basically all I can say is don't build those ships.

Another thing that's probably not impossible, but would be difficult to do, and you'd end up with a lot of frustrating starts, especially since that that point you can't have a default.
I also have a YouTube channel where I talk about mod development and gaming, do tutorials, and Let's Plays. If you like the content, consider supporting it on Patreon
