How can one modify key settings mid-game?

Post by jiggyjiggy » Fri Jul 20, 2018 2:31 pm

Let's say you're already many turns deep into a game and you want to modify the efficiencies.

How does one go about doing that?

I guess it has something to do with editing the .Sav file, but I have no idea how to actually do it.

I don’t recall for sure where key bindings are... maybe in your player profile. I don’t think they are in the save file. If they are in the player profile you should be able to save your game, exit, edit the player profile in a text editor, then re-launch the game. Or else you can use a programmable mouse or other device to set things up how you want.
Zed's TARs (sample):
Fractious Allies -- Hiver vs. Hiver, with allies
Who Let The Bugs Out -- Hiver vs. Tarka and Zuul
Tarka Ascendant -- Tarka vs. Hiver and Zuul

Then I don’t know what your first post means by modifying efficiency.

Ah, dunno if anyone has tried to dig into the save game files to try to find those, it’s easier just to start a new game.

but if you're many turns deep, you're stuck in a rut.

Save game editor, tab Players. For each player you can change research eff, production eff, money eff, growth rate, mining gain rate(not tested this)...
