shipsection / weapon quick editor tool

Post by SavageV » Wed Feb 01, 2017 4:44 am

This tool is as awesome as it is tiny.

Here's how to make modify all your Liir ships to travel 1.5x faster (FTL):

cd Species\Liir\sections
s1edit * * shipsection.ftlspeed "* 1.5"

or perhaps you'd like to make them cost half as much:

s1edit * * shipsection.cpoints "* 0.5"

or maybe 33% more forward acceleration?

s1edit * * shipsection.netforcelimits.force_forward "* 1.33"

You'll need to be familiar with how to unzip/zip and modify sots.ini for SOTS1. You'll also need .NET 4.6.1.

SOTS2 editor also included.

Enjoy. It'll probably vanish from that site after 100 days.

A little better than that - it appears to do simple math.

I used perl for the same purpose - regex to find expression, parse them - and then do simple math to adjust values across all files of a given type.
