Within those threads I have uploaded the mods directly to one of my hosted servers, and now everyone can access through my servers SSL for a direct download. [:D] (I hate Rapidshare)




Erik Rutins -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (4/17/2010 4:17:07 AM)

Thank you, lordxorn. I agree completely that the mods posted and in progress so far are impressive and I'm glad you are giving these some more attention. We plan to add more support for modding in the future, as soon as time allows.

That brings up a good point worth mentioning. That is outstanding news that there are further plans to expand the support for modding, which there has been already OUTSTANDING support for the mod community. For example the Customization Guide being released days before Distant Worlds street date. So even though DW has been criticized for it's lesser degree of what is open in terms of mods, there is already a plethora of community content.

So props to Matrix/Codeforce as well! [:)]




fabio80mi -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (4/17/2010 7:12:41 AM)

Awesome !
Finally after threads in the mod section, in the wishlist, and in the general forum an answer about the very limited modding present atm and the intention to add real modding in the future :D






JonathanStrange -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (4/17/2010 4:17:10 PM)

Beautiful stuff here! I'm certain that most DW players will love the mods. Thanks for your work! And for sharing!




Druthlen -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (4/17/2010 6:49:23 PM)

So I downloaded some of the cool ships and extraxted them into images/units/ships/family10

why arent they showing up? do i need to replace a older style to get these in the game? could someone explain how I can use these new models in game. Thanks.

Almost spot on.
You need them to replace an existing set.
Refer to the customisation guide if you want to avoid overwriting your original files by using a theme folder. Altenatively you could back up and replace but I wouldn't reccomend it.
Either way you need to use your ship set In place of an existing set.

Mr. Rutins,

I like your attitude, but needs a dash more soonerratherthanlater-thusiasm. (Although, i do understand that its not always the choice of an employee to pick the next project)

But one thing i will state right here (the interwebs) and right now, When pricing, components, research trees, and component/research types are externalized (and hopefully a scriptable economy pricing based on supply/demand so the mod maker can tweak to his liking), I will buy your game, and so will everyone I know or I will kill them.
I will also buy the sequel if the above conditions are met.
Also to ice the cake ill spam-vertize you across unconventional online massive communication (4chan etc.)

Keep up the good work guys this game has serious potential, I'd like to see its chastity belt taken off.




Shark7 -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (5/20/2010 2:28:06 PM)

Need to add this thread to the list, its a shipNames.txt file (with possibly more on the way) to give a little flavor to the game.

I hear you on that and thank you for your patience. We do plan to give modders quite a bit more to have fun with, but to date we've had to prioritize that a bit lower than fixing the reported issues. It is fairly high on our list though, but it is also a fair amount of work to really expose some of these things.




lordxorn -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (5/22/2010 3:45:52 AM)

Updated both [:D]

LOL, forgot to include my own. Updating now. I made this thread before my own. [:D]




thiosk -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (5/23/2010 11:44:51 AM)

I for one, am looking forward to more moddability.

The flexability of the game means we have the potential to do a lot with it.
I am interested in working towards a warhammer 40k mod, for sure.




the1sean -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (5/23/2010 6:50:45 PM)

I cant wait until we can ADD MORE SHIPS, and CUSTOMIZE RACES, without replacing the great stuff that is currently in the game. I would also like a button that we could press to make all races present in a game so we dont have to manually go through and select each one individually. Also, it would be nice if when you go to customize a game it saved your options from the last custom game you made, that way I wouldnt have to keep entering the same values in again every time I start a new game.




Shark7 -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (5/23/2010 8:52:51 PM)

I've released a new shipnames.txt, the Imperial Japanese Navy Edition, same thread as Royal Navy Edition




2guncohen -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (5/23/2010 10:04:43 PM)

I think i can make one of the administrators to make a official sticky for mods [:D]
This community realy needs it !!!




Shark7 -> RE: Just some Props!! Mod Community in Full Force (5/28/2010 5:12:19 AM)

Added a new sound clip for the Message_Alarm.wav (the warning Klaxon) that is just a 4 second clip of silence. Much less annoying. [:)]
