Oh well. It is a core game fix, then. It is mostly a problem when making galaxy screenshots for the forum, and I can live with that :) Almost...

Is there something weird with the spaceport designs of the Riktoh? I have seen two that report size but no components. It could be that they are under construction, but lack resources badly, though.

I think the spaceports just had the "no resources" issue. That being said, I think the spaceport graphics of the Riktoh breaks pretty badly with how the rest of the ship sets look. I guess there may be a limited choice, though.

Thanks moonraker, glad to see you are still enjoying the mod :)

@Bingeling They do look somewhat different in style but in a way I prefer the ships/bases to be more distinct, they are completely different species after all and they should probably look alien to each other ;)
And yes I have more or less got no more ship sets to use. I resorted to begging before the last version to find new sets for the ideas I had. I wanted to keep very identifiable ships out, although I'm sure many of you will recognise some of them. I wouldn't want one of the new races flying the Enterprise or Galactica for example :)

Different shapes and forms are of course what we want. What struck me about the spaceports, was that they were a different art style. And no, the enterprise set would not be better.

Hi! First off, great looking mod. I like how these races can add a whole new way of playing the game. I was wondering though if there is a specific order when downloading this mod. Which one should I download first? Also, is it compatible with other race mods? Thanks!

Id like to try the mod but i get exactly the same error messages that someone else posted before. Theres more bias values than races in line 12 in the bias.txt. I tried redownloading, i checked the text and compared it with the original one but couldnt find anything wrong. Your 2 posts here regarding the problem dont really help cause the guy who had the same bug just said THAT he found a solution but not WHAT exactly the solution is. Your idea with commas at the end of a line doesnt make sense to me cause i cant see any commas at the end of the lines.

I can post the whole error message if needed but its basically exactly the same like the guy posted.

So... i tried a different mod which also adds new factions and i get exactly the same error message there. So i guess something is wrong with my game rather than with the mod. Any idea what this could be?

Make sure your game is at 1.7.0.17.

The previous poster had an issue because he modified the theme himself and broke the bias file.

Thanks for the quick response. I found out what the problem is and i almost cant tell you cause its pretty embarassing but anyway. Didnt play the game for at least a year and didnt realize that there is a 2nd add on. Thought all the new stuff with characters and whatnot was added with a patch. Man i shouldnt try to install mods when im tired as hell...

I'll let you know when it works.

Alright ive got Legends now and patched it and it seems to work just fine now. :)
But the latest version i could find was 1.7.0.16. Is that just a typo of yours or did i miss something (again)?

Check the main forums for Distant Worlds. You need to go to the members section of the Matrix Games site and register your copy of Legends to get 1.7.0.17.

Ah thanks again. But is it necessary to use a beta version? Its super complicated to get it when you dont know how.

There's a thread in the main forum with a link right at the top. Wouldn't really call that complicated, hehe.

Anyways, thanks for this mod. Good to come back after a year and see so much new good stuff around.

I love this extended Mod, Haree78! I played with your earlier version and have installed your 2.0.2 version. Each new game is much more unique with many racial combinations. I noticed you changed some of the alien portraits, which I approved of. I have customized many of the portraits from the cartoon type to the more photographic kind. It increases the illusion of realism. I hope there will be no trouble incorporating your Mod with the Shadows expansion. Thanks, again!

Thanks Fisher, glad you are enjoying it :)
I can't play without it these days, love the variety in my games.

I have another small project I am working on but don't worry Distant Worlds Extended has a current Shadows version which you will see on the release of the expansion probably with some nice new features ;)

Haree... Das has started a new Let's Play on Youtube and he's featuring your mod.

I use this mod exclusively now. Thanks for such a great piece of work. Glad to hear it will be available for Shadows as well. Made my day!

I'll be following this! Thanks for letting me know.

Thanx for you mod. It has made my game a lot more interesting having all 38 races in a massive map.

Does this mod have custom created ship designs to give the AI better ship designs?

Haree: do you mean the next Distant Worlds Expansion, "Legends"? Legends is looking unlikely for a H1 release. The open beta hasn't even begun yet.

That is very exciting that you are creating an improved Extended Mod to go with the Shadow expansion. I guess this is why you have been asking the forum members question about their ship designs. Am I correct? Thanks for your extra efforts in this area.

It's not for me to say stuff about the expansion but contributing to that thread is likely to contribute directly to the expansion so I thank everyone who has found the time.

For some reason the Napoar race causes my game to stutter horribly when I zoom in on them (from the Sector/Galaxy level to the System level). Everything runs fine when I'm not changing my zoom level, but changing just one level (with the mouse-wheel) causes the game to stutter for 3-8 seconds every single time.

I don't get this issue but I will certainly look in to it if I get a chance. Right now, that is difficult though.
