Any chance I'll be allowed to upload this as part of my mod when you release version 1? Currently there are two versions of my mod :P, one that has this mod and one that doesn't. I can only upload the one that doesn't. I can't wait for yours and haree's updates for the patch, big updates for orange mod await them as i need to make modifications to the components.txt file. If i get permission to include your mod, i'll only to have to modify one file instead of two.

I just looked at the 1.9.5.5 update.

This is my response in the update thread:


quote:

ORIGINAL: Locarnus

1. You cant force the large fonts on people who paid 100€ and have low dpi monitors. Those need to be optional.

It is as if I buy a car with bright interior and during the next checkup they just paint the whole interior black without asking, because people in sunny and snowy areas complained...

Or amazon changing books on their kindles without asking.

If I want that behavior, I go to EA. From matrixgames I demand a different approach after spending that kind of money!


2. The way you implemented the specific research order is a major blow to partial mods (eg focused on research only) and a massive step towards only total conversion mods.
You kill interchangeability, now modders have to decide whether to make the most of the options (fixed research path) or stay compatible to eg a research mod. You could have asked the affected modders before. But instead you just implemented it, like with the racial research option from the last update.

The constant undiscussed/top down blows to the basis of my mod (modularity, so my research mod works with other mods, eg racial/themed ones) make partial modding impossible.

I therefore have to cancel my BalanceMod, after putting quite some effort in it, after this was marketed to be the modding friendly expansion.
Instead it feels like a paid modding beta with false advertising.




Although the mod always had problems, the last month was a great time.

After all the problems I was going to make the new version and allow resdistribution with 1.0 to be finally part of the Orange mod by Unforeseen.

But at some point I just have to accept that this kind of mod is not wanted by the devs and I dont want to end fighting windmills every week...

It would be so easy to just propose a modding idea in the modding forum and let the actual modders comment on it before it gets implemented...


I thank you all for the support, the bugreports, the suggestions and the great feedback in general.


Also after paying about 100€ for this game in total I feel cheated everytime I look at those massive fonts which were forced down my throat. Despite protets 2 patches ago when it started. You might not agree, but this kind of behavior is unacceptable for me.
1. You cant sell something and then make the customer decide between ergonomics and bugfixes.
2. If you want to emulate the feeling, hit ctrl++ some times and try to surf the web, it is just annoying if someone forces that on you...

In protest I will remove even the current version of the mod if 1.9.5.5 goes live like that. After 100€ and protests 2 weeks ago, I will not support a company that makes such decisions.

I can say that we absolutely do want this kind of mod and I really regret your reaction, given that several of the improvements we made modding-wise were based on your requests. You can see my response here:

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/fb.asp?m=3647603

It's more clear reading your additional comments here that the font changes are your biggest concern. Hopefully as work in that area continues, you'll change your mind and be willing to return.

I thank you for addressing my concerns, I remember the reactor changes and wish you well.

But the 2 main problems remain.
1. Undiscussed implementation of modding features which are very problematic for modularity.
2. The forced font size changes.

I had an ebook removed by amazon via "update" and everytime I start the game now, eg for playtesting the mod, it reminds me that there need to be boundaries.
This behavior is just unacceptable and I will fight it where and how I can.


edit: This step was not easy and I ll certainly come back. After all I had lots of fun with DW and the great community and you devs did an amazing job. At the moment/current state those 2 issues are just too much combined.

Just calm down loacrnus, you are great modder, and maybe tired, i can help you update files(ext and vanilla universe) to the latest patch, if you want! Than you can care with more important things.

@Erik and @Locarnus

The problem of modularity and extension for the modding feature can only be solved with compatibility headers.

Each file would have to be headered with tags like
< MOD_NAME = Universe; VERSION = 1.9.5.5>
OR
< MOD_NAME = Balanced; VERSION = 1.0 >

Each possible dependency would then be optionally tagged

< MOD_COMPATIBILITY = Universe; VERSION = 1.9.5.4; BACKWARD = TRUE >
Would indicate the following line is compatible with the current mod and the Universe Theme Version 1.9.5.4 or earlier. Any other combination would throw an alert window and let the player decide if they want to roll the dice.

Of course this can use some refinement in order to reduce the extra tagging. And Erik needs to be up to the task to adding compatibility test module.

Something I dont understand:

Why are you upset by this change?
NEW MODDING FEATURE: defined Research path. Optionally allow specifying project order for a race for each tech tree (see new entries in race files: WeaponsResearchProjectOrder, EnergyResearchProjectOrder, HighTechResearchProjectOrder)

You only need to use the default files, and your mod will work.

Somone will then use your mod and play with those file to improve the AI with your mod active.
If someone want to integrate your work, he will need to ajust his mod to be compatible with yours.

Modding in Skyrim work like that. If someone want to use all the mod, he have 2 choices: make compatibility patch, or dont use non-essential mod incompatible with others.

Anyway I think u have done a mod that was shaping up nicely. I hope you will eventualy want to finish it.

Sorry for my english, would be easier to write in french. And in any case I dont want to insult you. If something does, I will change the sentence :P or write it in french.

@PsyKoSnake

The problem occurs when you add the research path to a Race definition. There is no way to guarantee the Research file will have the research items referred to by the research path. Thus a Race file created that works with Extended will crash a Vanilla Research install and vice versa. Therefor a Race mode will be specific to the accompanying research tree.

Secondary possible solution the data loading module try's the race load against the research tree and a throw results in the loader rejecting the research path and continuing on.

For exemple: If he want to make it for The extended mod. he would need to ajust each race file and each researh file?
Then it would not be compatible with the vanilla installation?

If that is the case, he only need to choose if he want to make the mod for extended or vanila or any other mod.
If The mod Autor for extended want to make it compatible with the balance mod, why would Locarnus create an other version? (He can if he want but that would be some work

I hope you don't cancel your mod, this is the mod I want most! Is there anyway we can make the font size selectable instead of just one or the other? Sorry if this has been answered before.

Please continue Locarnus this mod was top of the list to play.

Maybe leave race specific research build orders to a future release and just use what already existed e.g. ResearchTechFocus?

I appreciate that, I'm disappointed to see your seriously considering canceling. This is an extremely needed mod. Easily a must have. It is "quite" frustrating that somewhat major features to research were added without any kind of discussion or input from the community[that i have noticed]in the middle of the development of such a key mod.

As useful as those features may be, I and i think much of the community at this point would probably rather have this mod than those features.

Not Really, The ai will be better because of Icemania mod, using these feature.

I dont say this mod is not needed:P But the best would be to have both.

Anyway only time will tell if he come back or not.

Perhaps idk, i kinda prefer not to use it. It might make the AI better true, but I don't like the idea of a static AI behavior. Will have to wait and see what happens with it.

I suppose an ideal scenario here would be for Haree and Locarnus and Icemania to all cooperate and combine mods. Naturally i would incorporate their combined mod into my mod. As mine only requires a small number of component.txt changes for the weapon images.

I agree the AI research order at the moment is not static. It's not static because it has a somewhat random component. This isn't much of a loss as it adds nothing strategically.

If the Distant Worlds AI was an Adaptive AI (that responded to other empires and circumstances with Strategic changes) I would fully agree with you. Of course that will have to wait for Distant Worlds 2.

Very happy work to together with Locarnus and Haree78 at their discretion. My initial focus is Vanilla and I'm very happy to share the files as they develop.

I am all for the research paths improvement. Right now the 'dynamic' ( random ) AI research ends up researching non essentials and doesn't coordinate well with the ship design templates.
I think the research paths should be a separate file so partial mods will continue to work.

Well technically anyone who still has a copy of the mod can "redo" the changes he made and credit him for the original idea and effort. It wouldn't be a redistribution. They aren't changes that only he can specifically do, anyone could have gone in there and messed with the txts to get the same result. I personally downloaded a copy of .87 as soon as I found out he was going to take it down.

I do think this whole font war thing is a bit stupid to be honest. It isn't your game, it's the devs game. If they want the font to be a particular size than it they have every right to do that. They aren't "punishing" anyone, because you can STILL READ IT and that is all that should matter.

Nope, that would be a redistribution.
As I cant just copy paste the contents of the Distant Worlds files and distribute them.

If I rent an appartement, the landlord cant just come in and paint the walls black while doing maintenence on other areas. It is illegal.
And I didnt rent it, I bought the game.

And the argument "You can still read it" is frankly an insult. If you press ctrl++ in your browser for a few times, you can still read, but forcing that on you after you paid for the product is outrageous.


I did put quite some effort in it and I will finish the project, when Elliot and Erik get their priorities straight and revert their step from the recent EA like approach.

As with the StarTrek mod, redistribution/reverse engineering is not ok, this project is not even abandoned and I take that seriously!
If you want the mod to continue, tell Erik and Elliot that an EA business style with regards to customers is acceptable and certainly not compatible with a community that cares and mods as before...

Hmm I don't agree about the redistribution. I didn't suggest "copying" your work from the file. I suggested using it as a guideline to write up a new one. "redo" But I may not have worded it well enough.

You do NOT own the rights to the game friend. I'm not trying to get into this with you but the company here owns the right to modify the game however they want whether you payed for it or not. You merely have the right to choose not to accept those updates by not downloading them.

In other words, they are not "forcing" you to do anything. You are voluntarily downloading the update that changes the font.
